# Beirut is a disaster area after the explosion ... a great tragedy ... dead - wounded - massive destruction and victims still under the rubble 💔
All the blame is on our mortgaged state ... All right over those who arrived by force of arms ... ... Curses the enemies of Lebanon, east and west

Celebrities participated in a great campaign of solidarity with Lebanon and its people, and they sent their condolences to the victims and their families, and their calls to the recovered.
The Egyptian singer Sherine published a tweet expressing her solidarity and invitations to Lebanon and his family, while the Lebanese singer Elissa confirmed that her house was completely broken, stressing that nothing matters in such circumstances except that "God protects Lebanon."
The artist Mohamed Assaf also published a video that accompanied his calls to Lebanon and the people of Lebanon, and the artist, Sulafa Mimar, expressed her great shock at what happened, and that Lebanon does not deserve this destruction and violence.
My heart was seared from Goa, and my country was defeated. I thank God, I am well, and may God be in witness, and all the wounded recover, O Lord! My house is broken, but it is not important, the important thing.
May God protect Lebanon

A large number of the tweeters indicated that the explosion occurred due to an active action, and some of them exposed that what happened was an explosion by Israeli planes at a Hezbollah arms headquarters in the port.
The activists considered that what happened is a matter of disrupting the port and increasing the economic blockade of Lebanon.
The Saudi dissident, Omar bin Abdul Aziz, likened the explosion to what happened weeks ago in Iran, and it is likely that they are Israeli qualitative operations against the Iranian axis.
These explosions are similar to those that have occurred for weeks in Iran, and so far no source is known, and it is more likely (according to some reports) that they are specific Israeli operations against the axis of Iran, may God preserve Lebanon.

What happened is a matter of disrupting the port and increasing the economic blockade on Lebanon, and these are the last cards of the Americans.
The one who ridicules the topic says "conspiracy theory" and Yadhahk is a partner with the blood of the wounded and the martyrs who went today.
What happened is much more than just an innocent accident.

The talk about the explosion of a firecracker warehouse in the port of Beirut # is not correct and information used to mislead.
There are dozens of dead and hundreds wounded, and information about a Hezbollah Hezbollah arms and missile store in the area has been targeted.
There are surprises that overwhelm the government of Lebanon and delay the announcement of an official position, so it will be fine

After this catastrophe that rocked Lebanon, how will the situation of Hezbollah be, and where will this party take Lebanon after this devastation and destruction, God bless you, Lebanon

Most of my mind personally, that the massive bombing, as a result of targeting #Israel to threaten it .. whatever the truth, hurts and terrorizes us again, irresponsibility, # those responsible for the security of Lebanon
and the Lebanese people
that # Lebanon_The square is repeatedly permitted, and the people of Lebanon are lost They are defeated .. the
next one is blind .. Lebanon is dying! pic.twitter.com/VKixnFX3bh

On the other hand, Hamad bin Khalifa University researcher, Mark Owen Jones, a specialist on Middle Eastern affairs and fake digital media advertising, asked about the fire near a grain silo that could be highly explosive and also contributed to the explosion and expected it to be part of the investigation.
I do wonder, the fire occurred next to a grain silo as well, which can be very explosive. I wonder if this contributed to the explosion too, or was triggered by the flame. I imagine it will be part of the investigation. #Beirut #beirutexplosion pic.twitter.com/yxG6HgP4EJ
