Former Lebanese deputy reportedly destroying Bcharreh’s ancient Cedar Forest

Former Lebanese deputy Gebran Tawk is reportedly destroying Bcharreh’s ancient Cedar Forest in a bid to lay ground for an outdoor venue that is to become the scene of his son’s wedding.      

Bulldozers began settling the ground and transporting rocks and gravel in preparation for the ceremony which will last for 3 days, and which will be attended by nearly three thousand people.                

It is worth noting that the ancient forest is listed on the World Heritage List of UNESCO; a list that requires the protection of classified sites and their surroundings within an area exceeding 500 square meters; however, the preparation activities carried out in the vicinity may obliterate the existence of the forest.
