An Israeli airstrike on the Syrian city of Quneitra near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights killed six fighters of Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah, including a commander and the son of assassinated senior commander Imad Mughniyeh, as well as an Iranian general.

“The Israeli enemy’s helicopters fired missiles at a group of Hezbollah fighters who were inspecting the town of Mazraat al-Amal in the Syrian Quneitra region,” a Hezbollah statement, made public on TV channel Al-Manar’s website, read.

by Nour Samaha, Al-Jazeera English

The mood was sombre as mourners gathered in Beirut’s southern suburbs to pay their respects to Jihad Mughniyeh, one of the six Hezbollah fighters killed in an alleged Israeli air strike in Syria.

Thousands of people, including many Hezbollah supporters, marched behind the coffin draped in Hezbollah’s yellow flag on Monday, beating their chests in unison as confetti was showered from the surrounding balconies.

Chants of “Death to Israel!” and “Death to America!” punctuated the air and shots were fired as the coffin was carried through the street. Continue reading Hizbullah Mourns Quneitra Martyrs; Jihad Mughniyeh Mentored by Suleimani

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah: The game is over in Syria

by Ali Hashem, Al-Monitor

“The game is over,” Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah said. “All hostile attempts to execute plans in Syria and Iraq failed,” he said in the three-hour interview with the pan-Arab news channel Al-Mayadeen on Jan. 15.

Nasrallah’s interview was packed with messages on Israel, Syria, Iraq, Bahrain and Iran; in rhetoric, it seemed offensive, non-conciliatory and threatening, yet between the lines, there were stances that could be seen as new and promising, mainly on Syria.

The Hizbullah Project: Last War, Next War

by Amal Saad-Ghorayeb, Open Democracy

One of the main “lessons learned” from the war of July-August 2006 is that the modern concept of asymmetric warfare, which emerged in the late 1990s in the United States, is already in dire need of revision. Hizbollah’s military performance during the war demonstrates that asymmetric warfare can no longer be identified exclusively with political actors who adopt “non-traditional” methods “that differ significantly from the opponent’s usual mode of operations” (as per the US military’s definition).

Sayyed Nasrallah: Ummah Must Unite to Face Takfiris, Defend Islam

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah stressed Friday that terrorist groups are offending the Messenger of Allah – Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) – by their shameful actions, especially when they “behead thousands of people and kill thousands of people in Yemen for commemorating the Prophet’s birth anniversary.”

“Those offensives are supported by being easily circulated across several geographical locations, starting from Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq, to the states that facilitated visas for terrorists to travel into our country.” Continue reading Sayyed Nasrallah: Ummah Must Unite to Face Takfiris, Defend Islam

IRGC Commander: Chain of Resistance Stretching Across Region

(EDITOR’S NOTE: The following statement from the IRGC’s lieutenant commander, while obviously lacking in detail, is still extraordinarily stunning and seems to confirm Mouqawamah Music’s analysis from October, “The Long Arm of the Resistance: From Yemen to Saudi and Back Again”, which theorized, using strong evidence, that Hizbullah and the IRGC are aiding the Houthis — aka Ansarullah — in Yemen against the US-“Israeli”-Saudi-backed regime in Sanaa. Brigadier General Salami’s words shouldn’t be seen as braggadocio but rather as a warning to the Judaic Power Configuration and its regional lackeys that despite their best efforts to subjugate, undermine and stifle mouqawamah, the Resistance Axis is not to be messed with as it has only prospered, increased steadfastness and added additional members. Inspiring doesn’t really seem to cut it… With the new year upon us, and a year of great victories but great sadness and terrible losses finally behind us, a much more appropriate word would be hopeful. Iran, Hizbullah, Syria and the Houthis are like a life-raft of hope and light in a pessimistic world drowning in darkness; may 2015 bring us more hope, exponentially, and may the “chain of resistance” spoken of by the IRGC second-in-command stretch out across the globe until World Zionism is choked into breathlessness. ~ Jonathan Azaziah)

Terrorist From Saudi-Controlled Abdullah Azzam Brigades was Involved in Shatah’s Assassination

A senior militant recently detained by the Lebanese army was involved in the assassination of Minister Mohammed Shatah, the transfer of suicide bombers who killed dozens of people, in addition to several other terror offenses, media reports said on Thursday.

“Mahmoud Ahmed Abu Abbas was arrested in (the Bekaa town of) Majdal Anjar before being immediately transferred to the defense ministry building,” al-Mayadeen television reported.

It said he was involved in the 2013 assassination of Minister Mohammed Shatah in a central Beirut car bombing.

Military sources informed on the investigations told al-Mayadeen that “the car used in Shatah’s assassination came from the Ain el-Hilweh camp,” noting that Abdullah Azzam Brigades leader “Majed al-Majed was arrested four days after the assassination.”
