Press photo dated 17 June, 1958 with caption that reads: “What the well-dressed young Lebanese are wearing these days is well illustrated by this member of the rebel forces as he guards a railway line at Sidon, south of Beirut. Bitter fighting in Beirut over the weekend brought a mounting toll of casualties as rebel forces, seeking to overthrow President Camille Chamoun’s pro western government, clashed with government security guards.”
