Lebanese citizens gathered in the streets of Beirut to commemorate the assassination of Rafik Hariri. They honored his memory by chanting his son’s name, Saad Hariri, as part of a powerful show of remembrance.
In 2022, Saad Hariri resigned from his position as Prime Minister due to growing Iranian involvement in Lebanon and fear of assassination. He announced his retirement from political life, citing Iran’s influence on the country through Hezbollah as one of the reasons for his decision. Additionally, he urged his party not to run in the parliamentary elections.
The anniversary of Rafik Hariri’s assassination is an important and emotional day for the people of Lebanon. It serves as a reminder of his lasting impact on the country and the ongoing struggles and challenges that they face. The public display of remembrance and unity in Beirut is a powerful symbol of the enduring legacy that Rafik Hariri left behind.
Despite facing many difficulties, Lebanese citizens continue to honor Rafik Hariri’s memory through their actions and dedication towards building a better future for themselves and their country.
