The people of Lebanon gathered in Beirut to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Rafik Hariri’s assassination. They paid tribute to his legacy and his impact on the country, with a powerful show of unity and remembrance.
Saad Hariri, son of the assassinated leader, was among those who attended the event. He resigned as Prime Minister due to growing Iranian involvement in Lebanon and fear of assassination. In 2022, he announced his retirement from political life, citing Iran’s influence on the country through Hezbollah as one of the reasons for his decision. He even called on his party not to run in the parliamentary elections.
The anniversary is an important and emotional day for Lebanese citizens, serving as a reminder of the challenges and struggles they continue to face. Rafik Hariri’s life and legacy have had a lasting impact on Lebanon and its people, with this public display of remembrance serving as a powerful symbol of that legacy.
