Some major highways in Lebanon reopened on Wednesday, after the army urged protesters to lift roadblocks so that activities could return to normal following 13 days of demonstrations that paralyzed the country.

Relatively, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri announced his resignation on Tuesday’s, saying he had hit a “dead end” in trying to resolve the crisis unleashed by the huge protests against the ruling elite.

The Ring Bridge in the center of the capital opened after negotiations with some protesters who did not want to leave, saying they wanted more of the authorities to resign. Many protesters stayed on, but did not block the whole road.

In a statement, the army command said people had a right to protest, but that applied “in public squares only”.

The main protest camp in a square in the center of the capital was quiet but was closed to traffic by security forces.
