On August 4, 2020, Beirut was devastated by a massive explosion at the port sent shock waves across the Lebanese capital, resulting in 204 deaths, 6,500 injuries, $15 billion in property damage, and an estimated 300,000 people homeless.
“L’Apocalypse,” read the front page of Lebanon’s French L’Orient Le Jour newspaper. Another paper, al-Akhbar, had a photo of a destroyed port with the words: “The Great Collapse.”
The explosion was caused by a large amount of ammonium nitrate stored at the port of Beirut.
Many blamed Hezbollah for that blast. The terror group claimed it had nothing to do with it.
