Lebanon is in mourning after a huge explosion in the capital Beirut killed at least 78 people and injured more than 4,000 others on Tuesday. The whole city was shaken by the blast, which began with a fire at the port which exploded into a mushroom cloud. President Michel Aoun said 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate had been stored unsafely in a warehouse for six years. He scheduled an urgent cabinet meeting for Wednesday, and said a two-week state of emergency should be declared. The country will observe an official period of mourning for three days from Wednesday.

Let’s see if the govt prosecutes itself for allowing thousands of tons of ammonium nitrate to be stored on the city’s doorstep.

This is the same exact same thing that happend in Texas city Texas back in the 40's


Just for the people that don’t know how this happened, basically a truck carrying a bunch of fireworks set on fire somehow, which ended up setting off the fireworks then the truck blew up when the fireworks where going off so it basically made a bomb


Imagine your day just turning into chaos, I hope they are fine. May Allah Bless them. I wish patience on the those dealing with loss.

What if 2020 is a trailer of 2021. If it is I’m moving to mars who’s coming with me?


Only 30 years after the end of the Lebanese Civil War in 1990, during which time pretty much everyone was involved in that part of the world: Palestinians, Syrian troops, Israëli troops, UN troops, Iranian, Russian and American intelligence and special forces, the entire city of Beirut looked pretty much like the damaged buildings in this video.

In late 1983, the USMC barracks in Beirut was hit by a massive suicide bomb installed inside a truck that rammed the gate and drove into the building before detonating. The explosion lifted the entire building six meters into the air, killing over 300 people.

Before the war started in 1975, Beirut had been a very prosperous city, dubbed the 'Geneva of the Middle East.'
I just looked it up but I cannot find it on the internet yet I know from memory that the place was called that before 1975 because it was a haven of peace and prosperity.

Marsh Arafat

Can we just end this year from here?
And we welcome 2021


I smell something fishy here! ????
