Thousands Of Dead Fish Wash Up To Shore In Beirut (Video)

It’s a bewildering sight from the shore of Saint Simon beach in the suburb of Jnah in Beirut. Thousands of dead fish fill the sandy shoreline and lifelessly sway with the crashing waves.

Locals are alarmed by the sight, calling it an environmental disaster and urge the Ministry of Agriculture to take action to protect the livelihoods of fishermen and fisheries in Lebanon.

As for the reason why they washed ashore, that’s still uncertain. Could the water be toxic? Could they have washed ashore in the aftermath of the blast… two months later?

Expensive meat, rotten chicken, and now dead wasted fish… The people of Lebanon don’t seem to get a break.
