Scuffle Briefly Halts Inspection of Passengers at RHIA

The Inspection of passengers at the Rafik Hariri International Airport in Beirut was briefly disrupted after a scuffle between members of the ISF and the airport police, media reports said on Wednesday.

They said a dispute erupted between members of the ISF and the Lebanese Army.

Activity resumed normalcy shortly after.

It is not a first for Lebanon’s airport to witness disruption, as conflict between political parties seems to take its toll on the country's only commercial airport.

It is not a first for Lebanon’s only commercial airport to witness disruption. For over five years, the terminal has reportedly been working well above capacity.

Early in September, an outage of the luggage and registration processing system stranded thousands of passengers who sat for hours waiting in crowded halls at the terminal.
