IN PHOTOS: Simple and Heartfelt Gesture as Dubai Hands Out White Roses to Lebanese Residents

Simple but sweet and heartfelt gesture from Dubai as Dubai welcomes back Lebanese residents with white roses at the Dubai Airport. This is a gesture of support for the Lebanese people after a deadly blast occurred in Beirut last week.

The blast left many people in Beirut devastated with dozens dead, thousands injured and even more who lost their homes.

The UAE has already sent tonnes of medical emergency aid to Beirut days after the blast and this is another gesture showing that the emirate is in solidarity as Lebanon is facing this tragedy.
