Just in times as zionist pressure over Lebanon to isolate Hezbollah.
Could be another zionist “accident”…

If only : it’d be the first time ridiculous wrongful accusations would be true!
Zionists should make even more than what conspiracy idiot fanboys accuse them of, then mark my words, these wouldn’t even dare to badmouth Israel by fear of ending leaning to swim with concrete boots.
It reminds me when Hezbully used a mixture of ammonium nitrate and fuel to blow the French and US Blue Helmet peace-keepers barracks in Beirut, murdering more than 300… Last time the US accepted any UN peace-keeping mission, now they just do war.

One really must be dumb to store such a quantity of ammonium nitrate in an urban area. Such an amount has an TNT-equivalent power of 1.2 kiloton, like a small tactical nuke (hopefully without radioactivity). Heavy blast radius (20psi: heavily built concrete buildings are severely damaged or demolished; fatalities approach 100%) : 230m, Moderate blast damage radius (5 psi): 490m. At 5 psi overpressure, most residential buildings collapse, injuries are universal, fatalities are widespread. Light blast damage radius (1 psi): 1.25km; At a around 1 psi overpressure, glass windows can be expected to break. This can cause many injuries in… Read more »
