The Council of Beirut’s Municipality announced on Thursday that it would name a street after the Prime Minister Saad Hariri. Streets in Beirut are named after countries, notable people, and politicians. Hariri has received a lot of support from the Lebanese people ever since he announced his resignation. Naming a street after him might be another sign of support.
