UNESCO Beirut completed the Safeguarding of World Heritage Site Byblos and all shores of the ancient city are clean from the oil spill after the 2006 war on Lebanon.

The project which was initialized by UNESCO after the 2006 war on Lebanon in cooperation with the Lebanese Ministry of Culture and financed by the Japanese Government has ended and the Byblos site is once again protected.
