dividing line that dates back to the civil war that ended in 1990. 2 long time enemies current, part of a root into a battle ground. bullets bounce from buildings as people ran for cover. and children evacuated from school. we need the children to low levels and then we waited until the parents came to take their children. the children were going to panic and fear they cried and screamed a large army deployment failed to control the situation. supporters of muslim, she are political groups and has the law were hunkered down. and she asked the neighborhood on the other side of the street where the supporters of the christian lebanese forces party, there were casualties. many of them civilians hit by stray bullets, some while hiding in their homes. the clashes are now in their 3rd hour. it is one of the most serious about the violence in recent years. the tensions were over
7:03 pm
a judge leading an investigation into last 2 years. explosion at the report has belong. i'm a say. the confrontations began when the lebanese sniper ambush protestors making their way to the justice palace where they demand the removal of judge tarik. because they blamed the lebanese forces for the attack, a charge. the group denied. the real threat lies in the use of weapons and those who have targeted peaceful demonstrators. there were peaceful demonstrations everywhere during the past 2 years. but we have not seen such an attack against them. the dangerous escalation followed political pensions over the investigation which has already paralyzed. the government has fallen, are threatening to pull their ministers, which means an entire sect would be absent in violation of the country, sectarian power sharing agreement, the opposition and of stating a coo and using arms to impose their way ever since his beloved arms. no

longer had any function except fighting wars than syria or assuming agenda. and now imposing on the new state, what the justice is allowed to do and not to do what a judge can decide or can decide. and they're drawing red lines around ministers who are caught up and accused, and they're saying they are above the law. the guns eventually fell silent, but it further divided and already polarized society, there appears to be an undeclared truth, but the crisis is not over. demands for the judges dismissal, have not gone away. those against him say he is politicized those who support him, and that includes the families of victims. so he is among the rare judges who aren't politically affiliated in a country where there is a culture of impunity and those in power act for them to learn more than 200 people
7:05 pm
were killed in the last that destroyed labor. what happened today was a show, a force by has bella and its allies, essentially giving the lebanese public false choice, either stability, ah, without justice or of justice, but no stability. this is just the latest in a series of attempts by has by law and the ruling leads to undermine, obstruct and blocks the domestic investigation into the bay lap. the balance of power is not in judge the car favor, but he did try to take on the powerful, which is almost unheard of in lebanon's history. it pushed the country to the brink and brought back scenes from a turbulent past. that may have been a warning of what might come santa hood or else rosita president michele own has in the last half hour or so just address the nation condemning the violence. whereas i know nor your side is that the we will never allow anyone to hijack the country of
7:06 pm
what has happened to day will be followed on both levels of the judiciary and the security and investigations were reach the reality and the truth. and the fact that those perpetrators will be taken to the court in the investigation of the barrett port blast will continue. because it's a commitment to whether the lebanese people and towards the international community to law based on the independence of the judicial, your arm, and either ok, let's take a closer look at where this all happened. she protested, we're heading for the cities palace of justice, calling to the removal of the judge leading the port blast investigation. the army says crowds came under fire at 2 unit traffic circle there. chaos then ensued. it broke out with rockets and intense gun fire for more than 4 hours. it all happened right on the sides of a decades old sectarian fault line. it's the so called green line. it's separated muslim and christian factions during lebanon's 15 year long civil war. it ended in
7:07 pm
1990 but divisions there are still deeply entrenched on the west is chia predominantly home to sheer muslims, and the has bala and amal, political groups, and on the east is ein al romani, a long time stronghold of the christian lebanese forces. political movement and on thursday, the army was once again between them, trying to bring the violence under control keeping us company at ramey corey. he is director of global engagement at the american university in beirut. what's the most significant aspect of what we've seen today? remy? i think what's really new and significant is that you have people in lebanon standing up to hezbollah openly, even with arms other limited level. this is so significant, we had other incidents on the last 9 months or so where people also stood up to hezbollah amount violently. and this is a sign that has been lows power while it is dominant in the country is
7:08 pm
not necessarily applauded by all ebony is. and we've known this that the countries about half with his bottom half mount with has been the, this is the people don't like what has well as doing see it as a arm of iran. and they don't like that. but this is unusual to have people stand up to, has been like this openly. and i think has been, is really in a difficult situation, the strongest party and lebanon, by all accounts. but they are politically not so strong. they're not very proficient at political bargaining. their, their, their award winners at resistance and military action. they're really good. they're terrific at supporting their community and others in lebanon with their social activism. things they've done, but they're not very good, a political bargaining, and they're, they have to learn this if they want to be in the, in the political game. and they've always hedged about being in the political
7:09 pm
system or outside of the accepted to be in parliament. they accepted to have people name to the cabinet some years ago, but they've never fully gone into the political game of power sharing with, with active politicians as all the other area groups, what they've done to support the system from outside. and this has caused some great criticism now because the whole system has been a massive failure. we saw 2 different but equally speedy reactions to the events on the streets of period. they won, the army was involved right in the middle quite quickly. i know you feel that's quite unusual. we also, relatively quickly we heard from michelle, i was just in the last for 35 minutes so. so. but will his comments change anything substantially at all by themselves? his comments are significant, they armies actions are significant. these are things that love these people, like they want to have
7:10 pm
a decisive but fair government. but they can't unilaterally make decisions. they have to basically negotiate among the different sectarian groups. and this is the weakness of the system that it's a perpetual bizarre, of political power and incumbency and influence. but the system has collapsed. it's failed completely. the 7080 percent of the lebanese are poor. there's no, virtually no electricity. it's, it's unbelievable the degradation that has happened in lebanon to the governance system, to the society and his interest structure and to the psyche and well being of the average citizen, it's almost unprecedented. there's very few countries in the world that have suffered this while the people responsible stay in power. and when you talk about those people who are responsible, staying in power part of the narrative, it's almost the same conversation that we've had over the past few days on this channel about the elections in iraq. part of the narrative is, corruption,
7:11 pm
is the lubricant of politics in lebanon. politicians always come back to us and say, we will get rid of the corruption dot, dot, dot. therefore the politicians have got to resign, but they never resign. and the people who do resign are then outside the tent, criticizing the people inside the tent, but the people outside the tent, the former politicians, have no political power in this whole vortex continues precisely. and that's why i thought it is such a historic, significant figure to the judge for him to pursue this investigation with the vigor that he has as really unusual. and when the president says we're going to catch the people and hold them accountable again, you have to listen to that carefully because you had a special tribunal for lebanon. that was up by the un, hundreds of millions of dollars, years of investigations. they finally convicted for people, some of them length or has by law and,
7:12 pm
and these people were never found. has bella would never allow their people to be arrested or convicted like this. and probably none of the other political groups, if some of their people are, are found guilty. so the ability of the central government in this current configuration with its court system, where this security system to actually try and convict and then arrest and detain or imprison people who are convicted on a fair trial. but those capabilities have, don't really exist right now. we haven't seen it when it's dealing with top political level. they do catch small thieves, crooks of people who steal stuff, people who murder people. the system has worked much better now. and those lebanese are slowly taking hold of their own governance system and the judiciary and the, and the security which had been totally under she were in control before. but when it gets to the top level, like this has been the some of the christian groups,
7:13 pm
they can't penetrate them. they can't hold them accountable. that might change as possible. you might see big demonstrations in the streets now, which is likely. but these big demonstrations don't prove anything either. they've done this for many, many years. and both sides have their big demonstration. they're, they're pretty equally matched the 2 sides and lebanon. now, me korean, it's a very difficult situation. and there's no clarity about how it's going to, and remy apologies for interrupting you there. but we got a good sense of what you think this might go next. thank you so much. still come here on al jazeera, for a gypsy offices, accused of killing the italian student julia rey, genie in 2016. go on trial in road, but they will not appear in court. high level talks in london, the, the u. k. need to discuss the future of the border between northern island and the republic. ah,
