Detailed video of fire and explosion in the port of Beirut published

128

A 9-minute detailed video from the port area of ​​Beirut, filmed on a high-resolution camera, which was located on August 4 on one of the high-rise buildings of the Lebanese capital, appeared on the network. The video shows virtually the entire development of events that day in the main port of Lebanon, right up to the explosion.


It is noted that the fire in one of the port hangars occurred at about 17:35, and at 18:20 the most powerful explosion thundered, which destroyed not only the port of the Lebanese capital, but almost a third of all Beirut, depriving almost a third of a million of roofs over their heads. person.

The video begins by showing relatively little smoke in the port area. Then the smoke becomes more intense.










After a few minutes, flashes can be seen at the epicenter of the fire. The smoke itself begins to change color, you can see an open flame. The camera then gives a detailed "picture" of the propagation of the shock wave from the explosion. The footage shows how this wave, as it spreads, destroys buildings and structures that meet in its path. External structures of multi-storey buildings begin to crumble, windows fly out. Eventually the camera crashes.


Meanwhile, the Middle Eastern and American media published data that just a few minutes before the explosion, a fire brigade tried to open the door of a hangar in which ammonium nitrate was stored. It is assumed that the photo, which "VO" cannot publish due to a copyright issue, depicts firefighters who subsequently ended up on the list of missing persons.

        And if it's no joke, that is, safety precautions during hot work! Who does it? Nobody and nowhere. It clearly says that the welder alone has no right to work. There must be people around who watch what is happening around him. He works in a mask and does not physically see what is happening around. And the work must be completed in an hour of basic time. Shifts. For an hour is given to identify smoldering fires. Or people where welding was carried out with extinguishing agents are left for such a duty. What organization is this practiced? Not in any! That is why the ships burn, and not only. He himself put out such a fire. Personally with his own hands.

              This is most likely a wind and microphone problem. When the microphone on the camcorder is not protected by anything, such sounds from the wind occur.

              Pre-explosion sounds are the noise of gusts of wind picked up by the camera microphone. The author of "Smoke" apparently never dealt with external CCTV cameras with an internal microphone.

          Saltpeter was squeezed out by the creditors of a Russian businessman who was taking it to Africa for sale as a result of a raider seizure by valiant Beirut customs officers. After that, the saltpeter, as expected, stuck in the port warehouse because of its criminal status - no one wanted to buy or export it.

          Exactly the same situation now with 10 thousand tons of saltpeter in Odessa and 3 thousand tons in Nikolaev. We are waiting for the Israeli "welders".

      Doesn't look like fireworks. It is exactly like burning saltpeter.
      When burning, pure nitrate releases "excess" oxygen. And in this oxygen, steel structures (for example) will burn and spark like a big sparkler.

    The first and main question is where did this come from:The 9-minute detailed video from the port of Beirut, filmed with a high definition camera, located on August 4 on one of the high-rise buildings in the Lebanese capital. The video shows almost the entire development of events that day. in the main port of Lebanon until the explosion.(C)
    If they were filmed, it means that someone knew when, where and what to shoot.
    Unwillingly, you will believe in a worldwide conspiracy. Eeeeeeee, enansy game !!! Trrr ...

      Of course they knew. There, at the very beginning of the video, there is such powerful smoke and a lot of pops. Apparently the Jews instructed - if you see a bunch of claps and smoke - just take it off so that everyone will think of us. For example, if I saw a strong fire, I would never have thought that it could be filmed. Only if the Jews were instructed in advance, maybe I would have removed it.

    The most interesting thing is that such a disaster, exactly like this one, is described in the science fiction novel by Andre Norton, though I don't remember the name now, the continuation of the adventures of supercargo Dan Thomson on the spaceship Queen of the Sun, it seems.
    There, too, ammonia silicate explodes and destroys the entire city on some planet there. Thousands died, the whole city was destroyed. But the heroes try to prevent the catastrophe in advance, but do not have time. It seems the Emergency Planet is called.

      1. There are no large ammonium nitrate warehouses in Haif.
      2. In Haifa there were containers with ammonia, but it was not BB.
      3. Not mine:

      Igor Grechushkin bought the Rosus vessel in Cyprus for 300 Euro.
      For reference, the exact same ship written off for scrap costs 350. That is, Igor bought a ship cheaper than scrap metal.
      The technical condition was just that - scrap metal. This ship would never have made it to Mozambique, where the official buyer of saltpeter lives. Water from the hold was continuously pumped out by constantly switched on pumps. And so they sailed.
      The maximum where this ship could sail is to Beirut, where it sailed.
      One-time vessel for one voyage and one-time crew.
      And a disposable ship owner. Neither before this voyage, nor after it, Igor Grechushkin was not engaged in ship transportation and was a complete layman in this matter. Here is such a short episode of his business biography - a ship owner for several months.
      Now you are wondering why Mozambique demanded the cargo "arrested" in Beirut, for one transportation of which it paid a million? ... Why did the Lebanese authorities keep this fertilizer in a warehouse for many years, instead of letting it go to its destination, as an unclaimed cargo? ...
      And I will ask counter questions. Are you sure that this very Mozambique is generally aware that he bought something there? Are you sure that this "seized cargo" remained unclaimed?
      Maybe this cargo originally had such a purpose, to be arrested in Lebanon and not go anywhere further?
      Everyone knows that self-made Kassam rockets fly on nitrate fuel. Therefore, the formalized delivery of three thousand tons of nitrate to a buyer in Lebanon would definitely come under close scrutiny and control on the part of any specific international organizations.
      Quite another matter "I had to confiscate ... what to do ... here it lies ... guarded ... does not go anywhere." And surely it doesn't go anywhere?
      Who knows how much of this "fertilizer" was left in the warehouse at the port at the time of the explosion, and how much was put into operation ...
      Why at the port? Because my intuition tells me that if this saltpeter were stockpiled somewhere in the countryside, Israeli missiles would find it within XNUMX hours ... A port in the middle of a residential city is another matter. Even the Israeli military does not bomb such objects in peacetime.
      Here is a look at the events from sunny Cyprus.
      UPD: They say that Igor Grechishnikov, whom all the special services are now looking for all over the world, contacted the Russian Embassy in Nicosia through his lawyers. "

                        Hezbollah has clearly suffered a reputation loss. Did Israel win? It is difficult to say, since a certain part of the people will still blame Israel for the explosion, regardless of any evidence. That is, Israel also suffers certain reputational losses.

        The air raid siren sounded in the cities of northern Israel - Hadera, Haifa, Zichron Ya'akov and Yokneam. Thus, Hamas continues to fire rocket attacks on Israeli territories far from Gaza. There are no casualties. The rocket fell on a vacant lot in Megiddo, where the Hamas missiles from Gaza have not yet reached. And this is about 160 km.

    While considering three versions.
    And the version of sabotage is one of them.
    And the interested parties, if we consider the option of sabotage, can be very many, both inside Lebanon and outside it.
    Such an event can lead to different scenarios for the development of events.
    Including the civil war.
    Lebanon has a difficult political and economic situation.
    This disaster could be the catalyst.

      [quote = Livonetc] Three versions are currently under consideration. [/ quote]
      Here are the facts for one of the versions
      Igor Grechushkin bought the ship Rosus Cyprus [/ Quote]
      In 2014, it was arrested in Beirut.
      1. A year later, in 2015, the Cypriot police discovered 8,3 tons of ammonium nitrate, which, according to the Cypriot special services, was intended for a terrorist attack prepared by Hezbollah militants.
      In connection with the discovery of ammonium nitrate, a Lebanese citizen, Hussein Basam Abdullah, associated with Hezbollah, was arrested and found guilty of illegal storage of explosives and participation in terrorist activities. Abdallah was sentenced by the court to six years in prison.
      2. And Grechishin abandoned the ship, the business and settled the same Cyprus
      At the request of Lebanon, he is wanted by Interpol.
      And in Lebanon there is an organization subordinate to Hezbalah, Majdal Shams, they tried several times to legally obtain permission to buy ammonium nitrate, but each time the court, for some reason, refused.
      3. The director of the port of Beirut is married to Nasrali's sister.
      4. Hezbollah was caught storing ammonium nitrate outside Lebanon. In 2015, British intelligence found four gunmen in London with three tons of ammonium nitrate in sacks of flour.
      5. In Germany, members of the militants were caught with enough substance to "blow up an entire city." Consequently, Germany has declared Hezbollah a terrorist organization.
      6. This is what Nasrallah intended to do in Europe. As for what was stored in the port of Beirut, according to preliminary estimates, Nasrallah intended to use it in the "Third Lebanese War"
      7 Ammonium nitrate was kept open in the warehouse, and when they saw that it was getting smaller, they decided to weld the door.
      On Friday, August 7, speaking on the air of the Al-Manar TV channel, Hassan Nasrallah commented on the explosion in the port of Beirut, and said that he did not know what exactly was happening in the port of Beirut. (Would you believe it?) "We refute rumors that Hezbollah is controlling the port in Beirut. We know the Haifa port much better".
      The last sentence contains the whole problem of the people of Lebanon.

        Ammonium nitrate is a product available all over the place.
        It is inexpedient to carry out the logistics of nitrate stored in Lebanon to London or Germany.
        Easier to purchase locally.
        The question of faith (believe it or not) is not relevant.
        We need a real evidence base.
        For example, the special services of the Russian Federation made us happy with the prompt clarification of the situation with the movement of citizens of the Russian Federation to the Republic of Belarus.
        Although in international politics in the current century, evidence does not have much value.
        You can drag a balloon with a poisonous substance into an apartment, put it on a bed and declare that it was dropped from a military aircraft belonging to government forces.
        And the entire Western-loving community will cry out in unison about war crimes involving chemical weapons.
        We are well aware of this.
        One leading islander coined a wonderful term.
        Hiley Likely.
        I understand your interest.
        It is likely that Mzrail will be blamed for what happened, manipulating the facts.
        Well then blame the allies.
        It was they who opened the pandorra's box and massively use the method of manipulation and fraud in the world.

            Ammonium nitrate is a non-criminal fertilizer, so even without some components it is not dangerous, especially after being stored for 6 years, it partially lost its properties, there was something initiating how to drink to undermine it, except that the first fire somehow influenced, but it was a little aside, there are more questions than answers.

              Of course, this is already a fertilizer that, when simple substances such as diesel fuel or aluminum powder, or improper storage are added, turns into a strong explosive.
              In its pure form, ammonium nitrate is significantly inferior to most explosives in terms of explosion energy, but its explosiveness must be taken into account during transportation and storage. The explosiveness of nitrate increases with the growth of its humidity and temperature changesleading to recrystallization and under the conditions that described welding + firecrackers + ammonium nitrate led to such a tragedy.

    The authorities are to blame in any case, whoever sets it on fire. To store this d-d-d-business in a busy port, next to residential buildings ... Not one day, and not even one year.

    The video is depressing. This is how you sit at work, in the industrial zone, you see smoke somewhere in the warehouses and you don’t know whether it’s a trash can, or the fire is approaching thousands of tons of saltpeter.

      the government of Lebanon, how to say it, does not control Lebanon at all.
      in Lebanon there are other forces that are at the helm, those who doubted it were shown the way to a different world.
      therefore, if Hizbalah said that saltpeter would lie, then she will do it.

    It’s somehow strange for an empirical country ... The port warehouses (which bring most of the country's profits) are not equipped with special rooms for storing explosive goods and an automatic fire-prevention system, there were no fire boats in the port ...
    The storage place for ammonium nitrate was in the center of the port at the berth line ....
    The port administration, of course, will not receive a penny from insurance companies now, but it will receive a bunch of lawsuits from affected individuals and legal entities, mostly foreign ... the port will save only if it hired a company that is responsible for the port economy and fire safety .. ...

    Everything would be fine. But ammonium nitrate will not ignite from sparks. Tested by experience. I already wrote yesterday. As a teenager, my comrades and I kindled a huge fire from old car tires and threw a bag of saltpeter into the fire. The saltpeter in the bag just melted into a lump. The next day, one kid started shouting that it was not saltpeter at all, stuck an ordinary gun primer into the fused piece and hit the primer. It turned out that this is really saltpeter. The kid's limbs were torn off. Someone in Beirut inserted a capsule into the saltpeter.

    The question is, what did the high-definition camera do on the roof of the building? What did you shoot? Precisely on the day of the explosion?
    As far as I can understand, no beautiful species are observed ...

    1. There are no large ammonium nitrate warehouses in Haif.
    2. In Haifa there were containers with ammonia, but it was not BB.

    Quote: ul_vitalii
    Carelessness, snatched the "pie", and what to do with it did not decide. Time has done its job.

    If someone blew up the ammonia containers, there would be more corpses than in Beirut. By the way, army gas masks do not protect against ammonia.
