Hezbollah preparing for internal confrontation, report

hezbollah in black paradeHezbollah has given orders for the “general mobilization” of its fighters in Lebanon and the reactivation of the Resistance Brigades, a paramilitary group loyal to the Shiite party, NOW quoted Kuwaiti daily As-Seyassah as reporting onThursday.

“Hezbollah’s decision to announce the general mobilization is an indication that it is preparing a certain plan that it would implement inside Lebanon, and also probably along the Syrian-Lebanese border,” the As-Seyassah quoted sources as saying.

“The party took the decision recently without making it public, following the attacks which have targeted it as a result of its participation in the Syrian war,” the As-Seyassah sources also said.

While pointing out that Hezbollah had only once previously announced the general mobilization of its fighters, in 1996 during the Israeli military operation of “Grapes of Wrath,” the sources added that the Shiite group “was not discounting the possibility of an all-out battle in Arsal, as the upcoming battle in Yabroud in Syria could lead to the transfer of thousands of Jihadi fighters to Arsal [in North Lebanon].”

The report also voiced concern of a possible “snowball” effect, whereby Lebanese and Palestinian groups in North and South Lebanon, as well as Beirut, would move against Hezbollah in the context of a wider Sunni-Shiite confrontation.

“That is why [Hezbollah] ordered the reactivation of the work of the Resistance Brigades, so it can be available in any potential internal confrontation.”

“The [Shiite] party is on the verge of declaring war on any Lebanese group connected to the Jihadi groups in Syria,” the sources added.

After Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah warned that groups in Qalamoun have been dispatching explosive-laden cars to Lebanon, a car bomb detonated near a Hezbollah position outside the town of Labwe, in the Beqaa Valley, in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The bomb detonated after a checkpoint manned by Hezbollah members intercepted the car, before opening fire on it, Lebanon’s state National News Agency reported.

The blast occurred to the east of Syria’s Qalamoun border region, where Bashar al-Assad regime forces and Hezbollah fighters have battled Syrian rebels since mid-November.

Shiite-populated areas across Lebanon have been the target of terror attacks since Hezbollah declared it was fighting on the side of the Syrian regime in May.

Three car bomb attacks have targeted southern Beirut in recent months, while a number of IED attacks have occurred in Lebanon’s Beqaa Valley.

    • nagy_michael2

      Yes he will deny it of course..

      • The real lebanese

    Whats the armies name again LAF or IAF because they seem to do only whats best for iranian interest and not the lebanese.

    • Maborlz Ez-Hari

      You keep picking on the helpless LAF as though they can do anything about HA. The whole of the Syria is no match for HA, how can you have a dig at your countries only legitimate armed force?

      • Reasonableman

        the whole point its not to have a crack at the LAF, its to try to figure out why they exist and obviously since they are so helpless you should also note there existance is hopeless. Not the soldiers themself, the actual “existance” of an armed force in the name of “lebanon” .

        Call a spade a spade bro we know who is controlling lebanon.
        If they cant do nothing about HA then somebody will and the sunnis have, this is why HA are running around like headless chickens trying to preserve their existance whilst using lebanon as its scapegoat.

        • libnan1

          Yes we know controls Lebanon, not you.

        • Maborlz Ez-Hari

          Habibi, if the attacks against the Shiite groups continue then you can rest assured that H.A will take full control of Lebanon and with an iron fist it will show no mercy to anyone who stands in its way. Sad yes but we need to sort it out somehow and approaching it under a sunni banner is not going to be successful. On the other hand if it is approached under the united peoples of Lebanon the chances of success increases. Your confidence in your self is exaggerated but good luck.

          • Reasonableman

            Theres a line, lebanon put hope in the LAF for far too long you will find that there are many sunni soldiers in the LAF.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            And what’s wrong with that? Dont give up hope and I wish the army is one day representing a healthy mix of every Lebanese identity. Yallah if your in sydney head down to the beach and forget about the crap for a day.

            Far too hot to be stuck at work… 2 more days and then 3 weeks of fishing 😀 inshaalah.
            Are you an aussie too lol?

          • Peaceforleb

            Which are mostly good honest men who are caught up in this whole Sunni and Shiite crap. You will also find there many Shiites in the LAF who want no part in wanting to kill fellow Lebanese irrespective of what religion they are.

      • libnan1

        Sunni leaders were instrumental in destroying the LAF back in seventies when the PLO was in Lebanon, now they want the army to help them create a salafi state. Not in their dreams.

        • Reasonableman

          Forget the religons for a second, why would anybody who felt equal in lebanon want to destroy that “source” that is exertting its equalness in the lands.

          Quit lieing to yourself because of the fake reality you live with which is called fear. Somebody will do something about HA if its not the LAF if its not the “sunnis” it will be something else.

          • libnan1

            Sunnis were more than equal, Shiites were not equal. Lebanon was controlled by Elite Christians and elite Sunnis, not all Christians were elite as you might assume. Our family was poorer than many Sunni families. It took Pier Gemayel to extend electricity to the south over the objections of the Sunni prime minster and the speaker Kamal (I don’t remember his name) who is Shiite.

          • libnan1

            Reason, with great respect Sunni never do anything. Look at the history and will give a glimpse of the future. As far as Sunnis in the LAF, yeah there are plenty and they will leave the army in no time as they did with Sami Khateeb. They sided with the Syrians if you remember, you leadership have long ways to go in order to become equal partners in any given country.

    First of all, be careful when sourcing these Kuwaiti rags. They claimed Hizballah was negotiating with the Obongo administration of America not too long ago, a totally preposterous assertion that was actually taken seriously in much of the global press.

    Hizballah does not want Lebanon to burn, but if the takfiris will make their bed they will surely lie in it.

    • libnan1

      Takfiris will burn anything and everything if we let them do it. NOT

    • nagy_michael2

      And where were hezzbollah when the Takfiris were killing and slaughtering lebanese soldiers in Nahr Al bared. they warned the Army as the camp was RED LINE. or do you use the army for your own purposes as they did in Saida and currently in tripoli. how is that possible that Eid is responsible for the bombing in tripoli and yet he is loose and Hezzbollah is supporting him. I hope you and the takfiris burn in hell because you both hate lebanon and we don’t need either kind..
