The spokesman of the Qaida-linked Abdullah Azzam Brigades, Sheikh Sirajeddin Zureikat, vowed to demolish the security zones of Hizbullah in Beirut and nearby areas.
“We will target Hizbullah's security premises on the Lebanese coast, in the Ouzai and nearby areas,” Zureikat said in an online recording on the memorial of the one-year bombing that targeted the Iranian Embassy in the southern suburbs of Beirut, a stronghold of Hizbullah.
Zureikat said that the “the assault against the embassy wasn't the first and the Iranian Cultural Center wasn't the last.”
Zureikat stressed in his message that Hizbullah's interest in Lebanon will be targeted “in retaliation for the party's acts in Syria.”
The suicide attack against the Iranian Embassy in 2013 and the Iranian Cultural Center in 2014 killed scores of people and wounded dozens.
The Abdullah Azzam Brigades claimed responsibility for the double bombing, vowing additional attacks in retaliation to Hizbullah's involvement in the Syria war.
Hizbullah has dispatched fighters to battle alongside the Syrian regime against rebels seeking the overthrow of President Assad.
