Lebanese media reported on Friday that two people were wounded in a blast that occurred in the south of the country, between the towns of Srifa and Deir Kifa. According to some of the reports, the blast targeted espionage devices which were destroyed by Israel after being exposed by Hezbollah.

However, a different report suggested that there had been an explosion in a Hezbollah weapons cache, while others reported an accident in a nearby quarry.

A website associated with Hezbollah claimed that the organization had uncovered Israeli espionage equipment at the site of Friday's blast, and that Israel managed to destroy it using drones.

Lebanon Now website reported that Hezbollah members surrounded the scene of the blast and local police were called to the scene. The website added that Israeli drones were spotted in the vicinity.

Last week, an explosion occurred in the Hezbollah stronghold of Siddiqin in southern Lebanon. The blast apparently occurred at a large Hezbollah weapons depot.
