التحرير الثاني

أسرار التحرير الثاني - الحلقة التاسعة - المشاة بالمشاة | شبكة برامج قناة  المنار

تعيدنا حلقات الوثائقي الحربي الذي تبثه قناة المنار تحت عنوان “التحرير الثاني” الى تلك المرحلة الحرجة التي عاشها لبنان مع سيطرة الجماعات الإرهابية على الجرود الشرقية، وتحويلها الى نقطة انطلاق للانتحاريين والسيارات المفخخة والصواريخ نحو عدد من المناطق اللبنانية.

في هذا الوثائقي يكتشف كل لبناني حجم ما قدّمته المقاومة من تضحيات وهو يشهد مغادرة الشهداء كي يتحقق الأمن لأبناء وطنهم ويكتشفون معهم هؤلاء القادة وقدراتهم وصبرهم وووعيهم وكفاءاتهم وشجاعتهم وتنظيمهم فيفخر كل شريف وحر بانتمائه إليهم وامتلاك بلده لهذه القوة التي توفر مع الجيش حماية لبنان من المخاطر.

لا يحتاج اللبناني أن يتفق سياسياً او عقائدياً مع حزب الله ليشعر بالفخر لما قدّمه مجاهدوه للبنان وهو يراهم لا يميزون في مهماتهم وتضحياتهم على أساس ديني او طائفي او عقائدي او حزبي، ويرى أنها تقدمات بلا مقابل ولا يشهد اي استثمار لها لتحسين الموقع السياسي او الطائفي للحزب.

سينتبه اللبنانيون أكثر لما شهدوه وشاهدوه عندما يعرفون حجم الاهتمام بين قادة كيان الاحتلال لما تبثه المنار وما يظهر من مؤهلات وكفاءات عسكرية تخطيطية وتنفيذية. وكيف أن قيادة الكيان واركان جيشه يقفون أمام هذه العمليات العسكرية بصفتها نموذجاً لما سيرونه بأم العين في مواجهات مقبلة في منطقة الجليل والجولان التي يعتبرها قادة جيش الاحتلال شبيهة بجغرافيا مناطق العمليات.

المناورات العسكرية الأخيرة لجيش الاحتلال أصيبت بالإحباط لتدني الروح المعنوية للضباط والجنود المشاركين، وفي التدقيق تبين أن الوثائقي لعب دوراً في هذا التدني المعنوي، وما بدّد استغراب قيادة جيش الاحتلال هو أنها لم تكن في قرارها بإجراء المناورات وعنوانها وموضوعها بعيدة عن هذا التأثر بالوثائقي.

The Anti-Terrorism Battle of Arsal: Lebanon’s Second Liberation

Have the Zionists Forgotten their Defeat in Joroud Arsal? The Joroud Victory In ’Israel’s’ Eyes: No One Can Stop Hezbollah

By Hussein Mortada

Have the Zionists forgotten their defeat in Joroud Arsal? The answer to this question is certainly not. Their wager in favor of the terrorists was so great that one of the most prominent “Israeli” military analysts wrote for the Haaretz newspaper in the summer of 2013 that

“Israel” no longer needs to fight in Lebanon. Hezbollah has drowned in the Syrian conflict and will not survive it.”

Everything was pointing to the inevitability of a major battle in the Joroud with a very important dimension. It was a disappointment for the Zionists. It was also the battle of the second victory in Joroud Arsal and Qalamoun.

It did not start in July 2017. It started with the beginning of the war against Syria in 2011. The plans of the countries leading the aggression and supporting the militants depended on the principle of seizing full control over the border areas. They would then use these areas as a springboard to invade resistance-held territory using terrorist ground forces with NATO-“Israeli”-Gulf support and planning.

Moving the battle into the home front to preoccupy the resistance and the Lebanese army was the beginning. The objective was to take control of and strike the resistance’s environment. Therefore, the battle of liberating Joroud is more significant than the July 2006 victory because it was an “Israeli” battle with an “Israeli” objective and “Israeli” tools even though the La Ilaha Illa Allah [No God except Allah] flag was raised. The resistance achieved more victories, including the Qusair victory, Talkalakh at the northern border, Syria’s Qalamoun, Joroug Arsal, Ras Baalbek and al-Qaa. The most dangerous objective of the terrorists and their backers was invading the central Bekaa up until the border with Lebanon’s Shebaa Farms. Of course, these areas along with occupied Palestine would have all been under the control of the terrorists and the countries backing them. Meanwhile, they would have secured a maritime access from Tripoli in Lebanon.

In short, this is the battle of the border. This is what the resistance thwarted in cooperation with the Syrian army. Meanwhile, the Lebanese army played an important role at the end of the battle.

According to what was planned, these terrorist groups were supposed to start with plan (B), which is besieging the resistance, paralyzing its movements and striking it in its environment. Here, we recall that part of this plan had been put in motion through the use of car bombs as well as identifying certain parties in Lebanon that conform to these plans and ideas. Here several obvious questions must be asked:

What if the Syrian army and the resistance had decided not to take action early on in order to thwart this project?

  • What if these groups were left alone along the border areas to blow up whatever they wanted and kill and kidnap whomever they wanted?

Based on this plan, which is even related to the nature of the battle with the Zionists, it was necessary to work on its failure and destruction, albeit in stages. Due to the nature of the battle that is also associated with some Syrian regions, the resistance adopted the policy of capturing and then dividing the regions and stages. Thus, the battle of Qusair coincided with Syria’s Qusair. The battle of Talkalakh at the northern border was associated with the Syrian Zara area, which was an important corridor used by militants to move between Lebanon and the Syrian depth. The battles went from Qalamaoun, to Yabroud, to al-Zabadani to the Joroud in order to besiege these groups in these areas.

All the preparations were completed to clear Lebanese areas of any terrorist – after these groups carried out several bombings and killed a number of Lebanese army soldiers. As in every victory, the Golden Triangle, the army, the people and the resistance, was present.

The resistance launched the Joroud operation to eliminate the last hope these groups had to move the battle inside Lebanon. It was a delicate and sensitive operation where politics overlapped with the military, geography and strategy. Therefore, the second liberation’s dimensions are equally important to the first victory over the Zionists in 2000.

The resistance and the Lebanese army, on the one hand, and the Syrian army and the resistance, on the other, caught the terrorists in Joroud in a pincer. Hence, full victory was achieved and the lands were returned to their owners. Security and stability prevailed across the whole of Lebanon despite its complex geography. Thus, Lebanon was on a date with a great victory.

Have the Zionists Forgotten their Defeat in Joroud Arsal?

Al-Ahed Website

Beirut – The shock was evident on the face of “Israel’s” former war minister, Avigdor Lieberman. After days of censoring media and military institutions when it came to Hezbollah’s 2007 military campaign to liberate Lebanon’s eastern Joroud, the man was unable to admit the impact of the defeat. Hezbollah had liberated the Joroud from the terror of “Israel’s” agents, the Nusra Front and Daesh.

From the heart of Tel Aviv, Lieberman called on the units of the military headquarters to prepare for various scenarios, warning that “the next conflict with Lebanon will also include Syria.”

Amid a flurry of confusion, the chief of the “Israeli” military and security establishment spoke about the unity of the fronts and directed threats at both Lebanon and Syria.

“If we talk about the Lebanese front, there is no such front anymore. There will be one front that includes Syria and Lebanon together: Hezbollah, the Assad regime and all those collaborating with the Assad regime,” he said.

All the analysis aside, Lebanon heard the message clearly. The cohesion between the Lebanese army and the resistance deprived the concerned parties in “Israel” of their sleep.

“The Lebanese army has become an integral part of Hezbollah’s strength and is under its leadership. The Lebanese army has lost its independence and has become an integral part of Hezbollah’s strength,” Lieberman stressed.

Going with the saying, ‘thanks to the recognition of the enemy’, Hezbollah succeeded in creating another cause for concern along the “Israeli” front.

The enemy’s observers were surprised by the speed with which the victory was achieved. According to Maariv, “the battles of the eastern Joroud in Lebanon are sending a clear message to three heads: “Israel”, the United States and Saudi Arabia. The message implied that the group is very capable of defending itself against all threats. Its combat skills are growing with time.”

For its part, the “Israeli” website Nzivnet published a special report explaining the exact course of the battles.

“Hezbollah is engaged in fierce battles in Joruod Arsal including artillery shelling and even close quarter combat. Hezbollah can be seen working as a trained army that operates heavy machinery such as armored personnel carriers, artillery, mortars shells and others. Meanwhile, the Radwan force – the force assigned to occupy the Galilee in the next war with “Israel” – carries out complex commando operation such as taking control of isolated places and caves,” the site reported.

“Hezbollah does not appear to be a guerrilla organization that “Israel” knew in the 90s and the beginning of the third millennium,” Nzivnet added.

The website underscores fears about “the flags of Hezbollah and Lebanon fluttering together atop a hill in the Wadi al-Khail region. This is the image of Hezbollah’s victory over terrorism. It is not in Aleppo or in Daraa. It is in Arsal, at home. Hezbollah has come back to fight at home. It is sending us signals too. And no one can stop it.”

“Israeli” worries spilled over from the battlefield into the political front. According to Haaretz, “Hezbollah took responsibility for the negotiations as if it were the Lebanese government. The party succeeded in securing the approval of the Lebanese army to adhere to the agreement it reached to deport fighters of the Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham.”

“This move by Hezbollah may not have any far-reaching strategic consequences from a military perspective, unlike the removal of al-Qaeda from the Lebanese border. But the organization will know how to capitalize on it when the time comes to discuss security in areas neighboring Lebanon,” Haaretz added.

Perhaps the entity’s fear is embodied in a few words said by the head of the “Israeli” military surveillance apparatus, Herzl Halevi, as he addressed the Joroud battles.

“Hezbollah is a stone’s throw away from the “Israeli” border.”

كلام مباشر لدولة الرئيس المكلف

ديسمبر 8, 2018

ناصر قنديل

– يدرك دولة الرئيس المكلف بتشكيل الحكومة سعد الحريري أن ما أنتج الصيغة الفضفاضة المقترحة في تأليف الحكومة، الذي يتحمل وحده مسؤوليته، كصاحب صلاحيات دستورية «حصرية» لا ينازعه عليها أحد ولا يتحمل عنه تبعاتها أحد. نتجت عن الصيغ الفضفاضة التي اعتمدها عندما منحه الإضافات الوزارية بغير وجه حق لتياره وحلفائه بينما مارس الإجحاف بحق خصمه السياسي الرئيسي المتمثل بقوى الثامن من آذار، في لعبة تذاكٍ لا تُخفى على أحد، فمنح مقاعد وزراية غير مستحقة لمن يهمه أمرهم وحرم مقاعد وزارية مستحقة لمن يخالفهم الرأي، فنالت الكتل حقها ونالت أشلاء بعضها حصصاً إضافية للمستوزرين. وهذا يكفي لتبيانه الخروج من تذاكي توزيع الكتل وإعادة تدويرها للإيحاء بتمثيل مزدوج مخادع تتم المطالبة به، ففي البلد ثلاث كتل كبرى، واحدة يمثلها رئيس الجمهورية والتيار الوطني الحر نالت حقها بـ11 وزيراً في صيغة صاحب الصلاحية «الحصرية» بتأليف الحكومة، هي 7 وزراء للتيار وفق معادلة وزير لكل 4 نواب و4 وزراء للرئيس، وتكتل قوى الرابع عشر من آذار وقد نال 12 وزيراً لقاء حجمه المتمثل بـ 44 نائباً وفق معادلة وزير لكل 4 نواب أما تكتل الثامن من آذار الممثل نيابياً بـ 45 نائباً أي المساوي لتكتل الرابع عشر من آذار، فقد منح ظلماً وعدواناً فقط 7 مقاعد وزارية، اي أقل بخمسة وزراء عن نظيره وخصمه السياسي وهما متساويان في الحجم النيابي، والخمسة الزائدة و»الفضفاضة» التي حازتها قوى الرابع عشر من آذار هي المقاعد الإضافية للمستوزرين من أشلاء الكتل، وليس المقعد الذي تطلبه قوى الثامن من آذار لأحد مكوناتها، بدلاً من خمسة تستحقها زيادة أسوة بنظيرتها قوى الرابع عشر من آذار.

– يعلم الرئيس المكلف أن كل البحث عن مساعي تسويات بالصيغ التي يسمّيها بـ «الفضفاضة» أو بسواها ليس نابعاً من البحث عن مقاعد لمستوزرين، لأن من حق قوى الثامن من آذار وليس طلباً لصدقة أو منة من دولته، أن تتمثل وفقاً لمعادلته بتمثيل كل القوى ما عداها، أي وزير لكل 4 نواب، أن تكون حصتها 11 وزيراً إذا اعتبرنا الوزير الثاني عشر في تمثيل قوى الرابع عشر من آذار حصة لرئيس الحكومة أو منصبه الواقع خارج توزيع المقاعد، كما يعلم أن تطبيق قاعدة وزير لكل 5 نواب سيتيح نيل كل من قوى 14 و8 آذار 9 وزراء وعليه بذلك شطب وزيرين من حصته وحصص حلفائه، ويمكن له تعويضهما بالتفاهم مع رئيس الجمهورية كحصة له كرئيس للحكومة، لكن تبقى حصة 8 آذار 9 وزراء تغنيها عن الحديث بتمثيل اللقاء التشاوري منفرداً، فالـ 9 وزراء هم 6 شيعة و2 مسيحيين و1 سني كتحصيل حاصل لتكوينها، ويعلم دولته أن قوى الثامن من آذار لم تفعل ذلك مراعاة لدولته، فاكتفت بطب مقعد واحد إضافي لحصتها المجحفة بـ 7 وزراء.

– يعلم دولة الرئيس أن الصيغ التي أحب تسميتها بـ «الفضفاضة» تم التداول فيها بحثاً عن مخارج تراعي مزاجه الانفعالي وعناده غير المبرر والذي لا يستقيم مع كون الأزمة ناتجة عن سوء تدبيره في إدارة صلاحياته «الحصرية» في مساعي تأليف الحكومة، ومنعاً للوقوع في «جاهلية» دستورية أخرى في تشكيل الحكومة، وبمراجعة بسيطة لما جرى في الجاهلية يعلم دولته أن أحداً لم يكن متضامناً مع كلام الوزير السابق وئام وهاب، بمن في ذلك الوزير وهاب نفسه، لكن أحداً لم يكن يتوقع أن يكون في مقام رئاسة الحكومة من يجرّد حملة عسكرية لسوق شخصية سياسية مخفورة وذليلة، لمجرد أن دولته قد غضب، من دون مراعاة الأصول القانونية والمعايير القضائية، ولا الحسابات السياسية والأعراف التي راكمتها تجارب مماثلة لدولته مع حالات أشدّ إلحاقاً للأذى بشخصيات ومرجعيات لا تقلّ عنه مكانة، ومن مواقع واضحة الخلفية المعادية للسلم الأهلي والوفاق الوطني، وطلب دولته التريث سنوات في التعامل معها خارج المعادلات القانونية والقضائية ومذكرات الإحضار، وقاد السعي للحوار معها والبحث عن تسويات ترضى بها، كحالة أحمد الأسير أو حالة مسلحي عرسال، حتى اقتنع دولته بخلاف ذلك، ولم يعارضه أحد ولم يضغط عليه أحد ولم ينازعه في صلاحياته «الحصرية « أحد بينما الحالة هنا واضحة ومحددة قانوناً، وما تم ليس إلا إستعمالا غير موفق وغير محق للصلاحية «الحصرية» لدولته، والنتائج كارثية، وكانت ستصير كارثية أكثر لولا اللجوء لصيغ يمكن تسميتها هي الأخرى بالفضفاضة، لكن ليس لحجز مقاعد للمستوزرين من أشلاء الكتل، بل لمنحه طريقاً للتراجع يناسب شخصيته الانفعالية وغضبه وعناده، ولعل هذا هو الحال أيضاً في ما يسمّيه بالصيغ «الفضفاضة» حكومياً ولأهداف طرحها، فليجنّبنا دولته جاهلية حكومية مستمرة تجلب الكارثة المتمادية على البلاد بغياب الحكومة، وليستعمل صلاحياته «الحصرية» ويُنهي العقدة بأحد الحلول غير «الفضفاضة».

1.5 Million Syrian Refugees Returned to Syria

Syrian Refugees in Lebanon - Horrific Conditions
Syrian Refugees in Lebanon – Horrific Conditions

In spite of the massive campaign by Western powers and their regional stooges, more than 1.5 million Syrian refugees managed to return to Syria already, many more have registered their desire to return and awaiting logistics.

Today, Monday, October 1st, a new group of 4,100 Syrian refugees in Lebanon will be heading back home with the help of the Lebanese General Security apparatus.

The refugees returning today will use three border crossings with Lebanon. The main Masna’a crossing, in addition to Abboudieh crossing and Zamarani crossing which was designated for those returning from the infamous Lebanese Arsal town, once the stronghold of ISIS and Nusra Front terrorists in the tiny country.

Syrian refugees returning from Arsal is a major sign of the failure of the propaganda the Syrian people are constantly bombarded with by NATO and its regional mouthpieces. It also demonstrates the failure of the Saudi policies in Lebanon, where the current PM Hariri and his bloc wasted no effort in pressuring the Syrian refugees to keep them in Lebanon and use them as a bargaining chip against their country.

Lebanese incumbent government, they continue to fail to form one several months after their parliament elections, is split over Syria with the patriotic wing pushing for cooperation with the Syrian government to facilitate the return of the refugees to their country, while the Saudi wing headed by PM Hariri double standards arm terrorist groups in Syria, abuse the humanitarian conditions of the refugees in Lebanon and yet issue political empty statements of their concern over the safety of those refugees.

The horrific conditions the Syrian refugees in Lebanon were forced to live in by the Saudi-owned Lebanese politicians will never be forgotten nor forgiven and will remain a black stain in Lebanese history. Syria has received tens of thousands of Lebanese refugees during Lebanon’s never-ending crises, yet none of them was humiliated or put in a tent, let alone in such miserable tents outside rural towns and under electricity high voltage cables.

During a meeting at the Russian embassy in Lebanon, Russian Major General Yevgeny Ilyin stated that 1,470,000 Syrian refugees have returned to Syria in cooperation with a number of countries and international organizations.

The Russian general added that work is undergoing to rehabilitate the infrastructure facilities in Syria to serve the Syrian refugees upon their return, which includes 138 schools, 116 children playgrounds, 109 bakeries, 113 water pumping stations, 119 electricity sub-stations, 106 health care clinics and 79 colleges and university faculties.

Sayyed Nasrallah Mocks IOF: They Can’t Escape Defeat despite Capabilities

 August 27, 2018

manar-05098830015353009402

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said Sunday the Israeli military cannot escape defeat despite its apparent capabilities, stressing that thousands of Israeli troops were now seeking mental health treatment.

“The Israeli army has developed much of its capabilities and acquired state-of-the-art missiles and military hardware, it cannot yet evade defeat,” Sayyed Nasrallah said in a speech marking the first anniversary of the Second Liberation of the Syrian border from the ISIL and Al-Nusra front control.

Mocking Israeli weakness, Sayyed Nasrallah cites increase in Israeli soldiers’ psychiatric visits saying “the Israeli leadership knows that it is difficult to recruit people to serve in combat units. They lack the willingness to sacrifice of past days. They lack the motivation to endanger themselves. The studies also show that the soldiers find it difficult to cope with the lack of trust between them and the officers. More and more soldiers are seeking release (from service) on mental health grounds and the army is unable to recover from its sense of defeat.” “This army has not launched a new campaign since 2006,” Hezbollah’s S.G. added.

Only last year, His eminence said, some 44,000 Israeli soldiers were treated by psychiatrists.

Sayyed Nasrallah then praised Lebanese youths for the outstanding courage they demonstrated in the North Lebanon battles.

“Foreign media outlets are seeking to intimidate our nation by over-counting the number of our martyrs. Those who think they can overawe our people are delusional. We’ve been fighting for seven years now and our environment has not shown any weariness but rather further embracement and support. There is no place in Lebanon for an occupier nor a future for those who have expansion ambitions as long as our people cling to freedom, liberation, sovereignty and dignity,” Hezbollah leader said in the ceremony called “Glory & Victory”, held in Hermel, Northern Al-Bekaa.

This victory was made by the army-people-resistance golden equation, he said.

“The residents of the region, the residents of Bekaa and the resistance took a quick decision to confront terrorism inside Lebanese and Syrian territories because the government was confused back then and unable to take a decision.” “Despite a political decision confusion, the Lebanese army took a defensive position and made sacrifices, offered martyrs,” Sayyed Nasrallah stated.

Should we take a decision regarding any major operation in Syria, his eminence said, one signal is enough for our youth to flood battlefields, because they have enough awareness

His eminence wondered that had Al-Nusra and ISIL triumphed in Syria, where would have the Lebanese people been now? “What would have been the fate of all countries in the region had ISIL and the similar groups won the battle in Syria and Iraq?” “Those who had bet on ISIL are being demonized by the group itself.”

Sayyed Nasrallah also warned against a false flag chemical attack in Syria’s northern province of Idlib as a pretext for airstrikes against the Syrian government.

He accused the West of orchestrating a chemical attack in order to attack Syria while choosing to remain silent in the face of crimes against the children in Yemen.

“All data indicates that a new chemical play in Idlib is underway. At the time the West is looking for an excuse to launch a military aggression on Syria, it is turning a blind eye to the crimes being committed against Yemeni children. Nobody knows into what abyss [Saudi Crown Prince] Mohammed bin Salman is plunging Saudi Arabia and its dear nation in,” Hezbollah leader said.

Turning to the internal Lebanese situation and to the United States’ support for the campaign inside Lebanon, he said Washington intervened to prevent the Lebanese army from fighting the terrorist organizations.

His eminence assured that the United States has always offered financial support and funneled weapons to ISIL militants, saying, “US forces intervened to stop Lebanese army from launching a military operation against ISIL in al-Joroud area (the northern outskirts at the borders with Syria). At any time ISIL terrorists were besieged in an area in Syria, the US combat helicopters would land to rescue them.” “MOC (Military Operations Center) in Jordan had even led terrorist groups operations in South of Syria.”

Hezbollah’s S.G. indicated that the US does not care at all about the interests of regional states in the Middle East, emphasizing that Washington never stands by its allies and simply views them as its tools in order to attain its own goals.

On the inflammatory rhetoric against Hezbollah which intensified ever since parliamentary elections, Sayyed Nasrallah said there’s a plot against the party to hold it responsible for every deteriorating situation at every level. “There’s a campaign being launched via social media to distort Hezbollah’s image in front of its environment,” he said, but warned “those who think they can intimidate our popular incubator are delusional.”

“The goal of the plot against Lebanon is to hold it responsible at all levels for the deteriorating situation in the country, he said, adding that “claims that Hezbollah is now in control of Lebanon’s decisions are aimed at pinning the blame on the party for all the current situations.” “No one of us imposes his policies and orientation on the other.”

We are modestly the largest party in Lebanon, but we have the least representation in the political arena, Sayyed Nasrallah indicated.

“Our enemies are convinced that the war with Hezbollah is useless and hard, so they see the solution in targeting it before its people,” he said, calling upon those who had any evidence of corruption against the party to provide it to well-known secretariat offices.

“We bet on intra-Lebanese dialogue for the formation of the new government as the time is ticking away,” he said, warning against creating ‘new obstacles’ in the government formation process. Let us postpone the debate over the relation with Syria and the ministerial policy statement until after the formation of the government, he urged, pointing out that “the relation between Hezbollah and President [Michel] Aoun is a relation of trust.”

Separately, Sayyed Nasrallah warned parties betting on the Special Tribunal for Lebanon against playing with fire.

“Some March 14 circles are saying that the main reason behind delaying the formation of the government is that the Special Tribunal for Lebanon will issue its ruling in September and that it will be against Hezbollah in which there will be a new situation in the country to capitalize on. I tell those betting on the tribunal: do not play with fire! The STL means nothing to us at all and its rulings are of no value regardless whether they are condemnation or acquittal rulings.”

Regarding Baalbek-Hermel area and development projects there, Sayyed Nasrallah announced that Hezbollah has agreed with [Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih] Berri to put forward a bill to form the Development Council of Baalbek-Hermel. He pointed that the consolidation of Hezbollah environment in Bekaa and the deep cooperation between Hezbollah and Amal shall be preserved.

نصرالله: حلفاء النصرة وداعش لن يمثّلوا بعلبك ـ الهرمل

القوات تعلن انفراط تحالفها مع المستقبل

هل يُعقل أن يسأل أحدنا ماذا قدم حزب الله وما زال أهالي الشهداء يرتدون الأسود؟ (هيثم الموسوي)

على مسافة 10 أيام من موعد انتهاء مهلة تسجيل اللوائح الانتخابية في وزارة الداخلية، بدأت طلائع اللوائح والتحالفات تطل من معظم الدوائر، وآخرها إعلان التحالف بين حزب الله وحركة أمل والتيار الوطني الحر في دائرة بعبدا، فيما انتكست الأمور على خط معراب ــ بيت الوسط مع إعلان القوات اللبنانية أن المفاوضات بين القوات وتيار المستقبل «لم تصل الى أي نتيجة في أي مكان بعد». في هذه الأثناء، خاطب الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصرالله الجسم الحزبي في البقاعين الشمالي والأوسط، مؤكداً ضرورة شحذ الهمم

يوم الانتخابات لم يعد بعيداً. وفيما لا تزال بعض الأحزاب مشغولة بتحالفاتها، كان حزب الله يستشعر خطر تصاعد النبرة الاعتراضية في بعلبك ــ الهرمل. عنوان الاعتراض: ماذا فعل نواب المنطقة لها؟ ولأن للمنطقة حساسيتها بالنسبة إلى المقاومة، جاءت الإجابة على لسان السيد نصرالله نفسه.

أمس توزّع الحزبيون على 9 مدن وبلدات في البقاعين الأوسط والشمالي للقاء السيد، عبر الشاشة. العنوان استنهاض الهمم في مواجهة الحملة التي تطال مرشحي الحزب. بلغ الأمر بالسيد حدّ الإشارة إلى أنه مستعد للتوجه شخصياً إلى منطقة البقاع «إذا رأينا أن هناك وهناً في الإقبال على الانتخابات»، وأنه لن يتردد في التجوال في قرى المنطقة ومدنها وأحيائها للسعي إلى إنجاح هذه اللائحة «مهما كانت الأثمان ولو تعرضت للخطر». وأكد أنه «لن نسمح بأن يمثل حلفاء النصرة وداعش أهالي بعلبك – الهرمل»، كما لن يسمح أهالي المنطقة لمن سلّح التنظيمات الإرهابية بأن يمثلوها.

لم يهضم «حزب الله» قول أحد قياديي تيار المستقبل إن المعركة هي معركة هزيمة حزب الله في بعلبك – الهرمل… ليس الفوز بمقعد أو اثنين انتصاراً بالنسبة إليه، فعنوان هزيمة حزب الله هو سحب أحد المقاعد الشيعية الستة منه. ذلك يساوي الـ127 نائباً في البرلمان، بحسب الأمين العام لتيار المستقبل أحمد الحريري. لكن نصر الله قال: لا يفترض أحد أنه يسجل انتصاراً إذا خرقنا بمقعد أو اثنين، فنحن حين وافقنا على النسبية فتحنا المجال أمام ذلك، مشيراً إلى أنه «كما سنخسر في مكان سنربح في أماكن أخرى».

استعاد نصر الله أيام شبابه في بعلبك الهرمل. قال: منذ ١٩٧٩ الى ١٩٨٦ كنت مسؤول منطقة وكنت أتجول في شوارع كل المدن والقرى البقاعية، سائلاً: كيف كان وضع هذه المناطق قبل الـ٨٢، وكيف أصبح بعد الـ٨٢ والـ٩٢ الى يومنا هذا؟ هناك الكثير الكثير من الانجازات.

وتطرق نصر الله إلى الشق الاقتصادي، قائلاً: تسألون كيف وصل الدين العام إلى 80 مليار دولار. انظروا إلى المسؤولين الذين اغتنوا عندما صاروا في الحكم. وقال إن مؤتمرات الدعم التي تعقد، كباريس 4، ليست مخصصة لتقديم الهبات للبنان، بل لتقديم قروض سترتّب علينا فوائد وسندفعها من جيوبنا.

ووجّه نصر الله أصابع الاتهام إلى «المستقبل» من دون أن يسميه، قائلاً إنه «ما عدا فترة حكم سليم الحص، فإنه من 92 إلى الآن، كان الفريق الثاني في الحكم، وكان الصرف ومجالسه ووسائله بيده»، مشيراً إلى أن النهب الكبير في الدولة هو من مسؤولية هذا الطرف. وأكد تبنّي الحزب شعار محاربة الفساد في المرحلة المقبلة.

كذلك ذكّر بقول رئيس بلدية عرسال السابق علي الحجيري، من دون أن يسميه، إنه أصبح هناك نواة دولة من عرسال الى رنكوس (في سوريا). وسأل: هل من كان يريد سيطرة المسلحين على بعلبك ــ الهرمل يريد أن يمثلها اليوم؟ أضاف: أين كان القوات وتيار المستقبل حينها؟

ليجيب بنفسه:

كانوا يذهبون بنوابهم إلى حيث توجد النصرة وداعش للتضامن معهما.

وفي ما يتعلق بالحرب في سوريا، أشار نصر الله إلى أن تدخل حزب الله جاء لمصلحة لبنان، وكذلك مساهمته في تحرير معظم الجرود، مع الجيش اللبناني، مشيراً إلى أنه

«لولا هذه الثلاثية، المقاومة وصمود الأهالي والجيش، لكان لبنان مسرحاً للارهاب ولما كانت ستحصل هذه الانتخابات في بعلبك الهرمل».

وتطرق إلى ما رافق حرب تموز من مفاوضات، وقال:

«يا عمي الاسرائيلي تنازل والحكومة كانت تصرّ على نزع السلاح، ولولا وجود وزرائنا وحلفائنا والأستاذ نبيه بري والرئيس إميل لحود حينها لما حصل ما حصل لحماية المقاومة»، ليخلص، مستذكراً أعوام ١٩٨٢، ١٩٩٦، ٢٠٠٠ و٢٠٠٦، إلى أنه لولا المقاومة لكانت إسرائيل احتلت لبنان بكامله.

القوات ــ المستقبل: أفق مسدود

من جهة ثانية، أعلن موقع القوات اللبنانية ان المفاوضات بين القوات وتيار المستقبل لم تصل الى اي نتيجة في اي مكان بعد، إلى درجة ان الاتفاق الذي كان أنجز مبدئياً في بعلبك ــ الهرمل، يعمل المستقبل على التراجع عنه، إما عن طريق الإصرار على إدخال التيار الوطني الحر في اللائحة، وإما عن طريق تمييع الإعلان عن اللائحة من أجل التراجع عن الاتفاق. وأضاف ان المستقبل «يريد ان يستبدل مقاعد القوات بمقاعد للتيار الحر، علماً بأن القوات بإمكانها التفاهم مع التيار الحر بمعزل عن المستقبل، وهذه ذريعة واضحة إما للتراجع عن التفاهمات المتفق عليها أصلاً، أو للتذرع من أجل عدم التفاهم، وفي مطلق الأحوال وصلت الرسالة».

وكشف موقع القوات أن الاتفاق في الشوف – عاليه هو بين القوات والحزب التقدمي الاشتراكي «وليس بين القوات والمستقبل، ويبدو أن التفاهم بين الاشتراكي والمستقبل لم تكتمل عناصره بعد، في ظل الخلاف حول ترشيح النائب محمد الحجار أو السيد بلال عبدالله».

Lebanon Pays Tribute for Slain Soldiers in Official, Popular Funeral

Local Editor

08-09-2017 | 14:35

Lebanon

Lebanon held a state funeral for 10 of its soldiers captured and killed by Takfiri terrorists in the border area of Arsal between 2014 and 2017.

A large crowd of Lebanese people paid tribute to the bodies of the 10 soldiers at a Friday ceremony at the Defense Ministry near the capital city of Beirut.

The ceremony was also attended by Prime Minister Saad Hariri, President Michel Aoun, Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri, army commanders and political figures.

Lebanon declared Friday a national day of mourning with government organizations, banks, schools and businesses closed as a sign of respect.

“Our joy in the victory over terrorism remains sorrowful for we were hoping that we manage to free you unharmed from the hands of the terrorism so that you may return to your Army and families in order to participate with us in this historic achievement,” President Aoun said during his speech at the funeral ceremony.

Daesh [the Arabic acronym for the Takfiri terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL’ group] and other terror outfits broke into Lebanon in 2014, taking over the border town of Arsal.

They were ousted from the town, but started taking positions close to Ras Baalbeck, another border town, which has been the focus of the recent counterterrorism operations.

The soldiers were kidnapped by Takfiri militants during the border raid in 2014. Two of them were killed the same year, while the fate of the remaining eight was unknown until late July when the militants agreed to reveal their burial place as part of a ceasefire deal with Lebanon and its Hezbollah resistance movement.

Under the deal, a convoy of Daesh militants and their families left areas on the Lebanon-Syria border.

The deal came after the Lebanese army, backed by Hezbollah, conducted successful military operations on the border areas.

Lebanon Holds State Funeral in Honor of Martyred Soldiers

September 8, 2017

soldiers funeral

Lebanon bids farewell to soldiers who were killed by ISIL Takfiri group in a state funeral at Defense Ministry in Yarze.

Lebanese officials including top three leaders attended the funeral to pay tribute to 10 slain soldiers, whose remains were discovered following “Fajr Al-Joroud” operation which was launched by the Lebanese army earlier in August in a bid to liberate Ras Baalbek and Qaa outskirts from ISIL Takfiri group.

The ten soldiers were abducted in 2014 as the army engaged in a battle against ISIL and Nusra Front in the eastern border town of Arsal.

As the coffins of the soldiers arrived at the Defense Ministry, 21-gun salute was fired in honor of the martyrs. The army commander, General Joseph Aoun then gave military awards to the families of soldiers.

General Aoun hailed the victory of “Fajr Al-Joroud” operation, stressing the military’s determination to wipe out terror from the country.

He noted that the battle against ISIL took place in Ras Baalbek and Qaa outskirt because of sovereign decision taken by the government. On the other hand, the army commander stressed high readiness of the military in face of Israeli threats.

For his part, President Michel Aoun promised families of the slain soldiers to go ahead with a probe into the abduction operation and the killing of their sons.

President Aoun praised the soldiers sacrifices, vowing to confront terrorism.

Hezbollah Won, But «Israel» Won’t Stop

Andrew Korybko

Expect “Israel” to try and obtain Russian diplomatic support for pressuring Iran to on Hezbollah’s post-war presence in Syria, but don’t necessarily assume that it’ll succeed.

Hezbollah Fighters

Hezbollah swiftly defeated Daesh [Arabic acronym for “ISIS” / “ISIL”] in an effective anti-terrorist campaign coordinated with the Syrian Arab Army along the mountainous Syrian-Lebanese border. Observers were taken aback by how quickly victory was attained, as the terrorist group has hitherto put up fierce resistance elsewhere in the country. This testifies to the growing strength of Hezbollah as one of the world’s most effective anti-terrorist on-the-ground forces, as well as the relative weakening of Daesh as it approaches its dying days.

Hezbollah’s major victory against Daesh also sent strong signals to the three-headed “Cerberus” of “Israel”, the US, and Saudi Arabia that the group is a very capable of defending itself against all threats, and that its battle-hardened skills in Syria can also be used to defend their Lebanese homeland if it ever came under threat once again by those three allied actors. Consequently, this means that their subversive plans against the Resistance Arc will have to be modified since the strategy of expanding Daesh into Lebanon has clearly failed.

Looking forward, it can be expected that Hezbollah will continue to play an ever-growing role in the Mideast, having already become indispensable to Lebanon’s stability and now increasingly to Syria’s own. In response to the dismal failings of their military-terrorist proxy war against the group, Hezbollah’s enemies might attempt to win Russia’s support for their plans in exchange for diplomatic-geopolitical concessions, hoping that Moscow could in turn lean on Iran to compel it to downscale Tehran’s support for Hezbollah in a post-war Syria.

It’s unlikely that this strategy would be successful, both in terms of winning Russia’s full support for this move in the first place and in Moscow’s potential pressuring of Tehran afterwards, but it can’t be discounted that “Israel” will try to leverage its excellent relationship with Russia to these ends, especially bearing in mind that Tel Aviv’s proxy war against Hezbollah has failed and that the only possible alternative for it at this point is to broaden it into taking international diplomatic dimensions.

بعد كلمة السيد نصرالله: ماذا كان يفعل السبهان في لبنان؟

ثامر السبهان من لبنان: الدول لا تحميها إلا مؤسساتها الشرعية

بعد كلمة السيد نصرالله: ماذا كان يفعل السبهان في لبنان؟

ناصر قنديل

سبتمبر 1, 2017

– صار أكيداً بعد الكلام الواضح للسيد حسن نصرالله عن مضمون المداخلة الأميركية الرسمية لمنع الدولة اللبنانية من تنفيذ عملية فجر الجرود او تأجيلها لعام على الأقل، والتهديد بقطع المساعدات الأميركية عن الجيش اللبناني في حال الامتناع عن الأخذ بالطلب الأميركي، أن الفريق اللبناني المنتمي للحلف الذي تقوده واشنطن عالميا والرياض إقليميا، قد ارتكب بنظر واشنطن خطأين كبيرين متتاليين، الأول اعتقاده بأنه من المسموح له إعلان التأييد لعملية حزب الله في جرود عرسال أو التغاضي عنها أو عدم خوض حرب تشويه ضدها ومناكفة ومساجلة على حلفيتها، وافتراض أن ذلك يمنع حزب الله من الاستئثار بوهج الانتصار. والخطأ الثاني هو الظن بأنه يصحح خطأه الأول بتبني عملية تحرير الجرود اللبنانية في القاع ورأس بعلبك على أيدي الجيش اللبناني لإزاحة الأضواء عن إنجاز حزب الله وفتح منافسة بين الجيش والمقاومة.

– الأكيد أيضاً بالوقائع أن المتموضعين تحت الراية التي تظلل الخندق الأميركي السعودي بدّلوا لهجتهم واتخذوا عكس مواقفهم، تجاه عملية حزب الله في القلمون الغربي بالتعاون مع الجيش السوري، علماً أنها تسهّل عملية الجيش اللبناني من دون إحراجه بالتنسيق مع الجيش السوري الذي يرفضونه ويرفضه الأميركيون والسعوديون، وعلماً أنها لا تجري على أرض لبنانية، لكن العملية الجارية على الأرض اللبنانية لا تتمّ بدونها، وعلماً أن كشف مصير العسكريين اللبنانيين المخطوفين لا يتحقق من دون حشر المسلحين الذي يحتلّون الجرود بين نارَي الشرق والغرب، وفكّي كماشتهما، وعلماً أن التفاوض كما قال قائد الجيش العماد جوزف عون كان السبيل الوحيد لكشف مصير العسكريين، ومواصلة الحرب ستعني إبقاء المصير مجهولاً إلى الأبد، وأن كل التفاوض ووقف النار وانسحاب المسلحين كانت خطوات تمّت بشراكة قرار من قيادة الجيش وفقاً لتقدير أهداف العملية؟

– زاد من قيمة هذه الحقائق كلام السيد نصرالله عن الحسابات السورية التي لم تكن أولويتها العسكرية تلك المعركة ولا كان يناسبها القبول بنقل مسلحي داعش. وهي قبلت بطلبات حزب الله ونزلت عند رغبته كحليف، بحضور شخصي من السيد نصرالله للقاء الرئيس السوري بشار الأسد، ترجمة لمطالب لبنانية وضعتها قيادة الجيش وتبنّاها حزب الله، فكيف يستقيم الترحيب بحرب خاضها حزب الله على أرض لبنانية ضد جبهة النصرة تنتهي بترحيل مسلحيها إلى إدلب، ويفترض أنها أخذت من طريق الجيش ما يجب أن يقوم به، مع التنديد بحرب يخوضها حزب الله خارج الأرض اللبنانية لتسهيل حرب يخوضها الجيش اللبناني على أرض لبنانية، ويستثمر تحالفه مع سوريا لإشراكها في الحرب وتحقيق الأهداف التي رسمها الجيش اللبناني، والحرب التي يخوضها الجيش يفترض أنّها طلب هؤلاء منعاً لتصدّر حزب الله لصورة النصر، ونقل المسلّحين هنا من ضمن رؤية قيادة الجيش لكشف مصير العسكريين بينما ليست في حساباته أو لا تعنيه على الأقل هناك، فكيف استقام هذا التناقض؟

– إذا كان التفسير للتبدّل والتناقض يختزن بالموقف الأميركي الذي كشفه السيد نصرالله، لكن الإحراج كان كبيراً لدرجة يصعب فيها التراجع عن منح الجيش التفويض اللازم لخوض معركته. والخشية من أن يخوضها حزب الله وحده،

وأمام إصرار الرئيس ميشال عون وقيادة الجيش على قرار المعركة، فاضطروا للمضي في المعركة محاولين التعويض والتكفير عن الأخطاء التي سجلها الأميركي عليهم، بالحملة العالية الوتيرة ضد حزب الله، فمن هو الصديق الذي أعاد ترتيب التفاهمات وطلب الصفح عن الأخطاء للحلفاء وأعاد تنظيم صفوفهم، وقاد الحملة على حزب الله في لبنان والعراق؟

– السفير السعودي السابق في بغداد ثامر السبهان والمسؤول عن الملف العراقي في فريق ولي العهد محمد بن سلمان زار بيروت بين حربَي الجرود، وحصر لقاءاته بجماعة السعودية، وشهد لبنان والعراق بفضل قيادته مواقف عالية السقوف ضد حزب الله، تقول المعلومات. وتقول إن الاتصال الهاتفي بين الرئيس دونالد ترامب والملك السعودي لم يكن لمناقشة الأزمة القطرية الخليجية، بل كان بطلب من القيادة العسكرية الأميركية من الرئيس ترامب للضغط لتصعيد الحملة لبنانياً وعراقياً على حزب الله وتحديداً لطلب زيادة المخصصات المالية لبعض الأطراف والشخصيات والمؤسسات الإعلامية اللبنانية والعراقية العاملة مع الأميركيين لتزخيم الحملة، كما تقول بعض المعلومات أيضاً.

Hassan Nasrallah: Israel is in despair after the defeats of Daesh

Source

Speech by Hezbollah Secretary General Sayed Hassan Nasrallah on 28 August 2017 on the occasion of the Second Liberation, following the complete surrender of the terrorists of Daech and Al-Nosra in Lebanon

Transcript:

[…] We are truly facing a great victory (against Daesh in Lebanon). From there, consider that on May 25, 2000, we expelled the Zionist Occupying (Lebanon) and today we all (the Syrian and Lebanese armies and Islamic Resistance) have expelled the occupying terrorist takfiri. This is one of the fundamental similarities.

On the border, vast and sensitive areas (mountains, hills, strategic positions) were in the hands of the Zionists, and here also, vast expanses, mountains, heights, hills, strategic positions were in the hands of the takfiris. At the border, accross the international border, the Israelis were a permanent threat and that is always the case, and takfiris were a threat at every moment against all of Lebanon, especially against all the Bekaa, not only against Baalbeck-Hermel and border villages.

Lately, everyone knows that they planned there, in the Jurd of Ersal, Daesh was preparing suicide operations and attacks in Zahle and in the surrounding villages, but the intelligence services of the Lebanese army discovered them before the operations were conducted.

Today we face this reality. And maybe it would come to the mind of some to say “ô Sayed [Nasrallah], as regards Israel, it is something very different (from what happens today).” But no, it is a continuation. Day after day, it is shown that these Daesh and takfiri groups have been created by American power and fought to realize the Israeli project. They fought (in the interest of the) Israeli project. And what these takfiri terrorist groups have offered Israel, Israel could never get for decades.

And more dangerously… I do not want to classify these two dangers, because I believe that these terrorist groups are fighting within the American-Israeli project, whether they know it or not. Their leaders know for sure. The fools are the fighters who got fooled by false and superficial slogans. Israel is an occupation and hegemony project. Israel is an occupying project. The United States are a project of hegemony. Daesh and other takfiri groups are an extermination project. The extermination of all that is different (from them): Muslim, Christian, Sabean, Yazdi, everything. That is an extermination project. The extermination of man, of History, of civilization, of society, of all things. And then when our region is destroyed, its armies, its plans, its states, its institutions, its social structure, it will be offered (on a silver platter), primed, cooked to perfection, roasted and stuffed to America and Israel, so that they seize it and impose their conditions on everyone.

And that’s why today, who is shedding tears over the fate of Daesh in Syria, in Qalamoun and in Iraq? Netanyahu and Israeli officials! It is they who mourn (bitterly) and yell sorrowful lamentations! Currently, their problem with the Trump administration is that it committed itself to the eradication of Daesh as a priority, the same administration that recognizes that this is the Obama (and Clinton) administration who created Daesh. This is why no one should come and say that there is a big difference between the Liberation of South(-Lebanon in 2000 against Israel) and this battle (against Daesh) and that the liberation of South ranks first (in importance), and that (the Liberation of our borders) is in 10th place (for example) in any way! (Liberation of southern Lebanon against Israel) is first, (the Liberation of our borders against Daech) comes right away in second place! For it is a continuation of the battle against Israel.

Read Israeli (statements and press). (Unfortunately), the Lebanese and the Arabs do not read much. Read what they say, what they write, especially these days, with the ongoing eradication of Daesh in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, so that you realize clearly that Daesh is a true Israeli project.

We are indeed facing the Second Liberation (of Lebanon). The date of the First Liberation is May 25, 2000. The date of the Second Liberation, for history, is today (28 August 2017). I do not mean the day (to be selected for an annual commemoration of this event). Today we wrote… Last time, today’s date, August 28, 2017, was empty (of any commemoration) in the calendar. But not for 2018. By the will of God, this day and this month are written by the Lebanese Army, the Syrian army and fighters of the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon. This was written today (in the annals of History): August 28, 2017 is the Day of the Second Liberation, which will be recorded as a glorious day in the history of Lebanon and the history of the region.

Now whether the Lebanese government (led by the pro-Saudi Saad Hariri and his March 14 coalition, facing the movement of March 8, with Hezbollah and its allies) recognizes it or not, that’s their problem, just like what happened on May 25, 2000. The situation was somewhat different at the time, that date was declared a national holiday, then was removed from the calendar at the time of a previous Prime Minister. But then, thanks to God, a head of government redid the occasion of May 25 a day of remembrance.

We now have an opportunity to commemorate: August 28, 2017. I speak only of the historical event that took place on August 28, I do not write the history (and national holidays) myself. But today there is no longer any daeshiste, takfiri, (member of) Al-Nusra Front or (any other terrorist) on the least grain of sand, any mountain or any Lebanese hill. It was on that date (this event occurred). After that, if the government wants to keep that date, or choose August 27, August 25, August 31 or September 3 (for the commemoration), I have no problem. I do not precede anyone, I speak only of the historical event.

On this basis, I wish to conclude with this call (to celebrate this event this Thursday 31st, the day of Arafat, on the eve of Eid-al-Adha): you remember that on May 25, 2000, it is all Lebanon who won, and Lebanon was happy with the victory (against Israel), with the exception of those who had placed their hopes in the Israeli occupation, and there were (a number) in the country, and those who had placed their hopes in the army of Antoine Lahd. So on that day, there was a majority (of Lebanese) happy, and (a minority) of people whose faces were darkened (with bitterness) because their plans had collapsed.

Today… But (in 2000), the happiest people, despite the fact that it was a national day, celebration and victory, were southerners, residents of southern Lebanon and Jabal Amel who were the happiest of all with this victory and this Liberation. The reason is simple: it is because the occupation took place on their mountains, their hills, their cities, it is their sons and daughters who were imprisoned, their peasants and farmer were fired at, and a daily threat was hanging over them. We remember the bombing against Sidon and Nabatiye and children and schoolchildren’s heads torn in the streets. It is quite normal that the people of the South, who are those who have suffered most and have the most sacrificed,were (more) happy on May 25, 2000.

Today, all of Lebanon won, and logically, the vast majority (of the population) is pleased, with the exception of those who have placed their hopes on the Al-Nusra Front, on Daesh and the regional states and world powers that stand behind them. It is understandable that they are angry, saddened and dismayed, and they offer their condolences, it is normal. And a few days ago, 2 or 3 weeks, they have insulted, reviled and slandered us, but let them act as they please. We understand their sadness and pain.

But with certainty, the vast majority of Lebanese are happy because without these (victorious) confrontations for several years to date, Daesh, the Al-Nusra Front and their like could have seized the Bekaa, the North and reached other places in Lebanon and we would have experienced a disaster. See what happened in the country and the societies around us (Syria, Iraq, Libya).

But it is also natural that the happiest people in the Second Liberation are our noble people of the Bekaa. They are the ones whose mountains, Jurds and fields, were attacked with car bombs and suicide bombers, against Hermel, Bekaa and Ras Baalbek, and the whole area was threatened upto all Zahle and the Bekaa, and now that this nightmare disappeared from their mountains, their hills, their Jurds, their homes and their lands, they sure are going to be the happiest of all. For they have suffered more than all, and in this battle, it is among them that there was the most sacrificed (martyrs).

It is true that our brothers, our families and the officers and soldiers of the Lebanese Army came from all regions of Lebanon and fought on this front, but there is no doubt that today in the Bekaa, there are no villages, especially in Baalbek-Hermel, in which are not found one, two or three martyrs, and one, two or three wounded. The Bekaa residents have also shaped this victory by the blood of their loved ones and their children, the apple of their eyes, the best elements among their young men. Not to mention the wounded who are still in the homes and in hospitals. Therefore it is normal that they are happy, congratulate themselves and take pride in this victory which is a national victory in general,but especially a victory for the Bekaa. […]

Lebanon's Second Liberation

الثلاثيّ الذهبيّ: عون وبري ونصرالله

 

الثلاثيّ الذهبيّ: عون وبري ونصرالله

ناصر قنديل

أغسطس 31, 2017

– في كلّ معضلة حطّت على لبنان وكانت خطة إسقاطه محققة منذ اغتيال الرئيس رفيق الحريري، وبعدها حرب تموز 2006، يظهر الثلاثي الذي يشكله الرئيس العماد ميشال عون والرئيس نبيه بري والسيد حسن نصرالله كبوليصة تأمين وطنية بوجه مخططات التخريب والإضعاف والتهوين والفتن، والتباينات أو التمايزات وحتى الخلافات بين الرئيسين عون وبري في محطات مختلفة من عمر السنوات العشر الماضية لم تستطع أن تجعلهما يبتعدان عن سلوك الخيارات الوطنية الكبرى ذاتها في اللحظات الصعبة والحرجة كلّها التي واجهها لبنان والمخاطر التي تعرّض لها.

– في حرب تموز كان حزب الله في خطوط القتال، والسيد حسن نصرالله يقود الحرب، وكان الرئيسان عون وبري جبهة الحماية السياسية والشعبية لظهر المقاومة، وكان بري لسان حالها في التفاوض، بينما كان عون محاميها الأول. وفي النصر الذي حققته المقاومة كان شريكا النصر، شريكين في صيغة التحالفات ما بعده، فكان الاعتصام الشعبي الممتدّ لعام ونصف العام تقريباً طلباً لحكومة وحدة وطنية يحميها الثلث الضامن، وصولاً لاتفاق الدوحة.

– في الاستحقاق الرئاسي ورغم ما باعدته الحسابات ظاهراً وشكلاً بقي الموقفان حتى الخواتيم السعيدة يحفظان التباينات تحت سقف الموقف الواحد، فلا يرد عند الرئيس بري خذلان حزب الله بالانفراد بخيار، ولا يرد في حساب حزب الله خيار رئاسي عنوان الإجماع الوطني في تظهيره، ولا في حساب العماد عون رئاسة تبدأ عهدها بالتصادم مع زعامة شعبية وسياسية وموقع دستوري، بمثل ما يمثل الرئيس بري.

– في العلاقة بسورية وقف أركان الثلاثي الذهبي متمسكاً بالدفاع عن دولتها المدنية الحامية للعيش المتعدّد، ومع رئيسها المتمسك بخيار الاستقلال الوطني وحماية المقاومة، وجيشها المواجه لخطر الإرهاب. وإذا كان حزب الله قد ترجم هذه المواقف بقتال وتضحيات كلفت نهراً جارياً من الشهداء، فإنّ كلاً من الرئيسين عون وبري بقيا ثابتين على الموقف نفسه في أحلك الظروف وأشدّها قسوة على سورية وصمدا بوجه الترهيب والترغيب اللذين استهدفا دفعهما لتغيير المواقف وتعديلها، وعلى ثباتهما سقطت أوهام كذبة النأي بالنفس المشؤومة، وحفظت معادلة الجيش والشعب والمقاومة.

– في الحرب على الإرهاب عندما دقّ باب لبنان، قدّم عون وبري الغطاء الشعبي والسياسي لمشاركة حزب الله في الحرب في سورية، وقدّماه كدفاع استباقي عن لبنان، وواصلا ذلك بقوة أشدّ عندما صار القتال في الأراضي اللبنانية، وفي الفصل الأخير من الحرب من جرود عرسال إلى جرود القاع ورأس بعلبك وصولاً للقلمون، كانا صوت المقاومة الصادح ودرعها الواقي بوجه حملات التشكيك ومحاولات الطعن.

– اليوم سيلتقي جمهور الثلاثيّ الذهبيّ في مهرجان النصر الذي دعا إليه السيد نصرالله، ومعهم جماهير حزب الله والمقاومة والأحزاب الحليفة والشريكة في خيار المقاومة، وسيكون هذا الاحتفال محطة تاريخية في حياة لبنان بحجم الحشود والتي سيشهدها وتنوّعها وتنوّع بيئاتها الاجتماعية والثقافية مقدّماً صورة عن لبنان المقاوم رغماً عن أنوف مدّعي تمثيل الإرادة اللبنانية، ومن خلفهم الخارج الذي سيرى بالعيون المفتوحة حجم الحشود، والذين سيُدهشهم جميعاً الحضور ويقفون بذهول أمام حجم التمثيل الذي يفتحون معركتهم السياسية معه.

Lebanon Speaker Hails Army-Resistance Victory over ISIL in Northeastern Outskirts

August 30, 2017

Speaker Berri-1

Lebanon Speaker Nabih Berri on Wednesday congratulated on all the Lebanese on the victory achieved by the Army and the Resistance in northeastern outskirts, hailing the sacrifices of the martyrs.

During a speech commemorating 39th anniversary of disappearance of Amal Movement founder Imam Sayyed Moussa al-Sadr, Berri said that “Imam al-Sadr taught us that every aggression requires resistance… He made us realize that Israel’s terrorism on the southern border is the other real face of takfiri terrorism.”

Speaker Nabih Berri also called on Amal movement’s followers to attend the ceremony held by Hezbollah in Bekaa to celebrate the victory over ISIL terrorists in the northeastern outskirts.

On Lebanon-Syria ties, Berri maintained that the two countries are a strategic need for each other… Syria represents Lebanon’s only land route to the world… and we’re still seeking its help as a source for electricity. We have treaties and agreements with it and we need to build a partnership the same as we did with Egypt.

On the abduction of Imam Sadr, Berri said that together with the media committee and the imam’s family, “we are mulling steps related to international law that are aimed at preserving the cause… The Imam and his two companions are still alive and should be liberated and there is no place for despair.”

“We call on the competent authorities in Lebanon, Libya and the Arab League to offer all the support needed to the committee following up on the case of Imam al-Sadr.”

In the context of carrying out the ceasefire agreement between Hezbollah and ISIL terrorist group in western Qalamoun, the fate of the Lebanese servicemen kidnapped by the takfiri militants was disclosed.

Lebanon General Security chief Abbas Ibrahim said that the Lebanese army and General Security units pulled out six corpses which “likely” belong to the servicemen, adding that DNA tests will be done to confirm this conclusion.

“Two more bodies were expected to be unearthed by the Lebanese army and General Security agency. We’re almost certain that these bodies belong to captive troops.”

Earlier, Hezbollah had regained the corpses of five martyrs from the terrorist group.

لماذا جمّد قائد الجيش المرحلة الرابعة وكيف يمكن لأميركا المساعدة؟

نصرالله دعا الى واقعية تحمي الجنود قبل الآخرين

الاميركيون لا يهتمون بمصير أيّ مدني، تماماً كما يفعلون الآن في العراق وفي سوريا (أ ف ب)

لماذا جمّد قائد الجيش المرحلة الرابعة وكيف يمكن لأميركا المساعدة؟

ابراهيم الأمين

تساءل كثيرون عن سبب الإطلالة الأخيرة للأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصرالله، لا سيما أن خطابه تضمن في قسم كبير منه عرضاً لمجريات عسكرية وأجندة عمل زمنية، كان بمقدور آخرين من قيادة الحزب أو غرفة عمليات المقاومة الاسلامية الحديث عنها. كذلك بدا للبعض أن السيد نصرالله لم يطلق مواقف خاصة في المناسبة، بل اكتفى بعرض وتقدير للموقف ورسم إطار للعمليات السياسية والعسكرية في المرحلة المقبلة.

لندع جانباً «تعفيسات» تيار «المستقبل» وحزب «القوات اللبنانية»، التي لا ينفع إيرادها خارج التقرير الصحافي الذي يصل ثامر السبهان كل يوم عن نشاط أصدقائه في لبنان.

لكن، قد يكون مناسباً الإشارة الى نقطتين مركزيتين في مداخلة السيد:

أولاً: إعلانه عن عيد تحرير جديد للبنان. وهو ربطه بمن أنجزه مباشرة، متحدثاً مرة جديدة عن ثلاثية الشعب والجيش والمقاومة، ومضيفاً الجيش العربي السوري. وهي إضافة تنطلق من كون الجيش السوري يقوم بعمل عسكري من الجانب السوري للحدود، بما يحقق النتيجة الفعلية لهدف لبنان إبعاد عناصر الارهاب من أراضيه ومن على حدوده. كذلك فإن الجيش السوري فتح الطريق أمام رجال المقاومة لتنفيذ خطة عسكرية تقوم أساساً على التنسيق مع الجيش اللبناني بغية مساعدته على تحقيق هدف «فجر الجرود».

لكن الأهم ليس إضافة السيد للضلع الرابع المتمثل بالجيش السوري، بل في كونه حسم وجزم بأنه لا وجود لشركاء آخرين في صناعة هذا النصر. وهو هنا يقصد الاميركيين الذين يريدون أن يظهروا كأنهم هم من وقف خلف قرار الجيش اللبناني بشنّ العملية، وأنهم من وفّر حاجات الجيش لأجل النجاح في مهمته.

والسيد هنا يقطع الطريق على محاولات لا تخصّ الاميركيين فقط، بل بعض الجماعات اللبنانية، وبينها أوساط نافذة داخل الجيش اللبناني، التي بدأت من اليوم الاول التهليل للدعم الاميركي.

ثانياً: ان السيد نصرالله أراد جعل النقاش حول المرحلة المقبلة واقعياً الى أبعد الحدود. فهو يعرف جيداً أسباب توقف الجيش عن شنّ هجوم المرحلة الرابعة. وهو يعلم أيضاً الحاجات اللوجستية والامنية والعسكرية التي يحتاج إليها الجيش، كما يحتاج إليها الجيش السوري والمقاومة لإنجاز المرحلة الاخيرة، خصوصاً أنها ستكون قاسية وتتطلب الى جانب العمل العسكري الدقيق قراراً كبيراً بتحمّل المسؤولية عن الأثمان المطلوبة لإنجازها، سواء لناحية الخسائر التي ستصيب المهاجمين، أو لجهة احتمال كبير بسقوط ضحايا مدنيين من بين العائلات الموجودة الى جانب المسلحين في الجرود.

وعندما كشف السيد عن مداولات قيادة المقاومة مع القيادة السورية بشأن المرحلة الاخيرة، إنما أراد فتح الباب أمام خيار منطقي ومعقول، يفرض البحث عن طريقة لإنجاز المهمة من خلال عمليات ضغط بالنار على المسلحين، بغية دفعهم الى الاستسلام. وهي عملية قد تستوجب في لحظة معينة، وهذا ما تدل عليه التجربة السورية، عقد تسوية مع هؤلاء المسلحين، وبالتالي، فإن عنوان أي تسوية يعقدها المسلحون تقضي بتوفير ممر آمن لهم كي ينتقلوا الى مناطق وجود تنظيمهم في سوريا، ما يعني الحاجة الفعلية الى التنسيق مع دمشق. وما قاله السيد عن مطلب دمشق التنسيق المباشر والرسمي والعلني، سيكون أضعف الإيمان في حال أراد الجميع، وخصوصاً الجانب اللبناني، إنهاء معركة الجرود بأسرع وقت وأقل كلفة.

ما لم يقله السيد في مداخلته، وما لا يرغب كثيرون في الحديث عنه، يتعلق بخطط الجيش خلال الايام الماضية، إذ عندما أبلغت قيادة الجبهة قائد الجيش بإنجاز المراحل الاولى التمهيدية، وأن القرار بالحسم يفترض حسابات من نوع مختلف، سارع العماد جوزيف عون الى التشاور مع ضباطه، وانتهى الى قرار وقف العمليات الهجومية. وهو ما دفعه الى زيارة القصر الجمهوري وإبلاغ الرئيس ميشال عون أن قيادة الجيش تحتاج الى وقت لمراجعة الموقف. وبعد عودته الى اليرزة، قال قائد الجيش أمام كبار الضباط إن تأخير العملية الحاسمة سيكون لمدة 36 ساعة فقط، وسيصار الى إطلاق المعركة صباح الخميس. لكن مساء الاربعاء، عاد وقرر تأجيلها الى صباح الجمعة، ثم عاد وأجّلها من دون تحديد موعد جديد لها.

لماذا فعل ذلك؟

Hezbollah and Syrian Army Units Finishing Off Terrorists of Al-Nusra

By Andre Vltchek

August 14, 2017 “Information Clearing House” –  It came unexpectedly, rapidly and with great force: on 21 July 2016, Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Syrian army from their side, in unison, attacked positions of the malevolent terrorist group, Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly known as Al-Nusra Front), in the mountainous province of Jroud Arsal in Bekaa Valley, on the border of two countries.

Simultaneously, the Lebanese Army surrounded and hermetically sealed the area around Arsal town, preventing new terrorist forces from entering the battle zone.

More than 150 militants were killed. Two dozen Hezbollah fighters lost their lives. Despite the difficult mountainous terrain, the battle was swift, heroic and well coordinated. The group was forced into accepting a ceasefire agreement, which went into effect on 27 July, and which stipulates that all of its fighters will be transferred by the army to a designated area inside Syria (Idlib).

Vanessa Beeley, Associate Editor of the 21st Century Wire, wrote this comment for my essay, literally from “the rubble of East Aleppo”:

“This is a momentous victory for the Resistance against the NATO and Gulf state terrorists. The black flags have been torn down in Arsal and the flags of Hezbollah, Lebanon and Syria are flying side by side as a symbol of the unity of anti-imperialist, anti-Zionist forces in the region. The heroes who gave their lives for this hard-won victory will always be remembered and honored by those whose lives and culture had been under threat from the malevolent forces of extremism and terrorism.”

Who are these terrorists, based for so long at both sides of the border?

The Nusra Front was al Qaeda’s official wing since the beginning of the Syrian war, but in 2016 it decided to split, at least formally, from its former mentor. It rapidly ‘reinvented’ itself. Now it is fighting as part of the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham Islamist Alliance, or more precisely, as its dominant force.

Lebanon has often been described as a time bomb, with dormant ISIS cells spread all over the country (even in the predominantly Christian areas), with al Qaeda first and Jabhat Fatah al-Sham later controlling several pockets in the north, and with the constant threat of an Israeli invasion from the south. Tiny Lebanon also has a notoriously weak government, and it is divided along religious lines. For years it has been facing perpetual refugee crises, with Palestinian refugees literally ‘stuck’ here for decades (with extremely limited rights), and with still more than one million Syrian refugees, most of them forced to flee the brutal war triggered by NATO and its allies in the Gulf.

As Hezbollah and the Syrian army were leading a decisive battle against the terrorists, the Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri was meeting U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington D.C., discussing, among other issues, additional U.S. sanctions against Hezbollah, which most Western countries label as a “terrorist group (either entire organization, or at least its military wing).”

On 26 July, Reuters reported:

“Standing beside Hariri in the White House Rose Garden, Trump said Hezbollah is a threat to Lebanon from within. He called the powerful Shi’ite Muslim group a “menace” to the Lebanese people and to the entire region… U.S. lawmakers introduced legislation last week seeking to increase sanctions on Hezbollah by further restricting its ability to raise money and recruit and increasing pressure on banks that do business with it.”

Mr. Hariri, a sworn enemy of Syria and its government, said nothing to contradict the U.S. leader. Born in Saudi Arabia (he holds both KSA and Lebanese citizenships), Mr. Hariri stood still, as Mr. Trump unleashed derogatory rhetoric against the only group in Lebanon which is capable of providing social services to all of its citizens, and which heroically defended Lebanon during the Israeli invasion.

As Trump spoke and Hariri obediently listened, shock waves were running through political and even financial circles in Lebanon. Here, life without Hezbollah would come to a total standstill, most social services would collapse, and the country would be virtually left exposed and defenseless.

“America’s assistance can help to ensure that the Lebanese army is the only defender Lebanon needs,” Trump said at a White House news conference. He made sure not to mention the amount of money or type of hardware the U.S. was willing to supply. No details were given. Mr. Hariri never dared to ask publicly.

Everyone in the Middle East knows clearly what all this could mean: perhaps the U.S. aid would increase the salaries of top military officers, and even buy few new fancy (US or EU made) weapons, but it would definitely not save Lebanon in case it was once again attacked by Israel, or if it were to be overrun by the huge number of NATO and Gulf-sponsored or directly supported Islamist extremists, who have already been infiltrated for years, into Syrian territory which is right across the border.

For now, however, there is much hope and plenty of reasons to celebrate, in both cities and countryside, all across Lebanon. Mr. Modar Nasr (not his real name), a leading young Syrian intellectual presently based in Beirut, explained to me:

What happened in Arsal showed that there is actually hope for a better Lebanon. For the first time in years the forces of ‘March 14” and “March 8” stood together to fight against Nusra and other terrorist factions. The operation was not only led by Hezbollah, but also by the Lebanese army and the Syrian army. That is why we saw this sweeping victory in battle expected to last at least one month.”

Now the next stage of this sweeping operation is just beginning. It consists of a frontal attack against Daesh (ISIS) in an adjacent area of the border zone.

On 28 July, the Lebanese Army was heavily engaged, using tanks, pounding positions of the Islamic State on the outskirts of Ras Baalbeck.

So far, everything has been going according to plan. That is, according to a plan created and being implemented by Hezbollah, Syria and the Lebanese Army.  

Where the U.S. and present Lebanese Prime Minister stand, is clear. It is also obvious that their designs do not coincide with the interests of the majority of the Lebanese people, and those from the entire region.

The leadership of Hezbollah reacted with civility and calm to the events in Washington. On June 26, The Daily Star in Beirut reported:

At the start of his televised speech Wednesday, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said he would not respond to comments made by U.S. President Donald Trump during his meeting with Prime Minister Saad Hariri earlier in the week, so as not to embarrass the Lebanese delegation to Washington.”

In reference to the ongoing battles, Hassan Nasrallah proclaimed:

“The objective is to have the armed groups that Nusra control exit from Lebanon to Syria… This is a righteous battle … anyone who is hesitant can ask the people [starting in Hermel] who used to have rockets rain down on them … and behind them all of Bekaa. Let them ask in the areas that suffered [the deaths of] martyrs from car bomb attacks and the areas who were on the verge of being targeted. Let him ask these questions of himself…”

“We took the decision. This is not an Iranian decision; it’s not Iran that told Hezbollah … it is not a Syrian decision, not even in Flita. We called the Syrian leadership and asked them for their help in this area because they had priorities elsewhere … this is an internal decision.”

The speech was concluded by a clear message of defiance and confidence, sent across the ocean to the United States:

Our people today are afraid of no one … not a [Donald] Trump, or a [George] Bush or a [Barack] Obama or [Ariel] Sharon.”

The balance of power in the Middle East is rapidly changing. The West is discredited, and so are several of its allies. The involvement of Russia and to some extent China, has reassured various regional powers and movements that are fighting, directly or indirectly against both Western occupations and interventions. Countries located as far away as Afghanistan, are watching closely, with great interest.
