Nasrallah is a bad name to have in Lebanon, youngster finds

(Reuters)

BEIRUT - Nasrallah is a bad surname to have in Lebanon, as Israel tries to break the militant group Hezbollah.

Fourteen-year-old Mohammed Hassan Nasrallah found out the hard way when Israeli airborne commandos seized his father and four other men in eastern Lebanon, even though they are unrelated to Hassan Nasrallah, the firebrand head of the Shiite Muslim movement.

Mohammed was taken with his father Hassan Diab, 60, his brother Bilal, 28, the fiance of his sister Hassan al-Borgi, as well as neighbors Ahmad al-Awta, 60, and Mohammed Shakar, 50.

The Israeli soldiers boarded the men on the helicopters, then one of them turned to Mohammed and kicked him, he said.

They untied me, kicked me in the back and told me to go away, he said.

1. My guess is that they were trying to capture Hassan Nasrallah himself.
If that's the case, it tells us a lot about the accuracy of their claims to be assasinating "terrorist" civilians whenever they murder Palestinians based on their "intelligence."
