3 Hizbullah Fighters Die in Blast at 'Old Ammo Depot' in Bekaa's Nabi Sheet

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Three Hizbullah fighters were killed and several other people wounded on Wednesday in a blast at a depot for old ammunition in the Bekaa town of Nabi Sheet, the party's media relations department said in a statement.

“The blast happened at a storehouse for old shells and ammunition and the remnants of the Israeli attacks on the area,” said the statement.

“This tragic explosion left three of our jihadist brothers martyred and several other people wounded,” Hizbullah added, noting that “efforts are underway to address the incident's consequences in collaboration with the relevant authorities.”

Earlier on Wednesday, a Lebanese security official told Agence France Presse that at least nine people were killed and seven injured in the blasts, but Radio Voice of Lebanon (93.3) said the death toll was revised to three after some missing persons who were counted as dead turned out to be alive.

Among the wounded were four Syrian workers, the official told AFP.

Residents said the blasts hit an arms stockpile in a building under construction in an uninhabited area between the villages of Nabi Sheet and Khodr.

Dozens of ambulances arrived at the scene as members of Hizbullah surrounded the area, the residents told AFP.

Citing "several explosions," the security official, speaking on condition of anonymity, did not confirm the origin of the blasts.

MTV reported that Hizbullah members were cordoning off the site of the blast and preventing security forces from entering the area.

Radio Voice of Lebanon (100.5) said a four-story building collapsed due to the explosion, quoting witnesses as saying that a number of bodies were still beneath the debris.

State-run National News Agency said three explosions were heard in the mountainous region between Nabi Sheet and al-Khraiba.

The agency said that the house of Mohammed Ali al-Moussawi collapsed from the force of the blast.

And again Hizb saying that it is above the state by cordoning off the area--what kind of 'resistance' is this except to the laws of the state.

..."reported that Hizbullah members had cordoned off the area and prevented security forces from approaching the location." WTF? To prevent security forces to enter? Who do they think they are? They are above the law? This clearly shows that these filthy scums indeed carried out a coup and took over Lebanon back in January 2011. The country needs to unite and drive them out - period!

Yet, its kinda funny You won't see any of those Useless BUGS that comes here commenting on how great the HizbAllah and The Resistance is when it comes to an article like this one in here... Shameful Rats! But not to Worry for the 7 dead people. They are "SHOUHADA2 El MouKawama" .... Tomorrow They will be declared in the funeral, cos of course, there will be the excuse of an outsider sabotaging the peace of Lebanon... For example "Israel"

Hopefully. the first of many such explosions.
Forget how they dare cordon off the area, but how dare the security forces not force their way in? Isn't it time that the Lenanese army finally shows these..........who is the boss in Lebanon.

"Among the wounded were four Syrian workers, the official added."

So that's what they are calling them nowadays...Syrian workers.

Their weapons have created more divisions amongst the Lebanese, have caused more destruction in the past 10 Years than anything else, and caused more tension , fear , lawlessness, and intimidation. Their false notion of resistance is bogus.
It's time that they joined the civilized world, believed in one state establishment.
Giving up their arms to the army will unite the country more than anything else.
It takes incredible courage , humility. Humbleness, and trust and faith to do that,.

It is criminal and irresponsible to store ammunition in inhabited areas.
