Lebanese MP Walid Jumblatt has warned about more terrorist attacks by takfiri groups in Lebanon following a deadly bombing hit a Beirut suburb.

“Lebanon has entered an episode of madness. Takfiri [militants] have embarked on terrorism,” Jumblatt said, warning that radical Wahhabis had initiated a bombing campaign.

He stressed that cohesion of security agencies was required more than ever.

“Unity among security [agencies] is more important than unity in government,” he said.

Hezbollah MP Ali Ammar, speaking at the site of Tuesday’s explosion, said the terrorist attack in Haret Hreik revealed the two faces of Israel.

“The Israeli enemy has another face: the takfiri face that is trying to undermine the resistance and coexistence,” he said, vowing that his party would continue its resistance against Israeli-backed takfiris.

Tuesday’s was the fourth since July 2013 to target the southern suburbs of Beirut.

The Haret Hreik bombing was claimed by al-Nusra Front in Lebanon, an Al-Qaeda offshoot which has been involved in numerous atrocities against Syrian people during the ongoing war in Syria.
