Charbel: More attacks
might target Lebanon

Caretaker Interior Minister Marwan Charbel voiced his fear that further car bombs might target various regions in Lebanon, especially after the twin explosions that targeted Tripoli on Friday and the one that rocked the Beirut area of Dahiyeh last week.

 

“There might be explosions in other Lebanese regions [too],” Charbel told Kuwaiti newspaper As-Seyassah.

 

“There are difficulties that are preventing [us] from providing enough security to all Lebanese regions.”

 

The minister also said that “those who are behind the explosion in Dahiyeh are the same who planted the car bombs in Tripoli.”

 

“There is no country in the whole world that can protect its security entirely,” he added.

 

Two explosions rocked the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli on Friday afternoon, leaving at least 42 people dead.

 

The explosions took place outside the Al-Taqwa Mosque in the city's Al-Zahiriya area and the Al-Salam Mosque in the Al-Mina neighborhood.

 

Also, a car bomb went off last week on the main road between the Al-Roueiss and Bir al-Abed areas of Hezbollah’s Beirut stronghold of Dahiyeh, leaving 22 people dead and at least 200 injured.

Those who are behind the explosion in Dahiyeh are the same who planted the car bombs in Tripoli.
