UN Special Coordinator Derek Plumbly Condemns Double Bombing in Bir Hassan

Beirut, Lebanon
Wednesday, 19 February 2014

The United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon, Derek Plumbly, condemned today’s double bombing in the area of Bir Hassan in the southern Beirut suburbs that killed and wounded a number of people. He extended his condolences to the families of the victims of this bombing.

The Special Coordinator called on the Lebanese to remain united in the face of such appalling and indiscriminate terrorist actions and to build on the positive step taken a few days ago with the formation of a new government by rallying around their state institutions, including the army and security forces, to safeguard their country’s security and stability. He reiterated the commitment of the international community to supporting Lebanon in these efforts. He welcomed the recent efforts of the Lebanese army and security forces in detaining terrorist suspects and preventing attacks and hoped those responsible for today’s bombing and all other acts of terrorism will be brought to justice as soon as possible.
