A person blew himself up as the Lebanese security forces besieged him in a Syrian refugee camp in the Akkar region of northern Lebanon, Al-Jadeed TV reported, citing a correspondent nearby.
The explosion caused a number of dead and wounded, and occurred during a raid by the strike force in the Information Branch.
The report said a Syrian man blew himself up in a small room inside the al-Fotouh area, located between Khirbet Daoud and al-Bireh in Akkar.
The mayor of Khirbet Daoud confirmed that the explosion was not within the vicinity of Khirbet Daoud, and that there was a strike operation in the morning, and during this, the explosion took place.
He said, “We do not yet know whether the explosion was caused by the detonation of a bomb or if the young man blew himself up,” pointing out that the room is owned by a person from the town of Ayn al-Zayt, but it is not known if he had rented it prior to the crime.
