The Lebanese Minister of Interior added, “We will ask the government to take everything necessary to control the security situation in the areas of Chiyah and Ain al-Remmaneh, noting that the Mikati government is for rescue and work, and is not the one who is sabotaging the situation in the country.”

Today, the vicinity of the Palace of Justice in Beirut witnessed demonstrations by a number of citizens protesting the politicization of the Beirut Port issue, which necessitated a heavy security deployment of the army inside the precincts of the Palace of Justice.
The investigations into the Beirut port explosion witnessed a halt for the third time. For its part, the Lebanese Council of Ministers decided to continue researching the circumstances surrounding the forensic investigation into the Beirut port explosion crime.
