A devastating explosion shook Beirut to its core, causing streets to be littered with debris and leaving many injured or killed.
As the city tries to recover itself, internet users from all over the world have paid respects to the victims with their creative artworks.
Artist Carlos Latuff drew a heart-wrenching image of the Lebanese flag mourning for its victims.
BossLogic created a powerful artwork seeing the flag’s famous tree in the middle and a man holding up a smoke bomb releasing red smoke into the wind. There is debris on the foreground and the fires from the blast pictured in the background. The words “Stand Strong Lebanon” are printed in the middle.
“My condolences to all that have lost and to all that remain, please stay/stand strong for one another,” he captioned his artwork.
Other creatives have also shared their pieces on Twitter, offering their support to the people of Lebanon. See some of them below.
