Is Lebanon the Middle East's next domino?
Having driven forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad out of the Golan Heights, the ISIS Islamist terrorists have set their sights on Lebanon
Rebel forces on Monday expanded their control even further, as
forces of the Lebanese-based terror group Hezbollah reportedly clashed
with Syrian rebels in the Qalmoun mountain region, near the
Syrian-Lebanese border in the south of Lebanon.
Security sources told the Lebanese Al Mustaqbal paper about
the clashes, noting "Hezbollah soldiers were forced to retreat from the
area amid night strikes by Assad warplanes in the area."
Hezbollah has sent soldiers in the past to aid Assad in Syria, where a
Shi'ite axis has been formed between the Iran-proxy terror group,
Assad, and Iran. Rebel forces have been encroaching into Lebanese
territory as that policy has come home to roost, with the brutal Islamic
State (IS, formerly ISIS) recently conquering parts of Lebanon.
Hezbullah is accusing ISIS of seeking to ignite sectarian strife in Lebanon
Lebanese MP Mohammad Raad, who head's the Hezbollah bloc in Lebanon's parliament, stressed that the country's army and his Shi'ite Islamist group were capable of defeating Islamic State's Sunni extremists.
Raad condemned Islamic State, accusing the Sunni terror group of seeking to ignite sectarian strife in Lebanon with the capture, along with Syrian Islamists, in August of a group of Lebanese soldiers.
“There is no need for fear at all. The Lebanese Army and the Resistance are very well capable of using the appropriate antidote with the monsters,” the Daily Star quoted Raad as saying.
"If ISIS is conspiring to sow strife and chaos between the components of the country, we should prevent it from achieving its goals by rejecting sedition," he added.
Islamic State militants have beheaded two captive Lebanese soldiers among a group of 19 soldiers since militants, including fighters affiliated with Islamic State, raided the Lebanese border town of Arsal in August.
It sure doesn't sound like Hezbullah is capable of handling this. As long as they stay away from Israel... faster, faster....
