Member of the "Loyalty to Resistance" Parliamentary bloc, MP Ibrahim Moussawi, appealed Sunday to state security and military forces to "carry out their responsibilities in maintaining security in the Bekaa region, especially in the Baalbek-Hermel province," urging them to "arrest those who breach security and bring them to justice because the region and its people are exhausted."


In an issued statement earlier today, Moussawi referred to "the great suffering experienced by farmers and the agricultural sector," calling upon state departments, particularly the Lebanese Customs, "to activate their presence in preventing smuggling that harms farmers' seasonal produce, especially potato farmers who suffer severely from illegal competition, leading to recession and threatening their livelihood." 

In this context, Moussawi contacted Customs Supreme Council Head, Brigadier General Asaad al-Tufaili, who promised to follow up on the matter.
