Hilli Calls on Hizbullah to Reconsider Stance over Syrian Conflict

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Arab League Deputy Secretary General Ahmed bin Hilli described on Friday Hizbullah's involvement in battles in Syria as “dangerous development,” calling on the party to reconsider its stance.

“Hizbullah's involvement in Syria battles complicates the matters,” Hilli said in comments published in As Safir newspaper.

The Arab diplomat called on Hizbullah to “reconsider” its stance and to “join the Lebanese consensus over Syria and not to fuel the strife in the neighboring country.”

The Baabda Declaration was unanimously adopted during a national dialogue session in June 2012. It calls for Lebanon to disassociate itself from regional crises, most notably the one in Syria.

“Hizbullah's involvement in Syria is undermining the role of the resistance and affecting the situation in Lebanon,” Hilli said.

Hizbullah's involvement in Syria has raised fears the conflict could spill over into Lebanon, where deadly clashes between supporters and opponents of the Syrian regime have periodically erupted in the northern city of Tripoli.

Syria has long been a crucial conduit for arms supplied to Hizbullah by Iran. Iran, Syria, Hizbullah and some Palestinian groups view themselves as an axis of "resistance" against Israel and the West.

Hizbullah is believed to have sent at least 1,700 fighters to Qusayr more than a week ago to support the regime's assault on the rebel stronghold. France estimates that 3,000 to 4,000 Hizbullah fighters are operating in Syria.

Hundreds of civilians have reportedly been killed in Qusayr and thousands could be trapped. The United Nations estimates that more than 94,000 people have been killed since the initially peaceful uprising began in March 2011.

As if they will listen. They got their "marching orders" from their boss in QOM and that is all that matters. Any one doubting the devilish agenda of this terror group should also reconsider his/her stance. This is a sectarian criminal group of fanatics.

Anyone being pro regime is against lebanon, Lebanese people and lebanese interests. Any pro regime person should be tried for treason, I recommend judge Madi to start doing what he is paid to do, work on enforcing the law.

To Hilli What about the Arab mercenaries and others in Syria paid for including yourself by your bosses in Arabia and Qatar, you ought to keep your mouth shut. The Arabs history is not an organization you should proud of

Ah yes, a terrorist organization like the Arab League forgetting about the foreign Al Qaeda terrorists crawling all over Syria. Filthy hypocrites and Al Qaeda sympathizers.

If I were the Arabzionist League I, too, would consider Hizbullah's stance in Syria as a dangerous development now that things are taking another dangerous term vis-a-vis the multinational Syrian rebels from the remote provinces of Syria, i.e. Yemen, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon (perhaps the only real remote province), Turkey... seeking freedom in Syria!!! The developments in Syria are very, very, very dangerous indeed.

It seems to me that no matter what the subject discussed is, there is always some idiot who will drag Israel (Zionist) into it.
Here is the perfect example of when a guest becomes a pest.

Phillipo, and why is it that everytime someone does, your ready to come to israel's defence? Is the mossad your father or something? Your a guest on this site and your a pest.

yes sure mowaten.... try the best you can but facts speak for themselves, you are only making a fool day by day by denying the situation.... lebanese will remember people like you :)

against extending the term of parliament, hizbushaitan promised there would be stability.
however, I do not think they will keep this promise as usual, rather, I consider we are already in the middle of the storm.

what amazes me is the stupidity of m8 comments :)
they live so deep in the culture of death that they welcome the conflicts.... unbelievable.
either they are young and have not lived a civil war, or they plain and simple stupid.

just plain and simple stupid!

Mowaten and maroun1 - you have both just proved my point. If you don't agree with someone then simply blame them of being Mossad agents.
Perhaps I should have been, then I would have gotten a good salary every month.
Maroun1 - I am willing to come to anyones defence when I see that they are being wrongly and sometimes even foolishly accused, see my comments on the election process in Lebanon for example.
If you both only want to read one version of events why not go to al-Manar they'll be happy to have your one-sided thoughts. Here on Naharnet they are at least willing to hear all sides.
