Faraya is a pretty small village with a population of only 1,900. Despite that, it’s a major ski destination – not only for Lebanese but for people in the Middle East. https://www.instagram.com/p/BL_ZOiVAcEs
The name “Faraya” is Phoenician for “The land of fruits and vegetables” due to its fertile land.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
