Many are wondering who was behind the massive explosion in Beirut on Aug. 4, 2020, that has killed over 220 people. Another 110 people are still missing. In addition to the deaths over 6,000 people were injured and another 300,000 saw their residences damaged or destroyed.
The explosion took place when a stockpile of nearly 3,000-tons of highly explosive ammonium nitrate ignited.
The first clue on who was behind it was provided this past weekend, when thousands of people took to the streets of Beirut in angry and violent protests against their government over the explosion. READ: Entire Lebanese Cabinet resigns as Beirut explosion death toll surpasses 200
Why? Because the people of Lebanon, knew why the ammonium nitrate was there.
According to a recent report, the extremist Hezbollah terror group was stock piling the ammonium-nitrate as part of its plan to ignite a third war with Israel. Members of the violent terrorist group are embedded in the Lebanese government.
World Israel News explains:
The ammonium nitrate that blew up last week in Beirut was owned by the Hezbollah terror group that intended to use the material in a war against Israel, a top investigative reporter said Friday.
The leader of the Iran-backed terrorist organization, Hassan Nasrallah, is the person at the top responsible for the material having been in Beirut’s port before the massive explosion last week that claimed over 150 lives, wounded 6,000 people and left a large part of the Lebanese capital in ruins, said Channel 13 Arab Affairs reporter Zvi Yehezkeli.
The majority of the Lebanese want to just live their lives in peace, and they are tiring of extremists always wanting war.
