Report: Three Hizbullah Members Killed in Nusra Front Attack on Border Town

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Three Hizbullah members have been killed on Wednesday in an attack by the Islamist al-Nusra Front in a border town between Lebanon and Syria, the Turkish state-run Anadolu agency reported.

"The attack targeted a Hizbullah patrol in (the Bekaa border town of) Zeeta, killing three of the party's members,” informed sources told Anadolu.

The sources revealed: “The party had an agreement with the Free Syria Army to neutralize these towns from the ongoing Syrian conflict”. “But Hizbullah has since the attack readied to deploy members in eight frontier villages”.

Three Lebanese Shiites have been killed in fighting in Syria, a Hizbullah official said Sunday, as the Syrian opposition accused the Lebanese group of intervening on the side of the regime.

He said they were acting in "self-defense,” without specifying if they were Hizbullah members.

The Syrian opposition has long accused the group of helping the Syrian leadership crack down on the uprising — a claim the group has repeatedly denied.

Hizbullah has stood by Syrian President Bashar Assad since the uprising began in March 2011, even after the group supported revolts in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and Bahrain. The group says it is backing the Syrian regime because of its support for the anti-Israel resistance movements in Lebanon and Palestine and because it is willing to implement political reforms.

"Hizbullah has stood by Syrian President Bashar Assad since the uprising began in March 2011, even after the group supported revolts in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and Bahrain."

Where is the line about "Saudi Arabia supportedm funded, and armed Syrian and foreign fighters against the Syrian government, even after it condemned protests in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen, Jordan, Morocco, and Saudi Arabia, and also refused to arm Hamas fighters against Israeli air raids."?

If we're lucky, the Salafis and Hezbies will kill each other and leave everybody else alone.

hezbollah are nusra are the same.... let them neutralise eachother for a safer middle east.

no lack of knowledge... seems you do not have the capacity to analyze hezbis as a fierce supporter you are... wahabbis, salafis or hezbis are the same islamists extremists. both use the same propaganda, both are terrorists...
sunnis use la ilaha ilallah as a slogan hezbis use the coran in a fist....
no difference only for the hezbis brainwashed islamists....

I do not support Hezbollah but I certainly will not support anyone attacking Lebanon. We must get the hizb to stop and we must stand in the face of any outside aggressor. What a predicament nasrallah is putting Lebanon in again!
Of course we all know where he will be hiding when and if a war breaks out. Keep calling him a hero and looking up to him you mindless sheep.

This is exactly sadly what we have been warning against all along, where are the miscalculations of hizbala taking us..? what is the interest of the Lebanese people in all this? slowly but surely hizbala converted to the PLO of the 70s and will do its community what Hitler did the Germans. another sad things..given the assassination of all the moderates in the suni community the soil is more than ripe for extremism

Foreign killers killing foreign killers . Good. That is justice . In Syria meanwhile Typhoid fever is present now , Cholera be in Spring. Will Qatar and Saudi Arabia or Turkey or Jordan, NATO or IRAN or Lebanon or the USA or the United Nations send antibiotics. I seriously doubt it. Only Harari can save them.

So Saad, are you admitting that they have criminal sexual intentions and seek to rape handsome men such as myself? The only way these radical jihadists are going to ever find someone to sleep with is if they commit suicide and kill infidels.

Hope there will be many more of those mercenaries eradicated!

you are making the assumption that people consider HA lebanese--and many consider them mercenaries. Now where were you and your cohorts when syrians were shelling lebanese towns and not a word came out of you guys for the loss of life.

Hypocrisy can be such a curse sometimes--learn to live with it or learn how not to be one.

Missing samiam 21 February 2013, 15:10

ooh, what a burn--

No need to see what side of the fence you are since you on because you failed to address the question and have demonstrated how big of a hypocrite you really are. MEOW

and an fyi, the definition of mercenary is "A professional soldier hired for service in a foreign army."--whose paying the salaries of these HA "operatives"--is it the Lebanese government or some other party like IRAN.
