Lebanese citizens gathered in the streets of Beirut to commemorate the anniversary of Rafik Hariri’s assassination. They called out the name of his son, Saad Hariri, in a powerful show of remembrance.

In 2022, Saad Hariri announced his retirement from political life, citing Iran’s influence on Lebanon through Hezbollah as one of the reasons for his decision. He even called on his party not to run in the parliamentary elections. This was a significant step for the leader who had resigned from his position as Prime Minister due to growing Iranian involvement in Lebanon and fear of assassination.

The anniversary of Rafik Hariri’s assassination is an important and emotional day for the people of Lebanon. It is a reminder of the impact his legacy had 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 lasting impact that Rafik Hariri’s life and legacy has had on Lebanon and its people.
