Nasrallah Claims Labbouneh Blast, Says Hizbullah Will Confront Any Future Violations

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah Wednesday claimed last week's Labbouneh blasts that wounded four Israeli soldiers, saying his party "will face" any further border violations by the Jewish state.

"We had prior information that the Israelis were going to pass through this zone. Bombs were placed there and when they came that night, they were detonated," Nasrallah told Beirut-based satellite television station al-Mayadeen.

He explained: “What happened in (the southern town of) Labbouneh took place under the sight to the resistance’s fighters and we already knew Israelis would cross into Lebanese territories and thus, we have planted explosive devices there.”

“It is a newly planted bomb and not an Israeli remnant of the July 2006 war. The incidence was an intended operation and did not happen by coincidence. We took the decision to target Israelis in Labbouneh because the border is under the control of the Lebanese army and the state.”

The Lebanese army said last week that a group of Israeli soldiers crossed the border into the southern area of Labbouneh near Naqoura and were wounded in an explosion which reports have said was caused by a landmine.

The communique said the Israeli troops reached as far as 400 meters inside Lebanon.

Nasrallah said the Israeli troops' advancement into Lebanon is “a clear violation.”

The Hizbullah chief also vowed to “confront any further violations of Lebanon's sovereignty.”

"We will not accept Israeli violations of our territory," Nasrallah warned. "As soon as we know that the Israelis have entered Lebanese territory, the party will face (them) in timely fashion."

“No official texts say we do not have the right to confront anyone that violates our land. We have the right not to stay silent after violations and these are violations with goals.”

Nasrallah, however, criticized President Michel Suleiman's stance after the incidence, saying that he had a “weak position.”

Suleiman had urged the Lebanese Army and United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon leaderships to expand the investigation into the infiltration of an Israeli patrol into southern Lebanon.

On the eve of the end of the 2006 war against Israel, Nasrallah recalled in his interview the preparations that preceded the war and admitted receiving weapons from Syria.

"We owe Syria this and we have to admit that we did receive weapons from the neighboring country," he said.

Nasrallah added: "The Syrian regime received our people, supported us and opened its weapon stocks to the resistance. The regime was even ready to fight with us."

“After May 25, 2000, people celebrated the liberation but we considered that we should start readying ourselves for any war waged by Israel,” he noted.

He continued: “When the kidnap of the two Israeli soldiers took place, our fighters were ready and logistically we were also ready for any war. And during the 33 days of fighting, the resistance was not confused or lost on ground or in managing the operations because this was already planned.”

Nasrallah pointed out that what safeguarded Beirut in 2006 was the resistance “and not a political decision.”

He also considered that the weak point of Israel was represented in the losses it suffered.

“What counts in winning or losing a battle is the amount of losses,” Nasrallah expressed.

You seriously should consider & use your influence to place ALL Palestinians Refugees currently in Lebanon & placing them all along the Israeli / Lebanese border , you will apply massive pressure on the Israeli & on the international community to act by pressuring Israel to accept Palestinians into the West Bank & also to stop all illegal settlement already built as well about to be built . The other benefit would be the camps along with the 1.3 million Syrian Refugees would act as a buffer zone between the two countries, they would not dare to fire a bullet or try to invade our country but instead it will be in their face applying pressure without rest or peace ! Give it a thought for a moment the Israelis would not have a moment of peace but anarchy even within their own state & amongst their people !

With all honesty, I think if HA enters into another war like the one of 2006 the Israelis will destroy them once and for all. It's very wise of Nassrallah to realise that he's very small compared to Israel's might and it would be a great adventure to out lebanon through another destructive war that would destroy its economy as well. Enough of postering from HA because the reality is very dire for them. I hate the Israelis, but this doesn't stop me from assessing the risks that HA is putting Lebanon under through its irrational postering.

Again, making state decisions of war and peace in complete disregard of the state, and then turning around and complaining of the weakness of the state. Nasrallah is like the child who murdered his parents and then cried that he is now an orphan.

He claims justification under international law when it suits him and completely disregards international law with regard to violations on the Syrian borders when violation of the law suits his interests. His "legal" justifications, whereby he poses as a civilized man, mask the completely uncivilized manner in which Nasrallah acts and is dragging Lebanon unless the Lebanese can cut themselves loose from this barbarian

Mr. Nasrallah needed this incident to reclaim Hezbollah's resistance role. Israeli media barely noticed it while Hezbollah's media, including Al Manar and Al Akhbar, made it into something big, an act of heroism.
Mr. Nasrallah who used to head the party's propaganda division knows the value of a heroic tale, (he actually succeeded in persuading his audience that he won the war in 2006, although it was a crushing strategic defeat for Iran and its proxy). This tale of Labbouneh is to cover the political disaster of the party's intervention in Syria.

Some of the propane tanks were used to ignite the explosives. Some of the trays were highly-explosive C4. Some of the spoons were used in these explosives to maximize the collateral damage.

In a civilized country, if troops from a neighboring country cross the border, a warning is given, warning shots fired and then if that doesn't work, maybe you fire on the soldiers to get them to retreat back to from where they came.

In Hezbollah occupied Lebanon, they are simply blown up without any warning. And then the Hezbollah rushes to the microphones and cameras to preen and pound his chest over the act of bravery of killing people without warning by land mine. What act of courage is that to kill by surprise?

The point, FT, which your myoptic view surely does not allow you to see, is that if Hezbollah is to claim fighting superiority and prowess against the Israels, they should poi t to occasions when they have met on a file of battle and showed more mettle and fighting spirit that Israeli soldiers. Only a coward kills with hidden bombs. In fact it is a sign of weakness, the tactics of the weak and cowardly to kill by planting bombs. This is not something to be proud about.
