Cos fireworks have colours and there were no colours in the initial explosions to be seen
That’s why, simple and obvious in my opinion
That and Palestine are likely not allowed fireworks because they are rockets, bloody hell, common sense must be uncommon, hezbollah rocket Israel and could use fireworks as propellants
Local Fady Roumieh was stood in the car park to shopping centre ABC Mall Achrafieh, around 2km east of the blast, when the explosion occurred. He said: 'It was like a nuclear bomb.
The damage is so widespread and severe all over the city. Some buildings as far as 2km are partially collapsed. It's like a war zone.
The damage is extreme. Not one glass window intact.'
One witness said: 'I saw a fireball and smoke billowing over Beirut. People were screaming and running, bleeding. Balconies were blown off buildings. Glass in high-rise buildings shattered and fell to the street.'

BBC report Lebanons chief of security says the cause was "highly explosive material,but NOT explosives."
Im not sure how that can be deduced at this stage but thats what they rekon.
Whatever caused it,its going to have serious repurcussions on the country which was in dire straights before this happened.
Isreal have said they are not responsible for the explosion.

2020 just needs to end
Were absolutely not surprised that YOU automatically thought Israel nuked someone.........

“Highly explosive material, not explosives...”
Oxidizer, as might be used in rocket engines, perhaps?
Kind of depends on how loosely you define the term “fireworks”, I suppose.
