Lebanon's Ministry of Environment Thursday denied that it had exempted a stadium project in a Beirut park from an environmental impact assessment.The statement comes in light of a report published one day earlier in local daily Al-Akhbar, which said that the ministry had exempted a project to relocate a football stadium situated in one of Beirut's most densely populated neighborhoods, Tariq al-Jadideh, to Horsh Beirut from the environmental impact assessment. It added that an environmental impact assessment was not exempted for the municipal stadium and parking lot project in Horsh Beirut, since the project had been put into effect in 2015 .The Al-Akhbar article criticized the Municipality of Beirut, Beirut Governor Ziad Chebib and the Interior Ministry for failing to protect Horsh Beirut, which is a public recreational space.
