Explosion near Horsh Tabet

Taken on 19 Sep 2007, by me from work
At around 5:20pm, an explosion occured in approximity of Horsh Tabet, near Rond Point Al Hayek, no news available yet.

I heard and saw the explosion from my work, it seems it is in a residential area.

Update (6:30pm): 6 casualties and many wounded in this explosion. The explosion was targetting the convoy of Member of Parliament Antoine Ghanem, a member of the Phalange Party. The explosion caused a massive fire. It happened in Northern Matn, in Sin El Fil, near Al Hayeh roundabout.

The explosion and assassination came 3 months after the last one which killed MP Waleed Eido and his son, and a week before the parliament session whose President Nabih Berri called for, in order to discuss the presidential elections.


  1. God Bless Lebanon and free it from all the terrorists living in it.

  2. It is Horrible! My thoughts to MP Ghanem's family and to the other victims who happened to be at the wrong place in the wrong time.

  3. another casuality with the real objective to assassinate lebanon ...

  4. yep... you're right kheireddine, those people who happened to be at the wrong place in the wrong time...

    Lebanon is always the assassinated, and frankly I am losing hope more and more seeing that after a 16th explosion I think? and 8th assassination in less than 3 years, Lebanese are still divided ya3ne... shou baddo y2oul el wa7ad

  5. God Bless lebanon.. may his soul rest in peace
