Lebanese media blames IAF strike for explosion
Sky News: IAF planes were flying over Lebanon at time of explosion; Al-Manar: Explosion in east Tyre caused by grenade.
Lebanese media outlets reported on Sunday night the Israel Air Force (IAF) caused a large explosion in southern Lebanon with an air strike east of Tyre. According to Sky News, IAF planes were seen flying in Lebanese air space around the time of the explosion.

The reports follow days of so-called IAF "mock raids" over Lebanese air space, according to Lebanese news sites.

Lebanon's official National News Agency reported at the time that an explosion was heard in villages east of Tyre, although they added that the cause of the explosion was unknown.

Hezbollah’s network Al-Manar later reported that the explosion in the Tyre area was due to a stun grenade thrown by unknown assailants.
