Head of the Internal Security Forces department Colonel Joseph Moussalem told LBCI news on Monday that 7000 fines were given so far for breaches of the coronavirus lockdown.
Moussalem’s statement was made during an interview with LBCI’s ‘Nharkom Saiid’ TV show whereby he noted that that the security forces are implementing the lockdown measures firmly, specifically in terms of fining residents who go against the imposed curfew.
Moussalem stressed that there should be a great commitment from Lebanese citizens to implement the safety measures and respect the lockdown, which started on Saturday as the second full lockdown since the virus was first detected in February.
