Refugees Flee from the Refugee Camp
The Gateway Pundit looks at the threat by militants to escalate fighting all over Lebanon unless the Army stops chasing Fatah al-Islam. Time Magazine describes the fight within the refugee camps. Here's an excerpt from the Time story:
The exodus of refugees from this seaside camp, home to 40,000 people, was spurred by a temporary ceasefire Tuesday afternoon. The ceasefire was arranged to allow a convoy of six United Nations trucks to enter the camp to deliver food, water and medical supplies. But the convoy was struck by several mortar rounds while unloading its emergency provisions. Although none of the crew were harmed, three vehicles were damaged and had to be abandoned. The U.N. said it was unsure whether the mortar fire was from the Lebanese army ringing the camp or from the Fatah al-Islam militants holed up inside. But the drivers of the trucks said they were sure it was Fatah al-Islam. "They waited for us to stop then they opened fire. They are shooting at anything that moves inside the camp," said Ahmad, one of the truck drivers, who refused to give his full name.
