Beirut explosion: Video shows new angle of the massive blast

Warning: This video contains disturbing content. Discretion advised.
The moment of the massive explosion that rocked the Lebanese capital Beirut, killing more than 137 people and injuring thousands, was captured in high definition by a shop owner who was recording when the blast hit.
Video shows smoke rising from Beirut's port with small sparks being seen in what is believed to be fireworks that were set off by the blaze. According to reports, fireworks were stored in the same warehouse where 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate had previously been stored. After several seconds of recording, a massive explosion bursts outwards, which then moves outwards towards where the shop owner is, the resulting shockwave impacting multiple buildings in the process.

    it's a shame you didn't accept help from Israel. i am from israel. karma tried to connect between us but your government's head is to high in the sky. all recent events like "corona" and explosions are happening because Ego and money controlling this world, instead of poeple working together to develop and evolve as one big nation, people are concerned about their own pockets . people are too concerned about what makes us different instead how to connect between us. people are too concerned about what happened in the past instead of looking to the future. we are destroying this world with our pollution and antisocial behavior. open your eyes everyone. i can only wish you the best, sending you love.

    La explosión en beirut no fue accidente, No dudo ni tantito que haya Sido un ataque de prueba del satélite "Thor" Thor es una potente arma lanza misiles en forma de flechas desde un satélite en órbita controlado por los estados unidos por el fuerte disparo ayudado por la atracción de la gravedad este misil llega a su objetivo con una velocidad de 12,500 kilómetros por hora lo que lo hace imperceptible al ojo humano y con una gran fuerza de devastación ( fue estados unidos el responsable)

    What you will find interesting. There was an earthquake Then came the blast. Notice this as it explodes. The ground shakes everywhere first. Considering this. The quake was faster than light. So you see the explosion AFTER the quake. then the force of the blast that is braking the sound barrier.

    NUCLEAR without any doubt, 3-5kton, illuminati attack, small radiation instantly covered by the sea water enters in the crater. Chemical explosives NEVER leaves a crater, much less a 43m deep crater on reinforced concrete of a harbor, this is a joke, only neclear plasma ball can do this. Second clearly sign is the one millisecond time of the explosion and like other world initial speed of expansion, CLEARLY neclear again. The vapor condensed of the presure wave is very like the baker underwater test.

    The fire crackers cause a fire and it cause a dust explosion to happen causing a chain reaction in the dust particles which caused the big dust cloud and explosion 🤯😇

    Combination of Debris and Water is what I think is seen from this explosion. I added water, because I saw a video click of men doing a video from their yacht. And what I can tell, the pressure was so strong that blast lift up the areas waterway, which is what I also see hitting the buildings. Something like a Tsunami, but worse.
