Citizens cutoff roads leading to the town of Kfarmatta in protest against Bassil's visit

A number of roads leading to the town Kfarmatta in the district of Aley have been cut-off this afternoon with burning tires by several youth members in protest against the visit of Free Patriotic Movement Chief, Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil, to the town to meet with Druze Sheikh Nassereddine al-Gharib at his residence in the aforementioned town, which led to the intervention of the Lebanese army and friction between its soldiers and a number of protesters.
