The reliable Ali al-Amine

Let us spare a thought for this piece of information and the story that goes with it. Tens of thousands have been killed, wounded or disabled due to the Hezbollah intervention in Syria, Lebanese liberal writer Ali al-Amine said. Al-Amine is the torchbearer of the Al-Amine family, one of the most prominent Shiite families in Lebanon.

In his article, published in Al-Arab newspaper, Al-Amine establishes the link between the large number of victims and the defeat of Hezbollah, advisors of the Iranian regime, and of course militants belonging to the Syrian regime in south Aleppo.

Al-Assad followers lost control over Aleppo and a large number of fighters. The province is now under the control of the al-Nusra front. The author of this article believes that Russia did not provide the necessary air support in the last battle for Aleppo and that the Syrian regime did not fully abide by Moscow’s political plan for Syria.

In his latest remarks, the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Mohammed Ali al-Jafari, promised to escalate the situation, since the events in Yemen turned out to be in favour of the Arab coalition and in compliance with the UN resolution.

The priority for people in Lebanon, Iraq or Yemen is to defend their nation while others want to engage in sectarianism

While addressing the leaders of the Revolutionary Guards, al-Jafari threatened the Arab coalition, took on Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, and praised Hezbollah, describing it as “the best phenomenon in the Middle East”. Let the General dream the way he wants to, what al-Amine said in the article is more significant.

Sectarian groups

“The sectarian ideological groups, which constitute the arms of Iran in the Arab region, are realizing today that they are leading the Iranian battle in the region, with sectarian mobilization.

There is nothing more powerful and influential in this on-going war than the ideological mobilization. Resisting or fighting American slogans are just an attempt to cover up the moral scandals that justify the crimes committed by the Assad regime,” he wrote.

The priority for people in Lebanon, Iraq or Yemen is to defend their nation while others want to engage in sectarianism by supporting Soleimani, al-Jafari, Nasrallah, al-Baghdadi, al-Joulani, and their followers. This is what this is all about.
