External interference Possible Cause of Beirut Explosion: Lebanon’s President

External interference Possible Cause of Beirut Explosion: Lebanon’s President

Alwaght- Lebanon’s president said it is possible that Tuesday’s powerful explosions in the Port of Beirut were caused by a rocket or bomb.

Michel Aoun said “The cause has not been determined yet. There is a possibility of external interference through a rocket or bomb or other act". The authorities previously stated that the ammonium nitrate stash had detonated.

Aoun said that the probe into the blast will check whether it was caused by “negligence or an accident,” or some type of external force.

The president promised that everyone responsible for the explosions will be held accountable.

On Tuesday, two massive explosions rocked Beirut, killing at least 135 people. The powerful shockwave caused war-like devastation across several city blocks around the port area, displacing over 300,000 residents.

Speculation immediately arose online that Israeli regime could has been behind the blasts.

Initial reports suggested that the explosions were triggered by a blaze at a fireworks depot. Lebanon’s Prime Minister Hassan Diab later confirmed that around 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate, a highly explosive substance used in fertilizer and bombs, had detonated at the port’s warehouse. The hazardous chemicals were confiscated from the Moldovan-flagged Russian-owned cargo ship MV Rhosus in 2014.
