Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Joumblatt told The Daily Star Thursday that he was "beginning to" oppose the controversial Bisri Dam project, set to be built partially in an area where he wields strong political influence. Joumblatt said in a tweet the night before that he was reconsidering his previous support for the project. The dam is set to be built in the Bisri Valley, which lies between the districts of Jezzine and Chouf. Joumblatt in Wednesday night's tweet described the incident as a "terrorist act" and demanded that those responsible be arrested.
