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.
