Issa Yahya wrote in “Nidaa Al-Watan”: The crisis of fuel shortages, electricity cuts and the rise in the generator bills imposed on the citizens’ diaries until it became their main concern, and they started looking for alternatives in light of the talk about harsh rationing that will be imposed by the Electricité du Liban as a result of not emptying the fuel, and meeting generator owners It has rationing and raising the monthly subscription price.

The people of Bekaa are preparing for a complete collapse, which has become almost settled, after the negotiations to form the government faltered and some parties were intransigent in holding on to quotas and gains, and the citizen pays the price from his empty pocket and from his deposits, which he aspires to receive a monthly payment from in dollars, which is an acquired right. As the repercussions of the collapse appear more and more, and fuels disappear with it, and the prices of consumer goods rise at rates that exceed the exchange rate of the dollar on the black market, the people of the Bekaa began preparing for the big impact with greater momentum than last year, when they prepared winter supplies, planting vegetables in their fields and gardens, where agriculture was active. Remarkably. The Bekaa, especially the villagers, planted varieties that could be used in the winter, such as potatoes, onions and tomatoes, each according to the area of ​​his land and his self-sufficiency, after these crops were the preserve of the owners of large projects and large farmers who control prices and keep pace with the crazy rise in them parallel to the dollar exchange rate.
