Nizar Najarian was inside Al-Kataeb Central House in Beirut, which is in the proximity of the port, when the explosion took place. The incident left him with a head injury and his wounds resulted in his death.
Hospitals are finding themselves unable to receive more casualties, and many are being treated outside the hospitals’ buildings.
Hotel Dieu Hospital stated having 500 injured people and urged the wounded and people carrying the wounded to seek other hospitals. Calls for blood donation are circulating for all hospitals in the capital.
This is indeed a horrible day for Lebanon that has been already under tremendous duress from too many crises.
May those we lost today rest in peace and may the nation stand strong.
