On Friday morning, eastern Lebanon and the capital, Beirut, witnessed protests against the deteriorating living conditions and demanded the provision of medicines and infant formula.

A number of protesters blocked the Masnaa-Rashaya road in eastern Lebanon and the Corniche Al-Mazraa road in the capital, Beirut, with containers of waste and stones, and demanded the provision of infant formula and medicines.

It is noteworthy that Lebanon is witnessing a severe economic and financial crisis that led to an increase in the exchange rate of the dollar, as it touched the threshold of 14,800 Lebanese pounds and a decline in the purchasing power of citizens, in addition to a decline in the ability of the Bank of Lebanon to meet the government’s decision to support medicines and basic materials listed on the support regulations, which led to a decrease in the stock of medicines And infant formula in pharmacies, the loss of some of it, the decline in the stock of medical supplies in hospitals, and the unavailability of subsidized foodstuffs.
