Syrian forces with Hezbollah fighters Kill 175 Wahabi Terrorist in an Ambush


Syrian Force with Hezbollah fighters Kill 175 InsurgentsJNN 27 Feb 2014 Damascus : Forces loyal to Syria’s president , In Collabration with the Hezbollah fighters killed at least 175 Wahabi / Salafi Terrorists , most of them foreigners, in an ambush in insurgent-held eastern outskirts of Damascus, state media said on Wednesday.

The attack was led by the Lebanese Shi’ite militant group Hezbollah, which has joined the government in a increasingly sectarian conflict that is pulling in fighters from across the region and destabilizing Syria’s neighbors, said activists.

Lebanon’s Al Manar television, which Hezbollah operates, broadcast images of dozens of bodies of men strewn along a rural road running through open fields near Otaiba, a town in the Eastern Ghouta area outside Damascus.

It said the Islamists were ambushed as they tried to leave the area to join fighting in other regions. But there were few other details on the attack and none of the reports said when it happened.

The ambush would be a significant advance for President Bashar al-Assad’s efforts to cement his hold of the capital and surrounding roads, if the scale of the casualties is confirmed.

It also underlined the complexity of a fight where Sunni Muslim Islamist groups, some of them linked to al Qaeda, have joined mostly Sunni Syrian rebels against Assad, who comes from an offshoot of Shi’ite Islam.

Assad has won the backing of Shi’ite powers Hezbollah and Iran.

SAUDIS, QATARIS, CHECHENS WAHABI TERRORISTS

Syrian state news agency SANA said most of those killed were Saudi, Qatari or Chechen nationals and belonged to the al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front or Liwa al-Islam, a        Wahabi / Salafist Jihadi group that is one of the biggest and best organized Terrorist units fighting to topple Assad.

Syria’s conflict began in March 2011 with street demonstrations demanding democratic reform, but turned into an armed uprising after Saudi & US Intelligence agencies Hijacked the demonstrations and Infested thousands of Foreign Insurgents in Syria for Destabilizing the Democratically elected Govt of Bashar al Asad.

Around 140,000 people have been killed in three years of fighting, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a monitoring group opposed to Assad.

The Observatory said Hezbollah carried out the ambush in cooperation with Syrian government forces.

“Hezbollah was the main group that implemented the ambush,” said Rami Abdulrahman, head of the Observatory, which is based in Britain but has a network of sources across Syria.

Al Manar said the fighters were trying to break out of Eastern Ghouta to join battles in either the town of Deraa or the Qalamoun mountains but it was not possible to confirm the report independently.

The Eastern Ghouta region is a semi-circle of rural towns outside Damascus, many of which have been badly effected by the ongoing fighting between the Terrorist Network and the Govt forces , which has even created shortage of food and other supplies for months .

In recent weeks, pro-Assad forces have taken control of much of the Qalamoun area in a bid to cut off a rebel supply route to Lebanon and secure a broad swath of territory between Damascus and Assad’s coastal stronghold in Latakia.

Wahabi Terrorist Stone to Death a Young Girl for Operating a Facebook Account in Syria


Syrian Girl Stone to Death By Wahabi TerroristJNN 19 Feb 2014 Rakka, Syria: A young girl was stoned to death by Wahabi Terrorist groups in Syria for operating Facebook account.

Fatoum Al-Jassem was taken to One of a Self Made Sharia court after she was caught using the social networking website, in Rakka, Syria. The Sharia court declared that using a Facebook account amounts to adultery and the girl should be punished by stoning, according to a news report published in Iran’s FARS news agency which quoted a report published in Arabic-language Al-Rai Al-Youm.

The members of the Al-Qaeda group in Iraq, also known as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) were behind the incident.

The ISIS, or Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, is an Pure Wahabi / Salafi group based in Iraq. They have been fighting an active war against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Syria and the government forces in Iraq.

The group’s ideology is based on extremely strict Ale Saud’s interpretation of Islam.

Ironically, the Al-Nusra Front operates a Facebook account of its own.

A Girl Strangled to Death as per the Punishment Declared by the Wahabi Terrorist , who rule some parts of War Torn Syria .

But War in Syria has so far claimed over 1,40,000 lives and forced millions of people to seek refuge in neighbouring countries. Historians have described the war as one of the most tragic in recent times.

Few days ago, a video was uploaded by Syrian Observatory of Human Rights showing execution of young girl. In the video, a hooded executioner can be seen strangling a girl with a metal wire.

The news report published in Iran’s Press TV claims that the girl was put to death because she refused to recognize the beliefs and diktats of the group.

This is the second incident in which ISIS has been caught exercising excess on innocent civilians. Few days ago, a girl was allegedly stoned to death for operating a Facebook account.

The stoning was ordered by the Sharia Court in Syria’s Rakka.

The veracity of the video could not be verified by the Independent sources , but Syrian Observatory of Human Rights claim that execution was carried out by the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL).

Powerful Shia Cleric Moqtada Sadr Announces His Retirement from Politics ahead of Iraqi elections


Muqtada Sadr Announces His Retirement from the Politics

JNN 19 Feb 2014 Baghdad : Powerful Shia cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, leader of a major political movement and a key figure in post-Saddam Iraq, was a fierce critic of the U.S.-led invasion, chief of a once-feared militia and political kingmaker, has announced his retirement from politics two months before elections.

Sadr who wears the black turban as a sign of being “syed ” or descendant of the Prophet Mohammad PBUH , gained widespread popularity in the months after the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

His rise, aided by the reputations of two famed relatives – including his father, Grand Ayatollah Mohammad Mohammad Sadiq al-Sadr – Martyred during Saddam Hussein’s rule, eventually translated into political power.

The decision, if confirmed as permanent, brings to a close a political career that began with his fierce opposition to the U.S. military presence in Iraq, and has spanned more than a decade.

“I announce my non-intervention in all political affairs and that there is no bloc that represents us from now on, nor any position inside or outside the government nor parliament,” Sadr said in a written statement received by AFP on Sunday.

Ahead of legislative elections in April, Sadr’s movement currently holds six cabinet posts as well as 40 seats in the 325-member parliament.

After the invasion which toppled Saddam, Sadr commanded the Mahdi Army militia, which fought fierce battles with American and Iraqi government forces, and he was identified by the Pentagon in 2006 as the biggest threat to US Forces .

The Mahdi Army – estimated to have had up to 60,000 members – was once the most active and feared armed Shiite group in the country, and was a sign of terror for the takfiri’s and the Wahabi Terrorist ,working for the Instability of Iraq.

But in August 2008, Sadr suspended the activities of the Mahdi Army after major conflicts with the U.S. and Iraqi forces and assaults on its strongholds in Baghdad and southern Iraq.

Following the ceasefire, U.S. military commanders said Sadr’s action had been instrumental in helping bring about a significant decrease in the levels of violence across Iraq.

He nonetheless continued his vocal opposition to the U.S. military presence in Iraq.

Sadr repeatedly called for a total U.S. pullout and threatened attacks if it was not carried out, as Washington and Baghdad held negotiations on a possible post-2011 U.S. training mission that was ultimately not approved.

He also said his movement’s political offices will be closed, but that others related to social welfare, media and education will remain open.

It was not immediately clear if the move was temporary or permanent, with Sadrist officials saying they had been taken by surprise and could not clarify.

One official from Sadr’s office told AFP that no one wanted to discuss the issue “because it was a surprise decision.”

“I do not think it will be reversed… because it is a very strong decision,” the official added.

Sadr said the decision to leave politics was taken from the standpoint of Islamic law and of “preserving the honorable reputation of Sadr, especially of the two Sadr martyrs,” referring to his father and another relative who were martyred during Saddam Hussein’s rule.

Sadr’s political career began with his fierce opposition to the presence of foreign troops in Iraq after the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of the country that toppled Saddam.

His rise was aided by the famed reputation of his father Mohammed Sadiq, who was killed along with two of Moqtada’s brothers in 1999 by gunmen allegedly sent by Saddam, and another relative, Mohammed Baqir, who was executed in 1980.

Moqtada’s movement subsequently gained both seats in parliament and cabinet posts, and played the role of political kingmaker.

Sadr suspended the militia’s activities in 2008 following fierce battles with Iraqi and U.S. security forces.

He left the country at the end of 2006 or the beginning of 2007, according to U.S. and Iraqi officials, and reportedly pursued religious studies in the Iranian holy city of Qom.

Sadr returned in early 2011, and then shuttled between Qom and Najaf, his base south of Baghdad. But he showed he could still pull powerful political strings even during his self-imposed exile.

After throwing his weight behind Shiite politician Nouri al-Maliki in 2006, ensuring he became prime minister, Sadr then ordered his followers to pull out of the premier’s cabinet the next year, almost bringing down the government.

Sadr’s bloc contested the 2010 legislative election in an alliance with the Supreme Iraqi Islamic Council, another Shiite group with its Backing from Iran.

Both before and after the U.S. military withdrawal in late 2011, Sadr was a sharp critic of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, despite ultimately backing his selection as premier in both 2006 and 2010.

In 2012, Sadr was among Iraqi politicians who called for Maliki to resign, and said his MPs would vote to sack the premier if needed.

But Maliki ultimately weathered the crisis, and Sadr’s focus has increasingly shifted to religious studies.

Sadr’s attention has since increasingly turned to his religious studies, and away from politics. But despite only making rare appearances in public, the cleric is idolized by millions of Shiites

 

Militants Surrender to Syrian Govt., Hassan Nasrullah reaffirms his support for Asad’s Govt.


Terrorist surrender to Syrian Govt forcesJNN 19 Feb 2014 Damascus : Militants in the Rif Dimashq Governorate in the southwestern part of the country have surrendered themselves to government forces to put an end to a painful period during which the armed terrorist groups wreaked havoc in region. Hassan Nasrallah reaffirm support for the Bashar Al Asad’s Government .

According to Al-Alam correspondent in Syria, gunmen in Babila, Beit Sahim, Yalda and Aqraba towns in Damascus countryside handed over their weapons to army troops after they recognized the terrorists aimed at destroying Syria.

Several families have returned to their homes in the towns after government forces gained full control of region.

The move came after the militants and the government reached a deal, which prepares the ground for return of civilians to their homes.

On February 5, Syria’s Committee of National Reconciliation said more than 1,200 Syrian families had returned home in the south of the country following a truce brokered by the committee.

Many hope for similar truce deals aimed at ending the fierce fighting between the Syrian army and Takfiri militants in other parts of the crisis-torn country.

Pro-Hezbollah song angers Syrian opposition

Meanwhile, a song saluting Hezbollah’s campaign against foreign-backed militants in the Qalamoun region of Syria has outraged members of the Syrian opposition.

Ali Barakat, a singer of religious anthems, posted the video on YouTube Thursday.

The video has received more than 40,000 views and several other YouTube postings of the song have also appeared, meaning an even higher viewership.

The nearly six-minute-long anthem “Ihsam Nasrak bi Yabroud,” addressed to the party and its supporters, can be loosely translated as “Achieve your decisive victory in Yabroud.”

The song’s lyrics, which salute Hezbollah’s role in earlier campaigns against the towns of Nabk and Qusair, and label the Syrian militants as “takfiri” extremists, enraged opposition supporters.

The video that accompanies the song features a map of the area, with the yellow Hezbollah flag planted in and fluttering over Yabroud.

It also contains shots of the party’s fighters conducting mock battles, mixed with actual footage of military operations, presumably from the resistance movement’s earlier exploits in Syria.

Hassan Nasrallah Reaffirm’s His Stance to Back Asad’s Govt

Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said Sunday that his party would fight on in Syria despite the wave of car bombings targeting predominantly Shia areas in Lebanon controlled by the group.

“I will not repeat what I explained before about the reason we went to Syria and why we are staying where we should be,” Nasrallah said during a televised speech commemorating three martyred Hezbollah leaders.

Nasrallah warned that takfiri forces posed a threat to the entire region and that all of Lebanon was a target. “Lebanon is targeted by these takfiri groups and they would have come sooner or later regardless of our involvement in Syria,” he said.

He also accused Israel and the United States of benefiting from takfiri plots in the region.

Nasrallah has argued that his party’s military intervention in Syria is designed to protect Lebanon from the threat of al-Qaeda-linked takfiri factions blamed for a string of deadly car bombings and suicide attacks in areas where Hezbollah enjoys wide support.

The Hezbollah chief, whose group has been fighting alongside the government troops in Syria, warned that if extremists gain control of war-torn Syria, the repercussions would be felt throughout the Middle East.

“If these [takfiri groups] win in Syria, and God willing they will not, Syria will become worse than Afghanistan,” he said.

“If these armed groups win, will there be a future for the Future Movement in Lebanon? Will there be a chance for anyone other than [takfiris] in the country?”

Nasrallah vowed his group would emerge victorious in the battle against these groups. “We are convinced that we will win in this battle; it is just a matter of time.”

He insisted the group’s presence in Syria was worth all the sacrifices made by his fighters and supporters in Lebanon, and appealed to his followers to be patient. “This blood, wounds, patience and perseverance are part of the battle, and yes, it is worth it so that we do not lose our land, so that our children are not slaughtered and our property stolen.”

“It is normal that some martyrs should fall … they [our enemies] lie and tell us ‘withdraw from Syria and we will leave you alone in Lebanon,’ but if these [takfiri forces] gain control over border areas with Lebanon, we will see even more car bombings.”

Nasrallah urged the Arab states to help end the 3-year-old war in Syria in order to prevent strife spreading to the entire region. Addressing the Lebanese and all Arab states, he said: “If you want to avert an endless strife in the region, stop the war on Syria and allow the Syrians to reconcile.”

Nasrallah also appealed to Palestinian factions to “prevent the exploitation” of Palestinians by groups fighting Hezbollah.

He said that some parties were trying to stoke hostilities between Palestinians living in refugee camps and their Shia neighbors.

“I tell our Palestinian brothers, it is not enough to issue statements condemning bombings because there are some who are trying to exploit the Palestinians to achieve their goals,” he said.

Nasrallah also said that his group and its ally, the Amal Movement, were the ones who made “sacrifices” to allow the formation of a new government by dropping their demand for a 9-9-6 Cabinet proposal.

“Partnership is needed in Lebanon; we support having a state and we support partnership despite the disputes,” he said.

Syrian Govt Supremacy over the Present Scenario , Frustrates US and Saudi Monarchy


Saudi Sponsored Syrian Terrorist

JNN 15 Feb 2014 Damascus : Frustrated by the deadlock of the second round of Geneva 2 talks, Saudi Arabia has reportedly offered to supply the rebels with anti-aircraft missiles. Meanwhile Russia has accused the US of once again hijacking peace talks and pushing for regime change.

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, Russian-made antitank guided missiles and Chinese man-portable air-defense systems are up for grabs, already waiting in warehouses in Jordan and Turkey.

An Arab diplomat and several opposition figures with knowledge of the Saudi efforts have told WSJ that these supplies are likely to tip the battlefield scales, as the rebels will become capable of taking on the government’s air power and destroying heavy armored vehicles.

“New stuff is arriving imminently,” a Western diplomat with knowledge of the planned weapons deliveries told the American publication.

Leaders of the Syrian opposition said they don’t yet know the total amount of military aid that will be shipped. The new weapons are expected to reach southern Syria from Jordan while the opposition in the north will get arms from Turkey, the Western diplomat said.

Raising fears that civilian aircraft may eventually become targets, last June several media outlets suggested that Saudi Arabia had already begun supplying anti-aircraft launchers and missiles to militants in Syria. But so far Saudi Arabia, as well as the US, has been officially opposed to arming the rebels with big guns and antiaircraft missiles as they could fall into extremist hands.

According to the WSJ report, rebel commanders struck a deal on the new armaments shipment during a meeting with US and Saudi intelligence agents in Jordan on January 30. During that meeting, rebels allegedly claimed that their new military gains would help force official Damascus consider President Assad’s ouster and bring forward a political solution to the conflict.

Mercenaries on US payroll?

The Wall Street Journal also reports that their rebel sources claimed the US government is paying their salaries to fight the Assad forces. The Southern Front brigades allegedly received $3 million in cash in salaries during the two meetings in Jordan, one held on January 30 and the other late last year.

Meanwhile, congressional aides told the WSJ about scheduled meetings with Syrian opposition leaders next week. The Syrian delegation will allegedly seek extra armaments in order to battle al-Qaeda and al-Nusra elements.

“We’re trying to assure the international community that they can support moderates without the threat of arms falling into the hands of al-Qaeda,” said Oubai Shahbandar, a senior adviser to the Syrian opposition. Saudi Arabia and US have so far refused to comment.

Geneva 2 stalemate

As the second round of Geneva 2 talks so far fails to produce any results, the Russian Foreign Minister has criticized the American stance at the negotiations accusing it of hijacking the talks for the purpose of “regime change” in Syria.

“The only thing they want to talk about is the establishment of a transitional governing body,” Sergey Lavrov said Friday after meeting with the German foreign minister in Moscow. “Only after that are they ready to discuss the urgent and most pressing problems, like terrorism.”

According to the WSJ report, rebel commanders struck a deal on the new armaments shipment during a meeting with US and Saudi intelligence agents in Jordan on January 30. During that meeting, rebels allegedly claimed that their new military gains would help force official Damascus consider President Assad’s ouster and bring forward a political solution to the conflict.

After five days of negotiations the opposition has accused the government’s team of “belligerence,”while the government delegation said that the opposition have an “unrealistic agenda.”

“The negotiations are not moving toward a political solution,” said Louay Safi, a spokesman for the Syrian opposition delegation, accusing the government side of adopting a hostile stance.

“I deeply regret to say that this round did not achieve any progress,” Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said. “We came to the Geneva conference to implement Syria’s declared position to reach a political solution. … Unfortunately the other side came with another agenda, with an unrealistic agenda.”

The UN’s Lakhdar Brahimi, curator of the talks, plans to meet the sides on Saturday, the final day for round two of the negotiations, but it remains unclear if he can offer any prospect of drawing the warring parties closer together.
