Beirut Blast, we will never forget

In memory of the Beirut Blast.
On August 4th, 2020, one of the biggest explosions in history took place in the capital of Lebanon, Beirut.
The ammonium nitrate explosion caused a death toll of 204 people, 7500 injuries, and 15 billion dollars in property damage, leaving an estimated 300000 people homeless.
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.
