Lebanese Bomb Blast Aimed at Nasrallah, Kuwaiti News Reports
Last Friday’s bomb blast in Lebanon was aimed at Hizbullah leader Hassam Nasrallah and/or the son of slain terrorist Imad Mughinyeh, different Arab news outlets report.
The Kuwaiti Al Jarida site reported the bomb in a Hizbullah stronghold in a Beirut suburb was intended to kill Nasrallah, according to information allegedly from Israel that the leader of the terrorist army and party was meeting with aides and Samir Kuntar, the child-killer whom Israel freed more than two years ago. Initial reports stated that Kuntar was the intended target.
The sources were not able to confirm whether or not Nasrallah was wounded and that the bomb instead may have injured terrorist commander Mustafa Mughinyeh, whose father and mastermind terrorist Imad Mughinyeh was assassinated in Syria three years ago by Israel.
An official Hizbullah statement claimed that the blast was caused by a gas cylinder and that no one was hurt. After the blast, Hizbullah security forces surrounded the building, which may have been Mughinyeh’s office.
A report by NowLebanon.com indicated it was more likely that the target of the bomb was Mughinyeh, and Israel’s Channel 10 said that one of his bodyguards was killed in the explosion.
Lebanon’s official news agency said one person was seriously wounded.
