A large explosion rocked a Hezbollah stronghold in the city of Tyre on the southern Lebanese coast late on Tuesday night, Lebanon newspaper The Daily Star reported on Wednesday.
The Daily Star quoted local media as saying the explosion took place at a Hezbollah arms cache. A Lebanese security source did not confirm the media reports, saying the cause of the blast could not be determined due to Hezbollah security's closure of the area.
UNIFIL peacekeepers stationed in southern Lebanon told The Daily Star that they heard about the explosion on the news. "We have no information at the moment. We are checking this report," UNIFIL spokesman Andrea Tenenti was quoted as saying.
Hezbollah declined comment on reports of an explosion.
