Sali Hafiz is not a thief, but she had to rob a bank on Wednesday, and she did it successfully, hauling out bagfuls of dollars.
No life lost.
Her story hit Twitter and other social media platforms, making a hero of sort in Beirut, Lebanon..
She even streamed the roll herself, thereby grabbing the opportunity to explain why a good girl turned a badass, and pulling off a heist in which the only thing lost was broken glass. She and her accomplice had to get out of Blom Bank they raided.
Hafiz said her sister is sick, down with cancer, and needs treatment.
“I did not come to kill anyone or to start a fire… I came to claim my rights.”
In a later interview with a Lebanese broadcaster after the raid, Hafiz said she got $13,000 of the $20,000 her family had deposited. But the sick sister needs $50,000.
And she claimed, too , she was armed with a toy gun she got from her nephew.
She’s on the run now, and her family has distanced themselves from her robbery.
Blom Bank, the National Daily gathered from reports, has witnessed incidents of depositors storming its branches to forcibly withdraw their trapped savings since the Lebanese ran their economy aground years back.
