The ammonium nitrate remained at the port for years because “it was being siphoned off for military purposes” by Hezb’Allah.

Hezbollah was taking Beirut ammonium nitrate to produce weapons: Source
By Al Arabiya, August 13, 2020:
Hezbollah had been slowly siphoning off the ammonium nitrate that was stored in the port and ignited in a deadly blast in Beirut to manufacture missiles and rockets, according to a security source and a source close to the organization.

“Lebanese security services also received American warnings from US envoy David Satterfield about the existence of two missile assembly plants, in South Lebanon and the Bekaa,” added the high security source, who explained that weapon shipments were transferred on regular basis into Lebanon via the port as well as over the country’s land borders.
