ArmInfo. In my opinion, a planned attack took place in Beirut, and it was not a coincidence. In any case, it is necessary to consider the effects of the explosion, regardless of whether this terrible explosion was planned or not. Security expert Hrachya Arzumanyan expressed this opinion to ArmInfo.
According to the expert, at this stage, it is impossible to identify the subtext whether regional or geopolitical, of the Beirut explosion. And, despite the statements of the President of the United States about the "terrible attack", the American military according to them do not have any facts, confirming this theory.
"The regional situation is characterized by a sluggish confrontation between Israel and Hezbollah against the background of mutual awareness of the lack of readiness for a major war. In this light it is unlikely that the Hezbollah group would organize a blast of such a scale, moreover on its ''own'' territory, it would be meaningless. The Israeli intelligence service has already disassociated itself from that, which also looks plausible - Israel usually works pinpointed, but in this case there was a "carpet" blow, "he stressed.
In this light, according to the expert, there remains only the geopolitical arena, in which the USA, Russia, Turkey and all the same Israel are playing today, however, already as a geopolitical actor. When considering this option, according to him, the main question arises - is the explosion a continuation of the old game or is it already the beginning of a completely new one.
"It is possible that the aforementioned players, or one of the players decided to turn the board over and thus began to clear the arena for a new game. The conclusion that Armenia and the Armenians need to draw from all this is to develop evacuation plans. Moreover, not only from Russia, in case another Russian geopolitical catastrophe unfolds. We must be ready to evacuate compatriots from the Middle East. And the events in Lebanon are another confirmation of this, "the analyst concluded.
