BEIRUT — A grenade was found Sunday morning attached to the door of a car in the village of Jibsheet, in the Nabatieh region of South Lebanon, the state-run National News Agency reported.
The explosive was "attached to the door of a Honda SUV" that reportedly belongs to a person whose initials are Q. A. and who is wanted by the security forces. The police station in the locality of Doueir has taken charge of the investigation.
The security situation in Lebanon has deteriorated significantly since the onset of a severe economic crisis more than three years ago. Explosives and rockets are sometimes found abandoned in various parts of the country, where the carrying of weapons is poorly regulated and heavy arms are readily available.
