  • Description

    Naim Mogabgab is a deputy of the Chouf District and also leader of the popular defence in the Chouf.

    He recently gave a press conference to explain the intentions and the dispositions of the rebel forces in the area.

    The latest news from the Lebanon is that in the face of fighter aircraft, tanks and artillery the insurgents losses have been severe. The situation has not been made any easier by the seizing by warring villages of the general situation as an excuse to settle old feuds and scores.

    So far confined to a comparatively minor, role in the big towns, the Lebanese Army, commanded by General Chehab, may have to take control by the declaration of a state of emergency. If such a state of emergency is declared it is certain he will be asked to be Military Governor-General.

    Meanwhile in the Chouf District, the rebels are on the alert and actively patrolling the area. Some are armed with Egyptian weapons.
