Lebanese opposition politician killed

A main figure in Lebanon's opposition has been killed.

Druze politician Saleh Aridi has died in a bomb blast in Aley. He was an ally of Hezbollah - and his party (led by Talal Arslan) humiliated Junblatt in the fighting in May.

Aley is just outside Beirut, and is considered a stronghold of Walid Junblatt.

The two sides were due to come together on Monday to discuss their differences.

Saroujah habibi ,more than 15 hezbollah fighters and hundreds of wounded do u call this humiliation of jumblatt?
if only the other parties of lebanon have only 20% of what has hezbollah has ,the last ones will be annihilated in few months.
never underestimate the bravery of a psp fighter.dont forget that nasrallah is hidden like a rat,not jumblatt.
