Subsidized essentials, like wheat, sugar, and even fuel, are being transported across the borders while the citizens in Lebanon have reached a level of despair.
They can’t afford to buy meat or even bread to feed their families, and the country is running out of more and more basic materials by the day.
The mere thought that food is being removed from the mouths of the struggling Lebanese, as we say in Lebanon, to be given to a foreign country is intolerable.
As for the act itself, which has been a reiterated and even regular normality, is bluntly criminal towards the Lebanese people, and highly crippling to the country’s already decaying economy.
It is no secret that this has been happening openly while the government is desperately seeking financial support and the international community is questioning the good governance of the country’s affairs.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
