A senior Lebanese intelligence officer has been injured in a car bomb in Sidon.
Colonel Samir Shehadeh is seriously wounded, two others are dead – a soldier and a civilian.
Sidon is a city in the Israeli-occupied south of Lebanon. Israel attacked a senior Islamic Jihad figure with a car bomb in the city last year. Anyone who thinks the string of car bombs in Lebanon over the past year is Syria’s fault now needs to think again. (Syria must be quite talented to carry out an attack inside the Israeli occupied area).
