Thousands rally in Baabda in support of Aoun, Bassil
Supporters of the Free Patriotic Movement and President Michel Aoun gathered Sunday near Baabda Palace, in a demonstration of support after weeks of anti-government protests. Thousands of supporters, holding Lebanese and FPM flags and wearing orange clothes and FPM accessories, took cars and buses across Lebanon to the gathering point at a road leading to the presidential palace.
The state-run National News Agency reported that convoys were sent from locations across the country, from Tripoli to Nabatieh.
A large convoy set off from in front of the FPM’s office in Batroun, with supporters raising banners reading, “Freedom, sovereignty, independence.”
