14 January 2018

Local media reported that a bomb attached to the auto of Hamas official Mohammad Hamdan exploded outside his home in the southern city of Sidon, as he opened the vehicle's door.

A military source said a BMW in the southern port city of Sidon "detonated, wounding Hamas official Mohammed Hamdan".

Hamas, meanwhile, denied that any of its officials were targeted in an attack. Pictures from the scene show a BMW ripped from explosion, with fire and black smoke rising into the sky.

However, Watford striker Troy Deeney admitted that had the VAR system been in operation "we probably wouldn't have got it". He deserves all the credit and the praise.

Lebanese security forces imposed a security cordon around the site of the blast.

According to a medical source at the scene, Hamdan suffered serious wounds to his legs while opening the door to his vehicle and was undergoing surgery. However, Hamas' representative in Lebanon Ali Baraka told the local television channel LBC that the explosion did not target any Hamas officials.

Lebanese sources confirmed that an Israeli aircraft was flying in the atmosphere of Sidon at the moment of the explosion.
