WATCH: Qatar's Amir offers assistance to Lebanon following explosion

By QLNews

His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani offered his condolences during a phone call to HE President of Lebanon General Michel Aoun and wished a speedy recovery for the victims of Beirut explosion.

During the call, HH the Amir expressed the State of Qatar's solidarity with Lebanon and its willingness to provide all kinds of assistance necessary to mitigate the effects of the explosion.

 

For his part, HE the Lebanese President expressed his thanks and appreciation to HH the Amir for his stance and the State of Qatar's permanent standing and continuous support to Lebanon.

On Tuesday, a massive explosion has rocked Lebanon's capital, Beirut, causing many casualties, damaging buildings, and shattering windows. The blast, which flattened much of the capital's port, was felt across the city as a giant mushroom cloud rose above it, according to Al Jazeera.

The explosion sent shockwaves across the city, causing widespread damage even on the outskirts of the capital. 

The cause of the explosion was not immediately clear. Mohammed Fahmi, Lebanon's interior minister, said it was apparently caused by ammonium nitrate that was stored in a warehouse at the port.

Al Jazeera carried images of people trapped under rubble, many bloodied, after the massive blasts in the port area.

"The site looks like a 'wasteland' with debris seen everywhere. Cars (from the ground) were thrown three floors up onto roofs of factories here," said Al Jazeera's correspondent.

Qatar Living joins the rest of Qatar and the world in standing by Lebanon in the aftermath of the explosion in Beirut. Our condolences go out to those lives lost and those affected.
