Categorie: Lebanon |

There are several large refugee camps inside Lebanon that are essentially sovereign Palestinian territory — and are too dangerous for Lebanese or Westerners to enter. Now one of them has become a battleground between the Lebanese army and Islamic militants, the Associated Press reports.

    Hi David

    I’m curious about your read on the capabilities being shown by the forces in the camps – it looks to me (an unqualified observer) like hezbollah is fighting the lebanese army to a standstill. Any thoughts on what’s going on there?

  2. David Axe says:

    Good question. I’ll look into it.

    Please read the actual press reports – the group fighting the Lebanese army is Fatah Islam, a Sunni, AQ-affiliated, Syrian-backed group – not Hezbollah.

  4. David Axe says:

    Haninah: yes, of course. But the question is still a good one. And I will post my “Google investigation” on Friday.
