Azzam Brigades to Hizbullah: You Won't Enjoy Safety until Security Returns to Syria, Lebanon People

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The Qaida-linked Abdullah Azzam Brigades on Tuesday warned Hizbullah that its strongholds in Lebanon will not know safety if the party does not end its military intervention in neighboring Syria.

“The targeting of your agent (General Security chief Abbas) Ibrahim and the (attacks) you witnessed in your Dahieh (region) only confirm that you will not enjoy safety until security returns to the people of Syria and Lebanon,” Sirajeddine Zureiqat, a fugitive Lebanese cleric who has been described as AAB's spokesman, said on his Twitter account.

Zureiqat described his tweets as “comments on the latest incidents in Lebanon.”

His remarks come one day after a suicide car bombing occurred near an army checkpoint and a packed cafe in the Tayyouneh area on the peripheries of Dahieh, a Hizbullah bastion, killing one person and wounding 20 others.

Monday's attack was the second in four days. On Friday, a suicide bomber detonated an explosives-rigged car at a security checkpoint in the Bekaa area of Dahr al-Baydar, killing one person and wounding several others.

Maj. Gen. Ibrahim's convoy was only 200 meters away from the blast, but it is still not clear if he was the target of the attack.

“The Iranian party (Hizbullah) ignores the fact that its aggression against the Sunni community in Syria and Lebanon has antagonized the Sunni community,” Zureiqat said.

“But we tell the Iranian party: Your battle is not only with us anymore but rather with the Sunni community in Syria and Lebanon,” he added.

Referring to the latest attacks, Zureiqat noted that Sunnis in Syria and Lebanon are seeking to “strike” Hizbullah, which “has brought this upon itself through its adventures in Syria.”

“The latest bombings are clear evidence that your war is not against takfiri organizations as you claim, as the majority of Sunnis have started defending themselves with their own means,” the fugitive cleric added.

Zureiqat had announced Abdullah Azzam Brigades' responsibility for the twin bombing that rocked the Iranian embassy in Beirut on November 19, 2013.

Hizbullah's strongholds in Beirut's southern suburbs and the Bekaa have been recently targeted by around 10 deadly bombings, which were claimed by Sunni extremist groups who blamed the party for sending thousands of fighters into Syria to support President Bashar Assad's regime against rebels seeking to oust him.

No, dude! Just no! I hate Hizb as much as the next guy, but to wish wholesale death and destruction in this manner is just going too far. This sort of extremism is precisely what both sides here are trying to sow, and your words could have just as well come from the mouth of the poster-child for one of their recruitment campaigns. Tayyouneh comprises of both Sunnis and Shia, and both were down on the ground immediately after the explosion to help out the wounded, since a car-bomb doesn't differentiate.

Well said Maxx! We can disagree politically but murder is murder and anyone who supports a terrorist bombing in Lebanon committed by any side is the real traitor!

@ResistanceFailed4x : Murder is murder you say ? Hmmm ... not only is your party made up of known murderers, plotters, assassins, bomb riggers and such. You support the murderer and butcher Bashar ! There is no difference between you and the rat in the article above ! Both terrorists. You should both be eradicated ! And you are as much a traitor as anyone you accuse !

Another. bearded turbaned guy pointing his finger, mouthing some religious reason to engage in mass killing of people who do not recite prayers of worship like he does. If it were not true it would be funny. The arms dealers dream, anther religious fanatic, fanning the flames of war with a sure fired way to incite people to kill, religion! Sex sells and so does religion, move that product boys, stack those bodies, and keep those orders for weapons and ammo coming in

What a waste to have a fine religious based militia, without a second one, equal in fervor and money for it to fight? Hezbollah v. ISIS, the match of the ages. Shia v. Sunni! Perfect, the conflict that has no end or resolution, since the initial grievance is 1400 years old. arms merchants must be licking their chops, think of the bottom line, the sales, the soaking of KSA and Iran as they duke it out over the Middle East. The Military Industrial Complex has really outdone itself this time!! Everybody get a good seat, CNN, Fox, BBC, too, big revenues from this one, the shocks thrills and chills. Better than Christians in the Colosseum. Feed the beast, and become one.

extremists like this guy or nasrallah don't care about God's message if it goes against their interests... they twist the message to fit their propaganda! the Church has been doing this for hundreds of years too!

'Azzam Brigades to Hizbullah: You Won't Enjoy Safety until Security Returns to Syria, Lebanon People"......yes, and you are going to bring peace and security to the Lebanese and Syrian people? Are you bringing peace and security to the Sunnis in Syria and Iraq?

Missing bigjohn 25 June 2014, 03:49 are making HA look like the USA. The next thing you are going to tell me is that HA have more than 150 bases around the world.

Missing bigjohn 25 June 2014, 13:08

"US 150 worldwide basis are executing charitative work 90% of their time." Yes, 90% of the time invading countries and killing people. Their war budget is $700 billion dollars a year and the charitable work is $20 billions a year. Also, they are by far the biggest merchant of (death) arms in the world.

"Hizbullah's strongholds in Beirut's southern suburbs and the Bekaa have been recently targeted by around 10 deadly bombings" ...What the hell does that mean??????????? NAHARNET is sounding like the stupid racist terrorist Zionists. Are the bombings targeting HA military bases? Why don't you say they are targeting Shiite civilians who may be HA supporters, Amal members, Atheist Communists, and even M14 Shiites supporters like you! HA are not using phosphorus bombs or one thousand pound bombs like Israel or are in cold blood executing civilians for sectarian reasons like the "revolutionaries" in Syria ans Iraq!

Missing bigjohn 25 June 2014, 13:21

Well, they were not targeting the HA stronghold. Also, any Shiite neighborhood that gets bombed, these idiots call it HA neighborhood.

Missing bigjohn 25 June 2014, 03:42

ashrafieh...First of all do not confuse Sunnis with the Armed "opposition". Most Sunnis do not support them. Also, in the 60's and 70's the majority of Lebanese Sunnis supported secular politics, unlike the majority of Maronites who supported sectarian bigots including the LF (Lebanese Fascists).

Simple equation. It all started with Hizballah. The more they abuse their presence and existence, and inflict and force themselves in every aspect of Lebanese politics and daily life, the more people are going to get bothered and want them out. They started because they want to liberate Palestine, now they are liberating Syria. The party should be called The Liberators. End Hizbullah, Lebanon will be a real country. Period.
