The story of AlDaliah, which is the area separating Al roche and Alramle Albayda, goes way back to the year of 1995, when the deceased prime minister Rafik Al Hariri started to buy all the properties in the area from their fishermen owners through private realestate companies.
Years after that this issue had floated to the surface again when the heirs of Rafik Al Hariri demanded to close the case and kick out the inhabitants of the area that they own, and the government has to build ports to contain the boats of the fishermen.
However, working on this project stopped when the heirs of Rafik Al Hariri didn’t agree on expanding the fishermen’s port because it’ll be taking over their personal property according to the declaration of the former minister of public work and transportation Ghazi Al Aridi.
This case lies between the hands of the Lebanese justice system which has not made a decision till this day, with the fishermen threatening to make their protest more violent in case they were forced out of their houses.
