TRIPOLI, Lebanon: Authorities in the northern city of Tripoli agreed Friday to launch a crackdown on illegal encroachments in public spaces.
Tripoli Mayor Nader Ghazal said the operation would be initiated in all bazaars along both sides of Abu Ali River channel Sunday.
He said the operation would be coordinated with the head of the Carts Association to remove illegal stands and reorganize to end chaos in other markets.
Ghazal said the municipality was only concerned about Lebanese vendors, stressing that illegal carts owned by Syrian refugees were the concern of U.N. agencies.
