pflp hezbollah protestInitial investigations have determined that the only forces that possess 122mm Grad rockets that were discovered in Ballouneh in Lebanon’s Kesrouan region on Friday are Hezbullah and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command PFLP-GC informed sources told the Central News Agency (CNA) according to a report by An Nahar newspaper.

Both Hezbollah and Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC) are staunch allies of the Syrian regime of president Bashar Al Assad

An Nahar reported that the investigations are currently focusing on how the rockets and their launch pads were placed in the region and what their target was.

Sources told the daily that the incident was aimed at intimidation and creating confusion in Lebanon.

“The location where the launch pad was stationed makes it hard to determine the target of the rockets,” they added.

The Central News Agency noted that the rockets located in Ballouneh differ from the ones that were fired at Hezbollah stronghold in Beirut’s southern suburbs last May.

It explained that the two rockets that targeted the suburbs were fired in a traditional manner whereas the rockets found at Ballouneh were set to be remotely fired.

One of the 122mm Grad rockets was fired from the Kesrouan region, but the other one failed to take off due to a technical malfunction, the report added.

A strong blast was heard in the early hours of the morning on Friday in the Kesrouan district.

The high-voltage power line in Bsous-Kahale was hit by the rocket launched the Kesrouan district, NNA reported last Friday.
Some reports indicated that Baabda palace was the target of the attack.

The attack came 2 days after Baath Party MP Assem Qanso , a close ally of the Syrian regime accused President Michel Suleiman of high treason and called for his prosecution after the latter filed a memorandum of complaint to the UN concerning Syrian violations of Lebanese sovereignty.

        Is that why Tripoli is ‘taking off’ again today ??? Packs of assholes.
        (Won’t see that ‘news’ for 3 days either …)
        Any ‘soldier’ who desserts the Army to do what Assir wants is not worth being called a soldier and not something any country wants in it’s army.

          The solders are there to do righteous deed , to do what is good and to forbid what is evil. When the government itself are sold or on sale then the Army need to make their own decision as you see how the Syrian Army defected and the Alawites are still there to lick assads butt. Come back to senses . Your logic is right provided the army is serving a independent righteous government and not a lackey

            Well War being the game, I DID think the LAF were finally given the ‘go-ahead’ to actually MAKE peace rather than stand in the middle and beg for peace in ‘political discussion’ with idiots. They were being shot before anyway … like everyone’s favorite targets … why not let them become ‘the military’ that they SHOULD be – Lebanon’s.
            As for ‘righteous’ government … where’s the one that was elected the last time? You can’t blame a government that was never allowed to exist.
            If you must live in a military state, go with the one ‘band of brothers’ that has the state’s name on it.

            Of course, there’s an army in Syria too … but as you say, it seems a few dived out of it when they became sick of the un-military slaughter.

        maybe Assir did but not the presidential palace where President Suleiman have been very critical of Hezbollah and Syrian gov’t. Its always about denial from your side and intimidation of the opposing party. Who called the Shiite man from Al Assad Party where he was protesting at the Iranian embassy? the pictures of these thugs beating him and shooting at him who ran back to Dahia.. Even when there are proof of you guys doing the killing and you still want to instill confusion and doubts. stop your load of crap and every killer will have his day in court of Allah..you may be strong now but was Saddam, Mubarack, Ghaddafi, Hitler and Stallin.. they all pretty much killed or humilated.. the next war Israel will not be so merciful as last time. And this time the world will only cry slowly at our misery until the face of HEzbollah is gone and so will yours you traitor..

            Dateam … night news …when a doctor in Tripoli tells you (m/f/hidden) can’t stomach a dinner tonight because it has been a day of too much blood and dead bodies on the hospital floor, you know the news is a little slow … but then, it always has been – along with truths.
            Body-counts coming soon, I suppose … when reporters feel safe …
            Other friends in ‘the underground’ again …
