In memory of the Beirut Blast.

Remember their names. Remember their faces. We won't forgive. We won't forget. Justice shall be served.

في ذكرى إنفجار بيروت.

في الرابع من آب/أغسطس سنة ٢٠٢٠، شهدت العاصمة اللبنانية، بيروت، أحد أكبر الإنفجارات في التاريخ.

تذكروا أسماءهم. تذكروا وجوههم. لن ننسى. لن ننسى. يجب تحقيق العدالة.
