DIARY OF RESISTANCE OPERATIONS -- SEPTEMBER 1996
Islamic Resistance Performs Twenty Operations in September, 1996
The various resistance squadrons performed 26 operations, 20 among which were performed by the Islamic Resistance. Yet, the honorable confrontation the fighters had in Akmata Plain was the most significant, whereby the fighters clashed with the enemy, causing the death of two soldiers and the injury of eleven others.
Also, two Lahd militiamen suffered death and thirteen others were injured during "Operation Deir Syriane"; such an outcome has matched with what the Islamic-Resistance sources have declared.
Furthermore, this month the Lahd agents have been quite overwhelmed, whereby two Lahd militiamen gave themselves up to the Resistance - an act which is a normal outcome of the deteriorating situation the agents that are living upon the moral and military pressure the fighters are causing to the occupation forces and agents. On the other hand, three Islamic-Resistance fighters were martyred.
Still, the Islamic Resistance has added a new outcome to its unique accomplishments, gaining more credibility, whereby a Lahd militiaman, called Ali Abdullah, escaped his site and surrendered to the Resistance after it had again called all agents to renounce the already dying Lahd militia so that they could avoid getting killed by the Islamic-Resistance fighters, for the fighters would never be late to punish the enemy and agents.
In the same week, another Lahd militiaman, Ali Ghasham, escaped his site, surrendering to the Islamic Resistance and calling in a press statement the other militiamen to renounce the Lahd Militia and surrender to the Islamic Resistance.
Also, two former Lahd captives, who had been released by the Islamic Resistance, visited the formerly recruited agents (Abdullah and Ghasham), congratulating them for their daring decision to quit the Lahd Militia.
