Remember: All wars are bankers’ wars. There’s a good video on YouTube with that name. The global “elite” want a world war. Let’s don’t give it to them, ok? Would be better to go after the “elite” themselves, which is what draining the swamp entails.
Confusing, devastating, disastrous: these were some of the words people in and around Beirut used to describe a huge explosion that ripped through the Lebanese capital, killing dozens of people and wounding thousands more.
The explosion at Beirut’s port on Tuesday was felt across the city and beyond, causing widespread damage and spreading panic. Authorities have launched an investigation to determine what had caused it.
Al Jazeera spoke to survivors and witnesses in the immediate aftermath of the explosion. Here is what they had to say.
‘I can’t believe I’m still alive’
“I was a few metres away from the electricity establishment in Lebanon, which is parallel to the port,” Nada Hamza, a Beirut resident, said.
“I went out of my car, I ran away to the entrance of one of the buildings, then I realised that the building was destroyed. Then, I tried to call my parents, but I couldn’t reach anyone,” she added.
“I can’t believe I’m still alive.”
