Lebanese Hezbollah has began handing over its positions on the Syrian-Lebanese border to the Lebanese Army.

On Friday, Hezbollah fighters handed over its positions near Ballat Tufail, Juroud Brital, Ham and Ma’raboun in the eastern chain of the Lebanese mountains.

Earlier this week, Hezbollah Leader, Hassan Nasrallah, that Hezbollah will hand over all its points on the Syrian-Lebanese border to the Lebanese Army after it had successfully secured the borders.

Nasrallah also announced that Hezbollah is ready to provide a safe evacuation of militants and their families from the Jaroud Arsal area to any opposition-held area in Syria. Nasrallah added that Hezbollah is also ready to work with the Syrian government to bring back to Syria as many refugees that agree to return as possible.

Meanwhile the Lebanese Army Intelligence arrested “Ahmed Mohammed Amoun”, a Syrian national. “Amoun” is linked to the ISIS commanders: “Abu al-Ola Alansari” and “Mohammed Safiah”. Amoun had been transfering money and ISIS militants between the town of Arsal and Jurod Arsal and Beirut.

On Friday, the Lebanese Army also targeted with artillery ISIS positions in Jurod Baalbak in Jurod Arsal in eastern Lebanon.

    It is surprising that people cannot see the stupidity in Syria of the Russian Military, Syrian Military and its allies which includes Hezbollah.

    The Lebanese Military cannot be trusted as they are part of the unlawful “Terror Axis” in Syria (more below).

    From the early days of the so called Syrian conflict circa 2011, the Lebanon Military and Lebanese arms traffickers were openly and unlawfully trafficking Weaponry, Terrorists and Logistics into Syria and helped make Homs City and Homs Province a “Terror Axis” stronghold.

    The unlawful Terrorist trafficking route from Lebanon into Syria was featured many times on BBC TV News along with unlawful and illegal entry into Syria by BBC journalists, filming crews and others.

    After 70,000++ sorties by the US, UK, France, NATO, Turks, Arabs, etc., with precision guided missiles, ISIS are still in place, trained, armed and logistics supplied by the “Terror Axis”

    The “Terror Axis” is led by the USA, UK, France, NATO, Turkey, Saudi, Qatar, etc, who are unlawful facilitators of Terrorism in Syria and other countries by unlawfully financing, arming and training terrorists as well as unlawful oil and weapons trafficking and unlawful trading with terrorists.

    The real goal of the “Terror Axis” is to cause regime change in Syria by ousting Mr Assad who had rejected the proposed Saudi Qatar oil and gas pipeline through Syria into Turkey and onward to the EU.

    Regime change is unlawful under International Law and there are no exceptions.

      The reason why Hezb is super strong now and can manage what he wants with libanese Gvnt. Reason why to that u-s and Israël feared Hezb and try to weakned it with sponsor’s money. Brits,MI6 and satanic queen R possible danger near Jordanian Border, but SAA reinforced his positions in Darra. True that conterbanda was a problem but globals positions look better and allies control sites now..Astana was a major political victory, look at moderate beheaders killing themself….

        The overall position on the Lebanon border only looks good because Hezbollah did good work guarding the border.

        Saudi and Qatar have already spent US$80 Billion in Mosques, Islamic schools all over the world and US$20+++ Billion on the “Terror Axis”, training millions of Jihadists, Wahhabi and Salafis who are waiting to enter Syria.

        Letting Snakes, the “Terror Axis” Lebanese Military guard the border will lead to more Supplies, Weapons and Terrorists to be allowed into Syria.

        Think about what happened in December 2016, Terrorists from Mosul, Iraq entered into Syria, drove 200+++ Kms and took over Palmyra v2, many of these Terrorists are still embedded all over Palmyra and Homs Province.

          The Lebanese Army is controlled by the Christian majority government from everything that I have read . While you may be right , there may have been arms smuggling back in 2012 that they turned a blind eye to , I believe that has changed .
          Reason being these Christians would be the first to be eradicated by those Wahhabi and Salafist jihadists . It just does not make any sense for them to support those dedicated to their destruction . So what may have been true five years ago , has changed .
          The Shia (Hezbollah) , and the Christians (Lebanese government) , seem to have worked out their differences , and now are working together against those waging war against Syria. They realize they will be next .
          If it were not so , Hezbollah would not be turning any territory over to them .

            Yes, Lebanese can make up and cooperate on “Tactical” moves however the the Middle East “Strategy” is set by Israel and led by the US, “Terror Axis”.

            The Lebanon Government has no choice but to do the bidding of the “Terror Axis”, this started after 2006 when Israel Bombed Lebanon almost into the stone age. (See Video below).

            In 2006, Israel caused many US$10’s of Billions of damage to Lebanon’s civilian infrastructure which is unlawful under the Geneva Convention and is a War Crime.

            In 2006, BBC TV News even showed the President of Lebanon broken down and crying tears begging for the Israel’s bombardment to be stopped, which was not stopped.

            Condoleeza Rice even spoke about this saying the New Middle East was being created, (See video at 0.45 below).

            Subsequently to stop Israel’s aggression, the Lebanese Government caved in and from approx 2009 until today, allows the Terror Axis Battleplan Force Insertion from Lebanon into Syria.

        “…this is happening in lebanon, not in syria. look at the map….”

        Few years ago, Hezbollah had to take over the Lebanon – Syria border crossings because the “Terror Axis” was unlawful trafficking Terrorists and Logistics into Syria.

        Giving back control to the Lebanese Military will again result in unlawful trafficking Terrorists and Logistics into Syria.

        “…israel can not say, hezbollah is the lord in lebanon. no reason for new war….”

        Nothing will change Israel’s position, Hezbollah is classified as its enemy, Israel follows its founding laws from over 3000 years ago which is to crush nations, take their land and enslave those people.
