BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 A.M.) – Hezbollah’s official media wing released footage on Saturday of their forces leading the 2013 battle for the strategic border-city of Al-Qusayr in southern Damascus.

The never before seen battle footage showed Hezbollah’s troops advancing in the Al-Qusayr region against the Free Syrian Army’s Al-Farouq Brigade in May of 2013.

The end result of the battle would see Hezbollah and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in full control of Al-Qusayr; this would mark the first time Hezbollah officially entered the Syrian conflict.

This battle took place in the Spring of 2013 and it ended on May 19th when Hezbollah expelled the last rebel fighters from the region.

Are you sure they are scared? Wanna see what Yanks are able to do to any army in only 6 hours?
go to Youtube and type “1991 Highway of Death”…
Be warned : VERY GRAPHIC and absolutely disgusting.
Note I’m not saying HB is inefficient, far from it, they did great job at chasing cockroaches in Syria.
BUT you seem not to have clues what would happen if HB faced any of the top notch hi-tech armies…
Believe me, you don’t know what is really in storage

Few can imagine what modern arms can do. Especially when all restraints are dropped.

It’s so funny. USA can destroy the whole Iraqi army for just a couple of days. However, ISIS grew up from 2012 until the autumn 2015 tremendously and USA + 60 more countries (as Turkey, France, Germany, Australia, Canada and so on) couldn’t stop them. That’s why please stop with your praising USA power and how it’s fighting terrorism…

Hey douchebag, is that all you got f*g-boy? Taking out a column from the air is easy dickface, especially when the Iraqi’s have been told they would not be attacked because a deal was in place.
Hezbollah is going to wipe you and that faggoty smile of yours off the map girly-man.
F**king gaylord.

That same “Hi-Tech” coalition screwed in the Yugoslav sky for three months in 1999 and failed to destroy the Yugoslav army (the losses of the Yugoslav army were in the scope of a statistical error, if the loss of human life could be called statistics). And when they were sufficiently upset because of their inability, they began to destroy civil infrastructure. So much for their efficiency.

Not shooting into the air like Jihadi in propaganda videos.

All sides are guilty of that I think and also of shooting without aiming and only exposing their hands.

Mind you is easy to criticise when we are only threatened by a PC image 🙂
