    There’s a lot of very scary video footage on twitter with people catching the aftermath of the initial small explosion and then being thrown back from the force of the second one. I hope everyone who filmed it is okay cos the force of the blast blew out a lot of windows and doors.

    At least they had the sense to get the fingers into the ears upon seeing the approaching shockwave, I hope!

          Fertilizer.

          Fertilizer bombs with a Semtex/C4 booster charge have been used as truck, car bombs etc in Ireland and the UK for decades.

          Fertiliser and explosives. That’s why the Irish government had IFI build their factory back in the Arklow / Wicklow area.

      Considering the predator drone fired by the Israelis was most likely British, its only fair that they should offer assistance.
