5 Palestinian fighters killed in Lebanon blast blamed on Israel

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command has blamed Zionist regime for the killing of five of its members in a blast in eastern Lebanon, near the Syrian border.


Anwar Raja, a PFLP-GC official, said an Israeli strike on Wednesday hit positions in the Lebanese eastern town of Qusaya.


He said 10 were wounded, with two in a critical condition.


However, an Israeli source told Reuters that Israel had not been involved in the attack. There has been no official comment from Israel.


There were conflicting reports from Lebanese and Palestinian sources that the blast was a result of an old rocket going off in an arms depot or mines exploding while they were being moved.
