A large explosion rocked a Hezbollah stronghold in the city of Tyre on the southern Lebanese coast late on Tuesday night, Lebanon newspaper The Daily Star reported on Wednesday.
The Daily Star quoted local media as saying the explosion took place at a Hezbollah arms cache. A Lebanese security source did not confirm the media reports, saying the cause of the blast could not be determined due to Hezbollah security’s closure of the area. (…)
Lebanese security forces were prevented from investigating the blast by Hezbollah.
The circumstances behind the blast were unclear, but DPA cited some Lebanese newspapers as saying that a small bomb or hand grenade could have been the cause of the blast.
