Al-Nusra Front in Lebanon stated on Sunday that the Lebanese army “has become a pawn in the hands of the Shiite project” in Lebanon.

It accused Shiite members of the army of taking part in the fighting in Syria, “defying any side to hold those who ordered them to go there accountable for their actions.”

It made its accusation in a “clarification” on the “true role of the Lebanese army” published on its Twitter page.

It noted: “Since its formation, the army never once dared to confront the Israeli or Syrian armies that occupied Lebanon.”

“The Lebanese army only dared to oppress the Sunnis under the excuse that it is the guarantee of the Lebanese people,” it added.

“In reality, the army is only a guarantee for the Velayat-e faqih agenda,” said the Nusra Front in Lebanon.

“Look at prisons in Lebanon. Don't you see that they are filled with Sunnis, held on baseless charges,” it continued.

“Does anyone dare to arrest any Shiite that headed to fight in Syria?” it wondered.

Al-Nusra Front in Lebanon has claimed responsibility for bombings that have targeted Hizbullah strongholds in the Bekaa region of Hermel.

It has also claimed responsibility for rocket attacks fired against those areas.

Hizbullah has been taking part in the fighting alongside the Syrian regime forces against a rebel uprising.

You and your primitive terror party are the last ones to even talk. You got us into this mess in the first place. Are you surprised this report might be true? On May 7th, shia members of the LAF were participating in the attack on Beirut and firing in the air in celebration of your glorious victory over the peaceful residents of Beirut. Now, you are calling for the eradication of arsal and tripoli ! and you have the nerve to call others sectarian.

Utter bs, you should be locked up for criminal slander

your army? LOL you have sub zero credibility to even comment.

Thumb popeye 10 March 2014, 14:24

mowatin iraní; stating facts is not slander. Slander is when you accuse someone out of spite, for example, when you slander the president:

The president should apologize to the entire country, for having turned his back on its dignity for a fat saudi suitcase."

Now, that is SLANDER!

" On May 7th, shia members of the LAF were participating in the attack on Beirut" this is sectarian, a lie and defaming. i repeat, if we could we'd have you extradited from israel and judged here.

stinky israeli want to see our resistance disarmed, and our army divided along sectarian lines. i wonder why..

So are all the lebanese people being held hostage by your terror party not just in Arsal and Tripoli but in all of Lebanon. Can a normal family in Lebanon plan a normal future without having to worry about the next adventure your terror party embarks on be it with Israel, in Syria, Bulgaria, Thailand, Nigeria, Argentine, etc.

Surprise surprise! Some more of renegades who shot two sunni clerics at an army checkpoint recently, and got freed subsequently on the grounds the clerics were armed ! pffffff!!

god bless our army
strange how the same people who are attacking the army even before the Syria war and even since 75 war are the same

Missing beirutbastard00 09 March 2014, 16:56

im sure there is some truth to this, individual members of the army could very well be going to fight in syria. A while back they arrested a tikfiri group in the army. so it wouldnt surprise me to see a lebanese institution not in complete control of its members.

but nusra is only using this as an exuse, knowing that more and more army will be targeted as theyve taken over security in shia areas.

id like to say something tho. there is a general feeling in lebanon that shia criminals are somewhat above the law. this has to end. the law has to be applied to all, equally.

Your "blessed" LAF is a joke. I'm not one to run back to the Civil War to remind you of how the "Army" behaved then. Or on May 7/8th when they stood by and watched Hizthrowup take over the streets of Western Beirut. Or how 1st Lt. pilot Samer Hanna was killed because the State of Hizthrowup didn't know the "LAF" was suppose to fly over their territory. The consensus from notable think tanks across the globe believe that another civil war in your beautiful country would again "Fragment the sectarian makeup of the Lebanese Army." I stand for a peaceful and UNITED Lebanon. I stand for a military that will punish all who break the matter the political affiliation or religious belief. Unfortunately, that is not your current "Army."
May peace be with Lebanon and Israel.

Southern. No. People of Lebanon do NOT enjoy the same treatment.

See, Sunni criminals are put in jail. Christian criminals are put in jail. Shia criminals are covered by Berri, and reasoned with and given jobs in the state to "alleviate their poverty". A lot are NOT put in jail.

You are not living in Lebanon. I am not sectarian- A lot of my friends are shia. And they are the first ones who complain about the impunity vs the shia community.

@cityboy youre right 100%, I didnt in any way mean to say that being shia is linked to criminality. and youre right also that many come from historically lawless land, like the zoaters mqdads shreifs etc...

but im personally speaking about beirut. theres a general feeling that if u belong to a shia or syrian party (amal, HA, or ssnp), you are above the law. people are so tired of these za3ran man. its 2014, its time we form a state already.

This is an idiotic joke, but not funny similar to the idiotic accusations that the Lebanese army was being bribed with the $3 billion Saudi donation.

Right. Hezb is a more advanced terrorist group.

Thumb cedre 09 March 2014, 21:08

joulani never recognized Nusra-Leb, so it could be takfiris, or syrian intelligence, or a mix of both...

Thumb popeye 10 March 2014, 14:10

mowatin; do you realize that when you make completely false and unfounded claims, you lose all credibility?

Missing cedars 09 March 2014, 21:24

Let us be very clear, which Lebanon do we want as Lebanese citizens? clearly some want Lebanon allied to Syria and Iran period. Others to KSA, and the rest of us would like a friendly with respect with ALL neighbors.
We will never have peace as long as we have a door or window in the house open for ingress and egress of militias/arms period.

Missing cedars 09 March 2014, 21:35

This is a big lie from AL-Nusra, the Lebanese Army is not in Syria, case in point we have not seen a single LAF soldier being prayed on.
On the other hand, the Leb institutions do have members planted by the Syrian Moukhabarat during their 30 yrs in Lebanon that are incapable to even read or write a single sentence and misfit/corrupt but loyal to the Baath first then Lebanon.

as for "sources" talking to al arabiya, we all know how reliable they are :)

The question remains, who went in first, and thus, who will come out first, not easy questions to answer, well not yet.
