Una soflama del lider del grupo terrorista Fatah al Islam en Alyazeera, traducida por cortesía del MEMRI
Shaker Al-'Absi: We have not threatened Lebanon's security. The people who are threatening the security of Lebanon are those who take pride in their record, which is full of black crimes against humanity. To those who blabber about the attack against the army, we say that he who attacked both the army and us is one and the same. It is... It committed the heinous crime in Tripoli recently, which resulted in the burning of 17 lions of monotheism.

[...]

To you who follow the American plan, we say that the Sunnis will be the spearhead in the fighting against the Jews, the Americans, and their supporters.

Se reanudan los combates entre el ejército libanés y los terroristas de Fatah al Islam. De momento, casi 40 terroristas abatidos.
Army Offers 'Surrender' to Fatah al-Islam as its Defenses Collapse
At least 36 militants from Fatah al-Islam were killed in fierce clashes with the Lebanese army in north Lebanon's Nahr al-Bared Palestinian refugee camp Friday, reliable sources told Naharnet.

The Lebanese army command, meanwhile, urged Fatah al-Islam terrorists to surrender. "The army command calls on the gunmen to surrender to justice, and underlines its determination to continue to track them down until this is achieved," an army communiqué said.

The communiqué urged "our Palestinian brothers not to provide safe haven to these criminals, and expel them from among the innocent civilians." "Army units have pursued their field operations around Nahr al-Bared camp in order to control buildings and areas that the gunmen are infiltrating to in order to open sniper fire on military and civilian centers," it added.

The army "succeeded in destroying their bases and controlling them with fire power, while further tightening its grip on them and foiling any attempts to infiltration" out of the camp "There were many casualties among their (the militants) ranks, and some of them have fled while others have hidden among civilians in order to use them as human shields," he communiqué added

The army, according to reliable sources, launched a three-pronged attack against Fatah al-Islam terrorists from the northern, eastern and southern flanks of the camp, 82 kilometers north of Beirut. Army troops backed by a heavy curtain of artillery fire punched through Fatah al-Islam defenses from the north and east destroying the terrorists' hideouts at the old naval base, the Samed and Khan buildings.

One source said a 12-man Fatah al-Islam squad was "wiped out" by army fire as it tried to in filtrate out of the camp along the Nahr al-Bared river runway on the southern edge of the camp. The route, the source explained, leads to the rough mountainous range overlooking the northern town of Tripoli, where the terrorists had apparently aimed to spread and hide.

The army, according the source, has blocked the terrorists' escape route to the mountains and the mere fact that they are trying to escape means that they there defenses are collapsing. Another Fatah al-Islam squad tried to escape by boat across Mediterranean waters from the northern sector of the camp, in an apparent effort to head to neighboring Syria, 10 kilometers further north, but they were killed by army shelling, the source said.

Fatah al-Islam also lost eight fighters in the samed building and six in the Khan, he added. Army troops also arrested four Fatah al-Islam fighters, one of them wounded, at Samed Building, the source disclosed.

Smoke billowed from the northern and eastern flanks of the camp as the thuds of exploding artillery shells echoed across the northern province.
Army gunners pounded Fatah al-Islam bases and outposts with 155-mm howitzers and tank cannons with "precision" to avoid inflicting casualties among the camp's civilian population which declined to less than 3.000 people, Palestinian sources told Naharnet.

A Palestine Liberation organization (PLO) source said the army was "exerting exceptional efforts to pacify civilians, most of whom have evacuated the camp in the past 12 days."

The camp's original population was estimated at 30.000 people before the clashes broke out 12 days ago between Fatah al-Islam and the army.

PLO ambassador to Lebanon Abbas Zaki told reporters after meeting Premier Fouad Saniora earlier in the day the camp was more like "a hijacked plane or ship. It has been hijacked by Fatah al-Islam which does not represent the Palestinian people."

He declared support for the Lebanese government's efforts to stabilize the situation, stressing that a stable situation was in the interest of both the Palestinian and Lebanese peoples.

The Saniora government accuses Syria of sponsoring Fatah al-Islam to destabilize Lebanon, from which it was forced to withdraw in April 2005, nearly two months after the assassination of ex-Premier Rafik Hariri.

Syria denies the charge.

Los terroristas de Fatah al Islam amenazan con extender la guerra a todo Líbano
NAHR AL-BARED, Lebanon (Reuters) - Al Qaeda-inspired militants in north Lebanon threatened on Wednesday to take their fight to other parts of the country and beyond if the Lebanese army did not stop attacking a Palestinian refugee camp.

"If the army continues to bomb civilians and pursue its inhumane practices ... we will move within the next two days to the second phase of the battle," Fatah al-Islam military commander Shahin Shahin told Reuters by telephone from the camp.

"We will show them the capabilities of Fatah al-Islam, starting with Lebanon and then moving to the whole of Greater Syria," he said, using a term intended to include what is now Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian territories.
Por otra parte, Líbano informa que ha interceptado un cargamento de armas para esta banda cerca de la frontera siria, aunque hay medios que han publicado que el destino era Hezbollah
Authorities Seize Truckload of Arms Coming From Syria, Discover Explosives Depot

The Lebanese army seized a truckload of weapons coming from Syria intended for use in new battle fronts to ease pressure on Fatah al-Islam militants locked up in fierce fighting with army troops trying to crush the terrorists entrenched inside the Palestinian refugee camp of Nahr al-Bared.

The daily An Nahar on Wednesday said Lebanese authorities also discovered a depot containing more than 200 kilograms of explosives in house raids on suspected Fatah al-Islam militants in the northern Akkar province. Meanwhile, Lebanese troops maintained their siege of Nahr al-Bared for a 17th day, fighting on-again off-again gunbattles with militants on Wednesday.

Security officials told the Associated Press the arms belonged to Hizbullah. They said the shipment of Grad rockets and ammunition for automatic rifles and machine guns was seized late Tuesday at a random army checkpoint at Douriss near Baalbek, a Hizbullah stronghold in east Lebanon's Bekaa valley.

Six Hizbullah members in the truck were let go but the confiscated weapons were taken to the nearby Ablah army barracks, the officials said. There was no immediate comment from Hizbullah on the weapons' seizure.

An Nahar said the truck driver, who was not identified, was arrested. It quoted witnesses on the scene as saying that the driver tried to turn away from the checkpoint after he was taken by surprise, but that military vehicles intercepted the truck and arrested the motorist.

Under a U.N. Security Council resolution that halted last summer's fighting between Israel and Hizbullah, any transfer of weapons to groups other than the government is illegal. The shipment's destination was not known. But An Nahar said the arms cache was planned for use in warfronts to be opened elsewhere in Palestinian refugee camps after attempts to start a warfront at the southern refugee camp of Ain al-Hilweh failed.

Islamic militants in Ain al-Hilweh clashed with Lebanese troops on Sunday in an attempt to ease the military pressure on allied Fatah al-Islam guerrillas. But Palestinian factions swiftly met and formed a joint disengagement force to quell the Ain al-Hilweh battles.

Back to the explosives depot, An Nahar said the army and police carried out house raids after nightfall Tuesday on the villages of Ayyat and al-Borj in the al-Joumah area in Akkar. It said the explosives were found at the house of a suspected Fatah al-Islam militant detained four days ago.(Naharnet-AP)

Análisis del Instituto MEMRI sobre Fatah al Islam y la inteligencia siria.

Syrian Efforts to Deny Fath Al-Islam Affiliation With Syrian Intelligence
By H. Varulkar*

Introduction

Following the exposure of an affiliation between Fath Al-Islam and Syrian intelligence during the interrogation of Fath Al-Islam members, Syrian and pro-Syrian elements and media have been making efforts to deny this affiliation. Fath Al-Islam leaders with connections to Syria have suddenly disappeared, to be replaced by new leaders, claimed to be connected to Al-Qaeda. In addition, one of the organization's new leaders and a pro-Syrian Lebanese source have stated that Fath Al-Islam is under the command of Al-Qaeda, a claim that was firmly denied by the organization's previous leadership.


Fath Al-Islam Detainees: The Organization Has Ties With the Head of the Syrian Military Intelligence

Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Siniora accused Syria of being behind the events in Nahr Al-Bared based on information exposed in interrogations of Fath Al-Islam members. In an interview on the TV channel France24, he said that the interrogations had revealed a connection between Fath Al-Islam and some of the Syrian intelligence apparatuses, and that it was mistaken to characterize the organization as an arm of Al-Qaeda. Siniora also called on the Syrians to monitor the border in order to prevent the infiltration of people and arms into Lebanon. [1]

Many other media reports in the last few weeks stated that Fath Al-Islam detainees had admitted a connection between their organization and Syrian intelligence.

The first report, published June 8, 2007 in the Kuwaiti daily Al-Rai, concerned a detainee named Muhammad Suleiman Mar'i. According to Al-Rai, Mar'i had revealed in his interrogation that his elder brother, Ahmad Mar'i, who is a senior leader in Fath Al-Islam, had close ties with the head of Syrian military intelligence, Assef Shawkat. Muhammad Mar'i explained that his brother had served as the chief liaison between Assef Shawkat and Fath Al-Islam leader Shaker Al-Abs.

In this capacity, he would pass instructions from Syria to Al-Absi, and occasionally would also convey Al-Absi's requests to Shawkat. With the help of Shawkat's men, his brother had also managed to smuggle into northern Lebanon an explosives expert from Al-Qaeda known as Abu Ahmad Al-Iraqi, and later to smuggle him back into Syria. [2]

Additional media reports, bringing information obtained from other Fath Al-Islam detainees, also stated that Ahmad Mar'i was the liaison between Syrian intelligence, Al-Qaeda and Fath Al-Islam, and that the Syrian intelligence had used his services in order to smuggle fighters to Nahr Al-Bared across the Syrian border. [3]

Fath Al-Islam Leaders With Ties to Syria Disappear From the Media

Following the exposure of the organization's ties with Syria, several Fath Al-Islam leaders who were imprisoned in Syria and released by the Syrian authorities - including Al-Absi and his deputy Shihab Al-Qaddour, known as Abu Hurairah - stopped appearing in the media. Rumors started to circulate that Al-Absi and Abu Hurairah had been wounded or killed in battle, or had even left the organization. Their place was taken by a new leader, known as Shahin Shahin, who is apparently serving both as the spokesman of Fath Al-Islam and as its military commander.

The disappearance of the leaders was confirmed by Islamist preacher Fathi Yakan, known to be close to the Syrian regime, who claims to have mediated the negotiation attempts between Fath Al-Islam and the Lebanese authorities in the past few weeks.

On June 8, one day after the publication of Mari's information about the ties between Fath Al-Islam and Syrian intelligence, Yakan stated that the mediation attempts had run into difficulties owing to the sudden disappearance of the Fath Al-Islam leaders. "It seems," he said, "that something has happened in Nahr Al-Bared which has caused some of the Fath Al-Islam leaders to stop appearing [in public] and holding negotiations. Now, our only option is to negotiate with the [organization's] information officer, Shahin Shahin. This has complicated matters, [since] we are [no longer] meeting with the [organization's top] leader or hearing anything from him. In the past, we dealt with the head of the organization, Shaker Al-Absi, but now we are dealing with a different man, and we do not know what his status in the organization is, and to what extent he is authorized [to conduct negotiations]..." [4]

Who is Shahin Shahin?

A June 9, 2007report in the pro-Syrian Lebanese daily Al-Safir described Shahin as the Fath Al-Islam spokesman. According to this report, Shahin denied the rumors that Al-Absi and Abu Hurairah had been wounded, but confirmed that changes had been made in the organization leadership, saying that "circumstances [brought about] by the fighting forced [Fath Al-Islam] to make some changes on the ground." [5] The Pro-Syrian Lebanese daily Al-Akhbar presented Shahin as a Fath Al-Islam field commander, but later described him as the organization's "new leader in the field." [6]

Abu Mus'ab, a second tier leader in Fath Al-Islam, told the London daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat that the leadership of the organization had passed from Shaker Al-Absi and his deputy Abu Hurairah to the Saudi Shahin Shahin, also known as Abu Salma, after the former two leaders had disappeared. He said that Shahin was both the spokesman of the organization and its military commander, and that he served as the liaison between Fath Al-Islam and Al-Qaeda. According to Abu Mus'ab, Shahin came to Lebanon from North Africa and is accompanied by four comrades - masked men from Yemen and Saudi Arabia. Abu Mus'ab also added that Shahin "approves Shaker Al-Absi's statements to the media and signs them, since he is in charge of the organization's funding." [7]

In her column in Al-Sharq Al-Awsat, Sawsan Al-Abtah wondered about the disappearance of Fath Al-Islam's leaders and about who was really behind the organization:

"Suddenly, Shaker Al-Abs, the founder of Fath Al-Islam, has disappeared - as has senior military leader Abu Hurairah, who they say directed the battles against the Lebanese army at Nahr Al-Bared. Another leader who disappeared is Abu Salim Taha, known as the organization's spokesman, who maintained almost daily contact with journalists via cellphone...

"Instead of the three who disappeared... one man appeared. This man, Shahin Shahin, talks to journalists and negotiates with mediators, and they say he is now also directing the military battles in the refugee camp. Shahin's comrades in the organization call him 'Abu Salma'..." [8]

Further on in her column, Al-Abtah states that Shahin's appearance is nothing new, and that he had been mentioned several times as spokesman for the organization in March 2007. Al-Abtah tells how, in February 2007, she interviewed Shaker Al-Abs with Shahin Shahin sitting at his side and listening to every word, and how, every so often, he would pass notes to Al-Abs. She said that Shahin Shahin disappeared in March 2007 after Fath Al-Islam was accused of carrying out the bombing in the Christian town of Ain Alaq, and reappeared only a few days ago. [In the wake of this February 2007 bombing, the Lebanese security apparatuses arrested several Syrians belonging to Fath Al-Islam who said that they had received instructions and funds from Syrian intelligence, and had even been trained by them. [9] ]

Al-Abtah wrote that those who knew Al-Abs and Abu Hurairah said that they were not fighters or ground personnel at all, and that it was difficult to believe that they were waging a battle like the one at Nahr Al-Bared. "Therefore," she concluded, "one has to wonder who the real leader of Fath Al-Islam is at Nahr Al Bared, and who is directing the blood-soaked battles... Were Shaker Al-Abs and his deputy Abu Hurairah set up as a Palestinian-Lebanese front in order to camouflage the identity of others who are more influential and who led [the organization]? There are also those who claim that Abu Salma does not have the tremendous capability that we think he has. If so, who are the experienced [commanders] who are directing this ongoing hell...?" [10]

It should be noted that there is another individual in the organization, named Shahin Al-Shami, who was described by the Syrian government daily Teshreen as a Fath Al-Islam field commander. [11] It is not clear whether Shahin Al-Shami is the same person as the one called Shahin Shahin, who is being presented as the new leader of Fath Al-Islam, especially since statements by the two are contradictory. While Shahin Shahin has denied any connection to Al-Qaeda, Shahin Al-Shami has said that Fath Al-Islam belongs to Al-Qaeda. Nevertheless, a Palestinian Clerics Association member, Sheikh Ali Yousef, who is now conducting the negotiations between Fath Al-Islam and the Lebanese authorities, has said that it is indeed the same person. [12]

Pro-Syrian Sheikh Fathi Yakan: Fath Al-Islam Has Become a Subordinate of Al-Qaeda

In addition to the disappearance of the Fath Al-Islam leaders connected to Syria, any link between Fath Al-Islam and Syria was denied on the argument that international Al-Qaeda had taken over Fath Al-Islam. This came despite the fact that the previous Fath Al-Islam leaders had repeatedly denied any connection between their organization and Al-Qaeda.

On June 10, 2007, Fathi Yakan, announcing that his mediation attempts with Fath Al-Islam had come to naught, said, "It appears that the negotiations [are no longer decided at the local level of] the Nahr Al-Bared camp, and that international Al-Qaeda has taken the matter of Fath Al-Islam upon itself, and taken it over. This complicates matters... [since we] have not been able to reach the decision-maker, and have therefore come to a dead end." Yakan rejected the claim that Syrian intelligence was directing Fath Al-Islam, stating, "Whoever says this is running from the responsibility and from the truth, and using the Syrian side as a pretext, on which it pins his failure every time there is a security incident in Lebanon. This is exactly what happened with the assassination of Rafiq Al-Hariri - we saw how the accusations were prepared in advance and were leveled at one element only." [13]

Similarly, the Lebanese daily Al-Nahar reported that on June 10, 2007, following the televised confession of detainee Ahmad Mar'i (in which he confirmed Fath Al-Islam's connections with Assef Shawkat and another senior Syrian official), Shah in Al-Shami published a communiqué announcing that Fath Al-Islam belonged to Al-Qaeda, and that the organization had sworn allegiance to Abu Bakr Al-Sa'udi as emir instead of Al-Abs. [14]

The Syrian government daily Teshreen stated that Shah in Al-Shami had denied any connection between Fath Al-Islam and Syria. [15]

Los terroristas de Fatah al Islam responden lanzando cohetes katyusha contra los libaneses.
Katyushas Fired into North Lebanon as Army Steps Up Pressure on Militants

Fatah al-Islam militants on Friday fired salvos of Katyusha rockets that crashed into north Lebanon as the Lebanese army stepped up its military pressure on the terrorists holed up in the besieged camp of Nahr al-Bared for nearly eight weeks.

Lebanese artillery and tank guns pounded Fatah al-Islam hideouts in the old sector of the Nahr al-Bared camp on the outskirts of Lebanon's northern port city of Tripoli, sending black smoke billowing in the sky over the shantytown.

In an apparent attempt to ease the army pressure and expand the battles outside the camp, Fatah al-Islam militants unleashed a total of 11 Katyushas that landed in different regions of north Lebanon before noon Friday, according to the state-run National News Agency.

A total of 11 rockets crashed into villages neighboring the refugee camp, as well as in orange and grape groves, security officials and the state-run National News Agency said.

No casualties were reported in the Katyusha attacks.

NNA said five rockets landed in the plains of Arqa and Beit Hadara in north Lebanon's Akkar province early Friday, causing damage to orange and grape groves.

It said another three Katyushas crashed two hours later in the Minieh and Deir Emar neighborhoods, setting a civilian car on fire.

Shortly afterwards, three other projectiles smashed almost simultaneously into different areas of north Lebanon, including Arqa plains and Qaabrine near the highway linking Lebanon with Syria, according to NNA.

Future TV said 15 Fatah al-Islam terrorists were also killed Friday when they tried to attack a Lebanese army position outside Nahr al-Bared.

The fighting erupted on May 20 when the Islamist militants launched a string of attacks on soldiers, killing 27 of them around the camp and in Tripoli, according to the army.

The Lebanese government has vowed to wipe out Fatah al-Islam, a shadowy band of Arab Islamist fighters inspired by the ideology of Osama bin Laden's terror network.

On Friday, a seventh soldier was killed in clashes between the military and dozens of the Islamist holdouts in the camp, an army spokesman told AFP.

Along with the bombardment, soldiers and Islamists were also locked in heavy exchanges of gunfire on the ground, a correspondent at the scene said.

A civilian on a road outside the camp was also killed on Thursday, but the Islamists' losses were unknown as they have been out of contact from inside the bombed-out shantytown for several weeks.

"Our soldiers are moving forward slowly but surely, from building to building, towards the positions of the terrorists who have booby-trapped buildings, rubble and alleyways," the army spokesman said.

He said military engineers were working alongside the elite units of the army.

About 80 remaining Fatah al-Islam fighters are being supported by dozens of pro-Syrian Palestinian militants, according to a Palestinian source, citing the mainstream Palestinian activists who were evacuated.

Apart from the fighters and their families, only a small number of civilians are believed to be left cowering in the camp, whose estimated 30,000 population has fled in several waves since the battle of Nahr al-Bared erupted on May 20.

After a siege which has lasted almost eight weeks, Prime Minister Fouad Saniora has called for the army to "put a final end" to the Fatah al-Islam "terrorists", in an apparent green light to storm the camp.

The latest deaths have brought to 182 the number of people killed, including 93 soldiers and at least 68 Islamists.(Naharnet-AFP)

Guia del panorama terrorista en los campos de refugiados palestinos en Líbano.

Introduction

The poor social conditions and lack of hope in Lebanon’s Palestinian refugee camps have long made them susceptible to the clarion call of extremism. In the 1960s and 1970s, it was a blend of left-wing politics and nationalism that drove the then-mainstream Palestinian militant groups like Yasser Arafat’s Fatah Movement and George Habash’s Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). But the general swing in the Middle East toward Islamic extremism in the 1980s also took root in the fertile soil of the Palestinian refugee camps. In Lebanon’s camps, Islamist militancy was initially restricted mainly to the Hamas Movement, the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood which was born in the late 1980s during the First Intifada against the Israeli occupation of the Palestine.

But the growing prominence in the mid-1990s of Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda’s violent ideology of global jihad helped spawn many more radical factions in the Palestinian camps. These new groups paid lip service to Palestine, but essentially followed a pan-Islamic agenda in which nation states give way to the umma, the one nation of Muslim believers. Rather than attacking Israel or defending the Palestinians, these groups were more interested in striking at Western “Crusader” targets and thwarting Western ambitions in Arab and Islamic lands.

Malas noticias para el Líbano; nuevas amenazas, esta vez procedentes del grupo Tawhid and Jihad in Siria. Tawhid and Jihad (monoteísmo y guerra santa) fueron las primeras siglas elegidas por el felizmente finado al Zarqawi en Irak antes de reconvertirse en al Qaeda en la tierra de Mesopotamia.
Threats of imminent terrorist attacks
August 13, 2007
An Islamic group called ‘Tawhid and Jihad in Syria’ said that some militants of Fatah al-Islam managed to escape from Nahr al-Bared Palestinian refugee camp.

Abu Jandal al-Dimashqi, the group leader, warned of imminent attacks and vowed to avenge the death of Fatah al-Islam second in command Abu Hureira.

“The martyrdom of our brother Abu Hureira has fanned the flames. Let the government of traitor Siniora know that some of Fatah al-Islam's heroes have left the camp and are now among you. Wait for a black day.”

Al-Dimashqi statement was broadcasted by an Islamic Website on Sunday. He also criticized the residents of Abu Hureira's village for refusing to bury him in the town's cemetery.

Three of the 136 soldiers who have fallen during the confrontations at Nahr al-Bared were from Mishmish, Abu Hureira’s hometown.

The Associated Press reported that the Lebanese army took the statement “seriously”. However, the army’s actions “are not based on statements posted on the Internet, but on military plans,” said a military spokesman.

(AFP) Lebanese soldiers flash the V sign

The Lebanese army took full control on Sunday of a refugee camp where it has besieged rebels for the past three months.

NAHR AL-BARED, Lebanon (AFP) - The Lebanese army took full control on Sunday of a refugee camp where it has besieged rebels for the past three months, an army officer told AFP.

Nahr al-Bared Battle Ends in Lebanese Victory

The Nahr al-Bared battle ended Sunday in a Lebanese victory after the army foiled a desperate attempt by diehard Fatah al-Islam terrorists to escape the refugee camp, killing at least 37 militants.

The Nahr al-Bared camp, a honeycomb of tunnels and houses reinforced against possible Israeli air attack, finally fell to a mass assault after Islamists made a last-ditch pre-dawn attempt to flee the siege, army and security sources said.

Another 15 Fatah al-Islam militants were arrested, some of whom had managed to make it to nearby villages but were caught in the manhunt that included troops searching roofs and nearby fields.

More than 220 people, including 158 Lebanese troops, were killed during the standoff which started on May 20 near the sprawling camp outside the northern city of Tripoli. Three soldiers died in Sunday's fighting.

Thousands of people converged on the camp after news broke in the afternoon that the army had overrun the camp, as troops fired celebratory volleys into the air and flashed the "V" for victory sign.

Premier Fouad Saniora hailed the courage of the soldiers, saying in a televised speech Sunday night that the army's takeover of the Nahr al-Bared camp was the "biggest national victory against terrorists."

The army said the final showdown on Nahr al-Bared began at about 3:30 am (0030 GMT) after the militants attempted to break out on three fronts, including by sea, but most were killed or captured.

"What they did today was launch a suicidal operation in a desperate bid to flee," an army spokesman said.

Troops throughout the day combed fields around the camp and raided nearby homes while search operations focused on nearby villages where some militants were killed or captured.

An army officer said Shaker al-Abssi, leader of the group linked ideologically to Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida, appeared to have escaped while other reports said he was dead.

The camp was home to some 30,000 Palestinian refugees, most of whom fled in the early days of the confrontation and have since been housed at the nearby camp of Beddawi.

The army urged the refugees not to seek to return to Nahr al-Bared until they received the all clear.

About 11:00 am, the fighting had died down and the army said it was no longer encountering any resistance.

Several Lebanese Red Cross ambulances containing body bags were seen leaving the area, sirens blaring.

The army issued a statement appealing to residents of nearby villages to help in the search for militants who may be on the run.
In their pre-dawn breakout attempt the militants also had help from outside, a security source said.

"A Mercedes car pulled up at an army checkpoint on the eastern edge of the camp and began firing at soldiers as fighters launched an attack from inside," said the source.

Militants attacked another checkpoint at the same time.

The source said three people in the Mercedes were killed. The white vehicle, windows shattered and tires flat, was seen being towed away in mid-morning.

The army cordoned off the area closed the nearby road linking Tripoli to Syria to traffic.(AFP-Naharnet)

Aunque la esposa del finado Shaker al-Abssi reconoció su cuerpo, las pruebas de ADN no dejan las cosas claras
DNA Result Reportedly Did Not Match Abssi's
The first round of DNA tests conducted on Fatah al-Islam's terrorist mastermind Shaker Abssi did not match him, media reports said.
The report on Gen. Michel Aoun's OTV came as a surprise to the Palestinian Scholars Association (PSA).

Sheik Ali Youssef, a PSA member, on Thursday said the Association did not yet receive any official DNA outcome.

"I was shocked at the news that preceded the final results," Youssef told LBC's Naharkom Saeed talk show.

Abssi's wife on Monday identified his corpse at the public hospital in the northern town of Tripoli.

However, the daily An Nahar on Thursday, citing judicial sources, said state Prosecutor Saeed Mirza has not yet received the final DNA results that would determine the fatality's identity.

The sources said further forensic DNA testing would be conducted before a definite answer is given.

An Nahar also said Thursday that the death of Fatah al-Islam's spokesman Abu Salim Taha has not been confirmed.

Youssef backed up An Nahar's report, saying Abu Taha's fate remains unknown after his wife, who went to a Tripoli morgue to identify him, said that the corpse was not that of her husband.

Abssi's wife identified the corpse as that of her husband Shaker Abssi, hospital manager Nasser Adra told reporters on Monday. He did not disclose further details.

Abssi was killed along with 31 fellow terrorists in a major showdown with the Lebanese Army that ended the Nahr al-Bared battle which broke out on May 20.

De todas formas, aunque esta vez se les ha derrotado, los libaneses están seguros de que el terrorismo islamista suní volverá a reaparecer.
La necesidad permite lo prohibido.
