On Monday, Lebanon's government, led by PM Hassan Diab, submitted resignation in the wake of the deadly explosion that caused a large-scale public rage against the country’s regime, with protesters and police fighting running battles in the capital for a third day.

Over the last two days, four ministers and nine MPs have also submitted their resignation due to the deadly blast that claimed the lives of more than 200 people and injured thousands, while dozens are still missing.

The cabinet decision to resign was due to large protests that erupted on August 8 in the Lebanese capital, as the demonstrators expressed their frustration with the ongoing economic crisis that has only worsened with time, and with the deadly explosion caused by 2,750 tons of improperly stored ammonium nitrate.
