"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Hizbullah Shells Jihadists in Outskirts of Arsal- Naharnet

Hizbullah on Sunday bombed gatherings of jihadists in the outskirts of the northeastern border town of Arsal, Hizbullah's al-Manar TV said.
The Lebanese group fired artillery at “gatherings for the militants of al-Nusra Front on the heights of Qornet al-Qanzah in Arsal's outskirts,” al-Manar said.
Al-Nusra has recently renamed itself Fateh al-Sham Front after renouncing its status as al-Qaida's Syria franchise.
Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah announced in an interview aired Friday that the Lebanese army has the ability to oust the jihadist groups from Arsal's outskirts but lamented the lack of a “political decision,” alleging that “al-Nusra has allies in the Lebanese government.”
