Two hand grenades were thrown on Thursday night at an office belonging to Lebanese politician Michel Aoun's Free Patriotic Movement, which is considered an ally of Hizbullah.

The attack came after Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah promised that his group's withdrawal from the Lebanese government on Wednesday would not lead to civil war in the country.

An official Lebanese news agency reported that the grenades were thrown at a structure of Aoun's Christian party in the village of Beit Habab, about 25 km from Beirut.

According to reports, only one of the grenades exploded and inflicted damage to the property, and no one was hurt.
