Here’s a rare video shared by Old Beirut of Martyrs Square and its surrounding back in 1995. Saifi village, Al Amin Mosque, Virgin Megastore and several other buildings weren’t built yet. I think the only two major buildings that remain untouched till today are Burj el Murr and the bullet-scarred Holiday Inn Hotel.
PS: I’m gonna try dig out old Beirut pictures from 1995 and compare them with recent pictures.
I wish it stayed like it was and we didn’t have billions of dollars in debt! Who does actually go there and how often? It’s soulless
Its filled with people and if u dont believe go take at look ay beirut souks besides its ur capital city downtown area i think its totally worth it almost all nations have debts the problem isnt the one that was loaned to build it the problem is with all the corruption that isnt allowing u to pay ur debts back corruptions and retardedness like sherket l kahraba 2 billion dollars loss each year w mafi kahraba i think u should be more upset about that or getting ur nation into a war cause some miliia decided kidnapping 2 israeli soldiers is a smart idea !
