All of them were fireworks and firecrackers with simple packaging and no protective measures. Moreover, there are many types of fireworks and firecrackers seized this time, in addition to the common small cannons, shattered guns, and long tubular fireworks, as well as larger fireworks, fireworks, etc., which are similar to rockets supported by wooden sticks, and even some the word “DEATH STAR” is written on the fireworks and it seems to show its great power.
