Lebanon - Closer to the Edge
It appears that the motive of the blasts was to deter anti-Syrian Christians from attending a demonstration organized for tomorrow in Beirut, in order to commemorate the second anniversary of the assassination of Rafik al-Hariri. The buses are typical of the transport, which would be used to transport participants to the event.
Moreover, the demonstration would pass near the ongoing sit-in against the current anti-Syrian government, organized by pro Hezbollah and anti-government Christians. Christians are split in their pro and anti-Syrian, pro and anti-government sentiments. Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but obviously it is being blamed on Syria or pro-Syrian parties.
Coming just weeks after huge student and local clashes between pro-and anti-government Shia and Sunni Arabs in Beirut, it further heightens tensions in the complex and highly volatile situation there. All eyes will now be on Beirut tomorrow.
