BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 A.M.) – Hezbollah is preparing its forces for a major confrontation with Israel in the near future, the Ynet news site reported on Saturday.

Citing military sources, the publication said Hezbollah has taken final steps to ensure that their forces are prepared for this confrontation with the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).

The newspaper reported that Hezbollah tried to shoot down an Israeli plane, and that its troops returned from Syria with sophisticated weaponry, pointing out that the Israeli northern command did not rule out the possibility of an attack against Israel that would divert attention from the ongoing Lebanese protests.

According to the newspaper, Hezbollah and its leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah were more daring to respond to the recent Israeli attacks. They said that Hezbollah has also used Russian Kornet missiles against Israel, something they hadn’t done since the 2006 War

Because of their 130-kilometer-long border with Lebanon, the Israeli army is reportedly  preparing for any attacks from Israel’s “first enemy in the Middle East,” represented by Hezbollah.

The newspaper considered that Hezbollah’s daring attacks is a boldness that the country has not seen in many years compared to international forces.

Israeli military commentator Yoav Zeitoun and journalist Pediot Aharonot pointed out that Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s recent speeches and statements indicate his organization’s intention to attack Israel.

The newspaper warned of the seriousness of the situation in the northern front, in particular, as the Hezbollah forces have returned from Syria more powerful and experienced, as well as brought modern weapons back with them.

Don’t blame Hezbollah. They and the Iranian Quds forces in Syria are continually being attacked without provocation on their part by Israeli jet fighters and drones. Not to mention the ongoing Israeli support and weapons supplies for various jihadi forces fighting the Syrian Government and SAA.

Ah? Bombing Israeli embassies, attacking Jews worldwide, e.g. the regional airliner in Panama or the tourist bus in Bulgaria, or the Jewish cultural center in Buenos Aires, and this happens for DECADES, are not provocations? Oh, yeah, this is just Iranian backed terrorism, but oh, yeah, Coran justifies these acts, against Jews and, actually, all the kuffar, just like the 1983 Beirut attacks that killed 301 US+French Blue-Helmet which came to stop further massacres like the Sabra + Chatila ones… Hadn’t Ossama became the rock-star of terrorism with 9-11, before WTC, Hezb used to do the most lethal terrorist attacks.… Read more »

I have some doubts about it. Ynet seems to forget many facts, thus Hezb may do some acts in the hope to regain better founding since Iran now prefers to pay for Hamas and Houthis. Any way, they had to fire a lot of personnel : thanks to US sanctions on Iran, they end with serious budget cuts, Iran now only gives $300M a year. If Israel wants to get rid from Hezb, Hamas and PIJ, it’s simple : won’t happen until they lose their sponsors. Just hit the sponsors’ economics in a way to make their sponsoring totally counter-productive… Read more »
