    The explosion does appear very similar.

    the most amazing thing about TD is that we have so many members who are explosives experts that also happen to be epidemiologists.

    I believe the phrase is "No shit Sherlock".

    For further confirmation, see his Twatter feed, although he might have removed the post by now.

    Seismologists measured the event, which blew out windows at the city's international airport nine kilometres (more than five miles) away, as the equivalent of a 3.3-magnitude earthquake.

    Trump's running around telling people 'his generals' told him it was an attack, a bomb. What a f'ing plank.

    The Jooos are dropping hints that it belonged to Hizbollah.

    Then again, they would.

    One official statement, one press report and one tweet report of the killing 4 people:

    Text of a Notice on the Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to Lebanon

    Foreign Policy

    Issued on: July 29, 2020

    "On August 1, 2007, by Executive Order 13441, the President declared a national emergency with respect to Lebanon pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States constituted by the actions of certain persons to undermine Lebanon’s legitimate and democratically elected government or democratic institutions; to contribute to the deliberate breakdown in the rule of law in Lebanon, including through politically motivated violence and intimidation; to reassert Syrian control or contribute to Syrian interference in Lebanon; or to infringe upon or undermine Lebanese sovereignty. Such actions contribute to political and economic instability in that country and the region.

    Certain ongoing activities, such as Iran’s continuing arms transfers to Hizballah — which include increasingly sophisticated weapons systems — serve to undermine Lebanese sovereignty, contribute to political and economic instability in the region, and continue to constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States.

    For this reason, the national emergency declared on August 1, 2007, and the measures adopted on that date to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond August 1, 2020. Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency with respect to Lebanon declared in Executive Order 13441.

    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress.

    DONALD J. TRUMP
    THE WHITE HOUSE,
    July 29, 2020.

    Gantz Instructs IDF to Bomb Lebanese Infrastructure If Hezbollah Harms Soldiers or Civilians

    By Yoni Weiss
    Friday, July 31, 2020 at 5:32 am

    "A senior defense official told Yisrael Hayom that Gantz issued the order to prepare such a response during meetings on Thursday with IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Aviv Kochavi and other members of the general staff.

    Tensions have rapidly escalated between Israel and the terrorist organization since the death of Hezbollah terrorist Ali Kamel Mohsen Jawad, along with two other terrorists, during an airstrike on Damascus International Airport earlier this month.

    Hezbollah has vowed revenge for Jawad’s death, leading the IDF to move reinforcements to the northern border in preparation for an attack by the Shiite terror organization.

    In Thursday’s meetings, Kochavi presented the IDF’s position on the matter, saying Israel must hold Hezbollah and the Lebanese government responsible for any future attack and its consequences.

    According to the defense official, Israel didn’t kill the Hezbollah terrorists who attempted to carry out an attack in the Har Dov area on Monday, and didn’t release footage of the incident, in order to give the terror group a chance to save face and de-escalate the situation, but that Hezbollah was not taking the opportunity.

    “If [Hezbollah] tries perpetrating another attack, we will see an unusual response from the IDF against [the organization] and the country of Lebanon,” the official said."

    An IDF video of 4 people walking in one direction, then running back in the opposite direction, then being hit and the "target" destroyed:

    https://twitter.com/IDF

    "This is the moment when four terrorists attempted to plant explosives near the security fence between #Israel and #Syria last night...

    ...and the moment we stopped them.

    We will continue to defend Israel's borders from all enemy threats."

    The video embedded in the IDF tweet.

    Coincidence or covering ones back?

    Somebody and her children from an apartment close to the port videoing the initial "fireworks, the fast growing fire and then being blown back, away from the window, by the large explosion:

    "In this video, prior the explosion, you could see how the smoke was picking up before the fire and the first explosion #Beirut #Lebanon'

    I could see Jews and the CIA at their HQ scheming for ideas. 2700 tons of fertilizer was an opportunity they couldn't pass on

    I was the biggest conspiracy hater out there. But it's hard to stay that way when they lie like motherfuckers to you about pretty much everything.

    He knows what a map is ? Astonishing.

    Ammonium nitrate can be reactive - itís not necessary to add diesel (to make anfo) to get it to burn or explode.
    Many elements can catalyse reactions.
