UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon Jan Kubis released a statement marking the first anniversary of the October 17 uprising in Lebanon.

A year ago, a massive wave of national protests started, that at some point brought to the streets hundreds of thousands, even millions of Lebanese across the whole country, across all sectarian and political divides and affiliations, with women and young people at the center, the statement said.
