Hundreds killed, More refugees – Barely a mention in MSM

Posted by Atilla89 on September 6, 2007

Lebanon has crushed the terrorists of the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp, (aka terrorist hideout) killing dozens of civilians and hundreds of Islamists and tossing them into mass graves, and wiping out the entire camp. But nobody’s demanding United Nations investigations, nobody’s accusing Lebanon of war crimes, and nobody’s yelling about human rights violations. Double standards? You bet!

Lebanon said on Tuesday its army killed at least 222 Islamist militants from an al Qaeda-linked group in a 15-week battle at a Palestinian refugee camp in northern Lebanon.

The army finally took control of the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp on Sunday after more than three months of fierce battles, including air, sea and land bombardment against the entrenched Fatah al-Islam militants.

Defense Minister Elias al-Murr also said 202 militants were captured in the battles and an unknown number were buried in mass graves inside the largely destroyed camp. …

At least 42 civilians and 163 soldiers were killed, bringing the death toll to 427 — Lebanon’s worst internal violence since the 1975-1990 civil war.
