Description

This two-part report sheds a light on how men from certain Christian villages in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley that are close to the Syrian border are taking up arms to protect their communities from possible attacks by Wahhabi militants from across the Syrian border, from the Qalamoun mountainous area. The purpose, according to people who were interviewed, is mainly to protect the villages in case of a surprise attack until the Lebanese Army arrives. The presence of thousands of terrorists from the Islamic State (IS, aka ISIL or ISIS) and the al-Qaeda affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra at a distance that is less than 2.5 Km from certain villages has already proven a dangerous situation, as incursions by the militants into Lebanon have already taken place within the last few months, including carrying out attacks against the Lebanese Army.
