Hizbullah Downplays al-Qalamoun Casulaties, Says Only Three Fighters Killed

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Hizbullah stated on Friday that the number of fighters who were killed in Syria's al-Qalamoun front were only three, denying media reports claiming otherwise.

“Some Lebanese and Arab media reports continue to broadcast false reports on the number of Hizbullah fighters killed in the last few days in al-Qalamoun front claiming that the number has totaled 40,” the statement said.

“Hizbullah emphasizes that these reports are totally untrue and baseless. Only three fighters have been killed since the confrontations began. Their honorable families have been notified,” it added.

Some media outlets said that more than 40 of Hizbullah fighters had died in fighting against Islamic militants near the border with Lebanon this week.

However, al-Nusra Front said in statement via Twitter later during the day: “A large number of Hizbullah and Syrian army members were killed and others wounded in fighting with al-Fatah al-Qalamoun army in Assal al-Wared.

“After Hizbullah infiltrated the area from the Lebanese side, the Mujahedin made a tactical withdrawal from Assal al-Wared to repel the infiltration," added the statement.

“Hizbullah is exploiting Lebanon's land to sneak behind our fighters. We warn the Lebanese, Hizbullah is trying to drag them into a war schemed by Iran."

Hizbullah has been fighting alongside Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces against predominantly Sunni rebels and militants seeking to topple him.

Fighting has intensified in the past week in the mountainous al-Qalamoun region across the border from Lebanon, where militants from the Islamic State group and the al-Qaida-affiliated Nusra Front are entrenched.

Hizbullah and Syrian government troops took control on Thursday of strategic heights in the Syrian region of al-Qalamoun that abuts Lebanon's eastern border.

The control of the area on the outskirts of Assal al-Wared came following heavy clashes with al-Nusra Front.

You have no idea what is good for Lebanon, and you don't care either. You're a iranian loving muppet and only their interests count for you.

اعترف قائد الحرس الثوري الإيراني، اللواء محمد علي جعفري، بأن تدخلات إيران في اليمن وسوريا تأتي في إطار توسع خارطة الهلال الشيعي في المنطقة.
وبحسب موقع محطة "برس تي في" الإخبارية الإيرانية، فقد اعتبر جعفري أن ما أسماه "نظام الهيمنة الغربي" بات يخشى من توسع الهلال الشيعي في المنطقة، والذي يجمع ويوحد المسلمين في إيران وسوريا واليمن والعراق ولبنان"، على حد قوله.

لتدخل في سوريا
أما حول التدخل الإيراني في سوريا ودعم نظام الأسد بالمال والسلاح والقوات العسكرية ضد ثورة الشعب السوري، قال جعفري "إن إيران نظمت 100 ألف من القوات الشعبية المسلحة المؤيدة للنظام السوري وللثورة الإسلامية الإيرانية ضد المعارضة السورية، وذلك في إطار جبهة المقاومة"، حسب زعمه، وعلى الرغم من ذلك ظل النظام الإيراني ينفي تدخله في الشأن السوري، مؤكداً أنه يقدم الاستشارة فقط لنظام بشار الأسد.

التدخل في اليمن
ووفقا لوكالة أنباء "فارس"، فقد أقر جعفري خلال كلمته، بوجود تدخل إيراني في اليمن، مشددا على أن هذا التدخل "غير مباشر"، بقوله: يعلم الأعداء بأن لإيران تأثيرا في اليمن من دون أن تقوم بتدخل مباشر فيه، حيث ينتفض الشعب اليمني بنفسه ويواصل طريق الثورة الإسلامية والشهداء والشعب الإيراني العظيم ويقتدي بهم".

التدخل في العراق
وحول التدخل الايراني في العراق، قال قائد الحرس الثوري الايراني، أن " تسليح 100 ألف من الشباب الثوري والمؤمن في قوات "الحشد الشعبي" التي قاتلت واوجدت رصيدا عظيما للدفاع عن الاسلام والسيادة الاسلامية والثورة الايرانية في المنطقة".

All of you guys should swear allegiance to Lebanon. The country is facing tremendous challenges and danger deal with that rather than mutually blame M8 or M14. You guys should get over that

The problem is that the extremist hizbzushaitan is dragging Lebanon once more towards a showdown with other extremists.

these murderers should understand that not a single Lebanese agrees with them, and we all hope for both parties to kill each other till extinction.

The incredible credible flamethrower says: " i actually cross-read many sources ", hehehe!
the archive says:

unlike you, i care nothing of what goes on in the media. i source my opinions from the street and day to day life, not from the media cesspits you drink from."

Flamethrower is always true to himself: a consistent sectarian.

Thumb EagleDawn 08 May 2015, 12:38

why every time you people can't successfully refute @FT, you accuse him of being sectarian? I've been reading this forum for years and I've never managed to know what is @FT's religion. sometimes I think he's christian, sometimes, Huthi. so I stopped guessing. It's people like you, who are sectarian, FT is pure Huthi.

One wonders if General Aoun, who has recently joined forces with the "Evil Axis" through his alliance with Hezbollah and Syria's agents in Lebanon, is the same

man who enthusiastically and staunchly sponsored, advocated and worked hard with the Lebanese lobbyists in the US to prepare, promote and then pass the "Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2003". An Act that stipulates: "To halt Syrian support for terrorism, end its occupation of Lebanon, stop its development of weapons of mass destruction, cease its illegal importation of Iraqi oil and illegal shipments of weapons and other military items to Iraq, and by so doing hold Syria accountable for the serious international security problems it has caused in the Middle East, and for other purposes."


and M8ers still see bashar as a good man LOLLLLLL

Excerpt from General Aoun's Free Patriotic Movement Party Parliamentary 2005 electoral platform,
"N Resolution 1559 and the 'Taef Accord' both stipulate that all militias (in Lebanon) must be disarmed. This matter raises the paradox of Hezbollah's military existence. Regardless of different opinions on Hezbollah's ideological choices and its relations with Syria, that is suspicious in its intentions towards Lebanon, Hezbollah's military activities were seen in the UN Resolutions frame as resistance acts against occupation until the day Israel withdraw from Lebanon's southern region (May 2000).

Missing peace 08 May 2015, 22:32

After the Israeli withdrawal, legitimacy for Hezbollah' military operations dissipated. Meanwhile, since then, it created a crisis on national and international levels. This status put Lebanon in a confrontation with the international law, while at the same time exerted a threat to the national unity as it indicates that one group Monopolizes Lebanon's national decision making process."

Quotation from Aoun's (via the phone) meeting with the Free Patriotic Movement's school students third annual conference on April 5/2003. Journalist Katia Srour moderated the dialogue.

*Question by one of the students: The US considers Hezbollah a terrorist organization. Hezbollah is the son of our country. What will be our position?

"Aoun's answer: "I had previously invited Hezbollah to a solution. I am not willing to assume the results for the policies it follows and for its external ties. I

advised them to abandon the military work and return a political party, for then we congratulated them on liberating Lebanese land. But when Hezbollah wants to stand outside the Lebanese framework for other objectives, we cannot bear the results of its policies. Then I cannot engage in a dialogue with Hezbollah while it is carrying the rifle.

and brainwashed FPMers still claim that aoun never changed his stances... how idiots they are...
