15 INJURED IN FRESH SUICIDE ATTACK IN LEBANON’S BORDER TOWN

BEIRUT, Lebanon- At least 15 people were injured, in a suicide bomb attack in Lebanon’s north-eastern border town of al-Qaa, Monday night, hours after four suicide bombings had killed five people in the same place.

The two bombers were on a motorcycle and blew themselves up, outside Mar Elias Church, near the Municipality building, the report said.

Meanwhile, media outlets reported more blasts in the town, but no confirmation is made, so far.

The blasts only caused injuries according to preliminary information, said George Ketteneh, the Lebanese Red Cross Director of Operations, to LBCI TV.

Reports said, the bombers struck during a sit-in, organised in the town and amidst funeral preparations at the church, for victims of the attack earlier in the day.

Four suicide bombers had detonated their explosive belts in the town about 18 hours earlier, killing five people and wounding 15 others.

Security forces have called on residents to remain indoors and not to gather around the attack site to avoid new attacks.

The Lebanese Army confirmed the attack in a statement, saying, several suicide bombers struck Al-Qaa “which led to a number of casualties among citizens.”
