In Lebanon, account holders attacked 5 banks to withdraw their own deposits.

According to the news agency, these incidents took place on Friday where some armed account holders attacked the banks.

The government of Lebanon has issued instructions to the police to arrest and investigate the suspects.

Earlier, last week too, 7 attacks were made on banks to withdraw money. Banks have now announced to close banks across Lebanon for three days from Monday in protest.

It should be noted that the economic crisis has been ongoing in Lebanon since 2019, seeing the growth in the value of the Lebanese currency, the government had imposed a ban on withdrawing huge amounts from banks.
