خاص بالصور: عمال سوريون يعتدون على نصار وكيروز “بالسكاكين” في جل الديب!





لا يمر يوم حتى نسمع فيه عن إشكال من هنا وتعدِ من هناك على المواطنين، حتى أصبحت التجاوزات المتنقلة في جميع المناطق اللبنانية من صلب حياتنا اليومية، غاب الأمن وأصبح كل من تسول له نفسه قادراً على أن يتصرف على ليلاه، يجمع رفاقه ويقرر أخذ حقه بيده بالقوة وبالسلاح والسكاكين.

وكان ينقص اللبنانيين أزمة اللاجئين السوريين التي أصبحت في صلب حياتهم اليومية، هؤلاء المنتشرون بكثافة في مناطقنا يعملون بدلاً عنا، يأخذون وظائفنا بل وأكثر أصبح كثيرون منهم يهددون حياتنا وأرواحنا ويتصرفون كانهم أصحاب الأرض.

وجديد هذا المسلسل المتنقل في مختلف مناطقنا، الإشكال الذي وقع اليوم الخميس، مع المجموعة التي تعمل في مطعم “دجاج وتوم” والتي إعتدى افراد منها بالسكاكين على أصحاب المحال المجاورة ومنها فرن “داني نصار” ومطعم “صاحبنا” لصاحبه نجيب كيروز.

وفي تفاصيل الإشكال، علم موقع “القوات اللبنانية” الإلكتروني، إن أحد العاملين السوريين، وهو يعمل كـ”valet” لدى مطعم “دجاج وتوم” عمد على ركن احدى السيارات أمام فرن “نصار” صباحاً، علماً أن ظاهرة ركن سيارات زبائن “دجاج وتوم” أمام المحلات التجارية تتكرر بشكل يومي، ما أدى إلى إستياء صاحب الفرن الذي طلب من العامل عدم ركن السيارة، فتلاسنا وتدخل أصحاب المحال المجاورة لفض الإشكال إلى أن الامر لم ينته عند هذا الحد.

وعند الساعة الثالثة من بعض الظهر، أتى العامل السوري مجدداً برفقة 30 شخصاً سورياً ودخلوا إلى الفرن وبدأوا بتكسير محتوياته إضافة إلى تكسير مطعم “صاحبنا” لصاحبه نجيب كيروز، وشهروا السكاكين وعمدوا الى طعن كل من تواجد داخل المحلّين، فأصيب داني نصار وكذلك نجيب كيروز إضافة إلى عامل يعمل لدى “نصار” الذي تعرض ايضاً لكسور في يده.

وفي إتصال مع “موقعنا” أكد كيروز إن الحادثة لن تمر مرور الكرام مشدداً على أن الإتكال هو على القوى الأمنية التي باشرت التحقيقات.

وأشار إلى ان هناك موقوفاً لدى الأجهزة الأمنية لكن إذا لم تتمكن القوى الامنية من معالجة الامر، حينها سنتدخل لأخذ حقنا ولن نسكت بعد الآن، كما اننا لسنا مكسر عصا لأحد ونعلم جيداً كيف نرد الصاع صاعين خصوصاً ان مطعم “دجاج وتوم”، معروف الهوية، ولن نقبل بأن تتعرض مصالحنا وامننا للخطر من قبل العمال السوريين الذين إستقبلناهم وأويناهم.

الوضع لم يعد يحتمل، والأجواء في المنطقة الذي حصل فيها الإشكال تنذر بالأسوأ وعلى الأجهزة الامنية عدم الإكتفاء بسياسة الامن بالتراضي، بل معالجة الوضع جدياً ووضع حد للتمادي الحاصل من قبل العمال السوريين الذين لا يأبهون لا للأمن ولا لأجهزته، ومعاقبة كل من يغطي هذه الأفعال، حتى ولو كانوا مدعومين من صاحب المطعم الذي ضرب بعرض الحائط كل الأصول وقوانين العمل اللبنانية.

1-A Lebanese teenager rapes a 5-year-old Syrian child

2-A Syrian man was shot with a pump-action shotgun on September 19 by men he believed belonged to a Lebanese political party

3-In a September 23 case, a group of Lebanese men in Rawda brutally stabbed a Syrian man, saying it was because he was out after a curfew.

For details of the attacks Human Rights Watch documented, please see below.

Cases of Violence Documented by Human Rights Watch
Human Rights Watch documented 11 cases in August and September in which Syrians in Lebanon, or people perceived to be Syrians, were violently attacked in their homes or on the street by Lebanese private citizens. Humanitarian workers informed Human Rights Watch of an additional 21 cases. Human Rights Watch was not able to investigate those cases independently.

Bourj al-Barajneh, South Beirut. Early August
While attacks against Syrians in Lebanon spiked in August and September, in some areas, like in Bourj al-Barajneh, in the Beirut suburbs, Syrians reported violent attacks and harassment by local residents as early as 2013. The attacks have since intensified. Bourj al-Barajneh, which before the conflict in Syria was the site of a Palestinian refugee camp, is home to at least 31,000 refugees including Palestinian refugees from Syria and Lebanon, and other Syrian refugees, reported a local newspaper quoting United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA).

A series of bombings in the Beirut suburbs in 2013 and 2014 were claimed by several Syrian extremist groups, including Jabhat al Nusra. One Syrian resident of the Bourj al-Barajneh camp, Yusra, whose name, as with other witnesses, was changed for her protection, said that while the deteriorating security situation affected everyone, Syrians and Palestinian refugees from Syria were increasingly regarded with suspicion after the bombings. In the past year, she said, the violence against refugees from Syria worsened and sometimes took place directly in front of security personnel, who did not intervene.

Abdul Rahman, a Syrian refugee who has lived in Burj al-Barajneh since 2013, told Human Rights Watch:

About three months ago a false rumor started to go around Bourj al-Barajneh that I was a member of a terrorist sleeper cell in Lebanon. Of course I am not, but that’s what people were saying. Whenever I would leave the house people would curse me, sometimes throw shoes at me in the street. It wasn’t just me, they did this to other Syrians too.

At the beginning of August, he was standing outside Haifa Hospital on a main road in the camp when one of his neighbors, a Palestinian man living in Lebanon, took out a knife and threatened him, unprovoked:

A crowd gathered around us. He put the knife to my neck and said ‘You are Syrian. You have no voice here.’ Everyone in the street saw it, but did nothing. Even the local security committee operating and patrolling inside the camp watched but didn’t intervene. Several weeks later I was standing in front of the same hospital when I saw three Syrian brothers with stab wounds being rushed into the hospital…. Realizing that my own life was in danger, I decided to flee the neighborhood with my family.

Rahman relocated to South Lebanon with the help of UNHCR, but he told Human Rights Watch he continues to fear for his safety and to restrict his own movements because he does not have a valid residency permit in Lebanon.

Jnah, South Beirut. September 17
In some cases, Syrian refugees in Lebanon have been threatened with guns or shot. Ali, his brother Hussein, and his mother, Zeina, described how he was shot and beaten on September 17 in Jnah, in the Beirut suburbs. Ali showed Human Rights Watch his medical documents and the wounds, which corroborated his statement.

He said he was sleeping when at around 3 a.m. he heard a knock on the door. He opened the door and saw about seven armed men in civilian clothes. “They said “Ya da`eshi” [supporter of ISIS] and then immediately hit me on my head with the butt of a rifle and I fell on the floor,” Ali said. The men then entered his house and beat him with their hands and feet, accusing him of being a member of the extremist Islamist group the Islamic State. They searched his house for weapons, but found none. They fired at him with a pump-action shotgun and hit him along the side of his body:

Then they drove me away to another location. There they accused me of attacking them, selling drugs, and other things. None of it was true. They made me sign a ‘pledge’ saying that I will leave the area by the end of the month and that I am not allowed to re-enter the neighborhood. I didn’t read it because I was in so much pain and bleeding a lot. They just told me to sign and I did because they had guns.

Ali believes his assailants were members of the Amal Movement political party because an Amal party flag and a picture of Amal Movement leader Nabih Berri was hung on the wall of the office in which he was forced to sign the pledge. Human Rights Watch was not able to independently verify this claim. He said the men later dropped him off at his friend’s house. A few hours later he went to the hospital where he was given medical treatment. “The doctor told me that if they had shot me at closer range I would be dead,” he said.

“While I was at the hospital with my brother I got a phone call from a private number,” he said. “They told me that if we file a complaint against them, they will find us and that we know what they will do to us.”

Zeina told Human Rights Watch that when she went to Ali’s house to gather his belongings for him after the attack, that some men came into the house and started harassing her: “One of the guys started cursing me for being Syrian and then pushed my forehead and I fell on the bed. They told me I was Syrian and should never come back. The Lebanese women present intervened on my behalf. I don’t know what would have happened if those women didn’t stop them. My body is weak and I am 56 years old.”

She said that when she went to the hospital to visit her son she spoke to another woman whose son had been attacked in Jnah by people he didn’t know: “I saw his legs, they were covered in bruises. I asked the woman what happened and she said that her son was attacked in the neighborhood, just for being Syrian.”

Mar Mikhael, South Beirut. September 20
Khalid, a Kurdish refugee from Syria, said that Lebanese men attacked him on September 20. He had taken a bus to an area near Mar Mikhael in the Beirut suburbs with his wife and child to visit some people, but when they got off the bus, a Lebanese man asked him where he was going. “The Lebanese men in the neighborhood recognized my Syrian accent and started to beat me,” he said. “They were hitting me, my wife, and child with their hands, feet, and sticks....My eye is still red from the beating,” He said that no passersby intervened and that while he was in Mar Mikhael he saw Lebanese men pull a number of other Syrians out of a bus and beat them. He and his family escaped by running away through the crowds.

Nabaa, Beirut. September 21
Kareem said that four men attacked him in the Nabaa neighborhood in Beirut on September 21 as he walked home from work: “They slapped me on the back on the neck and then kicked me in my back. ‘You are Syrian, you are not allowed here,’ they said. There was police around but they didn’t do anything. I fell down on the street. I can’t complain to the police because I don’t have any papers here. If I do, they will just arrest me.”

Geitwai, Beirut. September 6
Basil said that seven or eight Lebanese men attacked him on September 6 in the Geitawi neighborhood of Beirut. Basil was born in Syria and obtained Lebanese citizenship after moving to Lebanon many years ago. He was leaving a friend’s house when he decided to smoke a cigarette in the park:

Suddenly seven or eight men appeared, identified themselves as General Security, and demanded my papers. I told them to give me their IDs first to prove that they were from General Security. I knew that they weren’t really from General Security and were just guys from the neighborhood. Then they started to beat me. They took out my Lebanese ID and saw that I was born in Damascus and had gained Lebanese citizenship only later in life. ‘Who gave you this nationality?’ They asked me. They continued to beat me and told me that they were searching me for drugs and weapons. Then they threatened me, ‘You need to leave now or else you will not make it home.’

He took a cab home. “The incident left me with bruises all over my body, my eyes were swollen shut and I had to get two stitches in the back of my head,” he said. The next day he went to the police station to file a complaint. “While filling out the paperwork the officer just told me that next time I need to be more careful and that I shouldn’t be so sensitive about things,” Basil said.

Fern al-Shebak, Beirut. September 13
Tariq, a Syrian, said that about five Lebanese men attacked him at around 10:30 p.m. on September 13 in the Fern al-Shebak neighborhood of Beirut as he was going to dinner with a friend. They noticed that a car with five men was slowly following them. The men asked Tariq and his friend where they lived and they responded just down the street: “Then they told us that we had three seconds to run home. Instead, they got out of the car and started to push us. They grabbed my friend and hit him:”

I know the guys who beat us. They are from the neighborhood and we see them a lot. People have been writing things on the wall saying that Syrians need to leave. Apparently a curfew had been imposed by residents in the neighborhood and no Syrians are allowed to go out after 8 p.m. Guys in the neighborhood are organizing themselves as part of vigilante groups to police the presence of Syrians in the neighborhood and sometimes to attack them.

Barbir, Beirut. September 14
Bashar, a Syrian refugee, said that five men attacked him at around 8 or 9 p.m. on September 14 in the Barbir neighborhood of Beirut when he went out to buy food at a local shop. A group of about five men approached him, he said, one of whom had a knife, and asked him if he was Syrian. Bashar said yes and then the men pushed and cursed at him. “They started to yell at me saying ‘get out of our country you dog’ and ‘you are all Daesh[ISIS],’” Bashar said. A neighborhood resident intervened, and Bashar ran home. “I am not able to handle any more insults,” he said. “I can’t file any complaints about this to the police. If I go, they will just say, ‘Why are you complaining against my Lebanese brother?’ I feel like there are no laws here.”

Bourj Hammoud, Beirut. September 9
On September 9, neighborhood youth circulated a flyer in the Bourj Hammoud area in Beirut ordering Syrians to leave, local media reported, after ISIS executed two captured Lebanese soldiers in Syria. “We ask Syrian citizens living in Burj Hammoud to evacuate the area starting Tuesday, Sept. 9, at 6 p.m. and [the decision is] in solidarity with the martyrs of the Lebanese Army,” the flyer said.

Nadia said that the army entered Bourj Hammoud on the same day and people started telling Syrians to leave. Syrians started to close their shops and flyers were passed around telling Syrians to leave, she said. “They [the army] closed off the neighborhood for a while and were not letting anyone enter. They said that Syrians needed to leave by 6 p.m.” “One Lebanese wearing civilian clothes walked down our street with a gun yelling, ‘Where are the Syrians?” she said. “The Lebanese security forces were present but didn’t do anything to stop it. I hid in the house with my child in fear.”

Mustafa said that he was attacked in the municipality square in Bourj Hammoud at around 8 p.m. that day while walking with his family:

Suddenly seven or eight Lebanese guys approached me and started hitting me with their hands and feet. The police saw it but weren’t doing anything. If my wife and small child hadn’t been with me, I would have been beaten more severely. I saw lots of other Syrians being beaten in the street that day. They want us to go back to Syria. But where would I go? My house was destroyed by barrel bombs and I am wanted by the [Syrian] regime.

Rawda, Baabda. Mount Lebanon. September 23
Human Rights Watch spoke to Salim, whose friend Bassam told him he was attacked on September 23 by two assailants in Rawda, in the Baabda district in Lebanon at about 10 p.m. Salim was not with Bassam when he was attacked but accompanied him to the hospital that night for treatment for his wounds. With Bassam’s consent, Salim sent Human Rights Watch copies of Bassam’s medical documents and a picture of him visiting Bassam in the hospital.

He said Bassam was targeted by several Lebanese men who were enforcing a curfew in the area. “Lebanese guys stopped him and said you are not allowed to go out at night,” Salim said. When Bassam told them he was just going to the store, they stabbed him three times, including in his chest. “He sustained severe wounds, one of which has perforated his lung,” Salim said. “He is in urgent need of surgery but we don’t have enough money…. He has no family in Lebanon and is all alone here.” Human Rights Watch could not speak with Bassam directly because of the extent of his injuries. Salim said that the two men who allegedly stabbed Bassam had been arrested but that Bassam did not file a police report.

LOL @ "post hidden due to negative ratings".
Truth hurts doesn't it?
Apparently you guys live by this motto: "If you can't refute one's argument, mass-dislike it so that it doesn't up in the thread and skew your point of view."

They said that Syrians needed to leave by 6 p.m.” “One Lebanese wearing civilian clothes walked down our street with a gun yelling, ‘Where are the Syrians?” she said. “The Lebanese security forces were present but didn’t do anything to stop it. I hid in the house with my child in fear.”

Mustafa said that he was attacked in the municipality square in Bourj Hammoud at around 8 p.m. that day while walking with his family:

Suddenly seven or eight Lebanese guys approached me and started hitting me with their hands and feet. The police saw it but weren’t doing anything. If my wife and small child hadn’t been with me, I would have been beaten more severely. I saw lots of other Syrians being beaten in the street that day. They want us to go back to Syria. But where would I go? My house was destroyed by barrel bombs and I am wanted by the [Syrian] regime.

Rawda, Baabda. Mount Lebanon. September 23
Human Rights Watch spoke to Salim, whose friend Bassam told him he was attacked on September 23 by two assailants in Rawda, in the Baabda district in Lebanon at about 10 p.m. Salim was not with Bassam when he was attacked but accompanied him to the hospital that night for treatment for his wounds. With Bassam’s consent, Salim sent Human Rights Watch copies of Bassam’s medical documents and a picture of him visiting Bassam in the hospital.

He said Bassam was targeted by several Lebanese men who were enforcing a curfew in the area. “Lebanese guys stopped him and said you are not allowed to go out at night,” Salim said. When Bassam told them he was just going to the store, they stabbed him three times, including in his chest. “He sustained severe wounds, one of which has perforated his lung,” Salim said. “He is in urgent need of surgery but we don’t have enough money…. He has no family in Lebanon and is all alone here.” Human Rights Watch could not speak with Bassam directly because of the extent of his injuries. Salim said that the two men who allegedly stabbed Bassam had been arrested but that Bassam did not file a police report.

LOL @ "post hidden due to negative ratings".
Truth hurts doesn't it?
Apparently you guys live by this motto: "If you can't refute one's argument, mass-dislike it so that it doesn't up in the thread and skew your point of view."

They are guest here; they supposed to honor and respect those who welcomed them... and be grateful to the hand that feeds them. Is that too much to ask?

you did not even make an argument to be refuted. yours is simply an non-acceptable attempt to validate the violence of refugees against the people who help and receive them. these people are refugees, it is about time they act as such.

if they want to fight, kill and be killed, they can go kill and die in syria, they have no need for refuge.

this is how the Lebanese civil war began, instead of condemning the PLO rapes and pillaging to put an end to it, leftists stood by them and supported them. the rest is history.

But you can't start a thread by portraying all Syrian refugees as killers and "non-humans", and not expect some backlash.

Syrian refugees have been as much a victim to violence, as have their Lebanese hosts, as my hidden post above shows.

Stop with the nonsense. I didn't say this crime is acceptable.
I was only refuting your initial claim that all Syrian refugees are Isis members and violent.
The number of hate crimes committed against refugees far outnumbers the number of crimes committed by them.

خاص بالصور: عمال سوريون يعتدون على نصار وكيروز “بالسكاكين” في جل الديب!





لا يمر يوم حتى نسمع فيه عن إشكال من هنا وتعدِ من هناك على المواطنين، حتى أصبحت التجاوزات المتنقلة في جميع المناطق اللبنانية من صلب حياتنا اليومية، غاب الأمن وأصبح كل من تسول له نفسه قادراً على أن يتصرف على ليلاه، يجمع رفاقه ويقرر أخذ حقه بيده بالقوة وبالسلاح والسكاكين.

وكان ينقص اللبنانيين أزمة اللاجئين السوريين التي أصبحت في صلب حياتهم اليومية، هؤلاء المنتشرون بكثافة في مناطقنا يعملون بدلاً عنا، يأخذون وظائفنا بل وأكثر أصبح كثيرون منهم يهددون حياتنا وأرواحنا ويتصرفون كانهم أصحاب الأرض.

وجديد هذا المسلسل المتنقل في مختلف مناطقنا، الإشكال الذي وقع اليوم الخميس، مع المجموعة التي تعمل في مطعم “دجاج وتوم” والتي إعتدى افراد منها بالسكاكين على أصحاب المحال المجاورة ومنها فرن “داني نصار” ومطعم “صاحبنا” لصاحبه نجيب كيروز.

وفي تفاصيل الإشكال، علم موقع “القوات اللبنانية” الإلكتروني، إن أحد العاملين السوريين، وهو يعمل كـ”valet” لدى مطعم “دجاج وتوم” عمد على ركن احدى السيارات أمام فرن “نصار” صباحاً، علماً أن ظاهرة ركن سيارات زبائن “دجاج وتوم” أمام المحلات التجارية تتكرر بشكل يومي، ما أدى إلى إستياء صاحب الفرن الذي طلب من العامل عدم ركن السيارة، فتلاسنا وتدخل أصحاب المحال المجاورة لفض الإشكال إلى أن الامر لم ينته عند هذا الحد.

وعند الساعة الثالثة من بعض الظهر، أتى العامل السوري مجدداً برفقة 30 شخصاً سورياً ودخلوا إلى الفرن وبدأوا بتكسير محتوياته إضافة إلى تكسير مطعم “صاحبنا” لصاحبه نجيب كيروز، وشهروا السكاكين وعمدوا الى طعن كل من تواجد داخل المحلّين، فأصيب داني نصار وكذلك نجيب كيروز إضافة إلى عامل يعمل لدى “نصار” الذي تعرض ايضاً لكسور في يده.

وفي إتصال مع “موقعنا” أكد كيروز إن الحادثة لن تمر مرور الكرام مشدداً على أن الإتكال هو على القوى الأمنية التي باشرت التحقيقات.

وأشار إلى ان هناك موقوفاً لدى الأجهزة الأمنية لكن إذا لم تتمكن القوى الامنية من معالجة الامر، حينها سنتدخل لأخذ حقنا ولن نسكت بعد الآن، كما اننا لسنا مكسر عصا لأحد ونعلم جيداً كيف نرد الصاع صاعين خصوصاً ان مطعم “دجاج وتوم”، معروف الهوية، ولن نقبل بأن تتعرض مصالحنا وامننا للخطر من قبل العمال السوريين الذين إستقبلناهم وأويناهم.

الوضع لم يعد يحتمل، والأجواء في المنطقة الذي حصل فيها الإشكال تنذر بالأسوأ وعلى الأجهزة الامنية عدم الإكتفاء بسياسة الامن بالتراضي، بل معالجة الوضع جدياً ووضع حد للتمادي الحاصل من قبل العمال السوريين الذين لا يأبهون لا للأمن ولا لأجهزته، ومعاقبة كل من يغطي هذه الأفعال، حتى ولو كانوا مدعومين من صاحب المطعم الذي ضرب بعرض الحائط كل الأصول وقوانين العمل اللبنانية.

1-A Lebanese teenager rapes a 5-year-old Syrian child

2-A Syrian man was shot with a pump-action shotgun on September 19 by men he believed belonged to a Lebanese political party

3-In a September 23 case, a group of Lebanese men in Rawda brutally stabbed a Syrian man, saying it was because he was out after a curfew.

For details of the attacks Human Rights Watch documented, please see below.

Cases of Violence Documented by Human Rights Watch
Human Rights Watch documented 11 cases in August and September in which Syrians in Lebanon, or people perceived to be Syrians, were violently attacked in their homes or on the street by Lebanese private citizens. Humanitarian workers informed Human Rights Watch of an additional 21 cases. Human Rights Watch was not able to investigate those cases independently.

Bourj al-Barajneh, South Beirut. Early August
While attacks against Syrians in Lebanon spiked in August and September, in some areas, like in Bourj al-Barajneh, in the Beirut suburbs, Syrians reported violent attacks and harassment by local residents as early as 2013. The attacks have since intensified. Bourj al-Barajneh, which before the conflict in Syria was the site of a Palestinian refugee camp, is home to at least 31,000 refugees including Palestinian refugees from Syria and Lebanon, and other Syrian refugees, reported a local newspaper quoting United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA).

A series of bombings in the Beirut suburbs in 2013 and 2014 were claimed by several Syrian extremist groups, including Jabhat al Nusra. One Syrian resident of the Bourj al-Barajneh camp, Yusra, whose name, as with other witnesses, was changed for her protection, said that while the deteriorating security situation affected everyone, Syrians and Palestinian refugees from Syria were increasingly regarded with suspicion after the bombings. In the past year, she said, the violence against refugees from Syria worsened and sometimes took place directly in front of security personnel, who did not intervene.

Abdul Rahman, a Syrian refugee who has lived in Burj al-Barajneh since 2013, told Human Rights Watch:

About three months ago a false rumor started to go around Bourj al-Barajneh that I was a member of a terrorist sleeper cell in Lebanon. Of course I am not, but that’s what people were saying. Whenever I would leave the house people would curse me, sometimes throw shoes at me in the street. It wasn’t just me, they did this to other Syrians too.

At the beginning of August, he was standing outside Haifa Hospital on a main road in the camp when one of his neighbors, a Palestinian man living in Lebanon, took out a knife and threatened him, unprovoked:

A crowd gathered around us. He put the knife to my neck and said ‘You are Syrian. You have no voice here.’ Everyone in the street saw it, but did nothing. Even the local security committee operating and patrolling inside the camp watched but didn’t intervene. Several weeks later I was standing in front of the same hospital when I saw three Syrian brothers with stab wounds being rushed into the hospital…. Realizing that my own life was in danger, I decided to flee the neighborhood with my family.

Rahman relocated to South Lebanon with the help of UNHCR, but he told Human Rights Watch he continues to fear for his safety and to restrict his own movements because he does not have a valid residency permit in Lebanon.

Jnah, South Beirut. September 17
In some cases, Syrian refugees in Lebanon have been threatened with guns or shot. Ali, his brother Hussein, and his mother, Zeina, described how he was shot and beaten on September 17 in Jnah, in the Beirut suburbs. Ali showed Human Rights Watch his medical documents and the wounds, which corroborated his statement.

He said he was sleeping when at around 3 a.m. he heard a knock on the door. He opened the door and saw about seven armed men in civilian clothes. “They said “Ya da`eshi” [supporter of ISIS] and then immediately hit me on my head with the butt of a rifle and I fell on the floor,” Ali said. The men then entered his house and beat him with their hands and feet, accusing him of being a member of the extremist Islamist group the Islamic State. They searched his house for weapons, but found none. They fired at him with a pump-action shotgun and hit him along the side of his body:

Then they drove me away to another location. There they accused me of attacking them, selling drugs, and other things. None of it was true. They made me sign a ‘pledge’ saying that I will leave the area by the end of the month and that I am not allowed to re-enter the neighborhood. I didn’t read it because I was in so much pain and bleeding a lot. They just told me to sign and I did because they had guns.

Ali believes his assailants were members of the Amal Movement political party because an Amal party flag and a picture of Amal Movement leader Nabih Berri was hung on the wall of the office in which he was forced to sign the pledge. Human Rights Watch was not able to independently verify this claim. He said the men later dropped him off at his friend’s house. A few hours later he went to the hospital where he was given medical treatment. “The doctor told me that if they had shot me at closer range I would be dead,” he said.

“While I was at the hospital with my brother I got a phone call from a private number,” he said. “They told me that if we file a complaint against them, they will find us and that we know what they will do to us.”

Zeina told Human Rights Watch that when she went to Ali’s house to gather his belongings for him after the attack, that some men came into the house and started harassing her: “One of the guys started cursing me for being Syrian and then pushed my forehead and I fell on the bed. They told me I was Syrian and should never come back. The Lebanese women present intervened on my behalf. I don’t know what would have happened if those women didn’t stop them. My body is weak and I am 56 years old.”

She said that when she went to the hospital to visit her son she spoke to another woman whose son had been attacked in Jnah by people he didn’t know: “I saw his legs, they were covered in bruises. I asked the woman what happened and she said that her son was attacked in the neighborhood, just for being Syrian.”

Mar Mikhael, South Beirut. September 20
Khalid, a Kurdish refugee from Syria, said that Lebanese men attacked him on September 20. He had taken a bus to an area near Mar Mikhael in the Beirut suburbs with his wife and child to visit some people, but when they got off the bus, a Lebanese man asked him where he was going. “The Lebanese men in the neighborhood recognized my Syrian accent and started to beat me,” he said. “They were hitting me, my wife, and child with their hands, feet, and sticks....My eye is still red from the beating,” He said that no passersby intervened and that while he was in Mar Mikhael he saw Lebanese men pull a number of other Syrians out of a bus and beat them. He and his family escaped by running away through the crowds.

Nabaa, Beirut. September 21
Kareem said that four men attacked him in the Nabaa neighborhood in Beirut on September 21 as he walked home from work: “They slapped me on the back on the neck and then kicked me in my back. ‘You are Syrian, you are not allowed here,’ they said. There was police around but they didn’t do anything. I fell down on the street. I can’t complain to the police because I don’t have any papers here. If I do, they will just arrest me.”

Geitwai, Beirut. September 6
Basil said that seven or eight Lebanese men attacked him on September 6 in the Geitawi neighborhood of Beirut. Basil was born in Syria and obtained Lebanese citizenship after moving to Lebanon many years ago. He was leaving a friend’s house when he decided to smoke a cigarette in the park:

Suddenly seven or eight men appeared, identified themselves as General Security, and demanded my papers. I told them to give me their IDs first to prove that they were from General Security. I knew that they weren’t really from General Security and were just guys from the neighborhood. Then they started to beat me. They took out my Lebanese ID and saw that I was born in Damascus and had gained Lebanese citizenship only later in life. ‘Who gave you this nationality?’ They asked me. They continued to beat me and told me that they were searching me for drugs and weapons. Then they threatened me, ‘You need to leave now or else you will not make it home.’

He took a cab home. “The incident left me with bruises all over my body, my eyes were swollen shut and I had to get two stitches in the back of my head,” he said. The next day he went to the police station to file a complaint. “While filling out the paperwork the officer just told me that next time I need to be more careful and that I shouldn’t be so sensitive about things,” Basil said.

Fern al-Shebak, Beirut. September 13
Tariq, a Syrian, said that about five Lebanese men attacked him at around 10:30 p.m. on September 13 in the Fern al-Shebak neighborhood of Beirut as he was going to dinner with a friend. They noticed that a car with five men was slowly following them. The men asked Tariq and his friend where they lived and they responded just down the street: “Then they told us that we had three seconds to run home. Instead, they got out of the car and started to push us. They grabbed my friend and hit him:”

I know the guys who beat us. They are from the neighborhood and we see them a lot. People have been writing things on the wall saying that Syrians need to leave. Apparently a curfew had been imposed by residents in the neighborhood and no Syrians are allowed to go out after 8 p.m. Guys in the neighborhood are organizing themselves as part of vigilante groups to police the presence of Syrians in the neighborhood and sometimes to attack them.

Barbir, Beirut. September 14
Bashar, a Syrian refugee, said that five men attacked him at around 8 or 9 p.m. on September 14 in the Barbir neighborhood of Beirut when he went out to buy food at a local shop. A group of about five men approached him, he said, one of whom had a knife, and asked him if he was Syrian. Bashar said yes and then the men pushed and cursed at him. “They started to yell at me saying ‘get out of our country you dog’ and ‘you are all Daesh[ISIS],’” Bashar said. A neighborhood resident intervened, and Bashar ran home. “I am not able to handle any more insults,” he said. “I can’t file any complaints about this to the police. If I go, they will just say, ‘Why are you complaining against my Lebanese brother?’ I feel like there are no laws here.”

Bourj Hammoud, Beirut. September 9
On September 9, neighborhood youth circulated a flyer in the Bourj Hammoud area in Beirut ordering Syrians to leave, local media reported, after ISIS executed two captured Lebanese soldiers in Syria. “We ask Syrian citizens living in Burj Hammoud to evacuate the area starting Tuesday, Sept. 9, at 6 p.m. and [the decision is] in solidarity with the martyrs of the Lebanese Army,” the flyer said.

Nadia said that the army entered Bourj Hammoud on the same day and people started telling Syrians to leave. Syrians started to close their shops and flyers were passed around telling Syrians to leave, she said. “They [the army] closed off the neighborhood for a while and were not letting anyone enter. They said that Syrians needed to leave by 6 p.m.” “One Lebanese wearing civilian clothes walked down our street with a gun yelling, ‘Where are the Syrians?” she said. “The Lebanese security forces were present but didn’t do anything to stop it. I hid in the house with my child in fear.”

Mustafa said that he was attacked in the municipality square in Bourj Hammoud at around 8 p.m. that day while walking with his family:

Suddenly seven or eight Lebanese guys approached me and started hitting me with their hands and feet. The police saw it but weren’t doing anything. If my wife and small child hadn’t been with me, I would have been beaten more severely. I saw lots of other Syrians being beaten in the street that day. They want us to go back to Syria. But where would I go? My house was destroyed by barrel bombs and I am wanted by the [Syrian] regime.

Rawda, Baabda. Mount Lebanon. September 23
Human Rights Watch spoke to Salim, whose friend Bassam told him he was attacked on September 23 by two assailants in Rawda, in the Baabda district in Lebanon at about 10 p.m. Salim was not with Bassam when he was attacked but accompanied him to the hospital that night for treatment for his wounds. With Bassam’s consent, Salim sent Human Rights Watch copies of Bassam’s medical documents and a picture of him visiting Bassam in the hospital.

He said Bassam was targeted by several Lebanese men who were enforcing a curfew in the area. “Lebanese guys stopped him and said you are not allowed to go out at night,” Salim said.

misunderstandings happen all the time. they are usually not solved by bringing in 30 syrians yielding their knives to destroy the bakery, the restaurant and stab their owners.

it is about time you begin exercising your keen sense of judgment, the one you claim to resort to when it is religion at the receiving end :p

While the crime is horrible the premise of this thread is wrong! Crimes are being committed on both sides of the aisle, to describe one side as inherently evil because you wish to prove a point (i guess that point is: being racist isn't bad and we should hate all Syrian refugees because 30 of them attacked a guy in jall el dib ?) is wrong... I do agree though that this is how the civil war started! Not because people made apologies for one side over the other but because both sides were equally f*cked up! Or was it right for the lf to rape Palestinians ?

Now I'm sure no one will see it this way, and since I'm not really interested in a debate that will suck the humanity out of me, you all can go back to swearing and hating on Syrians i guess ^_^ and whoever tries to argue with you!
