I am working on a land use/land cover map of Lebanon with QGIS. This shapefile has a .prj file, but apparently QGIS fails in recognizing the projection, as it results shifted northeastwards.
See below (purple, the correct location of Lebanon; sky blue, the LULC map as positioned by QGIS according to the .prj file)
Here's the .prj content
Also, the .prj is not associated to any EPSG already listed in the QGIS database.
According to epsg.io, in Lebanon three different EPSG are used
Changing the CRS to 22780 did not result in any change, while 22700 or 22770 apparently seemed to be the appropriate CRS. "Apparently", because some kind of bias emerged at closer inspection, some kind of clockwise rotation.
Is there a way to fix the issue (in QGIS or, even better, with R)? Any idea on what is all about?
