BEIRUT (Reuters) - The leader of the Lebanese group Hezbollah on Friday accused Israel of carrying out a bomb attack that wounded a member of the Palestinian group Hamas in the Lebanese city of Sidon and called it an act of aggression.

"The bomb that targeted a Hamas member in Sidon is a dangerous beginning and it is not possible to be silent about it," Nasrallah said in a televised address. He said "all indications" pointed to Israel.
