Terrormiliz Hisbollah hält erste Militärparade in Syrien ab

hisbollah_parade„On November 13, 2016, Hizbullah marked its annual Martyr Day by holding its first military parade in a Syrian town. The parade was held in Al-Qusayr, which Hizbullah took over in 2013 following a long and bloody battle with rebel forces, and which since then has become the main symbol of the organization’s involvement in the Syria war alongside the Assad regime. Reports on the parade and photos from it were posted on Hizbullah-affiliated websites and social media. According to the reports, several hundred fighters in uniform marched in the parade, and tanks, armored vehicles, machine guns and other weapons were displayed. The Lebanese website reported that the parade involved fighters from newly-formed Hizbullah brigades that are part of the Armored Division, as well as infantrymen from the organization’s intervention force who are fighting in Syria and form the spearhead of Hizbullah’s army. (…)

[Hizbullah] meant to convey that it is no longer waging a gang war but was a large army fighting across international borders, a partner of the Syrian regime not only in fighting but in making decisions, and a major player that must be taken into account in any solution to the Syrian crisis. It should also be noted that the Syrian opposition website Orient News reported, citing ‚exclusive sources,‘ that the parade included M113 tanks belonging to the Lebanese army, and that these tanks may have ended up in Hizbullah’s possession as part of a corrupt deal between Lebanese army commanders and Hizbullah. The sources added that, if these facts are true, they will cause Lebanon to lose its foreign military aid.“ (MEMRI special dispatch: „Hizbullah Military Parade In Syrian Town Of Al-Qusayr: Tanks, Cannon, And Machine Guns“)
