 Jreissati launches forest cleanup workshop in Sohmor: We are fighting today to preserve what remains of our environment

NNA - Environment Minister Fadi Jreissati patronized Sunday the launching of an environmental workshop to clean and protect forests from fires, during a ceremony organized by the Municipality of Sohmor in West Bekaa.

Addressing a crowd of attendees and participants, Jreissati paid tribute to Sohmor's fallen martyrs who lost their lives in struggling for its freedom and sovereignty from the enemy's oppression. He added that 'the battle today focuses on fighting to protect what remains of our environment.'

'With the same enthusiasm that we fought against the enemy, who wanted to take our land, we must fight to protect our land,' he said, adding, 'Our trees and rocks need protection from random queries, and our birds need protection from irresponsible hunters.'

'This is the battle for the environment,' he emphasized, urging townsmen to contribute with the same vigor and fight together to preserve their region's cleanliness.

Jreissati also called on the young men and women to partake committedly in this battle, for they are the most beautiful hope for a brighter and healthier tomorrow.
