Once former allies and now bitter enemies, the al-Qaeda vs Hizb’Allah fight has now spread out of Syria and into the latter group’s homeland. Hizb’Allah has put iots forces on alert after one of its patrols was ambushed by Syrian al-Qaeda (the al-Nusra Front) in Southern Lebanon. This is the first act committed by al-Qaeda against its former ally in Lebanon.
Hezbollah has announced that its ranks are now on full alert in eight overlapping Lebanese-Syrian border towns following an attack that was carried out by Syria’s Al-Nusra Front against a Hezbollah patrol.
“Hezbollah had reached an agreement with the Free Syrian Army by means of direct talks to keep these towns away from the ongoing conflict in Syria,” Lebanese sources told Turkish Anadolu news agency on Wednesday.
The sources also said that “thirteen Al-Nusra Front members attacked a Hezbollah patrol in the Lebanese southern town of Zeeta which led to the death of three of the Shiite group’s members.”
“Hezbollah had previously placed a number of cannons and missiles in [Syria’s southern] towns, these armaments have been there since before the uprising began in Syria,” they added.
The al-Qaeda vs. Hizb’Allah fight is a case of evil vs. evil. Let these 2 evil entities kill each other!
