BEIRUT: The Internal Security Forces released a statement Monday announcing that major streets in Beirut would be closed during the parliamentary session Tuesday.

Due to the consecutive sessions, access to Downtown Beirut will be almost entirely restricted to those with special permission.

Banks Street will be closed from 7 a.m. until the end of the session, as will the area from Zoukak al-Blat Mosque to Riad al-Solh and the Markaziah Building.
