Lebanon Rocked by Violence as Fascist Christian Militia Guns-Down Protesters

Unarmed protesters affiliated with Hezbollah and Amal were gunned down by the Saudi-backed Lebanese Forces militia in Beirut on Thursday, October 14, provoking a sectarian gun battle that risked igniting a civil war.
Why did this happen? Why are some trying to pin the blame on Hezbollah? And what’s with the media obscuring the fact that it was a fascist group behind the violence, the same group responsible for the 1982 massacre of hundreds of Palestinians in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps?
Rania Khalek, journalist and host of the Breakthrough News program Dispatches, breaks it all down.

Rania Khalek you are spreading false news. Where you there at this moment? If you were, didn’t you see the hundreds and hundreds of people from the Hezbollah and from Amal arriving fully armed with guns, rifles and RPG (rockets!) going threw a neighborhood that was really NOT where the protest was supposed to be? Can you hear/read yourself misinforming people and sleep well at night? Many videos are circulating on the web, so plz get well informed before shouting out false news and for God’s sake remove that sarcastic laugh ‘cause this is not professional at all …
