Yesterday’s blast in Antelias could have easily killed a dozen people if not more, yet and according to the new interior minister Marwan Charbel, and I quote, “the explosion was a result of a financial and personal dispute between several people, including some car dealers.” [Naharnet]
I mean seriously??? All TVs reported that one guy was on his knees planting a bomb when it exploded in his hands. Do you need to plant a bomb under someone’s car to settle some old scores? Can’t you just smash it with a bat or scratch it?
“Our investigation so far does not point to an act of sabotage,” he told reporters.
How does it point to a personal dispute then? Those are two close friends coming to an area unknown to them, taking over 100,000$ from a nearby bank and almost succeeding in planting a bomb and running away.
I don’t care about the political background of the interior minister or the killers but claiming that this is a personal dispute is an insult to our intelligence.
i miss the old times when people argued they used fists or guns…at least only the target would suffer!
and isnt it stupid to kill urself in the process of settling a dispute?
although its not common practice, but wouldnt u use a grenade or something? why would they use a homemade bomb with nails?
usually these type of bombs are used for achieving the maximum number of casualties not killing one target!
With the new government we are becoming more and more like Syria.
Boukra bi2oulou that his GF dumped him and so he decided to kill himself
I donâ€™t know if we should believe what our interior minister said regarding this accident, but what we know is that this accident added one additional negative impact on Lebanese life!
On the other hand, our ministers and the whole government should work more to let people trust what they say, because iâ€™m sure that most lebanese didnâ€™t believe what our Interior minister said!
good it wasnt a gas canister!
yeah..this reminds me when syrian Interior Minister Ghazi Kanaan committed suicide by shooting himself 5 times in the head…
mbayyneh kenit pyramid bonjus, w da3asit 3laya siyyara bel ghalat.. mbayyneh ya shabeb..
move along, nothing to see here..
What’s ridiculous about this and i am amazed that your bloggers have failed to see that these “partners” had a ready made explosive device in their pocket walking around in the parking lot lol.
What a screwed up culture. The people do believe in the bovine scatology of the IM…Ask around. No one cares! People in Lebanon have elected these morons?
Sorry but did you believe in that utter nonsense explanation of the Interior Ministry?
surely not, but just thinking out loud !
It was a funny incident =P and I was supposed to be having lunch one block away! Brought back the adrenaline rushes of old
I just wonder how they knew what the guys were fighting about when both of them died! Fakru fiya!
^^^^^^^^It’s called a security camera.
According to Michel Aoun , one of the ouweat realize they are from hizballah and they are arguing so he placed a grenade in their hands and pulled the safety pin. ( he has pictures to prove it )
and according to him 4 Italians killed Harriry over a dispute on a spaghetti shipment.
