Syria war devastates Lebanon's fishing industry

Lebanese fishermen used to cross into Syrian waters where their catch was much better but now the area is off-limits.

    The war in Syria left a devastating impact on Lebanon's fishing industry, which once relied majorly on areas inside Syrian waters around the northern border.

    Fishermen used to cross into Syrian waters where their catch was much better, but now the Syrian navy prevents them from approaching those same areas, even firing towards them occasionally.
