The Lebanese resistance held Israel responsible for the blast.
In a short statement the official responsible for the south Lebanon area in the Hizbullah Party, Sheikh Nabil Qawouq said, "Martyr Khudr Deib, driver of the car is one of the resistance leaders." He added, "We hold the Israeli prime minister responsible for this criminal aggression."
