Along with the dozens of lives, Beirut has lost so much more. It will never be the same.
August 4th will go down in Lebanon’s history as the dark day in which its capital quaked in massive destruction by an obscure explosion the country has never seen the like before, even in its times of war.
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. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
