Bi'r al Ghanam (Municipality of Yafran) is a small town situated 85 km from Tripoli in the direction of the Hammada Al Hamra desert (South-West). Its villagers initially built their farms around a well, the only source of water at this time and started rearing sheep. Nowadays, they are living around the main road, a few kilometres away from the well but their main source of income is still sheep rearing. Main road
