40 Hezbollah fighters
killed in Syria fighting

BEIRUT - Forty Hezbollah fighters were killed Thursday in an ambush in the Syrian flashpoint town of Rankous, near the Lebanese border.

 

A Free Syrian Army member identifying himself as Abu Omar Shatout told NOW that the ambush was carried out in farmland on the outskirts of the town.

 

Shatout added that a Hezbollah commander called Abu Abbas, who was responsible for coordination between the party’s troops and Iraqi Shiite militias operating in Syria, was one of the dead.

 

The report comes just five days after Twenty-nine Hezbollah fighters were reported killed in the town, during clashes with Syrian opposition forces.

 

Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah announced in May 2013 that his party was fighting alongside the regime of President Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian civil war, now in its fourth year.

A Hezbollah commander called Abu Abbas, who was responsible for coordination between the party’s troops and Iraqi Shiite militias operating in Syria, was one of the dead.

    So ya "Party of Resistance", how does it feel that more Hizbollah terrorists have died fighting against other Arabs than were killed by Israel? Gotten a clue yet? Are the lights still off upstairs? What a loathsome sectarian outfit.
