3 days of fighting in Lebanon.

Here is the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp, at the northern Lebanon, 4 miles North of Tripoli. At this camp, Lebanese army and militants of Fatah Islam group has been being fighting since yesterday Sunday.

According to Yahoo news: "Lebanese troops pounded a Palestinian refugee camp with artillery and tank fire for a second day Monday, raising huge columns of smoke as they battled a militant group suspected of ties to al-Qaida in the worst violence since the end of the 1975-90 civil war."

Here are pictures:

According to, "In what observers say is the worst fighting to hit Tripoli in two decades, army tanks opened fire on positions inside Nahr al-Bared camp held by militants from Fatah Islam, a Sunni al-Qaeda-styled group. ". "Sunday's violence began shortly after dawn when police raided a militant-occupied apartment on a major thoroughfare in Tripoli.

Authorities said police were looking for suspects of a bank robbery a day earlier in Amyoun, a town southeast of Tripoli. Local media reported the gunmen to be members of Fatah Islam. The armed militants resisted arrest and a gun battle ensued. It spread to surrounding streets and continued through the afternoon."

Editor's note :
Kindly note that the videos were from CCN so hear the bad news but be reserved with their usual mediacracy of "Al Qaedah" related terror in the making and quick in "Bushism terror resolution" of sending in military might. Do you think by making a warlord out of Sinora or his successor will ever solve the issue.
