A military source said a BMW in the southern port city of Sidon "detonated, wounding Hamas official Mohammed Hamdan".
A vehicle explosion rocked the Lebanese southern city of Sidon on Sunday and injured its owner who was identified as Mohammed Hamdan, the Lebanese army said in a statement.
The target, Mohamed Hamdan, was not a publicly known Hamas figure in Lebanon and did not appear to have a public or political role.More news: Got Batteries? Power Outage Stalls CES Gadget Show
Hamas did not immediately issue a statement on the blast.
Lebanese security forces imposed a security cordon around the site of the blast.
Hamdan was reportedly conscious following the attack, and was rapidly transferred to a nearby hospital, the source said.More news: Bournemouth Fight Back to Shock Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday
The most densely-populated of these camps is Ain el-Hilweh, which lies near Sidon and is home to some 61,000 Palestinians, including 6,000 who have fled the war in neighbouring Syria.
Local media reported that Hamas had released a statement denying that any of its officials had been killed in the attack.
The group has previously accused Israel of being involved in the assassination of a number of its members inside and outside Palestine.More news: Democrats Will Attempt to Censure Trump After 'S**thole Countries' Remark
