The explosion occurred near an army post in the Buhsas area in the south of the city. An explosive device planted in a car was activated by remote control, the agency said.
The attack is the second on the Lebanese military in the last two months. A similar incident at a bus station in Tripoli on August 13 killed 17 people, including 10 soldiers, and injured 45.
