Dahr al-Baydar, Bekaa, Lebanon
Lebanese Army soldiers and civilians scramble to help each other immediately after a suicide car bomb exploded near a Lebanese Internal Security Forces checkpoint in Dahr al-Baydar, in the Bekaa valley. The checkpoint is located on the main Beirut-Damascus highway and the blast comes on the same day of a major security crackdown against suspected Islamist militants in Lebanon.
The Lebanese Red Cross issued a report soon after saying that two people were killed and eighteen wounded as a result of the blast.
