BEIRUT: Local TV station OTV was attacked with a Molotov cocktail in the early hours of Saturday morning, the channel reported.

A tweet from the station's official account read "Video: this is how OTV was attacked with Molotov cocktails," with a link to footage of the incident. It did not give details on the extent of the damage or whether anyone was injured in the incident.

Grainy security footage taken at around 4:45 Saturday morning shows a car pulling up to the building's entrance, before two people get out and throw a lit object at the building. Upon impact, it explodes with a large flash.

While the tweet said that multiple petrol bombs were thrown, the footage only shows one.
