1. Perhaps ....

.... we need to look a little more closely at the Belgian manufacturer. Corrosive substances must be stored in containers that are sufficient to the task. The article implies that the tanks were stored as they came from the manufacturer; they were not transferred to a larger containment tank. I'm not suggesting deliberate malfeasance -- well, let's just find out a little more about the manufacturer, first. It wouldn't hurt to learn who at the manufacturer's facility knew that the cargo was destined for Israel. Who knew if certain tanks were not suitable for use, but may have used them anyway. Things like that. It won't hurt to find out, will it?
2. Did anyone check?
