Hezbollah Neighborhood In Beirut Hit By Massive Car Bomb

ICEJ, 9 July 2013

Dozens of people were wounded on Tuesday when a massive car bomb hit the Bir al-Abed neighborhood of Beirut, known to be a stronghold the Shi’ite terror militia Hezbollah, the most dramatic evidence yet that the civil war in neighboring Syria is spilling over into its smaller Western neighbor.

"This is the work of agents trying to create strife in Lebanon," said Hezbollah parliamentary deputy Ali Meqdad.

Interior Minister Marwan Charbel agreed, saying the attack was "a criminal act aimed at destabilizing the country and creating Sunni-Shi'ite sectarian strife."

"They want to terrorize us, the scumbags," said Abu Ali, who lives in the neighborhood.

"These terrorists want us to abandon (the leader of Hezbollah) but we swear we will love him more, for all our lives.

All we own, and our children we pledge to him."
