The following day, Lebanon held a mourning for the “41 people were killed in two suicide bombings in the capital, Beirut,” according to BBC, while injuring “more than 200 people.”

The people behind the suicide bombings were two Palestinians and a Syrian from the IS (ISIS) group, who let the explosives go off near a Shia mosque, and inside a bakery that was close by, while the third person was killed before the explosives went off.

The Hezbollah, a military group of Shia Muslim formed in Lebanon, blamed IS (ISIS) for the bombers, claiming “it was a Satanic terrorist attack,” said Hezbollah official Bilal Farhat (who told the Associated Press). Further saying that they promise to “continue its fight against ‘terrorists’ warning of a ‘long war’ against its enemies” according to the Reuters news agency.

In the meantime, in southern Beirut, hospitals encouraged people to donate blood.
