Many Syrians among the dead in the port of Beirut

It is not yet possible to establish the final number of those killed and missing during the explosion in the port of Beirut, among the missing are many workers with foreign citizenship. This was announced by the Governor of Beirut, Marouane Abboud.


The authorities are working hard to locate all the missing and killed in the blast, but the task is complicated by the fact that in Lebanon no one can identify the missing foreigners, many of whom have worked as truck drivers and port workers. According to the governor, many Syrians and citizens of other countries worked in the port, but it is impossible to determine the exact number of them, since half of them did not have any documents as such.

At the same time, the Syrian Foreign Ministry claims that at least 45 of those killed in the explosion in the port of Beirut were Syrian citizens.

For our part, we note that most likely, the Syrians and other foreigners were ordinary guest workers who entered Lebanese territory in various ways and got a job in the port without documents. It is this circumstance that complicates the final determination of the exact number of missing persons for the Beirut authorities.

According to the latest data provided by the Lebanese Ministry of Health, the explosion in the port killed 158 people, and dozens are still missing. More than 6 thousand people have applied to medical institutions with various wounds and injuries, over 100 victims are in hospitals, many of whom are in serious condition.

Clearing of debris continues in the port, under which people may still be.

Recall that on August 4, at about 18:00, a powerful explosion took place in the port of Beirut. According to the official version, about 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate (ammonium nitrate), which had been stored in a warehouse in the port for six years, exploded.

          Absolutely all the victims and injured people - residents and non-residents - are a pity in Beirut! Relatives will definitely not forget this. This human pain will remain with them for the rest of their lives.

    The Turks, of course, are great with their proposal, but I will express the opinion that in this case the whole world needs to help. And now, during the rescue operation, and then, so that at least the infrastructure began to be restored, food supplies were replenished, people received a roof over their heads.
    With the world on a string!

      Lebanon is the world's largest drug producer and the main international transshipment center for cocaine and heroin to Europe.
      Gaster on the plantations and in drug trafficking.
      The whole country lives with only one thing - tourism for Arabs (prostitution), drug production and drug trafficking.

        Alexander hi Why are you talking such sedition! Now "recharge" lol Nick Mikhan will tell everyone about the fraternal Lebanese people. laughing
        In general, it exploded very strongly. It is a pity for ordinary people. There, after all, in the area and in the commercial port itself, in the adjacent areas, a lot of people were injured. Naturally, first of all, there were a lot of workers. One shock wave was worth nothing. And glass and other fragments.

    Out of the frying pan into the fire. They were looking for a better life, but fate decided in its own way.

    There is another opinion. Slave trade and organ trafficking. There is a lot of this shit now in Syria. This is a global issue (although it is silent everywhere), not a regional one. They could have tried to cover their tracks. There now, if you believe, separate areas are cordoned off like military bases - you will not approach. No one is allowed.

      What nonsense? Have you seen real estate prices in Beirut? Have you seen the list of owners of this property? Beirut is an offshore nature reserve. Yes, there is anything in Lebanon. Some of these excellent businesses are controlled by Hezbollah. But not in Beirut!
