Save the Heritage of the South of Lebanon

Many of the villages and towns in the South have suffered a great deal of destruction as a direct result of the Israeli air strikes. The attacks targeted specifically the old centers of these villages and towns, where commercial and social activities are concentrated and where heritage sites are also concentrated.

In the aftermath of the war, the historic centers are now facing further demolition. Due to the wave of enthusiasm to rebuild and the need to facilitate for the return of the inhabitants and many other legitimate reasons, the historic cores are now facing total erasure. This is given the rapid indiscriminate process of rubble removal and rebuilding, the lack of coordination between forces on the ground (government agencies, NGOs, donors and private owners) and the absence of a clear vision and a precise strategy for the reconstruction project specific to each site. Even with one of the most severe case such as Bint Jbeil, whose center has suffered a great deal of damage, much of the historic urban fabric can be saved and some buildings can be restored and rehabilitated.

We the undersigned warn against such measures that will only mean the erasure of memory, history and identity and urge that the historic cores be designated as such and that immediate measures are taken to save them. We cannot allow them to be victimized again in the process of reconstruction and grant those who destroyed them in the first place their wish.
