Earlier today the Syrian government accused Israel of an attack on an important airbase near the Syrian capital.

Reports differ on what kind of strike actually took place but Israel has made no comment. Pro-western media outlets such as Al Jazeera are saying it was possibly an explosion of an ammunition depot that caused the blaze.

The Lebanese news outlet Al Mayadeen claims the attack was carried out by an Israeli jet from Lebanon’s airspace targeting Hezbollah fighters and aiming to further destroy advanced weaponry.

Nasrallah Calls on Terrorists to Wake Up, Lay Down Arms

The secretary general of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement, Seyed Hasan Nasrallah, called on Daesh (ISIL) and other terrorist groups to lay down their arms, pleading for them to realize that they are serving American interests by fighting in the region.

“To Daesh, Nusra and the takfiri groups that are fighting, we tell you that you have been exploited over the last five years to destroy the ‘axis of resistance’ and the people of the region,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech marking the 10-year anniversary of the Lebanon-Israel war.

Admitting that it might be unusual to send a message to terrorists on the anniversary of the July war, Nasrallah called on the groups to take a step back and realize who they are fighting for.

Hezbollah Wages an Existential Battle in Syria

Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah has announced his intentions to reinforce positions within Syria, particularly in Aleppo. Al-Manar in its article, “S. Nasrallah: Hezbollah Will Reinforce Troops in Aleppo to Achieve Major Victory,” would report that:

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah confirmed on Friday that the party will send more troops to Syria’s Aleppo where a major battle goes on in order to defeat the takfiri-terrorist project backed by Saudi and the US.

Nasrallah would add that the US and its regional allies were preparing to flood Syria with thousands of additional terrorist proxies in a bid to seize Aleppo. He also pointed out how the so-called “ceasefire” was used by various US-Saudi backed terrorist groups to retrench and prepare for the next phase of fighting.

Hezbollah Condemns Lebanon’s Terrorist Blasts

The Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement denounced on Monday the terrorist blasts in eastern Lebanon, saying that some countries and entities in the Middle East and across the world are providing support for terrorists.

The condemnation by the movement came after at least six civilians were killed and 19 others injured when four terrorists detonated their explosives in a crowded area in al-Qaa village, a few kilometers from the border with Syria.
