Major explosion rocks southern Lebanon, reportedly hits ‘Hezbollah house’ (VIDEOS, PHOTOS)

Major explosion rocks southern Lebanon, reportedly hits ‘Hezbollah house’ (VIDEOS, PHOTOS)
A powerful explosion has occurred in the southern Lebanese village of Qana. Footage from the scene shows a large plume of smoke and dust emerging from the site of the blast, which reportedly hit a Hezbollah-owned property.

The explosion rocked the village on Tuesday, multiple videos emerging online show.

According to preliminary reports, the explosion occurred near the village’s gas station and cemetery.

The blast apparently occurred at a house owned by Hezbollah, local media reported. The group has set up a security cordon around the explosion site.

The explosion was likely caused by a “technical error” at an arms stockpile, unnamed security sources told local media. Imagery from the scene suggests the explosion caused heavy damage to buildings nearby.

Several people were injured by the blast, Reuters is reporting, citing security sources. Exact figures were not immediately available.
