The town is also home to hundreds of Palestinian families who work mainly in agriculture and trade, as well as Sunni Lebanese families. Residents of Bisarieh were incensed after two local men, Adnan Moussa Mohammad and Mouin Abu Daher, were implicated in the Iranian Embassy attacks in Beirut last November. Now, they say, history is repeating itself as the Army identified one of the suicide bombers behind last week's twin attacks against the Iranian Cultural Center in Bir Hasan as Palestinian Nidal al-Mghayar, also a resident of the town. Many of the Palestinians in the town fear that the second suicide bomber in the twin attack, whose identity is still unknown, was also a resident of the town.
