An ISIS commander whose wife was recently arrested by the Lebanese Army has called on jihadi militants to fight Hezbollah inside Lebanon, accusing the Lebanese government of being an accomplice to the powerful movement.Sharkas, a Circassian Syrian from the town of Qusayr where Hezbollah fought alongside the Syrian army in fierce battles against the rebels last year, said the Lebanese government was unfit to govern, "and in the worst case, a subordinate of Hezbollah".Al-Akhbar said it conducted the interview two months ago on the outskirts of the border town of Arsal, in east Lebanon.The militant appeared in a video last week in which he threatened to attack Lebanon and to start kidnapping women and children in retaliation for the arrest of his wife, Ola al-Oqaili, and two children by the Lebanese Army. Oqaili was apprehended in a Syrian refugee gathering in north Lebanon two weeks ago.
