NNA - Progressive Socialist Party Chief, Walid Jumblatt, appologized, via his Twitter account, to the Lebanese for violating lockdown rules put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19.

"Today I violated the lockdown orders. I went from Mukhtara to Beirut, where I felt very embarrassed when I saw a security forces' checkpoint in Khalde area, who were very polite," Jumblatt said.

"I apologize for this behavior in these difficult times, where national mobilization must be respected to contain the epidemic and the security forces are doing their best in this regard," he added.
