Hezbollah is responsible for the devestating explosion in the Port of Beirut last week, the killed 145 people and wounded over 5,000, former Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon asserted Friday, in an interview with Saudi outlet Elaph.

According to Ya’alon, a weapons depot belonging to the Iranian-backed terrorist group had caught fire and led to the ammonium nitrate stored in the port to blow up.

“Lebanon is not an independent state, it was taken hostage by Hezbollah,” Ya’alon was quoted as saying, adding that Hezbollah was well aware of the massive nitrate stock in the port which is under its control.
