Opposition Makes List of Future Movement Attacks

07/06/2008 The ruling bloc is exploiting the Lebanese National Opposition's commitment to the Doha Agreement article on stopping media campaigns and incitement to portray itself and its supporters as the victims of alleged attacks by opposition supporters.

The Lebanese National Opposition issued a memorandum to President Michel Suleiman, Speaker Nabih Berri and PM-designate Fouad Saniora as well as the Lebanese Army and Internal Security Forces commands. The paper included a list of attacks [since the Doha conference was being held] against citizens by Mustakbal (Future Movement) cadres and individuals.

According to opposition sources, the memorandum included 37 incidents in the Tarik el-Jdideh region (the stronghold of Future Movement) with at least three shooting incidents, tossing grenades, beating, stabbing, tossing stones, threatening families and store owners, erecting roadblocks and checking the IDs of passengers, burning factories, banning the owners of some damaged stores from rebuilding them and attacking other stores and motorcycles.

The memorandum said that these attacks have also targeted many employees working in firms located in the Tariq el-Jdideh region.
It also listed the names of 28 perpetrators, including a member of an official security service and two other Palestinians affiliated with the Future Movement.

The paper also listed a number of attacks against civilians in the Na'meh and Haret el-Na'meh regions as well as the names of 16 perpetrators, all of them Future Movement members.
The memorandum added that the assailants who attacked Hussein Baghdadi in the Bshamoun region were also members of the Future Movement.

According to the memorandum, the Masna' region (near the border with Syria) had witnessed cases of kidnap carried out by Future Movement members just when the Doha conference was being held. It added that Tripoli had witnessed similar cases as well as attacks on residents and stores.

The memorandum stated in detail what happened when a Lebanese army vehicle carrying two arrested individuals in the Mal'ab al-Baladi region was attacked, the two arrested young men were nearly stabbed to death and soldiers were beaten by Future Movement members including Imad Zaghloul who was shot and injured two days ago in Beirut.
