Who is Yassin Fawaz and why did he cause a stampede among the citizens yesterday?

A large number of Lebanese and foreigners flocked to meet Yassin Fawaz, known as “King Rolodex” and the Shiite candidate for Beirut II in the parliamentary elections.

It is rumored that Fawaz distributed dollars to people and documented the footage on social media, which sparked great controversy among followers.

Due to the bad circumstances that the Lebanese are facing, disagreements occurred between them late at night as they rushed to meet him.

In this context, Fawaz clarified to Sawt Beirut International that security protection was not provided to the large crowd, accusing the media of manufacturing misleading information regarding the reason for the overwhelming presence. “I did not run for fame, but for the benefit of the needy Lebanese,” he added.
