Germany Syrians Lebanese street battles. Is the news true?

 No, this news is not true. There is no evidence of such an incident happening in Germany recently. The only source that mentions this news is a website called "France Soir", which is known for spreading misinformation and conspiracy theories¹. The website claims that the attack happened on October 31, 2021, but does not provide any details or sources to back up its claim.

The news may be a distorted version of another incident that happened in Essen, Germany, on June 18, 2021, when violent clashes broke out between groups affiliated with large clans in Syria and Lebanon, fighting with knives, leaving a 23-year-old Syrian dead². The clashes were reportedly triggered by a personal dispute between two individuals and escalated into a large-scale confrontation involving dozens of people². The police intervened and arrested several suspects².

Therefore, the news of Syrians and Lebanese fighting against each other in running street battles in Germany is false and should not be trusted.
