Raad Says Qusayr Rebels Wanted to 'Attack Resistance from Behind'

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Hizbullah on Tuesday accused the Syrian opposition of seizing control of the Syrian town of Qusayr with the aim of "attacking the resistance from behind its back."

"The thing that is immunizing and strengthening the resistance is the harmony among all the political forces that have embraced the path of resistance, and this is what's bothering the other partners in the country, who have been trying to drive a wedge or stir discord in order to infiltrate through and achieve their plot,” head of Loyalty to Resistance bloc MP Mohammed Raad said.

"The rifle of the resistance is still pointed at the same Israeli enemy, but the enemy has created a new frontier behind our backs, near our Bekaa and North, with the aim of stabbing us in the back, employing a bunch of Takfiri remnants through conspiring with regressive oil countries that have nothing to do with democracy,” Raad added during a memorial service marking one week since the death of Hizbullah fighter Abbas Hallal in Syria.

The Hizbullah official explained that “the mission of the town of Qusayr was to attack the resistance from behind amid the slogans of self-dissociation and noninterference in Syria.”

Raad added: "Hizbullah did not intervene in Syria, we rather intervened in Lebanon to defend Lebanon and its resistance and to protect the country."

"We only point our rifle at any target we believe is allying and conspiring with the Zionist enemy, because our rifle only fires on those who are allied with Israel or conspiring with it," Raad said.

The military support of Hizbullah has helped Syrian regime forces gain the upper hand in the battle for control of Qusayr, a key town for both the regime and the insurgents, where an army assault began last month, amid a Lebanese, regional and international outcry.

Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah had previously justified the group's involvement in Syria by saying they were defending Lebanese-inhabited border villages inside Syria and Shiite holy sites.

But during a May 25 speech marking the 13th anniversary of Israel's military withdrawal from Lebanon, Nasrallah said the Takfiris are the “most prevailing group in the Syrian opposition,” warning against a defeat against them in the ongoing war in Syria.

He said: “If Syria falls in the hands of the Takfiris and the United States, the resistance will become under a siege and Israel will enter Lebanon. If Syria falls, the Palestinian cause will be lost.”

Enough of this bull-shit propaganda...the problem with Hizib is that they are lying to the public. They are taking their supporter inch by inch to where they want by creating fake fears and mixing up everything together all under the American-zionist conspiracy...enough with these lies. Just be straight with your fans and tell them where you are taking them!

Its a shame when the resistance has become more important than Lebanon itself!

I am speachless... Does he beleive in his own words??? It is becoming so obvious that they are compulsively paranoid! The Tafkiris, allies of Israel?? Ahah! When the best ally for Israel all these years has been... Syria! Keeping the Golan quiet, transferring all the mess onto the Lebanon-Israel border. If Syria falls, the Palestinian cause will be lost? Really? Re-writing history is a new job for Raad. Our Bekaa and North... Who is "our"? The Lebanese people? Or just Hezbollah trying to justify its existence? I am so tired of all that! What does they want? A global war to be able to restart from scratch - again?

Ya Raad, Front or Back, may they all die a horrible death ! If they're stupid enough to follow you to war, they don't deserve to live.

Ba3den, stop blaming Israel to cover up for your stupid decisions and mafia organisation of thugs, thieves, drug and weapon dealers, murderers and prostitution network !

Hassan Nassrallah and Hezbollah are the Zionist front of Lebanon and Syria ! One and the same!

Lebanese Republic 1943 - ..
Hezballah 1983 - ..
Lebanon lived for forty years without the Iranian terrorist militia without becoming new Israel 2.0
Nasrallah if I had known the Israeli reaction to the kidnapping I would not have done it. 2006

"We went to Bosnia and Herzegovina. The best young men among us went there. We had camps. Perhaps this is the first time we talk about this issue with this degree of clarity. We fought there and martyrs fell. Whom were we defending? We were defending Sunni Muslims in Bosnia. There are no Shiites in Bosnia." Nasrallah 25 May 2013

Were the Christian Bosnian Serbs killed by the Iranian terrorist militia in Bosnia and Herzegovina planing to "Attack the Resistance from Behind"?
Maybe the Christian Bosnian Serbs were Zionists or Takfiris. No wait the Iranian terrorist militia, Al Qaeda, the United States and the Takfiris were on the same side killing Christians together. OK maybe the Iranian terrorist militia was killing Christian Serbs because if Bosnia and Herzegovina fell, the Palestinian cause will be lost. I lost my globe years ago but I'm pretty sure Palestine was nowhere near Bosnia and Herzegovina unless something changed after the "Velvet Revolution" near by.

What Mr Raad really says is this: "If Qusayr remains under control of the free Syrian army we fear loosing our daily supplies of viagra-weapons that makes us so powerful in Lebanon that we can control whatever we want and continue with the Persification of Lebanon...."

It's funny how you all sound like moderate, objective and partial citizens!! Let be realistic here, do you all prefer the FSA, AL-NUSRA FRONT AND AL-QAEDA OVER HEZBOLLAH?? When did hezbollah eats human organs?? Or behead?? Or kill under the umbrella of Islam while shouting Allahu Akbar?? Hezbollah is doing you and the world a favour by elinating these Takfiri-Salafi thugs!!

do you know why this barbarian ate the soldier's organs...? It is because he found a video in his cell phone filming him raping then murdering a woman in front of her children, then murder the children...that certainly doesn't excuse it, but at least it puts things into perspective. Gather some infor before doing stupid comments.

Anonomous, you give HA too much credit. In 2006, they started the war not to help hamas but because they thought it was a good time to free their prisoners thinking israel would be too busy to start a new front. They wanted to milk out some benefits while others were being bombed, not knowing they too would be bombed.

Every other day one of them comes out with a new spin... they are not there, they are only defending Lebanese in border villages, then defending shrines, then defending the Assad regimen because it is the "backbone of the Axis", defending Lebanon from the Takfiri, Zionist, US, West now they are claiming self defense they are protecting their backside.

Why make up so many story's... you are fighting for Assad because the ayatollah told you to.
