Lebanon: Ain Dara plant project attacked by gunmen
14 March 2017

Gunmen opened gunfire at a cement factory in the Mount Lebanon town of Ain Dara after the town's residents refused the establishment of factories in the area over health issues, the National News Agency reported on Monday.

NNA said the assailants, who were not identified, opened gunfire at an under construction cement factory that belongs to the Fattouch family in Ain Dara in the outskirts of Dahr al-Baydar.

Pierre Fattoush, a brother of MP Nicolas Fattoush, wants to establish a huge project and cement factory in the outskirts of Ain Dara that lies in the geographic scope of the Shouf Biosphere Reserve.
Residents of Ain Dara in addition to its municipal council have organised environmental, social and political campaigns to counter this step.
