Late on Tuesday, a powerful explosion took place at the port of Beirut, killing at least 154 people and injuring about 5,000, per the latest estimates.

Turkey is ready to help rebuild the port of Beirut, which has been destroyed by a massive blast, Turkish Vice-President Fuat Oktay said.

Turkey’s port of Mersin, on the Mediterranean, is ready to assist the port of Beirut, he added.

Beirut was severely hit by the massive explosion late on 4 August, with over 150 people killed and some 5,000 others injured, according to the latest data provided by the country’s Health Ministry.

According to the Lebanese authorities, the blast was linked to improper storage of 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate.

Many countries and international organizations have offered assistance to Lebanon in the wake of the tragedy.

Turkey would sure like to rebuild and take over Beirut habour – provided the EU is willing to pay all expenses. LOL.
