Truck owners are organizing a sit-in at Beirut's port as of Thursday, July 18, to denounce recent austerity measures included in the 2019 fiscal budget, causing disruptions to the port's commercial activities.
Further disruptions are expected until the sit-in is called off. Associated protests are possible in Beirut over the coming days.
Individuals in Beirut are advised to monitor developments to the situation, anticipate disruptions to port operations, and to avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution.
