A fierce brawl broke out in Beirut’s Abou Shaker Square in Tariq el-Jadideh among knife wielding groups, the National News Agency reported on Friday.

Consequently, several shops in the region closed their doors fearing repercussions, amid loud screaming and threats traded by both sides of the fight.

According to locals, the fight had broken out last night and renewed today. The reason remain unknown.

Members of the Internal Security and the Army arrived at the scene and launched investigation into the incident.
