Stunning Satellite Images Of Beirut Blast Epicenter

This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge. 

Close-up satellite ‘before and after’ photos have been produced by Planet Labs Inc., and republished by CNN, of Tuesday afternoon’s enormous explosion centered on the Beirut port.

The images confirm every building at the vital port, through which the majority of commerce and staples, including the nation’s grain supply comes, has been utterly destroyed.

A huge crater can be seen at the center of the leveled port, as CNN explains:

The diameter of the Beirut crater created by Tuesday’s explosion appears to be roughly 124 meters — or about 405 feet, according to a CNN analysis of a Planet Labs, Inc. satellite image.

That distance means the crater is well over a football field in length.

Another angle  before and after:

 

The shockwave from the blast, which Lebanese officials now estimate left between three and five billion dollars worth of damage, resulted in damage to homes up to miles away from the blast site.

Hundreds of thousands are reported to be essentially homeless, given entire walls were ripped off residential buildings up to a mile away, with windows shattered multiple miles away.

Close-up view from the port toward the downtown Beirut area:

Top Beirut city government official Marwan Abboud told AFP: “It resembles what happened in Japan, in Hiroshima and Nagasaki,” referencing the atomic bombs dropped during WWII.

“In my life, I haven’t seen destruction on this scale,” he said.

Thankfully, the couple was unharmed after fleeing for cover along with the cameraman. They were later able to continue the wedding, though badly shaken by the ordeal.

In another terrifying instance, a BBC interview was in progress, when the BBC Arabic corresponded appeared to be thrown from her chair amid flying debris and screams:

And watch as a Maronite Catholic priest was serving mass the minute the blast went off.

The worship event was being live-streamed, and was reported as being offered for the healing of coronavirus patients:

Chunks of the church’s roof are seen falling as the priest dashes from the altar and tries to dive for cover.

Lebanese rescue services are reportedly still digging through rubble, looking for survivors or in some cases the deceased.

The official death toll has risen to at least 135, with over 5,000 injured, but the number is expected to climb as more of the rubble is removed. Families are still searching for loved ones reported missing in the wake of the tragedy.

ammonium nitrate attack authorities banking cartel BEIRUT blast Bomb clear as mud Cyprus Death Donald Trump Explosion Fear flase flag government puppets Headline News Intelwars LEBANON LIES Mainstream media official marrative panic Pentagon generals propaganda

Yesterday’s Beirut Explosion: Is The Official Narrative Solid?

I have a rule, and that’s to never buy the first “official narrative” presented by any government or mainstream media. Especially when it comes to situations that have caused mass death or mass panic. So, is the official narrative of the Beirut, Lebanon explosion solid?

Probably not.  Nothing we are told is the truth anymore, so why on earth would the mainstream media and governments controlled by the banking cartel suddenly decide we deserve the real story? Plus, some things just don’t add up, much like the coronavirus scamdemic narrative.

For those who aren’t yet aware, a devastating explosion occurred at the port of Beirut that left over 70 people dead and thousands wounded. Even though videos of the explosion continue to emerge showing the immense destruction that was caused, there seems to be little explanation for what actually happened as the media brushes it off as a simple ammonium nitrate mishap.

The blast was reportedly heard as far away as Cyprus, some 150 miles away from the port, according to RTDespite the explanations supplied by Lebanese authorities, United States President Donald Trump apparently felt compelled to weigh in on the incident during a press conference Tuesday evening, suggesting that based on the explosion,”  it was an “attack, it was a bomb of some kind” after consulting with Pentagon generals.

The official narrative says that “authorities” (people desperate to have you believe their narrative)  have traced the explosion to a 2,750-ton stash of explosive ammonium nitrate in a warehouse by the port (certainly not an Israeli missile, Lebanese and Israeli authorities, as well as Hezbollah, have stressed).

If the official story is true, then why would Trump suggest it was an “attack?” Did he just misspeak? If it was an attack, why are others saying it’s just a storage mishap? The almost want attention diverted. Why? Things aren’t adding up already.  When something like this happens, it’s important to pay attention and be aware of it.
