Akkar Explosion Claims Another Victim

Despite it being weeks since the devastating explosion in Akkar, the tragedy continues to claim the lives of innocent citizens. Ali Chrayteh has sadly passed away due to the severity of his burns.

According to local sources, hospitals could not treat many of the victims in Akkar due to the fact that they were unequipped to deal with such severe burn cases. Ali was one of the individuals transported to Turkey for treatment, but he, unfortunately, could not make it.

A comprehensive list of victims is yet to be issued by the government, several weeks later. As the crisis claims more and more innocent lives, the government remains an idle spectator to the harrowing situation in Lebanon.
