Violence and queues in front of bakeries have become more common in Northern Lebanon, including with Syrian refugees who are being blamed for the bread crisis.

Recently, the ISF uncovered a warehouse in Tripoli with a huge amount of subsidized flour.

Lebanon has been facing a bread supply problem since the start of the crisis, with frequent shortages and rising prices.
