Explosion Rocks Alleged Hamas Weapons Depot In Southern Lebanon (Videos)

Screen grab from one of the videos showing the blast at Borj El Chmali camp.

Late on December 10, a large blast rocked the Palestinian Borj El Chmali refugee camp near the city of Tyre in Lebanon’s South Governorate.

The Lebanese National News Agency reported that the blast emanated from a weapons depot of the Palestinian Hamas Movement located next to Abi Bin Kaab mosque in the center of the camp. Videos from the scene showed many secondary explosions.

According to the stat-run news agency, a judge had ordered Lebanese security forces to launch an investigation into the blast.

The blast claimed the life of a man, an alleged member of Hamas, and wounded around a dozen other people including two Lebanese first responders.

In a statement released on December 11, Hamas said that the blast was caused by an electrical fault in a warehouse containing oxygen and gas cylinders for coronavirus patients, as well as detergents and disinfectants.

“The news that was circulated about the causes of the accident, and the death of dozens of people, are fabricated and baseless,” the statement reads.

Palestinian armed factions maintain control over roughly a dozen Palestinian camps in Lebanon, which the country’s authorities by custom do not enter.

Despite Hamas denial, there is a strong possibility that the blast really emanated from a weapons depot of the group. If this was indeed the case, the Israeli intelligence, which is known to be very active in Lebanon, may have been behind the blast.

You guys will never admit anything because you know we’ll burn israel to the ground

You Jews still bitch about being victims, you fucking pussies. You guys have every superpower funding you, and you still had to watch Hezbollah become the strongest militia in the world, and you bitches were too scared to stop us

Jnoub

But who was it who request the 48 hour cease fire during the 14 days of the war? Sure wasn’t Hezbollah, it was Israel crying to America. You guys had enough man power, you guys had 90k troops waiting to go in bint jbeil, but your “elite” units got their asses kicked. As for time, you guys own the UN, you guys had all the time in the world but you guys decided to tap out.
