#AceNewsServices – LEBANON – Families of the Lebanese soldiers and security officers kidnapped by Takfiri terrorists in Syria have blocked roads in Lebanon, urging the government to do more to release their loved ones.
Relatives of captive Lebanese soldier, Ibrahim Mogheit, cut off the highway in Qalamoun, north Lebanon, on October 6, 2014.
On Monday, protesters erected high sand mounds across Dahr al-Baidar highway in the capital, Beirut, blocking all access, including a narrow passageway that had been kept open for ambulances and emergency cases.
Security sources said the road blockage was meant to express the families’ growing frustration with regard to what happened to their loved ones.
In northern Lebanon, relatives of captive soldier, Ibrahim Mogheit, also cut off a highway in Qalamoun region, severing access to the city of Tripoli.
Traffic had to be redirected to a narrow road, causing long trails of stranded cars.
