Two weeks ago, another car bomb exploded in the same region and claimed the lives of four people. Only one week later, a strong explosion struck Hezbollah stronghold in south-east Beirut. Two people were killed and dozens were injured in the event.
Site of blast in Lebanon
In recent months, since Hezbollah announced its intentions to send out additional troops into Syria
to aid President Bashar Assad's
regime, several harsh attacks struck Lebanon.
Dozens of people were killed and hundreds were injured in these attacks, which according to estimates were carried out by Sunni organizations as revenge for Hezbollah's involvement in the Syrian civil war.
