Covered in scrawled writing saying "shabbih" and “Nouseiri shabbih,” Bazzazi was dragged 3 kilometers through the streets of Tripoli by a hoard of angry Lebanese by a rope tied around his neck.

The incident began when a local man "Bairuti" asked to see Bazzazi's papers, and assaulted him when he saw his Syrian military document. Bairuti, gathering a crowd around him, then accused Bazzazi of being a spy and proceeded to beat him in public.

This occurred only a day after a peace rally in Tripoli.
