A Hamas official was wounded in a auto bomb attack that struck the southern Lebanese city of Sidon on Sunday.

The official Lebanon News Agency said the explosion went off as Hamdan was getting into the auto. He was injured in the leg as a result and his vehicle and nearby buildings were damaged.

The Zionist officials denied the reports about the enemy's involvement in the blast, reflecting a case of confusion amid hints at the Israeli role in the blatant aggression.

Firefighters rushed to the scene to put out the flames, while security forces cordoned off the area.

Many of them were DREAMers-the swath of American-grown youth brought into the U.S.as children without the legal status. Trump is moving down a road toward amnesty for illegal immigrants-at least for the children of illegals.


A medical source at the scene said Hamdan suffered serious wounds to his legs while opening the door to his auto, and was transported to hospital. The explosion took place at his home, near Sidon's Al-Bustan Street.

Military and medical sources told AFP that a Hamas official was wounded, while Al Arabiya reported that Abu Hamza Hamdan was killed in the attack.

Shehab, a Gaza-based Hamas news agency, quoted Ayman Shanaa, a Hamas official in Sidon, as saying Hamdan was "one of the movement's cadres".
