وقع انفجار ثان في الضاحية الجنوبية لبيروت بعد 40 يوماً على وقوع انفجار بئر العبد. وقالت قناة المنار التابعة لـ”حزب الله” ان الانفجار الذي وقع في منطقة تقع بين رويس وبئر العبد، ناجم عن انفجار سيارة مفخخة.

وقال أمين عام الصليب الأحمر اللبناني جورج كتاني أن هناك 30 مصاباً وصلوا الى مستشفيي الساحل والرسول الأعظم، مؤكداً وجود 3 قتلى حتى الساعة. وفرض “حزب الله” طوقاً أمنياً في موقع الانفجار حيث تجمهر حشد كبير من المواطنين، وشوهد عدد كبير من السيارات التي تحترق فيما تصاعدت سحب دخان كثيف من المكان.

وطلب وزير الصحة العامة في حكومة تصريف الأعمال علي حسن خليل، “من جميع مستشفيات بيروت وضواحيها، فتح ابواب مستشفياتها أمام مصابي التفجير الارهابي في الضاحية، وتقديم أقصى العناية الطبية لهم”.

A second explosion in the Southern Suburbs of Beirut occurred 40 days after the explosion that happened in Bir al-Abed. al-Manar, a station affiliated with Hezbollah, said that the explosion that occurred in the area located between Royce and Bir al-Abed was caused by a car bomb explosion.

The General Secretary of the Lebanese Red Cross, George Katani, said that there are 30 injured that have come to the hospitals al-Sahel and al-Rusuul al-A’athum, and confirmed there are 3 dead until now. Hezbollah imposed a security cordon in the area of the explosion while a big civilian mob massed, and a large number of cars were seen burning sending thick smoke billowing from the area.

The Public Health Minister requested the care-taker government of Ali Hassan Khalil to ensure “all hospitals in Beirut and it’s suburbs open their doors to the victims of the terrorist bombing and provide them with the maximum of medical care.”
