Update: Anthony just informed me that the land that got sold is not actually the one displayed but rather to the side in a town called Dlebta which lies very close to Harissa. Regardless the location, this land is very precious in its biodiversity and its flora and fauna. Thank you Anthony!

The above picture has been circulating today via emails and on Facebook, showing the huge piece of land that a Saudi Prince bought in the village of Dlebta near Harissa. I am not against selling lands to Arabs or foreigner investors but there should be a quota and restrictions. You can’t just sell a whole mountain like that.

Does anyone have any idea to whom this piece of land belongs? Such massive lands usually belong to the Church.
