Army Veterans to Block Roads as Part of Anti-Budget Protests

Retired army officers announced on Tuesday that they will launch a new round of escalatory actions this week, warning of more "painful" moves should the government fail to meet their demands. The army veterans said that they will block main roads leading to Beirut on Thursday from 5:00 AM until 10:00 AM, in what is to be considered as as a warning message that will be followed by harsher actions if no change happens.
