Satellite images to help clarifying Lebanon’s blast

Beirut, Dec 6 (Prensa Latina) The satellite images delivered by Russia to Lebanon will help to clarify what happened during the explosion at Beirut's port, the Pan-Arab TV channel Al-Mayadeen highlighted on Monday.

Lebanese President Michel Aoun pointed out that those snapshots taken before the blast and also after the detonation will provide more information for investigators.

Previously, Lebanese authorities had requested those snapshots to nations with cosmic wits, but all of them, included France and the United States, had refused to provide them.

In November, Aoun asked Russia for those images and Moscow handed them over, and even President Vladimir Putin announced the possibility of helping in every possible way in the investigation.

Considered the country’s worst-ever peacetime disaster, the explosion killed more than 200 people, injured about 6,500 and destroyed the homes of 300,000 others.

The catastrophe occurred on August 4, 2020, and to date, the probe has been suspended due to legal issues.
