Protesters set fire to Banque du Liban

A group of protesters set fire to one of the offices of the Banque du Liban in Hamra, after they gathered in front of it.
The protesters had gathered in front of the branch, chanting slogans against the ruling class and the financial and banking policies, according to what was reported by the “Al-Nashra” website.

Dozens of Lebanese gathered, on Wednesday evening, in front of the Banque du Liban in Beirut, against what they called “the system of looting and impoverishment”, denouncing the deterioration of the Lebanese pound against the dollar.
The demonstrators were also supposed to march from the bank to the cabinet and then to the parliament building, but a limited confrontation erupted after a number of demonstrators tried to climb the bank’s wall and storm it through the back door and set it on fire.

Similar to Beirut, a number of protesters blocked roads in the city of Tripoli with burning tires and in front of the Banque du Liban in protest against the difficult living conditions.
