Hezbollah on Friday condemned the twin explosions that occurred earlier in the day in Lebanon's northern city of Tripoli, stating the blasts were an attempt to aggravate growing sectarian tensions in the country, Beirut-based The Daily Star reported.

"These twin terrorist explosions are part of a criminal plan aiming to plant the seeds of strife between Lebanese and drag them into fighting under the banner of confessionalism and sectarianism,” the Daily Star quote the militant Shi'ite group as saying in a statement.
