The Syrian terrorists’ plot to abduct the son of the Lebanese Hezbollah Leader, Seyed Hassan Nasrallah, in Syria was thwarted, a Lebanese daily reported on Tuesday.
The Syrian terrorists who thought that Nasrallah’s son is among the Lebanese pilgrims visiting Syria kidnapped the entire delegation of the Lebanese pilgrims but then found out that they have been fooled and Nasrallah’s son is not among them, al-Diyar newspaper reported on Tuesday.
They wanted to force Nasrallah to apologize for his pro-Syrian positions by kidnapping his son, but they failed in their plots, the newspaper added.
Nasrallah has always voiced support for President Bashar Assad’s government, and has called for dialogue between the Syrian government and the opposition to end the crisis in the country.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country.
In October 2011, calm was eventually restored in the Arab state after President Assad started a reform initiative in the country, but Israel, the US and its Arab allies are seeking hard to bring the country into chaos through any possible means. Tel Aviv, Washington and some Arab capitals have been staging various plots in the hope of stirring unrests in Syria once again.
The US and its western and regional allies have long sought to topple Bashar al-Assad and his ruling system. Media reports said that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, a crime paid for by the Persian Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States.
