Six Hizbullah Fighters Evacuated from Syrian Besieged Towns Return to Lebanon

Six Hizbullah fighters have reportedly returned to Lebanon on Friday from the besieged Syrian towns of al-Fuaa and Kafraya as part of an evacuation deal between Damascus’s s ally Russia and Turkey, LBCI quoted a Hizbullah source on Friday.

The evacuation of nearly 7,000 people besieged for years in two pro-regime towns of Fuaa and Kafraya follows a series of similar deals to remove residents and fighters from contested zones.

Fuaa and Kafraya were the last areas under blockade in Syria and rare examples of pro-government towns surrounded by rebel forces.

Hizbullah media officer, Mohammed Afif, has reportedly said: “The fighters have returned to Lebanon from the Syrian towns of Fuaa and Kefraya. They have been besieged for three years,” said the source.

“Their liberation comes as part of an evacuation deal with al-Nusra Front and other factions,” he said.

Most previous "reconciliation" deals have involved towns under crippling siege by government forces, with rebel fighters and civilians evacuated to the northwestern province of Idlib, the last rebel stronghold.

Please! Six terrorists, not fighters.

Perhaps I'm wrong but something feels odd about the spelling " Damascus’s s ally "

are there any shia shrines in these syrian towns?

Did Abbas Ibrahim, the head of General Security, welcome them at the border?

@antonio

As a 'Christian" of European parents why do you always defend the shia terrorists?

because he is a fake and a heretic himself.

The Shia crime of the day

قتل الشاب ج.ش (30 عامًا) إثر إصابته بطلق ناري في عنقه، نتيجة خلاف فردي بينه وبين عدد من الشبان بالقرب من قلعة بعلبك الاثرية.

وعلى الفور تدخلت القوى الأمنية وأوقفت عددا من المتورطين في الحادثة، من بينهم مطلق النار.

Besieged for years? Or was it they did not want to fight and opted to stay there? Strange as it may seem many found a new life in Syria, some opted to get married there and settled so maybe they had to come back to Lebanon as the area was getting evacuated.

Thank you southern for being patriotic and for posting as such.

It is a blessing to read your many posts as they are enlightening, factual and to the point. I was not surprised to learn from your post that s.o.s the terrorist is half jew half daeshist. I always had doubts about s.o.s the terrorist and his ancestry and sexual orientation but never about you.

You optimize the pinnacle of impartiality, logic and common sense and for that I am grateful.

Please, keep posting because the World is Listening.
