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.

    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.
