Security sources said the blast had caused a number of injuries.
An arms depot of the Iran-backed Shi'ite Muslim group Hezbollah exploded in southern Lebanon on Tuesday, a security source said, injuring several people and sending a new shockwave across a nation grappling with its deepest crisis in three decades.
The security source said the arms depot blast, which sent a huge column of black smoke into the sky, was caused by a "technical error."
The al-Manar television station run by Lebanon's Hezbollah said the cause of an explosion in southern Lebanon on Tuesday was not yet clear.
The explosion rocked the village of Ain Qana in south Lebanon, a political stronghold of the heavily armed and politically powerful group which has fought wars with neighboring Israel.
The blast has further rattled a nation grappling with its worst crisis since the 1975-1990 civil war and still reeling from a devastating explosion at Beirut port that ripped through the capital, killing at least 190 people.
Since the Beirut blast on Aug. 4, subsequent fires at the port and elsewhere in the capital have caused panic in Beirut and the country, whose economy is in meltdown.
Another security source said Hezbollah had set up a security cordon around the blast site, about 50 km (30 miles) south of Beirut. Journalists were prevented from approaching the area.
There was no immediate statement from Hezbollah. Security sources said there were several injuries without giving figures.
A witness near the village said they felt the ground shake.
Footage from the area broadcast by Al-Jadeed showed men walking over scorched ground littered with debris. Damage was shown in an adjacent house where the floor was covered in glass and what appeared to be a pool of blood.
At least one fire was still burning in the location, the footage showed.
“Another one? Ok, this is not coincidence. I smell Mossad at work...”
I smell the takedown of the Iranian califate and shiite islam. Now with the Sunni’s lining up with Israel, Iran needs to decide how it will deal with Syria, Lebanon and Hezbollah. Destroy them and Iran becomes isolated which will be the perfect time for regime change.
Freepers always smell Mossad
It has that same ring as Rove You Magnificent Bastard
But I think its overapplied
Hezbollah has more foes then simply Israel
Sorry, Achmed, but that No Smoking sign applies to you too. Now go put yourself out.
Wish we could rent them for a few months, just to walk the streets where White Lives Apparently Don't Matter.
Yeah, dats da ticket!
Gotta luv those pesky Joos....lol
“Five is RIGHT OUT!!”
Bad luck strikes again for the Iranian thugs!
So, if the Israeli intelligence “knows about” a arms depot in Lebanon, how it is possible the (legitimate) Lebanese government “does not know” about it?
No sympathies for the neighborhood - The weapons stored inside were being used against innocents elsewhere.
The more the merrier.
Dyin' ain't much of a livin', boy.
