VT: VT personnel, in two security conferences, one in Baghdad (January 2014) and Baghdad (December 2015) presented to regional governments the simple truth, that ISIS and al Qaeda, along with dozens of other fake terror groups are a manifestation of world organized crime.
They exist in the region sponsored by Israel and Saudi Arabia but primarily aided by the CIA, MI 6, RAW and Turkish military intelligence. Their primary goal is looting nations and fomenting human suffering.
This is important for several reasons, key among them that the ISIS organization in Lebanon, Islamic Wahhabist, is controlled by the Saudi Embassy, is aligned with Israel and is strongly backed by the current government in Beirut.
Going after ISIS is a first challenge to the Israeli nuclear attack and to the role France has offered as protector of Lebanon as a platform against Syria.
French policy in the region has many experts now looking at Macron’s actions as trying to save Netanyahu from prison and demonstrate that as with Trump, Macron himself is deeply compromised and a threat to France.

The Lebanese army has arrested a terrorist cell linked to ISIS, it said on Saturday. The cell was reportedly carrying out operations inside Lebanon. “The terrorist cell members were arrested in a series of security operations in the North and Bekaa regions on different dates, and it was found that they had received military training and collected weapons and war ammunition,” the army said in a statement.Lebanese soldiers and civilians gather near the site of an ISIS-claimed twin bombing in the area of Burj Al Barajneh in Beirut’s southern suburbs on November 13, 2015
The commander of the cell was identified as Khaled Al Talawy, the army said. ISIS has been damaged to the point that it does not hold any territory in Syria or Iraq any more. But its fighters still operate in some parts of Syria and Iraq, mostly in the vast uncontrolled border areas.
In 2015, Lebanese Shiite militant group Hezbollah declared war on ISIS after the extremists launched an offensive in northern Lebanon. The Shiite militia once fought an Al Qaeda-linked and other rebel groups along the border that connects Lebanon and Syria. Its leader Hassan Nasrallah vowed to eradicate ISIS’ presence in the country and its threat has been minimal for the most part.
The Lebanese army also fought ISIS but did not engage in joint operations with Hezbollah for fear of angering the international community. Washington classifies the Iran-backed Hezbollah as a terrorist group. The Lebanese Shiite group has had a strong presence in northern Lebanon since 2015 after it defeated Syrian Sunni rebels who had controlled local villages and towns.
Many rebels, alongside thousands of Sunni refugees fleeing violence and Hezbollah’s control over their towns, took shelter on the Lebanese side of the border strip.
Hezbollah has provided critical military support to President Bashar Al Assad during Syria’s six-year-long war. Its Lebanese critics oppose Hezbollah’s role in the Syrian war. North-east Lebanon was the scene of one of the worst spillovers of Syria’s war into Lebanon in 2014, when ISIS and Al Qaeda-linked militants attacked the town of Arsal.
