Charbel Lights Up an Underwater Christmas Tree

Interior Minister Marwan Charbel lit up on Saturday an underwater Christmas tree that was constructed by a team of civil defense divers in the bay of Jounieh, the state-run National News Agency said.

Charbel lit up the tree from a Civil Defense boat, in the presence of Head of Civil Defense Brigadier General Raymond Khattar, head of the Syndicate of Maritime Firms Jean Beiruti and members of the regional maritime rescue unit.

Charbel said “Lebanon will face challenges...but do not be pessimistic...the hearts of Lebanese and politicians are full of hope for the rise of Lebanon which will surpass all difficulties.”

A team of divers, under the supervision of head of regional maritime rescue unit, Samir Yazbek, decorated the tree under the sea at a depth of 30 meters on the wreck of a ship.
