Syrian rebels claim successful attack on Hezbollah
Terrorists fighting other terrorists. Gotta love it.
Syrian rebels said they attacked and destroyed a convoy carrying Hezbollah operatives and officers of the regime’s army near the Lebanese border on Tuesday.
Trucks carrying the fighters, including a high-ranking Syrian officer, were blown up by landmines planted on the Beirut-Damascus highway after the rebels were informed of the convoy’s route, a statement by the Free Syrian Army said. According to the statement, all of the passengers were killed in the explosion.
The convoy was reportedly en route to Lebanon, where its members were slated to meet an unnamed security official.
…“An FSA brigade launched two consecutive attacks at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, the first of which targeted a group of Hezbollah fighters in the western Qusayr district in Syria, killing or wounding all of its members,” the statement read. The attack was carried out with machine guns and antitank rockets against two four-wheel-drive vehicles used by Hezbollah.
In the second attack, several FSA brigades attacked with mortar shells a Hezbollah artillery position in the Hosh al-Sayyed Ali area inside Lebanon and “achieved direct hits,” according to the statement.
Meanwhile there are reports that Hezbollah terrorist leader Hassan Nasrallah is very sick from cancer.
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has been flown to Tehran for emergency medical treatment with severe cancer-related complications, the Lebanese radio station the Voice of Lebanon reported on Monday.
A different report from Lebanon claimed that Nasrallah was flown to Iran after he was wounded in an attack by Syrian rebels during a meeting he was attending.
The reports are attributed to “senior Hezbollah officials,” but there were no official confirmation of the reports from any other source.
According to the reports, Nasrallah’s deputy, Naim Kassem, has assumed command of the terrorist organization.
