Hizbullah organized a funeral procession on Thursday for three of its fighters who were killed Wednesday in a blast that hit an ammunition depot in the Bekaa town of Nabi Sheet.

Hizbullah leaders and officials took part in the procession, state-run National News Agency reported.

It identified the three victims as Ali Mustafa Alaeddine and Hasan al-Kheshen, who hail from the Western Bekaa town of Sohmor, and Jaafar al-Moussawi, who hails from Nabi Sheet.

The starting point for the procession was the Dar al-Hekma Hospital in Baalbek.

The party's media relations department said Wednesday that three Hizbullah fighters were killed and several other people wounded in a blast at an old ammunition depot in Nabi Sheet.

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

It added that “efforts are underway to address the incident's consequences in collaboration with the relevant authorities.”

Among the wounded were four Syrian workers, a Lebanese official told Agence France Presse.

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.

Radio Voice of Lebanon (100.5) said a four-story building collapsed due to the explosion.

The 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.

They are very careful in the spelling of this village nabi sheeet. They use the English ee, instead of the french "i"

It is a loong way from the prestigious days of HA, When it liberated the south, kicked israel out... a long way from when HA was the hero of all the arabs...
Today HA became like a graying middle aged man, burdened with the responsibility of running the state, which it is doing with mediocrity, of having to accept a christian as an ally hence throwing to the garbage all its primitive concepts of "islamic state", of having to stoop so low as to fight a war against fellow moslems seeking freedom in syria, and to justify to its "martyr"'s families the sacrifice... burdened by a bankrupt Iran on the verge of a persian spring... burdened by a complete lack of Israeli attacks or other alibis to justify the very exitance of HA..
Now it is also burdened by having to make a maintenance schedule for
its old weapons for them not to explode and create new "martyrs"...
Poor HA... it is not very glorious these days.
Rise chiites... rise... and lobby HA to change...

Hizbcocaine is having a run of bad luck exposing them as the traitorus thugs that they are. Their friends FPM are trying to cover for them with the usual twisted logic.

Sad to say and to their dismay.....those who died will be greeted by Satan and not God!

For their eternity's sake, I surely hope they repented...

If Berri and Hizbullah between them represent the majority of Lebanese, given that the majority of Lebanese are Shiite, what percentage does each claim? It is my impression, on the slightest evidence, really just a vague impression, that Berri speaks for ten percent of Shiites and Hizbullah for ninety percent. That would make Hizbullah by itself the majority government, by itself representing a majority of the Lebanese electorate (assuming there are 56% Shiites). So Ambassador Connolley is warning Miquati to not let the Lebanese public take over the government.

Thumb lebanon_first 04 October 2012, 21:18

wrong analysis buddy. Chiites represent 33% of lebanese and hezb 60% of 33%. that is 20%. But 20% with nothing to loose, ready to fight, and armed to the teeth.

chris, actually the number of suni voters are more than those of che3a's, hizbala is no longer represnting the interests of the she3a community, what is the masla7a of the she3a to be at war with millions of suni syrians?? nothing! it is the masla7a of the crazy fundamentalists in tehran who believe mahdi is coming back on a white horse. Newsflash, no one is coming back and we are the ones living here and we need to live in peace.

What a coincidence, HA fighters die in Syria and the next day an explosion cover up in nabi sheet! when the regime in Syria falls many people will come forward and tell us many more details if who killed hariri and the others in lebanon.
