“I’ve met with some of our great generals and they seem to feel that it was — this was not some kind of a manufacturing explosion type of event — this was a — seems to be, according to them they would know better than I would — but they seem to think it was an attack,” Trump said. “It was a bomb of some kind.”

Trump`s sentiment about the massive Beirut explosion was a response to a question raised by a reporter during the briefing, but they echoed reference he made at the beginning of the briefing when he said the Beirut blast “looks like a terrible attack.”

“Let me begin by sending America’s deepest sympathies to the people of Lebanon, where reports indicate that many many people were killed, hundreds more were very badly wounded in a large explosion in Beirut,” Trump said. “Our prayers go out to all the victims and their families.”

So far, we can authoritatively report that more 100 people have succumbed to the deadly blast and more than 4000 are wounded

Reports also indicate that Israeli authorities distanced themselves from the blast and said the explosion could be due to accidental fire
