The news comes amid the anticipation of EU sanctions against Lebanese politicians involved in the political deadlock that Lebanon has been going through since its last government resigned in August 2020.

Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources.
