How will Lebanon ever recover? | Start Here

How will Lebanon ever recover? Lebanon suffered a devastating ammonium nitrate explosion in early August.
The port in Beirut is barely recognisable, more than a quarter of a million people are homeless and the death toll is high. People are angry. So what happened? And how will the almost bankrupt country recover?

    Maybe the over 30000 Australian citizens will come home

  • Andrew Gnys says:

    I have say if a terrorist group claimed responsibility for the bombing I would have to take my hat of to them. That explosion was huge, Timothy McVeighs ANFO bomb looks like candles compared to this one.

    • D J says:

      Why would they claim responsibility. Your flag says it all. You will believe everything Israeli media tells you.

      I think you should be more concerned about Turkey’s ambitions, unless of course you don’t mind them taking over the country.

    • James Aldridge says:

      According to the Old Testament Lebanon is north Israel. Bethlehem and the Sea of Galilee are in Lebanon. This is the beginning of Armageddon.

    self aggrandisement

  • Andrew Gnys says:

    When you say Syria’s support what do you mean? They can barely support themselves because of their civil war. I know Syria wants the “French experiment” called Lebanon.

    • José Menendéz says:

      It’s because of US and Israeli sanctions on Lebanon and Syria. Now their pier blew up, starting to get the picture.

  • Shahrizal Abd Rahman says:

    Not a single militan organisation able to have that types of weppons or bom in this huge explosive..only countyr or nation have a capebility to own this types of boms…and for that accountablelity absolutely israeli governents as “terroris

  • Husain Alhayki says:

    All in power should be jailed and no party that is running today can run again ,lebanon has many dedicated citizens that put the country ,its people first, first problem is HEZBULLAH WEAPON and the Israeli conflict first problem and biggest to lebanon is to end the conflict with israel either by peace or by going to war and taking back shabaa farms ,why hold everyone hostage over a piece of land since forever , just end the conflict take everyone’s weapons away and make all groups join one Lebanese army , everything else will fall in its place

  • Kelum Perera says:

    Nice presentation!!

  • Shahzore Khan says:

    Hope they get through this difficult time, from your brother in 🇵🇰

    • IGH says:

      What about pakistan? It looks like it is going dowm the drain as well.

    • Shahzore Khan says:

      IGH Pakistan has been through the worst and since 2009( when there used to be a terrorist attack almost everyday), the security situation has improved alot. Nowadays we rarely see a terrorist attack. But corruption is rampant and is effecting economy. Pakistan has fared much better in the pandemic than many powers of the world and growth is expected from the next quarter. But still we are hopeful to do better

    • IGH says:

      @Shahzore Khan ok. I know you are blind to the obvious because of your arabo-muslim blind patriotism but good for you if things are working fine in that forgotten land of Allah.

  • scorpioninpink says:

    To the gallows with every corrupt politicians, including Hezbollah!

  • VoskiArdziv says:

    let the lebanese get the money from IsRawHell, since the Beirut port was hit by an IsRawHelli tactical nuclear missile.

    • ethan 1212 says:

  • Derick Lewis says:

    Separation of church and state is the best concept in human history. Ppl will never be able to agree on different religious grounds but they can agree on what’s best for the ppl without too much conflict. And hezbolah needs to go, that’s the only ppl who would want that much explosive materials

  • cool light says:

  • Mr.Logic23 says:

    Lebanon won’t recover from this because it is a very corrupt country.

    • Ladey Babey says:

      Mr.Logic23 Because of the militias and foreign governments

    • Mr.Logic23 says:

      Ladey Babey you can always blame someone else. That’s the problem with the Arab governments, they never face their own incompetence.

  • Avi says:

    Everyone is calling for the Lebanese government (including Hezbollah) for a transparent investigation.
    The only transparency Nut-Ra-lala knows is his transparent protective screen.

  • faiza ibrahim says:

    im sure of that Hizbollah did it 👹 because no one wanted any more to help Libanon because of them 👹 so they did this to get the world give them maney in the name of the people so they can put it in there puckets like always 👹👹 no matter how much the world help Libanon nothing will change 😥😥

  • ethan 1212 says:

    No one is talking in the comments about the conflict of interrests i.e. USA and Israel vs. Christians + Hisbolla within Lebanon. This wear and trear appears to me as a weakening point, which gives rise to corruption & etc.

  • Kevin Rudd says:

    It was all planed, looked like hollywood.
    Whats the comfusion about, just see who benfits,? Thats all, u dont need a phd to get that;-)

  • Markec smotanec says:

    Horrible….iam sooooo sad because of The suffering that these people went through during the long war (similarly, my country had to go through 90’s for independence)
    Then they have their own country, a flag, but a policy that brought them to the brink of starvation, without money, without a future.
    And then this catastrophe happens to destroy you to the end …. unfortunately maybe only after this catastrophe will Lebanon come out like a phoenix from the ashes into the country it deserves to be ….Now or never the state is in the hands of those desperate people who need to build it out of the ashes. The world is with you ….. at least ordinary people give you support and want to build their future without wars without the state you fought for.And remove these incompetent politicians from the order ….
    From love and from my heart…..from Croatia ❤️

  • Nemanja Canic says:

    Please something about Kosovo and Serbia relationship. Thanks!

  • Todd James says:

    Thank you Sandra for doing such an outstanding job explaining this very complex situation. Many others can learn and understand so much more about Lebanon.

  • Rosemarie Barreto says:

    Religion is the opium of the masses

  • Joseph Saleh says:

    It’s all by design international banksters to destroy Lebanon from with in to make way for the greater Israel period

  • Ladey Babey says:

    Nothing will change, Iran, Saudi Arabia and all big players will eat Lebanon alive and try to get more influence and power. Hezbollah and other militias will make sure that the military stays corrupt and from there it shows that Lebanon is nothing but a foreign government jerk circle. 🤷‍♀️

  • Jay DiBernardo says:

    Excellent report. Keep up the great work.

  • Me H says:

    They’re reset every 50 years. This was thermobaric. Contained heat, used to express hypersonic expansion and sonic disruption materialy. You’re minimizing this with false pretense. A bomb, like the one used in Syria 7 months ago. This attack is an attack on their food supply.
    Run tracing in the blast signature and sonic character of the expansion and the manufacturer will reveal itself….

    Who gains from the good shortage?
    Who gains from the Food shortages?
    What navy ships were in the harbour?
    What radio chatter was happening?

    its so pakistan

  • The Wanderer says:

    I’d day that Lebanon needs to end the power distribution to the sects as a starting point. Citizens shouldn’t be given political power based on their religious or ethnical background. However, I don’t know the country’s internal constraints, so I might be completely wrong. It is sad, very sad, what happened to the Lebanese people. I remember their civil war on the news when I was a kid, and I hope this is not a return to those terrible times. Hopefully, the people who are protesting will stay united. I wish all the best to Lebanon!

  • James Aldridge says:

    AL Jazeera is the best source of news from the middle East.

  • Tim Penni says:

    Well again what about the thousands that have been killed in syria. Women and children displaced. Starving. People dying everyday.

  • luci75 D says:

    That country was distorted by its own people and factions ! And when this happen foreign hands always can get involve easy to destabilize…. so the People should get together and act as one ! Also need a very Strong and powerful leadership united ( but as we all know the political landscape it’s very divided and small). Even a 2 party system it will better ! Way to many factions now in Lebanon which reflect the people’s divisions ! So it’s about people’s fault mostly !
