Large explosion hits Hezbollah stronghold sending black smoke billowing into sky; at least 38 people wounded. Al-Manar TV says blast was car bomb.The follow-up is nothing extraordinary too:
Ali Ammar, an MP from the Lebanese Hezbollah party accused Israel of responsibility for the bombing of the Dahiya district of Beirut. "There is a clear fingerprint of Israel and its instruments in this dastardly deed," said the MP.The more likely culprits of the deed hastily confessed:
A senior official in the Free Syria Army, Bassam a-Dada, told a Lebanese news website that the blast in the Hezbollah stronghold in Beirut was performed by Syrian rebels.But then, most probably, after reading the Hezballoon's communique, they have quickly said "uhu..." to themselves:
A Free Syria Army (FSA) spokesperson, Louay Almokdad, claimed the Syrian rebels are not responsible for the car bomb in the Hezbollah stronghold in southern Beirut.Nope, nothing new in the Middle East. Predictable as the local weather this time of the year...
