The Lebanese massed in a vast human chain stretching hundreds of kilometers along the Mediterranean coast on Sunday, for peace and unity in the country.

Around 200,000 Lebanese people linked “hand in hand united for Lebanon."

People joined hands from Lebanon's northern city of Tripoli to the southern city of Tyre, passing through Beirut's Rouche.

Tourism Minister Michel Pharaon joined the Lebanese, stressing that the state should believe in the civil society despite the ongoing paralysis at state institutions.

The event was held under the patronage of Pharaon and in cooperation with the Lebanese Army, the Municipality of Beirut, the Ministry of Interior, the Foreign Ministry, the Lebanese Red Cross and the Civil Defense.
