NNA - The Parliament Police Command on Friday issued a statement elaborating on the inaccurate news and partial videos which were broadcasted by some media outlets and social media on the incidents that occurred in front of the northern entrance to the parliament's guards.


The statement said: "Some protestors hurled stones, eggs and tomatoes at a number of MPs passing convoys."


"Yet, after some demonstrators attempted to break into the security barrier and assault protection guards... and after they [demonstrators] forcibly stripped one of the servicemen from his arms and shoved him on the ground, the Parliament's guards had to intervene to free their comrade from the demonstrators' grip," statement clarified.
