Beirut was once a tourist hotspot: Tourists from across the Middle East met and mingled in its nightclubs. But the war in Syria has tourists staying away this summer. Many fear the conflict there could ignite neighboring Lebanon.
Frustration, fear and powerlessness on the one hand, hope and a new perspective on the other. How do people in Syria deal with the conflict? How has it changed everyday life? Adonis Alkhaled reports.
The Arab League has demanded an international probe into a chemical weapons attack but stopped short of supporting strikes. They further criticized Iran for its role in the Syrian conflict.
After Lebanon's cabinet reaffirmed an official policy of remaining neutral in regional conflicts, Saad Hariri has withdrawn his resignation. He is expected to attend talks in Paris with US and French diplomats.
Israel has struck what it referred to as Iranian targets inside Syria in "large-scale" raids. The operations come after an Israeli warplane crashed under fire from Syrian air defenses.
