Bilal Sharara, Secretary General of the Lebanese Parliament spoke recently with WSN's Manuela Paraipan.
WSN: Good afternoon, sir. I know you have recently written a book about Bint Jbeil. Could you tell me a little bit about the history of the village?
BILAL SHARARA: The story of Bint Jbeil is a long story because of the village's strategic position on the border. Its commercial and cultural features also add to its value in the region. It is the nearest village to Palestine. Before the
Israeli occupation of Palestine, Bint Jbeil had significant relations with the markets in Haifa. There were many people, residents of Bint Jbeil who had shops there.
