Hezbollah condemnLebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah has condemned the deadly car bomb attack in the capital, which killed at least eight people and injured scores of others.

Hezbollah also called on Lebanese to stand united and urged an investigation into the Friday explosion. The Syrian government has also issued a

statement condemning the terrorist attack as a 'cowardly' move.

The intelligence chief of Lebanon's Internal Security Forces, General Wissam al-Hassan, is reported to be among those killed in the blast. He had recently uncovered an Israeli spy cell in Lebanon.

Lebanese protesters took to the streets shortly after the explosion to condemn Hassan's assassination. 

The explosion occurred in Beirut's eastern Ashrafiya district, which is a predominantly Christian district, and near the headquarters of the the Phalange, a Maronite Christian party, during the rush hour as parents were picking up their children from school. Several building were damaged and many cars were set on fire as a result of the blast.

It was the first major bomb attack in Beirut since 2008. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati said the government was trying to identify the perpetrators and that they would be punished.

Some political analysts have blamed the Israeli regime for a deadly car bombing in the Lebanese capital in which at least eight people, including a senior intelligence official, were killed and dozens of others were injured.

“As 1992 to today in the day bombing of Beirut the identical scenario, who benefits from attempting to divide Lebanon and spread the turmoil, who benefits destabilizing the government in Damascus, who states to destabilize Beirut and subject Lebanon to civil war, the Zionist regime (Israel), the Mossad. It is a classical operation of Mossad,” Ralph Schoenman, a political commentator from Berkeley, told Press TV.

Brigadier General Wissam al-Hassan -- the intelligence chief of the Lebanese Internal Security Forces - is believed to be the intended target of the attack that took place near Sassine Square in Beirut’s predominantly Christian district of Ashrafiya on Friday.

Lebanese political parties have described the terrorist attack as an attempt to destabilize the country.

Meanwhile, the anti-Syrian March 14 alliance has said Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati must be held accountable for the bombing, calling for his resignation.
