Syria kills Fateh Al Islam military chiefs

May 20th, 2007 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

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.

(Fateh Al Islam today battled the Lebanese army, killing at least 24 people – see the story below)

“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.

    Hey sasa, the Lebanese know the truth.

    We know what your president is up to, but we will be patient and we will withstand the evil perpetrated by your gutless, cowardly president..
