At least 14 people were killed and 212 others wounded in a car bombing that rocked Hizbullah's stronghold in Beirut's southern suburbs on Thursday, state-run National News Agency reported.

The blast went off on the public road between Bir al-Abed and Ruwais, according to several television channels.

"There are at least six killed and a large number of wounded," a military source told Agence France Presse on condition of anonymity.

Lebanese Red Cross director Georges Kittani said more than 100 people were wounded.

But NNA said 10 bodies were transported to the Sahel Hospital and four others to the Great Prophet Hospital, while 100 wounded people were rushed to the Great Prophet Hospital, 50 to Bahman Hospital and 20 others to al-Bourj Hospital.

"According to the interior ministry, the blast was caused by a car bomb," MTV reported.

"The human remains found 10 meters from the blast location might be those of a suicide bomber," al-Manar television said.

Live TV footage showed burning cars and pillars of black smoke bellowing from the blast scene.

“Gunfire was heard in the vicinity of the blast scene,” al-Jadeed television reported.

“The blast went off near Mahfouz Stores in Ruwais,” OTV reported, as MTV said the explosion took place "under a bridge facing the Harkous Chicken Restaurant."

Al-Mayadeen television said a security cordon was imposed around the location.

According to MTV, the bomb weighed between 60 and 80 kilograms of explosives.

Media reports said a large number of families were still trapped inside the burning buildings in the area.

Later on Thursday, a group calling itself the Brigades of Aisha Umm al-Moemeneen claimed the bombing in a YouTube video and threatened further attacks.

The video -- which surfaced shortly after news of the attack broke -- shows three masked men, two of them holding rifles, in front of a white flag inscribed with the Islamic profession of faith.

"We... send a message to (Hizbullah chief Sayyed) Hassan Nasrallah's pigs," said one of the men, wearing a white mask.

On July 9, a booby-trapped car exploded at a parking lot in Bir al-Abed, leaving 53 people wounded and causing extensive material damage.

In May, two rockets slammed into the Beirut southern suburb of Shiyyah, wounding four people.

Apparently Reuters has said there are 9 dead.

Also, anyone know why it's only Al-Manar covering this an no local agencies? It's been the same clip playing over and over again.

Well, it's plausible and it shouldn't be ruled out.

The Lebanese Chabiha do torture, kill and desecrate Syrian kids. When you witness such behaviour, blowing up a few of their own to reboost the sinking popularity is credible.
Anyway, we won't forget they were giving away baklavas after blowing up prime minister Hariri, Pierre Gemayel, and our other pure Lebanese martyrs.

Thumb _mowaten_ 15 August 2013, 20:01

not only is it completely improbable when you know HA and the rules they respect, but it's completely unnecessary (they already have immense popularity among their supporters) but it's counter-productive (harms their image and challenges their ability to protect the people, which is their fundamental mission).

oh and about the baklava story, everybody already knows it never happened and is pure propaganda inventions, so i'm not sure that shamelessly lying supports your point.

As much as you try to portray me as anti shia will never work.

the average Lebanese living in dahyeh supports this Iranian terrorist militia and they are the reason this terrorist militia is able to do all the killings, stealing, bombings and terrorist acts.
since they identify with this terrorist militia, I consider they are not my problem.

So then, can anyone tell me what people in Lebanon should be feeling about this?

I mean, security is known to be a problem but people generally live with it. To see (as proclaimed by many) the "most secure" of places being victim to terrorism, can anyone reassure the people that this won't spread elsewhere and that the security situation for Lebanese other than in HA strongholds isn't planned to be the same?

We've seen lots of bombs and such being apprehended by security forces in Arsal and other places, and I think people would agree there are more explosives in circulation than those that were captured; is this now a national security issue like we've seen in the bast or just 'warnings' to HA?

Despicable act of terrorism, targeting residential areas.

From both sides of the aisle, the educated and moral people should condemn these kind of acts of terror because at the end, the normal citizen is just powerless and innocent, even if they support this party or the other. In a nutshell, maybe a little baby was present there, would u still be talking the same way.

this is not blowback, this is merely a continuation.

Was it not in Dahiyé that bacclawa was distributed when one of the many M14 leaders killed. Was it not on NBN that the news speaker wished live that Fatfat got killed after the news that Eido got booby trapped killed.
Of course this bombing today is a terrorist act and is condemnable. It could be Israel, but more likely from Syria as the lebanese authorities have been warned that big quantities of explosives have entered Lebanon at the hand of Islamists.
If this is happening today it's due to the policy of HA especially its involvement in Syria and hostility to the sunni in general.

Thumb _mowaten_ 16 August 2013, 10:31

Forgiveness and love is what breathes life.

The ME needs the philosophy of Jesus Christ!

to think that in this day and age, people still resort to this kind of violence, and expect change to take place, is baffling. This is our problem, we are not united as a people. We are sheep. We don't think for ourselves and we don't come to our own conclusions. Each and every one of us is on edge, we are stressed, full of angst, and hate for one another. In the year 2013, aren't we tired of this? Don't we want peace? Don't we want a stable functional country, with a government that actually cares about the well-being of their people, their supporters, and their country? If this segregation continues, and we don't open our eyes and unite as one country, and not as 4 religions, and counting... nothing will ever change. In the year 2013, corruption is the only driving power that truly unites, and defines Lebanon. It is shameful. You can all attack me now...

While we are at it, what does H.A. know about running the business of a country, its civil institutions, economy, commerce, etc.? You're telling me that they are learning from the Persians, or brought their experiences from their dealings in South African Countries? I like to see how far Iran can advance minus all the money they generate from selling their nature resources. So, these are your idols?

Cui bono "to whose benefit?", literally "as a benefit to whom?" is a Latin saying which is still used.

It is a Latin adage that is used either to suggest a hidden motive or to indicate that the party responsible for something may not be who it appears at first to be.

He's a dead man walking and that's why he hides under a rock.

You mean unlike the bearded monkeys of hezballah and shiites?

Yes look at Syria where bashars dogs (military or shabbi7a militia) make up more than half of the dead and look at iraq where shia are being killed by the hundreds a week. In egypt you are correct though but had hezballah tried to set up a party in egypt, they would be genocided as well by the egyptian military who hates iran. So whats your point exactly? death, genocide, destruction but only against muslims but somehow shiites wont be affected by what you are calling for? The world hates your God bashar mind you.

Call for peace instead of genocide. Stop supporting hezballah if you are sincere and not a ten faced taqiya liar. Show some respect to the innocents who were harmed today instead of threatning genocide.

In all these comments, not one person said RIP to those who died! All you care about is who to blame.
I wish I could see Lebanon united against such cruelty, but no all I see is hatered.
Until the Lebanese and decide they are more important than their leaders, these people had died in vein. RIP.

Default-user-icon trueself (Guest) 16 August 2013, 00:38

My heart is bleeding for all the innocent people that are dying unnecessarily. This also reminds me of the war in Lebanon where many innocent people died while going to work or walking on the streets. HA should have known that its involvement in Syria will not be kept without retaliation from the Syrian free army or the Sunnis that support them in Lebanon. HA should understand that he's immediately called upon to stop involving itself in the war in Syria and killing the innocent Syrian people. This is a vicious cycle where only the innocent people pay its price. I hope this madness stops one day and we all go back to our senses and work hard to rebuild our economy instead of going on in supporting an endless war that has no beginning and no end. If this is not possible, maybe Lebanon could be partitioned and every party takes a part and start norishing it.

Hizbullah has learned a lesson, it is nowhere safe even in beirut.
Mr Nasrallah will be forced to dig a little deeper because the Shia Sunni animosity is much more corrosive than his resentment towards the enemy on the southern border.

Missing bigjohn 16 August 2013, 07:17

well this is what you would like Ehud, but the Israel remains the number one enemy of all LEBANESE "smarty" that is why ALL Lebanese Sunni leaders denounced this attack and blamed the Israeli terrorist state!

Missing cedars 16 August 2013, 05:28

The rockets were missing their targets, so they sent you a package in a car as they promised on public TV when the Syrians were attacked and you were dancing in the streets of Qusayr. You were told to disassociate but as in 2006 you acted above the state or I should say forgot the People-Army-Resistance equation and acted based on the Iran-Syria-Resistance equation.

Missing bigjohn 16 August 2013, 07:13

Those who are blaming the attack on HA military interference in Syria I just have one question. When Al qaeda bombed New York on 9/11, did you blame the US for their imperial war in Iraq (and the rest of the war) that has killed millions of innocent civilians? If not, then you are nothing but a collaborator for the Zionist American Israeli enemy!

Missing bigjohn 16 August 2013, 07:45

This attack was done by an covert underground group who is in hiding (whether it is the Israelis or a Sunni extremist group). HA has nobody to go after in Lebanon. These types of attacks against civilian buildings started in Iraq against the Shiite, then Syria, and now Lebanon. This attack is exactly what Nasralla has warned against the Takfiris, which is why he has been justifying his intervention in Syria.
