Watch: IOF defeat Hizbullah in a ‘simulated war’

On September 21, Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz reported that Israel Occupation Force (IOF) claimed a ‘convincing victory’ over Lebanese Islamic resistance fighters in a massive drill conducted by its Northern Command last week (watch video below).

This corps exercise is the first of its kind in 20 years. It comes after the recent defeat of Israel’s proxy war in Syria and Lebanon. Thousands of Israeli military personnel from army, air force and navy took part in the 10-day long drill. Israel’s impressive Iron Dome aka Dumb Dome was also tested to counter Hizbullah rockets.

The drill was to show Israel’s military strength, built by the US, Germany and France, in order to scare Hizbullah and its Iranian and Syrian allies.

One must laud IOF’s self-denial as it has lost all three wars it fought against Hizbullah since late 1980s.

For years, senior officers and strategy experts have been agonizing over whether the IDF’s equipment and combat methods are suited to meet the new challenge posed by organizations like Hezbollah in Lebanon (and, to a lesser extent, Hamas in Gaza) now that the threat of facing the armies of some neighboring countries has declined. This year, a new question has been added: Given the clear advantage the Assad regime has established in the Syrian civil war, don’t these new regional circumstances require Israel to modify its way of thinking about potential future conflicts?,” wrote Amos Harel.

However, Amos Harel, was honest to admit that IOF might have defeated Hizbullah in a military drill on its own choice of terrain and command – but in a real war with Hizbullah, it might not have those advantages.

It’s much easier to declare victory in an exercise than in a war, whereas the direction in which things develop at the moment of truth is to a large extent dependent on the dialogue between the general staff and the political echelon,” said Harel.

Hizbullah is aware of the Israeli military’s preparations for the exercise and is expected to do its utmost to analyze Israel’s plans and assess its capabilities. Despite the soothing messages emerging from Israel, which stress that this is no more than a drill, one can assume that regional anxieties will rise over the coming 10 days,” added Harel.

Gen. (ret) Giora Eiland who served as national security adviser to former prime ministers Gen. Ariel Sharon and Gen. Ehud Barak told Israel Radio in December 2010: “Israel doesn’t know how to beat Hizbullah. Therefore a war waged only as Israel-versus-Hizbullah might yield better damage on Hizbullah, but Hizbullah would inflict far worse damage on the Israeli home front than it did in 2006.”

However, Netanyahu, his ministers and Generals have not learned lessons from their past military humiliations. They have not stopped threatening successive Lebanese governments with total devastation of Lebanon unless it disarm Hizbullah. However, every time IOF did that – Hizbullah came out more stronger in combating Israeli army and popular among Lebanese population.

Last week, in an interview with French daily Le Monde, Lebanese prime minister Sa’ad Hariri rebuked Netanyahu’s claim that Hizbullah controls Lebanon.

The Israelis say Hizbullah controls Lebanon, and that is not true. Hizbullah is present. It’s in the government and it has support in the country. But this doesn’t mean Hizbullah controls all of Lebanon,” he said.

Saudi-born Sa’ad Hariri has close family ties with Saudi ‘royals’. He recently visited Riyadh and Washington but hasn’t visited Iran since 2010.

Hizbullah fighters in Syria make Israel nervous

Israeli media has reported that hundreds of Hizbullah fighters backed by Syrian Army have taken positions within reach of Israel occupied oil-rich Golan Heights, which is making Zionist regime very nervous.

In July 2017, Netanyahu drew three redlines (David Makovsky, Politico, July 14) during cabinet meeting; 1) have to keep Iran and Hizbullah away from Israel’s Golan Heights border, 2) must prevent the establishment of an Iranian military presence in Syria as a whole, and 3) must block any attempt by Hizbullah to acquire precision weapons.

Since then Zionist regime churned the lies that Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, an ally of Hizbullah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah had allowed Hizbullah to build a military base in al-Qusayr, a Syrian town near Lebanese border – to stockpile weapons for the Lebanese military personnel and Hizbullah fighters who are fighting along Syrian army.

On September 7, Krishnadev Calamur whined at the Jew Atlantic that the recent defeat of anti-Assad mercenaries, “Israel finds itself in a precarious position as the Syrian war grinds on: The United States, its main global ally, has struck a deal with Russia, Syria’s main benefactor, on a cease-fire that is mostly holding; Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is now more in control of his country than at any point since the war began more than five years ago; and Iran, which Israel views as an existential threat, and Hezbollah, which it battled for years in Lebanon, have emerged even stronger than they were before the conflict began.”

The failure of Netanyahu’s six-year-old regime change in Syria has put him in panic.

On September 15, Amos Harel reported at Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz that Netanyahu had demanded a “80km (50 miles) buffer but Russian let Iranian forces and Hizbullah fighters approach with 2 km Israeli border along the Golan Heights.”

On September 8, Alastair Crooke, former British diplomat wrote: “Despite last-ditch efforts by Israel and its allies to salvage the regime change project in Syria, the looming defeat of the Western-backed jihadists marks a turning point in the modern Middle East.”

Hizbullah has successfully blocked the Zionist dream of Eretz Yisrael (greater Israel). Since the 2006 defeat Israeli Generals have come to the conclusion that Hizbullah cannot be defeated by conventional warfare. Israel which possesses several hundred nuclear bombs, is afraid to use them against Hizbullah as the radiation would wipe out more than half of Israeli population. That’s why Netanyahu wants Washington and Saudi Wahhabis to do Israel’s dirty work.

Hizbullah which is the product of Israeli invasion and occupation of South Lebanon in the 1980s, has inflicted military humiliations on Jewish army in Lebanon in 2000 and 2006 – and recently in Syria. Initially it began as a Shi’ite humanitarian group – but later it established an armed wing to fight Jewish occupation of Southern Lebanon. In 2005 Hizbullah entered country’s politics and currently lead the opposition group in the parliament. After its victory in the 2006 Israeli invasion, it has earned support from Lebanese Christians and Druze communities in addition to Sunni Hamas.

Lebanon appeared on Zionist Jewish hit list in 1919, when the World Zionist Congress delegation at the Paris Peace Conference said the Lebanese Litani River, Golan Heights and Jordan Valley (West Bank), were essential for the necessary economic foundation of the new state for Jews. It must have the control of Arab rivers and headwaters.

Hizbullah 3: Israel 0

Last month, Israel suffered its third military defeat at the hands of Lebanese Islamic Resistance Hizbullah. The earlier defeats were in 2006 and 2000.

On Monday, Reuters reported that 300 fighters belonging to Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, a splinter rebel group of the US-Israel created ISIS and about 3,000 Syrian refugees left Lebanon under the deal that followed attack by Hizbullah on insurgent position last month.

There are nearly one million Syrian refugees who were able to escape the US-Israel trained and funded barbarians during the last six years. Lebanon is home to over 300,000 Palestinian refugees since the 1980 who don’t have rights enjoyed by Lebanese Arab citizens. These refugees make almost 17% of country’s total population of six millions.

Vanessa Beeley, Associate Editor of the 21st Century Wire commented about Hizbullah achievements against ISIS as below:

“This is a momentous victory for the Resistance against the NATO and Gulf state terrorists. The black flags have been torn down in Arsal and the flags of Hizbullah, Lebanon and Syria are flying side by side as a symbol of the unity of anti-imperialist, anti-Zionist forces in the region. The heroes who gave their lives for this hard-won victory will always be remembered and honored by those whose lives and culture had been under threat from the malevolent forces of extremism and terrorism,” she said.

Hizbullah has both friends and enemies among country’s politician. Lebanon’s Christian president Gen (ret) Michel Naim Aoun considers Hizbullah as the Defender of Lebanon while country’s prime minister Saad Hariri fears Hizbullah and Syrian president Bashar al-Assad like the Israeli leaders.

On July 26, 2017, Reuters reported: “Standing beside Hariri in the White House Rose Garden, Trump said Hizbullah is a threat to Lebanon from within. He called the powerful Shi’ite Muslim group a “menace” to the Lebanese people and to the entire region. The lawmakers introduced legislation last week seeking to increase sanctions on Hizbullah by further restricting its ability to raise money and recruit and increasing pressure on banks that do business with it.”

Born in Saudi Arabia (he holds both KSA and Lebanese citizenships), Sa’ad Hariri stood still, as Judas Goat Trump unleashed derogatory rhetoric against the only group in Lebanon which is capable of providing social services to all of its citizens, and which heroically defended Lebanon during the Israeli invasions.
