BEIRUT: Bus drivers held a brief protest Saturday near the old Airport road in Beirut, asking the government to take immediate action against what they described as “illegal competition.”

Around 50 drivers who gathered at 9 a.m. argued that foreign drivers, particularly Syrians, were illegally working in the country and using vehicles without Lebanese license plates.

They asked the concerned ministries to end what they described as "illegal competition eating away at their livelihood."
