Lebanese soldiers break into tears after being told to confront protesters

Despite their heavily armed exterior, it seems that at their core, Lebanon's soldiers are not immune to the powerful emotions coursing through the country-wide anti-government protests over the past week.
Several videos circulated on local news and social media on Wednesday showing soldiers stationed at various demonstrations overcome with emotion after touching interactions with protesters.
Soldiers in Lebanon are typically low paid and act more as a national guard than a coercive force used to repress popular movements, a stark contrast to Lebanon's neighbors.
