More than three million Lebanese – almost half the population – are facing a tough Ramadan.
The monthly cost of iftar, or the meal to break their fast, now costs 2.5 times the minimum wage.
The World Bank says food prices there have become the highest in the region.
Al Jazeera’s Zeina Khodr has more from Beirut, Lebanon.

Let the Oil rich Gulf countries help Lebanon, oh no…. they rather throw bombs than help their Arab neighbours like they do everywhere in the Middle East.

Hezbollah control the Finance Ministry and refuse to move.
That is the root of the problem.
Of course Iran support Hezbollah (the Axis of Evil)
and the people have to suffer in silence, or face a violent backlash from
Hezbollah's 10,000 man armed Lebanese militia.

Same is the case in Pakistan. The US backed hybrid regime of Imran Khan has destabilized the Pakistani economy and fueled the inflation in the country.

Would be better if they become part of Saudi Arabia or join Syria again. Lebanon is reliant on those countries anyways.
