Powerful Blast Hits Haret Hreik
Local Editor

A powerful explosion rocked on Tuesday Beirut's Dahyieh for the second time this month, leaving at least four people martyred.


Al-Manar TV reported that the blast was due to a suicide bomber in a booby trapped white Kia with the license plate G347527 exploded.


TV footage showed black smoke rising from the area of the explosion.


Firefighters rushed to the district to douse a fire that engulfed several cars and gutted the facade of a residential building in the busy al-Arid commercial street.


Ambulances, their sirens wailing, also transported the wounded to hospitals in the region.


Speaking to Lebanese channel al-Manar TV, the Lebanese health minister Ali Hassan Khalil stated: "This attack has killed at least two people, and injured 26."

"There isn't much we can do about such attacks and they seek to sow fear," he added.
