BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 P.M.) – The U.S. is attempting to establish an illegal entity east of the Euphrates River, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday.

The Russian Foreign Minister said that the U.S. attempting to create a group to fight the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies, including the Iranian-backed forces.

Lavrov did not specify what this entity is going to be comprised of, nor did he mention the basis of this information.

However, Lavrov’s comments come just days after his U.S. counterpart Mike Pompeo said that the Washington has two main goals in Syria: 1) defeat the Islamic State (ISIS) and 2) force the withdrawal of the Iranian forces and their allies.

The U.S. and Iranian forces have rarely come across one another in Syria, but Washington is concerned about Tehran’s continued presence inside the country, as it threatens Israel’s safety.

Hezbollah was created to defend Lebanon from the Zionist tyrannical terrorist entity which invaded Lebanon and committed mass genocides against the Lebanese civilian poplulation. Hezbollah never placed bombs in Western countries being only a defensive force created specifically to defend Lebanon and its ally Syria from the Zio/Nazis and their proxy terrorists including ISIS.

Well said Deo Cass. Hezbollah was formed in 1985 in response to the Nazi Israeli terrorist states invasion of Southern Lebanon in 1982. It was only formed to counter Israeli aggression and defend the Lebanese Shi’ite homeland.

Actually, IJO (Islamic Jihad Organisation) was renamed HELLbollah in 1985.
Imad Mugniyeh and Mustefa Badreddine (Hezb ‘military’ leaders started terrorist attacks as soon as 1982-1983, even killing 301 Blue Helmets in Beirut using two giant fuel-air loaded SVBIEDs.

Mugniyeh was killed by joint Mossad/CIA action in 2008.
Badreddine was assassinated in 2016 after Qassem Soleimani ordered Nasrallah to do so.

This weeks assignment for Daesh and his little hasbara handbook is to keep repeating that the ME nations are all crying ” death to america and israel “, while ignoring the reasons for doing so.
Just so you know.

Israel is creating its own situation by forming terrorists groups like hamas. Hesbula. Islamic jihad and etc. Instead of creating way to peaceful solutions but anyway its got the backing of U. S. A. Congress so nothing to worry for them but I think they time is nearing they must be forced to the peacefully way by showing them that peace is better than fighting and killing each others.

It’s just the richest of all terrorist organisations. Before 9-11, it even was the one which killed more civilians all around the world…

You mistake religion and the Jewish people. All religions are cooked to make their worshippers feel great and think other religions are shït.

Islam is far worst : Coran “just” says to kill anyone refusing to convert or pay the Jizya (racket+humiliation of non-Muslims). Then there is problem in that mentality.

Hamham : Hamas is OPENLY funded/armed by Iran+Qatar+Turkey!
You can even see videos of Qassem Soleimani himself talking about Iranian help to Hamas!
Hezbollocks and [Palestinian] Islamic jihad are 100% Iranian proxies.

HB annual budget is $1.1B, Hamas budget is $700M.
If you think the Jews will spend near $2B a year to have these looneys shooting many thousands of rockets and mortar shells against themselves, you’re seriously deluded!

US $3.8 billion aid to Israel annually plus many billions more in military donations and packages. It’s the equivalent of the US supplying new york and chicago gangsters with arms and weaponry, imagine the chaos that would cause. Now picture the ME.

Israel has ALWAYS been open to peace : ask Jordan or Egypt! Even with PLO, but PLO cheated Oslo-II, Arafat saw this as a Hudaibiyyah treaty 2.0=taqiyya (deception).

C’mon just read Hamas charter, Hezb manifesto or what Khamenei+IRGC say as a mantra! THIS IS NO SELF DEFENCE : they all shout “DEATH TO ISRAEL” and “KILL THE JEWS”

Yes to counter israeli terrorism. Israel are the terrorists and Hamas are the freedom fighters. Google jewish terrorism it’s all over the place before 1948 and is still prevalent everywhere today.Ashkenazi jews like yourself Daesh are the real terrorists.
