As chaos unfolds across the country over the gasoline crisis, a group of protesters just stopped an Apec tanker loaded with gasoline on the Muhammarah-Abdah highway in Akkar, North Lebanon.
The protesters were blocking the roads in the region and saw the opportunity to take hold of the tanker.
Some of them climbed the truck to fill gallons with gasoline, currently a precious commodity in Lebanon due to its shortage, and distributed them directly among those present.
The shortage of gasoline all across Lebanon has been forcing people to wait in hours-long queues to fuel their vehicles as those in charge have been incapable to solve the crisis, among the other crises rampaging the country.
