Former Mossad chief Danny Yatom discounted a claim by Lebanese President Michel Sleiman that Israel was behind a deadly car bombing that went off near a Hezbollah stronghold in Beirut Thursday.

"We have become accustomed to this kind of accusations, they need to be ignored," Yatom told Army Radio on Friday.

"There is almost no situation in the Middle East that Israel's opponents do not attribute to Israel, and this is also true in this case," he said.
