Israel destroys East Beirut with a new weapon

Thierry Meyssan – Aug 7, 2020

The first Israeli Prime Minister has ordered the destruction of a Hizbollah weapons warehouse in Beirut with a new weapon. The weapon, which is not well known, caused considerable damage in the city, killing more than 100 people, injuring 5,000 and destroying many buildings. This time it will be difficult for Benjamin Netanyahu to deny it.

On September 27, 2018, Benjamin Netanyahu pointed out to the United Nations General Assembly forum the warehouse that will explode on 4 August 2020 as a Hezbollah arms depot.

The first Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, authorized a strike against a Hezbollah arms depot using a new weapon that has been tested for seven months in Syria. It is not known whether the second Prime Minister, Benny Gantz, gave his consent.

The strike was carried out on August 4, 2020, at the exact location designated by Benjamin Netanyahu in his speech to the United Nations on September 27, 2018 [1].

It is not known what weapon was used. However, it has already been tested in Syria since January 2020. It is a missile with a tactical nuclear component in its warhead that causes a smoke mushroom characteristic of nuclear weapons. It is obviously not an atomic bomb in the strategic sense.

The weapon was tested in Syria on a plain in the countryside and then in the Persian Gulf on the water against Iranian military vessels. This is the first time it has been used in an urban environment, in a particular environment that made the air blast and vibrations reflect off the water and the mountains. Far from destroying only the port of Beirut, it killed about a hundred people, injured at least 5,000 others, and largely destroyed the eastern part of the city (the western part was largely protected by the grain silo).

Israel immediately activated its networks in the international media to cover up its crime and lend credence to the idea of the accidental explosion of a fertilizer stockpile. As is often the case, false culprits are named, and the international media machine repeats this lie over and over again in the absence of any investigation. Yet there was indeed a smokestack incompatible with the thesis of a fertilizer explosion.

The smoke mushroom observed in Beirut has nothing to do with what would have been caused by a conventional explosive.

Just as neither Syria nor Iran had communicated about this weapon when they were hit, the Lebanese political parties immediately reached an agreement not to say anything in order not to demoralize their population. An investigation was opened, not into the cause of the explosion, but into the responsibility of the port’s personnel for the storage of the fertilizer allegedly responsible for the explosion. However, this lie soon turned against the political parties that had imagined it.

The United Nations Tribunal for Lebanon, which was due to make public its verdict in the case of the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in 2005, decided to postpone it for a few days. Identically in that case, the explosion of a pickup truck masked the firing of a missile with a new weapon, just as this time the explosion of nitrate masked the firing of a missile with another new weapon.

Five years later, five years too late, I revealed in a Russian magazine the manner in which Rafik Hariri had been killed [2], while Hezbollah published a video attesting to Israel’s involvement.

It is important to note that the 2005 assassination targeted a former Sunni Prime Minister and that the 2020 attack targeted not Shiite Hezbollah, but the Lebanese Resistance as a whole.

This time, several embassies carried out surveys, including taking grain samples and air filters from ambulances that immediately went to the scene. They are already being examined in their respective countries.

  1. Yes, Israel did it. One can view the arrival of the Israeli missile on a rare video available
    online. Israel used a nuke on the port of Beirut. it is far past time for the good people of the world come together and wipe Israel from the face of the globe.

  2. Moshe Solomons the dissident ex Mossad cheif said weeks ago on conspiracy news that there would be a huge attack on a neighbouring country
    its time the USA stopped supporting terrorism and blew israel out of the ground

  3. It would be unusual if Israel wasn’t responsible. If it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck, looks like a duck, then it’s not a giraffe.

  4. This is pretty stupid stuff….OF COURSE THE JEWS DID IT….theres no need to debate the issue.

    Two explosions,and as some have stated the first to disguise the second.
    One of the initial explanations first touted….was that some stored fireworks had blown up….on par with the 9/11 story concerning the passports of the terrorists being found in the rubble of the WTC.
    Surely than Lebanese should be already planning their response?…..

  5. Netanyahu did not kill anyone, these are insects. /sarc

  6. @ Peter

    In a word, No, He is a gatekeeper. The tell tale proof is in the article you linked. The “marker” # 33 is mentioned in description of a missile that is clearly more than “at 33”. This is a tell to those in the club that they have put their signature on it. He also fired two journalists at VT for their coverage of the Sandy Hook deception drill because they were unveiling the real truth.

    P.S. It was not a “nuclear” missile either that also plays into the #33 club deceptions.

  7. I immediately thought it was an air/fuel bomb like the one used to destroy the Murrah building in Oklahoma. The 1st blast fills the area with atomised fuel the 2nd ignites it and causes a giant pressure wave, as we saw, a supersonic pressure wave with no flame -front.
    I smelt a rat straight away, one with a big nose. No one stores thousands of tons of ammonium nitrate in a ware house for years, who was paying for the storage on it in a prime dockside location like that.? Who would believe fireworks would be stored next to ammonium nitrate, then after a few years suddenly blow up the whole area. Mind you people believe there’s a deadly pandemic on at the moment despite no evidence at all so maybe some do believe this fairy story.

  8. Well done Israel. I applaud you! Lebanese are filty degenerate’s. When my country re settled Lebanese into my country the outcome was terrible.
    Home invasions.
    Drug dealing
    Murders of police officers.

    My only beef with this explosion was it didnt kill enough of these Arab scum.

  9. Don’t be fooled by the Anglicised name. This post is from a self-confessed Zionist.

  10. This was probably the work of Israel as they both have the history of such things and also greatly benefit from this event; then quickly their Zionist friends rushed-in to gain from the opportunity, as Macron of France was the first to arrive and talk crap!

    HOWEVER, this was no secret weapon, it was merely a sabotage operation. There was a massive 2750 tons of Sodium Nitrate which is usually used in mining explosions and also could be used in military purposes, though the volatility makes it less popular in military use. These supplies were planned to be smuggled to Syria in 2014 for anti-Assad forces however they were found, confiscated and stored in a surprisingly bad warehouse. There were letters from officials asking to decide what to do with these, however Lebanese army being nothing more than city-police decided to just keep them there! It is possible that a small bomb was planted to cause fire nearby which reached the warehouse and caused the massive explosion. The chemical reaction was so intense that caused the mushroom-like effect. The explosion destroyed the wheat silos, medicine storage and other important supplies. It seriously damaged the already weak economy of Lebanon which is also under US sanctions!

    1- This had nothing to do with Hezbollah, missiles don’t explode like that and there were no weapons stashed in that port.
    2- This was also no Israeli secret weapon as explained.
    3- Israel sabotaged the massive chemical supplies held at the warehouse.
    4- The main idea is for Zionists and vultures to score-points in a forced future deal from Lebanese government and also cause problems for Hezbollah.
    5- The longer term plan is to cause famine or shortage of food in middle east, wheat fields burned in Najaf-Iraq, foods warehouse burned in a massive fire in Ajman-UAE, and also US sat fire to fields in Syria… overall it appears that such moves are in the direction to cause economic and food supply shortage in the region.

    my two rials

  11. The material was actually “ammonium nitrate”, I correct my error above.

  12. Can we cut out this ‘Jewish’ shit please? There are millions of Jews across the planet that have fuck all to do with any of this. Instead say it how it is! It’s Israel, Nitwhityahoo and his cronies who, being Satanists, are not Jews anyway.

  13. All the Lebanese in my town are great people and very law-abiding.

  14. Quote:Newton’s third law is: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. The statement means that in every interaction, there is a pair of forces acting on the two interacting objects. The size of the forces on the first object equals the size of the force on the second object…
    So ? Now wait & see the reaction coming ..
    Because it will come !

  15. the day when Netanyahu gets his just desserts is a long time coming, the only problem will be a lot of Innocent Bystanders will also get the After Blast.

  16. Dr. Cray sees fit to submit exactly the same comment to two separate articles at the same website on the same day. He must feel strongly about the matter to so slavishly reiterate his point. Yet, it is a poorly-informed remark – even if its intention is fair.

    “Most Jews do not like to admit it but our god is Lucifer and we are very much his chosen people. Lucifer is very much alive.” Harold Wallace Rosenthal, aide to Senator Jacob Javits, in an interview with Walter White, broadcast in 1976.

    I guess, those of us who know, know. Those who don’t, may yet – if they choose to expand their reading a little. Learn about Sayanim, Hasbara, Bodlim, Oter, Kidon and Crypto-Jews. Learn about the Kol Nidre absolution and constitutional subversion. Go to Castle Hill publishers and marvel at the abundance of documentary proofs now available, revealing that the genocide of the European Jewry is a fraud. Who was behind the Manhatten Project? Who killed Patton and Kennedy? Who controls issuance of money? Who despoiled the Nobel Prize?
    Be amazed to discover that there were many jewish homelands prior to 1948. I can name at least twenty (and will, if a fellow truthseeker asks.) What happened to these territories? Why were jews expelled from 86 different countries or states on 112 separate occasions? The most recent, for example, being their expulsion from the province of San Juan Leguna, Guatemala in 2014.
    I needn’t mention, I’m sure, 9/11; 7/7; Palestinian genocide; sundry terror-attacks and assassinations worldwide nor the covid blarney and comprehensive censorship now upon us.
    Did you know that the first recorded citation of the name “Israel” is from the Phoenician chronicler, Sanchuniathon, (circa 1800 b.c.) who blandly relates that “Israel” is the name of the “son of Saturn” [Satan.]
    “Jew” and “Satanist” are synonyms. All Jews, by definition, are Satanists. They are not ashamed of it. They would rather gentiles didn’t know, though. Your sentimentalist disambiguation does not hold. Study the evidence. Just because you want something to be true, you want something to be true, that doesn’t mean it is. Even if you say it twice, Dr. Cray.
