Lebanon launches attack on militants in refugee camp

(CNN) — Lebanon’s military on Friday launched a new artillery attack on a Palestinian refugee camp north of Tripoli where Islamic militants have been holed up.

The renewed fighting comes after more than a week of relative quiet between the military and the militants of Fatah al-Islam, which is said to be affiliated with al Qaeda, inside the camp.

It was some of the heaviest daylight artillery fire seen since the start of the campaign to root out the militant faction. The fighting at the Nahr el-Bared refugee camp near Tripoli, which started May 20, is the worst internal violence since the end of Lebanon’s civil war in 1990.

What is the difference between Lebanon attacking terrorists and Israel? The answer is that the world doesn’t give a damn when Muslims kill each other, but bring in a third party and that is ok. Pathetic.

    I wonder if anyone has noticed that, wherever there are large numbers of palestinians, there is also a lot of violence.

    It’s an interesting correllation.
