Three Injured as Rockets Fall on Hermel, One on Army Postإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Several rockets fired from the Lebanese-Syrian border area struck the Hermel region on Tuesday, leaving three people injured, including two soldiers.
"Starting 4:30 p.m. this afternoon, six rockets fired from the Syrian side of the border landed in the town of Hermel, one of them inside an army barracks in the al-Dawra neighborhood, leaving two soldiers lightly wounded and causing material damage," an army statement said.
"Army forces have started inspecting the targeted locations to accurately identify the source and types of the rockets while the appropriate measures have been taken on the ground," it added.
Shortly after the shelling, the Marwan Hadid Brigades, an Islamist rebel group operating in Syria, claimed responsibility for the attack in a Twitter message, saying it was carried out in collaboration with the “al-Nusra Front in Lebanon.”
“The al-Nusra Front in Lebanon and the Marwan Hadid Brigades announce that they have targeted the strongholds of Iran's party in the Lebanese area of Hermel with 10 Grad rockets, in response to the entry of the Iranian party into Syria and the continued killing and detention of Sunni youths in Lebanon,” the Brigades said in another statement.
“God willing, operations will continue against Iran and its party in Syria and Lebanon,” the group warned.
State-run National News Agency said “two rockets hit residential areas in Hermel during clashes inside Syria.”
It later said the two rockets were fired from the Eastern Lebanon Mountain Range on the border with Syria, with one of them hitting a Lebanese military post and leaving several soldiers lightly wounded.
The other rocket landed in central Hermel, injuring a man and causing damage to shops, it said.
The rocket attack comes only hours after a booby-trapped car exploded near a Hizbullah post in the northern Baalbek town of Sbouba, south of Hermel.
Hermel and other Bekaa areas were hit by several rockets in recent months, with Syrian rebels claiming most of the attacks, which they say are in retaliation to Hizbullah's military intervention in Syria.
President Michel Suleiman has several times stressed the need to take the necessary measures to protect Lebanese citizens and towns and respond to the sources of gunfire.
no, no dont thank HA, thank m14 for inviting takfiris and giving them shelter, weapons and finance to support them in their glorious quest of making the sun rise in the Levant. thank the spearheads of democracy in the region, saudi and qatar, for being so altruistic in bringing to us what they dont even have themselves and granting us, in their infinite generosity, the gift freedom
also note that takfiri rockets, like everything they throw, including bullets, shells, goats and knives, are guided by the will of god and will therefore only strike evil doers.
the fact that holy rockets fell on the lebanese army is the ultimate and definite proof which geha was seeking in his spiritual quest on mount Sinai, to confirm that this entity belongs to satan.
mowaten: you are in absolute denial, so I will not bther again with your comments that denote a 6 year old boy.
just enjoy your hizbushaitan and all the gifts he is bringing you.
just one word of advice: please stay away from all probable attacks on shia areas as we would not want to lose you just because hizbushaitan have decided to go fight in Syria.
just now: new rockets have fallen in Hermel area!
this is what hizbushaitan has brought to Lebanon.
evil evil hizbushatainou! throwing rockets on hermel!
sure moowaten if israel wanted bashar out he would be out a long time ago... but the fact is that israel prefer having bashar in power... but of course you hezbi are blind to see that because it would mean you are an ally to israel LOL!
plus your beloved assad has sheltered financed trained manipualted all kinds of islamists cells in syria... he is still manipulating them to justify their massacres and the intervention of the hezbi gang...
and yes your hezbis friends are the ones pushing takfiris to these acts of terrorism in lebanon... like it or not mooowaten.
my answer to you which was censored anonyme:
could it be? or could it be that they are serving the takfiris and working with them? jordan explicitly and israel implicitly?
they both want assad out, and dont care about syrians in general and alawites/shiites in particular. jordan doesnt have tens of thousands of its citizens threatened by them, neither does israel since besides words the takfiris never as much as scratched an israel. jordan surrendered to israel decades ago, is a dictatorial monarchy where people live like dirt but dont dare speak up, and jordan accepted to let its population become over 60% palestinian.
would you want the same in lebanon?
Is that you, flamethrower, pictured in the photo in this article. I could swear it is you. I apologize if I made a mistake.
OR : they can withdraw from Syria and stop this war. This way, the rebels will turn all their attention to Bashar.
No LEBANESE asked them to fight there. Why do they have to fight ?
I will tell you why : So that the rebels are divided into several fronts. Not to "protect" lebanon from the virtual threats ! All the bombs that targeted Hezbollistan would never have happened were it not for their ILLEGAL intervention in Syria.
I hope they all die for their actions (this is not a prayer Roar as my god doesn't enjoy death and weapons like Nasrallah's god).
"I hope they all die [...] my god doesn't enjoy death"
he will kill you, but never murder a soul, because it is a sin.
Happy to see the two kings of contradiction commenting back :)
Yes, hoping means wishing a future outcome will happen. It has nothing to do with praying.
Unlike you, Nasrallah, I don't invoke god interference and don't build my fake victories on "God's Will".
Hezbollah did not drive out Israel from Lebanon. There was no DIVINE victory... Israel pulled out whether in 2000 or 2006.
I'm happy to see you ignorant fools trying to tackle and twist words to your advantage. This only serves to depict you as the ignorant fools that you and your kind are (sheep) ...
Keep hiding behind your fake god like you usually do. With his fake "Hezb" and their very real weapons of death !
@Roar : HA entered Syria under the orders of Bashar / Iran.
Don't try and make it look like they went to "defend" the LAF. That's a pityful excuse. You or Hezbollah do not care about the LAF. The LAF is your biggest ENNEMY because a strong LAF means no more Hezbollah weapons !
The LAF doesn't need Hezbollah to defend itself and has shown this at numerous occasions including Nahr el Bared (Hezbollah was against their intervention).
You really think other people are as gullible and dumb as you are ?
Welcome to Hezbollah democracy : Fake Voters and Fake votes :)
Keep voting me down your losers ... it's easier for you than coming up with a straight reply to my comments.
I must really be annoying you with the ugly truth ! Keep hiding your heads in the ground you ostriches !
It's funny that you're not only a Sheep, you're a racist Sheep ! What's wrong with Goats ? You think you're better than them ?
Wiping floors :) That's all you guys will ever be good for.
I don't know what post you are referring to but the only mop he seems to be using is his brain ...
I love your democratic value : create tens of fake account to vote yourself up and your opponents down.
This is the M8 understanding of elections ! And they dare talk about democracy ! While supporting tyrants !
Question: honestly, if anyone can answer me, where did they acquire Russian made rockets? KSA and gulf countries are equipped with American weapons, so are the turks.
benzona..... mind me asking you a question? Do you think flamethrower's gold tooth shines when he smiles?
answered you in the mustaqbal news report ;-)
please, read this article on naharnet in which they talk about mowaten and flamethrower.
oh thanks for your answer. it's much appreciated. now we know that Assad isn't worthy of holding such weapons because he can lose sight of them. yes, it's like leaving a loaded weapon in a closet. who's responsible, the teenage kid who used it, or the parent? Both, but the parent's responsibility is more engaged. so, back to the subject, thanks to the butcher's negligence we're getting weapons in our backyards. this reasoning also applies to HA. If there weren't hezbollah checkpoints in Baalbeck in the first place, there wouldn't have been an attack there. Me comprends-tu?
Benzona, what are you going to use "DJI Phantom Aerial UAV Drone Quadcopter for GoPro" for? If you plan to fly the Drone above Nassrallah rat hole hideout, then I will buy it for you for Christmas... Best wishes bro!! I hope you get your target...
mr.black, let me tell it to your thick head again. We don't defend Al-Qeada's atrocities in Lebanon. In fact we hate those bastards. But we also hate Hizbullah bastards as well. Because they are both equal. None of them is working for the sake of Lebanon. Stop twisitng the facts.
well when two islamists terrorists bomb each other , it is nothing but rejoicing, don't you think?
alqaeda: a sword and words from the koran.
hezbollah: a koran and a kalashnikov and calls itself : islamic resitance(and not lebanese resistance)...
and party of God! as if God needs a party! LOL pure complex of superiority thinking that God chose them to represent Him!LOL
the one in need of a stray jacket is you not to see that hezbollah and alqaeda are the SAME THINGS.... LOL
so when two pests kill each other well , it is rejoicing...
lol what facts? That you are still the hysterical girl, that you always have been in here?
go and play with girls your age now....
I love your posts and how you bring a comical side of the resistance to this forum. I am one of your 11 fans so far. But, don't let this popularity get to your head. Keep up the good work.
I have a request for naharnet's webmaster(s): could you -por favor- upload higher resolution pictures. when we open the thumbnails, the definition is still too poor for comfortable viewing. very often the pictures are blurry on the tablet and laptop. i know it eats bandwidth, then you should give the option to open larger files only when requested....
gracias for hearing me out.
