Beirut

A video of the massive bomb blast on Tuesday in Lebanon’s capital Beirut remains the center of discussion. In it, a young woman is seen posing for the cameraman for the wedding video. The young woman smiled and smiled as soon as she was ready for the next pose when the shock web of the explosion caused everything around to turn. The place which was decorated for marriage a short time ago, started to look like a desolate place in an instant.

The girl helped the injured

Reportedly, US-based doctor Irala Ceballani arrived in Beirut three weeks ago to prepare for her wedding. But this blast destroyed one of the most important moments of his life. After the blast, Irala Ceballani also provided medical aid to the injured people nearby.

Bang changed everything

She said that I had been preparing for my marriage for the last two weeks. Like other girls, I was very happy about my marriage. I felt that my parents would be very happy to see me in a white dress. But the explosion changed everything.

No words to explain the bang

Sebalani said that I do not have the words to explain what happened during the blast. I was shocked. I thought what happened, am I going to die? How can I die now? During the blast, the ground on which she was lying there were scarecrows torn from the windows of the hotel, crushed pieces of flowers and clothes scattered here and there.

Atomic bombings

Horrific blasts occurred near the Port area on Wednesday afternoon in Beirut. These explosions were so terrible that a nuclear bomb exploded. The land was also shivering due to the explosion and there was a severe earthquake. The videos that have come out of this horrific accident are heart wrenching. First a high plume of pink smoke spread throughout the sky and then a devastating explosion took place. The blast took the route he had taken. According to the reports, houses at least 10 km away have suffered heavy damage.
Zombies were everywhere, people were running ill

After the blast at the port, corpses appeared on the ground everywhere. After the incident, the disgraced people were running on the streets screaming. If someone was injured and fell soaked in blood, someone was busy handling others. Entire balconies were uprooted from the surrounding buildings. Skyscrapers fell to the ground. A large number of people are also expected to be buried under these buildings. Immediately after the accident, ambulances rushed to take people to the hospital and firefighters started to extinguish the fire in place. An eyewitness says that the catastrophe was as if the doom had arrived.
Hospital filled, President called emergency meeting

For the first time in many years, when such a terrible incident happened, Lebanese President Michael Aoun called a meeting of the Supreme Defense Council. The country’s Health Minister Hamad Hasan has said that 73 people have died so far, but the number of people who died can increase significantly. Hasan has reported that the city of Beirut has also suffered extensive damage. The explosion filled the hospitals in Beirut. The condition turned out to be that many of the injured were treated inside the corridor. Lebanon’s Red Cross has appealed to people to go to the hospital only when it is very important.
Explosion in 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate

The National Council for Scientific Research said the massive explosion was caused by ammonium nitrate, which was stored inside a warehouse. It is being told that 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate had been kept inside the warehouse for 6 years. It was to be used to make manure. Lebanese President Michael Aoun wrote on Twitter that stern action would be taken against those possessing 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate without security arrangements. Those killed in the blast include Nizar Nazarian, general secretary of the Katib party. The headquarters of Nizar’s party were right in front of the port of Beirut.

Sableani’s husband said – Manjar cannot say

Sabalani’s husband Ahmed Subbeh said that after the blast, we started walking around and taking stock of the situation. The sound of this explosion cannot be described. Whatever happened in Beirut is very sad.
