As fighting erupts across an old front line in Beirut, Al Jazeera’s senior correspondent Lebanon Zeina Khodr shares her experiences reporting on a country mired in multiple crises. On October 14, she reported live as gunshots rang out around her and her crew. The clashes unfolded right near the infamous Green Line. The area has come to symbolise the sectarianism that many blame for devastating Lebanon’s economy and for entrenching a class of political elites who continue to fail to pull the country out of crisis.
