A general view of a petrol station on the main highway that link the Capital Beirut to south Lebanon as a man holds a gallon of fuel, right, while cars come from every direction to try and fill their tanks with gasoline, in the coastal town of Jiyeh, south of Beirut, Lebanon, Friday, September 3, 2021.
