Most People Have No Clue What This Man Did During A Terrorist Attack Last Week

I had heard of the Beirut attack. Seven Syrians were arrested over it. I had not heard of this brave man’s sacrifice. He was at the market with his daughter when the first bomb went off. He saw the second bomber and tackled him. The bomb exploded and both men died. 43 people perished and over 239 were wounded. Now Adel Termos is remembered as a hero who saved hundreds of lives by giving up his own. His children will grow up now without their father… his wife will have to go on without the man she loves. All because of evil terrorists and their killing ways. Ali Awad, 14, was chopping vegetables when the first bomb struck. Adel Tormous, who would die tackling the second bomber, was sitting at a nearby coffee stand. Khodr Alaa Deen, a registered nurse, was on his way to work his night shift at the teaching hospital of the American University at Beirut, in Lebanon. All three died needlessly and tragically. The world did not even notice. And evil went to look for its next victims.


From Viral Nova:

Last week, the world was shaken by brutal acts of terrorism in Paris. Over the weekend, many of us gathered in support of those victims, sending prayers and love from across the globe. But sadly, that heartwarming outpouring of kindness has had one significant drawback: we have neglected to notice those who are also suffering in Beirut and Baghdad.

Both areas were targets of suicide bombing attacks just hours before the attacks in Paris occurred, but they’ve received little to no coverage in the press. Facebook isn’t offering to let us temporarily filter our profile pictures with their flags’ colors, even though their citizens have felt as much loss and pain as the people of France.

In Beirut, a marketplace erupted as two bombers made their way through the crowd. The blasts took 43 lives and wounded at least 239 others. But those numbers might have been even higher if it weren’t for the brave, split-second decision of one heroic man.

Adel Termos was at the marketplace with his daughter when he saw the first bomb go off.

Chaos and debris flew everywhere as people panicked to find shelter. That’s when Termos noticed a second bomber preparing to attack.

Instead of running in the other direction, Termos went straight for the man and tackled him. The bomb went off, killing both men. With his brave final act, Termos saved hundreds of lives.

His daughter, shown here at her dad’s funeral, was one of the lucky people who was saved by his heroic actions.

Both the Paris carnage and the Beirut bombings were claimed by ISIS. I think the reason Paris received more worldwide coverage was that terrorism is not as common there as in Beirut. It is also one of the hearts of the western world. All lives matter and those lost in Beirut are just as tragic as those in Paris. Lebanon seemed to have recovered over the past year and a half from a series of bombings claimed by Sunni militant groups as revenge for the intervention by Hezbollah, the Lebanon-based Shiite militia. Now this. The explosions took place in the southern part of the city near a busy open-air market in the Bourj al-Barajneh district. These attacks appear to be part of a global wave of terrorism ISIS has unleashed in recent months. Last month, another bombing in Ankara, Turkey, left nearly 100 dead. In August, a large car bomb exploded in the Egyptian capital of Cairo, injuring six. In July, clashes between the Islamic State and Egypt left over 100 militants and 17 Egyptian soldiers dead in the Sinai. It looks like ISIS is seriously upping their game. Their next stop may be America.
