No bread loaves in the North, as from Wednesday

Owners of the bakeries in the north, announced today that they will stop producing bread loaf, as of tomorrow, Wednesday, until diesel is secured to their bakeries.

On the other hand, the fuel crisis and the cessation of delivering it to gas stations and bakeries imposed new security challenges, represented in citizens seizing fuel transport tanks, amid military and security deployments near gas stations to prevent friction between people, and cordon off problems and prevent their aggravation, according to what security sources told Alsharq Al-Awsat

In light of the Governor of Banque du Liban’s decision to lift fuel subsidies, the political authority is seeking to besiege the crisis, and the Lebanese presidency said that President Michel Aoun is studying options, including calling upon the Council of Ministers to convene exceptionally, in agreement with the Prime Minister, in order to address this crisis.
