Tarshish Residents Prevent Hizbullah from Expanding its Telecom. Network in Town

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The residents of the town of Tarshish in the Zahleh region prevented on Friday members of Hizbullah from expanding the party’s telecommunications network in the area, reported the daily An Nahar on Saturday.

It explained that party members sought to expand the network as a team from the Telecommunications Ministry was installing fiber optic cables to improve internet services.

“The municipal police noticed the party’s activity and prevented it from continuing its work,” it added.

An Internal Security Forces patrol soon arrived at the scene to tackle the situation.

Soon after, Hizbullah official Hussein Janbey arrived at the scene and a meeting was held between the Tarshish municipal council, headed by Gaby Samaan, and Hizbullah delegation headed by Janbey, reported al-Liwaa daily on Saturday.

The municipal delegation informed Hizbullah of the residents’ rejection of the installation of the party’s network in the town because they believe it to be illegal.

For its part, Hizbullah insisted on completing its activity, while the residents maintained their position resulting in tensions between the two sides and the “stormy meeting” ended, added the daily.

The party delegation informed the residents that they had experienced more difficult situations in the past, insisting on continuing its activity and stressing that no one would stop it, reported al-Liwaa.

A source from Tarshish told the daily that the town was surprised when Hizbullah members arrive to expand their network, revealing that another meeting will be held to tackle the affair.

In addition, it said that this issue had started three months ago and the government and concerned ministries had not taken any action over this matter “despite the fact the party is trying to expand its network in the town by force.”

Meanwhile, Telecommunications Minister Nicolas Sehnaoui said in a statement: “No side, whether it is official or unofficial, has the right to use the ministry’s network for its personal use without first receiving legal permission from the ministry to do so.”

MTV later reported on Saturday that armed individuals and cars with tinted windows have been spotted in Tarshsih after Hizbullah was prevented from expanding its telecommunications network.

The Arab Spring started in Lebanon on March 14th, 2005, and it will end in Lebanon, when the iranian and syrian spies and traitors will be defeated.
That day is coming soon, and all the citizens of Lebanon, just like the great people of Tarshish, need to do their part. Say NO to the hizbiran terrorists and their weapons of mass destruction. It's time to rid Lebanon of the syrian and iranian cancers

Another demonstration that the "coexistance", "democracy", and "unity" values used by the Hezb are just a joke while all their real acts are proving the opposite.
A state inside the state geting orders from a foreign state.

Hezbollah continues building its mini "Islamic Republic" and the brave town of Tarshish is standing in the way! Any questions?

The magnificent Islamic Resistance has the right to operate independently anywhere in Lebanon just like the glorious Palestinian Resistance did in the seventies . I just hope the Zionist Christians don't start arming and attack the Islamic Resistance like they did the Palestinian Resistance , if they do we will finish the job this time once and for all .

They(Hizb) would like to tap/sniff our Internet traffic to ensure no zionist communicate freely on the Internet without their authorization.
Let's see who will be killed/assassinated near soon. I am sure the callers of the zionist war department will blame the mossad for it.

Hezbo will not be disarmed easily. The only way to defeat Hezbo is allowing them their own state and we annex the rest of Lebanon. They have their own country and the rest of the Lebanese (Muslims, Christians, Druze, etc) coexist together in our own state....a 2 state solution is not only for Israel/Palestine. It's going to be a necessity in Lebanon as well.

Lebanon first, if that is true then how do you explain that your leaders were huge allies with the tyrants that so far have been thrown in the trash can, not to forget those that still are able to rule with an iron fist? Im anti-march8 but come on, when you try to label march14 as the starter of the arab spring then its simply embarassing. The two have nothing to do with each other. In fact all march14 leaders have close ties with the arab dictators. Saad hariri is practicly an extension of al saud family. Gemayel was one of the last leaders to meet with mubarak. Geagea is close to al saud family. Jumblatt as well was allied with many of the tyrants, probably partly still is so please dont insult us with such a stupid statement.

The armed men in tinted cars is just a prelude
Soon you will either hear that a municipal council member disappeared in mysterious circumstances, or his parked car blew up due to a bomb placed underneath it during the night. To which of course the official stance will be that bomb was due to personal business problem - and do nothing about it
Tarshish residents will then have to make up their mind, allowing the Hizzy network or face insecurity.

Now that everyone knows that the network is going through Tarsheesh, why doesn't someone install and connect equipment that would allow him/her to listen in? Hooking up to any cable network must be easy, especially if the network is so spread out and so widely publicized. Wouldn't making the network easy to find be a sure way of defeating its stated purpose of keeping communications from being tapped into? Who's the decision-maker behind this network? Shouldn't he/she be concerned with all this publicity?

Tarshish is mentioned in the bible many times.This is the sign of the end for the evil roaming the land of milk and honey. The crusaders are back to clean up the land . Look at the mediterannean ocean now and see all the firgates gathering there. Now that one of the 6 beasts is dead . the next beast in syria is the target. All his horns in iran and lebanon will be cut off. On Feb 2012 Lebanon will rise again FREE INDEPENDENT AND CLEAN FROM THE FILTH THAT ROAMED INTO ITS LANDS FOR YEARS. TARSHISH WILL BE THE LAUNCHING POINT OF SOMETHING BIG THAT IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. LUCKY IS THE ONE WHO WILL SURVIVE TO SEE THE SUNSHINE AGAIN IN LEBANON.

Even the Lebanese army does not have its own telecom network.....!!! This is a prime example of how the blasphemous party of thugs have eroded the State and its institutions. However, this so called State deserves everything it gets.... Aoun the psychopath and his followers are the main reason we are in this situation. So, enjoy the fruits of your actions and your MOU with the blasphemous party. .. Prosper,Flourish and Multiply....!

Thumb canaanite 23 October 2011, 08:34

So this is how you create an Israeli spy?

One of the dissatisfied residents gets a call from Israeli intelligence and being so disgruntled by the telecoms network down the road from his house, tells the Israelis where the Telecoms network is to be bombed when Hezbollah chooses to fight Israel the next time...

As Gaddafi's last words ring true: "Do you know good from evil"?

i say bring Aoun to the centre of Tarshish and hang him from the nearest and tallest tree.
