In a report entitled “Beirut’s Second Bomb,” German media revealed dangerous materials still present at the Beirut port.
The German “NTV” news network stated in its report that a German company was helping to prevent a second disaster in the Beirut port, perhaps to the same extent as the August 4 disaster.
The report said that “during the security and cleaning work after the severe destruction of the port disaster, workers in the port found 52 containers containing partially rotting materials and representing more than 1000 tons of chemicals”.
“We should say it as it is: What we found here was a second Beirut bomb,” said Heiko Filderhof, managing director of Combi Lift, which is tasked with disposing of chemicals found in the port after the explosion.
I’ve never seen anything like it before”.
A very powerful explosion occurred in the port of Beirut on August 4, 2020, causing deaths, injuries, and severe material damage to buildings, homes and cars.
The Lebanese authorities said that the cause of the bombing was the presence of 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate that customs confiscated in 2014 and stored in a warehouse.
