Sheikh Bilal Damqaq posted a video on Facebook apologizing to the fight that happened on national television. He denies disrespecting Syrians and he hopes they get home safely. Also, he said that he hopes the people of Syria will “clean” their country “from garbage like Ahmad Chlech, Bashar and people like them.” https://www.facebook.com/bilalddd/videos/860671394086888/ However, the interview continued with Ahmad Chlech only. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YrJTRXHTuoU This is not the first time a fight breaks on a Lebanese channel.
