Beirut explosion: Massive blast devastates city's port area

  • Publicado el 3 ago 2020
  • A massive explosion shook Lebanon’s capital of Beirut on Tuesday, devastating the city's port area, with the blast billowing smoke over the city. Lebanon’s internal security chief Abbas Ibrahim said the blast happened in a section that housed highly-explosive materials. Crystal Goomansingh reports.
    According to Reuters, at least 10 people have been found dead following the explosion. The Lebanese Red Cross said hundreds of people were also taken to hospitals for treatment, but many remain trapped in homes damaged by the explosion.
    The deadly explosion comes at a time when Lebanon is experiencing its worst economic and financial crisis in decades.
    It also comes amid rising tensions between Israel and the militant Hezbollah group along Lebanon’s southern border.

      @The Gemini Club It is highly unlikely they would be manufacturing explosives in the city but the truth is those of us on the other side of the world will never know. I know what the world thinks of them but they are not all guilty of violence. There were innocent lives lost, innocent people badly hurt.

Please my friend, you have to separate the ordinary Lebanese people from the terrorist Hezbollah ... they basically hate us and want to change Lebanon’s identity. They are just agents of the regime Syria and Iran, as for us, our relationship is excellent with America and its people and more than half of Lebanon's people don't want this party.

    i read up on this, from what i read, the main blast was from ammonium nitrate. turns out that ammonium nitrate on it's own is a fire hazard as it acts as an oxidizer, but it can explosively decompose into NO2 and H2O gas if it's detonated by a smaller explosion. so maybe those smaller explosions you can see in some of the footage triggered the main blast and without that this may have been just a huge fire. i could be wrong about some of that as i'm no expert but thats based what i read.

    David Ranson, Deputy Director, Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine, Forensic Pathologist and Head of Forensic Services
    "Explosions and fire resulting in mass deaths are one of the most difficult challenges confronting forensic teams as they go about the painstaking work of working out what happened and identifying the victims in order to return them to their families and loved ones.
    Recovering the bodies from the scene of the disaster can be dangerous, particularly when there is extensive structural damage to buildings.
    The task undertaken by forensic pathologists, dentists, scientists and mortuary specialists, in dealing with the often fragmented remains, is both scientifically and emotionally challenging. Applying the Interpol DVI (disaster victim identification) guidelines is critical in ensuring that this humanitarian task is performed quickly and reliably."

    The first initial explosion and fire is a fireworks one, its smaller and more of a burn than an actual explosion, the second is the ignition and explosion of a high concentration of ammonium nitrite, which you do not use in fireworks nor store near any potential source of flame due to how volatile it is. You can search up farm silo explosions to see what happens when the stuff explodes on a smaller scale, this right here was a warehouse filled with the stuff going up in one massive explosion, I don’t know why the fire started, nor do I know which idiots thought storing ammonium nitrate near anything remotely flammable would be a good idea, but this is a type of thing that could easily be caused on purpose and made to look like an accident if someone wanted to. We don’t know all the details, but either way, storing those two things near eachother was asking for trouble to happen eventually.

    You know I started thinking that the smoke looked exactly like the smoke cloud on 9/11, it's a pyroclastic smoke cloud from intense heat like a volcano. And the flashes of light is not fireworks, it's Nano thermite explosive charges going off and the resulting pyroclastic cloud and then it sets off the explosives. It dawned on me because it reminded me of 9/11

    I am a lebanese citizen, things are still mysterious, but its said that there was a fire that triggered fireworks in a factory then the fire increased and the heat reacted with ammonium nitrate. The first explosion caused an earthquake of magnitude 4.5 wich caused building to collapse then the second explosion caused a shockwave that blasted windows several miles around the port and caused destruction, fires and the most damage to beirut making this explosion second to hiroshima and nakazaki only, and till now people are being found under the rubble.
