A Redditor who claims to be from Beirut, Lebanon also posted a grueling retelling of the events that took place earlier today.

In a post titled: “My country Lebanon literally exploded today,” /u/Kane_398 talked about how the explosion happened right when he was playing Dota 2. It reads:

“I was playing a normal game today when I got thrown out of my chair and half the windows in my house are gone, our country's port is gone we are in hyperinflation my company is about to sack me for sure and I’m pretty sure the air I’m breathing is toxic as hell, but goddamnit I’m still gonna do my contracts. But I got assessed with abandon so **** me for being AFK.”

He also added that he helped out by donating Blood and thanked the Dota 2 community for sending him positive replies in the comments section.
