Nusra Front Vows Fierce Battle with Hizbullah in Lebanon, Promises Immense Surprises

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The emir of the al-Qaida affiliate al-Nusra Front, Abu Mohammed al-Joulani, announced that the battle with Hizbullah in Lebanon didn't begin yet, vowing surprises along the Lebanese-Syrian border.

“Our brothers in al-Qalamoun region have many surprises... The real battle in Lebanon didn't start yet,” al-Joulani said in an audio message distributed online on Tuesday night.

He pointed out that Hizbullah will suffer greatly, saying: “Maybe (Hizbullah's) secretary general Hassan Nasrallah will regret during the upcoming days the harm he inflicted against Sunnis in Syria.”

“We were forced to move the battle into Lebanon, in particular, Hizbullah's stronghold in the South and Beirut's southern suburbs and to target its positions,” the emir said.

Al-Joulani said that al-Nusra Front fighters sent many signals to Hizbullah to indicate the risks of its intervention in the ongoing war in Syria and its support to Bashar Assad's regime.

Nasrallah told supporters on Tuesday, who were gathered in Dahiyeh to mark the day of Ashura, that Sunni radicals, known as takfiris, "have no future".

"These takfiris will be defeated in all areas and countries, and we will feel honored that we played a role in their defeat," he said by video link.

Beirut's southern suburbs -- a Hizbullah stronghold -- have seen a string of deadly attacks, many of them claimed by jihadists, since the group started sending fighters to Syria three years ago.

"We want to win the final victory... so that the region does not fall into the hands of beheaders... and rapists," Nasrallah said.

Hizbullah sent fighters to Syria to back President Assad's forces against rebels trying to remove him from power. The armed intervention in Syria earned the group the enmity of Syria's predominantly Sunni rebels. Assad is a member of the Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shiite Islam.

Over the past year, Syrian troops and Hizbullah fighters have captured most of the towns and villages in Syria's mountainous Qalamoun region along the Lebanon border, depriving the rebels of residential areas where they can stay during the winter.

However, Hizbullah's involvement in Syria had drawn the ire of many in Lebanon.

s long as these extremist sunni terrorists and these extremist shia terrorists fight among each other and kill each other, then Lebanon is winning.

indeed, we're stuck between ISIS/nusra and mustaqbal, who both have allegiances to foreign "caliphs", "kings" and "emirs"

Missing peace 05 November 2014, 16:23

sure mooowaten: it is mustaqbal that publicly peldeged allegiance to the islamic revolution in 1989, never had hezbollah pledged allegiance to a foreign country...

Thumb _mowaten_ 05 November 2014, 17:30

hahahahah yea peace, they dont need to pledge allegiance to saudi, they ARE saudi

Missing peace 05 November 2014, 17:34

sure but at least they did not openly pledged allegiance to iran.... at least they are not imposing the saudi way of life in Lebanon unlike your hezbis imposing the iranian way...

so they are NO better than your iranian militia following your logic; if i were you i would be quiet as you defend a party that pledged allegiance to iran and you criticize mustaqbal!!
why criticize mustaqbal while hezbis do the same?
that is what makes you NOT credible poor mooowaten....

a bit lost in your logic ma hek?

Thumb _mowaten_ 05 November 2014, 18:37

what "iranian way" is being imposed on you? your claims and propaganda lines are so empty and repetitive it's boring

Thumb _mowaten_ 05 November 2014, 18:41

you keep hallucinating, imagining stuff and spinning that invisible "iranian menace" so much you've lost touch with reality. are you not seeing what is going on in tripoli? remember the attacks on cafes during ramadan? the library that got burnt? the banning of alcohol ads? tu te fourres le doigt dans l'oeil jusqu'au coude mon pauvre ami.

Missing peace 05 November 2014, 18:52

sure mooowaten.... just look in hezbi areas: the iranian way of living... ninja women evreywhere, ashura like in tehran, iranian chiism imposed on chia whereas before it was a lebanese chiism, alcohol banned in hezbi areas, pledging allegiance to IRAN, no opposition to nasrallah tolerated elected FOR LIFE when before there were elections, NO RESPECT of the state: they only decide of peace and war without asking the gvt....

mustaqbal NEVER asked for what is happening in tripoli or elsewhere, they are against extremism in case you do not know...while hezbollah clerly threatened of death anyone wanting to disarm it, army included! has mustaqbal threatened of death anyone? no....

and keep your french insults to shine in society in dahiye, you do not impress me, anti lebanese guy....

Thumb _mowaten_ 06 November 2014, 10:57

lol you are indeed completely disconnected from reality. as far as i know in iran they dont do the hardcore/bloody ashoura rituals, and they dont either in dahiyeh, actually hezbollah discourages it. the one place they do it is in nabatiyeh and they've been doing it for ages. and the problem here is not even about that, whatever they do (whether you or I like it or not) they do to themselves, they are not imposing on anyone else. if you cant see the difference between that and aggressively imposing rules on others like the banning of alcohol, forbidding of eating during ramadan and so forth, then i have nothing more to say to you

Dear HK and GK,

I am probably with your party in all things. But I will never believe the lie of hizbullah involvement had drawn the ire of many in leb.
For wisdom and logic sake please think it over and do not repeat "slogan" mentioned here and there ... those "drawn" would have been drawn and found any excuse to make this mess: unfortunately our beloved leb is eaten by bosses from both sides: look at the bigger picture of the region: there is a plan that the small leb won't be a decision maker in it: it may be a bottleneck for a certain time but not more than that... please do not hide the fact and truth will prevale very soon.
Please let's stop lying to oneselves! that is a shame that the country of engineers and millionaires of the world cannot have one patriotic red lines and common strategy to move forward like any other country Having diversity of ruling will help the people to choose by experience ... Oh Lord, i have too much to say... that is so sad....

Ya chad your misjudgment has taken over your vision.

if HA lays down its weapons we would have a temporary moment of weakness towards Nosra that we will surmount.
But on the medium term, we will get back our sovereignty, we will root out corruption, we will monitor our borders.
And on the long term, we will become a first world country with GDP per capita equivalent to a southern european nation, with a rule of law.

Mr. Al Joulani, or whatever you wish to call yourself, don't wait anymore to produce your so-called surprise in Lebanon, feel free, do it now. This may surprise you, that in Lebanon, we as a people are capable of closing ranks and leave our differences aside. That surprise you're talking about will hit you guys very hard in the face because the kick you will get in your face will leave you toothless and even worse, you'll get a clean dry shave like you've never had in your life. You see the WALL, or rather the wall of fear, it's been broken now. The LAF have gotten you by the nook and cranny, so has HA, so have the Peshmerga and the PKK, now you're beginning to get to grips with what it's like to move backwards, your intentional culture of fear is over, live with the consequences.

Thumb al.finique 05 November 2014, 14:33

bro, good one bro. You know why? because If the army continues this way and unabated, within a few months Lebanon will start feeling like a real country. Since 1948, this country of ours has been nothing but a hornets nests of the worst the world had to dispose of, but that now the big cleanup has started, then there should be no stopping it anymore. In 1973 when the army was pounding the LPO terrorists and on the verge of breaking the PLO's back, the then Suleiamn Frangieh got bribed by the Saudis and stopped the army's onslaught. That demoralized the army and civil war came soon after in 1975, so this time, there's no president but a tough army general, let the army continue till all the land is liberated. Then thereafter, all the areas still under the control of Hezbollah should also be handed over to the army plus all the weapons, period.
