Stop At: Rashaya Citadel, Rashaya Lebanon

In 1943, the members of the new Lebanese Government, President Beshara el-Khoury himself, the Speaker of Parliament Adel Osseyran, and ministers Camille Shamoun, Abdel-Hamid Karameh and Selim Takla, were imprisoned in the citadel of Rashaya. The latter quickly disavowed the Commissioner’s action, so the prisoners left the citadel of Rashaya head high to declare the Independence of the Lebanese Republic on November 22nd.
