Hans, very interesting, it seems that this building will be recycled into a three star hotel! Alex will be pleased.
The French designation for MMD is “Établissements Industriels de Défense” (EID), but its literal English translation directly from Arabic doesn’t match this, no matter which combination of words is used. It seems that this is also confusing for Syrian translators because sometimes this is translated as “Defense Coefficient Foundation”, which doesn’t make any sense. According to Elks the English translation is “Defence Industries Syndicate”.
