Hezbollah discovers two car
bombs in Beqaa, source says

A well-informed source close to Hezbollah revealed that in recent days the party foiled two car bombings in Lebanon’s Beqaa, one in Baalbek and the other in the town of Talya near Baalbek.

 

“The car that was discovered in Baalbak was driven by a Syrian national who admitted that the car targeted a pro-Syrian regime figure who lives in the city,” the source told NOW on Friday.

 

The source also noted that the explosive-laden cars were handed over to the competent Lebanese authorities to follow up on the issue.

 

Hezbollah has been the target of numerous attacks in recent months linked to the crisis in neighboring Syria.

 

A car bomb went off on August 15 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.

The car that was discovered in Baalbak was driven by a Syrian national who admitted that the car targeted a pro-Syrian regime figure who lives in the city.
