After the huge reach and media attention, that the Top Worst Passports blog post got, the central office for the Lebanese General Security issued a formal statement, saying that the Lebanese passport is among the best in the world.
LebanonDebate posted the statement on their website. The General Security source, pointed out that the study did not mention a “worse” or “better” criteria for countries; and that the news is harmful to the civilized face of Lebanon.
The source also added that Lebanon is soon moving to rely on a sophisticated biometric passport provides a lot of additional services to its bearer and simulates the best internationally recognized passports.

It is not the first time I see someone on the timeline complaining about the telecom sector in Lebanon. We’ve seen all type of complaints and wrote some as well, from the high priced packages, to the below average coverage and the extreme high rate of phone call drop-offs, you name it, we have complained about it. However this is the first time I see a promoted tweet from an unsatisfied customer of Touch Lebanon.

Maharat-News team put together a visual showing the different coverage of this massacre on all the Lebanese TV stations.
