An explosion of huge force in the capital of Lebanon hit the frame

The network is discussing footage of a terrible explosion that today shook the Lebanese capital Beirut. It happened in the port of the city.

The footage shows how first a column of gray smoke appears, after which an explosion of enormous force is heard.

The blast wave from it blows a lot hundreds of meters from the epicenter.

In this case, at the first stage of the explosion, red-orange "tongues" are visible. An explosion literally turns a building in the immediate vicinity into dust.






Above the port, a white-gray explosion mushroom was visible.

Filming after the explosion captured the port area of ​​Beirut, which has been reduced to rubble. Debris of structures, metal and concrete fragments are visible on the streets of the city. The frames show buildings, from which only reinforced concrete skeletons remained.



Fire brigades, ambulance brigades and rescuers are drawn to the scene. At the moment, there is no exact information about the cause of such a powerful explosion, or the number of victims. At the same time, Lebanese Minister of Health Hamad Hassan said that as a result of the explosion, hundreds of people were injured, including serious ones. However, it can be assumed that with such a force of the explosion, unfortunately, it was not without casualties.

      With such a force of the explosion, with such destruction, when the buildings were literally "blown away" and the ceilings collapsed, unfortunately there will be many, very many victims.

                        Everything is clear with you. According to your detonation is impossible, as such. With what hangover back in the Russian-Japanese war, from a successful hit of just one shell in the area of ​​the ship's artillery cellars, detonated the entire ammunition rack and even at the same time tore off the gun turrets? This has always been considered a great success. And they didn’t hit every single shell of the cellar, as you are trying to imagine. Detonated all at once.

                        And there is gunpowder in caps / checkers, but not in casings, and in a confined space, the gunpowder does not detonate, it burns quickly, giving gas, which pushes the projectile out of the barrel, it can demolish the tower if the whole cellar is on fire at once. The burnout of the ammo rack in a tank with 10-meter torches is similar.

                    If a fire is triggered in a confined space, the ammunition will detonate sooner or later. And they have nowhere to fly around, so they will detonate a lot, demolish the building and scatter the remains around the neighborhood.

                In the case of aerial bombs, they simply do not have a fuse, they will be installed when suspended on a carrier, and military explosives are very resistant to detonation for safety reasons. After the shelling of Khmeinim with a message. about the defeat of the bomb depot there was a discussion in the BMPD blog about this, they recalled that even during the Great Patriotic War it was noted that hitting bomb piles at airfields only leads to their scatter.

      On "Russia-24" they gave a creeping line about the detonation of sodium nitrate. A version from an imbecile expert?
      Sodium nitrate does not detonate in principle. Even if mixed with fuel: diesel fuel, flour, etc. The video clearly shows the propagation of a shock wave - a clear sign of detonation. But ammonium nitrate - he could bang.
      In 1921, at a chemical plant in Oppau in Germany, 12 thousand tons of a mixture of ammonium sulfate and nitrate exploded, the energy of the explosion was estimated at 4-5 kilotons of TNT equivalent.
      In Oppau, out of 1000 buildings, 800 were destroyed, and 7500 people were left homeless. The explosion destroyed the nearby villages of Frankenthal and Edigheim. Trains standing at nearby stations were thrown off the tracks, and within a radius of 70 km, including the cities of Ludwigshafen and Mannheim, windows were shattered in all buildings, the sound of an explosion was heard in Munich, located 300 km away.

    Yes, here without any expertise it is clear that the ammunition depot caught fire and exploded.
    The reason is that the truth can no longer be found. Israel, of course, would say - it caught fire itself, the Lebanese - that an act of terrorism by Israel.
    The force of the explosion is about the same as from the Russian ODAB, judging by the cloud. So, fifty tons exploded.
    ODAB has a guaranteed radius of 300 meters, but the area just defeat is 20 times more than guaranteed.
    There will be many victims in the city center. In vain they arranged a warehouse in such a place.

          The version about pyrotechnics has a plus: the video of the fire before the explosion is very similar to the burning of small firecrackers. There are also disadvantages: a) the burning of a warehouse with cartridges looks the same; b) where is the large pyrotechnic warehouse in Beirut (?) - I don't remember that the culture of the Arabs and other peoples of the region had a great love for peaceful amusement pyrotechnic amusements. These are not Chinese. Moreover, during the explosion of pyrotechnics, the scattering burning lights will be at least slightly visible. After all, not until the last gram, it will detonate. Pyrotechnics are in small packaging: shells for bombs and missiles. At least a part should just ignite and scatter with the main explosion. In addition, pyrotechnic mixtures contain a lot of metal salts for coloring flashes in different colors. This should also manifest itself in a flash somehow.

      ODAB has a guaranteed hit radius of 300 meters, but the area of ​​damage is 20 times larger than the guaranteed one.
      It is always necessary to clarify which ODAB. And then there is a whole nomenclature of them. The same "Bumblebee" also has a volume-detonating charge. And a rocket from TOS Buratino.

      It appears differently. Namely, the so-called Prandl-Glauert effect. A sharp drop in pressure following a shock wave, due to which moisture in the air condenses (dew point shifts). Steam it. It can be seen that the explosion is precisely inside this white cloud-ball, which immediately disappeared to where.

    Maybe instead of talking nonsense about terrorist attacks and attacks on Jews, you start reading the news? "DOHA, Aug 5 - RIA Novosti. Lebanese Prime Minister Hassan Diyab named the cause of the explosion in the port of Beirut, which killed more than 70 people, improper storage of 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate for six years, according to the message of the Office of the President of Lebanon on a social network. Twitter. "

      Now this is more like the truth. And in terms of power and type of explosion. In general, most often during explosive explosions, the subsequent smoke cloud is either black or white. It depends on the ratio of explosive components: lack or excess of the oxidizing agent in the mixture. If the oxidizing agent is insufficient for a 100% reaction, then the smoky cloud is dark. For example, an explosion of oil products, black powder, etc. If there is enough or excess oxidant, the cloud will be white.
      in this case, the cloud is white. Which is very similar to saltpeter, which contains just a lot of oxygen to sustain and develop an explosion.

    Online media note that the residence of the former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri is located near the port. The building suffered damage, but it was not damaged.


    According to the Al-Mayadin TV channel, hundreds of people were injured in the explosion. A long line of ambulances has formed in the port area.

    The Al-Arabiya TV channel reports that the blast has broken glass in buildings in the port area and in the city center. Dozens of residential and office buildings and cars were damaged. Wounded people from all over the city are admitted to hospitals.

    The explosion caused power outages in various quarters of the Lebanese capital.

    The health minister said the blast had affected "a huge number of people."

Sources of the LBCI TV channel report that this is a cargo of sodium nitrate (salt of nitric acid), which was confiscated from one of the ships more than a year ago and was stored in a warehouse in the port.

      ODB usually produces white smoke after an explosion. Here the effect was just such, most likely due to the high humidity, after all, the port is after all.

        As the main explosion, for sure. To do this, you need to gut all the pyrotechnics and collect the explosive composition in a heap. And it is not clear who and why will store so many pyrotechnics in Beirut. The region is not the biggest fan and consumer of peaceful entertainment pyrotechnics. Moreover, a turbulent region.
        It is possible that pyrotechnics were burning there as an accompanying component of the explosion. Still the port, warehouses. There could be a lot of things in the neighborhood.

    The explosion in the port of Beirut damaged the building of the diplomatic mission of Kazakhstan.

    The press service of the Kazakh Foreign Ministry reported that the consul received minor injuries.

    A representative of the Russian diplomatic mission told the agency that an employee of the embassy was wounded by the glass blown out by the blast wave. According to him, the woman "just got hurt."

    Meanwhile in Jerusalem:
    "Kan Bet" radio station reported that Israel offered its help to Lebanon.

    The proposal was passed on to the Lebanese government through international intermediaries. This is primarily about humanitarian and medical assistance.

    Defense Minister Benny Gantz and Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi were the initiators of the offer of aid to the state with which Israel has no diplomatic relations, according to the Kan Corporation news service.
    This is how he is - the Israeli aggressor.

    As a result of a powerful explosion that thundered on Tuesday in the port of Beirut, Nazar Najaryan, leader of the Lebanese Phalangist Kataeb party, was killed. It is reported by CNN with reference to the state news agency NNA. The politician was in his office when the explosion occurred and was seriously injured, incompatible with life.
    The Lebanese Falangist Kataib Party is a right-wing nationalist political force that opposes the regime of Bashar al-Assad. Najarian was also an opponent of Hezbollah.

        Saltpeter, although it is part of black powder, is not close in terms of heat capacity and power, plus it needs a detonator, and better, a simultaneous rise in temperature over the entire area and preferably increased humidity for the reaction

    Video by Sheetal Pratap Singh
    @SheetalPratapS clearly visible sequence: A sultan of white smoke a hundred meters high, while the burning was going on, everyone turned on their sotikas and began shooting. Then there was a red flash, and then there was a volumetric explosion. But ... distance and foreshortening ...... at Marabin Oli it is clearly visible that at the base of the white cap of smoke, there is a focus of red burning and a mass of "magnesium" flares-stars before a large red flash.
    Thus: Combustion took place in a warehouse where several types of explosives were stored, possibly a pressurized gas tank (although, such does not exist). An explosion of this magnitude requires a huge amount of explosives. But the simultaneous explosion of 10 OV ammunition is doubtful, I think the picture would be different.
    Perhaps sabotage, possibly a violation of the rules for storing explosives, and maybe a violation of the technology for working with explosives.
