syrian refugees crisis
Kataeb MP Elie Marouni on Thursday expressed his confidence in the Constitutional Council as it is making its decision regarding the taxes law, saying that it wouldn't have frozen the levies hadn't they been marred with flaws. "We trust the Constitutional Council and respect its decision no matter what it will be," he stressed.
President Michel Aoun expected regional conflicts to end soon, saying that this would project positively on Lebanon.
While seasonal bottlenecks are common in the world, Lebanon suffers from a chronic traffic problem that dates back to the 1990s, when the 15-Year Lebanese Civil War finally ended. Since then, the situation has been aggravated by the deteriorating condition of the road network, the absence of a reliable public transportation system, and recently the influx of more than a million officially registered Syrian refugees escaping the war in their home country.
