Hezbollah blames Israel for blast in south Lebanon
An explosive device blew up Tuesday in an ambulance of the Lebanese Hezbollah movement near the border with Israel, seriously injuring the driver, police said.
Jihad Halaweh was struck in the stomach and feet when the device exploded as he turned on the ignition of the ambulance, which was parked on the main square of Kfarkilla in southern Lebanon, the sources said, cited by AFP.
The ambulance, bearing the insignia of Hezbollah's health services, was badly damaged as well.
Hezbollah issued a statement to blame Israel for the explosion, saying it was part of, "the repeated aggressions mounted by the Zionist enemy against Lebanon, its people, its water and its right". (Albawaba.com)
