Three suicide belts packed with explosives were found by police at the airport, according to local television news reports quoted by Sputnik. A suicide bomber was responsible for one of the blasts, Belgian broadcaster VRT reported.

Several Israelis were in the airport at the time of the explosion but all managed to exit safely with other travelers.

Two explosions were heard at the airport, coming just four days after Salah Abdeslam, the mastermind of the Nov. 13 ISIS attack on Paris, was captured in Brussels.

A United Hatzolah volunteer was at the Brussels airport at the time of the explosions. He described the scene: “At the time of the explosion I was praying at the synagogue in the airport. We felt the explosion. We exited the synagogue in order to see what was happening and we joined the stream of people who were being ushered by police to exit the terminal.

People at the scene said they heard gunshots and screaming in Arabic before the attack, according to media reports.
All airports in the country were shut down pending further developments.

Three explosions tore apart trains at separate locations on the Brussels metro system about a half hour after the initial attack at Zaventem Airport. Due to the obvious risk, the Brussels metro system was shut down and the country’s security leaders activated Level 4, the nation’s highest alert.

  1. Yeah they first call Trump a clown in Europe on MSM. Merkel and her cohorts are the clowns ruining their countries. Trying to hide all the crimes of these zombies. Jihad is the Hitler trying to make people vulnerable with their race card while trying to hold these countries they invade hostage in their own homes while their weak leaders just deliver lip service.
    They’re going to have a hard time hiding this from the world.
    Get rid of Merkel and any leader in bed with them and deport before it’s too late. Either way your in danger why make it easy on them. If this kind of insane thinking by leaders happened in WW11 they would of never been liberated. They were liberated by driving them out.

  2. Why ALL Muslims? Why not Catholics and Christians too? Tired of people blaming All Muslims for these attacks, these are murderers carrying out evil in the name of Allah. These freaks are not Muslim, not true to religion. So lets not blame every Muslim in the world for what has happened.

  3. Michelle King Islam is a violent religion. Trump, is correct. If America, continues to allow Muslims to enter, what happened in Belgium, will happen in America. All wars on the planet, involve Muslims. Nearly, all terrorism, involves Muslims.

  4. For many years everyone has known that Belgium and especially Brussels was a hotbed of Islamist fanatics, yet all those who have warned against this state of affairs have veen labelled “racists”, “undemocratic”, islamophobe”, etc, by the mainly leftist oreintated press and by the politically correct political establishment. For years these politically correct appeasers of terrorism and islamism have maintained the mantra that only a very small percentage of Muslims is radicalized. Yet, since the start of the civil war in Syria, Belgium has been the country with the highest pecrentage of Isis recruits in the entire Eu. Now the fanatics have finally struck Belgium. It is time for these barbarians to be rooted out lock stock and barrel. Wonder if the political establishment will have the courage to do so, instead of conducting a policy of appeasement. I hope so, but at the same time I fear the contrary.

  5. We reap what we sow. Donald Trump is so correct in wanting to halt Muslim entry into the US until and when this sorts itself out. Also anyone who has gone to be indoctrinated should not be allowed back. This is not a game and Obama wanting to allow Muslim migrants into this country must be blocked. We are in a war of survival.

  6. Michelle King You are making your statement up. The Quran is on line in English so you can check it out. There are at least 106 verses in the Quran that call for violence against none Moslems.
    The line that "Islem is the religon of peace" that so many people repeat is not a statement of fact; but is a sarcastic statement .

  7. John Heininger You can take a Muslim from the Middle East or North Africa, but you can't take Islam from a Muslim, end of, they all think the same indoctrinated Koran verses, of hate towards infidels, and world domination. Yes they are all things to an Infidels face, they are taught to be that way, but behind your back and amongst themselves we are nothing but Infidels. Don't be fooled.

  8. Michelle King No Muslim is innocent, until you convert yourself you will not hear what is really said at Friday prayers, and how all the Mulla's are trained to incite and indoctrinate towards violence and death to all Infidels (kaffa). They are all trained in Saudi Arabia, it's world invasion, and domination, nothing less. I have personally known and lived amongst and worked with them in the Middle East, and although friendly, I wouldn't trust anyone of them further than I could throw one ! Wake up to the real world before it's too late. They become suicide bombers to go to the 70+ virgins which await them, being obssessed with sex they go willingly, and the women and girls are forced.

  9. Now, to all you BDS and "Free Palestine" type merchants, I hope you are pleased with yourselves for loosening the reigns for this actual type of personnel – you have no idea what you are condoning, all you think of is giving the finger to Jews and Israel but you are practically pressing the buttons on these suicide vests yourselves in your flag waving on behalf of these barbarians who, at the end of the day are the architects of your own demise – These islamists do not give a toss for peace – all they want is to activate their own blood lust and bring ruin to all the world's economies and towns with killing as many as possible, no matter who is in the way.
    Well, I hope you are satisfied with your day's work so, off you go to give credence to another batch of islamists…

  10. "Little" Mario Rubio is 100% correct when he states that (B. Hussein) "Obama knows exactly what he's doing." Mr. Rubio can say it 1,000 times and he'll still be right. Obama's busy taking selfies in front of the Argentine Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara, one of Obama's cherished heros.

  11. Thank you Basha well said, we have a Muslim in the Oval Office who keep on saying "Muslims R Peaceful" would not call them By their real name Muslim Terrorists and the whole inept wiorld folows his garbage to th letter, and keep on criticizing Israel, May be now the anti Semit EU will think twice before asking Israel to ease down with the blockade and that way PA terrorists can walk in and kill more Jew, they didn't care when Jews were killed every day for the past 4 Mo.

  12. you are right – Israel put up a wall to these bastards and the whole world came down with disapproval but now so many countries are placing walls and fences against the same ilk that this becomes just one argument lost yet there is no defence against stupidity so the seepage of idiocy leaks around the planet tainting all the antisemites and feeding blood to the baying meglomaniacs…
