Yes, I did.

Blowing glass out of windows for 7 miles away, crushing cars, ain't the normal kind of fireworks plant going off by accident.
More likely, a Iranian rocket dump went off,,or got set off by the Izzys.

How much you wanna bet the izzys set off iranian munitions being delivered to hezbolla? Or i guess maybe some hezbolla had a darwin moment, they are not noted for being the sharpest pencils.

Ok just realized mr yellowhand said the same thing. What he said. Damn sure wasnt fireworks.

It's definitely interesting. I found a vid posted on Twatter that clearly shows fireworks going off in the smoke cloud, and then BOOM! one very large high order detonation. Very reminiscent of the PEPCON (rocket fuel plant) explosion up back in the '80s.

It was just the Israeli's slapping those dipshits before they could use their weapon stash.

Israel had allowed Hezbollah infiltrators to get into Israeli borders and place their package or whatever those dip$hits did to calm themselves down and then leave unscathed. That wasn't enough for them so they sent in another team like last night when the 1st team didn't succeed. I guess Pipi Nut & Yahoo decided its time to play Nasrallah's game.

Hmmm, maybe they meant to set the timer for [dd/mm/yyyy] of 04/07/2020 and not 04/08/2020, perhaps a belated fireworks display for America's B'day?

My money is on the Mossad.

A daisy cutter was only 15000 pounds and this blast looked larger to me, around 20,000 pounds best guess.

Would need to go in and measure the hole, see how far out the shock wave crushed cars, etc, to be sure.

As we say down south,,,,,that was regular fireworks my ass!!!!:)LOL

Stored nearby the port, in an industrial area, not too many locals about, seems like a tailor made mission for them navy personnel to prevent them from being fired into Israel.

Whatever Iran can make, someone,:)LOL can blow up.

It was a government warehouse storing seized explosive materials.

I was there in 1982.

Hizballah runs the whole place today.

Like you, I was there in the early 70's, 1974 before all the troubles, was once a very beautiful city and country.

Beirut, the Paris of the middle east is no more
