إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The son of Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah was the target of the abduction of the 11 Lebanese pilgrims in Syria in May, reported Ad Diyar daily on Tuesday.

He was thought to be on the bus carrying the Lebanese back from a pilgrimage in Iran, Syrian opposition sources told the daily.

The men were on their way back from a pilgrimage in Iran when gunmen intercepted their buses in the northern Syrian province of Aleppo.

According to the sources who spoke on condition of anonymity, Nasrallah's son was thought to be on the bus with a fake identity card and the captors demanded an apology on Nasrallah's part in return for his release.

Turkish intelligence stepped in the investigation upon Iran's request, the sources added, and assured that the son of the Hizbullah leader was not on the bus.

Eleven Lebanese pilgrims were kidnapped by the rebel Free Syrian Army in the northern province of Aleppo on May 22 as they were returning home from Iran.

One abductee was released in August in what his captors said was a “goodwill” gesture and another was released in September.

The kidnappers had repeatedly linked the release of the Lebanese captives to Nasrallah, a close ally of the Syrian regime, apologizing over his stances on the Syrian revolt.

So then it is clear that Turkey together with the zionists collaborated in the kidnapping of the Lebanese! Turkey cannot be trusted, the Armenian genocide mentality has not changed in the mind of the Turks.

The son of Nasrallah would go to Iran on a Bus ???

Billions of dollars in aid over the years and Nassrallah can't afford to buy him a plane ticket ?

I wonder if the captors or hezbollah are dumber.

It is clear that Turkish authorities at the border point are collaborating with the so called FSA terrorist organization by informing FSA terrorists on the Lebanese whom the Turkish checked the documents of and suspected that Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah's son is one of the people on the bus before crossing into Syria. Turkey is allowing foreign terrorists train and plan terror attacks inside Syria and Turkey supply the terrorists with arms and other logistics the terrorists are in need of. Turkey committed genocide on the Armenians and have big mind complex and that has not changed and Turkey are directly contributing to the genocide of Syrians inside Syria by its support to terrorism.
