Another work accident for the Religion of Peace.

Lebanon: Another Palestinian "refugee swamp camp".:
Looks like Mohamed and his cousin won't be down for breakfast this morning...

An explosion ripped through a tire shop in the southern Palestinian refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh as extremist militants of Jund al-Sham tried to prepare a bomb, killing two people and wounding three. Lebanese security officials said the late Monday afternoon blast went off as some of Jund al-Sham members were extracting TNT from a 107 mm shell, apparently to use it in making a bomb. Among those lightly wounded was a leader of Jund al-Sham, Shehadeh Jawhar, according to residents and Abu Sharif, the officials said.

About Jund al-Sham:
Jund al-Sham, which is Arabic for Soldiers of al-Sham -- an old Arabic word for the region of Syria, Lebanon and Jordan -- is a splinter group from another Palestinian militant group called Asbat al-Ansar based in Ain al-Hilweh.

Jund al-Sham's fighters battled Lebanese troops earlier this month, killing two soldiers, as the army fought Fatah al-Islam terrorists in the northern Palestinian refugee camp of Nahr al-Bared. Another group using the name Jund al-Sham has carried out attacks in Syria, seeking to topple its secular regime, but it is not known whether it is connected to the Ain al-Hilweh group.
