Terrorists attacked a Christian village in Lebanon this weekend. The Times of Israel reports that multiple suicide bombings in the village of Al-Qaa near the Syrian border left at least five dead:

At least five people were killed in multiple suicide bombings early Monday in eastern Lebanon near the border with Syria, officials said.

At least four suicide blasts hit the predominantly Christian village of Al-Qaa, a military source told AFP.

“The first attacker knocked on one of the homes in the village, but after the resident became suspicious, he blew himself up,” the source said.

“People began gathering at the site of the explosion and the three other suicide attackers blew themselves up,” he added.

A security source had said earlier that a bomb had exploded and then “more than one suicide bomber blew themselves (up).”

George Kettaneh, the general secretary of the Lebanese Red Cross, told AFP the blast had left “at least eight killed including three suicide bombers.”

He said 15 other people were wounded, including some in critical condition.
