      Fuel, oils and rubber emit toxic substances during combustion. So those who live there in the vicinity will have a hard time.

    the cause of the fire has not yet been established.

    What about saltpeter, what about fuels and lubricants, especially carefully and carefully it was necessary to follow the rules of storage and explosion and fire safety, which, apparently, is supposed to be done in this port with the device.

      One fire is not enough. After the emergency, we all have been following the string for a year. And the Arabs don't care.

        Well, yes, as soon as an audit is scheduled, the warehouse burns down at night (this is already a classic), and the gouges and nesses are to blame.

    In recent years, there have been many developments in the world suitable for use in the most sophisticated conspiracy theories. And I am extremely disappointed by the fact that conspiracy theories are not heard or visible on these events. Even though you take it yourself - and invent it, in fact.

    On January 8, 2020, the Israeli Ministry of Defense released information on significant progress in the creation of a laser missile defense system. The laser system is designed to intercept not only conventional and ballistic missiles, but also anti-tank shells and UAVs. The main advantage of the new system is its high efficiency and low cost of each interception with a laser. For the system to work, there is no need for "consumables" and their production. The interception cost will be several dollars. Tests of the system, which was born in the laboratories of the defense concerns Rafael and Elbit Systems, are being carried out. At the end of 2020, it will be installed on the border with the Gaza Strip to test it in combat conditions. The Department of Defense Research and Development under the Ministry of Defense notes that the new system may possibly be used as an offensive weapon in the future.

    On February 5, 2020, the Israeli TV channel Kan-11 reported on the testing of a new laser installation Blade of Light, designed to destroy explosive devices attached by terrorists to balloons in the air. The installation is designed for the MAGAV divisions and the Gaza division. According to Kan-11, over the past 3 weeks, about 70 bundles of balloons carrying explosive devices have been destroyed with this installation. The tests were recognized as successful!

        "And where is your stream of thought to the news about the fire?"
        On a super-super-intelligent, analytical, your question, eat an anecdote about "which Side":
        "Stirlitz walked along the red carpet, there were people on the sides and
        carefully examined him. "Inauguration" - thought Stirlitz. "

          Bravo, for an anecdote that was relevant in the 30s - take a pie from the shelf, only then do not forget to put it back. And fewer psychotropic drugs, so that frank delirium, not related to the topic, does not write.

      The unit is designed for MAGAV divisions

      Either MAGAV has grown wiser in the two decades since I got rid of it, or is it a very easy-to-use device laughing

        Well .., the news flashed, yesterday was mine, deputy. US Secretary of State has prepared a document of agreement on the division of the maritime border between Lebanon and Israel. Like the parties are going to sign!

        It does not happen that, at first, in one country they are preparing to open two large ports with a system for servicing the largest cargo ships in the world, and in a neighboring, failed country, where an armed bandit group is running the show, which curses the flow of drugs to the Middle East from South America , in the country receiving the grain of wheat to its port, for the same Middle East.

        I see the following picture:
        1. Lebanon, as an unstable state, is merged, but in more humane ways than Syria.
        2. The Chinese will begin to provide logistics for the delivery of grain to the Middle East through the Ashdod and Haifa ports of Israel.
        3. The main state partner and intermediary for the transportation of grain between Arabs and Israelis becomes the Arabian Emirates.
        4. Lebanon, by the kindness of the Jewish, is given a part of the Mediterranean gas-bearing shelf for development and processing. It will be processed by the Chinese, French, or Russians. The Turks only need transit and connection to their gas hub.

        So the port is on fire, and will continue to burn, since this is a landless territory - Upper Galilee or the Levant, whichever is more convenient.

    The reasons for the fire have not yet been officially reported, but one of the eyewitnesses told The National that welding was being carried out at the warehouse.

    "They were welding metal rods to fix the warehouse, and suddenly a big fire started, which spread very quickly, because there is a lot of alcohol, tires, cardboard, paper and other things that burn very quickly," said an employee of one of the port's transport companies. Alain Khoury, 28. "We heard people shouting 'run, run'. We left all work and ran too," he added.

    Isn't it time to fire the welder?

    Yes, that's how it happens: trouble has come, open the gate. Because "whoever is more afraid of something, then it will definitely happen to him."
    I sympathize with Beirut people. Probably, after the explosion, they have such a psychological state in which everything falls out of hand. Hence - the second misfortune, now in the form of a fire. This is called demoralization.
    They say the plume of smoke rose three kilometers.
    Poor people ...

    Arson. The oils and tires were not chosen by chance, but to make it more smoke and more panic in the city. Time again coincided with a decrease in "orange" activity. There are too many coincidences for coincidences, therefore, that the first with an explosion is a terrorist attack, that this arson is from the same producers of "peaceful revolutions".
