The ammonium nitrate that blew up last week in Beirut was owned by the Hezbollah terror group that intended to use the material in a war against Israel, a top investigative reporter said Friday.

The leader of the Iran-backed terrorist organization, Hassan Nasrallah, is the person at the top responsible for the material having been in Beirut’s port before the massive explosion last week that claimed over 150 lives, wounded 6,000 people and left a large part of the Lebanese capital in ruins, said Channel 13 Arab Affairs reporter Zvi Yehezkeli.

“I see Nasrallah as the main culprit and the main person responsible for holding and bringing this material, the ammonium nitrate to the port warehouses. As the person in charge of the port and the border crossings, that is what he is currently trying to evade,” Yehezkeli said in an interview on Tel Aviv’s 103FM radio.

Yehezkeli is fluent in Arabic and is known for being a member of the small cadre of Israeli reporters who travel abroad and go behind the scenes. He has twice infiltrated Islamic groups in Europe to report on how the Islamic State and Muslim Brotherhood operate there.
