4 Dead, Several Hurt in Suicide Car Blast in al-Nabi Othman

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

A suicide car bomb attack killed four people and wounded several others late Sunday in the Bekaa town of al-Nabi Othman, state-run National News Agency reported.

“Hizbullah members knew he was about to carry out the attack, and tried to stop the vehicle. That was when the attacker detonated the vehicle," a Lebanese security source told Agence France Presse.

“The martyrs Abdul Rahman al-Qadi who hails from al-Ain and Khalil Khalil who hails from al-Fakiha detected a suspicious Grand Cherokee, so they chased it and asked its driver to stop, which prompted him to blow it up,” NNA said.

The explosion killed al-Qadi, Khalil as well as al-Nabi Othman residents Wahida Nazha and Ali Hussein Nazha and left several people wounded, the agency added.

A group calling itself the Baalbek Ahrar al-Sunna Brigade claimed responsibility on Twitter for the bombing.

"Prepare for the transfer of the battle of Yabrud into Lebanese territory," it said.

For its part, al-Nusra Front in Lebanon claimed responsibility for the attack on Twitter, describing it as "a quick response to Iran party's bluster following its extortion of the town of Yabrud."

The attack comes hours after the Syrian army backed by Hizbullah fighters captured Yabrud, a former rebel bastion in Syria near the Lebanese border.

Hizbullah and Lebanese security forces have said many of the car bombs used in previous suicide car bombings originated in Yabrud.

The Lebanese Red Cross said the attack took place near a gas station.

A witness told LBCI TV said “the suicide bomber blew up the bomb-laden car which came from Wadi Rafeq (in Arsal's outskirts) when he was detected by members of a local party.”

Meanwhile, al-Jadeed television said Hizbullah's top official in the town of al-Ain A. Q. was killed in the bombing.

Hizbullah-dominated areas in eastern Lebanon and Beirut's southern suburbs have suffered a series of deadly attacks, many of them suicide car blasts, since the group acknowledged sending fighters into Syria.

how sad......

Thumb .mowaten. 17 March 2014, 00:03

keep whining losers. those two heroes knew there was a bomb in that car, and yet they went after it. they gave their lives knowingly to protect innocents. sad that still two residents died, but one can easily imagine what it would have been if the terrorist had had the liberty of choosing a time and place with more people.

no words or amount of hate you can spew can ever take away or even scratch the surface of the honor and sense of sacrifice these two men demonstrated.

Of course now we have to fight the takfiri, and even if they are occuring in hezbollah ladden area those are still lebanese, who do u think u are i was in lebanese ref cross during 2006 war, but that was for lebanon, not for a dictator who is with his familly regime elected democraticaly with more than 98% of votes and brought that much sufferance to my country and to syria...
No i didnot wanted to be dragged in that war spreadding from irak to yemen.. But thanks to hezbollah now we have to deal with it....

Brain washed sick people. Those who think "heroes died in the blast" must also wish the dead were his own children, mother, father, wife, etc.

all i hear is loser talk and wishful thinking. nusra/qaeda started establishing a presence in lebanon as soon as the syrian "revolution"started. ghosn warned about him, but all m14 did was plunge their heads in the sand hoping the hordes would just vanish if they bent over really low. oh and they played the offended card very loud (http://www.naharnet.com/stories/en/23982)...
HA's intervention saved lebanon, you probably know it, you cant be so dumb as to not see the obvious, but you're just too hateful and spiteful to admit it. whine whine whine, and a great deal of passive inaction, that's all you got.

My familly fought with the patriotic front of national lebanese resistance, i never was in any political party in particular, liked aoun for a while, was in the red cross in 2006 war, but in anyway i never bended over to anybody maybe it is of ur customes...
But eennif i was not, even if i thought i am a phenician, or a socialist, or a communist, or just a simple lebanese i never asked to be a part of the ongoing regional sunni/shia iraki/da3ech/nusra style....

But now no one asked them to go to syria... Back then south lebanon was a national matter, patriotic fromnt idf the national liberation, jumblat,communists shia, sunites...LEBANESE LAND to be liberated, not a dictator from a family of dictators rulling suria democratically wyth each elections more than 98% after all we suffered from syria after all syrian people suffered from those regime and this familly.. (Syrian political opponents like ryad el turc a communist, not takfiri was keept in jail for 18 years for having another political opinion while takfiri like shaker el abssi were released....
Man go have chupachups....

only an ignorant american would think the first terrorist bombing was in 83 in lebanon. and yes, it was full of CIA, by the US's own admissions.

Thumb .mowaten. 17 March 2014, 23:42

first i never said it is full of spies, you did, out of nowhere (as usual)
second, iran is a friendly country, that never attacked, bombed or harmed us, but rather armed us and helped us liberate our land. whereas the US was bombing us (through their israeli subsidiary that they armed to the teeth and gave full cover to).
third and last, we were in a state of total war, and in no position to take half measures.

One thing is attacking Israelis and US marines, but targeting civilian areas is a whole other case American, you Americans knows all about that with your drone attacks right?

If I recall correctly about 50 Lebanese civilians were killed in the US embassy bombing.
Here is a heroic deed being done by an Iranian Terrorist on Lebanese soil:
The Bombings: Sunday, October 23, 1983. At around 06:22, a 19-ton yellow Mercedes-Benz stake-bed truck drove to the Beirut International Airport (BIA),The suicide bomber, an Iranian national named Ismail Ascari,[13][14] detonated his explosives, which were later estimated to be equivalent to approximately 9,525 kilograms (21,000 pounds) of TNT.

And M8 sheeple have the audacity to call KSA's $3B donation to the LAF an interferemce.

It is true that the SAA lacked guerilla warfare training, in the beginning of the crisis, but now it is a well prepared Army, they have now experience in rural aswell as urban warfare. The SAA despite their losses, are 10 times stronger than before the conflict.
