Retired Lebanese soldiers are holding a protest at Martyr's Square in Beirut as of Friday, July 19, to denounce recent austerity measures included in the 2019 fiscal budget. Protesters are likely to head to the Parliament building.

Heightened security measures and localized transportation disruptions are expected in the vicinity of all protest sites. Clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out.


Retired Lebanese veterans who oppose the government's austerity budget have staged similar protests in recent weeks, occasionally leading to tensions with security forces.


Individuals in Lebanon, particularly in Beirut, are advised to monitor for developments of the situation and to avoid all protests.
