Veteran Commander Deals a Blow to the ‘Israeli’ Military

Veteran Commander Deals a Blow to the ‘Israeli’ Military

By Staff

An ‘Israeli’ commander who entered an alleged Hezbollah tunnel with his soldiers informed his colleagues about his decision to retire in wake of the punishment he was subjected to.

Commander of the college of command and Staff unexpectedly announced to his commanders Major Joel Strick and Major Itai Virov that he intends to quit his job this summer.

Brigadier General Rafi Milo’s decision followed the incident in which he passed through an alleged Hezbollah tunnel into Lebanon, without receiving approval to do this. After ‘Israeli’ newspaper Yedioth Ahrotnoth revealed the case, Milo was punished by Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi, who decided to delay his promotion.

Milo said: “To the extent that the punishment is too severe, I am retiring.”

The decision deals a severe blow to the Zionist military, forming a loss of the commander with the most operational experience assigned to a bold combatant, former commander of the Egoz unit, commander of the Golani patrol, 13th Golani commander, commander of the 13th squadron, and commander of the Galilee Division.

According to Yedioth Ahronoth, Milo is one of the rare commanders in the Zionist military, possessing much experience in guerilla warfare that describe the current wars carried out by the ‘Israeli’ occupation army.

Milo’s friends attempted to convince him to backtrack his decision, but their efforts were futile.

Additionally, Kochavi himself is expected to pressure him to stay in the military, the paper said, suggesting that the possibility of this option seems dismal.

Wherever Hezbollah Is, ‘Israel’ is On Alert

Wherever Hezbollah Is, ‘Israel’ is On Alert

Whether in Lebanon, Syria, or anywhere, the entire ‘Israeli’ occupation entity fears from the Lebanese resistance group, Hezbollah.

Under the title “The ‘Israel’-Hezbollah Confrontation amidst the Coronavirus Crisis,” Orna Mizrahi and Yoram Schweitzer wrote for the ‘Israeli’ Institute for National Security Studies [INSS] a piece that details the ‘Israeli’ military’s keenness to preserve the rules of engagement, citing Hezbollah’s growing military might most recently.

‘Israel’ is monitoring Hezbollah’s efforts to enhance its capabilities and build up its forces, the authors said, adding that the Zionist entity is trying to preserve the rules of the game, and avoid escalation into a large-scale conflict.

The authors used as an example the latest ‘Israeli’ attack on a Hezbollah vehicle along the Lebanon-Syria border on April 15. The attack only happened after the passengers abandoned it.

In response, Hezbollah elected to signal its capabilities and intentions by penetrating the ‘Israeli’-occupied Palestinian-Lebanese border at three points simultaneously on April 17.

Meanwhile, the authors said that any ‘Israeli’ activity in Lebanon should be undertaken only if the threat to ‘Israel’ increases significantly, especially from Hezbollah’s ‘precision-guided missiles’. In tandem, preparations at the ‘Israeli’ military’s front for a large-scale conflict should continue.

The analysis piece went on to explain Hezbollah’s growing might and influence: “Over the past month, together with its extensive efforts to deal with the coronavirus, Hezbollah has continued its efforts to consolidate its infrastructure in Syria, especially in the Golan Heights, in order to create another front against ‘Israel’, alongside Lebanon. This activity joins Hezbollah’s efforts to address the internal problems in Lebanon, which is beset by an economic, political, and healthcare crisis. Hezbollah is taking measures to deal with the coronavirus, but in a way designed to establish its status and legitimacy among the public as a defender of Lebanon.”

However, Hezbollah, the authors claim, has not abandoned its efforts to obtain advanced weaponry.

“To this end, it has been reported that the medical teams at the airport treating Lebanese residents returning from abroad, with Hezbollah being among the leaders in the mission to fly them back to Lebanon, are affiliated with the Islamic Health Organization, which belongs to Hezbollah,” the INSS added.

Meanwhile, according to the authors, Hezbollah’s efforts to build up its forces and consolidate its presence in the Golan Heights remain a source of concern for ‘Israel’.

They went on to consider Hezbollah’s insistence to build its own local infrastructure close to the border with the ‘Israeli’-occupied territories in the Golan Heights area is what underlay the grave warning published in Arabic on April 10 by the ‘Israeli’ occupation forces’ spokesman, following an alleged visit by the commander of the Syrian army 1st Corps, accompanied by a senior Hezbollah commander, to positions in the area used by Hezbollah.

In tandem, following all ‘Israeli’ breaches of Lebanon’s sovereignty, ‘Israel’ was also warned by the Lebanese government.

On April 19, Lebanese Minister of Foreign Affairs Nassif Hitti said that Lebanon was in a state of war with ‘Israel,’ which penetrates its airspace, and that a complaint about the Zionist actions would be registered at the UN Security Council. This statement followed a warning by Lebanese Prime Minister Hassan Diab in his meeting with the UNIFIL on April 8 that Lebanon would be hard-pressed to refrain from responding if ‘Israel’ continues its attacks in Syria using Lebanese airspace.

Meanwhile, Tel Aviv is clearly resolved to persevere in its strategy of the “campaign between wars” aimed at scaling back the ‘threats’ against it and establishing deterrence.

The ‘Israeli’ Air Force has recently been very active in the Lebanese airspace on spying missions and in firing at Syrian territory. Activity has also been seen along the Lebanese border, including completion of the so-called security fence. As per all laws and norms, Lebanon regards any entry by an ‘Israeli’ force into the disputed border areas as a border violation.

‘Israel’ is taking care to avoid major deviations from the rules of the game that have emerged in recent years, and in particular is refraining from attacks against Hezbollah targets in Lebanon.

The recent border incident emphasizes to ‘Israel’ that Hezbollah possesses the intelligence and operational capabilities necessary for penetrating ‘Israeli’-occupied territory and target communities and settlers of northern ‘Israel’ as well as Zionist military soldiers. Hezbollah is determined to show that the exposure of the tunnels under the border has not eliminated its ability to conduct land-based operations against the Zionist entity.

The authors further considered that ‘if Hezbollah crosses the threshold in its military buildup, especially in precision-guided missiles, this would constitute an extremely grave threat to ‘Israel’.’

They concluded warned of any possible escalation following an ‘Israeli’ attack, urging the ‘Israeli’ regime to prepare now for a possible large-scale conflict, and emphasizing that the ‘Israeli’ military buildup and prepare itself despite budget constraints caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Hezbollah Precision-guided Missiles Will Cause Mass Destruction in ’Israel’, Al-Manar Psychological Warfare Exacerbates Losses: Zionist Report


April 30, 2020

Israeli soldiers

The Zionist website, Netsif Net, published a report in which it cited warnings issued by an Israeli veteran officer of the danger posed by Hezbollah missiles, blaming the failure to address this peril on the enemy’s officials.

The report mentioned that it had one day earlier quoted a US veteran officer as warning of the harm expected to be inflicted on ‘Israel’ by Hezbollah missiles and describing them as a weapon of mass destruction.

The report added that the veteran Israeli officer, Zvika Haimovich, who served as an air defense commander, expressed his worries about the same threat but with a soft rhetoric, noting that he warned of a large number of Hezbollah precision-guided missiles.

Haimovich called on the Israelis to prepare themselves to encounter an unprecedented threat, according to the report which added that the number of Hezbollah missiles as confirmed by ‘Israel’ has reached 150 thousand.

The Israeli report blamed the army officers who hide all the dangers which threaten the entity during their service year and disclose them after they retire, wondering how they observe the professional integrity.

Netsif Net pointed out that Hezbollah TV Channel Al-Manar launches a psychological warfare against the Israelis based on the reports about Hezbollah augmenting military power, adding the Zionists themselves have started to recognize this threat.

New details about Israel’s withdrawal from Lebanon in 2000: newspaper

By News Desk -2020-04-29

BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 A.M.) – An Israel-based newspaper revealed on Tuesday new details about the Israeli withdrawal from southern Lebanon in 2000.

According to Haaretz, despite the lapse of twenty years since the Israeli withdrawal from southern Lebanon, they have learned the real reasons behind this withdrawal.

The newspaper reported that twenty years after the Israeli unilateral withdrawal from Lebanon, there  was still a deep wound in the hearts of the Israelis.

The publication emphasized that among the reasons that prompted Israel to leave Lebanon was the difficulty of finding a safe area in southern Lebanon for their military, along with carrying out useless operations along the border.

“But the truth is that our operations against Hezbollah weren’t of much use. We didn’t gain a thing except for feeling a little better. It reminded me of the body counts of Vietcong fighters by the Americans in the ‘search and destroy’ missions in Vietnam. Those missions were good for IDF morale, but when there’s no final whistle ending the game, they don’t change much,” an officer told Haaretz.

Furthermore, they said there was a lack of confidence in any Israeli operations or missions in southern Lebanon, as the Israel-backed Southern Lebanese Army (SLA) was unable to hold their ground with IDF support.

It is noteworthy that the Israeli Defense Forces decided to withdraw unilaterally from southern Lebanon on May 25th, 2000, after direct orders from the then Prime Minister, Ehud Barak.

Every year on May 25th, Lebanon celebrates this day as the end of the Israeli occupation, which had lasted from 1982-2000.

Nearly five years later, the Syrian Arab Army would end their presence in Lebanon, concluding the long period of time in which the small Levantine country had foreign forces inside its territory.

حماقات الرسائل… وثغرات الحدود

إيهاب زكي

يصدف أننا في شهر شعبان، وفي شهر شعبان من العام 652هـ، أرسل فارس الدين أقطاي رسالة للسلطان عز الدين أيبك، بأنّ عروسه أميرة أيوبية يجب أن تنام في القلعة (مقرّ الحكم في دولة المماليك)، وقد فهم أيبك مضمون الرسالة، بأنّ أقطاي بزواجه من أميرةٍ أيوبيةٍ يعتقد أنّه أصبح أحق بالسلطنة، فنصب له فخاً ثم دعاه إلى القلعة، فانقضّ عليه أمراء أيبك وقتلوه، ثم أمسك أيبك برأس أقطاي وألقاه إلى الجند الذين أتوا للسؤال عن قائدهم ففرّوا جميعاً إلى الشام. وهذا يعني أنّ من يرسل الرسائل المبطنة أو المشفرة، عليه أن يكون حصيفاً بالقدر الكافي ليستقبل الردّ الذي يحب، لا أن يكون أحمقَ أو مغروراً حيث تنتظره المهالك. وهذه الواقعة التاريخية تصلح لإسقاطها على الرسالة التي أرسلتها “إسرائيل” لحزب الله، عبر قصفها سيارة كان يستقلها عناصر حزبية، ولكن رغم ألف نقطة مراقبة مخفية على الحدود ألقى الحزب برأس “إسرائيل” لجنودها من ثلاث ثغرات في السلك الشائك، رغم أنّ الحزب حتى كتابة هذه السطور لم يتبنَّ رسمياً هذا الاختراق.

تحوّل حزب الله من خطرٍ على شمال الأرض المحتلة إلى خطرٍ على أمن “إسرائيل”، ثم إلى خطرٍ استراتيجي على مصالحها، ثم إلى خطرٍ وجودي يهدّد بقاءها. وهي في هذه الحالة كالذي يرتطم بجدارٍ يفتقد للمناطق الرخوة. فتجنّب الحرب يعني أن يراكم الحزب قوةً وقدرة، وافتعالها يعني أنّها القاصمة، و”البروباغندا” التي تسمّيها سياسة “معركة بين الحروب” أثبتت فشلها في تحقيق أيٍّ من الأهداف المرجوّة ميدانياً وسياسياً، لذلك فإنّ السؤال المصيري الذي على صُنّاع القرار في كيان العدو مسارعة الزمن للإجابة عليه هو: “ماذا بعد؟”.

وحتى هذه اللحظة لا إجابات أو حتى مسارات ولو أفقياً بجانب الجدار الصلد، بل مراوحة في المكان، مكان “معركة بين الحروب” مع إنهاك بيِّن، حيث المرة الأولى التي يتعمّد العدو فيها عدم سفك الدم. وهذا لا يعني سوى أنّه منهك عسكرياً واستخبارياً، فعسكرياً هو لا يريد الوقوف مطوّلاً على “إجر ونص”، فضلاً عن تطوّر الوقوف إلى حرب، أمّا استخبارياً فيبدو أنّه يفتقر للمعلومات الدقيقة حول طبيعة وحجم الكادر البشري كما حول النُظم لوجستياً وأمنياً التي يواجه من خلالها حزب الله جائحة كورونا في لبنان، فأراد أن يستنتج جهوزية الحزب عبر هذا الاستهداف المحدّد والمحدود.

قال السيد نصر الله في أحد خطاباته السابقة “إنّ وجودنا في سورية لا يؤثر إطلاقاً في جهوزيتنا على الجبهة الجنوبية”، ومن هنا يجب أن يستنتج العدو أنّه تحت المجهر على الدوام لحظةً بلحظة، وطالما أنّ عدواناً بحجم الحرب على سورية لم يجعل الحزب يغفل لحظةً عن وجوده وتحركاته، فليس من المنطق أن يعلق آمالاً عريضة على جائحة كورونا، ولكن يبدو أنّ افتقاد الخيارات يجعل من مجرد الإعلان عن الوجود خياراً مثالياً، وإلّا فإنّ هذه العملية تفتقر للشجاعة والعزم، وتنمّ عن أيادٍ مرتعشة، وهذا بعكس التصميم الذي يتميّز به حزب الله في تنفيذ وعوده ووعيده.

كما أنّ الحزب الذي يخوض حرباً أمنية قاسية على مدار الساعة مع العدو، يمتاز بالتكتم الشديد، وهو التكتم الذي ينمّ عن أولوية الإنجاز لا غبار التباهي؛ بعكس العدو الذي يبحث عن الاستعراض، حيث يشكل المربّع الأخير لإظهار قدراته، حتى أنّ ما يسمّيها سياسة “الغموض البناء” لم تعد قادرة على بناء ما تثلم من قدراته، لذلك يتخلى عنها لصالح “الانفضاح الهدّام”، حيث انهدام الهيبة التي راكمها على مدار عقود، ويحاول من خلال مراكمة الفضائح أن يصنع ميزان ردعٍ جديداً، وهي من علامات التكلّس التي لا نهاية لها سوى الكسر.

إنّ أهمّ رأسٍ “إسرائيلي” قطعه إحداث الثغرات هو أمن الجدران، فمَن أحدثَ الثغرات طعن نظرية أمن الجدران في مقتل، فلم يعد الكيان في مأمنٍ مهما تسوَّر، وإنّ أمنه المؤقت هو فقط لمجرد أنّ قرار الحرب ليس في وارد الحزب حالياً لأسبابٍ لا تحصى. وهنا على سبيل الاستشهاد فقد لفتتني ملامح الجندي الإيراني، الذي كان على متن أحد الزوارق التي اقتربت من القطعة الحربية الأميركية في الخليج، فلم تكن مجرد ملامحٍ لجندي يمارس مهامه بحزمٍ عسكري، بل كانت ملامح مليئةً بالتحفز والغضب والمقت، وأنّ العائق الوحيد أمامها عن التهام هذه القطعة الحربية حتى بالأسنان هو القرار السياسي حصراً.

وهذه الملامح ذاتها ترتسم حتماً على وجوه مقاتلي حزب الله على الحدود الجنوبية، فهؤلاء المقاتلون لا ينظرون إلى الصراع مع “إسرائيل” باعتباره صراعاً حدودياً، أو من منطلق عدو اليوم صديق الغد، بل صراعاً وجودياً، وأنّ عدو الأمس واليوم هو عدو الأبد. ويقيناً أنّ جنود العدو رأوا نزراً يسيراً من هذه الملامح على مدار سِنيِّ الصراع. وفي النهاية وعلى سبيل الشماتة، فإنّ الإعلام العبري كما النفطي سيفتقد لحفلات اكتشاف “جيش المكتشفين” أنفاق لحزب الله، حيث يبدو أنّ الطريق من فوق الأرض أكثر يُسراً وأقلّ تكلفة وأسرع زمناً.

A Yellow Card Surprises Tel Aviv

A Yellow Card Surprises Tel Aviv

Jihad Haidar

“Israel” sent a fiery message by targeting a car on Syrian territory that was carrying Hezbollah members. The attack didn’t cause any casualties. It was followed by three “silent” security incidents targeting the border fence with occupied Palestine. The occupation army described the incidents as “very dangerous”. What messages was the enemy trying to send, and how did it assess the response along the border fence?

The recent “Israeli” aggression was an extension of its broader policy towards Syria. It is also clear that it falls within the framework of the “battle between the wars”, which has carried on for more than seven years. However, the enemy’s strategy has gone through several stages. Each of these was based on gambits and estimates related to the prevailing conditions and centered on objectives set by the enemy’s leadership in line with the perceived nature and level of threat.

The aggression also carried another message: amidst the spread of the coronavirus in “Israel”, Tel Aviv would continue its aggressive strategy against the parties of the resistance axis in general, and Hezbollah in particular. As such, it wanted to say that any repercussions from the health and economic crisis would not deter “Israel” from confronting what it sees as a threat to its regional interests.

The enemy apparently wanted to suggest that it was prepared to venture into targeting Hezbollah members as well. It deliberately inflated the message in a bid to add more credibility to it, hoping to raise Hezbollah’s anxiety levels and change the existing equation.

Why did the enemy bet again on this particular stage?

The enemy’s calculations regarding Syria date back to the beginning of 2013, and the assumption that neither Damascus nor its allies in the axis of the resistance are willing to open a second front while faced with the Takfiri threat. This premise constituted the main pillar upon which the aggression was founded and continued until the current stage in which a set of factors and considerations overlapped.

Before the spread of the coronavirus, the enemy was wagering on the notion that the strategy of the axis of resistance was not to respond to these strikes as the strategy was based on a specific order of priorities at this stage. It was also because of specific estimates regarding the repercussions of this course that may result from exchanging fiery messages. The same concept was present among the enemy’s leadership, forcing it to abide by restrictions in order to avoid a scenario leading to a military confrontation that it does not want, at least at this stage.

After the spread of the virus, this approach strengthened within political and security decision-making institution. They seem to understand that Hezbollah has become more eager to avoid a military confrontation in light of Lebanon’s economic and health challenges. This may prompt them to broaden the level of targeting, in the hope that the worsening economic and health situation, locally and regionally, curbs Hezbollah’s influence and pushes it to accept the formula the enemy is aiming to impose.

Nevertheless, it appears that the enemy has also reached a critical conclusion – admitting that all operational, regional, and economic bets have not succeeded in curbing the upward trajectory of the axis of resistance and that of Hezbollah in particular. This prompted “Israel” to try to advance its operational options or to pave the way for such an advancement.

However, it seemed clear that the enemy was keen to avoid human casualties. This is due to its realization that any foolishness in this area will lead to an inevitable response by Hezbollah. In order to avoid this scenario, it was keen not to inflict casualties.

This is what Ron Ben-Yishai, Yedioth Ahronot’s security affairs commentator, explicitly pointed out.

“It was clear to the decision-makers in ‘Israel’ that the liquidation of a Hezbollah operative and official would cause a major escalation. It was clear that Hezbollah would respond. And this currently goes against ‘Israel’s’ interests,” Ben-Yishai said.

The same concept applies to the attack since it was carried out on Syrian soil; based on the equation that developed during the past years in which the Lebanese scene was protected with equations that differ from the regional scene. Otherwise, the enemy could have waited for the car to cross onto Lebanese territory and target it without spilling blood. Thus, the message would be more informative and more severe. It would show more determination from the enemy leadership.

Instead, its eagerness to deliver the message on Syrian soil reflected its concerns about a Hezbollah response. But it seems that the outcome surprised the “Israeli” decision-making establishment.  In the absence of martyrs, “Israel” should have been safe from any response. However, the fence incident muddled its calculations, opening possibilities with more than one scenario that is certain to boost “Israeli” anxiety levels.

The border fence infiltration messages

Hezbollah is yet to issue any statements regarding the incident at the border with occupied Palestine. However, several messages from the incident can be noted.

The enemy was not reluctant to link the two events due to their succession, and the fact that the operations of cutting the fence took place along more than one point with creative tactics that revealed a level of professionalism and creativity. The sensors were unable to detect the men who had outmaneuvered all defensive and control measures. This was acknowledged by ‘Israeli’ television Kan, which pointed out that “the entire border line is filled with a lot of control and defense measures, and the fact that these cells reached the fence and cut openings indicate high professionalism in the implementation, and perhaps in the information they gathered in preparation for cutting these openings.”

The enemy saw in the series of breaches of the fence an embodiment of the ability to infiltrate the borders, if necessary. This is further highlighted by the ‘‘Israel’ Defense’ website, which pointed out that this is one of the most “technological borders” for “Israel”. It gives the resistance – according to Tel Aviv’s political and security decision-making institutions – more cards to counter any aggressive options that require this level of response.

The enemy understood from the border incident that this level of aggressive messages in Syria would be matched by appropriate responses. It can be said that most of the commentators and experts who dealt with the border fence incident recognized this equation and reflected its presence as it should be among the enemy’s leaders. Military commentator for Channel 13, Alon Ben-David, was one of those who drew attention to this.

“Whoever reached the fence and cut holes in three places is telling ‘Israel’ I know how to reach the border. You will not see me. And I will cut holes in the fence whenever I want,” Ben-David said. “The ‘Israeli’ army observation points did not see Hezbollah members approaching” the fence. Ben-David described this message as very cruel, and therefore, it is likely to be reflected “in the continued operation of the ‘Israeli’ army against Hezbollah, whether in Syria or in Lebanon.”

The political and security institutions’ characterization of the fence incident as nothing less than “very serious” is an expression of their understanding of the messages. These messages only impose more restrictions on any aggressive options being studied or being prepared for implementation.

According to “Israeli” commentators, the message from the border fence incident was resounding. The time, place, and tactics were significant. They indicate that the price the enemy entity will pay is far higher than what it anticipated in any confrontation or attempt to exploit what it imagines as a new opportunity that will allow it to impose equations by which it expands its aggression.

In simple terms, “Israel” realized that it was dealt a yellow card, which is directed specifically at the decision-makers in Tel Aviv, and it will be subject to further study and assessment.

Whatever the scenarios that follow, the fence incident has turned into a prominent junction in the context of the security war between Hezbollah and the “Israeli” entity which has multiple tracks and arenas and is most sophisticated in terms of methods and tactics. What happened in recent days was nothing but a demonstration of a small part of this. It was done in an accurate manner that will not lead to a military confrontation that the two parties do not want at the present stage, at least.

Al-Manar Reporter’s Border Coverage One Meter Away from Israeli Soldiers “Incredible”: Zionist Media (Video)

How Did The Enemy Interpret The Lebanese-Palestinian Border Fence Incident?

How Did The Enemy Interpret The Lebanese-Palestinian Border Fence Incident?

Translated by Staff, Source: Hebrew Media

“The message is clear. Hezbollah demonstrated an impressive operational ability by reaching the border at points that are not being observed by our monitoring centers.”
This is how a military analyst for “Israeli” Channel 13 characterized two particular incidents. Alon Ben-David was talking about the targeting of a Lebanese car on the Syrian border and the opening of three holes in the fence along Lebanon’s border with occupied Palestine.
“The hole was not only cut. It was rather cut between two columns. And this means that their message is ‘if I could get here, I could have gotten to Jephthah settlement, Metula, and Avivim, but I chose not to be there,’” Ben-David added. “This means that you, the ‘Israeli’ army, are sending me a message. So, go ahead and receive this signal in return: every operation you carry out, you will receive a response from me.”
Regarding the bombing of a Lebanese car on the Syrian border, Ben-David indicated that “one missile from an “Israeli” drone was fired and hit the side of the car before it crossed the border.”
“As you can see, these people are serious. They understood the message and did not panic. They moved forward, took the bags from inside the car, and made sure to close the door. These are not people who panic,” he added.
In Ben-David’s opinion, Hezbollah members fully understood the situation. “They fully understood what was happening, but they did not panic. A minute and forty seconds after launching the first missile, a second missile was launched destroying the SUV. Hezbollah sent a message that any operation of this sort would be met with such a response.”
Bin-David pointed out that “the matter is worrying, and this is part of the broader complications in the north. If you look at the map, you see 1000 blind spots, and observation posts cannot see them. And on the other side there are bushes and areas that contain very dense forests.”

Hezbollah ’embarrassed’ IDF’s defense along Lebanese border: Israeli newspaper

By News Desk -2020-04-19

BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – The online publication, Walla News, reported on Sunday morning, that the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) were surprised last Friday night when they found the border fence with Lebanon cut in three different locations.

According to the publication, Hezbollah was behind the cutting of the border fence, which, in itself, would be a difficult thing to do, given the Israeli security in this area.

The newspaper claimed that Hezbollah fighters succeeded in ’embarrassing’ the defenses of the northern region’s command in the IDF, after they had penetrated three different points on the Lebanese-Israeli border, and had withdrawn into Lebanese territory without casualties.

The Walla report claims the operation confirms the gravity of the Israeli military security situation, especially as it is an area in which several battalions in the IDF alternate responsibility in it, and that the army’s response was so weak and too late, that it allowed the Hezbollah fighters to return safely.

The website reported that with this incident on the Lebanese-Israeli border, this matter requires a precise military stance in the northern region.

They would add that Hezbollah wanted to deliver an important military message to Israel, stating that it could easily penetrate the borders and enter the Israeli depth.

In the same context, Hezbollah’s Central War Media denied carrying out any operation on the Lebanese-Israeli border strip, stressing that everything that is circulated through some social media platforms and attributed to it in southern Lebanon is false.
