Israel denies any involvement in the horrific bombings in Beirut.
Israel has denied any involvement in the horrific bombings at a warehouse in the port city of Beirut that killed several people and injured hundreds.
Israeli Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi, speaking on state television, called the Beirut bombing an “accident.”
Another Israeli official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Israel had no hand in the Beirut bombing and had not done so.
It should be noted that tensions between Israel and Lebanon have risen in recent days and clashes between Hezbollah and Israeli forces have been reported in disputed areas.
On the other hand, the Lebanese Prime Minister on Wednesday declared national mourning over the loss of precious lives in the tragic tragedy.
According to the news agency, two explosions took place in the Lebanese capital Beirut in which 10 people have been confirmed dead so far while hundreds were injured.
Lebanese officials said the blast in the city took place in an arms depot, while the blast at the port took place in a firecracker warehouse. The blasts were heard 240 kilometers away.
