The Imminent Hizbullah-Nusra War

(Now-Lebanon) Hanin Ghaddar - The Syrian Salafist group Jabhat Al-Nusra declared in Jordan that it has taken a decision to fight Hizbullah militants, who have become "our Jihadists' main target" across Syria. This came after Hizbullah's secretary general Hassan Nasrallah declared that Hizbullah will stand by Syria. For the Syrian rebels, al-Nusra and others, this is a declaration of war against them. If the Syrian rebels want to prevail, they need to target Hizbullah. The Shiite community in Lebanon is not one single bloc that supports Hizbullah. The diversity among the Shiites is wider than it is among other sectarian communities. On the political level, this community has never been as divided over Hizbullah as it is today. The feeling that Hizbullah is dragging them to hell is translating into serious discussion and refutation inside the community.
