“Syrian Rebels too Weak to Target Hezbollah”

The situation in Syria has escalated lately since terror groups are trying to counter any negotiations that could lead to a peaceful solution to the ongoing conflict, strategic expert Ameen Hutait told RT Arabic website.

In a new turn in the nearly two-year-old civil war, Syrian rebels warned the Lebanese Hezbollah to stop the shelling of Free Syrian Army-controlled territories in Syria or face consequences. The group posted its statement on its page on a popular social networking service and gave Hezbollah a 48-hour deadline to stop the attacks.

However, Beirut-based analyst Ameen Hutait believed these threats are not likely to be fulfilled and are rather linked to the events in neighboring Lebanon.

On the intense fighting in Damascus, bombing and casualties, Hutait stressed that “events in Damascus reflect clearly how desperate the terror groups are as they saw the peaceful solution to the crisis – which is led mainly by Russia, which is keen to achieve a peaceful solution – has started to move forward.”

“This is because these terrorists will not have a place in any future peaceful settlement,” he added.

“That’s why they (militant opposition groups) have carried out these desperate attacks on the capital Damascus, hoping to stop any possible negotiations that might lead to a peaceful solution for the crisis,” Hutait noted.

“Also they aimed at punishing the Syrian people for their steadfastness and for their rejection of any form of fighting and terrorism,” he further pointed out.

Answering a question about how serious are the threats by the so-called Free Syrian Army to target Hezbollah sites, Hutait stated that these threats are not linked at all to the Syrian crisis. Rather, “they are linked to the current events in Lebanon such as the elections law.” Continue reading
