Akkar District

Akkar

(Arabic: عكار‎) is a district (qadaa) in the North Governorate, Lebanon. It covers an area of 788 km2 and has a population of 198,174. The capital lies at Halba. The district is characterized by the presence of a relatively large coastal plain, with high mountains to the east. The largest cities in Akkar are Berkail, Bebnin and the township of Mish Mish is also located within Akkar. Akkar has many important Roman and Arabic archeological sites. One of the most famous archeological sites and the birth place of the Emperor Alexander Severus, is the Tell of Arqa near the town of Miniara.

Demographics

The inhabitants of the Akkar region are largely Sunni Muslims and Maronite. Orthodox Christians inhabit the area in fairly large numbers, moreover, this region has the largest population of Alawites in Lebanon. Melkites or Greek Cathlics are also present in small numbers in the region.

The Palestinian refugee camp of Nahr al-Bared (which housed Fatah al-Islam that was destroyed during the conflict of may 2007) was also home to the largest market in Akkar. Many Lebanese in Akkar relied on the tax-free goods and black market prices to keep the cost of living down in a country with a current inflation at 5.6%. Fatah al-Islam was defeated by the lebanese army at Nahr al-Bared in a conflict which began in May 2007, which also resulted in a devastating blow to the local economy. Download Brochure
