My Lebanese husband and I are scheduled to leave for Beirut June 23rd to visit his family for a month. Half of the family live in Baalbek and the other half live in the Beirut suburb of Dahiyeh. I have been watching the local news closely and am getting pretty nervous about traveling there. My husband is also a little hesitant considering our family lives in areas that are heavily controlled and monitored by Hezbollah.
I don't know if I am reading too much news which is making me paranoid or if my concerns are valid. Has anyone been to Baalbek the past few days? How is the situation on the ground right now?
