Hamas Official Reportedly Wounded in Car Bomb Blast in Lebanon

Lebanese

According to AFP citing medical sources, a BMW detonated when Hamdan opened a door to the vehicle.

A auto bomb explosion in the southern Lebanese city of Sidon has slightly wounded a member of Hamas, according to the Palestinian group, which blamed Israel for the assassination attempt.

Hamas command committee member, Ayman Shanaa said that Mohammad Hamdan, who is also called "Abu Hamza" was transferred to hospital, noting that his injuries were minor.

Firefighters arrived to put out the flames and Lebanese security forces quickly cordoned off the area.


"The blast wounded his leg, destroyed his vehicle and damaged the building", Hamas' Lebanon branch said in a statement.

Local media reported that Hamas had released a statement denying that any of its officials had been killed in the attack.

According to a medical source at the scene, Hamdan suffered serious wounds to his legs while opening the door to his vehicle and was undergoing surgery.

Sidon is home to two of the 12 Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon.
