Hizbullah blocked the Lebanese military and UNIFIL [United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon] from arriving at the scene until after the remaining weapons were relocated. It is believed that various kinds of rockets were stored in the warehouse, from short-range, 107mm rockets, to medium-range, 122mm rockets.
The warehouse in question was a significant Hizbullah site. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is following the event's aftermath closely, as the explosion was the third of its kind in the past 14 months. The incident's location—a Hizbullah facility south of the Litani River, brings into question UN Resolution 1701, which states the area is to be demilitarized. It also stresses the Lebanese army's acquiescence in regards to Hizbullah's activity in the area, as well as the UNIFIL problematic policies, as it does nothing to stop Hizbullah's armament.
