تظاهرات سراسری ضد دولتی در لبنان و حضور آرتش در خیابان ها – جمعه June 12 (کلیپ های کوتاه)

تظاهرات ضد دولتی در لبنان که به دنبال همه گیری کرونا متوقف شده بود از چند شب پیش از سر گرفته شد و روز جمعه به سراسر این کشور گسترش پیدا کرده. نیروهای سرکوب و آرتش در خیابان ها حضور دارند و تعداد ۱۱ زخمی تاکنون گزارش شده. سری جدید تظاهرات ریشه اقتصادی دارد و به دنبال حیف و میل, اختلاس و مدیریت اقتصادی غلط دولت که عمدتا از عناصر نزدیک به حزب الله لبنان تشکیل شده آغاز گشته. تظاهر کنندگان خواستار استعفای دولت سعد حریری هستند. گفتنی است حسن نصر الله با استعفای دولت علنا مخالفت کرده. طی 8 ماه گذشته نرخ برابری پول لبنان در مقابل ارزهای خارجی %70 کاهش داشته. دولت لبنان از IMF تقاضای وام کرده که هنوز جوابی دریافت نکرده. گفته میشود خرابی ها و ناآرامی های چند شب گذشته در این کشور, که زمانی نه چندان دور عروس خاور میانه خوانده میشد, از هنگام جنگ داخلی لبنان بی سابقه بوده.

Protesters in Lebanon block roads and march on the streets as the country faces a collapse in its currency.
Protesters in Lebanon have tried to occupy the Central Bank as the nation’s currency dropped to new lows against the dollar. The government has been in talks with the International Monetary Fund for weeks, but there are no signs of an imminent deal on a rescue package.
Lebanese protesters burned tires and cut roadways across Beirut and other cities on Thursday in renewed demonstrations sparked by a rapid fall in the pound currency and mounting economic hardship. The pound slid to about 5,000 to the U.S. dollar on Thursday and has lost some 70 per cent of its value since October, when Lebanon descended into a financial crisis seen as the biggest threat to stability since the 1975-90 civil war. From the northern city of Tripoli to the southern city of Sidon and the capital Beirut, Lebanese chanted against the political elite and set fire to major roadways across the country in the most widespread unrest since a lockdown imposed in mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Prime Minister Hassan Diab called for an emergency cabinet meeting to be held on Friday to discuss the monetary situation, a statement from his office said.
Anti-government protests turned violent as clashes erupted between police and protestors. Protestors hit the streets in capital Beirut.
