A local non-governmental association [in Lebanon] voiced sharp criticism Friday to a $200 million touristic project being planned for Tripoli seafront.

“The seafront should be conserved particularly given the presence of nearby natural sanctuaries and island reserves,” a statement by the Tripoli Developmental Association said.

Local media said recently an offshore zone of around 1 million square meters will be reclaimed for the construction of residential and commercial buildings as well as touristic attractions.
