A scuffle broke out in the southern city of Sidon on Saturday as security forces attempted to removed street vendors from a local market, reported the National News Agency.

Five people were wounded when the security forces, backed by the army, attempted to remove the carts off the streets of the city's vegetable market.

A clash soon ensued between those opposing the decision and others backing it.

Sticks and knives were used in the clash and a number of people have since been arrested for investigation.

The decision to remove the carts was taken by the Sidon municipality four days ago.

The 3araneyet are located near (but outside) the old 7isbeh, on the jabbeneh (= cemetary) wall which has been renovated this year. They should go away, they opened a new 7isbeh for them on the new autostrad free of charge for the sellers BUT only accessible to people with cars, hence slow business for those who respected the municipal decree. There are no buildings in the area... No locals.

Anyway, the ISF and army should use the force if they have to.
