Lebanon private sector group calls for nationwide strikes: statement

BEIRUT (Reuters) - A Lebanese business grouping that covers much of the country’s private sector called on Monday for a general strike, according to a statement from the group, amid protests and worsening economic conditions.

“The economic bodies have decided unanimously to call for the implementation of a general strike to close all private institutions in the country on Thursday, Friday and Saturday,” the statement said.
