Syria: Al-Qusayr and the Hezbollah

The line of reports from Al-Qusayr remains the same as yesterday, and today we are almost able to say, that the “battle” is pretty close to its end.

Meanwhile, such reports of the presents of fighters of the Lebanese Tayyar Al-Mustaqbal (Future Movement) in al-Qusayr are interesting:

“Province of Homs. The cleanup operation against those armed gangs and groups, who are entrenched in the neighborhoods, continues. Currently, the main forces of the surviving terrorists still remain in the northern districts, where also the airport Ad-Dabaa, occupied by them, is located; it seems they apparently intend to use it for their escape from the encirclement.

In the course of the battles from today[21/05/2013 – author], a group of Lebanese fighters was destroyed by Syrian Army members, the group belonged to the Al-Mustaqbal, led by Saad Hariri; as well as a terrorist unit, consisting of 20 men, under the led of the field commander Wrtan al-Zkhuri from the al-Nusra-Front (Dschabhat al-Nusra).

Once again, a group of armed men was tracked down and liquidated at the border to Lebanon, while the gunmen tried to break through the blockade around the city and to help the encircled terrorists.” (ANNA-News)

Both Salafi and Israeli sources, and with the later, the “world community”, hardly get any air while they are getting loudly worked up (het up / excited) that Hezbollah takes part around Al-Qusayr. They modestly ignore the reasons for this, respectively they rant about an “alliance with the dictator”.

The Lebanese Hariri units are the reason. Hariri controls the comfortable and wide swath from the Lebanese Tripoli up to the Syrian border, which was set up by the sponsors of the aggression against Syria.

Foreign terrorists (especially North-African), tons of weapons, and ammunition reach Syria through this corridor. The Al-Mustaqbal will know how to feed themselves from the arsenals, which are passing by. Of course, the safe passage costs something.

Ultimately, Hezbollah is nothing else doing in this scenario than what israel is doing against Hezbollah – they are trying to prevent the rearmament of the Hariri units. Which are not arming themselves against israel, but against a much more uncomfortable enemy in the inland.

That there are Lebanese terrorists groups in Syria for a long time, this does not fit into the world picture which is jointly drawn by Israel and the Salafists (Salafis). So, without further ado, this gets suppressed without hesitation, and therefore, the half-truth looks similiar to a dangerous lie. Continue reading

Main al-Nusra Front commander killed in Qusayr clashes

Syrian troops celebrate as they take control of the village of Haydariyah, some 7 km outside al-Qusayr on May 20, 2013.

The main commander of the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front has been reportedly killed in clashes with the Syrian army in the western city of al-Qusayr.

According to Syria’s national television, top al-Nusra Front commander identified as Abu Omar was killed in al-Qusayr on Tuesday as clashes between Syrian troops and foreign-backed militants in the border town entered their third day.

The Syrian army says it is now in control of more than 70 percent of the strategic city, which connects the capital city of Damascus to the Mediterranean port of Tartous.

Intense fighting is reported to be still under way in some parts of al-Qusayr, about 30 km southwest of Homs, with the Syrian army making advances on terrorist groups fighting against the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

According to Syria’s official news agency, SANA, scores of militants were killed in clashes with government forces on Tuesday. Syrian troops also defused several explosive devices in the city.

Syrian troops entered al-Qusayr from several directions on May 19 after weeks of clashes with militants. Syrian sources say over 100 militants have been killed in the military operation to clear al-Qusayr of militants.

On Monday, Syrian army confiscated an Israeli military vehicle used by foreign-backed militants in al-Qusayr. A number of military uniforms as well as wiretapping and jamming equipment were found in the vehicle.
