Happy Second Liberation Day! On this very day last year, the Lebanese Islamic Resistance of Hizbullah, in cooperation with the Syrian Arab Army and the Lebanese Armed Forces, expelled the last remaining Takfiri terrorists from Jroud al-Arsal, preventing an ISIS-Al-Qaeda takeover of Lebanon and permanently defeating the plot derived from Oded Yinon to balkanize the state on ethno-sectarian lines. Three days later, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah took to the airwaves to declare that “the Second Liberation Day of Lebanon will be recorded someday in the history of Lebanon and the region as a major achievement, just like Resistance and Liberation Day before it. This will come to pass whether the Lebanese government recognizes it or not; whether the Lebanese government likes it or not.” Continue reading Happy Second Liberation Day!

An official of Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement has blasted Saudi Arabia’s bid to silence the group’s vocal opposition to its Yemeni aggression, saying Saudi money could not buy Hezbollah’s silence.
“Those who are waging an aggression against Yemen today have also mistaken their calculations and approach towards Hezbollah,” said the movement’s deputy head of executive council, Sheikh Nabil Qaouq, as quoted in a Sunday report by Lebanese Naharnet news website.
He further suggested that the Saudi regime was attempting to silence the group’s vocal opposition to its aggression against its neighbor adding, “They were betting on our silence and on neutralizing us, but they failed to realize that we do not fear threats and that we cannot be sold or bought.” Continue reading Hizbullah slams Saudi’s bid to buy silence on Yemen
Hezbollah Media Relations issued on Wednesday a statement in which it considered that Future movement’s attachment to the Saudi leadership and its efforts to satisfy and desperately defend it will not make us remain silent over the aggression on Yemen.
The statement added that the regime of the Saud family is purchasing consciences, importing armies and soldiers, and sowing discord and divisions in order to fragment countries and murder innocents.
Asking whether Future movement is dissatisfied with Hezbollah rejection for the Saudi aggression on Yemen, the party noted that the rhetoric of Future movement gives the impression that it supports the extermination operations and mass murders that are being committed by the Saudi aggression’s warplanes against innocent civilians.

Riyadh has ‘red-lighted’ the planned dialogue between Hezbollah and the Future Movement before it even began. The Saudi call for Hezbollah to be put on the list of terrorist organizations made at the United Nations threatens to renew tension between the two sides, following an undeclared truce in the media that did not last for more than a few days.
Is there a fixed Saudi, and consequently Gulf policy, vis-à-vis Lebanon? Are these countries really keen on the stability of this country, as they claim, when they hardly spare any occasion to exacerbate its divisions? These questions and others are being asked after the new Saudi escalation against Hezbollah, which is likely to aggravate the already complex situation in Lebanon and the region.
