Kataeb MP Elias Hankache on Friday voiced its sorrow over the death of firefighter Joe Akiki who passed away in the deadly blast that has rocked Beirut city on Tuesday.
“You are a hero,” Hankache wrote on Twitter.
“Pray for us and for your friends so they can get out from under the rubbles. Pray for your mom and God be with her,” he said.
For his part, former minister Alain Hakim accused the current ruling authority of the tragedy Lebanon is experiencing today, deeming them as people with no mercy nor feeling.
“There is nothing more left to say. Our youth are struggling to live not to die,” Hakim tweeted.
“Whoever didn’t migrate yet, you are forcing them to leave or you are killing them,” he said.
“May the souls of everyone who left us rest in peace. Greetings to your soul, comrade Joe Akiki,” he added.
Kataeb party’s Deputy-President Selim Sayegh also mourned the death of firefighter Joe Akiki, sending him goodbye.
“Beloved Joe… Goodbye,” he wrote on Twitter.
