Apple farmers held protests in several Lebanese regions on Saturday demanding a government action to help them sell their products inside Lebanon and to foreign markets.
Apple farmers in the Chouf district of Barouk blocked the road in a move that will be echoed in several other Lebanese regions on Saturday.
In the town of Tarshish in the district of Baabda the farmers chose another way for their protests as they distributed apples to passersby.
Early this week, the farmers in the city of Jbeil, north of Beirut, kicked off similar sit-ins.
The farmers blocked the Jbeil highway leading to Beirut, and threw their apples on the road blocking the traffic for a couple of hours.
