Lebanese caretaker Economy Minister Raoul Nehme’s car has been vandalized amid increased civil unrest in Lebanon.
A group of unidentified individuals used canned spray to vandalize the official’s car, spraying the words “Revolution” and “Thieves” all over it.
Concurrently, the entrance to Nehme’s house was vandalized in the same manner, with similar slogans sprayed on its walls.
As of the time of writing, Nehme has not commented on the incident.
This comes during a period of increased volatility in Lebanon’s internal security, facilitated by the massive decline in overall living standards.
The apparent lack of efficient policy to combat the deteriorating situation in Lebanon on its officials’ part is fueling anger amongst the Lebanese population.
Lebanon is already suffering shortages in fuel, medicine, and other essentials. Recently, concerns have been growing about a potential shortage of flour.
In light of that, caretaker Minister Nehme reassured people on Friday that Lebanon has “a sufficient reserve of flour,” adding that the price of bread is linked to fluctuations in the international prices of its ingredients.
