Report: ISIL Names 'Emir' for Lebanon, Sets Up 'Suicide Bombers Training Camp'


The extremist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant has appointed an “emir”, or leader, over Lebanon and has set up a camp to train would-be suicide bombers and send them to Lebanon, a media report said on Sunday.

According to information obtained by LBCI television, security agencies' investigations have revealed that “the ISIL has appointed Abdul Salam al-Ordoni as an emir over Lebanon.”

Ordoni has been giving instructions to Al-Monzer al-Hasan, the Lebanese intermediary between the ISIL and the two suicide bombers who were busted at the Duroy Hotel in Raouche, LBCI said.

The interrogation of detained Saudi would-be suicide bomber Abdul Rahman al-Shenifi, who survived the Duroy blast, confirmed that the duo were sent to Lebanon by the ISIL, the TV network added.

“According to the plan devised for them by Al-Monzer al-Hasan, the attack on al-Saha Restaurant (in Hizbullah's stronghold Dahieh) required one of them to enter the restaurant and open fire from a machinegun at the biggest number of customers before blowing up his suicide vest,” LBCI's report said.

“The second suicide bomber would blow himself up when medics and citizens gather for rescue operations,” it added.

Investigations also revealed that the Saudi operatives had three suicide vests in their possession, one weighing three kilograms and the other two weighing 10 kilos each.

"Shenifi was the one who noticed the arrival of General Security forces to the hotel. When General Security members arrived at their room's door, (Ahmed Abdul Rahman) al-Thuwani armed the suicide vest and hurled it at the door where it exploded, which resulted in his death and the wounding of Shenifi and the General Security members,” LBCI said.

On Saturday, the TV network said Shenifi told his interrogators that a Syrian man informed him and his partners in the Turkish city of Istanbul that their mission was to attack security forces and army troops in Lebanon.

But later, al-Monzer al-Hasan, the man who provided the Duroy bombers with explosives, asked the two Saudi militants to change their target and instead attack al-Saha Restaurant in the southern suburbs of Beirut.

On Wednesday, al-Thuwani detonated a suicide vest at the Duroy Hotel room during a raid by General Security officers.

LBCI reported on Friday that the suicide bomber and his accomplice had arrived in Lebanon from Istanbul where they had spent five days.

The TV network said investigations have highlighted a “key role” for al-Hasan in several suicide bombings.

It said al-Hasan receives $50,000 for facilitating the mission of every suicide bomber.

Al-Hasan's picture was circulated by the General Security agency on Thursday.

Wednesday's suicide attack was the third in Lebanon in less than a week and sparked fears of renewed violence in a country that has been deeply affected by the civil war in neighboring Syria.

The Emir can take March 14 and rule with Hariri and Geagea in Saudi Arabia. Leave Lebanon to real Lebanese that descended from Phoenicians.

Thumb Maxx 29 June 2014, 22:42

And the Sayyed can take March 8 and rule with Khomeini and Mughniyeh in hell. Leave Lebanon, indeed, to real Lebanese who put Lebanon first and get down on their knees neither before the Saudis or the Iranians.

The extremist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant has appointed an “emir”, or leader, over Lebanon and has set up a camp to train would-be suicide bombers and send them to Lebanon, a media report said on Sunday.....AND we have Hezbollah, who are members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard who basically also act as if they own the country...this is a sad sad time as HA are responsible for bringing these "wonderful" sick individuals to our beloved country. Thanks so much religious extremism! You've proven time and time again how productive for civilized society you are.

This is what Islamic sectarian hate brought on to us.
Radical militarized shiaas demanded radical militarized sunnis.
Both should get a life (literary) and get over who should have governed 1500 years ago. live and let us live. or go die elsewhere far from us.
on one hand HA wants to hijack Lebanon and make it an extension of the Islamic republic of Iran, and on the other some radical lunatics want to make it part of the khalifet.
Da3esh = HA

Al-Monzer al-Hasan, hmm he didnt stop to think that one of them will get caught , or captured. All involved should be so ashamed of themselves. How could you consider taking innocent lives for Money, and political bullying.
World leaders are not taking good control of the situations happening throughtout the middle east. Orchestrated by the west for shia and sunni to divide and cause genodcide on people of the same FAITH> . To me a muslim is a muslim, Shia , druzi, alawai, sunni . Throw in the mix of OIL and MONEY and there goes the middle east. Question is how long can this keep going on. YA haram for all the children across the middle east who have witnessed these crimes.

Dear naharnet I have been given reason to believe that you're moderation of comments on the board is selective in a way that favors a specific political agenda, if you care about the country, please allow more comments on the board regardless of profanity. Anyone should be able to post anything on this board due to the tense political situation. Aggressive comments are understandable and you are undermining the expression of many Lebanese people regardless of what your own biases entice you to do. I beg of you, this country needs more open communication, violent or not.

Let the men of moral conviction set aside their petty differences and unite. You should wish well to each other and learn to work as one. Very few people care enough to post their opinions on here. You complain about Lebanese stupidity while simultaneously portray an embodied example of what being a stupid arab fanatic is all about. You need each other, start taking some clean initiative for once in you pathetic lives.

@Elemental, I only signed up after I read you comments soaked in hatred and blinded by foolish alliance!! what is wrong with you, are you really talking in a sectarian racist way to your fellow citizens during this particular intense period!!! We all know that the initial foundation of our country is WRONG, we are a deeply racist and sectarian society and our laws support this none sense, while the West moved on from such barbarian claims after WWII , Hence we all know that all the leaders out there are serving their personal vindictive/financial purposes and other international alliances wether it is Hezbollah or Gegea or What's his face!!

Thumb doubledigits 03 July 2014, 00:11

why are we still arguing now that we have a common enemy, NOW Lebanese people need to be one hand and one voice to fight those terrorist coming to our land, and most of all RUINING our reputation abroad (I know that very well because I don't live in Lebanon anymore) and trust me they don't care if you are a muslim or a christian, you are an ARAB and that's enough for them to judge

Thumb doubledigits 03 July 2014, 00:14

wether you are pro Hezbollah or not, you cannot deny the fact that they are the only one standing between your head and ISIS, our army isn't strong enough and our politicians are too busy stealing your money and fighting for power... so pause, stop your arrogant non sense and stand together for once... be grateful that you have someone to defend you when there will be an attack even if you don't agree with their ideology, eventually they love the country as much as you do. wether their alliance is with Iran or the US or whatever

Thumb doubledigits 03 July 2014, 00:17

wake up!! because today alliances in the West are shifting, US backing Iran decisions, Germany defending Israel, so where are you lebanese people, you have been left behind, you are too consumed with politicians claims that change and shift over night!! so think about your country and what is best for it now, and exchanging hate and blame isn't one of them.
