The Aishiyeh massacre occurred in October, 1976[1][2] in the small Christian village[3] Aishiya, [4] Lebanon, of more than 70 and injuring over 100[5] Lebanese Christian civilians, including at least 7 under the age of 16, by the Syrian / "Palestinian"-Muslim factions, Fatah and As-Sa’iqa.

Most of the victims were women, children and the elderly. Women and girls were raped, then slaughtered inside the church. Newborns were ripped apart. Children were decapitated with hatchets. And one was burned alive in front of his father.[5]

John Nasser, the priest of Aishiye, trembled when describing the horrible massacre.[3]
