The Lebanese Shiite Hizballah reported that one of its commanders was killed outside his Beirut home and immediately blamed Israel. The statement said that Hajj Hassan Hollo al-Laqqis was killed around midnight in the Hadath district. It gave no details of the incident except to say “the accusation is directed at the enemy, Israel.” A few hours earlier, Hizballah leader Hassan Nasrallah accused Saudi Arabia of being behind the suicide bombings at the Iranian embassy in Beirut on Nov. 19.
