Beirut Postponed

 Articleimages Lebanon Protests Beirut Web

I was scheduled to be in Lebanon this week and then on to Egypt. The travel has been postponed.

With all the turmoil and unrest in the region as a result of the assassination of Pierre Gemayel, the purpose of going was defeated. The ability to travel, move around the city, meet with people, etc., is next to impossible. Our folks living and serving in the region wrote:

“After several contacts yesterday and today with many people who are very well connected with the different factions in the country at the highest levels, we were informed that the upcoming week is very critical and it is most likely that Beirut airport would be closed due to the planned demonstrations and actions. Once things start it is not clear when and how it will end. The situation is very critical and outcomes could go any direction.”
