Lebanese Minister of Information: “No plans to reopen the airport currently”

Lebanese Minister of Information Manal Abdel Samad made several public announcements today tackling different topics.

Mainly, the minister stated that there are no plans to reopen the airport currently.

This is a bit odd considering Air France had announced that they will be resuming flights to Lebanon starting June 12.

Minister Abdel Samad also announced that the Cabinet had approved extending the general mobilization period till June 7, as per the Higher Defense Council’s recommendation, and confirmed what PM Hassan Diab had announced earlier today in regards to BDL’s intervention to protect the national currency.
