Ramadan, a month of religious focus and abstinence for Muslims of all sects in the country, is expected to begin Tuesday or Wednesday after sunset, when streets will be decorated with lanterns and crescent moons as events welcome the vibrant "month of giving".While street food has been part of Ramadan for the past two years, filling Beirut's streets with the scent of spices and fresh Mediterranean food, the country's well-known Souk al-Akel food market does not yet have a Ramadan edition set for 2018 .The event, called Flavors of Ramadan will also feature "oriental Ramadan-themed items".This season, MTV will screen the second season hit Lebanese TV series "Al-Hayba," which was also aired last Ramadan, featuring prominent Syrian actor Taim Hassan as Jabal, a young member of a family clan that controls arms dealing and smuggling along the Syrian-Lebanese borders.
