‘zionist israel explosive’ goes off in Lebanon

The Lebanese Army has reported a blast in the south of the country, which it suspects has been caused by the explosion of an israeli cluster bomb or landmine, Press TV reports.

The Army dispatched a unit to the vicinity of the Siddiqin village, where the incident took place late on Tuesday, a Press TV correspondent reported.

“Probably, what happened was a result of a mine or cluster bomb possibly dropped by israel [in its 2006 war on Lebanon] exploding,” the forces said in a statement on Wednesday.

The most tragic incident took place in the village of Qana, 12 kilometers (7.5 miles) north of the border with israel, where israeli warplanes bombed a residential building, killing large numbers of children.

The Lebanese resistance movement of Hezbollah’s fighters fought off the 33-Day War, preventing tel aviv from achieving any of its objectives.

The offensives, however, killed about 1,200 Lebanese, most of them civilians. The most tragic incident took place in the village of Qana, 12 kilometers (7.5 miles) north of the country’s border with Israel, where israeli warplanes bombed a residential building, killing large numbers of children.
