Lebanon Daylight Savings Time (DST)
It starts on the last Sunday in March and ends on the last Sunday in October. In March the clock is moved forward from 00.00 am to 01.00 am (so you will lose an hour of sleep during the night). While in October it’s reversed as the clock is moved backward from 00.00 am to 23.00 am and you will gain an extra hour of sleep. One way of remembering the movement sequence is that clocks “spring forward and fall back”.
