With no support in sight, the protection of Beirut’s architectural heritage has been solely the responsibility of NGOs and private owners. But with the sad reality that the LAW No194, which forbade any real estate transaction or demolition in the area affected by the blast, was not extended, this leaves our heritage and identity endangered.
