Fathi Zaydan, official responsible for the Palestinian camp of Mieh Mieh in Sidon, was killed while leaving a meeting.
An explosion in the southern Lebanon city of Sidon has killed an official from the Palestinian Fatah movement on Tuesday, members of the group said.
The dead man was identified as Fathi Zaydan, a Fatah official responsible for the Palestinian camp of Mieh Mieh in Sidon.
An Al Jazeera Arabic in Beirut said Zaydan was leaving a meeting in Sidon and heading to Beirut when the blast went off.
Footage of the blast site near a Palestinian refugee camp showed a man’s body lying next to a burning vehicle.
“His identification card was found near the car which exploded, which was also his,” a source told the AFP news agency, adding it was unclear if Zaydan had been in the car at the time.
