The explosion in Beirut not only shocked the Lebanese people but also the whole world. In the past few hours, almost everyone has been glued to the screens, praying for the dead and wounded, and many went one step further by donating millions of dollars within this little time to help the nation get back on its feet.
If we go by the stats then Beirut explosion stands as the third-worst right after the cruelty that happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. However, as the world has always known the Lebanese people as the most optimistic and courageous, the nation has yet again proved why their determination will always remain unbeatable and this time they deserve a salute as well.
We are bringing you live updates of how the residents of Beirut, who luckily remained safe from the Beirut Explosion, came out of their homes and gave their best to help the ones in need.
Looking at these pictures, one is also bound to wonder how the future of Lebanon would have been if the government was ever loyal to its people. We have never seen a nation that has so much potential despite going through all sorts of crisis, all together.
People spent all day and night to immediately clean the streets.
