A group of people on Thursday hijacked a truck loaded with milk in northern Lebanon.
As the truck was passing through the road that connects Halba to Deir Daloum in the Akkar Governorate, the crowd forced it to stop and emptied it of the milk it was transporting, according to the National News Agency.
They then proceeded to distribute the milk to passersby. The incident resulted in a traffic jam in the area.
As the economic crisis in Lebanon progresses, chaos is taking over the streets, with armed confrontations between civilians becoming more frequent and long car queues extending from gas stations becoming the new norm.
In addition to draining the country and its gas stations of fuel, the crisis has caused sporadic shortages of various commodities and essential goods, such as baby milk.
