إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

A gang comprised of thugs in the southern city of Tyre resumed its endeavors in the city, terrorizing the residents amid the security chaos in the country, An Nahar newspaper reported on Thursday.

According to the report, the gang’s kingpin known as Wassef S. reiterates to the residents of Tyre that he enjoys a “special judicial care,” which has always saved him from continuing his sentence at prison.

The report said that he shot dead 4 citizens during the last 48 hours. His latest victim was killed on Wednesday overnight.

The rest of the victims are: Jihad al-Shiyah, Alaa Moqbel and Ashraf Hallak.

The daily reported that Wassef is freely wandering with his gun, practicing his “hobby” with a group of gunmen who are possessing guns, rifles and knives.

According to the residents of Tyre, Wassef’s criminal records include harassing passers-by and imposing taxes on shop owners in the area.

The report pointed out that several officials received lately a number of letters complaining against Wassef’s action and urging them to end his endeavors in the city.

Naharnet have a database of pictures plus they receive news. They just match news with the closest picture they have on file. No relevance.

Stop attacking a whole community because of these thugs. It is not HA's fault for protecting it. It is not the chiite community's fault.

Thumb lebanon_first 09 August 2012, 12:56

I meant It IS HA's fault. NOT the chiite community.

Funny people Hezbollah and his ilk. When it's suitable they are one community and should be treated as such and they take care of their own. New TV incident and a visit to the hospital by an official of HA.
Now they dis-own the king-pin, how conveniante...If they are not the ISF then allow the ISF into all areas under your control with NO interference from you...

They are not the justice department but they are providing cover and protection for the illegal activities of many groups, from amal's 30% tax in port Beirut to the protection of the priest kidnapper of baalbeck to the protection of the nonpayers of electricity bills to the cover of the invaders of EDL... shall I continue? I understand the chiia were ma7roumin for a long time, but it is enough. If they want to keep their weapons, they have to become extra clean and act on corruption from their community. Else they are automatically an occupying milicias of thugs.

1-About the port, I have proof due to personal experience. I was offered by the transitaire 2 choices: pay 30% duties to the gouvernment or around 20% to HA and amal.
2-Conversions are legal. Kidnappers are not legal. Noone should be allowed to "kidnap" people. Cheikh or not. Kidnappers should not be negotiated and reasoned with and allowed to get "mad". they should be jailed. Fullstop.
3- Beirut and mount lebanon are the only ones paying taxes and fees to the gouvernment. That is a fact. Some sunnite regions dont pay edl, but most chiites dont. That is a fact too. I have this from nonpartisan contacts high in EDL.

4- EDL. settlement was not fair to the state. They will make an easy exam and have everyone pass and get employed. Just a decision to save the face of bassil and defuse the crisis.
I had a lot of respect for HA, they liberated us from Israel. But now their role is over and they are turning into a thug militia like LF became in their last days before RETURNING THEIR WEAPONS.

This said, I understand that there is a huge M14 propaganda machine against HA and Aoun. And that the behemoth marketing machine is taking every opportunity to discredit M8. But the fact remain HA lost its legitimacy because it is covering thugs. And this applies to HA, Amal, SSNP. But not to FPM whose positions I respect.

Well what's one more thug, they have thousands of them in Dahieh.
