The capital of Lebanon is tainted black, and the Beirut port is reduced to nothing but ashes.
Lebanon is in national mourning for three days, officially, but the grief and sorrow will take long to heal. Beirut, the capital that has always refused to die, has just taken a massive blow.
And she will rise again, like she always did, from amid the rumbles and the ashes, like the Phoenix she has always been.
Because Beirut, sit el-douniyah, is the city that refuses to die.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources.
