The UN leadership does not yet know whether the powerful explosion in the Lebanese capital was an accident or sabotage. This was announced by the representative of the organization Farhan Khak.
“We have no information about what exactly happened, what caused this, whether it was an accident or artificially created,” said Haq.
Local media reported at least 10 deaths and hundreds more injured.
The Lebanese news agency stated that the epicenter of a powerful explosion in the port of Beirut was a pyrotechnics warehouse, but later the head of the Lebanese general security service, General Abbas Ibrahim, denied the version about pyrotechnics, noting that other explosives that had been stored for a long time were detonated. Israel has denied involvement in the incident. The Lebanese President has called the High Council for National Defense for an emergency meeting.Air Defense Forces exercise started in Belarus
