13 Hezbollah members killed in Bir-al Abed bomb , Watan

Share:

beir al-abed blastSaudi Arabian newspaper Al Watan quoted Syrian rebels as claiming that 13 Hezbollah members were killed and another 30 were injured Tuesday when a car bomb exploded in a parking lot at a commercial and residential neighborhood of Bir al-Abed area of Beirut’s Dahiyeh suburb, a stronghold of the Hezbollah militant group. The power of the explosion shattered windows and damaged several cars and buildings in the area.

Hezbollah reportedly cordoned off the area after the explosion took place and refused to allow into the scene of the incident any reporters.

Health Minister Ali Hassan Khalil who represents the Amal Movement in the cabinet announced that 53 people were wounded , none of them were in critical condition and no one was killed .

Amal movement is headed by Speaker Nabih Berri, a key ally of he Syrian regime and Hezbollah

A little known Syrian rebel group called a Liwa’a 313 Brigade, a faction of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), claimed responsibility for the bomb attack.

In a statement in Arabic on Facebook Tuesday, the group lashed out at the Lebanese state, which it said actively assists Hezbollah. It claimed the bombing was a response to Hezbollah participation in the Syrian regime’s ongoing offensive against the city of Homs – a strategically important position and a hub of rebel activity.

“We warned again and again against [Hezbollah’s] intervention in Syria,” the Liwa’a brigade added.

The rebel group also claimed it was behind an attack on a Hezbollah convoy in eastern Lebanon on June 28.

However the mainstream Free Syrian Army condemned the attack in Beirut’s mainly-Shiite southern suburb, describing it as a “terrorist” act.

Hezbollah has openly joined the fight in Syria, and the group’s fighters were instrumental in a recent regime victory when government forces regained control of the strategic town of Qusair near the Lebanese border.

Lebanese President Michel Suleiman urged the Lebanese to refrain from interfering in the Syrian crisis.

“It is important to stop interfering in the Syrian crisis, since Lebanon has no interest in doing so,” Suleiman was quoted on Wednesday by National News Agency as saying .

“Lebanon should not be sacrificed on the altar of democracy for the sake of others.” He added

    None of Hezbushaitan or any other were killed and it was a Hezbushaitan plot to scare the shias in Lebanon who started opposing Hezbushaitan sending shia boys to fight in Syria. This claim is coming from a fantom group call Liwa 420 or 3113.According to the Lebanese authority 53 people were wounded and we have seen many of those wounded people and they never looked like wounded at all. The question is what are these people doing in the parking lot ? Are they all parking their car at the same time? The whole area is cordoned by Hezbushaitan so no one really knows what they did in the parking lot. The whole thing is a deceptive scaremongering technique and now they are trying to verify it from Liwa 420.

    1. I know right , from the beginning I thought its weird how theres lots of damage and yet only few light injuries and no deaths reported

        The 13 HA fighters probably died in Syria and HA wants them to look like they died innocently. This isnt Walmart, theres no way there were 66 people were in or around the small grocery store parking lot.

        1. Well jounalists (apart from Al Manar) were banned from inspecting the place . I mean on the one hand you think they want to hide the number of deaths (come on we know Hezbollah even has their funerals in secret) , but I guess it could also mean they want to hide something that might give away that it was an inside job

            The 13 HA fighters must have died from the aftershock waves. Whats your theory anti?

          2. AntiFSA Avatar

            My theory, I don’t work of theory real. Only facts. I also believe in innocent until proven guilty. Seriously, why would Hezbollah do this, To gain support and put fear in their followers. I don’t think so. On the contrary, this would make their followers more uneasy with Hezbollah’s role in Syria. It just doesn’t make sense.

            Ask yourself real, why does this site only ever broadcast news that is always negative against Hezbollah, Iran, Russia and Syria. This Unbiased site (sarcasm) didn’t even air those 2 poor priest who were beheaded in Homs last week by the terrorist pigs. Why didn’t they, surely that was important enough news to make it on this site. rite. If you are getting your theories and facts from Yalibnan, then my friend all I can say is LOL.

            And other sites too. Btw those 2 poor priests (inshallah) were syrians in syria having nothing to do with Lebanon, unless your in the HA mindset of Lebanon and Syria being one aka the Syrian republic of Lebanon. And not only do I get my information from websites, I also visit Lebanon frequently so I get a first hand account what the people from various sects are saying. And if you dont like this site ( i actually find it for the most part unbiased, so find me an article that is biased) you should check out SANAs website. Im sure its EXTRA biased in your favor.

            Does it really make a difference what country they were from real. They were innocent human beings, Killed by the very people you seem to support. As for Lebanon and Syria being one, look up your history champ. Then you will find out how old Lebanon really is. Now don’t excited and all upset, It just FACTS are FACTS.

  3. If it was an outside job, there would have been some deaths. If it was an inside job, it would have been planned with no deaths. However, it is hard to tell since Hezbaal does not usually reveal its full casualties.
