Repercussions of Europe’s “Terror” Designation of the IRG

 January 24, 2023

Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri and Syrian Defense Minister Ali Mahmoud Abbas

Iran’s highest-ranking military commander called for plans to hold a joint war game with Syria, which he hailed for being at the forefront of supporting Palestine against the Zionist regime.

In a meeting with Syrian Defense Minister Ali Mahmoud Abbas, held in Tehran on Monday, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri lauded Syria for its resistance and supporting Palestine from the outset of occupation of the Palestinian territories by the Zionist regime.

The senior commander stressed the need for staging a joint military exercise between Iran and Syria.

Major General Baqeri also condemned the recurrent Israeli acts of aggression against the Arab country that has violated international law.

He noted that Iran has provided advisory support for the Syrian Army so far, expressing the Islamic Republic’s readiness to help the Syrian military forces in restructuring, training, and supplying equipment.

For his part, the Syrian defense minister highlighted the close interaction between Damascus and Tehran in the fight against terrorism and the common enemy.

Praising the Islamic Republic for backing his country during the crisis and for standing against the Israeli regime, Abbas said Syria will continue to fight against the Zionist regime and stand with the nations seeking independence.

In July 2020, Iran and Syria signed a comprehensive agreement to enhance their cooperation in the military and defense sectors.

Iran began providing Syria with advisory military assistance after numerous countries, at the head of them the US and its Western and regional allies started funding and arming militants and terrorists with the aim of deposing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government in 2011.

Despite initially losing considerable expanses of territory to Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) and other terror outfits, the country, however, rallied with the help of Iran and Russia, another ally of Damascus, and reversed the balance in favor of itself on the battleground.

ماذا يعني الحرس الثوي الإيراني بالنسبة لإيران شعباً وحكومة وثورة إسلامية وقيادة عليا؟

ولماذا يُستهدف من قبل القوى الاستعمارية والرجعية دوماً؟

من حق الرأي العام العربي والعالمي ان يعرف من هو هذا الجيش المنيع الذي تحاول أميركا عبثاً النيل منه، ولات حين مناص!

IRGC Says Revenge on Gen. Soleimani’s Murderers is “Definite”

January 2, 2023

IRGC

In a statement commemorating the third anniversary of Martyr Soleimani, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) considered revenge against the perpetrators and murders of Martyr Soleimani as certain.

The statement said that the three years since the martyrdom of Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani the discourse of Resistance and anti-Arrogance around the world has matured.

Referring to the school of Martyr Soleimani, the statement added that Martyr Haj Qassem is a lasting legend and myth not only for Iran and Iranians but also for the Anti-Arrogant and anti-Zionist Resistance front in the world.

According to the statement, Martyr Soleimani following the instructions of Imam Khomeini (RA) and Imam Khamenei, had firmly set to respond to the needs of the revolution, Iran, and the Muslim nations of the region in dealing with Takfiri terrorism and ISIL by using the capacities of the Resistance Front and its allies and supporters.

The statement further added that the strength and vitality of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps in advancing the strategy of supporting and accompanying the Islamic Resistance Front indicate the continuation of the path of General Soleimani and the survival of the ideal of the Iranian nation in supporting the Palestinian nation and the liberation of Quds.

The statement considered taking revenge on the perpetrators and murderers of Martyr Soleimani as a “definite” and “inviolable” matter and further stated that the IRGC monitors the process of expelling the US from the West Asian region and deems the promotion of the schools of figures such as General Soleimani schools in Iran as undeniable strategies of the IRGC.

In the end, the Guards reiterated that they will sacrifice their lives for the sake of the homeland and the nation against the global hegemonic system and Zionism.

Ex-US Officer to Al-Manar: My Country’s Government Stands on the Wrong Side

November 25, 2022

Former US army officer Scott Bennett stressed that the American people have been through years deceived by the pro-Zionist media, underlining importance of addressing these crowds in a bid to “let them know the truth” about Palestine, Hezbollah and other resistance factions in the region.

In a recent exclusive interview, the ex-officer in the US’ 11th Psychological Operations Battalion revealed to Batoul Wehbe, the Editor-in-chief of Al-Manar English Website, how the US administration funded ISIS (ISIL), Al-Qaeda, Al-Nusra Front and other terrorists.

He narrated how he was jailed by the US government after he exposed the US support to Takifris in the region.

Mr. Bennett also slammed double standards in dealing with Ukraine and Palestine, as he revealed that the 9/11 attacks in 2001 was plotted by the Zionists.

“Americans Brainwashed”

The former US officer described the American people as “brainwashed”, noting that they “need to wake up” and stand by the Palestinian people against Israeli crimes.

He pointed to a change in the political powers in the world, “with the decrease of the western influence and the rise of independent states.”

Asked about the possibility of having a third Intifada in Palestine, Mr. Bennett said: “we may be in the verge of the Israelis being foolish enough to start another fight but if they do they will lose it and they will also recognize no one in America or Europe supports Israel’s genocide, apartheid and racist bigotry.”

Ukraine: Hypocrisy, Double Standards
Talking about Ukraine, the former Psychological officer slammed what he called “hypocrisy and double standards” in dealing with Ukraine and Palestine.

In this context, he stressed that Ukraine is “a wasted effort”, adding that the US and the EU “stand on the wrong side” while Russia “stands on the right side.”

Affirming that Russia has already won the war against Ukraine, he pointed to US’ betrayal of Europe and destroying its gas ability, expecting a ‘revolution’ against Washington in the European countries this winter.

Bennet Exposed US’ Financing of Terrorists

Asked to define terrorism, Dr. Bennett narrated how he came out as a “different man” after being jailed because of a report he handed over to the US army command that exposed the US government’s financing of terrorists.

He also mentioned that he had worked with American whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Hezbollah and Sayyed Nasrallah Psychological Tactics

Praising Hezbollah’s Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah as a powerful speaker, Mr. Bennett hoped that Sayyed Nasrallah can address the western crowds and “tell them the truth.”

He noted meanwhile, that America “is greatly suffering as t’s embroiling with all kinds of perversions,” stressing that this country “needs to be spiritually healed.”

9/11 Attacks Plotted by Zionists, CIA

The US Psychological analyst lashed out at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a “war criminal.” In this context, he revealed that the Zionist entity’s Mossad was behind the 9/11 attacks in 2001, alongside with intelligence of several other countries.

Videos| 6 Killed, Dozens Injured in Istanbul Blast

 November 14, 2022

Ambulance vehicles and emergency services rush to scene of blast in Istanbul (Sunday, November 13, 2022).

At least six people were killed and 81 others were wounded in an explosion in a busy area of central Istanbul, Turkish authorities have said on Sunday.

The blast happened at about 16:20 local time (13:20 GMT) on a shopping street in the Taksim Square area, the Turkish city’s governor Ali Yerlikaya said.

The area, in the Beyoglu district of Turkey’s largest city, had been crowded as usual at the weekend with shoppers, tourists and families.

Vice-President Fuat Oktay said the blast was thought to be a terrorist attack carried out by a woman.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said before his departure to the Group of 20 (G20) summit in Indonesia that the perpetrators would be punished.

Speaking at a news conference in Istanbul, he condemned what he called the “vile attack” and said “the smell of terror” was in the air.

Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag told Turkish media a woman had sat on a bench in the area for more than 40 minutes, leaving just minutes before the blast took place.

No one has so far claimed responsibility for the blast.

Government minister Derya Yanik wrote in a tweet that a government ministry employee and his young daughter were among the victims.

Sayyed Nasrallah: USA Responsible for Lebanon’s Curses-Israeli Aggression, Takfiri Scheme. Economic Siege, Political Chaos

 November 11, 2022

Mohammad Salami

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah stressed on Friday that the United States of America is behind all the woes plaguing Lebanon, adding that the Resistance, in cooperation with the patriotic parties, has confronted the US curses.

Addressing Hezbollah ceremony marking Martyr’s Day, Sayyed Nasrallah responded to the remarks made the US Assistant Secretary of State for Near Asis Affairs, Barbara Leaf, who had described Hezbollah as Lebanon’s curse.

Sayyed Nasrallah recalled that all the Israeli massacres and crimes against the Lebanese were committed under the patronage of the US administration, adding that the Israeli curse was made in USA.

The US administration is the curse that has plagued Lebanon, and Hezbollah, in cooperation with the Resistance factions, expelled it, Sayyed Nasrallah said.

The US greed made Washington destroy the Middle East countries, including Iraqi and Afghanistan, through wars and invasions, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who added that USA also sent dozens of thousand of takfiri terrorists to the region.

Hezbollah as well as the Lebanese people and army confronted the terrorist curse and overcame it, Sayyed Nasrallah recalled.

Hezbollah leader emphasized the US administration was beyond the chaos which spread in Lebanon in 2019, adding that the US officials confessed that they trained and prepared the NGOs in order to destabilize the Lebanese state.

Sayyed Nasrallah noted that the anarchy plot in 2019 failed to decompose the state, but that it managed to besiege Lebanon remotely.

Washington has prevented all the world countries from helping Lebanon, according to the Resistance Leader who added that the US officials have always warned the Lebanese officials against accepting donations.

Will the Lebanese officials accept the Russian power and wheat aids? Sayyed Nasrallah asked.

Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that the US administration has prevented the Lebanese officials from purchasing Iranian fuel oil, adding that it obliged Lebanon to reject an Iranian fuel donation as well.

Iran welcomed a Lebanese technical team that visited Tehran to coordinate the fuel donation and approved the required amount, Sayyed Nasrallah said, adding that the Islamic Republic intends to help Lebanon without asking for anything in return.

Regarding the maritime border demarcation, Sayyed Nasrallah affirmed that the US administration facilitated the indirect deal in order to shun a Middle East war and help the Zionist entity, not Lebanon.

USA knows the repercussions of a war between Hezbollah and ‘Israel’, so it accepted the demands of the Lebanese state, according to Sayyed Nasrallah, who added that Lebanon reached that indirect deal, thanks to the Resistance power and the international circumstances.

Who is preventing Lebanon from importing the Egyptian gas and Jordanian electric power? Sayyed Nasrallah asked.

Regionally, Sayyed Nasrallah said the US policy in the Middle East is even more detrimental, highlighting the Caesar Act used in order to starve Syria, adding that the Americans want to defeat Syria via siege after the failure of dozens of thousands of terrorists to reach this end.

Sayyed Nasrallah asked, “Who is responsible for all the regional woes, what is going on in Yemen and Iran ?”

Sayyed Nasrallah drew the attention of the audience to the fact that Iran has resolutely  overcome the US-Israeli-Western conspiracy and even become more powerful.

Sayyed Nasrallah also noted that the US curse is beyond the Palestinian woe  as well, highlighting the ongoing aggression of the Israeli enemy on the Palestinians.

Hezbollah Chief called on the Lebanese officials and political parties to confront the US policies, or that the US curse will lead Lebanon to destruction.

Sayyed Nasrallah: Hezbollah Wants New President in Lebanon to Be Courageous, Refrain from Backstabbing Resistance

Hezbollah Secretary General indicated  that all the Lebanese political parties reject the presidential vacuum, adding, however, filling this vacuum must not be away from the required specifications.

Sayyed Nasrallah added that the Lebanese presidency is an important post which concerns all the Lebanese, not just the Christians or the Maronite, calling for more political efforts to reach an agreement in this regard.

Bilateral and trilateral meetings can replace the dialogue session, called for by House speaker Nabih Berri and rejected by some parties, according to Sayyed Nasrallah.

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that Hezbollah wants the new president must be able to protect the national strengths, led by the Resistance, noting that this is a strategic issue related to that national security.

Sayyed Nasrallah added that this Resistance is always under fire, noting that the US remarks confirm this notion and pointing out that the US scheme aims stirring sedition in Lebanon and provoking the Lebanese army to fight Hezbollah.

in light of the shameful US intervention in the Lebanese internal affairs, the Resistance and its supporters have the right, as a large segment of the Lebanese people, to say that they want a courageous president who reassures the resistance, Sayyed Nasrallah said.

Frankly speaking, we want a courageous president who does not shudder and get scared when the US embassy threatens him, Sayyed Nasrallah said, adding that the new president must not be a person who accepts to be bought and sold.

Sayyed Nasrallah recalled the experience of the two former Presidents Emile Lahoud and Michel Aoun who reassured the Resistance and refrained from backstabbing it, adding that all the military achievements of the resistance in 2000, 2006 and 2017 benefited from thus presidential support.

Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated that Hezbollah does not need the new president to protect it, adding what is important is that the new president does not back stab the Resistance.

Sayyed Nasrallah clarified that President Aoun did not grant Hezbollah any extra influence on the Lebanese state, adding, had Hezbollah been able to rule the government, it would have approved the Iranian fuel donation.

Sayyed Nasrallah noted that the other presidential elections are also important, but that the basic requirement of the presidential candidate is reassuring the resistance.

US Midterm Elections

Hezbollah leader indicated that the US elections will not change the strategic policies of the United States based on launching wars, plundering fortunes, and supporting ‘Israel’.

All the US governments resort to different tactics, but preserve the same criminal principles, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who added that the United States is responsible for the Israeli crimes and massacres against the Lebanese, Palestinians and all the Arabs.

Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that, in face of the US schemes, the national unity in the region must be sustained in order to protect the resources and fortunes.

Israeli Knesset Elections

Hezbollah leader indicated that the result of the Knesset elections, whcih gave the Right Coalition led by Benjamin Netanyahu, does not make any difference with respect to Lebanon.

Sayyed Nasrallah said, “All Israeli governments since that which was led by Ben-Gurion have been similar. Things will not change despite far-right coalition’s win.”

Lebanon will not be affected even if Netanyahu chooses insane figures to be in his government, thanks to the Resistance power, according to Sayyed Nasrallah, who added such a step will just deteriorate strife in the Zionist society.

Sayyed Nasrallah also indicated that Netanyahu will not be able to revoke the indirect maritime deal with Lebanon, adding that the Resistance power guarantees Lebanon’s rights in this regard.

Hezbollah Martyr’s Day

Sayyed Nasrallah started his speech by reciting Quranic verses which praise martyrdom, adding that the Resistance Party has chosen November 11 to mark Martyr’s Day because, in 1982, it witnessed the immense martyrdom operation carried out by martyr Ahmad Kassir against the Israeli enemy.

Martyr Kassir’s operation, which destroyed the Israeli military command headquarters in Tyre and killed over 100 Zionist soldiers and officers, immensely shocked the Zionist enemy, Sayyed Nasrallah said.

Sayyed Nasrallah said that martyr Kassir’s operation has been the most enormous in face of ‘Israel’ so far, hoping there will be more immense operations against the usurping entity.

His eminence underscored that the martyrs’ families played a vital role in their heavy sacrifices by guiding them to the battlefield, just as the case of Karbala.

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that preserving and appreciating the sacrifices of the martyrs and the families sustains our power, adding that Hezbollah is trying its best to retrieve bodies of martyrs missed in battlefields.

Sayyed Nasrallah indicated that Hezbollah has witnessed a phenomenon of having trans-generational martyrdom-grandfather, father, and son, adding that this confirms failure of soft warfare aimed at morally perverting “our young generation”.

In this regard, Sayyed Nasrallah cited the scene of the young Resistance fighters who display commitment and enthusiasm in the battlefield, adding that this has surprised the Israeli enemy in Lebanon and Palestine as well.

Sayyed Nasrallah also warned against the plot aimed spreading the moral degeneration enhanced by the telecommunication devices, calling on the families to look after their children.

Al-Zamrani border crossing with Lebanon in Damascus countryside

Easing the process of securing and inspecting trucks entering Syrian territory, successively, now, convoys cross and carry many Syrian families with their children entering Syrian territory. As you can see, this convoy is now entering with perhaps about 329 people on board. The first trucks have now arrived at the Al-Zamrani crossing.

The process is going to conduct the inspection process by both the Syrian and Lebanese sides, as well as the insurance process for all cars, in order for both sides to ensure that there are no security breaches that might disturb the process.

This process is going under direct and single supervision between the Syrian and Lebanese sides without any entry or supervision by UN organizations. On the contrary, there were local organizations on both sides following up on the affairs of refugees who return to their homes and villages after about 10 years of displacement in Lebanon.

Dabousiyah border crossing with Lebanon in Homs countryside:

A new batch of displaced people return to Syria via the Dabousiyah border with Lebanon after years of displacement under the pressure of terrorist groups. Homs Governorate has taken all necessary measures to receive them and deliver them to their liberated areas.

– I call on all those present (displaced persons) in Lebanon to return to the homeland, praise be to God, Lord of the Worlds, that peace has prevailed in the homeland and, God willing, it will return as it was before and better than that.

– The procedures are very good, may God give you wellness, the children get vaccinations, and they received us very nicely.

– I returned to my country, no matter how far I went, I returned to my country to serve my country and my country because there is nothing more warm-heartedness than the homeland.

– Frankly, the first thing is that the displacement from the country is very difficult, and now that we are back in Syria, we are very happy.

Jalal Fakhoury, representative of Homs Governorate: All logistical and moral support has been provided, even buses, medical care, and all supplies are currently secured, and full facilities will be provided for their return to their homeland and homes.

Muslim Atassi – Director of Homs Health: The returnees were fully examined and asked about the elderly about chronic heart diseases, diabetes, stress, or other diseases, and for children, the parents were asked about the vaccines they received and what they lacked.

Fadi Issa, Director of the Dabousiyah Border Crossing: In turn, we, Dabousiyah Border Crossing authority provide all requirements and provide facilities, whether in the field of health or civil records and all transactions as simple and easy as possible.

The process of returning the displaced to Syria continues according to the set plan, with all facilities being provided for their return to their areas after years of displacement.

From the Dabousiyah crossing in the western countryside of Homs, Osama Dayoub for the Syrian News.

End of the transcript.

A spokesperson for Damascus Countryside Governorate confirmed that all the returnees have arrived at their homes after the medical examinations and receiving the needed medicine and vaccines for those who needed them.

Many of the Syrians who sought refuge in Lebanon after their towns and villages were invaded by the US-sponsored moderate rebels of head-choppers, suicide bombers, and rapist subhumans, thought they’d be treated with the same hospitality the Lebanese were treated in Syria every time Israel bombed their country in the past, they were wrong.

Not only have the Lebanese authorities under the US and Saudi influence forced the poor of them to live in poor conditions, over-charged the wealthier of them high rentals and fees, and stole in total billions of dollars from the very wealthy Syrians who chose Lebanon as a temporary refuge, the Lebanese authorities were allowing thugs to physically harm the Syrian workers, kill many of them, and worse, prevent them from returning to their home country for political reasons.

Now, that the utterly failed presidency of Michel Aoun was ending (it ended on 30 October), the Lebanese authorities started relaxing their restrictions over the return of Syrian refugees to Syria, Aoun was instrumental behind the US Congress’s so-called Syria Accountability Act of 2003 which led to the series of increased severe economic measures by the US-led western world against the Syrian people.

Radical Lebanese have also torched the camps of the Syrian refugees in Lebanon on several occasions the last of which was yesterday in the town of Arsal in eastern Lebanon.

Iran Arrests 26 Terrorists in Shiraz Attack

November 7, 2022

Source: Agencies

The Ministry of Intelligence of the Islamic Republic of Iran has announced that 26 Takfiri terrorists have been arrested so far and that the main coordinator of the Shahcheragh terror attack is an Azerbaijani national.

The ministry issued its second statement on the recent terrorist attack at the Shahcheragh holy shrine in Shiraz, Fars Province, noting that officers and intelligence experts of the ministry continued their all-out efforts to identify and arrest the culprits of the attack through one of the most sophisticated operations.

The investigations have led to the identification of perpetrators behind the terrorist attack.

Moreover, some other Takfiri terrorists who have entered the country to carry out similar attacks have been arrested.

All arrested people are non-Iranian nationals from the Azerbaijan Republic, Tajikistan, and Afghanistan.

The main element and coordinator of the terrorist operation is an Azerbaijani national, who had flown from Heydar Aliyev International Airport in Baku and landed at Imam Khomeini Airport near Tehran.

The person introduced himself as a coordinator and connected to Daesh elements in Afghanistan.

In Shiraz, there were also an Afghan coordinator called Abu Basir and a Tajik terrorist named Abu Ayesha, who committed the crime at Shahcheragh.

The terrorists were hunted and arrested in different provinces of Fars, Tehran, Alborz, Qom, Kerman, and Razavi Khorasan, other Takfiris were arrested near border areas when they were trying to escape.

Certain anti-Iran media outlets attempted to portray Iranian intelligence forces as the culprits of the terrorist attack in Shiraz, but it is worth mentioning that the Takfiris used the unrest and riots in the Islamic country to pursue their agenda, as some of the terrorists acknowledged that the extremists were invited to conduct attacks following the protests erupted in Iran.

Those, who attributed the terrorist attack to the Iranian intelligence society, played a complementary role in supporting Daesh and creating psychological warfare.

Syrian Security Units Eliminate an ISIS Terrorist Group in Daraa

ARABI SOURI

Syrian security units with the help of locals eliminated an ISIS terrorist group on the outskirts of Al Sadd Road in the city of Daraa in southern Syria, the security units seized a massive quantity of weapons and munitions from the dens the terrorists were hiding in.

The Syrian news agency Sana reported the qualitative operation quoting a security spokesperson who confirmed the killing of an unspecified number of ISIS (ISIL – Daesh) terrorists during severe clashes in the Al Sadd Road where the US-created, funded, armed, trained, and politically sponsored ISIS terrorists holed in houses and farms which they turned into fortresses.

The video is also available on Rumble, and BitChute,

Local sources reported hearing heavy clashes from the early hours of dawn of today Monday, 31st October, in the area in the south of the city of Daraa, and the clashes continued to the time of this report.

The local sources added that dozens of former fighters in the NATO-sponsored ISIS terrorists joined the security agencies within the ranks of the Eighth Brigade of the Fifth Corp of the Syrian Arab Army in protecting their city against the ISIS terrorists.

The Fifth Corps comprises mainly former fighters who were either forced to join some of the many terrorist groups of the so-called FSA, an umbrella for a variety of Al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists dubbed by NATO officials and Pentagon stenographs as Moderate Rebels. Other fighters were subjected to heavy propaganda that brainwashed them and thought that betraying their country for foreign powers, killing their own brethren, and destroying their own cities and towns is a patriotic act.

After the liberation of Daraa province from the NATO-sponsored Al Qaeda and ISIS terrorists, the vast majority of the fighters joined the reconciliation process, dropped their weapons, and either returned to their normal lives or joined the Fifth Corps to fight the real terrorists.

The latest escalation comes after an ISIS terrorist blew himself up in the Arba’een neighborhood in Daraa Balad in a house on the 28th of the month killing four civilians and injuring others.

The United States of America’s war ministry, the Pentagon vowed to revive ISIS terrorist groups in late September 2019 after the backbone of the terrorist organization was defeated in both Syria and Iraq, one of the early steps the USA took was committing the unprecedented war crime of killing Iranian General Qassim Soleimani and Iraqi PMU Deputy Leader Abu Mahdi Al Muhandis at Baghdad Airport on the 3rd of January 2020. Both commanders were instrumental in combating ISIS in the region.

Why Western regimes are complicit in Daesh carnage at popular Iran shrine

Friday, 28 October 2022 6:16 AM  [ Last Update: Friday, 28 October 2022 7:51 AM ]

Shah Cheragh shrine in southern Shiraz city belongs to Ahmed ibn Musa Kazim.

By Syed Zafar Mehdi

It didn’t come as a surprise that the Daesh Takfiri group claimed responsibility for the dastardly terrorist attack at the revered Shah Cheragh shrine in Shiraz on Wednesday.

The modus operandi employed by the Kalashnikov-yielding terrorist who went on a rampage at the 12th-century shrine belonging to a descendant of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) was straight out of the Daesh playbook.

So, quite expectedly, the group in a statement posted on their website Amaq News bragged about the carnage, which left at least 15 people dead and dozens of others injured.

Among the victims were 4-year-old Artin’s parents and brother, who had gone to the shrine for evening prayers. Artin was lucky to survive and is recuperating from injuries at a local hospital in Shiraz.

The terrorist, whose identity hasn’t been disclosed yet, reportedly aimed to target the congregational prayers inside the main hall of the shrine, but the shrine staff shut the door on him, preventing a bigger massacre.

Let’s get this straight. Contrary to popular perception, Daesh hasn’t been decimated or consigned to the dustbin of history yet. The group, driven by the toxic Takfiri ideology, is very much active and thriving.

It reminds me of what Lebanese Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said some time ago. The self-anointed Daesh regime in Iraq and Syria was annihilated by the resistance axis led by Iran’s famed anti-terror commander Lt. Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

But, as a group and ideology, Daesh is still very much there – in Iraq, in Syria, in Afghanistan – overtly and covertly backed by Western powers.

It’s no secret how Daesh fighters were shipped from Iraq and Syria in military helicopters to Afghanistan, to fill the vacuum left by the US-led NATO military alliance. Those who deny this fact need a reality check.

This is the group that wreaked havoc in Iraq and Syria for years and continues to carry out diabolic attacks on religious and ethnic minorities in Afghanistan in line with the roguish agenda of Western hegemonic powers.

The far-right Takfiri ideology that drives these brainwashed terrorists, according to which anything not in sync with their rigid interpretation of religion must be exterminated, is essentially designed to sow seeds of discord among Muslims and malign the image of Islam. That is precisely where the interests of Daesh and Western powers converge.

The criminal collusion between them has been on full display in regional countries in recent years. And now they have shown the audacity to target the Islamic Republic of Iran, attacking the country’s sacred religious places and spilling innocent blood to incite sectarian tensions and civil war.

The last time Daesh footprints were spotted in Iran was in 2017 when the group targeted the mausoleum of the late founder of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Khomeini, and the parliament building, leaving at least 17 dead and hundreds of others injured.

This is a moment of reckoning for people in Iran, cutting across sectarian, regional, and ideological lines, to thwart evil plots designed to cause social disintegration in the country. It’s also important that regional countries join hands with the Islamic Republic to confront and defeat this hydra-headed monster before it swallows them.

The fact that Wednesday’s attack came amid foreign-backed unrest and riots in Iran makes it even more sinister and dastardly.

 It won’t be an exaggeration to state that the anarchy and mobocracy seen across Iran in recent weeks essentially paved the ground for this cold-blooded massacre, which makes the Western powers that instigated rioters directly complicit in this diabolic crime.

As Iran’s foreign minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian quite rightly remarked on Thursday, it’s a “multi-layered project” by enemies to fuel insecurity in the country.

What is also worth noting is the target chosen by the terrorist group – a holy shrine in a city known as Iran’s cultural capital. Shiraz, the capital of southern Fars province, is among the major tourist attractions in Iran, known for its picturesque gardens, ruins from Achaemenid era, mausoleums of legendary Persian poets Hafiz and Saadi, as well as the city’s rich heritage.

The objective appears to be fuelling insecurity, instilling fear, and turning Iran into another Afghanistan or Syria, so that tourists stop coming and locals live in constant fear.

There are very few hashtags for victims of Daesh terrorism in Shiraz, which is not surprising though. It goes to show not all lives matter. Had it been Paris or London or New York, it would be a different story altogether. But this is the Islamic Republic of Iran, the country that has singlehandedly challenged the hegemony of arrogant global powers and laid bare their evilness.

Hence, it’s only understandable why the corporate Western media, an extended arm of the Western military-industrial complex, has willfully shut its eyes to the bloodletting in Shiraz, treating it as a normal incident.

The same media brazenly distorted facts in the case of Mahsa Amini’s death and instigated deadly riots in Iran that cost many precious lives.

The self-righteous human rights advocates in the West, who miss no opportunity to decry Iranian authorities for using force to maintain law and order, especially amid foreign-backed riots, have also been silent. Their silence amounts to both complicity and cowardice.

As Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and President Ebrahim Raeisi have categorically stated, this terrorist act will not go unanswered. The perpetrators and their backers will have to pay the price. It’s important to nip this evil in the bud.

Sayyed Nasrallah: Mission Accomplished, Maritime Deal Great Victory to Lebanon

 October 27, 2022

Video

Marwa Haidar

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah hailed the maritime deal with the Israeli regime as “a great victory to Lebanon”, stressing that deal is neither an international accord, nor a Lebanese recognition of the Zionist entity.

In a televised address via Al-Manar during the inauguration of “Ardi” (My Land) Exhibition for Lebanese tradition food, Sayyed Nasrallah said that the resistance’s mission to defend Lebanon’s rights has been accomplished, declaring that the exceptional mobilization carried out by the Lebanese resistance groups for months is now over.

His eminence denounced the terrorist attack on a shrine in the Iranian city of Shiraz, stressing that those who ordered the latest riots across the Islamic Republic and those who recruited Shiraz shooting perpetrators belong to the same side.

Meanwhile, Sayyed Nasrallah praise the Palestinian resistance in the West Bank, Al-Quds and Gaza, lauding that the latest acts of resistance especially in Nablus, Jenin and Shuafat.

Shiraz Attack and Iran Riots

Sayyed Nasrallah started his speech by saying that the date of “Ardi” Exhibition was set two weeks earlier and that it coincided with the finalization of maritime border.

In this context he said that he will tackle the maritime deal in details at 20:30 (Beirut time) on Saturday (October 29), and that he will announce Hezbollah’s main stances regarding the issue during today’s speech.

The leader of the Lebanese resistance movement then denounced the terrorist attack by ISIL on a shrine in Iran’s Shiraz city, offering condolences to Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei and the Iranian nation.

“The horrible massacre perpetrated by ISIL terrorist group indicates the reality of this criminal and savage ideology along with who stands behind such groups and utilizes them to serve its interests, and I mean here the United States.”

“We have to be more vigilant and realize importance of the great Jihad against these terrorist groups in the region. While talking about this Jihad, we remember our great martyrs who led the fight against Takfiris like Hajj Qassem Suleimani, Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis and Mustafa Badreddine.”

Meanwhile, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that those who direct the latest riots across Iran are themselves who are behind Shiraz attack.

“The operator is one and the scheme is being plotted in one black room run by the US.”

Palestinian Resistance

Sayyed Nasrallah then saluted Palestinian resistance heroes in West Bank and Al-Quds, lauding martyr Udai Al-Tamimi who carried out Shuafat shooting and was martyred in another operation he had carried out ten days after being on run.

Fighters of Nablus-based resistance group Lions’ Den (photo from October 2022).

His eminence also saluted Nablus’ Lions’ Den and Jenin Battalion resistance groups, stressing that all resistance acts carried out by these heroes “undermine the Zionist entity.”

“What’s happening is promising and paves the way to impose new equations ahead of the final victory in Palestine.”

Lebanon Maritime Deal

Sayyed Nasrallah described maritime deal as a great victory to Lebanon’s state, people and resistance, declaring that the exceptional mobilization carried out by Hezbollah fighters in the latest months is over.

“As the letters are signed and the formal measures of the deal are finalized, we say that the mission has been accomplished and the exceptional mobilization is over.”

Lebanese President Michel Aoun and US Energy Envoy Amos Hochstein at Baabda Palace (Thursday, October 27, 2022)

“We in Hezbollah consider the indirect maritime talks as well as the deal a great victory to Lebanon’s state, people and resistance. What happened has important indications.”

Meanwhile, his eminence lashed out at anti-Hezbollah Lebanese figures who didn’t expect that the maritime deal will be signed.

“Some in Lebanon were surprised by finalizing the maritime deal, their spite made them blind,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, adding that his speech next Saturday will never address them.

The Hezbollah S.G. then hit back at those who claimed that the deal is a “form of normalization” with the Zionist entity.

“Claims on normalizing ties between Lebanon and the Zionist entity after the maritime deal are baseless and false accusations.”

He stressed that Lebanese officials never did any suspicious step that might indirectly imply normalization, adding that the Lebanese and Israeli delegations never met in one room.

“The document which Lebanon has signed is a US letter that doesn’t include an Israeli signature. It’s neither an international accord nor a recognition of the Israeli enemy, but rather it’s a letter that will be sent to the United Nations.”

Sayyed Nasrallah then addressed the outbreak of Cholera in Lebanon, voicing Hezbollah’s full readiness to stand by the health authorities in the country to counter the bacterial disease.

His eminence also hailed the “Ardi” Exhibition, calling to boost any form of local production across Lebanon.

Fresh missile attack targets US-occupied base in eastern Syria: Media

A US-occupied military base in the eastern Syrian province of Dayr al-Zawr has reportedly come under fresh missile strikes.

The attack targeted the outpost — located in Syria’s al-Omar Oilfield in the eastern side of Dayr al-Zawr — on Saturday, Syrian media outlets reported.

According to the reports, at least six missiles were fired towards the military outpost during the incident.

No person or group has so far claimed responsibility for the strikes.

The projectiles were fired from the direction of Dayr al-Zawr’s al-Hanawi and al-Mazare’ areas, the reports added, noting that American warplanes and helicopter gunships were seen loitering over the site of the attack during its immediate aftermath.

The US base has come under several such attacks over the past months.

The United States and its allied forces invaded Syria in 2014 under the pretext of fighting the Takfiri terrorist group of Daesh, which had been trained and supplied by US and allied military forces in their bids to overthrow the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad.

The US-led military interference was, however, amazingly — and some believe deliberately — slow in confronting the terrorists, despite the sheer size of the coalition that had enlisted scores of Washington’s allied countries.

American forces continue to occupy small parts of the Arab country, although, Damascus and its allies defeated the Daesh terrorists in late 2017.

Back in August, Damascus said the years-long occupation of Syria by the US had cost it $107.1 billion in oil and gas sector losses, referring to the occupying forces’ looting of the war-ravaged country’s rich resources, which began under former American president Donald Trump.

Tishreen Liberation War: A Compass of Struggle to Liberate Lands & Restore Rights

Posted by INTERNATIONALIST 360°
Damascus, SANA

Forty-Nine years have passed since Tishreen Liberation war and men of the Syrian Arab Army, who have defeated the Israeli enemy in 1973, continue victories over the tools of this enemy of terrorist organizations to restore security and stability to the majority of the Syrian territory after being cleared off terrorism thanks to the sacrifices of the army soldiers.

Tishreen liberation war, led by the late leader, Hafez al-Assad, has formed a compass of the struggle to liberate the usurped lands and restore the Arab rights. The liberation war was a clear declaration to start the era of victories and end the time of defeats to be the war of liberation, the first war in the Arab-Zionist conflict which broke the wall of despair after Naksa of June 1967 . Tishreen war has consolidated a fact that Syria is the fortress of the resilience of the Arab nation that defends its existence and future.

The Successive victories against the Zionist enemy since the October war stress that it has formed a solid rock on which the glory of national resistance against Colonial plots was built in the region. This enemy tried to steal the victory of October by occupying South Lebanon, but the Syrian Arab army with the blood of its martyrs and heroisms of 1982, defeated the Zionist enemy, followed by standing beside the patriotism of Lebanese Resistance until liberating most of the territories of southern Lebanon in 2000 and the defeat of the Israeli enemy there.

Heroic battles were carried on by the sons and grandsons of October liberation men in their war against terrorism during which they wrote heroic epics and engraved deeply in the conscience of the Syrians the meanings of pride and dignity, the blood of the martyrs, was the title of liberation from terrorism in Aleppo, Deir Ezzor and Ghouta ,Daraa, Hama, Quneitra, the countryside of Homs, Hama, the Syrian desert.

Dr. Bashar Al-Jaafari: Why They ‘Punish’ Syria

SEPTEMBER 27, 2022

Posted by INTERNATIONALIST 360° 

Tim Anderson

Syria’s centuries-old refusal to take orders from foreign powers and its resistance to repeated foreign interventions has led to its ‘punishment’ by frustrated imperial forces, says Syria’s Vice Foreign Minister Dr. Bashar Al-Jaafari.

Syria’s centuries-old refusal to take orders from foreign powers and its resistance to repeated foreign interventions has led to its ‘punishment’ by frustrated imperial forces, says Syria’s Vice Foreign Minister Dr. Bashar Al-Jaafari. “We are like Cuba; or perhaps Cuba is like us”, said the veteran diplomat.

That independent history can be traced back to ancient times, when Queen Zenobia broke away from Roman rule. It was inflamed a century ago when Sultan Pasha Al-Atrash led the Great Arab Revolt of the 1920s against the French colonial power. And it rose again with Syria’s defeat of a massive, decade-long proxy war, driven by Washington and other NATO states, “Israel” and some of the Gulf monarchies.

But while Syria, at great cost, has defeated mass terrorism, according to Dr. Al-Jaafari, the “unprecedented” military interventions, occupations and economic war remain. The USA and Turkey, two NATO states, occupy huge swathes of Syrian land in the north and east and the Israeli occupation remains in the south. Each provides safe haven for terrorist groups.

These days Washington does not even bother to deny that it is stealing Syrian oil and wheat. It even signs UN declarations supporting the “sovereignty and territorial integrity” of Syria, while occupying Syrian land out of spite, to punish and divide the peoples of the region, for the benefit of Israeli and US hegemony.

Syria as an Arab nation once included current-day Iskenderun, Lebanon, Palestine and Jordan. Colonists tried to crush its Pan-Arab ideology, which rose against the French and the British, leading to the hard-fought renewal of independence in 1947. Dr. Al-Jaafari says Pan-Arabism, which forms the basis of the Syrian Arab Baath Party and other groups (like Nasserites and the SSNP), is a reflection of the region’s Arab-speaking peoples, with a shared history, aspiration and culture.

Further, Syria, almost uniquely in the region, has led the process of separating religion from politics which, in turn, supports its broader, inclusive Arab traditions and historic defense of multiple and rich social communities. Syria’s famous pluralism was attacked by the NATO-sponsored terrorist groups, mainly Jabhat al Nusra and ISIS/DAESH, who abused minority communities while slaughtering anyone who backed the Damascus government.

The country remains under a severe US economic blockade, backed by the European Union, and subject to multiple foreign occupations. Repeated ‘chemical weapons of mass destruction’ scams, false flag massacres, fake claims of ‘freedom and democracy’, ‘moderate armed opposition’ slogans and the demonizing of President Assad were all part of a war to destroy, not just the Syrian government, but the Syrian state.

Dr. Al-Jaafari says that “from day one the Western strategy was based on making Syria a failed state”. That meant undermining Syria’s means of subsistence and strength – wheat, water, oil, the Tabqa dam, irrigation for agriculture, health systems and energy sources. “When you are a failed state, you lose your sovereignty; once you lose your sovereignty they can do to you whatever they want, because there is no state.”

“Our strength,” he says, “was to counter this strategy; and that is why they are extremely upset. We resisted their strategy and they failed It cost them trillions of dollars, eleven years of depriving the Syrian people of their basic needs. But they failed … We won the war, diplomatically speaking … militarily speaking, not yet”.

“The game is over … I think we preserved what is essential, we preserved the state, the country, the dignity, the independence and the political independence. It is costly yes, it has been so costly. But nowadays nobody says that we are wrong.”

Yet they do try to falsify history. If we look at the distorted ‘open source’ site Wikipedia we will see that ‘The Dirty War on Syria’ is listed as the ‘Syrian Civil War’. It is nothing of the sort. It is one of more than 20 proxy wars Washington has driven in the first two decades of this century.

Dr. Al-Jaafari points out that a UN sub-committee on Afghanistan’s Taliban in 2017 listed 101 countries as having exported terrorists to Syria. A number, like Indonesia, had governments friendly to Syria. On top of this, Israelis and the two largest NATO armies still occupy Syria. This is hardly a ‘civil war’.

Even though the Astana process (involving Russia, Iran and Turkey) has made some progress, by helping create ‘de-escalation zones’, Turkey under Erdogan has done tremendous damage to Syria. Dr Bashar says: “the Turkish policy has caused Syria and the Syrian people great damage, great damage.” On top of its support for the terrorist groups, the Turkish government has attacked critical civilian infrastructure.

Syria had an agreement with Turkey on sharing water which committed to passing 500 cubic meters per second, down the Euphrates. Yet for the last 10 years, “they have allowed less than half of this”, causing great damage to the electricity-generating Tabqa dam: “They did the same to a station in Al-Hasakah governate.”

So there have been chronic shortages of water for agriculture, as well as the theft of oil and wheat by the Americans. In Iraq, the situation is even worse. “Now the Iraqis walk in the [bed of the Tigris] river”.

Turkey is part of NATO and “is benefiting greatly from the American wrongdoings in the region… sharing benefits from the chaos that they themselves created.”

The Vice Minister made two points about aid and the refugees. He tells countries saying they want to provide ‘aid’: “We don’t need” your aid. He says Syria needs to rebuild its own capacities, reopening factories and creating employment.

He tells them “lift the sanctions so that the refugees can go back to their villages. “However these countries “know what they are doing … they spent millions of dollars on the refugees so that they don’t go back to their homeland.”

These foreign states use correct words about refugees having “dignified and safe” lives. But their programs serve to keep them forever in the camps. “They will not come back because they don’t have jobs and homes.”

Instead of spending billions of dollars on the refugees, Dr. Al-Jaafari aks, “why not give them all $10,000 each, enough to restart their lives back home? Why not pay them $10,000 once, instead of the same amount every year?”

What the enemies of Syria did to Syria “has gone beyond the threshold”, he says. “In my opinion, they did it … because we did not punish them for what they did in Iraq … that was the biggest mistake ever.”

Yet there have been great geopolitical changes in recent years. “The whole world is shifting”, he says, with the rise of BRICS, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), and other blocs. “The whole Asian part of the world” has given up on Western-dominated organizations like the WTO, the IMF and the World Bank.

“They don’t believe in that anymore and they want to create alternatives … let me say eastern alternatives, and this is very important.” The geopolitical center is shifting because the west has committed so many errors. This “might be a positive development, it might be a prelude to further confrontation, or it might be both.” In any case, he says, it is a sign that “enough is enough”.

Asked if Syria has applied to join the SCO, Dr. Al-Jaafari replies “of course, we submitted our request … recently.”

Ansarullah Leader: Yemeni Security Apparatus Frustrated Saudi-Led Coalition’s Conspiracies

September 17, 2022

By Staff, Agencies

The leader of Yemen’s popular Ansarullah resistance movement has hailed efforts and sacrifices being made by the country’s Ministry of Interior and security forces to maintain nationwide peace and stability, stressing that they have foiled fiendish plots developed by the Saudi regime and its regional allies.

“Apart from waging an atrocious military campaign [against Yemen] and massacring civilians, the Saudi-led coalition of aggression is making blatant attempts to undermine Yemen’s national security and stability,” Sayyed Abdul-Malik al-Houthi said on Thursday afternoon as he addressed a massive military parade in the capital Sanaa via video link.

He added, “The Saudi-led coalition recruits Takfiri extremists and other terrorists in order to implement its criminal plots such as explosions. Brutal acts of violence and appalling massacre of ordinary people by Takfiri terrorists would be a common occurrence of the Yemeni nation’s lives if the enemy had managed to advance it plots.”

“Thanks to the grace of God and efforts being made by the Ministry of Interior and security forces, the Saudi-led alliance has failed to achieve any of its goals,” Sayyed al-Houthi pointed out.

He emphasized that “Security is our top priority, and the Yemeni Ministry of Interior is working within the framework of its duties to support the nation and maintain security and stability.”

The Ansarullah chief went on to say, “The Saudi-led coalition has spared no effort to target Yemeni security institutions, which serve the nation, guarantee its security and defend the country. The Saudi-led coalition has recurrently targeted Yemen’s infrastructure. This is while Yemeni security forces have withstood all these wicked bids, and are now more powerful and efficient.”

“It is of paramount significance for the Yemeni nation and the Ministry of Interior to have a strong relationship as it will help the latter to successfully perform its duties.

“Our message to the enemy in this military parade is that its efforts to infiltrate into Yemen’s security apparatus have dismally failed,” Sayyed al-Houthi highlighted.

“Security and stability are the legitimate rights of all Yemenis. Enemies’ plots against our nation’s security expose the extent of their hostile goals. We warn enemies about their conspiracies against the Yemeni nation and the country’s security and stability,” the Ansarullah leader said.

“Yemen’s security is highly beneficial to all its neighboring countries and Muslim nations. We are ready for security cooperation agreements for the benefit of our nations,” Sayyed al-Houthi concluded.

Saudi Arabia launched the devastating war on Yemen in March 2015 in collaboration with its Arab allies and with arms and logistics support from the US and other Western states.

The US-backed Saudi-led aggression on Yemen has caused the martyrdom of hundreds of thousands of Yemenis and spawned the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

Contemporary Zionism pursues its assigned role as an advanced military and intelligence base of Anglo-American, European imperialism – Part II

The Partition of Palestine to establish a Zionist Military Base in the Arab world; the Partition of Korea and the Partition of the Indian Subcontinent are an extension of the same strategy to set back National Liberation Movements in these regions.

Contemporary Zionism pursues it assigned role as an advanced military and intelligence base of Anglo-American, European imperialism – Part II

The Zionist Israeli colonial-settler, apartheid, military and Intelligence project, was part of the new strategy for control of resource-rich regions of the world, implemented through British, American, and European policy, even as National Liberation Movements in Asia, Africa, and in the Arab world began freeing their countries from British, French and European colonial rule. The establishment of a Zionist military outpost in the Middle East to control adjacent regions was part of the new strategy for continuing colonial exploitation and occupation of several parts of the world by erstwhile colonial powers in collaboration with the United States, by partitioning countries they had earlier colonized, before their withdrawal, to establish proxy governments in various regions of the world, a different strategy to direct colonial rule. At the same time, the Indian Subcontinent was partitioned by the British collaborating with the pro-British comprador classes of different religious groups in India: Muslim, and Hindu, and a new country Pakistan created from this partition, another British project to establish theocratic states, immediately integrated into an Anglo-American Military pact against the Arab world, West Asia, the former USSR, and India. General Zia Ul Haq, then a brigadier in the Pakistan Army (later military dictator and President of Pakistan after a military coup) led a military expedition of Pakistan in 1970 to the Kingdom of Jordan allied with Britain, during what was known as ‘Black September’, to put down by military force the ‘Palestinian uprising’ in the West Bank of Palestine, leading to a massacre of Palestinians. In the Far East, Korea was partitioned by the United States, after the Korean war during which US forces used bio-weapons against the Korean people and its allies the Chinese Peoples’ Liberation Army, all cities of North Korea were destroyed. Thereafter a proxy government of the United States was placed in power in South Korea, a colonial adjunct of the United States in the region, and a US military base to dominate and control the Far East, apart from the US military bases in Japan, which exist till date, including for stationing of nuclear weapons platforms of the United States.

The latest example of the establishment of a US military base and colonization of a country in East Europe is Ukraine, after Victoria Nuland, then-Assistant Secretary of State under the administration of President Obama (presently Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs), led the United States ‘Maidan’ coup of 2014 in Ukraine, which was another Anglo-American- Zionist and NATO project to control the resources of the region, to destroy both Ukraine and the Russian Federation and economically setback Europe, by deliberately inciting war on Europe’s Eastern periphery by initiating genocidal attacks on Eastern and Southern Ukraine’s predominantly Russian population, and attempting to destroy their language and culture and encouraging Ukraine and concerned European governments to renege on the Minsk Agreement signed with Russia. Thereafter an all-out economic war was declared on the Russian Federation, with sanctions imposed on Russia’s oil and gas resources, on Russian shipping, banking, and all its financial institution, to financially strangulate the Russian Federation, to control Russia’s trade in energy resources, in food and other commodities; the key to control several economies, the whole of Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America; and if necessary expand this into a Third World War for the Imperialist restructuring of the world, as earlier by the Second World War. Zionism is a global Imperial Military project integrated with Anglo-American Imperialism and NATO’s wars of aggression and internal subversion in Palestine, in the Arab world,  in Iran, and worldwide, including in Ukraine.

The second reason for the failure by Jurists with exceptions, to examine the real nature of Zionism and the Zionist project of “Israel”, was the touching faith of many jurists in the United Nations and its resolutions, including of the Security Council and General Assembly and other organizations, instead of an objective and critical approach to resolutions and decisions of all UN bodies and instrumentalities. No institution national or international can be above scrutiny or is infallible. This approach led to the flawed academic tendency to accept decisions of all United Nations organizations as ‘gospel’ or ‘divine’ truth. Consequently, there was an ideological disinclination to examine the validity of the United Nations Palestine Partition Resolution of 1947 which led to the establishment of the Zionist entity of “Israel” in 1948, controlled by the financial and banking elite of the Anglo-Saxon-Zionist world, in their own interests. The 1947 Partition of Palestine Resolution was a violation of International Law. Palestinian territory was forcibly seized from the people of Palestine by Jewish European settlers, facilitated through the instrumentality of the British Mandate over Palestine, in reality, British colonial occupation. The Palestine Partition Resolution of 1947 was a violation of the right of Self-Determination of the Palestinian Arab people and a violation of General Assembly Resolutions on National Liberation Movements and anti-Colonial struggles of the people of Asia, Africa and South America among other regions. From the legal and political perspective, there was no basis for the 1947 Partition Resolution. The British Mandate over Palestine was ending and in accordance with International Law and De-colonization, it was necessary for Palestine to revert to the political control of the Indigenous Arab people of Palestine, subjugated by British occupation and colonial rule. For the United Nations to give legitimacy to the European Zionist Jewish Settler project, was a decision promoting European-settler colonization in Palestine, in violation of declared International Law on De-colonization and National Self-Determination, and to repeat in Palestine, what had taken place in past centuries in the United States of America, in Canada, in Australia, in New Zealand, in South Africa, in South West Africa, in South America, among other regions of the world; where ‘neo-Europes’ and European civilization were forcibly transplanted into alien soil, to perpetuate European occupation and colonization and the seizure of land and resources of vast continents exterminating the Indigenous people in a colonial holocaust not of 6 million, but of hundreds of millions worldwide including in India and China, with no reparation till date.

The United Nations Charter is an International Treaty. The United Nations was not established as per its declared objectives to perpetuate a Zionist European Jewish Colonial-Settler and a ‘Racist and Apartheid’ Israeli Regime, massacring Palestinians, and waging a continuous war both on the people of Palestine in the West Bank, Gaza, and other Palestinian territories occupied by “Israel”, and expansionist wars of aggression on its Arab neighbors, to achieve the Zionist objective of dominating the region and seizing all resources, including land and water reservoirs of Palestine and river waters of neighboring states of Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon, including in the Syrian Golan Heights, the Jordan river and Sea of Galilee; with no other justification than the Zionist self-propagated Racist theory of a superior or ‘Chosen People ’, causing widespread ecological devastation from the overuse of waters of the region. “Israel’s” policy is a continuous project for militarization and weaponization of the region against Palestinians, all “Israel’s” neighbors, and beyond against other countries in the wider region and adjacent continents; and includes a covert nuclear weapons program, while destroying peaceful nuclear energy projects of neighboring Arab states of Iraq and Syria; threatening the Iranian Nuclear Energy program, assassinating Iranian scientists, generals and military officers in Iran and in Syria, Iraq, and Lebanon, that is in countries who have military co-operation agreements with Iran. “Israel” has stealthily infected Iranian facilities with the ‘Stuxnet Virus’ or computer worm to disrupt operations, and resisted all proposals for a ‘Nuclear –Free Zone’ for this entire region including for “Israel”. In a new Quad has been established for the Middle East, of the USA, India, “Israel” and the UAE, a so-called “Indo-Abrahamic” Bloc similar to the Quad of the ‘Indo-Pacific’ a strategic alliance of the US, Japan, India and Australia to counter China which is unlikely to be welcomed by the Arab street, which sees such an alliance which includes the United States and “Israel”, as a threat to the military and economic sovereignty of the Arab world and its energy resources, as this West Asia Quad in its statement refers to focus on joint investments in the region, in” water, energy, transportation, space, health and food security, etc. directly related to economic sovereignty of governments and the people of the region . President Joe Biden of the United States and Prime Minister Yair Lapid of “Israel” also signed a joint declaration on the state of the ‘strategic partnership’ between the two countries, which is in fact a military and strategic pact targeting Iran, purportedly to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. In reality, there is a military pact to threaten Iran as a possible prelude to incite a wider war in the region like in Ukraine in furtherance of NATO economic and military hegemony against the Multi-polar world order emerging.

The ongoing genocide of the Palestinian people, the US-UK led Coalition’s repeated wars of aggression on Iraq, to which Ukraine contributed a military contingent as part of the coalition after the invasion of 2003; the US and NATO-led ISIS/Daesh/Jabhat Al-Nusra and their front organizations’ attacks in Syria, Iraq, and Lebanon; the successive Israeli wars of aggression on Syria and Lebanon, and earlier on Jordan and Egypt; Israeli military advisers directing and participating in the war of aggression waged on Yemen are all the direct consequence of the powerful Zionist and Israeli lobbies of the United States, UK, France, among other NATO countries, controlling resources of the region, assisting in the expansionist military objectives of the state of “Israel”, the military and intelligence outpost of NATO.

قائد جهادي كبير يروي عن استعدادات المقاومة للحرب: هدفنا تدمير جيش العدو وسينتشـلون الجثث من تحت ركام المدن

(خاص الأخبار) إسرائيل تنتظر شتاء النار

ابراهيم الأمين 

 لدى المقاومة قدرات غير موجودة حتى في ايران
 لن يجرؤ الأميركيون على القتال ضدنا لأن ذكرى الثمانينيات حاضرة في أذهانهم

هو ليس آخر الأحياء من جيل المقاومين المؤسسين. بل واحد من قلّة لم يدر في خلدها، قبل أربعين عاماً، أن تعيش أكثر من أربعين يوماً. واحد من ثلّة تعرف لبنان القديم الخاضع والناس المقهورين بسبب الاستعمار وتوابعه. لكنه صار لاعباً في بناء لبنان آخر لم يكتمل قيامه بعد: لبنان القوة والعدالة والقادر على الانتقال بالمنطقة الى واقع جديد.

هو واحد من جيل سمع الحكايات عن نضالات واجهت الاستعمار الفرنسي والتدخلات الخارجية. وعندما اجتاح العدو لبنان في حزيران عام 1982، لم يكن يشعر بالوحدة القاتلة، ولا بالغربة التي تكبّله وتجعله عاجزاً عن الفعل. فهو واحد ممن عاشوا لحظة خفقان راية الجهاد التي رفعها الإمام الخميني عندما أصدر فتواه بوجوب قتال إسرائيل ومواجهتها بكل ما يمكن.

انقر على الصورة لتكبيرها

في ذكرى أربعينية المقاومة، ليس هناك من هو قادر على جمع الصورة مثله. قائد جهادي. تعرّف على الحرب وفنون القتال، ولو أنه لم يشارك في الحرب الأهلية. وتأثّر، كأبناء جيله من سكان أحزمة البؤس، بخطب الإمام السيد موسى الصدر. وبعد انتصار الثورة الإسلامية في إيران، وجد نفسه مقبلاً على أمر آخر. فزاد انخراطه في العمل الجهادي ضمن حدود ضيقة. جمعته مع رفاقه المؤسسين، من الشهداء والأحياء، علاقات صداقة وأخوّة والصلاة في المسجد الذي كان الرابط الأوّل والأهم بينهم، والتعرف على واقع المقاومة الفلسطينية والأحزاب التي تقاتل في لبنان. حتى صار مع رفاقه مجموعة تعرف الكثير عما يجري، وتربطها علاقات وصلات مكّنتها في لحظة الاجتياح من تحويل نداء الإمام الخميني للقتال، الى فعل له إطار تنظيمي وليد. لكنه فعل لم يكن القائمون به يفتشون له عن عنوان أو اسم أو راية. وعندما تعرّضوا للمرة الأولى لسؤال عن هويّتهم، سادهم الإرباك، قبل أن يجيب القائد الجهادي نفسه سائله: «نحن الخمينيون»!
على مر عقود أربعة، كان لهذا القائد دوره الميداني المباشر، منذ قتال اللحظة الأولى في خلدة. وهو واحد ممن رافقوا كل الذين تولّوا قيادة المقاومة. كان، ولا يزال، شريكاً أساسياً في قراءة الواقع وتحضير لوازم الحرب والاستعداد لفعل نوعي متى حانت لحظة الحرب الكبرى.
في لقاء مع «الأخبار»، يروي القائد الجهادي عن رحلة المقاومة، وعن العمل الذي لم يتوقف منذ 14 آب 2006، ليس فقط في سياق بناء قوة قادرة على صدّ أي عدوان جديد وتدميره بالكامل، بل إلى أبعد من ذلك بكثير لتصل إلى القدرة على الهجوم وما بعده. وهي ورشة لم تترك أمراً للصدفة. واستندت الى مبدأ أن كل ما تحتاج إليه المقاومة يجب العمل على توفيره، سواء عبر الأصدقاء والحلفاء، أو من خلال برنامج إنتاج ذاتي أو حتى من مصادر بعيدة.
خلال 16 عاماً، انتقلت المقاومة الى مستوى جديد ومختلف جذرياً عما كانت عليه عام 2006. مشاركة مجموعة كبيرة من كوادرها وعناصرها في مواجهة التكفيريين في سوريا والعراق، منحتهم خبرات كبيرة، وخصوصاً أن هذه المواجهة شهدت تنفيذ مناورات وتصورات عن مواجهات محتملة مع العدو، واختبار التنسيقات العسكرية بين الفرق والاختصاصات، وأمكن خلالها التعرف على تكنولوجيا وأسلحة جديدة، وتم تحصيل كميات كبيرة من الأسلحة النوعية التي وضعت في خدمة برامج المقاومة. أما العنصر المركزي الإضافي، فلم يتمثل فقط في رفع قدرات العاملين في التشكيلات العسكرية، بل في مستوى جديد من العمل الأمني والاستخباري من نوعيات تشبه ما تقوم به دول كبيرة. حتى وصلنا الى مرحلة تعرف فيها المقاومة عن العدو أكثر بكثير مما يعرف هو عنها، وهي علامة فارقة سيكون لها دورها في أي حرب مقبلة مع إسرائيل. «وربما يأتي اليوم الذي نخبرهم فيه ابتداءً عمّا يوجد في قاعة «شرفة غولدا» داخل ديمونا».

الاستعداد الدائم
يقول القائد الجهادي إن المقاومة في سباق دائم مع العدو منذ توقف إطلاق النار في 14 آب 2006 وحتى يومنا هذا، «وخصوصاً أن المهمة الجديدة التي ألقيت على عاتقنا بعد الحرب تركزت على بناء القدرة النوعية القادرة على تدمير الجيش الإسرائيلي، وليس فقط منعه من تحقيق أهدافه». ويضيف: «منذ انتهاء حرب تموز حتى اليوم، نعرف، بدقة، أن كل التقييم الذي قام به العدو ينتهي الى خلاصة بأننا متقدّمون عليه في مجالات لم يكن يعتقد أننا وصلنا فيها الى مراحل متقدمة. ومنذ صدور تقرير «فينوغراد» حول الحرب، مروراً بكل المناورات الكبرى، حتى مناورة مركبات النار الأخيرة، كان العدو يصل الى خلاصة مفادها أننا متقدمون عليه، رغم سعيه الدائم لمعالجة الثغرات لديه».
ويوضح: «يتصرف العدو، على سبيل المثال، بين فترة وأخرى، على أساس أنه يعرف مستوى التسليح المتوافر لدينا. لكنه يكتشف لاحقاً أن المستوى الموجود لدينا أعلى وأكبر. نعرف أن هناك أموراً كان العدو يكتشفها بجهوده الاستخبارية. لكنّ هناك أموراً أخرى كنا نحن من يبادر الى الكشف عنها، ويحصل ذلك بأشكال مختلفة».

الأسلحة الدقيقة
عملت المقاومة، بعد عام 2000، على تطوير البنية الصاروخية بهدف الردع من جهة، وإيذاء العدو من جهة أخرى. كانت إسرائيل تعمل على عدّاد لإحصاء ما تفترض أنه موجود كمّاً في حوزة المقاومة، ثمّ تطوّر عملها لتحديد النوعية أيضاً. ويقول القائد الجهادي: «أخيراً، اكتشف العدو أن الأسلحة الدقيقة التي في حوزة المقاومة لم تصل إلينا في الوقت الذي اكتشف فيه الأمر، بل تأكد بأنها كانت عندنا قبل ذلك». ويضيف: «يحق للعدو أن يعيش حالة من الرعب بناءً على ما يعلمه فقط، فكيف الحال بما لا يعلمه». ويشرح: «عندما كان العدو يهدد بأنه إذا أصبح لدى حزب الله 20 صاروخاً دقيقاً فسيتحرّك ولن يسكت. كان لدينا المئات، وقد علم بذلك لاحقاً وصمت وأخفى ذيله واختبأ. وعندما اكتشف أن لدينا مئات من الصواريخ الدقيقة وتأكّد من ذلك، كان من حقه أن يعتقد أن ما لدينا تجاوز الآلاف.

وعندما كشف خطته العملانية لمنع وصول السلاح، قال سماحة السيد له بصراحة إن الأمر انتهى والسلاح وصل. وكذلك الأمر عندما تحدث عن برنامج لمنع تطوير القدرات لدى المقاومة، فخرج السيد ليقول له من جديد إننا نصنع أسلحتنا ومستعدون لبيع السلاح النوعي من صواريخ ومسيّرات، وهذا فيه دلالة على قدرتنا على الإنتاج».
في هذا السياق، يلفت القائد الجهادي الى أن «من حق العدو الافتراض بأن لدى المقاومة – على صعيد سلاح المسيّرات مثلاً – كل ما لدى إيران. لكن الحقيقة الكبرى هي أن لدى المقاومة في لبنان قدرات تتناسب مع حاجاتها، وهي قدرات غير موجودة حتى في الجمهورية الإسلامية».
وفي اعتقاد القائد الجهادي، فإن المعركة مع العدو «لم تتوقف رغم كل الظروف، ولن تتوقف في يوم من الأيام. العدو يدرك هذه الحقيقة، وهو يسعى جاهداً من أجل عدم الوصول إلى الحرب، لأنه إذا أوصلَنا إلى الحرب فسنخوضها بقوّة، وستكون مدمّرة له بكل ما للكلمة من معنى، ولن يستطيع مواجهة حزب الله في كل الميادين. وإذا كان يهددنا بالدمار كعادته دائماً، فإننا نؤكّد أن الدمار في الكيان سيكون أكبر مما يتصوّر. على العدو أن يعلم أن الحرب مع حزب الله تعني هذه المرة تدمير البنية التحتية للكيان الإسرائيلي، بما يحوّل حياة المستوطنين الى جحيم حقيقي لا يمكنهم العيش فيه تحت النيران والدمار. نحن على يقين بأن العدو سيعمل على سحب الجثث من تحت الأنقاض خلال الحرب. هذا لم يجرّبه هو وشعبه من قبل».

ويضيف بثقة عالية: «الجيش الإسرائيلي لا يمكنه حماية البحر عنده، وهو غير قادر على حماية منشآته الحيوية ولا حتى على حماية الحدود البرية، ولا يستطيع حماية الجبهة الداخلية من القصف، حتى إنه لا يستطيع حماية نفسه. هذا يؤدي الى خلاصة بأن العدو فقد القدرة الدفاعية، فكيف الحال واسم جيش هو «جيش الدفاع»، ما يعني أنه فقد علّة وجوده. وعندما يصبح فاقداً للقدرة الدفاعية، وهو فاقد أصلاً لحافزية الهجوم، فهذا يعني أنه أصبح جيشاً بلا قيمة، ويمكن التجرؤ عليه. ولذلك نقول بأنه في الحرب التي ستحصل بالتأكيد، يعلم الجيش الإسرائيلي علم اليقين أنه غير قادر على حماية السفن التي يفترض أن تدخل الى الموانئ الفلسطينية، فضلاً عن حماية السفن الحربية. كما يعلم أنه في اللحظة التي تقع فيها الحرب، لن نخوض حرباً دفاعية. لأول مرة في تاريخها، سيكون على إسرائيل الدفاع عن نفسها في أراضي 1948. نعلم أن العدو يخطط لإخلاء المناطق الحدودية بعمق 5 كلم على الحدود، وهذا بحد ذاته نعتبره انسحاباً مسبقاً، فكيف والعدو يعلم علم اليقين بأن كل مرابضه ومواقعه ستكون ضمن نيران المقاومة».
وبحسب تقديرات القائد الجهادي «أكثر جهة لا تريد الحرب، هي الجيش الإسرائيلي نفسه، لأن المستوى العسكري يعرف أن إسرائيل استمدت قوتها من حالة التفرقة في محيطها، ومن قدرتها على الاستفراد بالجبهات واحدة بواحدة. لكن الصورة باتت اليوم معكوسة. القيادة الإسرائيلية والجيش بالتحديد يعرفان أن إسرائيل كيان مصطنع جمعت أوصاله في لحظة ضعف وخيانة وفرض على الشعب الفلسطيني الذي ترك وحده، وحاول هذا الكيان الصمود والبقاء والتوسّع بوهم الجيش الذي لا يقهر وبحماية خارجية (متعددة الأشكال). اليوم، الصورة معكوسة بالكامل». ويضيف إن الفرق هو أن ما تواجهه إسرائيل اليوم «مقاومة فرضت عليه خياراتها. وقد تجمعت اليوم مقاومات وشعوب على قتال إسرائيل مع الشعب الفلسطيني. إسرائيل اليوم تخاف من المقاومة. وهي تعيش خلافات داخلية لم يكن لها مثيل من قبل. بينما تقابلها مقاومة ذات عزم وإرادة قوية للقتال. وإسرائيل تعمل وفق خطة دفاعية لحماية نفسها وهي منكشفة أمام المقاومة التي تحضّر نفسها للهجوم عليها».

مستعدون لكل الخيارات بما فيها التعامل مع كل من يوفر دعماً لإسرائيل


وبحسب القائد الجهادي، فإن من المفيد تذكير الناس بمقولات رُدّدت منذ سنوات بعيدة وتصرّف معها الجميع باستخفاف. ويوضح: «أطلق سماحة الشهيد السيد عباس الموسوي مقولة إسرائيل سقطت. لم يفهم الكثير من الأصدقاء، فضلاً عن الأعداء، معنى كلمته حتى انسحبت إسرائيل، ولم تكن واقفة بل بفعل سقوطها. بينما نقول اليوم وبكل صراحة إن إسرائيل تفككت وهي تسير إلى الانهيار، والذي يفصلنا عنه هو الزمن والحرب فقط، ولن يوقف انهيارها شيء على الإطلاق. وكل من ربط نفسه بإسرائيل سينهار معها، لأن كل الموازين اليوم معكوسة».
ويؤكد القائد الجهادي أن «أي حرب ستندلع معنا ستكون هذه نتيجتها، فكيف إذا لم نكن وحدنا. وفي حال اندلاع الحرب الواسعة، ستكون فصائل المقاومة الفلسطينية شريكة في المعركة، وسيتحرك الشعب الفلسطيني، وكذلك الحال في مناطق 1948، وهذا سيكون وبالاً على العدو الذي سيكون أمام خيارين: إما أن يذهب لتحمّل الأثمان الكبيرة والدموية، ثم يوقف الحرب مرغماً خاسراً، وهذا ما لا يحتمله، وإما إيقاف الحرب تحت نيران المقاومة منذ البداية».

احتمالية توسع الحرب
في الفرضيات العسكرية القائمة، يجري الحديث عن احتمالية حصول إسرائيل على دعم خاص من أميركا وغيرها، وأنه مثلما تستعد قوى المقاومة لأن تكون في جبهة واحدة فإن إسرائيل لن تترك وحيدة في المعركة. والمقاومة مستعدة لكل الخيارات، بما فيها كيفية التعامل مع كل من يوفر دعماً لإسرائيل، علماً بأن المعنيّين بشؤون الحرب مع العدو يعرفون أنه في الأيام العشرة الأخيرة من حرب تموز 2006، لم يستعن العدوّ بذخائر إضافية من الولايات المتحدة فقط، بل بخبراء أيضاً.

لن نخوض حرباً دفاعية ولأول مرة سيكون على إسرائيل الدفاع عن نفسها

ووصل به الأمر الى أن يستعين بطيارين أميركيين لمساعدة القوة الجوية الإسرائيلية وطياريها المنهكين بفعل الحرب التي فشلوا فيها، وهذا ما أخفوه عن العموم لكن ليس عنا». لكن، بحسب القائد الجهادي، «الأمر مختلف اليوم. نحن نعتقد بأن الأميركيين لن يجرؤوا على القتال المباشر الى جانب العدو، وهم ينعشون ذاكرتهم دائماً بما حلّ بقواتهم بين عامَي 1983 و1984».

اللحظة الحاسمة
«يعمل عقل المقاومة وفق قواعد ثابتة. وتتصرّف قيادتها وفق أسس ربما لا تكون مفهومة لدى العدو أو لدى آخرين لا يعرفون من نحن». يقول القائد الجهادي: «يجب على الجميع أن يعرفوا عنا أموراً تعكس حقيقتنا، وهي أمور لا تتعلق فقط بالقدرات، بل تخصّ عقيدتنا، وفكرة أننا نتبع ولاية الله الممتدة والمتّصلة بالنبي محمد، هي فكرة جوهرية في طريقة تفكيرنا وتصرفنا وتجعلنا متمرسين في ترجمة شعار هيهات منا الذلة».
ويشدد القائد الجهادي على ضرورة استعادة قول خاص للسيد عباس الموسوي عندما خاطب العدو يوماً بأنه «رأى بعض بأسنا وسيأتي اليوم الذي سيرى فيه كلّ بأسنا، وهذا اليوم آتٍ لا محالة، وهو ما يخشاه العدو الإسرائيلي. لذلك فإنه بعدما كان يفاخر أمام شعبه بأعماله مقابل أعدائه، فإنه اليوم يخفي عن شعبه الحقائق معنا، حتى لا يصيبه الانهيار قبل الحرب. بينما تعرف قيادة المقاومة قوّتها وحقيقتها وتعرف قوّة عدوّها وضعفه وحقيقته، وتعمل وفق معايير وموازين ومعادلات وقواعد ثابتة وواضحة وحكيمة وشجاعة لم يعهد العدو مواجهتها من قبل».
ويضيف: «الكيان بكل ما فيه نراقبه ونعرفه. الإسرائيلي يعتقد أنه يعلم كل شيء عنا، ويعتقد أنه يتفوّق علينا استخباريّاً. وكم من مرة تركنا العدو أسير معطياته واعتقاده. لكن، في كل مرة يكون هناك استحقاق، يكتشف العدو أنه جاهل بنا وبما عندنا. كمثال بسيط، في الفترة بين 2000 و2006، مرت 6 سنوات أثمرت ما حصل في حرب تموز وهو معلوم لديه. فكيف بعدما مرت 16 سنة على حرب تموز، ليعلم أن نتيجتها شيء آخر تماماً. العدو يعرف أن لدينا قدرات استخبارية نعرف من خلالها ما يفعله الآن، وما كان يفعله قبلاً، وما سيفعله لاحقاً، لأننا بتنا نفهم جيداً كيف يتصرف العقل الإسرائيلي».

نعرف عن العدوّ أكثر مما يعرف عنّا وقد نخبره عما في قاعة «شرفة غولدا» في ديمونا


وفي هذا السياق، يقول القائد الجهادي إن العدو «يعلم أننا نستفيد من أي فرصة، وأنه في حال ارتكاب أي خطأ، سنوجّه له ضربة كبيرة تجبره على عدم التفكير في مهاجمة لبنان. قد تكون مسألة ترسيم الحدود البحرية واحدة من هذه الفرص. وإذا فكر العدو بأي ردّ فعل، فسنردّ عليه مباشرة، وهذه تشكّل معضلة له. وهم يتذكّرون أنه عندما جاء الدبلوماسي الأميركي ديفيد ساترفيلد مهدداً بضرب موقع لنا في البقاع، تبلّغنا أمراً من سماحة السيد حسن بأن نجهّز صواريخنا، وعندما نسمع – مجرد أن نسمع – بضربة إسرائيلية، يطلب منا أن نضرب أهدافاً محددة مسبقاً على الفور ومن دون العودة الى القيادة. ولو وقع الهجوم، كان سيسقط للعدو عشرات القتلى. علمت إسرائيل لاحقاً بهذا. وحتى في عملية المسيّرات الأخيرة، نحن من تعمّد القيام بخطوات تجعل العدو يتعرّف على الطائرات المسيّرة. وإلا نحن قادرون على الدخول والخروج من دون معرفته وبهدوء كما فعلنا مراراً».
ويختم القائد الجهادي الكبير: «حديثنا اليوم عن الماضي وعن تجارب العدو معنا وأحداث الساعة، لكن الذي يترقّبه العدو ليس ما يجري وما هو معلوم بل ما خفي عنه، لأنه سيصنع ما سيحدث لاحقاً. كما أن هاجس العدو وخوفه هو علمه بحقيقة ما سيصيبه من جرّاء ما يعلم، وكابوسه ورعبه الحقيقي هو جهله بما سيصيبه من خلال ما لا يعلم، ويحاول معالجة ضعفه وجهله قبل الحرب لأنه لن يستطيع معالجة شيء لا في الحرب ولا بعدها إن وقعت».

Iran Captures Hardened Terrorist Accused of Criminal Conduct Abroad

August 19, 2022

By Staff, Agencies

The Iranian Intelligence Ministry said its forces have arrested a notorious terrorist who has committed a litany of terrorist activities in regional countries, including Syria.

In a statement released on Wednesday, the ministry said its forces have captured a hardened and dangerous terrorist who had been involved in terrorist operations in foreign countries.

According to the statement, the arrestee has taken part in terrorist activities in four countries of the region, had joined Takfiri-terrorist groups in Syria at the height of the crisis in the Arab country, and had committed criminal acts in the cities of Aleppo, Hama, and Idlib.

After the defeat of Takfiri terrorists in Syria, the “member of the ring of cross-border terrorism,” who is also an expert in heavy weapons, shifted his criminal activities to two neighbors of Iran and joined another terrorist group with criminal records against the unity of the Islamic community to continue with acts of sabotage against the Iranian nation and its territorial integrity, the statement added.

Earlier this month, the Intelligence Ministry arrested ten members of Daesh [the Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIL’/’ISIS’ group] who had plans to carry out acts of terrorism targeting mourning ceremonies marking the martyrdom anniversary of third Shia Imam Hussein [AS].

Hezbollah Sets Equation after Another against ’Israel’ in Lebanon, the Region

 August 16, 2022 

By Mohammad Youssef

The 14th of August 2006 observes the 16th anniversary of the divine victory that was achieved after the thirty-three-day war between the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon and the ‘Israeli’ occupation forces.

Every year, most of the Lebanese, along with many millions of Arabs, Muslims, and free people, celebrate the event all over the world.

Ever since this victory materialized, the ‘Israelis’ have been studying the impact of their shameful defeat. The strategic consequences that followed made a major shift and came to put the temporary ‘Israeli’ entity into a completely different situation at a very fragile and vulnerable time. On the contrary, the Islamic Resistance has become a remarkable major force in Lebanon and the region and one of the most important non-state players in the whole world.

The Islamic Resistance did not only achieve a victory but also presented itself as a role model that could be emulated in the region and the entire world.

More importantly, since its advent, Hezbollah has been able to make new equations against the ‘Israeli’ enemy. This new victory presented the party as a major force in Lebanon and the region that is capable of making the achievements at every remarkable event.

The July War victory by Hezbollah ushered in a new era as it has consolidated Hezbollah’s role and capability as one of the major strategic equation-makers in Lebanon and the Arab world against the ‘Israeli’ enemy.

The first equation Hezbollah achieved through the resistance was the equation of deterrence against the enemy hostilities and aggressions. This equation has been achieved since the mid-eighties.

The second equation was that of protection after the two wars in the nineties, namely the July 1993 War that the enemy called it “Operation Accountability,” and the April 1996 War, which the ‘Israelis’ called “Grapes of Wrath” war. Hezbollah succeeded in formulating a very protective deterrent equation which enabled the party to launch retaliatory attacks against the enemies in case of targeting the civilians.

The third equation the party achieved had been developed over the years starting by the day of liberation on the 25th of May 2000 until the year 2006. It was an equation that we might be able to call “balance of horror.”

The ‘Israelis’ feared attacking Lebanon or targeting the civilians for six years until 2006, the year that witnessed the thirty-three-day July war. This war was destined to end with a divine victory on Lebanon’s side.

Ever since, Hezbollah has been accumulating military power, technical efficiency, and unrivaled expertise about the ‘Israelis.’ For their part, the ‘Israelis’ have admitted that Hezbollah is not only a strategic threat for their entity, but also an existential one.

Nowadays and after all this time, and after the resistance has been able to live up to all the challenges, Hezbollah went into another complicated and more dangerous war against the takfiris in Syria and was able to win another divine victory against the takfiris in 2017 in what came to be known as the second liberation.

Egypt Church Fire: 18 Children Among 41 People Killed

August 15, 2022 

By Staff, Agencies

At least 18 children lost their lives in a fire that killed dozens of worshippers gathered for Sunday morning mass at a church in Giza, greater Cairo.

The toll stands at 41 dead and 14 injured, Egypt’s Coptic Church said in a statement, citing health officials. Hospital documents obtained by CNN show the children were ages 3 to 16.

The fire started at about 9 am local time due to an electrical failure in an air conditioning unit on the church’s second floor, Egypt’s Interior Ministry said. The small church is located in the highly populated Imbaba neighborhood.

Most of the deaths and injuries were caused by smoke inside church classrooms after the electrical failure, the ministry said in a Facebook post.

At least two officers and three civil protection service members were injured responding to the fire, the ministry said.

Church officials also believe the fire was accidental, said Coptic Church spokesperson Archpriest Moussa Ibrahim, adding a priest was among those killed.

Egypt’s Coptic community and churches have been a target of religious-based violence and attacks historically, with persecution and discrimination spiking since the toppling of Hosni Mubarak’s regime in 2011.

Copts are the largest Christian community in the Middle East, making up at least 10 million of Egypt’s 103 million people.

Egypt has suffered several deadly fires in recent years.
