A loud explosion was heard on Sunday evening near the city of Baalbek in Lebanon. According to some media outlets, the explosion was an Israeli attack on a Hezbollah outpost near the border with Syria. The terrorist organization has denied this.

In an interview two weeks ago, Hezbollah deputy chief Naim Qassem told Reuters that the organization was "prepared to deal with the Israeli aggression in case Israel chooses to make a stupid act of some sort."

When asked about Israel's accusations that Hezbollah is assisting Iran in developing long-range missiles, Qassem said, "We do not provide military information about our capabilities, our allies or the deployment of our forces. These are secrets we are keeping to ourselves so as not to give free gifts to our enemies."
