Mikdad clan Claims Kidnapping a Turkish National

Beirut, Lebanon- The military wing of Al- Mikdad clan announced on Wednesday that it has abducted near Beirut a Turkish national of the Soufan family, media reports stated.

This development comes after the military wing of the al Mikdad family which is closely linked to Hezbollah said it had abducted at least 20 Syrian rebels and threatened to kidnap Qatari, Saudi and Turkish nationals to swap them for their missing kin.

LBC reported that one of the kidnapped Syrian rebels is a captain at the Free Syrian army and another is an officer, who has been wounded.

Voice of Lebanon 93.8 reported that Soufan is not an ordinary Turkish national but a high ranking diplomat at the Turkish embassy, but an informed security source later told Voice of Lebanon 100.5 that according to their records there is no diplomat at the Turkish embassy with the Soufan name.

    what an unfortunate turnk de of events for those people in Lebanon. Now a mafia family i the mullahs in s controlling foreign policy with the tacit approval of hezbollah. The only safe place in the middke east is in Israel. Although for how long is anybody’s guess if Netanyahu and Barak launch a pre emptive strike on Iran which will then mmake the middle east a really interesting place. Getting rid of the mullahs in Iran would be a blessing to the entire Mid-East and would conversely help in taking on the hezbollah dregs and their supporters who have enslaved Lebanon

    Really who would believe that “beit Mikded byihkimou hal Iiblid”. After this joke on the TV that can make you laugh and cry with this hashish clan Mikded or the  family or Zaaran , the army should send a 1000 paratroops and beat the crap out of them and put them all in jail. With all respect the Shiite are not made to govern , they made Lebanon a joke , they have no experience in governing ,no tradition behind it, the Shiite word come from shiaa in Arabic and than means multiple clans and Mikded is one of them, how you could raise a generation of good Shiite when the poor Shiite women spend 20 years of her life getting pregnant !!! unfortunately  this country Byifarekh Zaaran kil  ma met wahed byiji wahed ,and the decent people they don’t have the courage of the Zaaran to face them
