None of the eight explosions that rocked Al-Qaa Tuesday has shaken residents' determination to stay put and defend their homes, many locals said. Although the terrorist attacks Monday left five of Al-Qaa's people dead and a further 28 wounded, the village's faith has not wavered a local resident from the Matar family. Matar also said that Al-Qaa's people will not give up an inch of land because it is "mixed with their sweat and blood". In the early hours of Tuesday morning, Baalbek Gov. Bashir Khodr's issued a curfew on Syrian nationals in Al-Qaa and Ras Baalbek areas.Meanwhile, Al-Qaa Mayor Bachir Matar said he believed the village was specifically targeted because it stood against terrorism. However, Nasrallah did not believe the targeting of Al-Qaa began Monday.
