Donald trump called a powerful explosion in Beirut monstrous attack and linked the incident with the explosion of “some bombs.” According to the American leader, this version was presented to him by the military, although the Pentagon through the media denies the existence of the Agency such information. Trump was the only world leader who linked the explosion to attack third countries — mainly the international community responded to the incident offer assistance to the Lebanese side.

The US President Donald trump said that in the Lebanese capital Beirut exploded some kind of a bomb. According to him, we are talking about the attack — so consider some of the American generals.

“I met with some of our wonderful generals they Seem to think that it was an attack. It was some kind of bomb, Yes. It was not a manufacturing explosion. They [the generals] know better than me,” said trump.

He also added that he considers the incident of the monstrous attack, the United States has suggested that the Lebanese authorities its assistance.

A powerful explosion occurred in the port area of Beirut near a Lebanese military base on August 4. The blast destroyed or damaged dozens of homes and cars, according to the latest data, has killed more than 100 people and injured more than 4 thousand Local authorities attributed the incident to detonation of 2.7 tons of ammonium nitrate in one of the warehouses at the port and do not hasten to speak about the attack or the attack.

The version with the attack, in addition to trump, put forward channel Al Hadath. Sources blamed the incident on Israel — Israeli radio later Kan got the refutation of this theory by their interlocutors in tel Aviv.

According to CNN, the US President questioned the Pentagon. Three high-ranking defense Ministry source told the TV station that the Agency did not have evidence that in the case of the explosion in the Lebanese capital we are talking about the attack.

In this case, one of the sources said that if the Pentagon had this information — the United States began to strengthen security measures around the us bases and diplomatic facilities, but so far nothing like this happens.

By the way, a former adviser to trump the national security Brett Mcguirk has called the statements of the American leader on the explosion in Beirut irresponsible. In his opinion, Trump should not “breed talk” about the incident.

“it is Absolutely irresponsible of the President to dissolve the chatter while hundreds of victims still unaccounted for or are in the hospitals,” said Mcguirk.

However, trump in fact — the only world leader who allowed himself to compare the explosion in the Lebanese capital with someone’s attack. In General, international reaction to the incident was predictable: heads of state conveyed their condolences and offered assistance in Eradrecommendations the effects of the blast — local authorities assessed the damage from the explosion at the port of $3-5 billion.

For example, the President of Russia Vladimir Putin sent a telegram of condolences to his Lebanese counterpart Michel Aoun. “Russia shares the grief of the Lebanese people. Please, convey words of sympathy and support to the families and friends of those killed and wishes those injured a speedy recovery”, — stated in the text.

If we talk about assistance, the Russian side has sent to Lebanon mobile hospital with doctors to assist victims of the explosion. We are talking about hospital detachment MOE “Centrospas”, which can accommodate up to 200 people per day and to accommodate 50 patients.

Also supported by France, Czech Republic, Iran, Iraq and Kuwait, and willingness to provide assistance was expressed more than 10 States.

In particular, Cyprus proposed to take the victims, given the proximity of the country to Lebanon. In addition, the government is in contact with the UN and the world health organization (who).

The Governor of Beirut, Marwan Abboud compare the consequences of the explosion with the dropping of the bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945. Residents left homeless, hundreds, the death toll is gradually increasing, the country declared mourning and a state of emergency.

Currently, all the powers of the local authorities are thrown on elimination of consequences of incident as a matter of utmost priority, a few pushing the cause of the explosion. The basic version with a warehouse for the storage of nitrate from the point of view of some Western experts seems to fit the nature of the incident, but why it was detonated is still unknown.

As written by Al Mayadeen, a possible cause for the explosion could be welding on the stock or short circuit. Channel sources say that the room was kept confiscated nitrate, which nine years ago had been placed in storage for further processing or destruction, and in April there was a report about the dangers of storing such cargo in the sea harbour.

However, this is not the only version of the incident. If we exclude deliberate attack, immediately after the explosion spun the two theories.

First, the local media actively wrote that the explosion occurred in a warehouse of pyrotechnics in the port, which is indirectly confirmed by a series of small POPs and a serious fire before the main explosion.

The second version is also linked to pyrotechnics, but as the explosion is called one of the ships in the port of Beirut. In fact it is not much different from the first and also due to a series of smaller explosions along with a fire before the main incident.
