Hezbollah leader calls on supporters to refrain from celebratory gunfire when he speaks (Associated Press, Feb. 15, 2015)

It is common in Lebanon for supporters of political groups to celebrate by firing guns into the air whenever their leaders give speeches. Supporters of Hezbollah's rival, Saad Hariri, unleashed a round of celebratory gunfire after Hariri started to speak on Saturday.

In his statement Sunday, Nasrallah called on supporters "to refrain categorically from shooting and for everyone to cooperate to keep that from happening and for officials to exert double efforts to keep this from happening."
