Against the backdrop of escalating events on the southern front, the return of former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri to Beirut to commemorate the 19th anniversary of his father, President Rafik Hariri's assassination, has captured considerable attention.

This is particularly noteworthy as it unfolds within an indirect political and popular atmosphere, characterized by both organized and spontaneous mobilization.

Hariri, who had chosen to step back from the political scene two years ago following a string of disappointments and amidst growing internal political pressure, reemerged before the Lebanese people amid intricate political and military circumstances. This comes at a pivotal moment as the region stands on the verge of significant transformations, nearing a crucial political settlement that demands close monitoring.

From paying respects at his father's tomb to addressing the crowds at Bayt El Wasat, Hariri emphasized that Rafik Hariri's vision was one of moderation. He reassured the people, stating, "I stand with you wherever you are, and ultimately, everything will be alright. Saad Hariri does not abandon his people."
