Lebanese find 20 soldiers buried in Anjar

December 4th, 2005 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Lebanese police have discovered a grave with 20 bodies in the Bekka Valley. The bodies were soldiers, feared to be war-dead. But already the fi nger of accusation is pointing at Syria.

Lebanon fought a bloody civil war for 25 years, with all factions murdering each other – the Bekka was a stronghold of Hizbollah, the Druze and the Christians. But immediately the Syrians are being blamed.

Syrian maintained one of its intelligence headquarters in Anjar until April this year – the strategic location is very close to the Syrian border, and was seen as a buffer point to stop the fighting spreading across into Syria.
