FSA official urges Lebanon Sunnis to threaten Hezbollah

A Free Syrian Army official in Homs called on residents of two predominantly Sunni Lebanese towns to threaten and impede Hezbollah's alleged military activities in Syria's Homs province.

 

“We hope that [Tripoli and Arsal residents] will… cut [Hezbollah’s] supply lines to Syria, and that they will [seek to prevent] Hezbollah from shelling their positions,” Hadi al-Abdallah said in a video posted on YouTube.

 

The FSA official urged Tripoli and Arsal residents to help the rebels in the Syrian border town of Qusayr and the greater Homs region, “because Qusayr’s fall is not only dangerous for Homs’ Sunnis, but also endangers the Sunnis living in Tripoli and Arsal.”

 

The Syria rebel ended his message to the Lebanese by urging them to “provide the rebels with weapons and ammunition.”

 

“Homs desperately needs you,” Abdallah said.

 

The Syria rebel ended his message to Lebanon's "free Sunnis" by urging them to “provide the rebels with weapons and ammunition.”

 

“Homs desperately needs you,” Abdallah said.

 

The rebel Free Syrian Army on Tuesday released a statement giving the Lebanese group Hezbollah 48 hours to cease attacks in Syria before it “retaliates” in Lebanon.

 

A Free Syrian Army spokesperson on Sunday told NOW that Hezbollah was shelling several Syrian areas in an effort to fight the rebels, and claimed the Shiite party was now stationed in five Syrian towns.

 

Further allegations of Hezbollah being actively involved in the Syrian crisis came from another FSA official who on Tuesday told NOW that Hezbollah will carry out more military operations on Syrian territory in upcoming days.

 

The Syrian crisis has split Lebanon’s political scene between pro-Syrian regime parties affiliated with the March 8 alliance – spearheaded by Hezbollah- and parties associated with the March 14 coalition who are backing the rebels.
