Khatib specifically requested that the general environment attorney in the north, Ghassan Bassil, enforce Lebanese hunting laws, after images of a hunter showing off rare birds he had poached circulated on social media. The hunter is seen displaying his prey on the hood of his car. Offenders can face up to a month in jail, a LL500,000 ($333) fine, or both. Their hunting weapon may be confiscated and their license revoked for up to three years.In April, Khatib announced new hunting rules and regulations that will govern this year's season. The season will begin in September and end the following January, the minister said, and hunters will be required to undergo physical and mental health tests, in addition to reading and practical exams on hunting laws. Separately Monday, Khatib met with a delegation of truck drivers that mainly work with quarries and rock crushers.
