Mohammed Hamdan suffered a leg injury on Sunday after a bomb planted in his vehicle detonated, Hamas' media group said in a statement.

A blast destroyed a vehicle in the southern Lebanese city of Sidon, injuring a member of the Palestinian group Hamas, Al-Manar TV reported.

Hamas leader Jihad Taha blamed Israel for the attack.

According to a medical source at the scene, Hamdan, whose nom de guerre is Abu Hamzah, suffered serious injuries to his legs while opening the door of his silver BMW.


Lebanese security forces imposed a security cordon around the site of the blast.

Local media reported that Hamas had released a statement denying that any of its officials had been killed in the attack.

Hamas has fought three wars with Israel in the past decade and is based in the Gaza strip, but it operates branches elsewhere in the Middle East including Lebanon.

Sidon, which lies some 40 kilometres south of the capital Beirut, is home to two of Lebanon's 12 Palestinian refugee camps.
