On Tuesday, Rami Fawaz, aged 48, died after suffering for over 20 months from his injuries caused by the Beirut port explosion.
Fawaz was badly injured on August 4th, 2020 by a sheet of glass that fell on him due to the power of the blast that reached him in Ashrafieh where he lived with his family. He leaves behind a wife and two kids, aged 3 and 5.
Fawaz never recovered and passed away without having seen justice for the horrific crime inflicted on him and over 234 other victims, as well as those still in grave conditions.
The negligence and corruption that crippled Lebanon culminated on August 4th, 2020, with the explosion of the Beirut port that destroyed the capital, killed more than 234 people and injured over 6,000 others, some of whom were maimed for life, and some are still in critical conditions.
A horror that shook the nation and the world, and yet, the ruling body has appeared to give little importance to the apocalyptic consequences many in Lebanon are still suffering from, whether physically or mentally, or with the loss of their loved ones.
