On Wednesday, the Lebanese Security Forces discovered a vehicle stockpiled with 30kg worth of explosives near an LAF checkpoint in the province of Tripoli. Lebanese Army sappers approached the car that was suspected of harboring explosives and dismantled the bombs after spending an hour searching the vehicle.

According to a military source, the Lebanese Armed Forces checkpoint was located 100 meters from the abandoned vehicle; it was discovered on the main road leading to the downtown of the provincial capital. Sources believe that the explosives were intended to harm the Lebanese Army after their raids in the Roumieh Prison directly following the twin suicide bombings in the predominately- Alawi “Jabal Mohsen Quarter.”

One day after the situation in Tripoli, the Lebanese Security Forces rushed to the scene of a rolled-over Mercedes Benz on ‘Ayn Al-Sha’ab Road in rural ‘Arsal. Before approaching the rolled-over vehicle, Lebanese Army sappers were called upon again to inspect the vehicle for any explosives.

During the vehicle’s inspection on the dirt road, the Lebanese Army sappers discovered 120kg worth of explosives that placed in the trunk of the rolled-over Mercedes Benz. The sappers spent almost 2 hours dismantling the explosives inside the motor vehicle – a source added that Lebanese Military Intelligence believes that these explosives were intended for the Lebanese Security Forces.
