A Hezbollah higher-up named Hajj Hassan Hollo al-Laqqis, described by Naharnet as a “prominent figure in the resistance,” was assassinated overnight near his residence in Hadath in Beirut’s southern suburbs.

Well, he stopped resisting.

“Around 12 AM overnight Hajj Hassan Hollo al-Laqqis was assassinated near his house in Sainte Thérèse neighborhood in Hadath while he was on his way back from his work,” a statement issued by Hezbollah said on Wednesday.

Hezbollah is accusing Israel of carrying out the assassination. The statement revealed that Laqqis “was subjected several times and in several areas to failed assassination attempts.”

When you don’t succeed…

“Israel is automatically held the complete responsibility for this heinous crime,” the statement added.

That’s the precious part, right? Apparently, there’s this automatic fact finding feature that releases a pointed finger in the direction of Jerusalem as soon as one of the resisters suffers from acute lead poisoning.

Of course, now that Al Qaeda is in the picture, just across the street in Syria, they do their own blowing up things and assassinating – but the pointy finger has been there for such a long time, you can’t stop it now.

The Hezbollah press release described Laqqis as a “Jihaddist and a leader, who sacrificed his life.” Now, that’s a bit too generic, don’t you think?

From the Twittersphere, I gather that our shaheed boy has been mentioned as the organizer, or one of the organizers, of the 2012 bus bombing at the Burgas airport in Bulgaria, where five innocent Israeli tourists and their local driver were murdered by a Hezbollah team.

The Hezbollah operatives reportedly smuggled a detonator and remote control unit from Poland by diplomatic pouch. I can see why it would take a top level Hezbollah official to get that done with a Syrian or Lebanese diplomatic pouch.

The Voice of Lebanon radio reported that the unknown assailants targeted Laqqis in his residence parking lot. He was driving his beloved Jeep Cherokee when he ate the bullets.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer fellow.

  1. Suvituulia, with Mossad's track record… No, I don't blame them… If they did this, and "IF" is the operative word here…. IF they did this, I for one would THANK rather than blame them. Am Yisroel Chai!!!

  2. The media news of the assassination of terrorist al-Laqqis couldn’t be more indifferent to me. Whoever did the killing (likely to be his trigger-happy confederates) did a well done job.

  3. With Hezbollah's record, you can't blame anybody for pointing a gun at the guy's head, can you…Of course, when most of the bullets hit the car than the target, it looks more like the work of Hezbollah or maybe the Bloods/Crips than Mossad. How old is this trick anyways? Killing an internal rival while blaming the enemy of the organization? This way they get rid of the internal competition while getting a martyr at the same time. Standard practice among dictators, organized crime, and organized crime hiding behind religion. I am deeply saddened that he was alone in his car however.
