A Company Reportedly Removed Beirut Blast Victims’ Portraits To Put An Ad


Lebanese activist, Roy Boukhary, posted on Twitter that a company removed more than 20 Beirut blast victims’ pictures in Beirut to put an advertisement.

In response, some activists gathered later to hang posters of the victims above the advertisement, making a strong statement by it.

“We will not forgive and will not forget the criminality of the Lebanese authorities, and we will continue to demand justice for the victims of the August 4th explosion,” Boukhary added on Twitter.

This act did not pass by without comments from their parents, including Sarah Copland, the mother of one of the youngest Beirut blast victims, Isaac Oehlers.

Sarah expressed via her Twitter account, “I sobbed when I saw this. At the inhumanity of the company and the kindness of those always looking out for my son.”

Almost two years after the horrific explosion, it is still claiming the lives of wounded victims enduring suffering or in a coma ever since, while the authorities continue to disregard the crucial priority of pursuing justice.

Remember their names…
