Lebanese held a protest Saturday to refuse mandatory COVID-19 vaccine pass, in the center of Lebanon's capital Beirut.

"This is a peaceful protest to voice our refusal of discrimination and the violation of personal freedom, which are protected by the constitution, Human Rights and applicable laws," a resident told AFP.

Another resident said "The truth is that we are against this law, which they enforced on people as it affects personal freedom and a person's liberty in preserving their body."

"Everyone has the right to choose the thing that suits them. I support the freedom of opinion. If some people find the vaccine suitable then they can choose it but if not then they don't," an individual said.

Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Lebanon has confirmed 761,853 cases and 9,250 deaths.
