Fatah Vows to Investigate Attack on Sputnik Correspondent at Palestinian Embassy in Lebanon

Sputnik correspondent Abed Albay was assaulted on Monday, while he was filming a rally involving both supporters and opponents of the Palestinian movement.

Fatah has dubbed the attack on the Sputnik journalist "unacceptable" and promised to carry out a probe in order to find those responsible for his beating.

"At the moment, I do not have information on this issue. I need just 30 minutes to get an update. But initially, we support freedom of the media and speak against any harassment of journalists. What happened is absolutely unacceptable. It is necessary to understand what happened, and find out whether these were our people or not", spokesman Mahmoud Said stated.
