LEB BLAST5Lebanon is conducting an investigation to find out what group supported the two bombers involved in the November 19 attack on the Iranian Embassy in Beirut.

“Investigation is currently centering on the group to which the two bombers belonged as well as the group that

provided them with logistical assistance, including the booking at the hotel and the vehicle used in the attack and who rigged it with explosives,” Lebanon’s Military Prosecutor Judge Saqr Saqr told the Daily Star on Monday.

Lebanon has identified the two, Lebanese national Mouin Abu Daher and Adnan Mousa Mohammad, a Palestinian from the Ain al-Hilweh refugee camp near Sidon, with links to Salafi Sheikh Ahmed al-Assir.

The two blasts outside the Iranian Embassy in the southern neighborhood of Janah in the Lebanese capital left over two dozen people dead, including six Iranian nationals, and wounded over 150 others.

According to reports, the first explosion took place when a bomber blew his explosives near the gate of the embassy, and the second blast happened just meters away when a car bomb went off.

Abdullah Azzam Brigades, an al-Qaeda-linked group, has claimed responsibility for the twin bombings.

The Lebanese military prosecutor said investigators were also trying to find out where the explosives-laden car came from on the day of the attacks.

A senior Lebanese military official, whose name was not mentioned in the reports, said that army intelligence was trying to determine who provided the bombers with the explosives-rigged vehicle and whether the attack on the Iranian Embassy was a link in a chain of other attacks.

Meanwhile, Lebanese caretaker Defense Minister Fayez Ghosn said there might be a third or a fourth person involved in the bombings.

“The bombing was the result of precise intelligence work,” Ghosn told Lebanon’s Al Jadeed TV on Sunday. “No longer can anyone say that al-Qaeda does not exist in Lebanon.”
