Gulf Exchange wishes the people of Lebanon a Happy Independence Day!

Today is Lebanese Independence Day, commemorating the anniversary of France’s official recognition of Lebanon’s independence in 1943. Although Lebanon technically won its independence in 1941, it remained under French colonial rule until November 22, 1943. On this day, French authorities released Lebanese officials held captive for 11 days outside of the capital. ~ Source: Google Doodles
