SIDON, Lebanon: A Lebanese man was severely wounded Wednesday and his hunting dog perished when an object, suspected to be a cluster bomb left by Israel’s Army, exploded in south Lebanon.

Security sources told The Daily Star Hasan Abbas Hamieh was hunting on the outskirts of Kfar Hatta, a village in the Sidon province that sits at the edge of Iqlim al-Tuffah region, when his dog apparently stepped on the object.

They said the dog was instantly killed. Hamieh was taken to a Sidon hospital for treatment.

The sources said they believe the explosion was the result of a cluster bomb left over from the July-August 2006 war between Israel and Lebanon. Israel dropped thousands of unexploded ordinances on south Lebanon during the 34-day war.
