40 more Hezbollah fighters killed in Syria, including a commander

hezbollah funeralForty Hezbollah fighters were killed Thursday in an ambush in the Syrian flashpoint town of Rankous, near the Lebanese border, according to a report by Lebanese news website NOW

A Free Syrian Army member who identified himself as Abu Omar Shatout reportedly told NOW that the ambush was carried out in farmland on the outskirts of the town.

The report added that a Hezbollah commander who was identified as Abu Abbas, who was responsible for coordination between the party’s troops and Iraqi Shiite militias operating in Syria, was one of the dead.

This development comes just five days after Twenty-nine Hezbollah fighters were reported killed in the the same town, during clashes with Syrian opposition forces.

Tens of thousands of Hezbollah fighters are actively trying to save the regime of the embattled president Bashar al Assad despite the Baabda accord which calls for distancing Lebanon from the Syrian conflict.

    And the death toll keeps rising and rising.

    First and last time i come here, this paper is a joke with BS reporting and news…lol, what a joke.

    • arzatna1

      I agree with you this is not the place for you if you are a Hezbollah member or sympathizer , specially after learning about so many deaths that you were not aware of
      Perhaps you should go back to your leaders and tell them to pull out of Syria and come back home to Lebanon. Who in in his right mind will defend a dictator like Assad?

        Who in his right mind will defend be-headers?

        • Farq2

          Plenty on this site unfortunately. Most call them moderate rebels however.

          • MekensehParty

            What there are a lot on this site is supporters of terrorists bombers who ravaged Lebanon with car bombs since the early 2000 and are now crying foul that the other side is using the exact same technics they used.

            Hold on, let me grab my violin.

            Farqrallah, cry me a river – we don’t need to open up the topic of Assad’s torture chambers – I assume you defend the use of his Nazi-class torture facilities?

          • Farq2

            Your an Idiot, For some reason you think I really give a flying F about Assad.

          • AkhouManUki

            Enough to support your boys in yellow sacrificing thousands of lived to protect that war criminal. I recall how excited you were when he received 89.97% of the vote – you felt vindicated.

          • Farq2

            I was tying to proving a point to you, clown. Now go get that violin out of you know where and start playing it.

          • AkhouManUki

            I think the stress of watching your homeboys getting gunned down is taking it’s toll on your sanity Sayyed F. A little violin might balance you out.

            Also, you might want to stop alluding to ramming things up butts, it’s starting to paint a not so flattering picture of what you spend a lot of your time doing. Not judging, to each his/her own.

          • Farq2

            Yep, keep believing the media Akhou. I guess one does need a bit of hope after all. As for the ramming things up butts, I’m not the one who’s got Mekenseh’s head up his ass. You go son.

          • AkhouManUki

            But you like to call them scum?

        • MekensehParty

          Maybe the “resistance axis” doesn’t behead, but they sure love to dismember people, prime ministers and presidents.

    • AkhouManUki

      Bring em out, bring em out! Here come the boys in yellow, ready to spread propaganda to all! Hezbollah look like they are dropping like flies – are you getting nervous?

    “Body bags? Body bags?” Shouts Abu Hassan in the streets of Dahyieh

    May they burn in hell

      • AkhouManUki

        Come on now, let’s keep it clean!

        • Farq2

          That was keeping it clean.

        • MekensehParty

          Dude he’s from Dahyieh
          Clean is a word they used once in 2006 when the Israelis leveled their building on top of their open sewer streets. For the first time it smelled something other than shit there…

          • Farq2

            Wow your so original. Good to see that degree in stupidity is paying of. With a bit of dedication and perseverance, you might finally get your masters. Good luck with that bayde.

          • AkhouManUki

            Ouf… Ouf… Didn’t seen like you addressed his points. Not sure what Mekenseh’s education has to do with the comment, but maybe you can elaborate?

          • MekensehParty

            You don’t need a degree in anything to recognize the smell of shit.
            You do need deep brainwashing though to smell shit and think it’s roses.

          • AkhouManUki

            I think that deep down inside Farq2slick wants to fit in, he’s had enough of Gezbollah’s ventures in foreign lands, and ultimately want Lebanon to do better. I don’t think poor economic or living conditions should dictate what the value of your opinion is. I want every Lebanese to be equal, this divisive mentality has been a cancer that we need to clean for decades. We need to take back our country!

    • 5thDrawer

      Along with all the ‘Australian’ ISIS people in Iraq.

    It just goes to show … even in days of adversity good things can still happen!

  • wargame1

    If the Lebanese want to cleanse Hezbushaitan from Lebanon then dont stop them from going to Syria. Thats the one way ticket for Hezbushitan. They will have to go to Iraq too and the sunni tribal resistance will shove them under Iraqi soil. Bad news for the Lebanese coffin factory.

    Syria vs Ukraine – the fake and the real difference

    Mercenaries in the illuminati payroll attack nearly ALL the population while the theater US v Russia is staged as background.

    The first role is actively supporting the mercenary army. The second has the passive role, while pretending to support the attacked civilians.

    The “difference” in the US v Russia theater:

    – Syria: Russia alias the fake Putin has the active and the US the passive role;

    – Ukraine: it’s the other way round, or in other words “Putin” has the passive role.

    The real difference:

    – in Syria the freedom fighters are aware that “Putin” is on the same side as the nazi mercenaries.

    – In the Ukraine the freedom fighters are not only NOT aware that “Putin” is on the same side as the nazi mercenaries but they still believe that “Putin” is on their side.
