Islamic Resistance Performs 323 Operations in May 2000, Triumphantly Routs Zionist Enemy from Lebanon

This May, the Islamic Resistance performed 323 operations against the occupation forces and Lahd agents, and "the Lebanese Brigades for Resisting the "Israeli" Occupation performed 10. Totally, the operations were 333.

4 "Israeli" soldiers and 5 Lahd militiamen were killed. 7 "Israeli" soldiers, 20 settlers, and 12 Lahd militiamen were wounded, the enemy acknowledged.
The Islamic-Resistance sources confirmed the same number of casualties but said that one more Lahd militiaman was killed and 4 more militiamen were wounded.
On the other hand, 14 Islamic-Resistance fighters were martyred, some of who were martyred during the liberation operations.

May was a very remarkable month for the Islamic Resistance. "The invincible" Zionist military was defeated and routed. Eighteen years of resistance, steadfastness, and martyrdom eventually allowed the Islamic Resistance to liberate the occupied town of the South and to bring the people of the newly liberated regions together with their fellows in the other Lebanese regions.
 
Islamic Resistance's Katyusha Rockets Strike Settlements, May 4, 2000

On May 4, 2000, the Islamic Resistance bombarded the most populated "Keryat Shemona Settlement" with sets of Katyusha rockets. That was retaliation for the Zionists enemy's aggressions against civilians in the liberated towns, particularly in al-Qatrani Town, where two female civilians were martyred.

According to Zionist military sources, the Katyusha rockets killed "a" soldier and wounded 20 settlers.
On May 5, 2000, the Zionist enemy again shelled the infrastructure, specifically the power transfer plants in Bsalim and al-Beddawi. Therefore, the Islamic Resistance launched several sets of Katyusha rockets against the settlements of "Keryat Shemona" and "Shelomi".

Several settlement blocks were demolished, and several others were really damaged and set afire. The Resistance was warning the enemy they had better cease their aggressions against Lebanon.
Also inflicting revenge on the enemy that assailed "Arab Salim School", the Islamic Resistance shelled Ramieh Site at the borders with occupied Palestine. Two Zionists at the site were wounded.

Operation al-Bayyada, May 18, 2000

On May 18, 2000, the Islamic Resistance attacked 30 Zionist-Lahd sites along the frontline in the occupied region. The Resistance then crowned this accomplishment by breaking into al-Bayyada Site of the Lahd Militia's "81st Battalion". The fighters broke into the site, killed the garrison, blasted the mounds, and posted the Islamic-Resistance standards all over the place.
Meanwhile, other groups of fighters shelled the other enemy sites and prevented them from backing up the site under fire. The garrisons of these sites suffered serious losses.

"2" Lahd militiamen were killed. "7" others and "2" "Israeli" soldiers were wounded, the occupation sources acknowledged.
Notably, "the Lebanese Brigades for Resisting the "Israeli" Occupation" attacked the sites of Shamaa and Teir Harfa in concurrence with the Islamic-Resistance attacks.

"Al-Manar TV" displayed a video tape on "Operation al-Bayyada". The fighters appeared breaking into the site, cleansing it, and demolishing it. Whereas the Lahd Militia's radio claimed the site garrison foiled the Resistance's attack, the video tape clearly showed garrison members running away in the valleys surrounding the site.

Consequently, the "Israeli" channel reported that tens of settlers, particularly in "Keryat Shemona Settlement", got their children out of school and rushed to shelters. They were too scared they might be stricken by Katyusha rockets, especially when they saw the Zionist military convoys withdrawing from South Lebanon.

Resistance Executes Agent Shahla, May 16, 2000

On May 16, 2000, an Islamic-Resistance group sneaked into Markaba Town at the heart of the occupied region. The fighters executed Lahd agent Aazar Mounif Shahla near the command of the Lahd Militia's "70th Battalion".
Shahla was born in Markaba in 1978. In 1996, He joined the Lahd Militia. He continued to "serve" at Mash'aroun Site until the militiamen were forced out of it.

Resistance Fighters Liberate Occupied Towns, May 21, 22, 23, 2000

Three days separated between occupation and liberation. So many developments took place in those 3 days. On May 21, 2000, the Zionists withdrew from the occupied towns, leaving the military sites to the Lahd Militia. Right then, the occupied towns were broken into and liberated.

In fact, it only took the Lahd Militia a few hours to collapse; the Islamic Resistance's continuous strikes against the remaining enemy sites, particularly against al-Bayyada Site, terrified the Lahd Militia. Humiliated, some ran away to occupied Palestine; whereas some others surrendered to the Resistance and civilians as well.

Heading the triumphant throngs were the Islamic-Resistance fighters, who cleared the roads and made way for the throngs. People now walked although the towns of at-Taybeh, Deir Syriane, al-Qantara, Alman al-Qasir, and Adchit al-Qasir. Around 200 people launched "the Return March" to al-Qantara. The Lahd agents had withdrawn from the surrounding sites, and the throngs exalted upon victory, throwing flowers and rice (a Lebanese tradition held in happy times) in the air and making traditional dances ("Dabkeh").

As civilians returned to their towns, the Islamic Resistance attacked an "Israeli" site on Mount ar-Rous in the occupied Shebaa Farms. The attack iterated the Resistance maintained the right to strike any enemy site anywhere on the Lebanese lands. Issuing a statement, the Islamic Resistance said, "This operation is part of the ongoing confrontation with the occupation until all parts of the Lebanese lands get liberated."

The enemy acknowledged the operation but claimed only "one" soldier was wounded.

As the Zionists shelled some of the returning civilians, the Islamic Resistance's heavy cannons violently struck Dhahr el-Jamal Site (at the Lebanese borders with occupied Palestine).
The Resistance also shelled the other sites, where Lahd militiamen were still positioned: the sites of Bir Kallab, Birket Djej, Haroun Hill, Marj Houla, al-Abbad, al-Jamoussa, Shala'boun, al-Aychieh, Haddatha, az-Zaffat, Braachit, Blat, Shreiqi, al-Mhaysbet, Dhour el-Kassara, in addition to ar-Rihan Barracks and the command of "the 70th Battalion" in al-Qabaa.

Next day, more towns were liberated: Mays el-Jabal, Rob Tleteen, Rchaf, Bani Hayan, Beit Yahoun, Mhaybeeb, Braachit, Tallousseh, Markaba, Houla, Odeisseh, and Kownine.

While the fighters and the overjoyed throngs were progressing, the occupation forces and Lahd agents, particularly the troops positioned at at-Taybeh Site, tried to obstruct the ongoing liberation. War boats, aircraft, and sites bombarded different crossing points, martyring 4 Islamic-Resistance fighters and 6 civilians. Over 30 other civilians were wounded, too.

Commanded by Lahd agent Yusuf Hashem, Lahd militiamen opened fire on civilians at Beit Yahoun Crossing Point. And as the throngs, including scholars of religion and Resistance officers, tried to progress again, the militiamen and helicopters opened fire. The same happened at the entrance of the towns of Odeisseh, Mays el-Jabal, and Rchaf.
The third day, the throngs in al-Khiyam Town broke into "al-Khiyam Concentration Camp", freeing all 144 captives. The militiamen guarding the place ran away on a motorcade of 40 armored and civil vehicles. The militiamen shot fire in the air to scare the throngs away.
The other towns in the districts of Marjeeyoun, Hasbaya, and Bint Jbeil were liberated as well.
