    Armenian representative in Lebanon: The scale of destruction from Beirut blast is unprecedented

    The scale of destruction from the Beirut blast is unprecedented, Shahan Kandaharian, editor-in-chief of the Azdak newspaper published in Lebanon, told Armenian News - NEWS.am.

    According to him, even those who saw the war are shocked by what happened.

    The death toll of Armenians may rise as there are missing and badly injured people, he added.

    Almost all houses located in the port area were damaged.

    "There are no doors and windows. Prompt first aid needed. There are also those left without housing at all. Now the country's authorities are discussing the issue of providing housing and settling those left homeless in empty hotels. Schools and churches were damaged. The port area has been declared a disaster zone. Various states already declare their readiness to help, they are already helping, we expect help from Yerevan," he noted.
