A restaurant was shut down in south Lebanon Tuesday as part of the country's ongoing campaign against food outlets that do not meet safety criteria, though one of the owners denied that the closure was due to health issues.Abu Alaa, owner of the Sidon branch of Syrian restaurant and sweet shop Ya Mal al-Sham, said the restaurant had been closed due to the fact that the restaurant's kitchen was not tiled and the chairs and tables were old. The food campaign launched a month ago by Health Minister Wael Abu Faour led to the closure of several slaughterhouses, including Beirut's main abattoir, in addition to restaurants and dairy product factories across the country.
