Western Countries Condemn Dahr al-Baydar Bombing

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Western countries decried on Friday the Dahr al-Baydar suicide bombing that targeted an Internal Security Forces checkpoint which killed one and injured several.

The U.S. embassy in Beirut condemned the attack on its twitter account reiterating “support to Lebanon in its fight against terrorism.”

On its part, the French Embassy in Lebanon advised its resident nationals to limit their movements on Lebanon's territory.

A suicide bombing on Friday targeted an ISF checkpoint in Dahr al-Baydar.

General Security chief Maj. Gen. Abbas Ibrahim had driven past the site of the explosion in his convoy shortly before the blast.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

The attack also coincided with a series of raids in the Lebanese capital following reports of a plot to target security posts.

The last explosion to hit Lebanon occurred on March 29, when a suicide bomber in an explosives-laden car targeted a Lebanese army checkpoint near the Syrian border, killing three people. Earlier in the year, a series of car bombs struck Shiite areas across Lebanon, killing and wounding hundreds of people.

Hard-line Sunni groups have claimed responsibility for those killings, saying they are meant to punish Hizbullah for supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad.

no real evidence in there. Even so, 5000 da3shis cant take half the country. All sunnis are revolting against Maliki's and Qassem Sulaymeni's death squads and sectarian cleansing.
Ever heard about Ali Musa Daqduq ? He was officially released by americans. What do u conclude ?

Listen to analysis from a real LAF general :

“We either arrested or killed a man of that name about half a dozen times, he is like a wraith who keeps reappearing, and I am not sure where fact and fiction meet,” said Lieutenant-General Sir Graeme Lamb, a former British special forces commander who helped US efforts against al-Qaeda in Iraq. “There are those who want to promote the idea that this man is invincible, when it may actually be several people using the same nom de guerre.”
