  • We'll be keeping our eyes and ears open for updates as they come in. I wanted to include this in today's show, but ISworlds usually suppresses the whole show, so this is usually the only workaround that makes sure we get the news to as many people as possible.

    • 🇱🇧First of all I'am from Lebanon and I wached this shit from my house🇱🇧The only suspect is Israel. It was just a fire. The fire team went to put out the fire, and then we heard the sound of warfare. Rather, we saw the warplane throw the missile at the port. Then the port exploded and the white smoke from the first explosion appeared, then we heard another flying sound, and then the giant explosion occur.

  • Rants of a Lebanese citizen. I’m Lebanese and I just want to say that honestly if you just want to pitch a director a film about the events that have been going on for the past 30 years in Lebanon. They will tell you to tone it down because it’s not believable to audience. It’s a month and 10 days now and we still don’t have any answers, the casualties sum up to 200 died ,7,000 injured with 2,500 critical cases, 300,000 people homeless, and half of Beirut wipes out or inhabitable. I’m with the Red Cross and we and the civil defense and the firefighters along with multiple NGO’s and diaspora have been working day and night to help this city to stand up again, but most of the supplies have been either stolen or denied access. However if it wasn’t for the people of Lebanon the civilians that went down to the destroyed area and took brooms and shovels and started to clean up the area from the rubble and glass and give help to injured people wether it be taking them to hospitals or giving them water and food or even going up to their houses to remove the rubble off of their family members or their houses, nothing but all the gratitude can be given to the people of my country that helped each other in the time of Need. People from across the country Far East to far south all came together to help alleviate the pain and misery that the capital was going through. All this while the government didn’t lift a finger to help or even acknowledge that the blast was their fault. People are starving and the prices of food and everything is hyper inflated due to the port being out of Commission. The monetary value of our currency is decreasing in a very fast way that it’s now 8x less valued then when the economic crisis started back in November last year. This country used to be the Paris of the East, the mountains and the valleys the beach and the snow. We had it all and tourism was our main income as a country. We have one of the world wonders in Jeita grotto. It’s so sad seeing what this country has become, and honestly if I could leave to anywhere and take my family I would, but my health doesn’t allow for it. Thank you for listening. If you would like to see a video summarizing the event and has footage of everything explained in English go to @ExploRob ISworlds channel and check it out.

  • CRÍMENES Y GENOCIDIOS SERIALES ADUCIENDO QUE DIOS LES ORDENÓ COMBATIRLAS Y DESTRUIRLAS NO DEJANDO PIEDRA SOBRE PIEDRA, APODERÁNDOSE DE SUS RIQUEZAS Y ESCLAVIZANDO O EXTERMINANDO A SUS POBLADORES (Deuteronomio Segundas Tablas): La foto que prueba que la explosión del 4 de agosto de 2020, que destruyó el Puerto de Beirut no fue un accidente sino que Israel atacó con misiles, fue tomada el 27 de septiembre de 2018 en la comparecencia de Netanyahu ante el Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU, en donde ante los medios señaló en una foto del puerto, los blancos a destruir con misiles crucero armados con ojivas tácticas porque supuestamente Hezbollah almacenaba allí armamento; lo que pretendía el bombardeo era aprovechar la explosión como detonante de las 2750 toneladas de nitrato de amonio que permanecían almacenadas en el puerto y así aumentar la potencia destructiva de la explosión. Este atentado criminal, es parte de una lista interminable de múltiples atentados cometidos impunemente aún contra sus propios aliados, como el atentado terrorista al Hotel Rey David en Jerusalén el 22/06/1946, sede de la comandancia militar británica, asesinato de John F, Kennedy 22/11/63 el ataque al barco espía U,S, LIBERTY durante la batalla de las alturas del Golán, el atentado terrorista del 9/11 que derrumbó. las Torres Gemelas del Word Trade Center; y los constantes ataque a los países vecinos para apoderarse de sus territorios y llegar a ser EL GRAN ISRAEL; como la limpieza étnica y robo del territorio del pueblo palestino aduciendo auto defensa, las guerras contra Líbano, Irak, Irán, Siria, Yemen; y los genocidios de los pueblos de Rusia Zarista, los genocidios del pueblo alemán durante la segunda guerra mundial y la rapiña y sometimiento de los pueblos del este de Europa durante el imperio Soviético; y la actual abrogación sutil de la soberanía de los EEUU, convirtiéndolo en una colonia de Israel saqueada intensamente.

  • I was not ready for this Phil. Even with your warning. That footage, I thought the explosion was what was already being shown, the smoke and flames. I didn't know it hadn't happened yet. So when it did, I may have screamed a little IRL. Not even after countless movies and games was I prepared for that. That was fucking terrifying! Nightmarish to see an explosion that big actually happen in the real world. My first thought was that someone launched a missle and forgot to open the silo doors. That is not the kind of damage you expect to come from an accident. I don't want to make it sound like a competition, but even terrorists with intent and proper explosives don't tend to come close to that kind of power in an explosion. This is gonna affect me for a while.

  • The explosion was caused by the combustion of 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate stored in a warehouse at Beirut port . The explosion leveled buildings and shattered glass on a 15 km (s) radius causing a seismic wave with magnitude of 4.5 leaving 200,000+ people homeless , injuring almost 5000 people and reaching a kill count of 137 people dead and 80 + people missing . The force of the blast is the equivalent of 3.3 kilotons of TNT . Also leaving behind a material loss of 5 + billion dollars. But thank you for shining the light on this tragic incident. I was in Beirut when the blast happened but thank god i’m untouched. But thanks a lot for shining the light on this tragic incident and lots of love from Lebanon 🇱🇧.

  • Hello, lebanese here who witnessed the explosion, to update this news: The explosion was caused by 2700 tons of stored ammonium nitrate, which was supposedly confiscated by a ship "Rhosus" in 2014 who was passing by the port. It was illegally kept with knowledge from the port's president and the minister of customs in our government. This was from 2014... due to corruption and greed of the port's authority and lebanese government to auction these highly dangerous items off, they felt it was perfectly fine storing 2700 tons of explosive substance in the middle of a dense community. This is a result of negligence and horrible people in office. What started the fire that caused this substance to trigger is still in question.

  • There are apparently a lot of people in the comments sections all over youtube who are horribly misconstrued as to the whos, what's, when's, and whys of what happened. Sorry ahead of time becuase this might be a little lengthy. I am a formally trained combat engineer of the United States Marine Corps, A large avenue of my military occupational specialty revolves around explosives and explosive sciences. It sounds more complicated than it is. What happened in Lebanon started with, of course, a fire. This fire then spread and engulfed an apparent fireworks factory that turned into a major blaze. In very close proximity to this blaze was a stockpile of ammonium nitrate. Ammonium nitrate is primarily used as a commercial grade fertilizer all around the world. Billions of metric tons of it are produce and used every year. It is also used in explosives. That is NOT to say that Ammonium nitrate itself is an explosive, because it is not. Ammonium nitrate ***BY ITSELF*** doesn't burn very well and WILL NOT EXPLODE. What Ammonium Nitrate is is an oxidizer. What oxidizers do is force feed oxygen into a combustion reaction accelerating the combustion process. All forms of combustion require heat oxygen and fuel. Any portion of any given fuel typ has a finite amount of energy in it, what an oxidizer does is help release that energy faster in a shorter period of time. For example take gasoline, when you burn it in a combustion engine it creates horsepower, when you add an oxidizer in this case nitrous oxide aka NOS you can burn that fuel even faster creating even more horsepower. What the Ammonium nitrate did in Beirut was allow the fireworks fire and any other nearby fuel sources that were also on fire, to release all their energy almost instantly which is what resulted in that humongous explosion. So the lessen here is don't store your oxidizers next to your fuel sources
