Fahmi’s remarks come at the height of an economic crisis that is unprecedented in Lebanon’s history.
In addition to impacting their lives as Lebanese, the crisis has placed additional pressure on security forces due to the social unrest that accompanies shortages in essential commodities such as fuel and medicine.
In this context, Fahmi underlined the heavy impact of what he referred to as “the siege imposed on the Lebanese by the monopolists of fuel and medicine.”
He affirmed that security forces would continue to raid warehouses used for stockpiling monopolized materials, regardless of their owners’ political affiliations.
