Army soldiers beat Assir
follower in video

Army interrogation

A video posted Wednesday on YouTube shows members of the Lebanese army interrogating and beating a man identified as Hassan who used to work with radical Sunni cleric Ahmad al-Assir.

 

Hassan, whose accent indicates that he is a Syrian, said he had been associated with Assir since 2005, but added that the Sheikh did not pay him for his services.

 

The man denied that he participated along with Assir in the clashes against the Lebanese army and claimed that he stopped sympathizing with the cleric after he engaged in clashes with the army.

 

The officer then ordered that the man’s hands be tied, and the soldiers started to kick him and shout “beat Hassan.”

 

Clashes erupted early Sunday afternoon in the southern city of Sidon when supporters of attacked the Lebanese army reportedly following the LAF’s arrest of the cleric’s bodyguard Fadi Beirouti and his brother-in-law. 

 

On Monday, troops seized control of Assir’s headquarters after his supporters battled the army for two days, resulting in the death of 17 soldiers.

    IMPORTANT, URGENT I'VE BEEN TRYING TO SEND THIS INFO FOR MOST LEBANESE OUTLETS I hereafter provide you with very important information I got from a very important source pertaining to the recent conflict in ABRA, Sayda, Lebanon. This is very cogent information that I am providing you with. Regardless weather you can confirm this information or not, at least PLEASE quote it as an “anonymous and reliable source”. You are free to call the source what ever. BUT PLEASE INFORM …This is important so that the Lebanese people know what REALLY happened in ABRA. Please you must broadcast the following facts: 1- All the military personnel from the Lebanese Army that were FIRST killed on the first day of the conflict that sparked the whole conflict and the consequent battle that ended a few days later were shot by Hezbollah special forces with high powered sniper rifles and other tactical weapons from areas overlooking and surrounding the Lebanese army checkpoint. 2- The whole incident that sparked the battle that took place in ABRA was planned by Hezbollah. 3- The source confirmed that during the battle of ABRA those who were in charge of implementing the Hezbollah plan caused MOST of the fatalities and injuries among the Lebanese Army military personnel. It is a shame that no INDEPENDENT , detailed, and professional autopsies were ordered and no reports were allowed to see the light about the injuries of those who died or injured from the Lebanese Army personnel. 4- One unit from the same Hezbollah group was in charge of kidnaping or capturing Sheikh Ahmad Al Aseer alive. The plan was adjusted immediately after Al Aseer video called for the military to disobey the orders of their commanders. The new plan was that the Hezbollah unit responsible for kidnapping Al Aseer was to wear Lebanese Army military uniforms and pretend to join Al Aseer militia as Lebanese Army defectors while in fact it was an alibi to infiltrate the well-guarded Al-Aseer complex.

    PART 2 OF 2 4- One unit from the same Hezbollah group was in charge of kidnaping or capturing Sheikh Ahmad Al Aseer alive. The plan was adjusted immediately after Al Aseer video called for the military to disobey the orders of their commanders. The new plan was that the Hezbollah unit responsible for kidnapping Al Aseer was to wear Lebanese Army military uniforms and pretend to join Al Aseer militia as Lebanese Army defectors while in fact it was an alibi to infiltrate the well-guarded Al-Aseer complex. 5- The Source mentioned (but could NOT confirm the rest of the information) that claims that Sheikh Ahmad Al Aseer was captured and kidnapped by the Hezbollah unit along with Fadil Shaker , and moved to a secured Hezbollah location where they were violently tortured. At this point the source that is very reliable mentioned that he could NOT confirm if Sheikh Ahmad Al Aseer was dead or alive, but he was “told” that the Hezbollah unit Leader was heard saying “If Moussa El Sader was found, Al Aseer will be found.” 6- More detailed information about the close range shooting that took place inside the Bin Rabah Mosque is to follow soon with proof. I have great trust in you. You don’t have to adopt these facts but it is your professional duty to report and inform the Lebanese people.
