People evicted, homes destroyed besides Avenue of the Rams.

People evicted, homes destroyed near Karnak besides Avenue of the Rams. :(

Google translate:
Abu League Dawn today
A huge number of Egyptian Police forces have moved along with the tanks and large mechanisms attacking at Dawn Abu League in the karnak area. The goal is to evacuate the population from the archaeological area adjacent to the karnak temple and the rams road.

This seems to have taken place as part of the grand master plan from 10 years ago. The attachment I include is 10 years old.

The government has a long-term plan for the development of Luxor covering the next 20 years. Farag declined to share details of the plan, but said it includes a few major projects.
