A Lebanese media outlet reported: "The same neighborhood in which blood was spilled celebrated the 'wedding of all weddings' with fireworks, distribution of sweets, flowers and butterflies that were flying around the entire area to emphasize that life carries on in the heart of destruction."
The happy couple was accompanied by several Dahiyeh residents who tossed flowers at them and chanted calls to support Hezbollah and fight "heretical organizations". The yellow Chevrolet that drove the couple was decorated with flowers. After a tour of the neighborhood, the couple flew a white dove into the air.
The attack took place not far from a site from which Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah made a rare public appearance from in honor of the Al-Quds Day.
Arabic media reported during the weekend that Lebanese security forces arrested several suspects related to the deadly attack.
Nasrallah addressed the attack on Friday, in a speech marking the "anniversary of the victory" of the Second Lebanon War. He estimated that those who stand behind the attack are radical Sunni organizations affiliated with al-Qaeda and Syrian rebels, and claimed that these organizations are working for Israel and the United States.
