Beirut residents protest on the streets to send a message to Nasrallah

Lebanese citizens gathered in Beirut to mark the anniversary of Rafik Hariri’s assassination. They paid tribute to his legacy by calling out the name of his son, Saad Hariri, in a show of remembrance.

Saad Hariri stepped down as Prime Minister in 2005 due to growing Iranian involvement in Lebanon and concerns about his safety. 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 urged his party not to participate in parliamentary elections.

The anniversary of Rafik Hariri’s death is an important day for Lebanon, serving as a reminder of the impact he had on the country and the ongoing struggles and challenges that its people face. The public display of remembrance and unity in Beirut is a powerful symbol of the lasting legacy that Rafik Hariri left behind on Lebanon and its people.
