Recklessly.. Amina linked the oil crisis that the country is suffering from to the explosion, as she said: “I mean, there is no diesel, and there is no burning or theft in it.”
The explosion that occurred in the Zouk brought back the memory of the pioneers of social networking sites in Lebanon, the frightening August explosion… the explosion of the port of Beirut.
Iman Ayoub said: “I mean, are they filming a reasonable event? What did they learn from the explosion of the port?”
Traffic stopped completely on the highway, especially from Beirut towards Jounieh, for hours, but fortunately the Civil Defense controlled a fire, and the truck driver survived the tragic accident.
