ISF retirees stage a sit-in after hospitals refused to receive them

The Association of Internal Security Forces (ISF) retirees staged a sit-in in front of the medical centers contracting with ISF across all Lebanese territories, protesting the hospital’s refusal to receive retired security forces patients with their families.
