Explosion of a Hezbollah Weapons Storage Facility in the Village of Al-Shahabiya

Video footage of the aftermath of the explosion today in Al-Shahabiya, a village in southern Lebanon, shows smoke rising from a building. Hezbollah controls this area of Lebanon and the building where the explosion occurred was used as a Hezbollah weapons storage facility.

Today’s incident is only one of many that clearly show that Hezbollah systematically violates United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701, which stipulates that Hezbollah should be disarmed and that no paramilitary groups will be active south of the Litani river.
