Syria rebels capture Christian town of Maalula

Christ the Redeemer on the hillside in MaaloulaSyrian rebels, including jihadist groups, have captured the historic Christian town of Maalula north of Damascus, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Rebels assaulted the town by rolling explosive-filled tyres down the hills onto regime forces and were able to reach the city centre yesterday after three days of intense fighting, with clashes still raging in the surrounding areas.

The picturesque town is considered a symbol of the ancient Christian presence in Syria, and its 5,000 pre-war residents are among the few in the world who still speak Aramaic, the language of Jesus Christ.

The fighting came as the regime has been battling to gain control of a string of nearby towns and villages along the strategic Damascus-Homs highway north of the capital.

The Observatory, a Britain-based monitoring group that relies on activists and other sources on the ground, said several groups, including Al-Nusra Front, an Al-Qaeda affiliate, had taken part in the capture of the town.

The rebels abducted 12 Syrian and Lebanese Orthodox nuns from their convent after moving into the town, Vatican Radio reported, citing Mario Zenari, the nuncio (ambassador) of the Holy See in Syria.

Syrian state news agency SANA had earlier said the rebels had entered the Orthodox Mar Takla convent, in the middle of the city, which had previously been controlled by the army.

The convent is home to some 40 nuns and orphans, some of the few residents of the town who remained after rebels first entered in September, prompting fierce fighting with the army.

    Haasan Nasrullah Dead or Alive?

    An unconfirmed posting on Facebook by a Syrian rebel group claims that Hezbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah was injured in a bomb blast that killed 22 members of his group on Sunday. Syrian rebel forces claim that they have succeeded in injuring Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, a Lebanese website reported this morning.

    According to the report, a commander of the Free Syrian Army announced that members of Jabhat Al-Nusra succeeded in the early morning hours in blowing up the headquarters where Nasrallah lives in Bint Jbeil, Lebanon. Well, time will tell but surely Nasrullah is a target and this will happen sooner or later

    • Peaceforleb

      So let me get this straight, Israel who is a super power in the ME and with all their advance technology have been unsuccessful all these years in the attempt to assassinate Nasrallah. However these little rats Jabhat El NOSTRILLS have come close. Oh that’s right, sorry Wargame I forgot, Hezbollah and Israel are in bed together. Now I get it. I get that you are one poor soul in urgent need of some help.

        I find it strange that yaLibnan calls Syrian Army fighting to liberate Maaloula
        innocent Nuns an orphans “the Regime forces” and the canibal beheaders
        Rats, “Syrian rebels”. Wow!

        Oh yes.. below, it’s after removing the Cross & burning the furnishing, Armenian
        church in Raqqa is now an ISIS dawa center, how brave are Levant Christians,
        when Kurds were being killed, Kurds from the North came to help.

        Well, the brave Kurds will survive.. Blablaba Babel-Tower “Libnan”, will continue
        to “eventualy” disappeare from the Levant in favor of the Wahabi & the Zionists.

            So now they rebel Real, are they. What’s funny is how people are quick to call Hezbollah terrorists, however these animals in Syria are called Rebels. So organ eating, head chopping and woman and children killers are called rebels. Ah well real, each to their own.

            I would go on about HA, but i dont feel like wasting both of our times. Im just going to say that not all the rebels are like that. Thats why they are split and not organized.

          • cook

            That is false propaganda. It’s comparing British Mandate for Palestine (no such country as palestine existed, just the same as Syria, Israel, Jordan etc), with 1949 armistice lines between Israel and JORDAN, and then Oslo Accords (where Arafat himself signed that Israel is entitled to 60% of the West Bank and settlement expansion).

          • 5thDrawer

            Still doesn’t look like 40% …. couldn’t draw a straight line from Jordan to the coast ??? Worse than the French … 😉

          • cook

            Again, every single map in that picture tells a lie. From the first one that claims that palestine was a country, to the third which calls Jordanian controlled territory “Palestine”, to the last which doesnt take into account that the PA has civil control over certain areas under the Israeli military.

            Jordan Valley should remain under military control for security reasons.

            Zionists are the kings of propaganda.
            US Business Marqueting said Zionists propaganda is so sucssesfull, that they
            will copy it.

            Zionists motto “Palestine a land without people for a people without land”…,
            was just a foot-hold in the Middle East.
            Zionists Motto is: From the Euphraetus to the Tigriss” .
            Russian Revisionist Zeev Jabotinsky hijacked true Sion Religion, into a
            Fascist Zionist Movement. Rothschilde became the movement president, Churchill sold Palestine- wich was NOT his – to sell, to Rothschild.

            I have a picture dating from WW1 of my family living room in Haifa on Mount Carmel, there’s an English lady visiting my great grand mother who’s sitting
            at the piano, her lady friend’s little dog on her lap, i have a picture of her aunt dating from late 1880thies ..still Victorian fashion..

            Palestine was in Syria as Lebanon, they had Syrian passports for traveling,
            but in ME they called eah other Lebanese, Palestinian, Syrian, Egyptian Turk.. Jordan was the name of a River the East of Jordan River, Palestinian Territories.

            The English helped Wahabi (most extremist branch of Islam) conquer Arabia
            900 years old moderate Hashemites family..because of greedy futur oil deals with British Petroleum (Rothschild). The name of Hashemite Kingdom is stilI
            “East of the Jordan River: (Shark el Ordon) in Arabic, wich the English had
            to give them to move ot Arabia. Since then the Saudi Medieval Wahabi have
            dragged any honor or principal the Arabs had, though the mud.

            They send their criminal inmates on death roll to Syria, to have a ball.
            What country on Earth would do such imomral things withouth punishment? Israel !
            What you write up ther are same, word by word Israel Zionist school Curriculum, writen all over Al Jazeera
            They teach invented history, Zionist are brainwashed cant’t sustain a discussion instead they give hell to anyone who know history or call them anti-Semitic.

            Israel stole “Invented People’s” Hummus, Falafel ..Dabka..a traditional dance
            in Palestine, Lebanon, Syriam, adapting it to Israel…and now their Keffieh!!

            Whats the propaganda “The Original Semitic Keffieh”, as if they were the
            only Semitic people on Earth. Palestinians are Semitic.
            In Europe during 2000 years many converted to Judaisme or mixed marriages, false Jews were placed in the land of Original Semitic People that goes to the Stone-Age. Outrageous

            You are the king of spam.

            The only country in the region was the Ottoman Empire, the whole point behind the British Mandate was to CREATE an Arab state, STUPID.

            Good luck convincing me that 100,000 Arabs in 1890 suddenly turned into 10 million today. Just like Jews, majority of Arabs are immigrants from surrounding countries, especially because of the good economy. The Jews however admit this, you Arabs however dont admit the fact that many “palestinians” have Jordanian and Egyptian names, and most cant trace their palestinian roots more than 100-150 years.

          • Rose Rohana

            From Mesopotamia to Syria, to Palestine, to Lebanon, (Jordan did not exist yet), people spoke in different accents, till today we recognize the persons origins as soon as they open their mouths, by their own particular Biladi
            (my Country in Arabic).

            – “The only country in the region was the Ottoman Empire”
            the Ottoman Empire was not a Country STUPID, their Empire was all over Europe and the Balkans, their country was Turkey.

            What British did with their mandate, didn’t change the indigenus people culture

            and traditions on the Grownd. British were foreigner and they gave “sold” what
            was NOT theirs, INCREDIBLE but had no power to change the people.
            Zionists have no history, their history is where they came from, they used Sion religion, the Bible fairytales as History, Bible is not a history book.

            Show a map of “Palestine” as an Arab state, STUPID. Name me a single palestinian leader before Arafat, tell me what was palestine’s capital, what money did they use, what was their borders, what flag did they have (PLO flag that you see today is the Jordanian flag without its star, and was invented in 1988).

            Yes, lets talk about how in 1948 about 850,000 Jews were kicked out of Arabic countries (without there being a war for them to leave by choice) and billions of dollars worth of property lost, and yet you people only talk about the suffering of Arabs. Pathetic.

            The Druze I know defend Israel like pure zionists. And no, no Arab person in Israel calls himself a “palestinian”, they are all Israeli Arabs. Ask any Christian Arab and he will say he is Israeli, and speaks Hebrew.

          • Peaceforleb

            Yes 5th, one video that was supported by the lot of them. As for the other video’s, I have never said that both sides haven’t committed atrocities. However I am convinced that the FSA terrorist are the ones who are committing the worst atrocities of all.

          • 5thDrawer

            I’d go with ‘Real’ on that … you need to define which segment of the obviously-now-divided FSA are the ‘terrorists’, and then how many of those have come from some country other than Syria, because it isn’t the ones who began the peaceful demonstrations and then found they had to defend themselves, while stating what they wanted AS free Syrians, who have been fattening up the ‘rebel’ ranks after the first few months.
            It’s all the other jerks who think they should be in on ‘the action’ for their own purposes and tacky-feary stupidity, or whatever.
            And of course, the same goes for the Syrians who make up Assad’s Shabiha Support. And Perhaps Hezzy’s are not as bad as the guys who tortured kids (and others) to death – slowly – piece by piece. Maybe not all Syrians are either.
            Sure can’t say it about the 10 million who left the damned place, which is now filled with every bad actor we can think of from anywhere, thanks to Assad and his monster ego which couldn’t just let go of the ‘power’ ring.
            Which is just about the same thing happening in Tripoli (and a few other spots in Lebanon) at the moment – just as obviously. Define the blockheads there too. They all have their own little gangs doing their best to terrorize the populace – who have a hard time now trusting ‘police’ or even the army … and THAT comes from ‘the tops’ who have failed to create the country they say they want and most of the people would love to have.
            Fortunately for Lebanon, for the moment, there’s more than Assad at the top – although those people have been targets too – of bombs – by terrorists. And little atrocities are committed every day – sniping at anyone on a street is a favourite way of at least ONE ‘side’, although how a 5-yr old kid – Salafi or otherwise – can be a danger to them I have no idea – except maybe it would grow up to be like them.
            Slicing a heart out of a dead animal may be a little gross and the idiot apologized for the war-frenzied moment later … it’s not the same as a ritual of slicing off a live head … or peeling skin off a 14-yr-old in a prison torture chamber … or as ‘terror-producing’ as shooting a baby in it’s mother’s arms while she walks a street near a crowd asking for a vote on freedom.
            I won’t even mention the shabiha-type guys on motor-cycles swinging iron bars to break bones in Iran … without mentioning the arrested were thrown into a cell for a while instead of a hospital.
            Define the terrorist.

But here in Syria we see the same Hezbushaitan Iran Assad regime combined with direct Russian and Chinese backing fighting against the poorly armed rebel nearly 3 years and we dont see any such victory in Six days!!! Sure Iran and Israel are cooperating with each other throughout the history. Now please tell us the strategy hezbushaitan implemented against Israel to win the war. Was it a picnic war? But in Syria there will be no Picnic I am afraid. hehehehe

    Haasan Nasrullah Dead or Alive?

    An unconfirmed posting on Facebook by a Syrian rebel group claims that Hezbullah politburo chief Hassan Nasrallah was injured in a bomb blast that killed 22 members of his group on Sunday. Syrian rebel forces claim that they have succeeded in injuring Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, a Lebanese website reported this morning.

    According to the report, a commander of the Free Syrian Army announced that members of Jabhat Al-Nusra succeeded in the early morning hours in blowing up the headquarters where Nasrallah lives in Bint Jbeil, Lebanon. Well, time will tell but surely Nasrullah is a target and this will happen sooner or later

    • Peaceforleb

      So let me get this straight, Israel who is a super power in the ME and with all their advance technology have been unsuccessful all these years in the attempt to assassinate Nasrallah. However these little rats Jabhat El NOSTRILLS have come close. Oh that’s right, sorry Wargame I forgot, Hezbollah and Israel are in bed together. Now I get it. I get that you are one poor soul in urgent need of some help.

        I find it strange that yaLibnan calls Syrian Army fighting to liberate Maaloula
        innocent Nuns an orphans “the Regime forces” and the canibal beheaders
        Rats, “Syrian rebels”. Wow!

        Oh yes.. below, it’s after removing the Cross & burning the furnishing, Armenian
        church in Raqqa is now an ISIS dawa center, how brave are Levant Christians,
        when Kurds were being killed, Kurds from the North came to help.

        Well, the brave Kurds will survive.. Blablaba Babel-Tower “Libnan”, will continue
        to “eventualy” disappeare from the Levant in favor of the Wahabi & the Zionists.

            So now they rebel Real, are they. What’s funny is how people are quick to call Hezbollah terrorists, however these animals in Syria are called Rebels. So organ eating, head chopping and woman and children killers are called rebels. Ah well real, each to their own.

          • Heraclitus

            That is false propaganda. It’s comparing British Mandate for Palestine (no such country as palestine existed, just the same as Syria, Israel, Jordan etc), with 1949 armistice lines between Israel and Jordan, and then Oslo Accords.

            Again, every single map in that picture tells a lie. From the first one that claims that palestine was a country, to the third which calls Jordanian controlled territory “Palestine”, to the last which doesnt take into account that the PA has civil control over certain areas under the Israeli military.

            Jordan Valley should remain under military control for security reasons.

            Zionists are the kings of propaganda.
            US Business Marqueting said Zionists propaganda is so sucssesfull, that they
            will copy it.

            Zionists motto “Palestine a land without people for a people without land”…,
            was just a foot-hold in the Middle East.
            Zionists Motto is: From the Euphraetus to the Tigriss” .
            Russian Revisionist Zeev Jabotinsky hijacked true Sion Religion, into a
            Fascist Zionist Movement. Rothschilde became the movement president, Churchill sold Palestine- wich was NOT his – to sell, to Rothschild.

            I have a picture dating from WW1 of my family living room in Haifa on Mount Carmel, there’s an English lady visiting my great grand mother who’s sitting
            at the piano, her lady friend’s little dog on her lap, i have a picture of her aunt dating from late 1880thies ..still Victorian fashion..

            Palestine was in Syria as Lebanon, they had Syrian passports for traveling,
            but in ME they called eah other Lebanese, Palestinian, Syrian, Egyptian Turk.. Jordan was the name of a River the East of Jordan River, Palestinian Territories.

            The English helped Wahabi (most extremist branch of Islam) conquer Arabia
            900 years old moderate Hashemites family..because of greedy futur oil deals with British Petroleum (Rothschild). The name of Hashemite Kingdom is stilI
            “East of the Jordan River: (Shark el Ordon) in Arabic, wich the English had
            to give whe hashemites moved put ot Arabia. Since, Saudi Medieval Wahabi
            has dragged any honor or pricipal Abrabs had, into the mud.

            They send their criminal inmates on death roll to Syria, to have a ball.
            What country on Earth would do such imomral things withouth punishment? Israel !

            You are the king of spam.

            The only country in the region was the Ottoman Empire, the whole point behind the British Mandate was to CREATE an Arab state, STUPID.

            Good luck convincing me that 100,000 Arabs in 1890 suddenly turned into 10 million today. Just like Jews, majority of Arabs are immigrants from surrounding countries, especially because of the good economy. The Jews however admit this, you Arabs however dont admit the fact that many “palestinians” have Jordanian and Egyptian names, and most cant trace their palestinian roots more than 100-150 years.

          • Hind Abyad

            From Mesopotamia to Syria, to Palestine, to Lebanon, (Jordan did not exist yet), people spoke in different accents, till today we recognize the persons origins as soon as they open their mouths, by their own particular Biladi
            (my Country in Arabic).

            – “The only country in the region was the Ottoman Empire”
            the Ottoman Empire was not a Country STUPID, their Empire was all over Europe and the Balkans, their country was Turkey.

            What British did with their mandate, didn’t change the indigenus people culture

            and traditions on the Grownd. British were foreigner and they gave “sold” what
            was NOT theirs, INCREDIBLE but had no power to change the people.
            Zionists have no history, their history is where they came from, they used Sion religion, the Bible fairytales as History, Bible is not a history book.

            Palestinan Christians have no choice have they? You keep the 1% of what was 23% in Palestine before 1948. In 1947-49, Zionists bulldozed Christian villages
            as well as Moslem villages.

          • Heraclitus

            Yes, lets talk about how in 1948 about 850,000 Jews were kicked out of Arabic countries (without there being a war for them to leave by choice) and billions of dollars worth of property lost, and yet you people only talk about the suffering of Arabs. Pathetic.

            The Druze I know defend Israel like pure zionists. And no, no Arab person in Israel calls himself a “palestinian”, they are all Israeli Arabs. Ask any Christian Arab and he will say he is Israeli, and speaks Hebrew.

          • Peaceforleb

            Yes 5th, one video that was supported by the lot of them. As for the other video’s, I have never said that both sides haven’t committed atrocities. However I am convinced that the FSA terrorist are the ones who are committing the worst atrocities of all.

          • 5thDrawer

            I’d go with ‘Real’ on that … you need to define which segment of the obviously-now-divided FSA are the ‘terrorists’, and then how many of those have come from some country other than Syria, because it isn’t the ones who began the peaceful demonstrations and then found they had to defend themselves, while stating what they wanted AS free Syrians, who have been fattening up the ‘rebel’ ranks after the first few months.
            It’s all the other jerks who think they should be in on ‘the action’ for their own purposes and tacky-feary stupidity, or whatever.
            And of course, the same goes for the Syrians who make up Assad’s Shabiha Support. And Perhaps Hezzy’s are not as bad as the guys who tortured kids (and others) to death – slowly – piece by piece. Maybe not all Syrians are either.
            Sure can’t say it about the 10 million who left the damned place, which is now filled with every bad actor we can think of from anywhere, thanks to Assad and his monster ego which couldn’t just let go of the ‘power’ ring.
            Which is just about the same thing happening in Tripoli (and a few other spots in Lebanon) at the moment – just as obviously. Define the blockheads there too. They all have their own little gangs doing their best to terrorize the populace – who have a hard time now trusting ‘police’ or even the army … and THAT comes from ‘the tops’ who have failed to create the country they say they want and most of the people would love to have.
            Fortunately for Lebanon, for the moment, there’s more than Assad at the top – although those people have been targets too – of bombs – by terrorists. And little atrocities are committed every day – sniping at anyone on a street is a favourite way of at least ONE ‘side’, although how a 5-yr old kid – Salafi or otherwise – can be a danger to them I have no idea – except maybe it would grow up to be like them.
            Slicing a heart out of a dead animal may be a little gross and the idiot apologized for the war-frenzied moment later … it’s not the same as a ritual of slicing off a live head … or peeling skin off a 14-yr-old in a prison torture chamber … or as ‘terror-producing’ as shooting a baby in it’s mother’s arms while she walks a street near a crowd asking for a vote on freedom.
            I won’t even mention the shabiha-type guys on motor-cycles swinging iron bars to break bones in Iran … without mentioning the arrested were thrown into a cell for a while instead of a hospital.
            Define the terrorist.
