Syria’s FSA attacks Hezbollah’s positions in Lebanon

free syrian army firing rocketsA commander of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) said Syrian rebels had started to attack Lebanon’s Hezbollah Feb. 21, less than a day after the FSA chief of staff issued a 48-hour ultimatum warning the militant group to stop shelling territory held by the insurgents.

“We have bombed the territories of Hezbollah in Lebanon and Syria. The Free Syrian Army will continue bombing these positions,” Col. Hisam al-Avvak of the Group of Free Officers, which operates under the umbrella of the FSA, told Anatolia news agency. Al-Avvak also threatened that the FSA would target Hezbollah strongholds in the south of Beirut unless Hezbollah stops its joint operations with the Syrian army forces.

Gen. Selim Idriss, the FSA chief of staff, said on Feb. 20 that Hezbollah had long been taking part in hostilities in Syria, but had gone too far by shelling villages near Qusayr in Homs province from the Bekaa valley in Lebanon.

The commander said the rebels were giving Hezbollah a 48-hour deadline to stop the attacks and “as soon as the ultimatum ends, we will start responding to the sources of fire.” Rebels in the Qusayr area would be backed by FSA fighters “equipped with long-range weapons from other areas,” he said.

The FSA had also asked the Lebanese president and premier to intervene, Idriss said, but the office of Prime Minister Najib Mikati denied any contact with the Syrian rebels.

Hezbollah has repeatedly denied sending fighters into Syria. Its leader, Hassan Nasrallah, acknowledged in October 2012 that party members had fought Syrian rebels but said they were acting as individuals and not under the group’s direction.

Hezbollah has been supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad ever since the uprising began in March 2011, even though 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.

A Lebanese analyst ( whose name was withheld for security reasons) told Yalibnan: ” As a Lebanese Shiite myself , I strongly feel that Hezbollah has become an Embarrassment. Hezbollah was my Hero until the Israelis pulled out from Lebanon in 2000 but ever since then it has been downhill for Hezbollah. I pride myself of being a Lebanese Shiite, but I think Hezbollah’s agenda has ceased to be a Lebanese resistance since 2000. Hezbollah is now a proxy of the Wilayat al Faqih ( the basis of the constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran) which for us as Lebanese Shiites is a step back. Hezbollah is now doing Iran’s dirty work . Look what Hezbollah has allegedly done in Bulgaria, Cyprus, Thailand, Singapore, Kenya, Azerbaijan, India, Georgia , Argentina, Egypt, Bahrain and Iraq. How does this benefit me as a Lebanese Shiite? Hezbollah’s behavior is having a negative impact on all of us as Shiites . We feel this , by the way we are treated wherever we travel.”

He added: As far as the Syrian regime is concerned the writings are on the wall. This regime is bound to fall . Where will this leave us as Shiites if Hezbollah continues to support a failing regime. Unfortunately most people think that if you are a Shiite you are automatically a Hezbollah member, which of course is not the case. Time for Hezbollah to wake up and think Lebanon. This will be better for Hezbollah, better for the Shiites and better for all the Lebanese “.

    ……..Soon 10 countries will form a 10 nation confederacy
    out of which the anti-christ will arise……….their common denominator will
    be their hatred of Israel….and persecution of Christians…..Will they hold
    the world at ransom for their oil?? Ahmadinejad of Iran also proposed forming a
    new group of 10 or 11 countries to work to end the 18-month Syrian civil war.
    The Bible says the leader of this 10 nation confederacy will be the
    anti-christ……….

    Revelation 17:12-14………. 12 “The ten horns which you
    saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive
    authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and
    they will give their power and authority to the beast……….

    Revelation 13:2-3…….2 Now the beast which I saw was like
    a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth
    of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. 3
    And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly
    wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.

    Revelation 13:4……. 4 So they worshiped the dragon who
    gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like
    the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”

    Psalm 83:……..For behold, Your enemies make a
    tumult; And those who hate You have
    lifted up their head. 3 They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And
    consulted together against Your sheltered ones. 4 They have said, “Come, and
    let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered
    no more.” 5 For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a
    confederacy against You: 6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagrites; 7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; 8 Assyria also has joined with them; They have helped the children of Lot………………………………..

        How can that make any sense ten joined but how many in total that is what makes a group, total number and that is not 10. Amazing how people just bla bla for the sake of it.

        • wargame1

          The total is more than ten who came later and more is expected to join the group but the first Ten was the pioneer who formed the EU. I do not certainly affirm that my idea is correct but it is likely.

            Anything is possible yes even peace in the ME, NEVER is what I say as long as the Arabs stay as Arabs. I give one word that works real well, forgiveness , this is the only way to peace. History , the EU started on the 40s with six countries not ten. The use of the euro is what changed things totally .11 founding pioneers as well. So you can keep looking for the ten .

      I suppose for our ‘Bible Interpreters’ It all makes sense now, that the State of Washington in the last election approved this – Gay marriage & Marijuana being legalized on the same day.

      Leviticus 20:13- “If a man lays with another man he should be stoned.”

      We were just interpreting it wrong. :-))

        The Old Covenant was for the Jews only during that time and dispensation under the Law. The New Testament is now offered by God to whosoever will. God still has rules for those under the New Testament. If you want to be a part of His Eternal Household, then you cannot just do what you want. If you don’t know Him, your already under condemnation, so why quote His Word, The Old, or the New………
        …….Romans 3:19……..
        Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
