Students affiliated to the Lebanese Forces complained that they had received threats after taking down pictures of Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah that were posted on the Jbeil campus walls .
LF said Hizbullah-affiliated students on Wednesday posted Nasrallah pictures in the LAU campus’s parking lot, causing tension among undergraduates.
It said Hizbullah students confronted fellow LF learners as they tried to take down the posters.
LF students said they had received threatening phone calls from a number of Hizbullah and AMAL students at both LAU’s Beirut and Byblos campuses.
They said security forces managed to quell the situation.
But Hizbullah students made a second try at posting Nasrallah pictures in the same place. LF students waited a while before taking down the new posters.
