Grain stores in the Lebanese port of Beirut have been seriously damaged and will be demolished
According to local media, on the 5th, Raoul Nehme, Minister of Economy and Trade of the Lebanese Caretaker Government, stated that in order to avoid threatening public safety, the government decided to demolish the granary located in Beirut Port. On August 4 this year, a big explosion occurred in the port of Beirut. The granary was severely damaged and threatened to collapse.
According to reports, the granary was built in 1960 and is the only large-scale granary in the country with a storage capacity of more than 100,000 tons, capable of hoarding approximately 85% of the country’s reserves.
