An armed gunman robbed on Saturday Byblos Bank's Jnah branch in Beirut, reported the National News Agency.

It said that the gunman, dressed in from head to toe in black, entered the bank, robbed it at gunpoint, and fled to an unknown location.

Voice of Lebanon radio (100.5) said he fled on motorbike to the Bir Hassan neighborhood in Beirut.

In December, the Military Tribunal charged 12 people with robbing a number of banks and the attempted murder of a soldier and two judges.

Al-Joumhouria newspaper reported in September that the bank robbery network had a list to target several politicians and officials.

I'm afraid this is what happens when a poor country goes through the sort of inflation we've gone through. I expect the crime rate to keep increasing. People are going to put food on the table, one way or another

The poor will eat each other first. That's the problem.

Pity the people who can only unite by having a common enemy or the same person to bully.

you should amend your statement to say compliments of Syria/Hizb Iran and Iran, because frankly the robbery occurred in a Shia area and the guys fled to an area dominated by Amal and HI.

Maybe if the government concentrated on law and order by preventing these robberies (more officers, cameras on streets, etc), they may get a head start--but reacting is never good.
