Haifa Wahbi in Lebanon despite chaos

Lebanese superstar Haifa Wahbi was frantically trying to contact her mother and sister who live in downtown Beirut after Hezbollah occupied parts of the city.

Rumors claim that Haifa has left Lebanon.

According to the London daily Elaph, Haifa’s press representative told Elaph that Haifa is still in Lebanon and wishing for peace in Lebanon.

Elaph called Haifa and she reported that she is like other Lebanese artists who are stuck in their homes in Beirut. Lebanese artist Jowana Malah is staying in a shelter under her apartment building.

Haifa has been in Lebanon since the crises erupted. Hezbollah forces closed all roads leading to her house in the Verdun area. Haifa said that she and her family are following the crises on television, just like the rest of the Lebanese people.

During the war between Israel and Lebanon in the summer of 2006 Haifa had to leave Beirut for her safety.
