Hamas terror training in Lebanon; Hezbollah upset

From Naharnet:
The explosion that rocked Beirut's southern suburbs over the weekend has reportedly took place during live ammunition training of Hamas members.
Pan-Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat, citing Lebanese sources, said Wednesday the blast occurred as Hamas members exercised with live ammunition in the basement of Hamas headquarters in Haret Hreik neighborhood in Dahiyeh.

Beirut media agreed that the explosion took place inside a room used by Hamas members in the basement of a building that houses Bank of Kuwait and the Arab World on the main road between Haret Hreik and Bir Abed.

Asharq al-Awsat said Hizbullah was displeased with Hamas.

It said Hizbullah has informed Hamas leadership that the Shiite group was "deeply dismayed at what had happened, particularly that training took place without the knowledge of the party and inside a residential building."
How dare Hamas store and test weapons in civilian areas in Lebanon? Hezbollah has the exclusive franchise on that business!
