Exactly one hour ago, a large bomb exploded near a bank in downtown Beirut. The perpetrators are unknown as no group has claimed responsibility yet.

Explosion

The explosion happened near the ‘Banque du Liban et d’Outremer’, a Lebanese bank not far from the Bristol Hotel in a densely populated area of Beirut, the Lebanese capital.

Remarkably, no casualties are reported.

Formerly, Jabhat al-Nusra (Syrian al-Qaeda group) and ISIS have targeted urban areas of Lebanon although both jihadist factions have failed to establish themselves in the country’s larger cities as they have met fierce military resistance from the Lebanese Armed Forces and Hezbollah (Lebanese paramilitary).

No victims, there were 2 reported injuries and 2 people fainted. There’s a chance that the news network messed up so it might be only 2 people fainted.
