Lebanese blogger Abu Kais updates us [1] on the latest fighting in Lebanon between the Lebanese Army and Fateh el Islam.
“The Siniora [2] government is waging this war with the support of the international community and the Arab League, which issued a statement supporting the army's operation. The ‘opposition’, meanwhile, continues its occupation of downtown Beirut, even as the city is being targeted on a daily basis. Hizbullah [3] today issued a statement describing the events in the north as an “American project”, and ignoring, once again, the destructive role Fatah al-Islam is playing (LBC News). As the Lebanese army storms the Islamist hell, armed with unprecedented popular support, Hizbullah stands on the other side of that hell, feeling the heat of the rule of law,” he explains.
