Emall launch by Bank Audi 3D Mapping

That’s a pretty cool 3D mapping show. E-Mall is set to launch in 4 days. It’s good to see more initiatives encouraging e-commerce in Lebanon. I hope merchants will have some cool offers and cheaper prices online.

EMall, a unified e-commerce platform addressing Lebanese merchants, aims at promoting the Lebanese economy and at being a marketplace that unites retailers, SMEs and independent merchants with cardholders in Lebanon and around the world, who will now be able to execute sale and purchase operations online through this interactive site.

Jounieh car-free day

Posted By :


All the coastal roads in Jounieh were closed on Sunday for the Jounieh on bike “Green Day”. It’s good to see that the event attracted a lot of people and I hope it will become a monthly event not just take place during the festivals. The same goes to the car-free days being organized in Achrafieh.

Lieutenant George Elien bou Saab

Two army officers, a sergeant and three soldiers were martyred in the Abra clashes that took place today with Ahmad Al-Assir supporters. Here are the names as officially released by the Lebanese Army:

- Captain Ali Adnan al-Masri
- First Lieutenant Samer Geryes Tanios
- Lieutenant George Elien bou Saab
- First Class Private Rami Ali Khabbaz
- Private Bilal Ali Saleh
- Private Elie Nicolas Rahme

I was able to find online the pictures of Lieutenant George Elien bou Saab and First Lieutenant Samer Geryes Tanios. If you have the pictures of the other army men mentioned, please do share them.

Speaking of the events that took place today and have been occurring lately, I hope that the army and its commander remain determined to confront all outlaws without any exception and without listening to anyone. As far as the rest of us are concerned, the only thing we should be doing is show our unconditional support to the Lebanese Army in ways that don’t involve closing down roads or using weapons of any kind.

Sincere condolences to the families of these brave young men.

First Lieutenant Samer Geryes Tanios
