    1. Not even close. A large mushroom cloud with a shockwave was seen in the Beirut explosion signifying military-grade munitions. The Enschede fireworks was just that..fireworks could be seen igniting in multiple directions while Beirut explosion had a large blast upward into a mushroom cloud.

  1. That nation has been at war for decades. It has heated up this year as the pandemic squeezed supply lines.

  2. This beautiful Country, Beirut used to be call the Paris of the Middle East, is totally falling apart , they are on the brink of total bankruptcy.

    1. There was fireworks in the beginning saw a video where you hear them and then not long after the big boom

  3. Bomb Making comes with risk…
    Fireworks? Right, a couple 4 yr olds
    Question is… Radiation?
    Question 2… Iran?

  4. I saw three phone videos of the actual explosion. All were takes from many miles away, and in two of them the force of the blast either knocked the camera people down or knocked the camera out of their hands. That’s a massive explostion.

  5. There was a fire before the explosion. Maybe fertilizer plant mixed with fireworks and caused a small nuke explosion? Somethings fishy…..

  6. My heart and prayers go out to the people of Lebanon. This is a tragic event that I seriously doubt is due 100% to fireworks malfunctioning. #PrayingForLebanon

  7. This is what happens when the Americans withdraw militarily from the middle east and now my country(Germany) prematurely… Der Hexen Kessel The Witches Cauldron

  8. better watch out, donnie may be looking for an excuse!
    look like the whole was on fire, big fireworks factory!

  9. Similar explosion a couple years back on Chinese docks – from putting the WRONG CHEMICALS TOO CLOSE to one another. *Don’t jump to conclusions, Folks!*
