‘Saudi claims, sign of political failure’


Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah says the Saudi Arabia’s claims over the presence of Iranian and Hezbollah troops in Syria is a clear sign of Riyadh’s failed policies in Syria scenario.

“Saudi Arabia claims that Hezbollah and the Iranian troops have occupied Syria. This is while the number of these troops in Syria are few in number and they have been present in Syria since 1982 and these ‘few dozens’ could not be able to occupy Syria,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech.

Nasrallah has also strongly denied the Lebanese resistance group had received chemical weapons from Syria.

“This accusation is truly laughable,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech. “We understand the dimensions and background of these accusations, and these have dangerous consequences for Lebanon.”

“We decisively and conclusively deny these accusations which have absolutely no basis in truth,” he added.

“The U.S. defense secretary warned that chemical weapons might be transferred to Hezbollah and on the next day the Syrian Coalition claimed that the Syrian government has delivered chemical arms to Hezbollah and some “smart” officials claimed that we have received a ton of chemical agents and this is a laughable accusation,” Nasrallah said.

Members of so-called opposition group of Syrian National Coalition had allegedly accused Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government of transferring chemical weapons to Hezbollah to escape inspection.

A U.S.-led plan to hit targets in Syria over Damascus’s alleged use of chemical weapons against civilians was put on hold earlier this month after Damascus agreed to a Russian-U.S. deal to destroy its chemical arms stockpile.

Referring to recent bomb blasts in southern Beirut, Nasrallah said foreign backed militants in Syria were behind Beirut bombings in which at least 27 people killed on August 15 and more than 50 wounded on July 9.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Nasrallah hailed army deployment in Beirut bastion and urged local residents to cooperate.

Army troops and security forces began entering the area in the afternoon, taking over checkpoints set up by Hezbollah resistance group after two car bombings in the southern suburbs.

“We welcome this step and greatly appreciate this national decision taken by state officials,” Nasrallah said.

“We hope that the state and its official carry out their national and legal duties towards all of Lebanon’s regions,” he added.

He called on residents of the group’s stronghold, and those passing through it, to show “cooperation and respect” for the security forces and their measures.

“All the details were passed on to the relevant state authorities, which must take the necessary measures, especially against the culprits who are inside Lebanon,” Nasrallah added.

Following the bombings, around 1,200 Lebanese troops and security forces began deploying on Monday in the mainly Shiite southern suburbs.

Nasrallah to Assange: Hezbollah talked to Syria opposition; we want dialogue, US & Israel want civil war

Nasrallah to Assange: Hezbollah talked to Syria opposition; we want dialogue, US & Israel want civil war

Hezbollah urged the Syrian opposition to engage in dialogue with Assad’s regime, but they refused. Hezbollah leader Sayyid Nasrallah confirmed this in his first interview in 6 years, the world premiere of Julian Assange’s ‘The World Tomorrow’ on RT.

Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah told Assange that Hezbollah supports Syrian president Bashar al-Assad as Syria supported resistance in Lebanon and “hasn’t backed down in the face of Israeli and American pressure.” 

Nasrallah, a freedom fighter to millions though a terrorist to the US, Israel, Canada and the Netherlands, says Assad’s regime “served the Palestinian cause very well.”

This is why Hezbollah supported the so-called “Arab Spring” in Tunisia, Yemen, Egypt and elsewhere, but when it came to Syria, Hezbollah urged the opposition to engage in dialog with President Bashar al-Assad.

“This is the first time I say this – We contacted […] the opposition to encourage them and to facilitate the process of dialogue with the regime. But they rejected dialogue,” he revealed. “Right from the beginning we have had a regime that is willing to undergo reforms and prepared for dialogue. On the other side you have an opposition which is not prepared for dialogue and it is not prepared to accept reforms. All it wants is to bring down the regime. This is a problem.” Continue reading

CIA Used Awkar Embassy to Spy on Hezbollah

CIA agents meeting at fast-food restaurant

In a blow to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Hezbollah unveiled on Friday unveiled that the agency has been using the United States embassy in Awkar as a venue to spy on the Islamic Resistance.

During “Hadith Sa’aa” program on al-Manar TV, the party broadcast a report on the issue.

According to the report, the CIA had a team of 10 officers, including women, who were assigned to recruit Lebanese spies tasked with gathering information on Hezbollah’s arms depots, officials and Mujahedeen as well as the addresses of their residences.

“The CIA officers were active in recruiting agents from various segments of the Lebanese society: government employees, security and military personnel, religious, banking and academic figures,” the report said.
The report also talked about the chief of the CIA station in Lebanon, Daniel Patrick Mcfeely, who was born in 1966 and replaced the former chief, Louis Kahi who quit his job as the CIA chief in Lebanon in 2009.

The 10 officers, registered as diplomats at the U.S. Embassy, served as CIA agents for three years in Lebanon, the report said.

While recruitment of agents took place inside the embassy building, the report added that meetings with them were held in fast-food restaurants, MacDonald’s, Pizza Hut and Starbucks.

The report unveiled that during July war, the agency worked to monitor the resistance’s activity and provide the Israeli intelligence with all field information. The CIA had also linked the spies it was directing to the Israeli Mossad agency.

The report came after former and current U.S. officials told the Associated Press last month that Hezbollah has partially unraveled the CIA’s spy network in Lebanon, severely damaging the intelligence agency’s ability to gather vital information on the party.

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah also boasted in June that the party had unmasked at least two CIA spies who had been trying to infiltrate the ranks of the organization.

MP Hasan Fadlallah

Also during the program on al-Manar TV, Hezbollah Member of Parliament, Hasan Fadlallah, praided the resounded results that the resistance had achieved during what he called the security war that the party was waging against the US  and the Israeli intelligence agencies.

“The priorities of the American and Israeli intelligence in Lebanon are to target and strike the resistance”, MP Fadlallah said adding that Sayyed Nasrallah was a permanent target”of these intelligence services.

The MP also called for implementing the law on punishing spies working for Israel and foreign countries, assuring that any information gathered by the CIA would be sent directly to the Israelis.

He said that any information gathered by the CIA agents would be sent to the Israelis. Fadlallah called for implementing the law on punishing spies working for Israel and foreign countries.

Spies outed, CIA suffers in Lebanon

[Editor’s note: CounterPsyOps does not share the views of the authors when they use the word “Terrorist organization” to qualify Hezbollah. Indeed, we consider Hezbollah as Resistance. By reblogging this article, we only inted to inform people on the failures of CIA & Mossad in Lebanon and Iran. Which in our opinion, is a very good news due to the geo-political situation in the region]

By Adam GoldmanMatt Apuzzo

The CIA’s operations in Lebanon have been badly damaged after Hezbollah identified and captured a number of U.S. spies recently, current and former U.S. officials told The Associated Press. The intelligence debacle is particularly troubling because the CIA saw it coming.

Hezbollah’s longtime leader, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, boasted on television in June that he had rooted out at least two CIA spies who had infiltrated the ranks of Hezbollah, which the U.S. considers a terrorist group closely allied with Iran. Though the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon officially denied the accusation, current and former officials concede that it happened and the damage has spread even further.

In recent months, CIA officials have secretly been scrambling to protect their remaining spies – foreign assets or agents working for the agency – before Hezbollah can find them.

To be sure, some deaths are to be expected in shadowy spy wars. It’s an extremely risky business Continue reading
