Hezbollah slams civilian killings by militants in NW Syria

The Lebanese resistance movement, Hezbollah, has strongly denounced the latest massacre of civilians by foreign-backed militants in Syria's northwestern province of Idlib.

 

In a statement issued on Thursday, Hezbollah said that terrorist groups have been pursuing the deviant path of committing murder, shedding blood, degrading the human dignity and terrorizing innocent people.

 

The terrorist groups have sowed the seed of division, caused strife and fueled tensions across the Middle East region, the statement added.

 

The resistance group also said that Israeli regime has formed a vicious alliance with the militant groups that are currently fighting against the government of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria.

 

Israel is conspiring with and throwing its weight behind these militant groups in order to divide Muslims, the statement noted.

Hezbollah's condemnation came after terrorists from the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front and fellow Takfiri militants from the so-called Ahrar al-Sham group massacred dozens of civilians in the Qalb Lawzah village of Syria's Idlib Province on Wednesday. The village is mainly inhabited by the Druze religious minority.

Syrian official news agency SANA earlier reported that at least 30 people, including five members of a single family, three clerics and two women, were killed in the attack.

The report added that the “terrorists looted and burned dozens of homes” after they went on the shooting rampage in the troubled area.

Syrian Premier Wael al-Halaqi also stressed on Thursday that countries which back terrorism, particularly the US, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, are to blame for such massacres.

The ISIL, al-Nusra and several other Takfiri terrorist groups systematically target all communities in Syria, including Shia and Sunni Muslims, Christians and Kurds, killing or maiming them on top of committing other horrendous atrocities.

The Syrian army has in recent months inflicted heavy losses on the foreign-sponsored militants on several fronts.
