Hizbullah, Syrian Army Take Control of New Hilltop in Qalamoun

Hizbullah backed by the forces of Syrian President Bashar Assad allegedly captured Saturday a new position in al-Qalamoun battle.

Fighters reportedly seized Sadr al-Bustan hilltop, inflicting casualties among the ranks of jihadists, Hizbullah's mouthpiece al-Manar said.

The report said that several militants fled the area after it was taken by Hizbullah and the Syrian Forces.

Al-Nusra Front-affiliate Jaish al-Fatah announced that a Hizbullah member, who was killed in Qalamoun, was buried in the area.

The group shared via its Twitter account a picture of Abbas Hassan Yassine's corpse, his driving license and a neck chain indicating that he was a member of Hizbullah.

Yassine's funeral procession was reportedly held last week in his hometown in the Bekaa Valley.

In the past two weeks, Hizbullah says it has secured around a third of the Qalamoun region, on both the Lebanese and Syrian sides of the porous border.

The area of roughly 1,000 square kilometers is a landscape of imposing hillsides riddled with caves, and open valleys full of scrub and wildflowers.

The fate of Qalamoun is particularly important for Hizbullah, which has long defended its intervention in Syria alongside President Bashar Assad's troops as key to the security of Lebanon.

Hizbullah cites that fear of militants (from the Islamic State group and al-Qaida-affiliate al-Nusra Front) sweeping through Shiite and Christian villages in diverse Lebanon as one of the main reasons for their involvement in Syria.

Some observers however fear the Qalamoun offensive could prompt Islamist militants to launch attacks in Shiite areas of Lebanon itself, including Beirut's southern suburbs.

The IS and Nusra Front have infiltrated Lebanon in the past, and last August briefly overran the northeastern border town of Arsal, taking with them several soldiers and policemen hostage. Four of whom have been executed.

Destroy them all as they slaughtered us.
Don't stop yallah brothers, light of God upon you all, inshallah.
Defeat means the death of us all anyway, so it is no option. Victory or death indeed.

Labayka ya Zeinab.

This is the second time the shia takfiris liberated this hill top, in another few months they will try to liberate it again, jokes over, it seems the only places the shia takfiris & Assad can control are the Lebanese border & areas around homs to Damascus, each month the land they control is getting more & more narrow.
Tell me , what do the shia call a Muslim if they delay the Calipha Of Ali or say Abu Bakar deserved to be the first Calipha? I will give you a hint, it starts with “K”!

It is pretty ironic they consider all sunnis Kakirs yet use the term takfiri on others

Curse of Omar: the Sunni name that signs a death warrant

IT’s a dangerous name to have in Baghdad at the moment: Omar.

At least eight men with the name Omar have been found dead around the Iraqi capital during the past week as death squads have reappeared.

Salafi coward, why did you have to make a whole new character to write these words? Sure if you want to talk about Islam, let's do that.

It's clearly known that you Yazid followers and Ibn Taymiyah lovers are doing the same job as they did back then, killing off Ahlul Bayt a.s and destroying their followers.

That hilltop was never in the hands of the Resistance, you takfiris always had a little enclave, now that is dissappearing and you are all in panic. Even with so many numbers of you from all the world, you still didn't manage to break the Resistance.

What did you cowards ever do to save Palestine? They are muslim sunni, and you did nothing to liberate Al Quds. You are only good at fighting muslims but never Zionist, because you are in their payroll.

The true venom comes out of the shia takfiris when they are confronted with their own scriptures, you have been flogging the F**K out of the takfiri word taking advantage of people lack of knowledge. Tell me, how does it feel when your mates in the Badar Brigade ethnically cleanse & rape sunnis for 7 years in Baghdad only to have it come back & blow up in their face ?

Mystic- What did Assad & Iran ever do for palestine? they barked, let them send their 80 rockets.
But even then, this is the silly shia takfiri logic Assad is responsible for 300,000 thousand deaths in 3 years because he wont leave his chair.
Israel is responsible for 20, thousand in 30 years.

Whose the bigger enemy?

Mystic - Yazid is dead. If anyone resemble him, it is Assad. So stop this nonsense.

Mystic - Have you been watching the news the last couple of months. I understand fighting for one's own life or to defend one's own country. But only a psychopath would go to war under the banner of a woman or a man who died 1400 years ago or shout 'Labayka ya Zeinab'

The ahlulbayt (which includes the wives of the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam) have nothing to do with the shia takfiris, shia extremists, shia liars. Islam is innocent of shiasm. Trying to compare Yazid to ibn taymiyah who tried to save your sect from entering jahannam? Shame on you. Where is the 1000 year old mehdi by the way? Still hiding because his shia arent loyal enough? When the shia are off taqiyah, their ugly side come up. Take a look at Muslim terrorists, Christian terrorists, hindu terrorists and other terrorists, they show their hatred straight up whereas shia terrorists portray themselves as saints but nobody falls for it except the shia and communists and other such ignorants. Shiism and zionism has so much in common. www.anti-majos.com

You're actually right. Ebola is taking control of almost deserted areas in order to gain support and moral. They have not fought the parts of Qalamoun where the islamists are well implanted.
So a big bravo to Ebola for "conquering" a few deserted hilltops... the battle has not started yet... may you both annihilate each other!

Syrian dissidents to form new coalition at Cairo meet. Saudi Arabia, a key backer of Syria's opposition, also wants to host a separate meeting in June or July of different Syrian political and military opposition groups, except jihadis, to prepare for a post Assad era. This is good news for Lebanon is both Assad and Jihadists are bad news.

It seems that KSA is not championing the Sunni Jihadists, Iran on the other hand is all about championing the Shiite Jihadists (aka HA, Mahdi brigade, etc.).
