A U.S. Christian group is accusing Hezbollah of using Christian villages in Lebanon to shield its military operations against Israel.
Christian Solidarity International said Wednesday in a news release that Hezbollah, a Shia Muslim group supported by Iran, is southern Lebanese Christian villages, such as Ain Ebel, Rmeish, Alma Alshaab and others are being used by Hezbollah terrorists for launching missile attacks.
"Hezbollah is repeating the same pattern that it practiced against Israel in 1996," says former South Lebanese Army commander, Col. Charbel Barkat. "Hezbollah is hiding among civilian populations and launching attacks behind human shields."
