Mikati referred to that emergency during a speech motivated by the gasoline tank explosion that killed 28 people and injured dozens.

Thousands of ill-gotten gallons of fuel exploded in the town of al-Tleil, in Akkar, to spread more pain across the country.

Al-Tleil is about four kilometers from the Syrian border and became an illegal hydrocarbon deposit to smuggle into the neighboring country, where prices are much higher.

Unconfirmed rumors state that the son of the owner of the land, where the tragedy occurred, fired at the fuel tank and caused the detonation.
