Others queue up citizens with their cars in front of them to get their needs from what they have from stock.

The protesters declared that “the citizen cannot buy his daily needs of medicine and milk and suffers from humiliation in front of gas stations in light of the lack of purchasing power,” and chanted slogans calling for “the departure of the authority.”
It is noteworthy that Lebanon is witnessing a severe economic and financial crisis, which led to an increase in the exchange rate of the dollar to reach 17,700 Lebanese pounds.
