One of the Lebanese citizens killed in a New Year’s Eve attack on a nightclub in Turkey had written an eerie post to her Facebook before flying to Istanbul, it has been revealed.
Rita Chami, who had lost her mother to cancer four months ago, had posted: “Hopefully we will have fun [in Turkey], worst case scenario is that I will die in a blast and follow my mom,’’ according to the IMLebanon news website.
According to a source, her brokenhearted father told Lebanon’s MTV: “I tried to stop her [from going to Turkey] but she decided to go with her friends.”
Rita also posted on her Facebook a poem in Arabic about the dead and whether “they are always there ... always among us and around us.” There were several other posts grieving the loss of her mother.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the gun attack on the Istanbul nightclub which killed 39 people, the group said in a statement on Monday.
