This week I learned that the son of Rif`at Al-Asad (read what I have written about him in the archives including about his gift to my father (of an AK 47), and the thuggery and brutality of his forces in Lebanon during the civil war years), Ribal, has set up shop in Tripoli, ostensibly with the support of the Hariri family. He named his organization Al-Fursan (the name of the notorious forces of his father), but today denied to As-Safir that it is a militia.
