Beirut Hit By Car Bombing, 53 Wounded

Before It’s News – by Mort Amsel

A massive car bomb blast shook a stronghold of Lebanese Shi’ite Hezbollah militant group Hezbollah in southern Beirut on Tuesday, leaving at least 37 people wounded, the Lebanese Red Cross said.

Lebanese security sources told Reuters that they were unable to confirm initial reports from medics at the scene that an unspecified number had been killed in the blast.  

This is no doubt the work of FSA rebels in Syria.  Maybe even radical Lebanese cleric al-Assir whose mosque and compund was raided by the Lebanese military after his fighters attacked a LAF checkpoint. Dozens of soldiers and militants were killed in the 3 day operation that followed. -Mort
