Syrian Observatory: Hizbullah Takes Control of Strategic Heights in Qalamoun

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Hizbullah backed by Syrian forces controlled on Thursday strategic heights in the Syrian region of Qalamoun that abuts Lebanon's eastern border, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The control of the area on the outskirts of Assal al-Wared came following heavy clashes with al-Qaida linked al-Nusra Front, it said in a statement.

The battles were accompanied by heavy shelling by Syrian warplanes.

The Britain-based Observatory stressed that there were casualties from both sides.

Hizbullah's Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised speech late Tuesday that his group will attack militants in Qalamoun, stressing that "time will tell" when the battle will become full blown.

He added that there will be no formal announcement before the widely anticipated battle begins.

Nasrallah vowed that his group will continue fighting in Syria along with President Bashar Assad's forces.

Now the heighest point of Qalamoun belongs to the Resistance, to overlook the rest of the area.

Suddenly the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is credible ma hek? Go count your losses in Idlib and Jisr Alshoghour. And it is no resistance it is a mercenary militia paid by Iran to protect ASSad.

Thumb Mystic 07 May 2015, 15:06

Too bad for you mohamed, you thought by taking Idlib the war was won.

Soon the takfiris lifeline to Lebanon will be cut, then your fake 5alifah plans goes into the drain.

قتيلان من "حزب الله" في المعارك الدائرة في محيط بلدة عسال الورد.
Assal alwared has been under assad's and the sectarian militia forces for some time now. They took 3 hill tops today but the rebels have just regained 2 of them. The hizballah leader of the operation was killed.

Thumb Mystic 07 May 2015, 16:37

Yeah according to NowHariri and Al Jazeera, Arabiya then the Resistance lost 10.000 commanders by now. Watch Tom & Jerry instead.

I never doubted this reported or the Observatory but you both have on many occasion. Your sectarian militia fighting for vilayet e faqih won a hill lol go celebrate.

Thumb Mystic 07 May 2015, 17:09

The Observatory can go down the drain for all I care, they support takfiris and even claimed Assad was killed several times, just like the rest of the takfiri media.

I read this on other news outlets confirming this, so yes this is for real this time.

Bahahahaha Iran funded Press TV

Thumb Mystic 07 May 2015, 17:27

Press TV reports from the frontline, while your Britain-based takfiri Observatory operates from some office in London.

all this rhetoric and spamming for just a few hilltops? :)
this is still preparations for the battle! what will you all do later on when the battle really starts? :) enjoy your day guys :)

Missing mohammad_ca 07 May 2015, 19:14

yes yes the prestigious Press TV that is a mouthpiece to vilayet e faqih that was one of the very few (bogus) media outlets that were allowed to cover from inside Syria by the ASSad regime.

mohamed, March 14 alliance is not Lebanon. Lebanon is Lebanon, the resistance freed Lebanon from zionists and are about to free it now of takfirism.

I would say that the Resistance already paid alligiance to Lebanon by doing these jobs.

Missing mohammad_ca 08 May 2015, 10:42

But your leader stated very clearly that none of his decisions are his or Lebanon's but they are from vilayet e faqih. Are you disagreeing with your sayed then?

Count the days before Syrians in Lebanon will attack your positions. Same as you are doing in Syria.

Missing peace 07 May 2015, 15:23

except that the French resistance was a true resistance whereas your hezbis are just iranian paid militiamen... no comparison possible between the two unlike what you try to do to make your outlaws pass as heroes LOL

Thumb the_roar 07 May 2015, 16:01

The French resistance was treated by the French exactly how HA is being treated today...Half were against the resistance &even served Germany

No diff today...half oppose the Resistance & serve KSA(Is,Nusra,Qiada)
etc.

Same story diff day/.. French resistance goes down in history for its brave sacrifice despite all odds....History will also show Lebanons resistance & its sacrifice.

Missing peace 07 May 2015, 16:27

and again i repeat for those deaf M8 ears: the French resistance has nothing to do with hezbollah.

do not stain the French resistance by comparing it to an iranian militia!

but then again M8ers love to compare two incomparable things for the sake of their propaganda: it only fools idiots...

Thumb the_roar 07 May 2015, 16:33

Because you say so? There is nothing but the exact same thing.

RESISTANCE ...be it French, Lebanese or whatever.

Some die for their land rather than crawl on their knees but be alive.

Many many Congratulations to the brave men of Lebanon.

Another sacrifice in order to safeguard Lebanon has come up trumps.

Isis Nusra Qaida & all M14 will be mourning this strategic loss.

M14 knew how the battle was going & rushed to make a public statement today how only the LAF can protect the border.

Yet those same M14ers are who shackles the LAF & are responsible for them killed or kidnapped.

God bless those who defy, resist & sacrifice for their land.
HA well done once again.

Missing peace 07 May 2015, 16:24

"those same M14ers are who shackles the LAF "
pityful liar as usual: the army denies all you M8 BS ....

You spoke with those that are kidnapped & came back to report?

"Army chief Gen. Jean Qahwaji said on Wednesday that the differences among the country's rival leaders would not stop the military from defending Lebanon, vowing to continue the battle against terrorists.

“The political disputes will not thwart the army's sacred duties in defending Lebanon,” he said in a speech at the Beirut Bar Association."

but then again i guess you know better than the army chief himself because elmanar told you so.....

Thumb the_roar 07 May 2015, 16:36

Its called politics...What choices does he have?

The LAF survives not by the backing of its leaders but by being treated as begging outsiders for riff raff second grade weapons.

He is doing his best to keep those that make the LAF beg happy.

Make no mistake the LAF are doing their best under the circumstances.
But boy are they happy HA cuts the breeze for them.

Thumb Mystic 07 May 2015, 16:54

peaches, go talk to the LAF soldiers stationed around Arsal, they will indeed tell you whom hold them in shackles and ropes. The March 14 likes to hold the army back, it is becoming their hobby, because that's all they can do with their mandates. They can't stop the Resistance from defending Lebanon, but they can stop the LAF.

Missing peace 07 May 2015, 16:56

sure miss tic sure... if you say so it must be true then LOL

Thumb the_roar 07 May 2015, 16:10

double posting shows how cut you are about your M14 partners losses.

Get over it or get used to it.

Lebanon will not allow your takfiri friends to enter...No matter how hard you try & paint HA this or that.

The French resistance was also called many names at the time....A duty must be performed to safeguard the nation & HA are here to do it.

Thumb the_roar 07 May 2015, 16:13

& Thank God they were in Syria..At least someone protected the Christian villages...They even rang the Church bells in a town that still speaks the Lords Language of the day.

Where was M14 & their friends to protect the minorities?

The French resistance was called much worse in its time also.

By whom? oh yes those who served the enemy inc Germany against its own people.

Today we have the same rhetoric against the Resistance.

But it shall not even cause a ripple in their determination.

if you say so....

If it stood to you LF fascists then Lebanon would be overrun by now. Yet you do not lift a finger for fellow Christians in the region. Just talking about your ancient history 30 years ago, no action what so ever.

Lebanon is already run by islamists : it is called hezbollah...

Thumb Mystic 07 May 2015, 16:35

Do you see churches being burned, or peaceful people killed because of their faith? The Resistance don't do that, facts on the table peaches.

The Resistance don't run Lebanon, they control themselves and their own business. Business you want to run yourselves, that will not be accepted.

Missing peace 07 May 2015, 16:51

miss tic: islamism takes many shapes... it does not only boil down to burning churches or killing people because of their faith... hezbollah is much more insidious than that...

but you cannot see it so brainwashed you are....

Thumb Mystic 07 May 2015, 17:00

As a matter of fact you write texas, now where are those facts? Do you have any sort of documentation for that? Now I got plently of facts regarding your so called "Syrian" democracy loving fighters - Nusra and ISIS, burning churches and taking takfiri taxes from minorities, or even worse beheading them.

There is actually one guy here in Lebanon, well known for the bombing of a church = Samir Geagea.

Thumb Mystic 07 May 2015, 17:30

1994 bombing at the Church of Sayyidet Al Naja, was indeed Geagea even though he don't admit it himself. He got arrested aswell

Geagea murdered a whole family including a 3 year old girl in cold blod, during the Ehden Massacre and elsewhere. What should stop him from bombing a Church?

Thumb Mystic 07 May 2015, 18:00

I wouldn't count on you admitting it neither texas, so you deny the Ehden Massacre committed by Geagea and the other phalangists aswell?

Missing peace 07 May 2015, 18:06

i love M8ers tactics to avoid answering embarassing questions... they refer to what has happened 20 years ago to avoid answering to what their militia is doing now! LOL @those sissies unable to assume...

facts are facts: the present fact is that hezbollah is an islamist fanatic militia ...

Thumb Mystic 07 May 2015, 18:54

Actually it is the other way around texas. The first 3 years of the Syrian conflict, the West didn't report jack about the takfiris crimes, back then they were called Syrian freedom fighters, moderate rebels, liberty loving people.

The West only started accusing those takfiris when they beheaded westerners.

Now the West is using another tone, the takfiris are not popular anymore. Regular western people lost interest in Syria.
