Apparently, the “summer season” extended itself in Lebanon, enjoying the political heat that afflicts the country and the regional events surrounding it, bringing the temperatures back to the rise, while it is expected to exceed 30 degrees in the next two days.
For its part, the Ministry of Environment, in a statement, renewed its alert of “the significant increase in the fire risk index across the country today and in the next few days.”
She said: “Based on the “Firelab” system of the University of Balamand, relatively large areas in Akkar, the Bekaa, the northern interior regions and southern Lebanon were classified with a severe fire danger circle. Mount Lebanon Governorate is still exposed to a high risk of fires, especially in the Chouf district and its surroundings. In addition to the favorable conditions for the spread of fires from indicators of hot weather above seasonal rates and dry vegetation cover, burning agricultural residues increases the risk of catastrophic fires that cannot be easily controlled.”
And she continued: “As a result, the Ministry of Environment urges everyone to be aware of the danger of fires today and in the coming days, to join efforts and immediately report any human activities that may cause any fire to the local authorities, the internal security forces and the municipal police responsible for implementing the laws and informing the Civil Defense immediately in If the fire breaks out.”
