Terrorism struck twice in a Christian village near the border with Syria at dawn and at night Monday, killing five people and wounding more than 30 others in a wave of suspected Daesh (ISIS) suicide bombings.The multiple attacks, involving eight suicide bombers, were the largest yet in the latest bloody spillover of the 5-year-old war in Syria into Lebanon which revived fears of a return to suicide blasts that had targeted the Lebanese Army and Hezbollah areas in the past. Four suicide bombers struck the northeastern village of Al-Qaa Monday night, wounding 13 people, 18 hours after four suicide bombings had killed five people and wounded 19 others in the same village, security and military sources said. The Army said in a statement that a suicide bomber blew himself up around 4:20 a.m. near the residence of a Lebanese national in Al-Qaa.The Army estimated that the explosive belts used in the bombings weighed around 2 kilograms each.Hours after the bombings, the Army pounded militant positions on the outskirts Al-Qaa.Lebanon has been repeatedly jolted by militant attacks linked to the war in neighboring Syria.
