Lebanese Army discovers 'Israeli made' roadside bombs near speaker's home
Three arrested following discovery

By Mohammed Zaatari
Daily Star staff
Wednesday, January 19, 2005



SIDON: Three people were arrested after two roadside bombs - allegedly made in Israel - were discovered in southern Lebanon near the home of Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri. In an official Lebanese Army statement the country's military intelligence said one of its patrols found two bombs early Tuesday morning, which the army added, were made by Israel.

"The results of the investigation showed that the two bombs were manufactured by the Israeli enemy," an army statement said.

No further information was available on the fate of the three people arrested.

The bombs were planted 3 meters apart near Al-Zahrani village on a main road about 10 kilometers south of the port of Sidon. Military sappers defused the bombs, which weighed 8 kilograms each and were concealed in iron boxes connected to a remote control detonator, the statement said. Security officials said the location where the two bombs were defused is about 2 kilometers from Berri's weekend residence in Mosseileh.

Lebanese security officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the bombs were planted in a largely uninhabited area, which they suggested was an indication that an official's convoy may have been the target during the Eid al-Adha holiday.

According to sources, the number "3" was written on one of the bombs, while the number "1" was written on the other. The area was examined with the help of police dogs, but no other devices were found. During a meeting of Parliament's joint committees, Berri seemed unfazed by the proximity of the bombs to his weekend home and attempted to make light of the situation, saying: "I promise you not to use roads planted with bombs."

One of the two bombs was found underneath an overpass. This bomb was taken to a remote location and then detonated.


Military Sappers Defuse 2 Bombs at Highway Overpass in S. Lebanon
Army and police sappers on Tuesday defused a roadside bomb and harmlessly detonated another planted under an overpass on south Lebanon's coastal highway at the Sidon-Zahrani intersection on the way to the market town of Nabatiyeh, averting a potential traffic disaster, a police statement said.
Each of the two bombs was made of eight kilograms of powerful explosives and concealed in an iron box connected to a remote-controlled detonator, the statement said. Local media reports suggested assassination of a political figure may have been the objective.

Army troops and police closed the highway during the sappers' handling of the two bombs, diverting traffic to detours that created bumper-to-bumper jams as an investigation was launched into the incident.

Kudos to the army for preventing this act of terrorism.

Kudos indeed.

And shame on the Israeli's for leaving the "Made in Israel" sticker on it.

For the first story, it was the "Lebanese Army" which said the bombs were Israeli. Ok...

For the second story, there is no mention of Israel at all.

From a Reuters story, the Lebanese army is quoted as saying:

"The results of the investigation showed that the two bombs were manufactured by the Israeli enemy," an army statement said.

I take it with a grain of salt. That's the only other source I can find on this story.

My guess is Ariel Sharon, David Levy and Binyamin Ben-Eliezer Big grin

But can someone explain this to me:

Why is it that this is questionable because it's a lebanese source?
If it was a Israeli source who said it was a palestinian bomb, would that have been questionable as well?

I don't blame any of the sides. But I just find it strange that every time they find stuff that points against Israel it has to be questioned. But if it's a palestinian bomb or whatever, there is absolutly no doubt about that the Palestinians are bad people.

Something about Lebanon being controlled by one of the worst dictatorships in the Middle East and Israel being the only free country in the region?

It sure doesn't seem like it. They had a free election. And is starting to become a great tourist attraction as well.

Nosedive,

The article you posted is a story of how Israel responded to an attack on its army. Hizbullah blew up an Israeli army bulldozer, which prompted retaliatory airstrikes. Is there any problem here? Your article doesn't relate to the story being discussed here. That's been all over the mainstream media.

About the Israeli army planting bombs in Lebanon, the only sources was one Lebanese source and a quick mention in Reuters. The mention in Reuters was a quote from the Lebanese army saying:

"The results of the investigation showed that the two bombs were manufactured by the Israeli enemy," an army statement said.

Do you see why I question the validity of this story? Its easy to blame Israel when they found the bombs, even though it could have just as easily been the work of militants in the country trying to cause a mess for their own agenda.

No offence Tbar,

But do you honestly think that Israel haven't done the same thing 1 single time?

OYRJA,

Of course not, no army in the world is totally honest. But the integrity of an Israeli army statement isn't what I'm discussing here.

DLKAPA,

I have no idea what the quote is from, so I don't know what the context of it is or what the context of your comment is.

Nope. But that is what I am questioning, since you guys are questioning the lebanese army. I just wanted to see what your opinion was on that before you started to question other army's.

OYRJA,

Well I don't know what more you want me to say on that. As for the Lebanese army statement, don't you think its also questionable, since it is the only source for this information and quoted only in the Lebanese news media (and one mention in Reuters that I quoted earlier)? That's the reasoning behind me questioning it. Similarly, if the same were with the Israeli army I would question it as well.

Otherwise, I think we're just going in circles here, not really disagreeing but not really going anywhere.

DLKAPA,

I'm still not understanding the context of the quote in this discussion and why it led you to make your comment, you will have to explain.

I really don't want you to say anymore. I got my answer.
And I appreciate your honesty about it. I just wish more could be calm like you.
But I do question both sides. I'm not only one 1 side in this conflict. And I don't know if it was a Israeli bomb or not. All I know is that someone planted it there. If it's Israeli or Lebanese I don't know. I only get my information from news like the rest of you do.

1) I got you to open it
2) I wanted to see if RJ would even open the damn thing before he mouthed off.

Now back to the topic at hand, if there is indeed an equal and opposite reaction to everything, and everything is physics Big grin, then this is what you get: a 2 hard-ons on both sides claiming the other guy is a prick. I'll let you chew on that for a while...

In all seriousness, I opened the article because I thought you had found another source on the claim that Israel had planted those bombs, but I found that it was on a story unrelated to the topic at hand. So duh, you got me to open the article.

What I'm curious to know is what you think about the topic being discussed. Do you think the claim is true? Do you think it possible the information is false? Etc. etc., similar to what we've been discussing above.

I'm not gonna bother and answer back this statement,it's obvious through many posts by RJpieces in this forum that this is his, unfortunately, wrong view of the things and one sided opinion.

Proves that while some teenagers actually have some things to say in these forums, others should not be posting yet.


Not trying to back RJPieces on what he says, however:

What's wrong with that? Is not like that statement is exaggerated or anything, in fact it's spot on.


Syria, at the very least is a terrorist heaven. Now watch how the others are gonna say Israels are also terrorists.. and the blaming circle goes on and on..  Smile/happy/getting dizzy And yes Damascus has a say in Lebanon's foreign policy, recently causing a division when some in the government wanted to approve policies that would strain relations with the U.S. Some of the members were quite frustrated and angry saying that was stupid, and rightly so.


I'm still not understanding the context of the quote in this discussion and why it led you to make your comment, you will have to explain.

If you are referring to what he said of "Lebanon being the Paris of the Middle east", that was in 1 or 2 Lebanese guys' profiles here on a.net, he probably remebered that and wrote it.


Anyways is not like it would make any sense for the Israeli Army to go and put three stupid bombs on the road in front of someone's house in Lebanon.. For obvious reasons I also take this with a grain of salt.

Aww, DLKAPA, it's nice to see friends sticking up for friends. Now seeing that you put no thought into what BA told you to write, maybe you should rethink that one. Beiruit was the Paris of the Middle East 40 years ago, before the Muslims started a civil war.

You might think that "Israel is a shithole", but it's the most advanced society in the Middle East--Technologically, culturally, militarily, and strategically. But of course BA didn't tell you to say that, right?
