Lebanon’s capital, Beirut, was hit by two powerful explosions and killed at least 10 people.
Terrible explosions can be seen in many photos and shots. The ship allegedly exploded full of pyrotechnics.
Many buildings and houses, including embassies, the Government building, as well as the residence of Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri, were damaged.
The explosions were felt at a distance of 10 kilometers. The first explosion was smaller, and then followed the detonation of the second, much stronger, after which a cloud with soot in the form of a mushroom appeared in the air.
My thoughts and prayers to all those affected. 💔🙏
That explosion in #Beirut is one of the most horrifying things I’ve ever seen. 😔
