We have lost an inspirational 27yrs cousin who, 10 days after the 4th of August explosion in Beirut, was found dead among the missed Lebanese rescue team firemen, the heroes who lost their life while saving the lives of others. My condolences to your family Joe Bou Saab R.I.P. 🙏 pic.twitter.com/YlHincipEf— Eva Nassif (@EvaNassifVimy) August 17, 2020
