That catastrophe marked one of the largest non-nuclear blasts in recent history, but the world has done nothing to find out why it happened, the rapporteurs reported.
They noted that on the second anniversary of the explosion, it is disheartened that people in Lebanon still wait for justice, and so they are calling for an international quest that ought to be initiated without further delay.
The tragedy, caused by a stockpile of ammonium nitrate stored in a port warehouse, destroyed 77,000 apartments, killed more than 200 people, wounded 7,000 and displaced over 300,000 more, according to official figures.
The UN experts who recently visited Beirut pointed out that responsibility for the explosion has not yet to be established, affected areas remain in ruins and reconstruction funds from the international community have barely begun to reach beneficiaries.
The Beirut port blast came months after the October 2019 popular uprising to accentuate Lebanon’s worst economic and financial crisis, which is now dragging four out of five citizens into poverty.
