A controversial dam project could spark a major seismic event in Lebanon, Asia Times news website quoted experts as warning. The under-construction Bisri Dam sits on two of the Middle East's largest fault lines: Roum and Bisri.
Head of the Kataeb's Economic and Social Council Jean Tawile on Wednesday blamed the Free Patriotic Movement and the other political forces that are part of the ruling authority comrades for the current crisis that Lebanon is facing, adding that they have failed to manage social and economic issues.
It would come as a surprise if the Lebanese authorities were able to design and agree on sustainable economic reforms. Buying time has been their only objective for many years now, knowing that the endemic exploitation of public resources by the political elite has continued to fuel the clientelist nature of Lebanese politics.
