Lebanese Health Minister
Lebanon’s Prime Minister Hassan Diab in an official televised speech announced the government resignation, a week after a tragic blast in Beirut killed dozens of people and destroyed houses and streets.
Lebanon’s Health Minister Hamad Hasan on Monday said the government of Hassan Diab has resigned as per the will of the Lebanese people, as Beirut has been rocked by violent protests over rampant corruption, following a deadly blast that killed dozens and injured thousands.
Huge fire was seen on Tuesday just before a deadly explosion took place at the same spot in Beirut, horrifying citizens and destroying houses. The horrible explosion, which has been easily recorded by many citizens, was caused by a fire in a warehouse that housed an estimated 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate, according to Lebanese Prime Minister Hassan Diab.
