Prime Minister Najib Mikati announced the mourning and called on The Supreme Defence Council to have a meeting on recent bomb attacks in the country. Lebanese National News Agency (NNA) quoted President Michel Sulayman who condemned the 'coward attack' (referring to Thursday's bomb attacks) as saying, "The attacks were aimed at violating the stability and resistance of Lebanon. The explosion has signs of terror organisations' and Israel's attacking styles." Thursday's terror attacks in Lebanese capital Beirut killed 21 people and left around two hundreds people wounded, security sources said. The bomb explosions took place in Ruweis region of southern Beirut where the majority of people are Shias. Around 200 people were taken to hospitals, said Lebanese Red Cross director of operations George Kittana. Communication network was damaged in the attack while security measures were strengthened in the region. A group, on the other hand, named "Group of Muslims' Mother Aise" claimed responsibility for the attacks via a video broadcast on the Internet. The spokesman of the group said the attack was the second one organised by them reminding the first attack on July 9 in southern Beirut again. Many politicians in the country released messages of condemnation on Thursday's bomb attacks. Tammam Salam, assigned to form the new government, described the attacks as "coward and barbarous". Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nebih Berri also condemned the attacks and said in a written statement, "Terrorism and crime cannot be unconnected to Israel."
