The PLO gunmen fired on the Phalangists killing 4 people.Minutes before the bus was massacred, 4 Lebanese were killed by your fellow PLos in front of a church, out of which Joseph Abou Assi was the first martyr to die on the hands of the Plo, the bus was massacred out of fear that the bus is carrying out another drive by shootings minutes after the first shooting, go get your facts straight we are not responsible for the start of the civil war, it is the illegal weapons in the hands of the palestinians and the Syrian undercover agents who were mainly Lebanese Muslims and Palestinian Muslims..
The Maronites have nothing to do with your misery, we were not doing any killings, before 1975, thousands of Lebanese Christians were kidnapped and killed in Tel Zaatar on check points way before 1975.
The proper response would have been to bring the killers to justice or, in the worst scenario, fire back at the PLO.
The wise Phalanges leadership chose to respond by massacring 28 passengers (including women and children) who had nothing to do with the previous attack.
I insist. Maronites started the Civil War.
