Hamdan was transferred to hospital, while security forces cordoned the area and firefighters rushed to the scene.

Hamas did not immediately issue a statement on the blast. "The incident has Israeli fingerprints", Mounir al-Maqdah, the Fatah official, told Reuters.The blast took place around noon (1000 GMT), the Lebanese army said in a statement.

Sidon is home to the largest Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon.
