SIDON, Lebanon: A car belonging to the father of a suspect in the suicide attack that targeted the Iranian Cultural Center outside Beirut earlier this month was torched early Tuesday morning in south Lebanon, security sources said.

Unknown assailants set fire to the car of Marwan Hamadeh’s father, Youssef Hamadeh, around 2:00 a.m. in the southern village of Bisarieh, the sources said.

Hamadeh is suspected to have helped carried out the Feb. 15 twin suicide bombings in Bir Hasan that killed eleven people and wounded over 120. Nidal al-Mghayer, a 22-year-old Palestinian, was confirmed as the first bomber by DNA evidence.

Mghayer, a resident of Bisarieh, had fought the Lebanese Army alongside fugitive Sheikh Ahmad al-Assir during last June’s battle in Abra, a suburb of Sidon. Assir, a staunch critic of Hezbollah, remains at large.

Hamadeh, a friend of Mghayer, was also reportedly among Assir’s fighters in Abra.

Two cars belonging to Mghayer’s family and their house were torched when his name was made public in connection with the attack.
