The disaster, happening at a time that the whole world is battling with the COVID-19 pandemic, is most unfortunate and regrettably poses an even greater challenge for the Lebanese government and people,” said the statement.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the bereaved families, the wounded, and the displaced. Lebanon shall overcome this tragedy,” the statement added.
