In Syrian civil war, AP journalists gain rare glimpse as Hezbollah fights for mountain range


It's not rare for Western journalists to be embedded with Assad's forces, like Patrick Cockburn and Robert Fisk of the Independent, or Jeremy Bowen of the BBC, and report their view that this is a civil war against  terrorists, rather than a revolution against tyranny. It is those Assad and Hezbollah have been bombing mercilessly who have trouble getting their story told in the world's media, because Assad murders and tortures journalists, as do the barbarians from ISIS he has encouraged to take over the liberated areas.
"Some 3,000 militants are in the Qalamoun region, almost equally split between the Nusra Front and the Islamic State group, a Hezbollah commander recently said in Beirut."
Those from Nusra, and all the other rebel groups that Assad and his tame journalists pretend don't exist, have been fighting ISIS in the Qalamoun. Hezbollah has no intention of fighting ISIS there.

' "The situation is better than perfect," one smiling Hezbollah fighter said, speaking along with others anonymously as part of the conditions Hezbollah set to allow AP journalists to make the trip.'
So they don't tell us that Hezbollah have already lost 7 commanders and another 40 troops in this operation before it has barely begun.
'Christian politician Karim Pakradouni told Hezbollah's Al-Manar television station Sunday that "the battle should be carried out no matter how much it costs because it will end terrorism in Lebanon." '
Hezbollah ally told Hezbollah's TV station.
"Only Hezbollah is responsible for the repercussions of its involvement in the war at the service of" Assad, said Hariri, who lives in self-imposed exile in Saudi Arabia and France.
There is a Special Tribunal for Lebanon at the moment investigating the murder of Hariri's father, Rafic Hariri, by Assad in 2005, so his exile might be seen as a little more than self-imposed.
