While Irani may not have had insurance, it's unclear whether those who do have insurance packages are better off, especially as the political and economic atmosphere grows increasingly uncertain.In conversations with major insurance companies in Lebanon, it appears that many are beginning to remove coverage for damage occurred in protests or riot situations. The minority who continue to offer their clients these protections have, however, raised the premium for this insurance significantly.Farah has also reported the damage to the Higher Relief Council but, like Irani, she hasn't heard back.As business owners and residents alike start seeing increased damage arising from the protests, more people have been asking their insurance companies for protection. However, like Libano Suisse and Fidelity, they have said that they will not be offering clients the option to add or buy riot insurance while riots are happening.Allianz SNA, another major insurance company, has also ceased providing coverage.
