We Remember SSNP Legends Ibtissam Harb And Khaled al-Azraq, Martyred Fighting ‘Israel’ On This Day 33 Years Ago

by Jonathan Azaziah

Bow your heads and be in awe of the Martyrs. Many of you have heard and read about Sana’a “Bride Of The South” Mehaidli, the SSNP warrioress who sacrificed herself in the fight against the Zionist occupation on April 9th, 1985, becoming a Resistance icon recognizable to Mouqawamists and striking fear in the spineless beings of our enemies all over the world. What you more than likely have NOT heard and read about are the two legendary SSNP heroes who followed her dauntless example exactly 3 months later on this day 33 years ago: Ibtissam Harb, a 28-year old Lebanese psychology major from the Chouf Mountains, and Khaled al-Azraq, a 20-year Syrian student from ancient Aleppo. Staging their Resistance attacks only five minutes from one another, they hit ‘Israeli’ checkpoints at Hasbaya, right at the foot of Jabal al-Sheikh, and Ras el-Bayyada, a picturesque little place with a turquoise lagoon known all throughout Lebanon’s South for its beauty. The areas are 3 and 8 miles from occupied Palestine respectively–so close you can taste the Palestinian air. In other words, the operations were more than daring as they were carried out inside the fortified “security zone”. Harb and Al-Azraq however did not fear the Jewish terrorist regime’s helicopters, nor tanks, nor artillery. They went forward with pure hearts and unbreakable determination, giving their lives in the process and also killing and wounding nearly three dozen Zionist invaders and their SLA marionettes.

Kneel in respect before the Bride of the South! Princess of Purity and Matriarch of Mouqawamah! On this day 32 years ago, Sana’a Mehaidli became the first Lebanese woman and one of the very first Arab women to execute a martyrdom operation against the usurping ‘Israeli’ enemy. Born in the village of Ayoun right near Saida, she was only 17 years old at the time of her martyrdom. Do let her youth fool you though. She was a devoted member of the SSNP (Syrian Social Nationalist Party) and an eloquent, fiery and poetic Anti-Zionist who would’ve led her people to many a victory if she didn’t make the ultimate sacrifice. With no fear and nothing but the love of her country, our region and the Palestinian cause in her heart, she detonated a small vehicle loaded with explosive materials next to an ‘Israeli’ occupation checkpoint in Jezzine, a breathtakingly beautiful, mountain-and-forest-filled area of South Lebanon which had been putrefied by the Zionist occupiers. At least 2 ‘Israeli’ soldiers were sent to the hellfire and over 12 others were wounded in the blast. The biggest blow however was psychological, as she reminded the ‘Israeli’ demons that their demise could come at any place, at any time, from anyone and that this fate of theirs was etched in the stars.
