A toned down Ramadan

Al-Akhbar is currently going through a transitional phase whereby the English website is available for Archival purposes only. All new content will be published in Arabic on the main website (www.al-akhbar.com).

Al-Akhbar Management

Ramadan does not feel as festive this year compared to years past. People have not prepared for the holy month like they usually do. The atmosphere of Ramadan is being drowned out by the tense security situation in Lebanon and the current regional events. There are even people who do not have the means to put food on the table after 16 hours of fasting.

Nevertheless, there are some signs that leave us optimistic. The usual colorful decorations have been put up everywhere and food is being set aside for the poor. Shop owners did not forget to take advantage of this season to advertise their products everywhere for Eid al-Fitr. Hopefully the Lebanese will reach Eid al-Fitr without having to worry about any more security problems.
