Lebanon's Speaker of the House Nabih Berri said that the two terrorist crimes that targeted Tripoli on Friday and Beirut the previous week were perpetrated by the same hand.

"These two terrorist crimes are perpetrated by the same hand," Berri said in a statement released on Friday. 

Targeting neighborhoods mostly inhabited by the Sunnis, the explosions killed 27 people, while wounding 352 others after the Friday prayer.

Blasts in Beirut's southern district Ruweis, known as the castle of Hezbollah, had killed 24 people and wounded at least 300 last Thursday.
