Syrian Rebels Kill 17 Hezbollah Fighters in Direct Hit (Video)

Syrian opposition forces again prove Hezbollah is not invincible. They posted a video showing a direct hit near Damascus on a multi-story Hezbollah building, which collapsed like dominoes.

Syrian opposition media have posted a video that shows a direct rebel strike on a Hezbollah building near Damascus, killing a large but unknown number of the terrorist organization’s fighters.

Hezbollah has been losing popularity in Lebanon following reports of hundreds of casualties since the terrorist group’s leader Hassan Nasrallah sent them to fight along soldiers loyal to Syrian President Bassar al-Assad.

Hezbollah initially claimed its fighters were in Syria to protect Shi’ite religious sites against attacks by Sunni Muslims.

In what appears to have been a separate clash in Damascus on Saturday, at least 15 Hezbollah fighters were killed, and a separate video showed dead soldiers with Hezbollah label patches on their uniforms.

Media  coverage of the destruction of Assad’s chemical weapons has neglected the ongoing civil war that could tear Syria into several warring regions.

Al Qaeda, which has become a major force in the war against the Assad regime, lost control of a major border crossing with Iraq on Saturday when Syrian Kurds captured it after a three-day battle.

In the south, rebels took over the town of Tafas after weeks of heavy  fighting that killed dozens of people, according to, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

    LOL. Israel still butthurt from getting their asses kicked in 2006 that you are posting unsubstantiated Al-Qaeda propaganda now? Well doesn't suprise me.. you are anointing their wounds in Haifa hospitals ahead of your own sick and needy.

    Hooman, tell me why does Hezbollah love using civilians as human shields?
    Does it come from Mohammad the pedofile who married a 9 year old girl?

    – Sabrina Tavernise, "Christians Fleeing Lebanon Denounce Hezbollah," the New York Times, July 28, 2006

    Hezbollah came to Ain Ebel to shoot its rockets," said Fayad Hanna Amar, a young Christian man, referring to his village. "They are shooting from between our houses." Mr. Amar said Hezbollah fighters in groups of two and three had come into Ain Ebel, less than a mile from Bint Jbail, where most of the fighting has occurred. They were using it as a base to shoot rockets, he said, and the Israelis fired back.

    Near the hospital, a mosque lay in ruins … A man approached and told me that he was a teacher at the Hariri school. I asked him why he thought the Israelis had hit a mosque, and he said, simply, "It was a Hezbollah mosque." … A younger man came up to me and, when we were out of earshot of others, said that Hezbollah had kept bombs in the basement of the mosque, but that two days earlier a truck had taken the cache away.

    Look how Hezbollah uses civilians as human shields.

    Hezbollah’s positioning of weapons in the heart of civilian areas in around 100 Lebanese towns and villages along the border.

    “In the villages there are three-story houses: on one floor there are rockets, then there is a family on the next floor, then a (military) headquarters then another family. The people that live there are human shields….

    “Every Shiite village has become such a compound. The great challenge will be to deal with all these compounds.”

    Hooman, do you believe your lies.
    It was Hezbollah who wanted the ceasefire first in 06, not Israel.
    Hezbollah ran out of weapons and figured their were not more civilians to be used as human fodder.

    Hizbullah officer: We would've given up
    8/1/07

    "The cease-fire acted as a life jacket for the organization [at the end of the Second Lebanon War]," a Hizbullah officer said in an interview aired by Channel 10 on Tuesday.

    In the interview, the unnamed officer said Hizbullah gunmen would have surrendered if the fighting last summer had continued for another 10 days.

    His statement sharply contrasted with those made by Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah on several occasions since the monthlong war.

    At the end of the war, Nasrallah said his organization had gained a "divine victory."

    The officer shown on Channel 10 said the organization's gunmen had been running low on food and water and facing rapidly diminishing arms supplies.

    The officer also said that many Hizbullah commanders were ordered to hide before the war started, and that the gunmen who remained were forced to fire Katyusha rockets from inside urban populations because of the IDF's efficiency in destroying launchers minutes after a launch had been detected.

    He said that when the gunmen relocated to cities and villages, they knew innocent civilians would be hurt as a consequence.

    The quick arrival of IAF jets at rocket-launch sites, sometimes only four to five minutes after a Katyusha was fired, "surprised" Hizbullah, the officer said.

  6. Sharon Barks says:

    Right on target. Somehow I’m not saddend

  7. 1200 lebanese killed 120 isrealis killed .billions in property damage good victory lolol couple more victories like that and hezbollas history

  8. Hooman Pennypacker says:

    Are you kidding me? Most of Israels population cowers in a bomb shelter "in shock" if a bomb goes off 10 miles away. How many Israelis are destined to migrate away in the next 10 years?? Ask Kelso since he's so great at being a google warrior

  9. Hooman Pennypacker says:

    LOL. good one Kelso dredging up dubious quotes aired on none other than Israeli TV.. no doubt you were on a mad 2am google charge to "sock it to me". Then you fall back on the usual pedophile dribe (oh no, I can spell it.. I must be one lol). You sound almost as desperate as Netanyahu is getting these days.. Every war college on the planet agrees Israel lost and even Israeli generals like the idiot Halutz at least admit it was a draw (=lose since you initiated the response with hi-tech US taxpayer equip and clumsily at that). Your motto is: Hard in training, easy at war?? lol. Nuff said
    edit: just saw your profile.. community college that explains it.. at least they taught you Internet Search Basics 101

  10. Ken Kelso says:

    I'v just been informed Hooman Pennypacker told Hezbollah he'll be a human shield for them in Lebanon when Hezbollah fires a missile behind a school.
