Lebanese Army moves to crush Sheikh Assir in Saida.
Deadly clashes that have cost the lives of more than 17 soldiers and 25 gunmen have been going on in Saida the last few days. And it seems like the fighting is still going on right now.
Our friend Gihda from Saida tweeted and posted facebook updates during the clashes.
Facebook Update: Clashes have been going on for 19 hours straight NONSTOP.. We have to electricity. No Tv. No phone lines. Snipers are everywhere on top of buildings shooting whoever moves on the streets.. People are stuck in their buildings crying for help or a way to get out.
