“The victory in Mosul is major. It’s as clear as the sun that the Obama administration established ISIS, and there is proof of this within the American government.”
The above quote from Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah is taken from an Israeli website here. The report concerns a speech Nasrallah gave on Tuesday in which he praised Iraqi forces for their liberation of the city of Mosul. You can read more about the speech at Al Manar and at Press TV (h/t summitflyer).
Israeli writer Dov Lieber sneeringly refers to Hezbollah as a “Shiite terror group” in one of his latest articles for the Times of Israel. Based on a report published over a Lebanese website, the article asserts that Russia and Hezbollah are now engaged in “official” military coordination in Syria.
This Hezbollah fighter was reportedly killed in fighting in Aleppo
Hezbollah and crowds bade on Tuesday farewell to two of his martyrs, commander Hatem Hmede and mujahid Jalal Affe, in Beirut’s Dahiyeh where they were laid to rest in Rawdat Shahidayn cemetery.
Norman Finkelstein, academic and author of such books as The Holocaust Industry and Beyond Chutzpah, has offered some rather striking comments regarding Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah. Lebanon has been observing the 10th anniversary of the July 2006 War in which Hezbollah inflicted heavy losses on Israeli forces, killing 121 of their soldiers while also capturing or destroying a large number of Israeli tanks. A good many of those tanks are on display to day at the Hezbollah Museum in southern Lebanon, which I had an opportunity to visit in 2014. You can go here to check out my report on that.
You can also go here to see an excerpt from a speech Nasrallah gave just a few days ago in which he discusses how the US created ISIS, or Daesh.
[Ed. note – Apparently Mustafa Badreddine, the Hezbollah commander killed yesterday in Syria, was hit by Takfiri terrorist artillery rather than a strike from Israel as was initially reported. ]
Hezbollah announced on Saturday the result of investigations conducted over the martyrdom of Hezbollah martyr leader Sayyed Mustafa Badreddine near Damascus airport.
[Ed. note – The US-backed “moderate” rebel group Ahrar al-Sham is believed to have been behind a bloody massacre that took place Thursday in the Syrian town of Zara. The mainly Alawite town is located some 12 miles northwest of Aleppo near the Turkish border. The slaughter in the town came one day before an Israeli attack in Damascus that killed a Hezbollah commander–and on the same day that Turkish President Recep Erdogan hinted at the possibility of sending troops into Syria.
