Complete paralysis of roads for the seventh day consecutively due to the ongoing protests because of deteriorating living conditions.

A number of protesters cut off the Kfar Hazir highway towards Chekka with earth mounds completely and the international road from Marjayoun to Bekaa in Hasbaya in the western Bekaa.,

Early in the morning, protesters set up another roadblock on the road and put earth mounds and stones in the middle, while allowing people to cross for humanitarian reasons only.

The traffic control chamber reported that the Jiyeh and Saadiyat highways were cut off in both directions, pointing out that a number of roads have been cut off within the area of Jounieh, Metn al-shmali  east of Beirut and in Akkar in north Lebanon in addition to Sidon south, Tripoli north and Zahla in the Bekaa.

In the meantime, the Lebanese army reopened the road at the entrance of the city of Tire, while many verbal clashes took place between passers-by and protesters in a number of Lebanese areas, especially the coastal road leading to northern Lebanon.
