Minister for the Displaced Alice Shabtini Friday issued a decision for Druze residents to evacuate homes belonging to Christians who were forced to leave the Chouf village of Brih during Lebanon's Civil War.The decision is part of reconciliation efforts between the Christians and the Druze of Chouf given momentum following the 2001 historic visit paid by former Maronite Patriarch Nasrallah Butros Sfeir to the mountainous region.The reconciliation plan seeks to bring back Christians of Brih who were displaced during battles that took place between the militias of the predominantly Druze Progressive Socialist Party and the Lebanese Forces in Chouf in 1983 . Brih was originally inhabited by Christians and Druze.
