Hizbullah Fighters Publicly Appear at Midday in Northern Bekaa

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Hizbullah fighters heavily deployed in the northern Bekaa Valley in a first-of-its kind appearance by the party that previously sought to move discretely during the night in the area.

According to An Nahar newspaper, Hizbullah fighters moved military vehicles, cannons and rocket launchers at midday in al-Labweh, al-Ain and several other areas on the eastern mountain range near the border with Syria.

Sources said that the movement aims at confronting the Syrian opposition members on the Syrian side of the border.

In April, the army kicked off preliminary measures to begin implementing in the northern and central Bekaa a security plan similar to the one executed in the northern city of Tripoli.

The army removed then Hizbullah checkpoints between the regions of Baalbek and al-Hermel and in Arsal is the first sign of the implementation of the plan.

The impact of the Syrian crisis has been felt in the Bekaa, with the army arresting a number of gunmen attempting to enter Lebanon illegally from the neighboring country and seizing booby-trapped vehicles that were to be used in terrorist attacks in Lebanon.

They are resisting in Labweh since Israel moved its borders to eastern lebanon and Shebaa farms are now Labweh farms.

The terror party once again demonstrates its total control of Lebanon right under the nose of the LAF and in violation of the constitution. The security agencies are controlled by this terror group, paid by the terror group, and take their orders from the terror group. How can the ordinary citizen on the street, the peaceful law abiding citizen, the tax paying citizen have respect for the armed forces when he/she sees the borders violated daily by the assad regime, border villages bombarded by his air force, and the lebanese armed forces stand to watch this play unfold.

Maybe we should now axcept the fact that they r our revolutionary gards, u know we alreaddy accepted that they have their private phone network (silah al ichara) that they can tople governement (7may, black shirts), that they are above the law (5 accused by stl, boutross harb assassination attempt, hachem salman killed in daylight in front of our armed forces) that they can lauch war (they have their jihadist duty to fullfill..) and th they are dirrectly linked to islamic republic of iran and our dear suprem leader ayatolah al khomayini...
Our army was there in 7may, in blackshirts, at hachem salaman assassination (even isf were there) the army arrested sunis going to fight in syria (u know some few fanatics which should defently be arrested but for thousand of hebollah jihadist ca va....)
So maybe now they are a special unit of our army (like revolutionary gards)

Thumb ex-fpm 08 July 2014, 09:57

speakfreely; The state should protect its citizens not a sectarian militia. Second, ISIL attacks on Lebanese soil are a direct response to HA war in syria and iraq. I doubt HA is lebanese. What is your definition of Lebanese: someone who carries a Lebanese ID on the outside but follows a foreign agenda, is armed by a foreign power, and takes orders from a foreign power. Until we all agree on what Lebanese means we will continue to have severe problems.

FT. The should stand under the umbrella of the state, under the command of the Army. That's when they will gain the unconditional support and respect of most Lebanese.

Thumb jabal10452 08 July 2014, 13:22

FT, Parliament is crippled partly because of HA:s machinations (I repeat partly). HA state-within-the-state contributes to further weakening the state and all of its institution. We are caught is a vicious circle because of this. HA needs to reassess it strategies and policies and at least declare its willingness to discuss a roadmap that will lead to one, all inclusive defense institution. The roadmap needs to include a set of millstones that both camps agree to deliver. We can't continue this way.

And I want to point out that I am against HA disarming, but rather turning HA's military from a national liability into a national asset.
