25 April, 18:34

(ANSAmed) - BEIRUT, APRIL 25 - Two members of a terrorist group inspired by Al Qaeda have been killed in Syria, according to Lebanese press sources, who quote security reports in Beirut.

The local television station New TV says that Abdel Ghani Jawhar and Walid Bustani, who were killed in separate incidents, were members of Fatah al-Islam, a group accused in Lebanon of carrying out attacks against the Lebanese army, and which clashed with Beirut government forces in the summer of 2007 at the Palestinian refugee camp of Nahr al-Bared, close to Tripoli, in the north of the country.

Local security sources quoted by New TV say that Jawhar, who was from a town in the north-east of Lebanon, died recently in Syria during clashes with the national army. He is said to have fought alongside anti-regime rebels.

Bustani, who was jailed in 2007 but escaped three years later, is said to have been killed by rebels from the Free Syrian Army after he was found stealing money from them. (ANSAmed).
