Hizbullah slams Al-Arabiya 'lies' linking group to drugs trade


Hizbullah’s media relations department has lashed out at the Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya satellite television for “fabricating lies and false accusations” that link the Iran-backed group to the “manufacturing and sale of narcotics.”

“This is aimed at insulting Hizbullah and tarnishing the image of resistance movements in the eyes of the public opinion,” the department said in a statement.

“All of this is in the service of the Israeli enemy and the humiliating schemes of normalizing ties with it, and to deviate attention from the damning facts about the involvement of top Saudi princes and officials in the trade of drugs and captagon pills,” the department added.

Al-Arabiya has reported that one of several drug smugglers recently killed by Jordanian forces on Syria’s border was “closely linked” to Hizbullah.

It also said that “Hizbullah-linked groups” and the Syrian army’s Fourth Division led by Maher al-Assad had recently “intensified drugs transportation operations from Lebanon to areas in Daraa and Sweida with the aim of smuggling them into Jordan and other Arab countries.”

The only thing preventing liberating now Lebanon and the Shia community from the Iranian occupation is for FPM MPs to join patriot MPs and vote for sovereignty, border demarcation, independence and disarming militias and refugee camps. Otherwise, FPM MPs are the one preventing Lebanon from getting out of Hell where they had brought the country. Their chance to be regarded as patriots not traitors. Hope they see the light and not keep living in darkness as Useful Idiots under Basij control.

"After all, the Saudis gave funds to Annahar for years."

It is well established internationally that the hezb is well versed in the drug trade and money laundering. Nothing new under the sun. That’s where the saying comes: Thy protesteth too much.

I have to agree with Hezbollah and I understand their outrage. Hezbollah is not linked to the drugs trade, Hezbollah IS the drug trade.. it's a Zen thing.
