Clashes in Beirut on Thursday led to the deaths of three members of Hezbollah.
After Beirut explosion, Hezbollah’s Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah denies the group was responsible for the tragedy.
Two hours before an attack on the headquarters of Banque du Liban et d’Outre-Mer in Beirut, Hezbollah hinted at an attack from “Lahad’s Banking Army,” warning against Lebanon’s Central Bank to back down from their application of U.S. financial sanctions or face potential violence. Sunday’s attack was a first volley, with greater bloodshed possible.
The Abdullah Azzam Brigades, an al Qaeda-linked group, has claimed responsibility for twin suicide attacks on the Iranian embassy in Beirut.
