Happening Now In Tripoli: Protest Against Poor Living Conditions

In light of the coronavirus pandemic and the current economic crisis in the country, Tripoli citizens have taken to the streets in protest of the terrible living conditions.

Some protestors were heard chanting “to die of corona is better than dying of hunger”.

The Lebanese army is currently trying to disperse the gathering, for fears of easy coronavirus transmission in big crowds.

Amid the current lockdown, many families were left with no source of income, making it a double-edged sword in a country with an already deteriorating economy.

Despite the Lebanese Cabinet’s decision to financially support vulnerable families with 400,000 LL, the aid is yet to be distributed.
