DNA Tests Confirm Burned Bodies not that of Asir and Shaker

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Two charred bodies found in the southern city of Sidon in the aftermath of deadly gunbattles are not those of Sheikh Ahmed al-Asir and Fadel Shaker, a onetime prominent singer-turned Salafist, the state commissioner to the military court said Wednesday.

Judge Saqr Saqr confirmed that DNA tests of al-Asir's and Shaker's families revealed that the bodies were neither of the Salafist cleric, nor of Shaker or his brother.

Saqr, who is overseeing the initial investigation carried out by the military intelligence into the fighting between Asir's armed supporters and the army in Abra near Sidon, ordered on Monday the release of nine people who had been arrested at the end of the battles.

Thirty suspects remain in custody, the National News Agency reported Monday.

The fighting, which was sparked late last month when Asir's supporters opened fire on an army checkpoint, left around 18 soldiers and more than 20 gunmen dead.

The gunbattles concentrated in the area of Bilal Bin Rabah Mosque and nearby buildings.

Al-Asir, a 45-year-old cleric who supports the overwhelmingly Sunni rebels fighting to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad, is no where to be found along with Shaker.

Asir teamed up with him when around two years ago he began agitating for Hizbullah to disarm.

Not a mention of the checkpoint massacre of LAF soldiers and officers. The article makes no mention that Assir is a murderer and a traitor to Lebanon ...

The article says Assir is supporting the fighting against Assad. Well he has a peculiar way of fighting Assad by turning the streets of Sidon red with the blood of those who defend Lebanon.

Well you know the salafags and their homo tendencies.

Asir was put there to weaken Future.... il faut toujours voir a qui profite le crime..... now Hezbollah is free to pursue the Syrian Zionists in Homs and Aleppo.

They will never find them...They went to the same destination of Shaker El Absi and others who were planted for a specific mission...

Could it be the same place where the 4 hezb suspects in Hariri assassination (and the one for Harb) are hiding? I always knew it, that Salafis and Hezb collaborate behind the scenes as they both are against civilization.

They are gone and will never be found...Mission accomplished..Planted for a reason and the role is over..

What about the bite marks on the burned bodies, specifically around their hearts? I'm sure they belonged to Assir and Shaker.

God help us...
Asir will reappear with a tenfold vengeance....
and they say civil war is not at the door.
I would suggest we all avoid areas of hizbushaitan concentrations from now on as they will be the target of asir's revenge.

I wonder if Nasrallah is going to charge him rent or let him stay free of charge.

any source? proof? evidence? poor FT..... a very sick mind indeed....

Thumb geha 03 July 2013, 18:44

for once I agree with you. not about the prophecy itself though :)
I have been warning that what is going on will lead to devastating war for a while.
it is about time hizbushaitan realizes that its actions have arisen sunni sentiments in the whole world. the result will be devastation.
it is about time they wake up and back off these actions, and restore moderate sunnis.

Filth Thrower: You are evil indeed. You go to any lengths to defame your opponents thru lies. Go read Naharnet and any other source and you will see the condemnations from the first minute. You are a cheap repulsive creature who spreads confusion and unfounded accusations. Respect yourself.....

They were mustaqbak stronghold but not anymore thanks to your resistance.
Don't you notice how as Mustaqbal gets weaker the radicals get stronger.
Also could you point out the very warm relationship Hezb has with Hamas, Radical Palestinians outside the camps, Nasserites and Jamaa Islameyya in Sidon ...... but it is all for a noble cause SERVING THE KHAMENI.

However, the DNA test confirmed that all Sannis have the genetic mutation known as Sannis Lunaticus Berserki, which probably originated with Moawiya Bin Laden or his son Yazid Bin Laden.
