Molotov Cocktail Attack in ABC Parking Lot in Dbayeh

A Molotov cocktail exploded on Friday in the parking lot of ABC mall in Dbayeh, north of Beirut, creating a small crater but causing no major damage, the National News Agency reported.

NNA said the petrol bomb exploded at 9:45 am.

A military expert, who inspected the scene, said the bomb caused a 10-centimeter-deep and a five-centimeter-wide crater, the agency added.

Security forces inspected security cameras installed in the area to identify the assailants.

But ABC’s management announced in a press release that “there has been no explosion in the parking lot of Dbayeh mall as stated this morning in the press.”

“The explosion happened in the morning hours on a side road away from the mall that was not affected,” it said.

“ABC Dbayeh mall opened at 10:00 am and is currently resuming normal activity,” the statement added.
