The Tanielian brothers: Correction


Following the post I made earlier today about the serial killers that were finally caught by the Lebanese intelligence yesterday night, it turns out that the Tanielian family is an Assyrian family who come from al-Qamishli region in Syria (a region known for its Assyrian population).  The family also goes by the name Bou Hanna.  Only 3 brothers have the Lebanese nationality while the other 2 don’t.  They’ve been living there for more than 25 years.  Some of the brothers have fought in the civil war and were incarcerated, but later pardoned and eventually got out of jail.  The neighbors were surprised, and didn’t expect the brothers to be killers.  They were actually caught after making a call from the cell phone of a soldier that they previously killed, which lead the police to identify them as the killers.
