  1. I've come across a number of pix showing what appear to be Amal/Hizballah gunmen wearing ISF uniforms...

    ...I haven't put them up as news reports on the subject remain sketchy. In any case, if you look at the second picture in the following post you can see in the bottom left corner an Amal militia man dressed in ISF clothing.
