On Wednesday, reporter Firas Hatoum revealed that the Rhosus, which carried the #AmmoniumNitrate from Georgia to the #BeirutPort, was only one of several similar ships.
After tracing the journey of all the ships that left Georgia between 2012 and 2014, four were found to have already docked in #Beirut, #Tripoli and #Tartus.

According to Hatoum's investigative report aired on Al-Jadeed, the four ships are part of the #Odessa Network,
a group of businessmen, companies and ships accused of transporting arms and war cargo from #Russia and Ukraine to the #AssadRegime in Syria since 2011.

Yadot Ahranot reveals #Israel's direct responsibility for Sabra and Shatila massacre, I personally have witnessed the consequences, that remain unaccountable. It took place 40 years ago, by Lebanese Israel's proxies: the Phalange militia & Saad Haddad's South Lebanon Army.
The massacre of thousands of Palestinian and Lebanese civilians living in the Sabra and Shatila neighbourhoods of southern #Beirut took place after a meeting in which Ariel Sharon gave the orders to his proxies to commit the massacre and come up with a domesticated version.
The killings were perpetrated while #Israel, which had occupied #Lebanon from the southern border through West Beirut, surrounded the unprotected Palestinian camps, protected the killers and invented a story to hide its direct responsibility for the massacre.

Not surprising.

Three missiles hit the western Ukrainian Danylo Halytskyi International Airport of #Lviv, one of the hubs for the international military supply for #Ukraine to continue its proxy war against #Russia and drag the diplomatic negotiations.…
A small specimen of the "fog of war".

This film is widely shared as #Russia victims of morning bombing on the Capital #Kyiv and others on #Marupol in the south. In reality, it is a March 2021 clip by an artist.

The destruction caused by a huge explosion of #Beirut #Lebanon has become a #Russia/n destruction of #kharkiv #Ukraine.

Innerhalb weniger Stunden waren die gesamte ukrainische Marine und fast die gesamte ukr. Luftwaffe ausgeschaltet.

1/15 It’s impossible to read the #shamnesty @Amnesty report and not see the main intention. Demonizing #Israel for being a #Jewish state. The half-truths, hearsay, intensive usage of anti-Israel sources & promoting #ThePalestinianLie is mind boggling. I’ll give it a try.
2/15 Refs made in #shamnesty @Amnesty report should be an eye-opener. Information gathered from external (anti-#Israel) sources is huge. Not a word about state funded terrorism of PA or Hamas. Ergo, Palestinians are good, #Jews are bad.

3/15 #shamnesty @Amnesty hitch hikes along the Palestinian land ownership libel, which is proven time after time to be completely incorrect. Also accuses #Israel of Judaization.

‘Water Salute’ to the Swiss International Airline (SWISS) after landing it’s first flight in #Beirut 🇱🇧 from #Zurich🇨🇭
The #WaterSalute is a touching airport tradition to honor new airline service.
The water salute is a touching airport tradition to honor military veterans, foreign dignitaries and new airline service.
Salutes typically involve two firefighting rigs spraying arcs of water over an arriving or departing flight. It is a sign of respect, honour & gratitude.
the water cannons are positioned carefully, in safe locations, allowing enough space for the plane to pass through. The wind direction is taken into account as well, and the process is coordinated together with Air Traffic Control.

أطلق كتاب الناشط السياسي المصري #علاء_عبد_الفتاح أمس الثلاثاء وبغياب علاء، في مكتبة برزخ في الحمرا. الكتاب المعنون «لم تُهزَموا بعد»- وهي عبارة كتبها علاء في العام 2017 من داخل سجن طرّة المصري، صدر أواخر الشهر الفائت وفيه مجموعة من مقالات علاء التي كتبها منذ #ثورة_يناير 2011.
وقد أبدى القيّمون على النشاط، وهم من أصدقاء علاء، قلقهم على وضعه الجسديّ والنفسيّ بسبب ظروف السجن، لا سيّما وأنّه «حُرِم من حقّ الحصول على الكتب، ومعرفة الوقت، وممارسة النشاط الجسدي».
يُذكَر أنّ المحكمة المصرية قد أدرجت علاء، في 18 تشرين الثاني، على قوائم الإرهابيّين لمدّة خمس سنوات، رافضةً الطعن الذي كان قد تقدّم به. وقد قضى علاء حتّى اليوم أكثر من سبع سنوات في سجون عبد الفتاح #السيسي بتهمٍ ملفّقة.

#SaudiArabia expels #Lebanon ambassador. #GCC states expected to follow suit. Decision could impact Lebanese labor; comes after 🇱🇧 govt minister supports #Houthi militia in #Yemen. But this step reflects #Gulf frustration at #Iran-backed #Hezbollah militia's chokehold over 🇱🇧. /1
#Saudi decision to throw out #Lebanon ambassador is not a sudden move but also caps years of #Iran/#IRGC using #Lebanon produce/fruit export trucks to smuggle narcotics into the #Gulf. /2

Huge blast heard in central #Beirut.
#Iran puts its proxies under tremendous pressure in #Iraq and #Lebanon to survive, as they face an uncertain future after losing the elections in Iraq and major people rejection in Beirut.
Why #Hezbollah wants to remove the #Beirut blast Judge. It's ironic to see such acts from #Iranian proxies which confirm their infiltration into the internal affairs of #Lebanon and wider region countries.

Neben Afghanistan sollten wir unsere Augen auf #Beirut und den #Libanon und die Teuerung dort richten. Dieses Land beherbergt nicht zuletzt viele Geflüchtete. Die sich auf den Weg machen werden, wenn die Versorgungslage im Land immer schlimmer werden. Sehenswert👇
@ManuKanzler Die Teuerung im #Libanon ist gewaltig: "Im gleitenden Jahresschnitt von Feb. 2018-19 betrug die Inflation 3,8 Prozent. Das Jahr darauf kletterte sie, auf 11 Prozent. Im Januar dieses Jahres erreichte sie 147 Prozent, und einen Monat später 155 Prozent. 👇
Die Lebensmittelpreise haben sich innerhalb eines Jahres vervierfacht, die Kosten für Kleider und Schuhe, Haushalt und Restaurantbesuche sogar versechsfacht.

One year ago today a massive blast rocked the Beirut port. #Iran-backed Hezbollah was and remains the main suspect. However, justice has yet to be served.

Unfortunately, Lebanon as a country has been nosediving ever since.

For those interested, this thread sheds some light on the Beirut explosion of August 4, 2020.

From @AsaadHannaa:

It’s been a year since the #BeirutExplosion that killed hundreds & left thousands injured.

Gov still supporting no investigation, accused politicians still roaming free, the city is still in ruins & devastated families are till crying.

I am a journalist & condemn any attack on journalists & their offices. In 1982, #Israel bombed our (& many other foreign agencies/newspapers) offices in #Beirut during the invasion w/o warning. However, the (@AP) office is not more important than:👇
The outrage should be against the lack of #Israel/i respect for innocent lives in #Gaza in the first place. The world's 'storm' against Israel bombing @AP and @AlJazeera is greater than the one against Israel's killing.
The 907KG #US_Made GBU-31 Israel used to bring down Al-Jalaa tower where @AP & @AJEnglish offices via @muhammadshehad2.
There is no equilibrium between the Palestinian and the Israeli military power but #Gaza will for the 1st time win its deterrence and is defending #Jerusalem.
