A massive explosion rocked Beirut on Tuesday, flattening much of the port, damaging buildings across the capital and sending a giant mushroom cloud into the sky. The health minister said more than 25 people were killed and over 2,500 injured.

Typical napalm explosion. There was a stockpile of the napalm kept in order to harm Israel. When it was in the process of getting moved to the fore-front, ie, giving it to Hezbollah, Mossad did it's job.

The mushroom shaped cloud was just like a shape figured out by explosion of atomic device. I wish if our country can develop thermonuclear device of such yield that can be fired by 155 mm howitzer.

Sep 13: a vessel with 2,750 tons of Ammonium Nitrate entered the Beirut port.

Oct 15: "the port authorities discharged the cargo onto the port’s warehouses. The vessel and cargo remain to date in port awaiting auctioning and/or proper disposal."

Such a huge quantity kept for so long. Dubious story.

lebanon is not your regular country, hezbollah owns almost everything there, especially in beirut. when two parallel systems govern one country, inefficiencies creep in. you never know.
since israel has denied any action, and offered to help lebanon medically.
it's possible the inputs are true.

Ammonium Nitrate was used in Oklahoma city bombing

.
Ammonium Nitrate was the personal favorite of Indian Mujahideen. Majority of the bomb blasts that took place under the Indian-Mujahideen or Islamic Ummah banner between 2008-2013 were pure ammonium nitrate bombs.
They have been used in the past by Naxals as well but very effectively used by IM and sundry others.
