The blast in southern coastal city of Tyre occurred at Hellzballah arms cache.
So soon after 2 huge explosions in Iran military bases which killed dozens, I'd say suspicious, tho there are a lot of .. um ... work accidents. (smile)
Lebanese security forces were prevented from investigating. And THAT happened both times. Harder to blame Israel when FACTS are uncovered.
A massive explosion rocked a Hezbollah stronghold near Siddiqin near Tyre, Lebanon, no reports of injuries.
The blast occurred in an area that is under UN control. According to UN Resolution 1701, which ended the Second Lebanon War,
Hezbollah is forbidden from storing arms in this region. A UNIFIL team is expected to launch an investigation into the explosion.
November 24, 2011 Thursday
Several Hezbollah arms depots were hit by mysterious explosions the last 2 years. The Nov 23 explosion at Hezbollah arms depot is yet another mishap.
U N Resolution 1701 said Hezbollah must not deploy armed forces or set up military equipment warehouses in the south of the country.
Too bad Hellzballah never kept it.
Hezbollah considering military coup to seize parts of Beirut if Assad falls.
Hellzballah puts arms depots in urban areas, under the noses of UNIFIL and with the backing of the Lebanese army.
Israel sees this and is infuriated. Israeli aircraft hover across Lebanon recording the Hezbollah military buildup, but unlike Hellzballah, Israel adheres to the ceasefire.
UNIFIL turns a blind eye to weapons shipments into Lebanon.
Americans advised to leave Syria immediately
Embassy advises all Americans to leave Syria while commercial flights still operating.
The number of airlines operating in Syria has dropped considerably since the summer.
Syria is descending into a civil war and foreigners are therefore in danger.

4 triggers for CIA spy scares in Iran, Hellzballah
November 25, 2011 DEBKA Analysis with my own comments
Hellzballah claimed the unmasking of a CIA network in Lebanon.
IRAN claimed the capture of 12 CIA spies
Tehran needed to erase the bad impression left by the explosion which wiped out Iran entire missile command
Iran's buddy Syrian President Bashar Assad cant put down the uprising against his rule,
The Siddiqin explosion was a shock to Tehran, Damascus and Beirut. It was a well-protected Hizballah stronghold.
The unexplained explosion at the illegal Lebanon Hellzballah arms dump was caused by Syrian rebels.
Graffiti left at the scene of the blast said it was revenge for Hizballah aide to Assad. Hahahaa!
Blind UNIFIL has proven WORTHLESS, as they allow Hellzballah terrorists to violate UN agreements and stockpile weapons.
Syrian rebels can identify Hizballah rocket hideouts and launching pads, in which Iran has invested, and may sabotage them before they can be fired against Israel.
Both Iran and Hizballah leader Hassan 'Nasty" Nasrallah are gearing up for war.
Nasty has been inspecting his units, warning them that war with Israel and perhaps others, is very near.
Rockets fired from Lebanon land in northern Israel
28 November 2011 ynet and BBC
2 buildings were damaged. Kfar Vradim northern Israel residents heard explosions shortly after midnight.
IDF fired on Lebanon in response to barrage of rockets fired. (Ynet)
4 rockets fired from Lebanon landed in Israel western Galilee.
Lebanese army found 2 rocket launchers, a battery and stopwatch between towns.
The rockets fell in the Western Galilee region and the Israeli army returned fire into Lebanon.
Israel considers it a serious incident and it is the responsibility of Lebanon government and army to avoid these attacks.
One rocket landed in Biranit, Israel 700 metres from the Lebanese border.
2 rockets landed in the town of Netua, causing minor damage.
SYRAN - Syria and Iran have armed Hellzballah and some rockets have chemical warheads.
Rocket fire on Israel was Syrian warning
November 30, 2011
The 4 rockets from Lebanon which hit Galilee in northern Israel was Hellzballah on behalf of Damascus.
Hizballah controls south Lebanon.
IDF reads the attack as Assads last warning.
NATO - Gulf intervention in Syria would trigger a massive assault on Israel.
Syria claims there is a foreign conspiracy targeting Syria. That is absolutely correct. They targeted Tunesia, Egypt, Yemen, Libya.
They intend to establish shariah law all across the mideast, then the world, even USA.

Domino effect: unrest spreads to Lebanon
February 11, 2012
At least two people have been killed in the Lebanese city of Tripoli in clashes between supporters and opponents of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad, security officials say. At least 12 people were injured, as the two sides fired guns and rocket-propelled grenades at each other. The violence erupted after Friday prayers and continued overnight. Tensions in the northern port city have mounted since the beginning of the uprising in Syria last March. Residents said the RPGs were fired from the Sunni Muslim district of Bab al-Tabbana towards the Alawite district of Jabal Muhsin on Friday. Footage by Reuters TV also showed gunmen taking cover on street corners and firing volleys of automatic gunfire. Lebanese troops were later deployed in both districts, the army said in a statement. It added that several soldiers were among the injured. Tripoli is dominated by Sunni Muslims, who support the anti-Assad uprising in Syria. Mr Assad is an Alawite, and members of the minority sect – an offshoot of Shia Islam – occupy key positions in the Syrian government and security forces
Syrian army uses human shields on tanks February 12, 2012
Syrian government forces are using detained civilians as human shields, placing them on tanks in the besieged city of Homs to prevent the opposition Free Syrian Army from fighting back, an opposition activist said.
The latest tactic came as shelling rained on city's Baba Amr neighborhood once again Sunday, residents say, marking at least the eighth straight day President Bashar al-Assad's troops have pummeled Homs in an attempt to wipe out the opposition.
"My house is dancing. I am almost dead because of the siege," said the opposition activist, named Omar.
Three civilians were killed in Sunday's shelling on Baba Amr, according the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition activist group. A fourth civilian was killed by gunfire near the town of Bab Houweid, the group said.
Armed Assad supporters and opponents clash in Lebanon
There has been heavy gunfire in the Lebanese city of Tripoli, as supporters and opponents of Syria's President Bashar al-Assad took to the streets.
Rocket-propelled grenades were also fired and a bystander was injured by a stray round, officials said.
Prime Minister Najib Mikati told the army to "take necessary measures to halt" the events in the northern port.
The violence erupted after hundreds of people attended an anti-Assad demonstration after Friday prayers.
Residents said the RPGs were fired from the Sunni Muslim district of Bab al-Tabbana towards the Alawite district of Jabal Muhsin.
People from the two areas clash frequently, but tensions have mounted since the beginning of the uprising in Syria in March.
Assad is an Alawite and members of the minority Shia sect occupy key positions in the Syrian government and security forces.
Syria's majority Sunni community has been at the forefront of the revolt against the president and borne the brunt of the state's crackdown, which human rights groups say has left more than 7,000 people dead.
March 8, 2012 – BEIRUIT – Residents of the Lebanese southern city of Tyre and its suburbs at around 10:47 a.m. on Wednesday felt the ground shake, the National News Agency reported. A small quake measuring 3.6 on the Richter scale jolted cities in southern Lebanon on Wednesday, without causing any injuries or damage, the Bhannes Center for Seismic and Scientific Research announced, adding “There is nothing to worry about.” Residents of the southern city of Tyre and its suburbs felt the earthquake at around 10:47 am, the National News Agency said. Residents also felt the tremor in Nabatiyeh, the agency added. –Ya Libnan
Lebanon intercepts Syria-bound smuggling ship

Weapons to supply Syrian rebels. The Lutfallah was on its way to Tripoli when it was intercepted.
Assad has said weapons are being smuggled from neighboring countries, including Lebanon, to arm jihadists.
Lebanon holds weapons ship
April 29, 2012 The Lebanese navy is holding Lutfallah ship and says it confiscated a large consignment of arms and ammunition it was carrying.

HELLzballah rushes arms to Syria, Iran sets up security cameras in Damascus
May 11, 2012 DEBKAfile Exclusive
Iran's Lebanese proxy Hellzballah sent weapons and military equipment across the border to Syria after the Damascus explosions.
No one in Lebanon will stop this.

Will Israel attack Hellzballah Scuds?
June 3, 2012 DEBKA Exclusive
Lebanese Hellzballah is getting ready to bring its missiles and other weapons out of secret storage in Syria to Lebanon.
Two years ago, Israel had warned that the Scuds would be destroyed if they were moved over to Lebanon.
Hellzballah kept its most advanced hardware stashed near Damascus.
Now Iran-Hellzballah want them in Lebanon without exposing them to Israeli attack.
One plan is for Hellzballah and Palestinian Muslim terrorists in Gaza to both attack Israel.
Turkey, Russia both now support Assad
Turkey told the Free Syrian Army they have withdrawn permission for them to launch operations against the Assad regime from Turkish soil.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (IRAN), Bashar Assad (SYRIA) and Hassan 'Nasty' Nasrallah (Lebanon)
confront the United States and Israel with the deployment of Scuds aimed at Israel from Lebanon.
This is serious to Israeli defense!
Hezballah may move Syrian arms to Lebanon
June 13, 2012 I thought they already did that, despite Israeli warning not to.
Assad may be losing control over military assets, including air defense base.
Israel worried Hezbollah will try to move sophisticated weaponry from Syria to Lebanon to protect them in the event of Syrian President Bashar Assad downfall.
Hezbollah might try to move the missiles into Lebanon to prevent them from being captured by rebels.
If this happens, Israel will have to decide if it should attack and intercept the transfer or ignore it to prevent such a strike from escalating into an all-out war with Hezbollah and Syria. In which case Gaza and Turkey would join in.
