The 13th of November was a day of mourning for the martyr Alaa Abu Fakher who was killed the night before in front of his family.
Demonstrators organized sit-ins and held candle-lit vigils in cities across Lebanon.
A portrait of Alaa was painted on a building’s wall in Tripoli.
A symbolic funeral procession was held in Beirut’s Riyad El Solh with the martyred revolutionary’s loved ones also participating.
Thousands of protestors made way to the Baabda Palace following Aoun’s speech, which was one of the first major demonstrations in the area since the start of the revolution.
Protesters tried to remove the barricades and barbed wires that blocked the main highway leading to Baabda, but were blocked by security forces who made it impossible for them to advance to the palace area.
Roads were blocked across the country. There were clashes that took place in some regions of the country between protestors and those who tried to open the roads.
What started as some minimal disagreements between the protesters and local residents of Jal el Dib ended up increasing in violence with unknown assailants arriving to the scene with knives and sticks.
A man later drove towards the protesters and shot into the air as he stepped out of the car.
Security forces were slow to intervene, but protesters managed to push the man to the ground and disarm him.
Nabih Berri, Speaker of the House, filed a complaint the State Prosecution against Al-Jadeed TV alleging that the channel has committed slander against him and incited sectarian tension.
