Lebanon is one of the oldest countries in the world and has over 7,000 years of history. It is home to one of the world’s most ancient civilizations, Phoenicia. Lebanon hides beneath its ground an ancient world that still needs to get discovered.
There are also 5 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Lebanon: Umayyad ruins, Temple of Bacchus, Byblos, Qadisha Valley and the Forest of the Cedars of God, and Tyre. Here are the ruins that you can find in the Bekaa Valley!
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.
