Orient Today: “Families of the port blast victims affirm their support to Bitar’s investigation into the explosion”

How sad, especially that in the articles above, many families reported that this spokesperson’s way of speaking did not resemble him at all. His voice, his facial expressions, and the text that he read in the video. Plus, he did not consult with them earlier, which is contrary to his habits.

Nevertheless, it is reassuring to hear the united voice of the families of the victims. Best wishes!

To conclude this post on a musical note, and if she may, Bambi would like to offer Mr. Ghassan Saliba’s moving song to all the families of the victims of the Beirut blast. The song is in Arabic, but if you are interested, an English translation appears in an earlier post (shared at the end of this one).
