Nusra to Hizbullah, Jabal Mohsen: We'll Strike You in Your Heartlands

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The Qaida-linked al-Nusra Front on Sunday threatened the residents of Jabal Mohsen and Hizbullah with new attacks, a day after it claimed responsibility for a twin suicide bombing that killed nine and wounded more than 37 others in the Tripoli neighborhood.

“We will spare no effort to strike you in your heartlands and you will pay the price of your continuous crimes against the Sunni community and your attacks against their holy sites in the land of Sham (Syria and Lebanon),” the Front said in a statement published on the Twitter account of its Qalamun branch, addressing its threat to Lebanon's Alawites, Hizbullah and “their allies.”

Two suicide bombers who hail from the northern city of Tripoli carried out Saturday's attack on a packed cafe in Jabal Mohsen, a Lebanese district that is largely loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Al-Nusra Front swiftly claimed the deadly twin bombing, although Interior Minister Nouhad al-Mashnouq has announced that the Islamic State group is involved in the attack, citing “preliminary” information.

The Front said the operation was in retaliation to “the attack by Jabal Mohsen's Nusayris (Alawites) on the mosques of the Sunni community in Tripoli.”

It was referring to the August 23, 2013 twin bombings that targeted Tripoli's al-Salam and al-Taqwa mosques and left 45 people dead and over 500 wounded.

The Lebanese judiciary has issued an arrest warrant in the case for Arab Democratic Party leader ex-MP Ali Eid, who failed to show up at a hearing on Saturday.

“Lebanon's government has turned a blind eye to these crimes by allowing the escape of the criminals who carried out the vicious act, in total disregard for the sentiments of the Sunni community in Lebanon,” al-Nusra added in its statement.

We are ready for you takfiris. Desperate measures you are taking these days, not doing too well in Syria are you now?

They cannot fight, only suicide bomb.

and your terrorists who are getting whipped in Qalamoun how are they getting exterminated?

Al Checheni, they were in Lebanon for a long time before the syrian crisis. Ask your beloved Ashraf Rifi about that, by the way Libtard only terrorists getting whipped in Qalamoun, is the takfiris you sponsor. They are under total siege, and a freezing to death in the mountain caves they hide in.

Is that a khomeini jihadist in your avatar?

Stop interfering with other countries affairs, and cause pain not in the south this time but in the north. No one with brain accept terrorists whichever branch they belong including your party that took #1 suicide bomb in the 1980s

Naharnet and Checheni fears my words, they have deleted my comments 5 times in a row now.

These Nusra and people like them or behind them should be stopped by any means.

Liar, Shia areas in lebanon were attacked long before Hezbollah entered Syria.

Thumb liberty 12 January 2015, 05:58

yes of course they were if you say so sectarian habib.

Says the divide and conquer Libtard from United States of garbage.

Lebanon needs to rid itself of the takfiris and the houthis. They are equally bad.

Maybe Iran is a better place for you then. Feel free to love there.

Lebanon is screwed up because we have people like Mystic aka Mr Mughniyeh who say "we are ready for you takfiris." This is why takfiri are here in the first place. We don't want takfiri to take one step on our 10,452, we don't wanna hear any of their footsteps near our borders. We want Lebanon to be a united country, that is independent and not tangled in another country's war. Let Assad have his fake war on terror, and let us secure our borders.

The Takfiris have massacred Sunni tribes in Syria and Iraq. Those Sunni tribes never did anything to them to retaliate. The Takfiris see the LAF, Christians, Druze, Shiites, Alewites as the enemy, which make up 75% of the Lebanese population. If they only consider HA as an enemy, than you can blame HA intervention in Syria. At the same time, we do not want to incite them. But, they make the decision who to attack. Why haven't they attacked the Jordanian Army that is protecting the occupying Israeli embassy in Amman or Israelis in the Golan heights and other places?

Bigjohn, your question is too forward here on Naharnet they are pro phalangist and pro takfiri. Everything that harms Hezbollah is okay, even if all Lebanon burns for it. Naharnet is the slave of zionism

Missing canadianadam 12 January 2015, 21:54

I am anti phalangist for historical reasons. But many of us are also 100% houthi, and I think our Christian brothers recognize the HA threat as great as we do takfiris.
