Lebanon: car bomb rocks Hezbollah stronghold as Ramadan begins

Lebanon: car bomb rocks Hezbollah stronghold as Ramadan begins




A car bomb has exploded in a Hezbollah-controlled suburb of the Lebanese capital Beirut, wounding at least 18 people. It took place in a car park in a busy shopping area of the Bir al-Abed district – as Lebanese Shiites prepared for the start of the holy month of Ramadan. There are fears that several people have been killed by the powerful blast, but initial reports of deaths have not been confirmed by the authorities. No one has claimed responsibility for the bomb. Ali Ammar, a Hezbollah deputy in Lebanon’s parliament told local journalists that Israel is likely to blame. Long-running sectarian tensions in Lebanon have been escalating, partly due to the conflict in neighbouring Syria. Hezbollah has intervened there, sending troops to support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces. The area is also home to many Hezbollah political offices. Shopping areas would likely have been full on Tuesday, the day before the Islamic holy month of Ramadan begins. “This is the work of agents trying to create strife in Lebanon,” said Hezbollah parliamentary deputy Ali Meqdad at the site of the explosion. Interior Minister Marwan Charbel said it was “a criminal act aimed at destabilising the country and creating Sunni-Shi’ite sectarian strife”. The attack is the second strike to hit Shi’ite southern Beirut this year. Two rockets hit the area in May and Lebanese security forces have disarmed several rockets near Beirut in recent months as well. It was unclear who was behind Tuesday’s blast or May’s attack.
