Berri: Resistance Fighters Battling Militants on Behalf of Lebanon

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Speaker Nabih Berri lauded the “efforts” of the Resistance fighters as he assured that they are battling al-Nusra Front militants in the outskirts of Arsal “on behalf of Lebanon and the Lebanese,” al-Joumhouria daily reported on Tuesday.

“The outskirts of Arsal is an occupied Lebanese land. It is our duty to liberate it. The Resistance is fighting the terrorists there. It is doing so on behalf of Lebanon and the entire Lebanese without exception, just as our fight against the Israelis in the south (in 2006) expressed the opinion of Lebanon and Lebanese,” Berri was quoted by the daily as telling his visitors.

“Today, the troika of Army, People, Resistance stands out to express itself well. Today, like always, the people stand behind the Army and the Resistance,” he added.

Berri's remarks came after Hizbullah announced a major push on Friday along the eastern border to clear both sides of Lebanon's border with Syria from "armed terrorists".

The clashes are focused on outskirts of Arsal, a mountainous area around the Lebanese border town of Arsal.

The Lebanese army has not officially declared its participation in the offensive but has fired shells on "terrorists" in the area.

On Monday, the army and the Lebanese Red Cross helped 79 women and children refugees fleeing the outskirts' camps into the town of Arsal, Lebanon's official National News Agency (NNA) said.

Some political factions, mainly the Kataeb party and al-Mustaqbal Movement condemned Hizbullah's operations.

The Kataeb Party had on Monday accused the ruling political class of “giving up sovereignty,” in connection with Hizbullah's operation.

They're thugs and need to be arrested and tried. Where's out democracy? Where's justice? Do we need to arm ourselves like the stinky pro Iran filth in order to obtain things?

there is an ongoing investigation by an in-house army panel. its findings are almost complete and point at the women using excessive force against the soldiers and their officers due to abnormal weather conditions on the day of the incident.

We know what you did with HA in 2008! It certainly was on behalf of Iran and nobody else... not to mention the civil war and its load of crimes and atrocities you committed.

Thumb liberty 26 July 2017, 05:37

Berri: Resistance Fighters Battling Militants on Behalf of Lebanon

Let's make his resistance the official army and save billions in what appears to be unnecessary spending.

Thumb barrymore 25 July 2017, 11:03

and this is the Speaker of the Lebanese Parliament who is making this outrageous statement!!!!
Why doesn't he tell us if the Parliament that he speaks on its behalf approved the terrorist militia acting on behalf of Lebanon.

I have the utmost respect and admiration for Speaker Berri for informing us that Hezbollah and the resistance are battling militants on behalf of Lebanon.

Berri: Resistance Fighters Battling Militants on Behalf of Lebanon

No they are not. They are acting on direct orders of the iranian regime. The Lebanese army is the only entity that should act on behalf of Lebanon.
