BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:35 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah will participate in the upcoming offensive along the Lebanese border, a military source in Damascus told Al-Masdar tonight.

When asked what the Syrian government’s opinion on some members of the Lebanese Parliament rejecting the SAA’s participation in the upcoming Qalamoun offensive, the source told Al-Masdar that the decision is final.

“Damascus is not concerned with the words of a few politicians. The army and Hezbollah will liberate every part of the border,” the source stated.

On Wednesday, some Lebanese MPs argued that no member of the government should work with the Syrian authorities, despite the fact Da’esh occupies both sides of the border in the Qalamoun Mountains.

The Lebanese Army is also participating in the offensive, targeting the Islamic State’s last positions in the Ras Ba’albak region of the Beqa’a Governorate.

I doubt that the Lebanese Army has the training or expertise to fight ISIS.

Was only when Hezbollah joined the fight did the terrorist advance stall. Hezbollah has been guarding that region since.

Lebanon needs to learn who their champions are.

Corruption in the government has lead to the Lebanese army being weakened. It does need to be rebuilt, retrained, and reequipped. They don’t even have an airforce.

WILL TO FIGHT Lebanese Christians Gun Up Against ISIS Allying themselves with the Shiite militant group Hezbollah, some Lebanese Christians are standing their ground against ISIS. Nasrallah says his men, most of whom he says also fought in the civil war, have managed to do what the Lebanese army had been incapable of: Secure the border with Syria just outside Ras Baalbek. RAS BAALBEK, Lebanon—Rifaat Nasrallah sits impatiently on a sofa in his home in the small village of Ras Baalbek sipping coffee and chain smoking Marlboro Lights. A handgun casually stuck in the waistband of his jeans, he says… Read more »

How amusing. So effectively some Lebanese MP’s try to dictate to Syria how Syria should NOT clear ISIS from their own Territory on the border with Lebanon. I am pleased to hear it is not only the UK and USA that has MP’s that need an IQ and Psychometric Test and evicting if they fail it.

Lebanese should pay attention to who these MPs are, because they’re showing themselves as US/Israel stooges.

Vote them out next chance.

Or just assassinate them, for they are traitors and friends of Israel.
