Saudis in the camps of Iran and Hezbollah

Mashari Al-Thaydi

My colleague Hassan Al-Mustafa wrote an eye-catching report, which was posted on the website of Al-Arabiya.net, about the involvement of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and the Lebanese Hezbollah in building, training and guiding Saudi Shiite terrorist groups.

Al-Mustafa, in his capacity as an eminent journalist and an expert on Shiite political Islam groups, has reviewed a lot of accurate internal information in the report.

This information is provided by the Western media, and by those who were deceived by Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the Lebanese terrorist organization Hezbollah.

Nasrallah came out in his last speech with depicting the itinerant Iranian general of terrorism Qassem Soleimani and his Iraqi student Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis as messengers of peace and builders of human civilization!

Al-Mustafa’s report mentions the recruitment methods that Hezbollah agents were using among the Saudi Shiite youth, and the verbal deception with which they lure in some naive people, such as the saying that training for jihad in Hezbollah’s camps in Lebanon is only for the purpose of preparing for the appearance of the awaited Mahdi!

Hezbollah’s camps were entertaining Saudi youth, in coordination with several personalities, most notably — as the report says — Ahmed Al-Mughassil, who was arrested by the Saudi authorities in August 2015, after being considered as the “mastermind of the Khobar bombings” of 1996.

Al-Mughassil, better known as “Abu Omran”, was the link between the majority of the youth who had received military training, and the coordinator with the “Revolutionary Guard” and the Lebanese “Hezbollah”, as he was the most prominent figure in the military wing of Hezbollah Al-Hejaz.

Abu Omran had been residing in the town of Al-Sayyida Zainab in Syria and recruiting young men under various pretexts.

Al-Mughassil also used to live in the southern suburbs of Beirut, specifically in Al-Salam neighborhood, and he frequented the Kingdom with false identities, especially during the Hajj season, with different passports, some of them Iranian.

Once — as Hassan Al-Mustafa tells us — the Kingdom provided accurate and documented information to the Iranian authorities, about the place of residence of Al-Mughassil, specifying the city, neighborhood, street and house.

However, Tehran denied his presence there, as the Iranian Revolutionary Guard was providing him with protection, while he was under the sponsorship of Hezbollah when he resided in Lebanon.

How did the Lebanese Hezbollah justify his malicious misdeeds within the Saudi society?

The Khomeinist party is justifying this under the slogans of “supporting the downtrodden” and training “revolutionary movements.”

I tried to condense this report, but it is indispensable to read it in its entirety. I wish my colleague Hassan Al-Mustafa would elaborate this subject further and convert it into a book or a complete research work.

And after all, I wish Hassan Nasrallah and his friend Gebran Bassil would find time and honesty to read this report of Al-Mustafa.
