إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Security forces contained an incident during which several men assaulted a Palestinian and forced him to walk naked in a street in the northern city of Tripoli, Voice of Lebanon radio (93.3) reported on Sunday.

It said several men from Bab al-Tabbaneh neighborhood tortured Ahmed al-Mdallali, a Palestinian, and then forced him to walk naked in the street for allegedly working with the Arab Democratic Party.

VDL did not give further details and did not say if arrests were made after the incident.

The ADP has influence in Bab al-Tabbaneh's rival neighborhood of Jabal Mohsen, whose residents are majority Alawites and are known for their support of the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

As for Bab al-Tabbaneh, whose residents are Sunnis, they back the revolution against Assad.

The two neighborhoods have repeatedly witnessed deadly clashes, the latest of which were earlier this month when scores of people were killed after news broke about the death of several Salafist men in an ambush made by Syrian regime troops as they were infiltrating the town of Tall Kalakh to fight alongside the rebel Free Syrian Army.

Shameful comment. If these are your values then you are a sorry excuse for a human being. Torturing people even if they oppose you politically is only done by uncivilized savages. And supporting such behaviour can only be done by either an extremly ignorant person or an extremly evil person.

Where did you read that I encourage torture? This dude is sticking his nose in inter-Lebanese business. He's a guest in my country, if he can't behave then he should remain in his Camp OR go live in Palestine. There's nothing evil in this.

You sound like a nazi benzona. You should be sent to a camp far located in a distant jungle where you belong.

Even if you were in an island far away, you would still fight amongst eachother. Christian vs muslim, shia vs sunni, maronite vs orthodox, maronite vs druze, muslim vs druze, alawite vs sunni. Enough wishful thinking. How stupid would i be if i said (fuck the lebanese, if it werent for their shabbi7a and jihadi fighters, syria would be fine right now). That is how many lebanese reason, always blaming others instead of dealing with the main problem which is the secterian mentality that exists in the levant. If people like you found a beautiful clean island, you would turn it in to a war zone and then blame whoever isent from your tribe, religion, family or whatever other diffirence you can find.

When the $^%#& Syrians were in Lebanon, did they not participate shameful behaviour? Were the lebanese troops that fought the syrian occupation army with orange valium stripped upon surrender? And you are here to lecture us.
I hope Syria suffers another 50 years of civil war, trillions in debt, for all the pain and murders you caused in Lebanon
