(NNA) The Middle East Airlines plane “Airbus 321-Flight #272” landed at Beirut International Airport, carrying 44 passengers and the bodies of the 3 victims of the Istanbul attack, as well as members of the Lebanese official delegation and families of the victims.

Prime Minister Saad Hariri and senior officials greeted the families of the victims at the entrance to the plane, while Red Cross ambulances gathered to transport the bodies of the martyrs and the wounded to various hospitals.

PM Hariri also went on board the plane accompanied by Foreign Affairs Minister Gebran Bassil, in order to check on the health condition of the wounded.

Thirty-nine people, the majority of them foreigners, were killed and around 70 others were wounded when a gunman went on a rampage at Istanbul’s night club on New Year’s Eve.

Three Lebanese were killed and six others were wounded in the attack which ISIL terrorist group has claimed responsibility for.
