Palestinian refugees yesterday resumed their protests against the Lebanese labour minister’s decision to subject them to the same work restrictions as foreigners, Al Khaleej Online reported.
The Palestinian refugees took to the streets in refugee camps across Lebanon, marking the start of their second month of protests.
During the protests, the Palestinian refugees burned tyres and carried out a general strike in a number of the refugee camps.
In El-Buss refugee camp, in the south of Lebanon, Palestinians closed the entrances of the camp and called for the Lebanese minister to cancel his decision.
The Lebanese labour minister stipulated that Palestinian refugees would be required to obtain special work permits to work in the country, in the same way as foreigners living in Lebanon.
