FSA: Hizbullah Preparing to Send 5,000 Fighters to Homs

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The joint command of the rebel Free Syrian Army on Tuesday accused Hizbullah of “preparing to send between 4,000-5,000 fighters to Syria via Homs over the next few days.”

“On Sunday evening, Hizbullah trained its members in the Western Bekaa area near the Lebanese town of Mashghara, in preparation for sending a new batch of fighters to Syria,” the joint command said in a statement.

The FSA accused the Lebanese party of “setting up monitoring positions and deployment centers, some of them near the eight Syrian border towns occupied by the party, with the aim of providing protection and controlling the international highway connecting Damascus, Homs and the (Syrian) coast.”

The rebel group charged that “over the past three months, Hizbullah staged operations of sectarian cleansing in several border towns, especially Jousiyyeh, while dozens of houses were torched and thousands of residents were expelled.”

The joint command warned that “the future of the neighborly and brotherly relations with Lebanon is in danger and all options will be on the table if the blatant aggression against Syrian territory and citizens does not stop.”

The FSA stressed that “today, the problem is with the Lebanese state, not only with Hizbullah, and it has gone beyond that to become an Arab, regional and international issues.”

“We will deal with it within this framework,” the statement added.

The Syrian opposition has accused Hizbullah of intervening "militarily" on the side of the Syrian regime.

Hizbullah has systematically denied sending fighters into Syria, though its leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah acknowledged in October 2012 that party members had fought Syrian rebels but said they were acting as individuals and not under the group's direction.

Nasrallah clarified that Hizbullah fighters have been killed while defending Lebanese-inhabited border towns inside Syria. He explained that there are 23 Syrian border towns and 12 farms that are inhabited by Lebanese residents of various religious beliefs, adding that around 30,000 Lebanese residents live in these towns.

“The residents of these towns took the decision to stay and defend themselves against the armed groups and did not engage in the battle between the regime and the opposition,” Hizbullah's leader added.

Louay al-Meqdad, spokesman for the Supreme Council of the Free Syrian Army, has accused Hizbullah of shelling Syrian territory with artillery and rocket launchers from bases inside Lebanon.

FSA chief of staff General Selim Idriss has threatened to shell positions of Hizbullah in Lebanon.

"Hizbullah has been shelling into villages around Qusayr from Lebanese territory, and that we cannot accept," Idriss told Agence France Presse.

how would the Free Syrian Army know? Because Hezbollah makes their plans public, and Turkey has infiltrator fake Shiites who leak inside info to Saudi newspapers, right? anyways, the Free Syrian Army is bad news and if Hezbollah members are killed in Syria, they can only blame themselves for being idiots. Hopefully 5000 Lebanese Salafists go to Syria too, never to return.

Hizbullah and Bashar are two coins for one currency. One should help the other in order for both of them to survive. If one dies the other dies too. Hence, comes the full support of Huzbullah. After all, husbullah fighters are many in Lebanon and some need to go for Shahadah in Syria. Like this, their numbers will dwindle in Lebanon and become acceptable. I am for huzbullah fighting in Syria so that we in Lebanon could live in peace when they become extinct.

Eli. No it's not coincidence. Rather its intentional as seen by the wars waged on it by the west and Israel.

Hammouds your statement could be on the money, Israel is watching and monitoring no doubt what is happening in the middle east and is laughing at us who are of Arab decent.

hizbala sends mostly his poorly trained fanatics to Syria but keeps the better trained idiots in Lebanon to fulfill the Farsi mullah's wishes...hizb is putting the Lebanese Shia and their idiot Aounist Christians at risk of reprisals and terror...

5000 fighters is not enough, Hezbollah should send 10,000 fighters to the Syrian meatgrinder, at least we will be rid of them in Lebanon.
