Lebanese security forces have exchanged fire with al-Qaeda-linked militants in the Bekaa Valley near the border with Syria.
Local sources said the clashes erupted outside the towns of Deir al-Ghazal and Qusaya on Wednesday when al-Nusra Front militants tried to infiltrate into Lebanon from Syria.
The Lebanese army, supported by Syrian soldiers on the other side of the border, halted the terrorists’ advance, with Hezbollah fighters also giving a hand to prevent their infiltration. Continue reading Lebanese military, Hizbullah and Syrian Arab Army Stop Nusra Infiltration

Necessity is the mother of invention. The Resistance has recently demonstrated its biggest achievements yet in the fight with Israel. Indeed, it is not an exaggeration to say that Gaza, and behind it Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah, had anticipated the day when the borders and the sea surrounding Gaza would be sealed off. Today, Egypt and Israel are stepping up their coordination to make the sea off limits to the resistance, while in the south, their armies are working to establish a buffer zone and even a water trench, in the hope of putting an end to the smuggling of rockets from the Iranian desert to the Mediterranean.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s recent Ashoura speech — which Mouqawamah Music excerpted just the other day via Al-Manar — was a blistering takedown of Wahhabi-Takfirism and it was quite possibly his most brilliant, in-depth denunciation of the twisted, perverted ideology yet, as he categorically broke down its dangers from the historical, cultural, political, military and security angles, as well as the increasing need for Sunni-Shi’a unity to confront it. Hizbullah’s Secretary-General also discussed the dangerous rise of atheism in the Arab-Islamic world, an obvious side-effect of the Takfiri sickness afflicting the region and yet another issue that requires steadfast and committed Sunni-Shi’a unity to tackle and ultimately defeat it.

A senior official of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah has described the ISIL terrorist group as a threat to the Middle East region and the entire world.
Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem said the ISIL Takfiri militants have launched a campaign of fear and terror to expand the terrorist group’s territory.
Saying that the ISIL terrorists have resorted to extreme forms of brutality, the Hezbollah official added, the Takfiri group, supported by some regional and Western countries, suffers from disunity in its ranks since its terrorists come from about eighty countries.

The Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah has denounced a ruling by the Bahraini regime to suspend the activities of the country’s prominent opposition party al-Wefaq ahead of the upcoming parliamentary elections in the Persian Gulf kingdom.
In a statement on Tuesday, Hezbollah said the ban on al-Wefaq party “proves that the elections (scheduled for November 22) are sham, pre-determined and far away from representing the will of the Bahraini people and the political powers.” Continue reading Hizbullah slams Bahrain ruling to suspend al-Wefaq
(EDITOR’S NOTE: The photo above is from the ancient Syrian village of Maaloula, the only place in the world where Aramaic, the language of Prophet Jesus The Messiah (A.S.) is still spoken. Hizbullah, alongside the Syrian Arab Army, liberated Maaloula and the rest of the strategic Qalamoun Mountains from Zionist-backed Takfiri control earlier this year. The love and support for Hizbullah ain’t just a Lebanese thing but a Syrian thing as well, masha’ALLAH. Takfiris and their masters in Washington, “Tel Aviv”, Ankara and Riyadh have failed to achieve sectarian-communal division in Bilad al-Sham and both these pieces of evidence validate this reality beyond a shadow of a doubt. ~ Jonathan Azaziah)
