A citizen in Lebanon attempted to set himself on fire after security forces tried to close his shop for violating lockdown measures, the National News Agency reported.
40-year-old barber “M.N.” doused himself with gasoline and tried to set fire to himself as an Internal Security Forces (ISF) patrol attempted to fine him and close down his barbershop for working during the ongoing lockdown.
The said patrol had reached the barber after another citizen informed the ISF about his violation of the closure.
