Syria last week killed two of Fateh Al Islam’s military chiefs. The statement was released last week, not by Syria – but by Fateh Al Islam in Lebanon.

“The Syrian forces killed two military chiefs of Fatah al-Islam, Abu Laith al-Shami and Abu Abdel Rahman al-Shami, as well as two combatants,” said the spokesman, who is based in north Lebanon’s Nahr al-Bared Palestinian refugee camp – where today’s clashes happened.
They had crossed into Syria from Lebanon.
More evidence, if the Lebanese government needed it, of the anti-Syrian nature of this group.
