Why didn’t all regions engage in today’s protests?

While the flames of street tires washed the sky, the President of the Republic, Michel Aoun, was on a jet bound for Qatar to attend the Arab Cup opening ceremony.

The dollar has hit LBP 25,000, the government is in a stupor, and the institutions are inoperable; the Lebanese have paid for the thousandth time, attempting to shut highways and protesting their squalor!

For a few hours, revolutionaries closed several routes from Beirut to the Bekaa, Akkar, and Tripoli, and then they reopened all roads, declaring Wednesday to be another day of wrath.

The same scene has been repeated for a while, with tires igniting and roads being cut, but this time, despite the dire circumstances, not all neighborhoods joined in the sit-ins, with just Sunni Street being set on fire.

Black Friday, the day of amazing price reduction, is celebrated in the United States!

While Lebanon celebrates “Black Day” on a regular basis owing to the high price of the dollar and insane costs.
The darkness in Lebanon knows no end date, and it will last as long as this power exists.
