Thread - $ in #lebanon today hit roof (in some areas reported 7,000 lira to the dollar up from 1,500). Road blocks and protests are back. CB issues orders to stick to 3850 with no clear mechanism on how to control that. Meanwhile in #syria, lira recovered some! #swing https://t.co/KxzoVvw4Bs— Sarah El Deeb (@seldeeb) June 11, 2020
