An Army that does not defend Lebanon but bullies the refugees

"Access to Nahr al-Bared's outskirts as well as to the construction site is still controlled by the Lebanese army. Amr Saededine, a journalist closely following developments in Nahr al-Bared points to the army as a big obstacle to the reconstruction process. "The army interferes in anything. Nahr al-Bared was declared a military zone. But this here is a civilian area, not an army base!""
