Lebanon: Civilians Unharmed by Army

“During the past couple of days, media and many blogs have been reporting the cruel racist targeting of innocent Palestinian civilians by the Lebanese Army. Some even went as far as comparing the Lebanese Army with the Israeli and American ones, and how they all share a common interest in targeting innocent civilians,” writes Lebanese blogger FaiLaSooF.
“To all those, I'd like you to go visit the Lebanese Army official site here, and there, and see how throughout three days of clashes with the terrorist organization Fath-l-Islam, only ONE civilian was killed, and only 19 were injured. I think if we were targeting civilians, the casualties would have been much much higher, don't you think? Not to mention all the aid the Army as well as the Lebanese Red Cross provided for all the refugees who escaped Naher-l-Bared camp.”


  • Wrong.
    These numbers (1 killed and 19 wounded) refer ONLY to those who were evacuated by red cross only. (the army’s announcemnt in newspapers today assure this fact)
    Palestinian sources talk about almost 100 wounded and 20 civilian killed. till an official report is out, Plz be sure before simply qouting others.

  • Dear Hilal,
    The whole point of the Global Links is to “quote” or refer to what bloggers around the world are talking about.
