The group of relatives put on the agenda the demolition of the large silos in the port and the judicial obstructions in the inquiry. William Noun, on behalf of the delegation, called on the public opinion to show solidarity with the cause of the affected families and to demand from the judiciary a transparent investigation in accordance with the law.

For his part, Hiyam Yassin al-Beqaa, who lost his son in the explosion expressed the position of rejection against anyone who obstructs the inquiries, because “the blood of my son will not go to waste, and I want his right”.

On August 4, 2020, an explosion of enormous proportions accentuated Lebanon’s worst economic and financial crisis, as a result of the ignition of 2,375 tons of ammonium nitrate that had been improperly stored in the Beirut port for more than six years.
