Lassa Residents Prevent Security Forces from Removing Construction Violation


Residents in the town of Lassa prevented on Friday security forces from removing a construction violation belonging to Mohammed Daher al-Moqdad reported the National News Agency.

Residents blocked road, preventing the security forces from reaching the property, and they then fired gun shots in the air to thwart them from entering the town.

The security forces were forced to leave the town without removing the violation.

Property disputes erupted in Lassa a few weeks ago when Hizbullah members prevented a Maronite League team from surveying land owned by the Maronite Patriarchate in the predominantly Shiite town of Lassa in the Jbeil District.

They also came after members of the same party prevented an MTV crew from filming a report on the issue in the town.

When it becomes evident that the security forces are unable or unwilling to enforce laws one should not blame the people whose rights are not defended to get armed like the other factions. Lebanon does not exist anymore, we are on our way to other entities, call them cantons or any other name.

Ya diaanak ya lebnane.

"And fired gun shots in the air"

A cleansing is required to retreive Byblos to the Phoenicians.

Actually it is an occupied land by non lebanese.

Roumieh has plenty of room to accommodate the Lassa residents.

Strange how they lived like law abiding citizens for all these years, now because of the hizbala influence, they think they can steal land, build without permits, prevent the police from entering their town and carry weapons!

Amazing what influences hizbula has on people!

Humm, I wonder were are the brave M8 commentators their silence on this recurring story is always deafening, are they're just too busy defending a foreign regime that occupied all of Lebanon, like these armed terrorist thugs are occupying Lassa land, and killed more Lebanese than any other group including the enemy Israel itself. Or more likely they're a bunch of restarted kids with special needs who's only function is to cut and paste prepared text in the per-designated areas, they get one Resistance ka3ek in return..

The Hezz are acting just like Israel. Taking land and building. We need to liberate Lebanon from the Hezz.

if the army can not inforce laws it's a failure of the gov.this gov should fall . It's a shame .its ok for the syrian army to level villages of innocent people but it's not ok for the lebanese army to inforce laws against outlaws. ????? Where in the world do we see this happening? Who,s fault is it?

Hassan Nasrallah last Wednesday: "They made it seem like if it is an attempt by the Shia to invade the lands of the Christians."

Nope Hassan, Hezbollah has been strategically invading the lands of the Christians to link it's own military positions and make the lands of the Christians impossible to defend.

YOU make it seem like if it is an attempt by the Shia to invade the lands of the Christians. You said it yourself "East Beirut, Jbeil and Keserwan were Muslim areas and the Christians came as invaders." so how can we blame your Islamic Resistance in Lebanon for wanting to take them back.

The Shia in those areas on the other hand lived with their Christian neighbors in peace, protected each others, intermarried and shared the good and the bad. Until 2001 when your Islamic Resistance in Lebanon came to divide, invade, and conquer.

As the people that commented above me said, rightfully and truthfully, the noble chiite sect that were so humble in the past have grown to become dirty people, since they know they have a militia behind them to protect them take things that arent theirs by force, and that no one willl try to act against them, the only solution since the army and ISF are useless is to rearm ourselves to create a balance of power or else Lebanon will be a living hell for non chiite people, stop fooling us your militia is only good to brake the lebanese state and for no other purposes, and this is all in Israel's interests, its not the STL that willl divide us, it is your filth and false convictions, i hope the BAD part of the chiites and hezbollah stop that and dont push it to the limit, because trust me , some of you dont remmember we fought against more ferocious ennemies like syrians & palestinians that had nothing to lose ,and resisted, so couple of you unexperienced in guerrilla warfare rats...

When is the Government going to finally wake up and put an end to all this Bullshit that these So Called "DEFENDERS of Lebanon" have been dishing out. Enough is Enough, they Steal Electricity, Murder people, Close Downtown, Take Over the Streets, Forbid Govt. Institutions from entering certain areas, Steal Lands, Declare Wars, Protect all sorts of Criminals etc... and the list can go on. Where is the Sleepy Government Not doing something about Hizbustan's Crap.Those Thugs are the True Enemy of Lebanon, Not Israel, they are like a damn Cancer that's gone too far. God help dear Lebanon from these Hoodlums.

let me give you a solution people,

for cases like these we have the best and most "tested and proven" solution: Dictatorship (similar to the one in Syria currently).

thats what lebanese and arabs deserve and could live with in harmony, cause anything slightly more complicated or "advanced" we would have sectarian religious mess, as monkeys they deserve the most basic of all leaderships and that is the one mentioned above.

normally in this case there would be some skirmish entitled" operation clean-sweep" where troops move in arrest entire town, slap the little kids on their faces hang a few law brakers in mass public for all to see and fear and there you go no more crimes , no more bullcrap, and everyone goes on livin their daily lives without worry.

facts: " did you know Syria was rated as top ten safest countries in the world by "Lonely planet" prior to the recent events?

pretty cool huh, just what you deserve?

Nasrallah denied the Shia were building on Church land, and not they won't let it be surveyed and the building continues!! Nasrallah is a proven liar and a theif.

I fail to understand why the ISF didn't arrive in large numbers, well equipped and prepared=? Do they still believe that the filthy non-Islamic militia is only resisting Israel? Hezbollah has occupied Lebanon on behalf of IDF. Same devil.

i know this village lasa very well i have been raised there and this village is owned by only lebanese shiia and Maronite League is far down the mountains from lessa and mohammad daher al mokdad own a house in the middle of the village so why you guys to make it seem like shiaa is taking over the christian lands ? seriously grow up guys act like lebanese people that love all their religions stop bring stupid and childish . iam against the violations and he should be arrested for it for sure and he should been charge for breaken the law but you dont need to convict him for another crime that he is taking over christians land since he is building his house on his own land .

To Candian:
Obviously your are a shiite. But you are not from Lassa.
If you were really from Lassa you would have pointed out that it should be pronounced Lessa.
Secondly you should have stated that the Mekdad (not Mokdad) family is the worst thing that God created on this earth.
Finally if you were really from Lassa you would be tending your goats in the village and not using the internet.
