Bomb found near Lebanese University in Tripoli


lebanese army, tripoliThe Lebanese army defused on Monday dynamite sticks at the science faculty of the Lebanese University in al-Qobbeh area of the northern city of Tripoli, the state-run National News Agency reported.

The army found inside the campus 400 grams of dynamite sticks that were rigged to explode, NNA said.

The soldiers immediately defused them and seized them, the agency added.

MTV said there would have been a disaster had the sticks of dynamite exploded.

Tripoli has been engulfed in the past 12 days in deadly clashes between supporters of Syrian President Bashar Assad and residents who back the uprising against him.

The city has seen intense sectarian clashes since the war in Syria erupted three years ago, with gunmen from the Sunni district of Bab al-Tabbaneh battling fighters in the Alawite area of Jabal Mohsen.

  1. Quick, let the blame game begin. On behalf of the terrorists supporters, I say it was either an Alawite or Shite who planned the bomb.

    1. I love when I’m right.

        I’d guess your clue was that it was near a University, maybe teaching some logic. Right?

        1. Unfortunately 5th your wrong. Keep trying however. With a bit of perseverance, you’ll get there. -:)))

    No an alawite or shite would never do something like that.

    “Michel Samaha, an ally of Syria, has admitted to a role in a plot to carry out attacks in Lebanon and was caught on a video saying Syrian President Bashar al-Assad “wants” this”.

    But of course that must be a false confession coz shites r peace loving people who only carry more weapons than the state to “resist” becoming terrorists.
