BEIRUT: Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri described Friday the car bombing that claimed the lives of at least three people in Beirut earlier in the day as an act of “terror.”

“The cowardly terrorist attack in Ashrafieh today is an attack on all of Lebanon and all Lebanese,” Hariri said in a statement.

“This was a cowardly act aimed at destabilizing Lebanon and its security,” he added.

Hariri called on the relevant authorities to move quickly to “safeguard the lives of citizens and their property.”

He also urged authorities to “strike with an iron fist all those who allow themselves to mess with Lebanon’s stability and security.”

Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri also denounced the bombing.

“The Ashrafieh bombing is a terrorist attack and an organized crime against civilians and their property and against all of Lebanon," Berri said in a statement.

“This is not the time to throw accusations, but to look into the dimensions of this crime,” he added.
