‘Israeli’ Navy Checks Efficiency of New of Anti-ship Missiles Amid Fears of Hezbollah Action

22 Sep 2022

By Staff, Agencies

As the ‘Israeli’ military is worried about a possible action by the Lebanese resistance group, Hezbollah, over the dispute on the Karish gas field, the ‘Israeli’ Navy double-checked the efficiency of its latest generation of anti-ship missiles last month.

The Gabriel V is the fifth generation of the anti-ship missile developed by the ‘Israeli’ Aerospace Industries and the War Ministry’s research and development division, known by the Hebrew acronym MAFAT.

The “complex” trial in August witnessed a Saar 6-class corvette INS Oz launching a missile at a mock ship.

The Gabriel V missiles are being deployed on the navy’s Saar 6-class corvettes, replacing the Gabriel IV, developed in the 1990s.

The ‘Israeli’ announcement came amid fears of Hezbollah’s threats regarding the Zionist regime’s gas installations at the Karish Field before the US-mediated talks over a maritime dispute reach a solution.

The maritime dispute escalated in early July after the Zionist regime moved vessels into the Karish Gas Field, which lies in in the disputed territorial waters between the ‘Israeli’-occupied Palestine and Lebanon.

The Lebanese resistance movement of Hezbollah does not rule out going to war with the ‘Israeli’ occupation regime over the its attempts at impinging on Lebanon’s natural resources.

Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah has warned earlier that the resistance’s attitude and behavior towards the ‘Israeli’ regime in the case depend on the results of ongoing indirect negotiations between Beirut and Tel Aviv over the disputed maritime area.

The Zionist regime launched two wars against Lebanon. In both cases, it was forced to retreat after suffering a humiliating defeat at the hands of Hezbollah.

Netanyahu ‘blows a fuse’ over Lapid’s Karish concessions to Hezbollah

Former Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu says Yair Lapid panicked and retreated following Sayyed Nasrallah’s threats, thus yielding to Lebanese demands.

    Former Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed Tuesday his political rival, Israeli PM Yair Lapid, saying that the latter retreated following Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s threats.

    In a video message posted on his Twitter account, Netanyahu said Sayyed Nasrallah threatened Lapid that Hezbollah will attack “Israel” in the event of operating the Karish field before signing an indirect gas agreement with Lebanon.

    The former Israeli Prime Minister considered that Lapid panicked and failed to operate Karish, noting that now, he [Lapid] wants to give Lebanon – without any Israeli supervision – a gas field worth billions of dollars that would help Hezbollah possess thousands of missiles and shells that will be target “Israel”.

    Addressing Israelis, Netanyahu said that on November 1, the Likud party, under his presidency, will replace Lapid’s weak and dangerous Israeli government with a stable right-wing government for the next four years; a government, according to Netanyahu, that will restore security and the dignity of “Israel”.

    “Israel” made concessions to avoid escalation in Karish: IOF official

    Earlier, the Israeli Maariv newspaper quoted Amos Yadlin, former IOF Military Intelligence Directorate as saying that “Israel has made concessions in favor of Lebanon to demarcate the border to ward off the danger of escalation.”

    “Israel is showing leniency in the demarcation of the maritime borders,” Yadlin said, threatening Lebanon that the IOF does not want it to turn into Gaza.

    He highlighted the prominent role played by Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah in this case, “which is indicative of the fact that he controls what is happening in Lebanon politically and militarily, which may push the Lebanese and the Israelis to a place that the two do not want,” as he put it.

    The former IOF official claimed that “Israel today has accepted the Lebanese line, and therefore, there is no place for Nasrallah’s demands concerning the Ras Al-Naqoura area.”

    Referring to the area adjacent to an area the IOF usurped from the Palestinians and consequently occupied, Yadlin insolently demanded “compensation for ceding the maritime economic zone in Ras Al-Naqoura and all the region to the south Qana field.”

    “We insist on these points,” he said, claiming that Sayyed Nasrallah “here has been trying to cause distortion.”

    Furthermore, Yadlin claimed that Karish is “purely Israeli” and that “we have to pump gas from there,” continuing to say, “The moment you concede to Nasrallah just once, you have to follow it with setting limits, because if the situation deteriorates toward an inevitable war, we know that we have done everything we can to prevent it.”

    This comes as Israeli media reported Monday that the signing between “Israel” and Lebanon of the agreement “on the maritime borders” is very close, stressing that what remains are “some technical details.”

    Similarly, Lebanese President Michel Aoun confirmed that negotiations related to the demarcation of the maritime border with “Israel” are in their final stages.

    Fearing escalation, IOF request clarification on Karish statement

    Last week, Israeli media said that “it was the Israeli army that requested that clarification be issued regarding [an Israeli statement regarding] the Karish field, in order not to provoke tensions against Hezbollah.”

    Israeli Channel 13 stated that “the fear of a confrontation with Hezbollah has increased in recent weeks regarding the Karish gas platform. Despite Israel’s announcement that the next stage regarding the activation of the platform will begin soon, it has indicated, exceptionally, that the talk is not about extracting gas from it.”

    Channel 13 political affairs correspondent, Moriah Wahlberg, pointed out that “this clarification was not made in vain, but is rather aimed primarily at the ears of Hezbollah, as they in Israel do not want to create, provoke, and increase tensions, especially since these tensions already exist on this issue.”

    Wahlberg pointed out that “there is a disagreement in the Israeli leadership regarding the text of this statement, which was issued by the Ministry of Energy,” stressing that “some parties believed that this clarification should not be given in the matter of natural gas extraction, but parties in the army requested that this clarification be issued in order to avoid tensions with Hezbollah.”

    It is noteworthy that a source familiar with the matter revealed to Al Mayadeen, on September 11, that the US envoy for the demarcation of the maritime border, Amos Hochstein, handed Lebanon the coordinates of the line of maritime buoys, explaining that these coordinates constitute the “last point that is being negotiated,” in preparation for sending his [Hochstein’s] “full offer” next week.

    Israeli Media: No one can get into Nasrallah’s head

    Israeli media points out that “in the security and military establishment they understand that no one can really know what the Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, thinks.”

    Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah

    Israeli media said on Sunday that in the security and military establishment they understand that no one can really know what Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah thinks.

    The media pointed out that “in the security and military establishment, they understand that no one can really get into Nasrallah’s head. The Israeli intelligence’s attempts to do so have failed and were disappointing.”

    The Israeli Kan channel stated that “amid tension against Hezbollah and weeks away from the start of the work to extract gas at the Karish platform, in addition to Nasrallah’s threats, IOF chief Aviv Kochavi issued a warning.”

    Kochavi claimed, “Rockets, rocket-propelled grenades, anti-armor missile sites, command, and control rooms are scattered in large areas of Lebanon,” according to the channel.

    Israeli media pointed out that “‘Israel’ is optimistic about the possibility of reaching an agreement with Lebanon” since the two parties understand that stopping the escalation comes in the best of Israeli and Lebanese interests.

    “Therefore, they have also been strengthening the alertness of the Israeli forces since July, when Nasrallah sent drones to the Karish rig, in addition to this evening’s message from the Chief of Staff to Nasrallah,” the media added.

    The escalation between the occupation and Lebanon has entered a new phase ever since the Israeli occupation government announced the start of drilling to extract gas from the Karish field, and since the entry of the Energean Power vessel last June.

    The escalation reached its peak with Sayyed Nasrallah’s threats that the extraction of gas by Israelis is prohibited without reaching a demarcation agreement that guarantees Lebanon’s getting its rights and wealth, which will contribute to improving its economic situation.

    Lebanese Resistance: Lebanon’s rights or escalation

    On August 19, the Secretary-General of Hezbollah rejected any link between the Lebanese border demarcation file and other files and noted that “If Lebanon does not obtain the rights demanded by the Lebanese state, we are heading toward an escalation whether or not the nuclear agreement is signed.”

    Last month, Nasrallah threatened the Israeli occupation over its attempts to forcibly extract gas from the contested region, warning, “If Lebanon does not obtain the rights demanded by the Lebanese state, we are heading toward an escalation whether or not the nuclear agreement is signed.” 

    He called on the Lebanese state “to benefit from the strength of the resistance and not to delay in obtaining Lebanon’s rights to gas in the Mediterranean.”

    On July 31, the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon military media published a video that displayed the coordinates of the Israeli occupation’s gas rigs off the coasts of occupied Palestine in a clear message to “Tel Aviv”.

    In July, Hezbollah launched three UAVs in the direction of the disputed area at the Karish field, on reconnaissance missions, stressing that “the marches accomplished the required mission and delivered the message.”

    Seven Israeli soldiers suffocate in a military tower while asleep

    Palestinian youths burned tires at the entrance of a military tower.

    After Palestinian youths set fire to tires at the entrance of a military tower in Beit Ummar, Al-Khalil, West Bank, 7 Israeli occupation forces suffocated inside the tower where they were sleeping.

    Local Palestinian news outlets reported that the “masked men set fire to a military tower of the occupation soldiers while they were sleeping inside it, at the entrance of the town of Beit Ummar, north of Al-Khalil.”

    Mohammed Ayyad Awad, an activist, noted that “the soldiers were asleep when the tires caught fire, which led to 7 of them suffocating,” adding that Israeli ambulances and an Israeli fire engine rushed to the scene.

    Awad went on to say: “Palestinian youths wrote national slogans on the wall of the tower, bearing the name of martyr Ibrahim Al-Nabulsi and the Fatah movement,” noting that “the main entrance to the town has been closed since last night after the military tower was hit with a Molotov cocktail.”

    In early August, Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades mourned its leader Ibrahim Al-Nabulsi and his companions, Islam Sabbouh and Hussein Taha, who were martyred in an armed confrontation with the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) that surrounded them in a house in the eastern neighborhood of the Old City of Nablus.

    In a statement, the brigades vowed that the response to this crime will have no limits, and will be as huge as its size, stressing that the occupation will bear the consequences of this aggression.

    Following Al-Nabulsi and his two companion’s martyrdom, the Palestinian Health Ministry announced that the death toll of Palestinians killed by the IOF in 2022 rose to 129, including at least 34 children.

    الكيان الإسرائيلي والإستحقاقات المحتومة

     أغسطس 26, 2022

    صحيفة الوطن السورية-

    تحسين الحلبي:

    نشرت مجلة «ايكونوميست» الأميركية في 22-آب الجاري معلومات تشير إلى التغيرات التي طرأت على التوازن الديموغرافي بين الفلسطينيين وبين اليهود في الكيان الإسرائيلي وبقية الأراضي الفلسطينية التي يقيم فيها الفلسطينيون في الضفة الغربية والقدس وقطاع غزة والأراضي المحتلة منذ عام 1948، فتبين أن عدد الفلسطينيين على امتداد وجودهم من قطاع غزة حتى الناقورة، يزيد قليلاً على مجمل عدد اليهود في الكيان وفي الأراضي المحتلة بعد عام 1967، فقد بلغ عدد السكان الإجمالي في إسرائيل وما يتبع لها من مستوطنات في الضفة الغربية تسعة ملايين ونصف المليون بما فيهم الفلسطينيون الموجودون داخل الأراضي المحتلة منذ عام 1948، ومنهم 21 بالمئة من هؤلاء الفلسطينيين داخل الكيان و74 بالمئة من اليهود و5 بالمئة من غير اليهود، وهذا يعني أن عددهم أقل من سبعة ملايين، على حين يصبح العدد الإجمالي للفلسطينيين الموجودين في داخل الكيان وفي الضفة الغربية وفي قطاع غزة والقدس أكثر من سبعة ملايين.

    وتشير المجلة إلى أن 13 بالمئة من هؤلاء الملايين السبعة اليهود هم من اليهود السلفيين الذين يمتنعون عن الخدمة بجيش الاحتلال بسبب الشريعة التوراتية التي تفرض عليهم العبادة فقط، وبهذه النسبة التي يزيد عددها على مليون من اليهود تقريبا سيعتمد خزان القوى البشرية العسكرية للكيان على ستة ملايين من اليهود، على حين يزيد خزان القوى البشرية الفلسطينية على سبعة ملايين تنتشر نسبة منهم في داخل مدن مختلطة السكان مثل عكا وحيفا واللد ويافا وجنوب فلسطين قرب بئر السبع.

    وإذا كان الشعب الفلسطيني في الضفة الغربية والقدس وفي قطاع غزة يشن حملات مقاومة بأشكال مسلحة وغير مسلحة ضد جيش الاحتلال، فإنهم يقومون بهذه المهمة باسم كل الشعب الفلسطيني سواء باسم الموجودين داخل فلسطين المحتلة أم خارجها، وفي ظل هذا الوضع سيعمل على توحيد ساحات وجبهات المقاومة داخل مساحة فلسطين كلها وسيكون لديه قوة بشرية تربك جيش الاحتلال والمستوطنين في كل مكان داخل فلسطين.

    وبسبب تناقص العدد الكافي والمطلوب للقوى البشرية المؤهلة للتجنيد في جيش الاحتلال النظامي، كان رئيس الحكومة نفتالي بينيت قد أعلن قبل سنة ونصف السنة أن جيشه سيقدم لمن يرغب من المستوطنين داخل الكيان وفي الضفة الغربية والقدس السلاح والذخائر لكي يحملها دوماً ويستخدمها من دون أوامر ضد كل أشكال المقاومة الفلسطينية، وجاءت هذه الدعوة غير المسبوقة في طريقة الإعلان عنها على لسان رئيس حكومة الكيان بهدف سد ثغرة تناقص عدد القوى البشرية في جيش الاحتلال النظامي، وهي تدل على حالة الضعف والتدهور التي بدأت تطرأ على قدرة جيش الاحتلال أمام صمود ومقاومة الشعب الفلسطيني في الداخل والعجز عن التغلب عليها.

    وتشير التقارير الغربية إلى أن قيادة جيش الاحتلال لن يكون بمقدورها تجنيد عدد يزيد على 300 ألف أو 400 ألف من الجنود النظاميين حتى باستخدام كل قوات الاحتياط، لأن الملايين الستة التي يجري تجنيد الشبان والشابات من بينها، لا يمكن أن يوفروا أكثر من هذا العدد من الجنود وستزداد صعوبة أي مجابهة عسكرية تحدث بين المقاومة الفلسطينية وجيش الاحتلال بسبب عدد الجبهات القتالية التي سيضطر جيش الاحتلال للانتشار فيها، في الوسط أمام الضفة الغربية وفي الجنوب أمام قطاع غزة وصواريخ القطاع وفي داخل الكيان أمام مليونين من الفلسطينيين المنتشرين من عكا إلى الجليل إلى وسط البلاد، أما في الشمال حيث توجد جبهة المقاومة اللبنانية وصواريخها وجبهة حدود الجولان المحتل، فسوف يحتاج جيش الاحتلال إلى أكثر من مئة وخمسين ألفاً إن لم يكن إلى مئتي ألف لحماية حدود الكيان الخارجية الممتدة من حدود الجولان المحتل حتى جنوب لبنان، ولذلك دأب جيش الاحتلال على الحرص الشديد بألا يفجر حرباً شاملة على جبهة الشمال برغم أنه يرى تزايداً في قدرات هذه الجبهة شهراً تلو آخر ويعجز عن منع تعاظمها وخاصة بعد انتصار الجيش العربي السوري وحلفائه على حرب الإرهاب الكونية التي شارك في شنها جيش الاحتلال إلى جانب مئة دولة ولم ينجح بتحقيق أهدافه فيها.

    ولذلك يعترف المحللون العسكريون والمتخصصون بالشؤون الإستراتيجية في تل أبيب أن الكيان الإسرائيلي يمر بأصعب وأفدح الأخطار بعد التحول الذي فرضته أطراف محور المقاومة في ميزان القوى الإقليمي في المنطقة برغم اتفاقات كامب ديفيد وما تبعها من اتفاقات أوسلو ووادي عربة التي لم تحمل أي عوامل قوة إضافية إلى الكيان لا في مواجهة الشعب الفلسطيني ومقاومته المستمرة على كل فلسطين، ولا في مواجهة جبهة المقاومة اللبنانية والسورية في الشمال.

    أمام هذا الوضع العسير جداً لن يكون بمقدور هذا الكيان الهروب من دفع الثمن.

    قائد جهادي كبير يروي عن استعدادات المقاومة للحرب: هدفنا تدمير جيش العدو وسينتشـلون الجثث من تحت ركام المدن

    (خاص الأخبار) إسرائيل تنتظر شتاء النار

    ابراهيم الأمين 

     لدى المقاومة قدرات غير موجودة حتى في ايران
     لن يجرؤ الأميركيون على القتال ضدنا لأن ذكرى الثمانينيات حاضرة في أذهانهم

    هو ليس آخر الأحياء من جيل المقاومين المؤسسين. بل واحد من قلّة لم يدر في خلدها، قبل أربعين عاماً، أن تعيش أكثر من أربعين يوماً. واحد من ثلّة تعرف لبنان القديم الخاضع والناس المقهورين بسبب الاستعمار وتوابعه. لكنه صار لاعباً في بناء لبنان آخر لم يكتمل قيامه بعد: لبنان القوة والعدالة والقادر على الانتقال بالمنطقة الى واقع جديد.

    هو واحد من جيل سمع الحكايات عن نضالات واجهت الاستعمار الفرنسي والتدخلات الخارجية. وعندما اجتاح العدو لبنان في حزيران عام 1982، لم يكن يشعر بالوحدة القاتلة، ولا بالغربة التي تكبّله وتجعله عاجزاً عن الفعل. فهو واحد ممن عاشوا لحظة خفقان راية الجهاد التي رفعها الإمام الخميني عندما أصدر فتواه بوجوب قتال إسرائيل ومواجهتها بكل ما يمكن.

    انقر على الصورة لتكبيرها

    في ذكرى أربعينية المقاومة، ليس هناك من هو قادر على جمع الصورة مثله. قائد جهادي. تعرّف على الحرب وفنون القتال، ولو أنه لم يشارك في الحرب الأهلية. وتأثّر، كأبناء جيله من سكان أحزمة البؤس، بخطب الإمام السيد موسى الصدر. وبعد انتصار الثورة الإسلامية في إيران، وجد نفسه مقبلاً على أمر آخر. فزاد انخراطه في العمل الجهادي ضمن حدود ضيقة. جمعته مع رفاقه المؤسسين، من الشهداء والأحياء، علاقات صداقة وأخوّة والصلاة في المسجد الذي كان الرابط الأوّل والأهم بينهم، والتعرف على واقع المقاومة الفلسطينية والأحزاب التي تقاتل في لبنان. حتى صار مع رفاقه مجموعة تعرف الكثير عما يجري، وتربطها علاقات وصلات مكّنتها في لحظة الاجتياح من تحويل نداء الإمام الخميني للقتال، الى فعل له إطار تنظيمي وليد. لكنه فعل لم يكن القائمون به يفتشون له عن عنوان أو اسم أو راية. وعندما تعرّضوا للمرة الأولى لسؤال عن هويّتهم، سادهم الإرباك، قبل أن يجيب القائد الجهادي نفسه سائله: «نحن الخمينيون»!
    على مر عقود أربعة، كان لهذا القائد دوره الميداني المباشر، منذ قتال اللحظة الأولى في خلدة. وهو واحد ممن رافقوا كل الذين تولّوا قيادة المقاومة. كان، ولا يزال، شريكاً أساسياً في قراءة الواقع وتحضير لوازم الحرب والاستعداد لفعل نوعي متى حانت لحظة الحرب الكبرى.
    في لقاء مع «الأخبار»، يروي القائد الجهادي عن رحلة المقاومة، وعن العمل الذي لم يتوقف منذ 14 آب 2006، ليس فقط في سياق بناء قوة قادرة على صدّ أي عدوان جديد وتدميره بالكامل، بل إلى أبعد من ذلك بكثير لتصل إلى القدرة على الهجوم وما بعده. وهي ورشة لم تترك أمراً للصدفة. واستندت الى مبدأ أن كل ما تحتاج إليه المقاومة يجب العمل على توفيره، سواء عبر الأصدقاء والحلفاء، أو من خلال برنامج إنتاج ذاتي أو حتى من مصادر بعيدة.
    خلال 16 عاماً، انتقلت المقاومة الى مستوى جديد ومختلف جذرياً عما كانت عليه عام 2006. مشاركة مجموعة كبيرة من كوادرها وعناصرها في مواجهة التكفيريين في سوريا والعراق، منحتهم خبرات كبيرة، وخصوصاً أن هذه المواجهة شهدت تنفيذ مناورات وتصورات عن مواجهات محتملة مع العدو، واختبار التنسيقات العسكرية بين الفرق والاختصاصات، وأمكن خلالها التعرف على تكنولوجيا وأسلحة جديدة، وتم تحصيل كميات كبيرة من الأسلحة النوعية التي وضعت في خدمة برامج المقاومة. أما العنصر المركزي الإضافي، فلم يتمثل فقط في رفع قدرات العاملين في التشكيلات العسكرية، بل في مستوى جديد من العمل الأمني والاستخباري من نوعيات تشبه ما تقوم به دول كبيرة. حتى وصلنا الى مرحلة تعرف فيها المقاومة عن العدو أكثر بكثير مما يعرف هو عنها، وهي علامة فارقة سيكون لها دورها في أي حرب مقبلة مع إسرائيل. «وربما يأتي اليوم الذي نخبرهم فيه ابتداءً عمّا يوجد في قاعة «شرفة غولدا» داخل ديمونا».

    الاستعداد الدائم
    يقول القائد الجهادي إن المقاومة في سباق دائم مع العدو منذ توقف إطلاق النار في 14 آب 2006 وحتى يومنا هذا، «وخصوصاً أن المهمة الجديدة التي ألقيت على عاتقنا بعد الحرب تركزت على بناء القدرة النوعية القادرة على تدمير الجيش الإسرائيلي، وليس فقط منعه من تحقيق أهدافه». ويضيف: «منذ انتهاء حرب تموز حتى اليوم، نعرف، بدقة، أن كل التقييم الذي قام به العدو ينتهي الى خلاصة بأننا متقدّمون عليه في مجالات لم يكن يعتقد أننا وصلنا فيها الى مراحل متقدمة. ومنذ صدور تقرير «فينوغراد» حول الحرب، مروراً بكل المناورات الكبرى، حتى مناورة مركبات النار الأخيرة، كان العدو يصل الى خلاصة مفادها أننا متقدمون عليه، رغم سعيه الدائم لمعالجة الثغرات لديه».
    ويوضح: «يتصرف العدو، على سبيل المثال، بين فترة وأخرى، على أساس أنه يعرف مستوى التسليح المتوافر لدينا. لكنه يكتشف لاحقاً أن المستوى الموجود لدينا أعلى وأكبر. نعرف أن هناك أموراً كان العدو يكتشفها بجهوده الاستخبارية. لكنّ هناك أموراً أخرى كنا نحن من يبادر الى الكشف عنها، ويحصل ذلك بأشكال مختلفة».

    الأسلحة الدقيقة
    عملت المقاومة، بعد عام 2000، على تطوير البنية الصاروخية بهدف الردع من جهة، وإيذاء العدو من جهة أخرى. كانت إسرائيل تعمل على عدّاد لإحصاء ما تفترض أنه موجود كمّاً في حوزة المقاومة، ثمّ تطوّر عملها لتحديد النوعية أيضاً. ويقول القائد الجهادي: «أخيراً، اكتشف العدو أن الأسلحة الدقيقة التي في حوزة المقاومة لم تصل إلينا في الوقت الذي اكتشف فيه الأمر، بل تأكد بأنها كانت عندنا قبل ذلك». ويضيف: «يحق للعدو أن يعيش حالة من الرعب بناءً على ما يعلمه فقط، فكيف الحال بما لا يعلمه». ويشرح: «عندما كان العدو يهدد بأنه إذا أصبح لدى حزب الله 20 صاروخاً دقيقاً فسيتحرّك ولن يسكت. كان لدينا المئات، وقد علم بذلك لاحقاً وصمت وأخفى ذيله واختبأ. وعندما اكتشف أن لدينا مئات من الصواريخ الدقيقة وتأكّد من ذلك، كان من حقه أن يعتقد أن ما لدينا تجاوز الآلاف.




    وعندما كشف خطته العملانية لمنع وصول السلاح، قال سماحة السيد له بصراحة إن الأمر انتهى والسلاح وصل. وكذلك الأمر عندما تحدث عن برنامج لمنع تطوير القدرات لدى المقاومة، فخرج السيد ليقول له من جديد إننا نصنع أسلحتنا ومستعدون لبيع السلاح النوعي من صواريخ ومسيّرات، وهذا فيه دلالة على قدرتنا على الإنتاج».
    في هذا السياق، يلفت القائد الجهادي الى أن «من حق العدو الافتراض بأن لدى المقاومة – على صعيد سلاح المسيّرات مثلاً – كل ما لدى إيران. لكن الحقيقة الكبرى هي أن لدى المقاومة في لبنان قدرات تتناسب مع حاجاتها، وهي قدرات غير موجودة حتى في الجمهورية الإسلامية».
    وفي اعتقاد القائد الجهادي، فإن المعركة مع العدو «لم تتوقف رغم كل الظروف، ولن تتوقف في يوم من الأيام. العدو يدرك هذه الحقيقة، وهو يسعى جاهداً من أجل عدم الوصول إلى الحرب، لأنه إذا أوصلَنا إلى الحرب فسنخوضها بقوّة، وستكون مدمّرة له بكل ما للكلمة من معنى، ولن يستطيع مواجهة حزب الله في كل الميادين. وإذا كان يهددنا بالدمار كعادته دائماً، فإننا نؤكّد أن الدمار في الكيان سيكون أكبر مما يتصوّر. على العدو أن يعلم أن الحرب مع حزب الله تعني هذه المرة تدمير البنية التحتية للكيان الإسرائيلي، بما يحوّل حياة المستوطنين الى جحيم حقيقي لا يمكنهم العيش فيه تحت النيران والدمار. نحن على يقين بأن العدو سيعمل على سحب الجثث من تحت الأنقاض خلال الحرب. هذا لم يجرّبه هو وشعبه من قبل».




    ويضيف بثقة عالية: «الجيش الإسرائيلي لا يمكنه حماية البحر عنده، وهو غير قادر على حماية منشآته الحيوية ولا حتى على حماية الحدود البرية، ولا يستطيع حماية الجبهة الداخلية من القصف، حتى إنه لا يستطيع حماية نفسه. هذا يؤدي الى خلاصة بأن العدو فقد القدرة الدفاعية، فكيف الحال واسم جيش هو «جيش الدفاع»، ما يعني أنه فقد علّة وجوده. وعندما يصبح فاقداً للقدرة الدفاعية، وهو فاقد أصلاً لحافزية الهجوم، فهذا يعني أنه أصبح جيشاً بلا قيمة، ويمكن التجرؤ عليه. ولذلك نقول بأنه في الحرب التي ستحصل بالتأكيد، يعلم الجيش الإسرائيلي علم اليقين أنه غير قادر على حماية السفن التي يفترض أن تدخل الى الموانئ الفلسطينية، فضلاً عن حماية السفن الحربية. كما يعلم أنه في اللحظة التي تقع فيها الحرب، لن نخوض حرباً دفاعية. لأول مرة في تاريخها، سيكون على إسرائيل الدفاع عن نفسها في أراضي 1948. نعلم أن العدو يخطط لإخلاء المناطق الحدودية بعمق 5 كلم على الحدود، وهذا بحد ذاته نعتبره انسحاباً مسبقاً، فكيف والعدو يعلم علم اليقين بأن كل مرابضه ومواقعه ستكون ضمن نيران المقاومة».
    وبحسب تقديرات القائد الجهادي «أكثر جهة لا تريد الحرب، هي الجيش الإسرائيلي نفسه، لأن المستوى العسكري يعرف أن إسرائيل استمدت قوتها من حالة التفرقة في محيطها، ومن قدرتها على الاستفراد بالجبهات واحدة بواحدة. لكن الصورة باتت اليوم معكوسة. القيادة الإسرائيلية والجيش بالتحديد يعرفان أن إسرائيل كيان مصطنع جمعت أوصاله في لحظة ضعف وخيانة وفرض على الشعب الفلسطيني الذي ترك وحده، وحاول هذا الكيان الصمود والبقاء والتوسّع بوهم الجيش الذي لا يقهر وبحماية خارجية (متعددة الأشكال). اليوم، الصورة معكوسة بالكامل». ويضيف إن الفرق هو أن ما تواجهه إسرائيل اليوم «مقاومة فرضت عليه خياراتها. وقد تجمعت اليوم مقاومات وشعوب على قتال إسرائيل مع الشعب الفلسطيني. إسرائيل اليوم تخاف من المقاومة. وهي تعيش خلافات داخلية لم يكن لها مثيل من قبل. بينما تقابلها مقاومة ذات عزم وإرادة قوية للقتال. وإسرائيل تعمل وفق خطة دفاعية لحماية نفسها وهي منكشفة أمام المقاومة التي تحضّر نفسها للهجوم عليها».

    مستعدون لكل الخيارات بما فيها التعامل مع كل من يوفر دعماً لإسرائيل

    وبحسب القائد الجهادي، فإن من المفيد تذكير الناس بمقولات رُدّدت منذ سنوات بعيدة وتصرّف معها الجميع باستخفاف. ويوضح: «أطلق سماحة الشهيد السيد عباس الموسوي مقولة إسرائيل سقطت. لم يفهم الكثير من الأصدقاء، فضلاً عن الأعداء، معنى كلمته حتى انسحبت إسرائيل، ولم تكن واقفة بل بفعل سقوطها. بينما نقول اليوم وبكل صراحة إن إسرائيل تفككت وهي تسير إلى الانهيار، والذي يفصلنا عنه هو الزمن والحرب فقط، ولن يوقف انهيارها شيء على الإطلاق. وكل من ربط نفسه بإسرائيل سينهار معها، لأن كل الموازين اليوم معكوسة».
    ويؤكد القائد الجهادي أن «أي حرب ستندلع معنا ستكون هذه نتيجتها، فكيف إذا لم نكن وحدنا. وفي حال اندلاع الحرب الواسعة، ستكون فصائل المقاومة الفلسطينية شريكة في المعركة، وسيتحرك الشعب الفلسطيني، وكذلك الحال في مناطق 1948، وهذا سيكون وبالاً على العدو الذي سيكون أمام خيارين: إما أن يذهب لتحمّل الأثمان الكبيرة والدموية، ثم يوقف الحرب مرغماً خاسراً، وهذا ما لا يحتمله، وإما إيقاف الحرب تحت نيران المقاومة منذ البداية».

    احتمالية توسع الحرب
    في الفرضيات العسكرية القائمة، يجري الحديث عن احتمالية حصول إسرائيل على دعم خاص من أميركا وغيرها، وأنه مثلما تستعد قوى المقاومة لأن تكون في جبهة واحدة فإن إسرائيل لن تترك وحيدة في المعركة. والمقاومة مستعدة لكل الخيارات، بما فيها كيفية التعامل مع كل من يوفر دعماً لإسرائيل، علماً بأن المعنيّين بشؤون الحرب مع العدو يعرفون أنه في الأيام العشرة الأخيرة من حرب تموز 2006، لم يستعن العدوّ بذخائر إضافية من الولايات المتحدة فقط، بل بخبراء أيضاً.

    لن نخوض حرباً دفاعية ولأول مرة سيكون على إسرائيل الدفاع عن نفسها

    ووصل به الأمر الى أن يستعين بطيارين أميركيين لمساعدة القوة الجوية الإسرائيلية وطياريها المنهكين بفعل الحرب التي فشلوا فيها، وهذا ما أخفوه عن العموم لكن ليس عنا». لكن، بحسب القائد الجهادي، «الأمر مختلف اليوم. نحن نعتقد بأن الأميركيين لن يجرؤوا على القتال المباشر الى جانب العدو، وهم ينعشون ذاكرتهم دائماً بما حلّ بقواتهم بين عامَي 1983 و1984».

    اللحظة الحاسمة
    «يعمل عقل المقاومة وفق قواعد ثابتة. وتتصرّف قيادتها وفق أسس ربما لا تكون مفهومة لدى العدو أو لدى آخرين لا يعرفون من نحن». يقول القائد الجهادي: «يجب على الجميع أن يعرفوا عنا أموراً تعكس حقيقتنا، وهي أمور لا تتعلق فقط بالقدرات، بل تخصّ عقيدتنا، وفكرة أننا نتبع ولاية الله الممتدة والمتّصلة بالنبي محمد، هي فكرة جوهرية في طريقة تفكيرنا وتصرفنا وتجعلنا متمرسين في ترجمة شعار هيهات منا الذلة».
    ويشدد القائد الجهادي على ضرورة استعادة قول خاص للسيد عباس الموسوي عندما خاطب العدو يوماً بأنه «رأى بعض بأسنا وسيأتي اليوم الذي سيرى فيه كلّ بأسنا، وهذا اليوم آتٍ لا محالة، وهو ما يخشاه العدو الإسرائيلي. لذلك فإنه بعدما كان يفاخر أمام شعبه بأعماله مقابل أعدائه، فإنه اليوم يخفي عن شعبه الحقائق معنا، حتى لا يصيبه الانهيار قبل الحرب. بينما تعرف قيادة المقاومة قوّتها وحقيقتها وتعرف قوّة عدوّها وضعفه وحقيقته، وتعمل وفق معايير وموازين ومعادلات وقواعد ثابتة وواضحة وحكيمة وشجاعة لم يعهد العدو مواجهتها من قبل».
    ويضيف: «الكيان بكل ما فيه نراقبه ونعرفه. الإسرائيلي يعتقد أنه يعلم كل شيء عنا، ويعتقد أنه يتفوّق علينا استخباريّاً. وكم من مرة تركنا العدو أسير معطياته واعتقاده. لكن، في كل مرة يكون هناك استحقاق، يكتشف العدو أنه جاهل بنا وبما عندنا. كمثال بسيط، في الفترة بين 2000 و2006، مرت 6 سنوات أثمرت ما حصل في حرب تموز وهو معلوم لديه. فكيف بعدما مرت 16 سنة على حرب تموز، ليعلم أن نتيجتها شيء آخر تماماً. العدو يعرف أن لدينا قدرات استخبارية نعرف من خلالها ما يفعله الآن، وما كان يفعله قبلاً، وما سيفعله لاحقاً، لأننا بتنا نفهم جيداً كيف يتصرف العقل الإسرائيلي».

    نعرف عن العدوّ أكثر مما يعرف عنّا وقد نخبره عما في قاعة «شرفة غولدا» في ديمونا

    وفي هذا السياق، يقول القائد الجهادي إن العدو «يعلم أننا نستفيد من أي فرصة، وأنه في حال ارتكاب أي خطأ، سنوجّه له ضربة كبيرة تجبره على عدم التفكير في مهاجمة لبنان. قد تكون مسألة ترسيم الحدود البحرية واحدة من هذه الفرص. وإذا فكر العدو بأي ردّ فعل، فسنردّ عليه مباشرة، وهذه تشكّل معضلة له. وهم يتذكّرون أنه عندما جاء الدبلوماسي الأميركي ديفيد ساترفيلد مهدداً بضرب موقع لنا في البقاع، تبلّغنا أمراً من سماحة السيد حسن بأن نجهّز صواريخنا، وعندما نسمع – مجرد أن نسمع – بضربة إسرائيلية، يطلب منا أن نضرب أهدافاً محددة مسبقاً على الفور ومن دون العودة الى القيادة. ولو وقع الهجوم، كان سيسقط للعدو عشرات القتلى. علمت إسرائيل لاحقاً بهذا. وحتى في عملية المسيّرات الأخيرة، نحن من تعمّد القيام بخطوات تجعل العدو يتعرّف على الطائرات المسيّرة. وإلا نحن قادرون على الدخول والخروج من دون معرفته وبهدوء كما فعلنا مراراً».
    ويختم القائد الجهادي الكبير: «حديثنا اليوم عن الماضي وعن تجارب العدو معنا وأحداث الساعة، لكن الذي يترقّبه العدو ليس ما يجري وما هو معلوم بل ما خفي عنه، لأنه سيصنع ما سيحدث لاحقاً. كما أن هاجس العدو وخوفه هو علمه بحقيقة ما سيصيبه من جرّاء ما يعلم، وكابوسه ورعبه الحقيقي هو جهله بما سيصيبه من خلال ما لا يعلم، ويحاول معالجة ضعفه وجهله قبل الحرب لأنه لن يستطيع معالجة شيء لا في الحرب ولا بعدها إن وقعت».

    Nasrallah: ‘Israel’s’ threats regarding demarcation deal are worthless

     August 23, 2022

    Source: Al Mayadeen Net

    By Al Mayadeen English 

    On the 40th anniversary of the establishment of Hezbollah, Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah calls back the legendary steadfastness in the July 2006 war that nipped the so-called “New Middle East” project in the bud.

    Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah

    Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Monday that the 2000 victory ended the so-called “Greater Israel” project and shattered the myth of the “invincible army”.

    Sayyed Nasrallah’s speech came during a festival organized by Hezbollah on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of its establishment.

    The Resistance leader considered that one of the results of the legendary steadfastness in the July 2006 war was thwarting the so-called “New Middle East” project and ending the “Greater Israel” project, not to mention the Resistance’s engagement in the file of restoring Lebanon’s oil and gas rights.

    Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that propaganda campaigns, distortion attempts, and lies can never destroy the will of this Resistance.

    “In 2006, they failed to crush the Resistance, which came out stronger and more powerful than ever,” he stressed.

    He also indicated that the Resistance is heading in the direction of developing its military structure and capabilities to keep pace with the developments at the level of weapons and technology.

    During his speech, Sayyed Nasrallah emphasized that the “Army, People, and Resistance” golden equation has become solid, whether included in the ministerial statement or not, stressing that liberating the rest of the occupied Lebanese land is a national responsibility.

    The Lebanese leader pointed out that the Resistance’s responsibilities in the next stage are to establish the deterrence equations necessary for protecting Lebanon’s land, people, and wealth.

    Regarding the file of border demarcation with occupied Palestine, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the Israeli threats are to no avail, adding that Hezbollah’s decision and approach are clear and “we are waiting for the coming days to act accordingly.”

    In his speech, the Secretary-General of Hezbollah underlined that the Palestinian cause is part of the religion, culture, and honor of this nation, stressing that there is no place for abandonment, neutrality, or retreat when it comes to this cause.

    The core of Hezbollah’s strategy toward the Palestinian cause is based on the ultimate conviction that the Palestinian people will continue to resist and reject nationalization and normalization, he indicated.

    “Our bet is on young people like Charbel Abu Daher and Nadia Fawaz, who refused to compete against the Israeli,” he said.

    Addressing Syria, which Hezbollah Secretary-General described as the backbone of the Axis of Resistance and the steadfastness front, characterized by ultimate refusal to Israeli conditions, he stressed, “By the day, we grow increasingly convinced of the validity of our choice and decision to go to Syria.”

    In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that “if Syria is exposed to any similar attacks, we will not hesitate to engage in the battlefields on its side.”

    He said, “It is our duty to thank our fellow brothers in Syria who, throughout 40 years, stood by us, welcomed us with arms wide open, and provided us with political, diplomatic, and security protection, which we deeply thank Syria and its leadership for.”

    Sayyed Nasrallah added, “We will remain an integral part of the Axis of Resistance, which we trust will always be the solid basis for confronting hegemony projects and defending holy sites,” pointing out that “Iran is the major regional power on which all the Resistance movements and the downtrodden people in the region rely.”

    He also revealed that Hezbollah contributed within its capabilities to fighting ISIS in Iraq and stressed that “if Iraq is exposed to this again and asks us, as in previous years, for help, we will not hesitate to send our leaders and fellow freedom fighters to go and fight side by side with our Iraqi brothers there.”

    On the relationship with Gulf states, the Lebanese leader said, “We had no problem in developing Lebanon’s relations, especially with the Gulf, but some aim at turning Lebanon into an affiliate, which cannot be tolerated.”

    Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that Hezbollah “will never be dragged and will not go into a civil war or engage in a sectarian strife,” recalling the Tayouneh ambush, in which a number of Lebanese citizens were martyred after snipers opened fire at unarmed peaceful protesters in Tayouneh, Beirut from the rooftops of buildings where they had stationed themselves.

    Therefore, he called for addressing this issue, just as others, as it is linked to civil peace.

    Hezbollah chief stressed that throughout the party’s 40 years in Lebanon, “we avoided slipping into any civil war or sectarian strife, and this was what was being prepared for Lebanon in 2005, but we cooperated with the political forces to save Lebanon from going into war and falling prey to sectarian strife.”

    In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah considered that “internal security and stability are the responsibility of the state and should be governed by the cooperation of the various state components.”

    “Some are making every effort to drag the Resistance into a clash with the Lebanese army and security forces, and this is a permanent and declared American project,” he stressed.

    To this end, Sayyed Nasrallah reminded the people that “the shooting on the Airport Bridge demonstration against the Oslo agreement was not the decision of the army, but rather a major breach within the personnel on the ground.”

    The Resistance leader pointed out that among the achievements is the transition of the relationship between Hezbollah and the Amal movement from a negative position to a very positive one, leading to integration.

    He said that Hezbollah is keen to maintain a permanent relationship with the Amal movement that is based on integration, cooperation, and unity, especially on major issues, pointing out that in the next stage, “we will remain keen on maintaining our understanding with the Free Patriotic Movement, as well as strengthening and developing it.”

    Nasrallah affirmed that Hezbollah will continue to be present in future governments to defend the people’s interests mainly due to the party’s clear political vision about the internal situation, indicating that Hezbollah’s main aim in the next stage is to cooperate with various political forces in order to build a just and capable state.

    “We strongly believe in the principle of partnership between the Lebanese components away from exclusivity,” he said.

    The Hezbollah Secretary-General stressed that the Resistance party will continue to serve people in all frameworks, institutions, and regions, despite the siege, sanctions, pressure, and threats against anyone who donates money to Hezbollah, reiterating that the Lebanese party will strengthen its institutions and that serving people is a core commitment and one of the greatest acts of worship. 

    “We are now in the eye of the storm, and this expresses the extent of our commitment to alleviate the living conditions and economic situation of the Lebanese people,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

    The Lebanese leader considered that “we are looking forward to a real sovereign country that is not subjugated to an American embassy or any other embassy or foreign hegemony,” noting that “the interference of the US embassy in the affairs of the Lebanese ministries is at its utmost level.”

    Sayyed Nasrallah indicated that Hezbollah sees that the international developments are positive and “in the interest of the Axis of Resistance and true sovereignty.”

    “Israel” Admits: We Can’t Afford A War with Hezbollah, Their Soldiers Are Much More Experienced Than Us

    July 15, 2022 

    By Staff, Agencies

    As US President Joe Biden continues his visit to the region, it seems that he hasn’t succeeded in assuring “Israeli” fears from Hezbollah.

    According to “Israeli” media, Hezbollah is now believed to have upgraded abilities, making a war now pricier for “Israel”.

    “Recent events show that Hezbollah is shoring up its visibility toward ‘Israel’, demonstrating a chip in the deterrence that has existed for over a decade. There is a change in Hezbollah’s policy. They are showing more presence on the border, being more provocative and in general showing more willingness to go back to the reality that existed before 2006,” said Sarit Zehavi, a former “Israeli” military intelligence officer and founder of the Alma Research and Education Center.

     “‘Israel’ has yet to make the decision to initiate a major military offensive against the armament of Hezbollah,” said Zehavi.

    For his part, Dr. Eyal Pinko, an “Israeli” professor at “Bar-Ilan” University’s Political Studies Department and an expert on military strategy and intelligence warned that “The average Hezbollah soldier is much more experienced and trained than the average ‘Israeli’ soldier. Hezbollah is a highly organized army. ‘Israel’ cannot afford a war with Hezbollah; the losses will be immense.”

    “Hezbollah’s firepower is highly significant; it is not clear at all that ‘Israel’ will be able to handle it,” said Pinko, noting that “Its ability to use its force is not harmed, but its legitimacy to do so is reduced.”

    Meanwhile, the “Jerusalem Post” cautioned that Hezbollah is most dangerous and immediate enemy to “Israel”. “Israeli” intelligence officers estimate Hezbollah has accumulated around 150,000 unguided rockets, with Iranian assistance.

    “The multilayered ‘Israeli’ air systems, considered to be highly sophisticated, will likely have difficulty fending off barrages of thousands of rockets every day in the event of a war with Hezbollah,” the report said, pointing out that “The militant organization is also believed to have improved its precision missile abilities in recent years. ‘Israel’s’ air force is believed to be behind hundreds of strikes that have targeted this project. Yet the success appears to be limited, and the huge arsenal of rockets is also widely believed to be intact.”

    “Israeli” Drills: Ground Forces Needed to Face Hezbollah, Radwan Forces to Occupy Northern Posts

    May 27, 2022

    By Staff, Ynet

    As “Israel” continues its major military drills for the third week, its Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi excluded the idea of defeating Hezbollah, if the entity’s ground forces don’t operate a across the Lebanese border.

    Speaking to high-ranking military commanders, Kochavi feared that “Hezbollah has a dedicated elite force they call the Radwan Force trained to breach the border and enter northern ‘Israel’ to occupy a military base or a one of the ‘Israeli’ communities.”

    The “Israeli” military further estimated that Hezbollah is also able to deploy their 45,000 short range rockets, 80,000 medium and long-range missiles – dozens of which are precise missiles, and mortar shells.

    It further cautioned that “As many as 1,500 rockets will be launched from Lebanon per day.”

    However, it tried to assure that “The forces will target Hezbollah command and control centers near the border, anti-aircraft positions and observation posts as well as Hezbollah’s troop movements to the South of the country.”

    Meanwhile, the “Israeli” army estimated that after nine days of fighting, that there may be thousands of casualties in Lebanon.

    The “Israeli” army has already prepared stores of food, medical supplies and other critical supplies on the ground.

    The joint infantry, armor and air forces are currently training for a ground war against Hezbollah along with intelligence units, satellite images and other technologies.

    May 25 Liberation Day: Soul is what fights

    May 25, 2022

    By Ali Jezzini 

    With the blood and sweat of thousands of its sons and daughters, Lebanon was liberated on May 25, 2000.

    During the celebration that followed Liberation Day, the leader of the resistance Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah described the Israeli occupation regime as “frailer than a spider’s web”

    Twenty-two years have passed since the Israelis were forced, for the first time, to withdraw from an occupied Arab land unconditionally. The event that took place on May 25th of the year 2000 is seen widely as a turning point in the greater Arab struggle against the Israeli occupation and colonization of Arab lands. 

    The day the occupation completed its forced withdrawal from Lebanese territories came to be known as the Liberation and Resistance Day in Lebanon, a day that is commemorated and celebrated all over the country annually. It became a founding element in the story of the Arab and Lebanese people’s struggle in general, and for the people of Southern Lebanon in particular. Memories of the occupation that brought death and destruction to the lives of many are still vivid to this day, as not only were the horrors of such a period carved in the collective memory of the Lebanese people but also the idea that the cost of resistance will always be more bearable than that of submission.

    So how did the people, historically described as poor peasants, manage to inflict such a strategic defeat on the Israeli war machine?

    Building the momentum

    As the occupation began in 1978 and then expanded in 1982, the Lebanese resistance factions took up their arms and dealt heavy blows to the Israeli occupation troops present on the Lebanese soil via various military actions. New resistance factions were formed as well. They followed a wide array of ideological doctrines that ranged from communism and nationalism to Islamic ideology. This piece will be focusing on the actions, operations, and plans of the resistance party that played a major role in the military defeat of the Israelis and their expulsion from Lebanon – except for the Shebaa Farms and the Kfar Chouba Hills – the Islamic resistance in Lebanon, i.e. Hezbollah.

    The resistance project was launched in Beirut in 1982 by only a few men who were frustrated by how the people under Israeli occupation were left to meet their fate by everyone as the country was engulfed in civil war. Not with words, but with solid actions, iron, and lead, these men decided to stand their ground and fight. The oldest of these men hadn’t reached his thirties, these “young and crazy” men ended up changing the fate of Lebanon and the region for good.

    Numbering from a few dozens to hundreds in the nineties, the resistance had employed multiple tactics, from ambushes to anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) strikes or mining the roads taken by Israeli patrols. Their foe was not only the Israeli occupation forces; there was also a collaborator militia under the name of the South Lebanon Army (SLA), whom the Israelis used as cannon fodder to man the front outposts with the hope of mitigating their losses.

    The Islamic Resistance’s ability to adapt to shifting conditions was proved by Hezbollah’s military operations in the 1990s. Hezbollah attacked with direct assaults when the Israeli forces and SLA-established permanent outposts. The resistance moved to use indirect fire using mortars and rocket fire when the occupation and its collaborators bolstered their outposts. The resistance resorted to ambushes, improvised explosive devices (IEDs), and mines as the IOF changed tactics and became a more mobile force with more patrols.

    As for the use of ATGMs, the Lebanese resistance deployed even more complex armament systems, ranging from the older Sagger ATGMs to the more modern American-made TOWs and Soviet-made Konkurs. Between September and October 1997, using TOW systems, the resistance, for instance, managed to destroy a Magach and three Merkava tanks, dealing a serious blow to the IOF’s morale. The Islamic resistance’s adaptability earned it admiration from its enemies. The head of the Golani brigade, Moshe Kaplinsky, remarked that “Hezbollah was a learning organization.” 

    The War was characterized by an intellectual clash between the resistance and the IOF. For instance, in the 1990s, when the IOF started utilizing sniffer dogs to find wire-triggered IEDs, the resistance started hiding its mines under fiberglass boulders as camouflage, then resorted to using radio control to set off the mines. The IOF, in turn, tried countering this tactic by jamming the radio signals, the resistance responded by using cellphone-triggered devices. The Israelis countered this tactic by jamming cellphone signals. The resistance finally employed infrared signals to detonate the explosive devices and continued inflicting tremendous damage to the Israeli occupying forces.

    Culminating the effects

    The resistance’s professional use of IEDs and mines culminated in the killing of Erez Gerstein in 1999; the top Israeli commander in Lebanon at that time. It was a huge calamity for the occupation and its already crumbling morale as a result of the attrition war it was suffering at the hands of the resistance. The SLA was not spared either, as its second-in-command, Aql Hashim, was killed the following year using similar tactics.

    One of the most significant victories for the resistance, both on the intelligence and tactical levels, was the 1997 ambush of sixteen navy commandos from the elite Shayetet 13 unit near the coastal town of Ansariyah, which resulted in the death of 12 Israeli soldiers. It was revealed by the secretary-general of the resistance later on that the ambush was made possible by the resistance’s hacking of Israeli drones earlier that year, which allowed them to acquire intel that helped identify the imminent incursion.

    Operations continued as the occupation of Lebanon was withering, with their number increasing substantially. 4,928 of the total 6,058 operations occurred between 1996 and 2000, and 1999 alone saw the resistance carrying out 1,528 operations. The war was long and consuming for the Israelis, and not only the military was suffering. The Israeli society as a whole was crumbling underneath the weight of losses in Lebanon.

    The resistance using rockets to establish a deterrence equation, which prevented the Israelis from targeting civilians in Lebanon, played a major role in cutting the Israeli society’s appetite for war. The Israelis felt that their government, even after the wars of 1993 and 1996, was unable to stop the rocket retaliation against settlements. Despite the numerous violations committed by the IOF against the rules of such proclaimed and explicit equation, the Israelis did reduce their attacks against civilians in Lebanon.

    The victory

    The last Israeli soldier left Lebanese soil (except for Shebaa farms and Kfarshoba hills) at 6:48 am on May 24 of the year 2000, and the long-awaited relief of the Lebanese people from their suffering ended. The SLA was breaking up in the days leading up to the 24th of May, culminating in its complete disintegration following that date. The members of the collaborator army were divided into 2 groups, the first surrendered to the resistance, while the second left with the Israelis to occupied Palestine. One of the SLA officers said during his last seconds on Lebanese soil: “We expected to be expelled, but [not like this] with honor.” A scene that was engrained in the Lebanese memory, besides the scenes of the prisoners of Al-Khiam detention camp breaking their chains and breathing in the fresh breeze of freedom.

    During the celebration that followed Liberation Day, the leader of the resistance, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, described the Israeli occupation regime as “frailer than a spider’s web.” These words echoed within the heads of the Israelis for the better half of a decade, so much so that Israeli generals labeled their bid to occupy Bint Jbeil (where Sayyed Nasrallah made the speech in which he said the occupation was frailer than a spider’s web) “Operation Webs of Steel”. The operation took place during the Israeli 2006 war on Lebanon. “Tel Aviv” failed miserably in its endeavor again, but that is a story for another day.

    The Israeli occupation regime’s existential concerns became much more vivid following its defeat and humiliation in 2000 and 2006. The mighty “Israel” that always bragged about its operational military art and competency and created an illusion of invincibility became powerless, frail, and paranoid. The resistance and its people not only liberated their land with their blood and sweat but proved to all the Arabs and the oppressed of this world that, with a clear mind, a strong will, and a passionate soul, no occupation shall last.

    ‘Israelis’ Obsessed with Hezbollah’s UAVs, Launch Missiles at Own Drone [Video]

      May 19, 2022

    Israeli occupation military: A drone belonging to us was mistakenly identified as a hostile drone and intercepting missiles were launched as a result of this mistake

    By Al-Ahed News

    Once again the ‘Israelis’ themselves expose their obsession with the drones the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement possesses.

    In yet another embarrassing incident, the Zionist occupation military activated its ‘Iron Dome’ and launched missiles towards a supposedly infiltrating aircraft that at the end of the day turned to be an ‘Israeli’ one.

    According to ‘Israeli’ military spokesman, sirens were activated in several northern settlements on Thursday morning after a suspected drone infiltration coming from the Lebanese airspace. The Iron Dome launched several missiles towards the drone that was found later as belonging to the ‘Israeli’ occupation army, which was mistakenly identified as a hostile aircraft, the Zionist military explained.

    Before figuring out that it was an ‘Israeli’ drone, the Zionist military was claiming that the aircraft was brought down; however, after admitting that the drone was an ‘Israeli’ one, the claim of downing it was refuted.

    The Zionist military started telling conflicting stories, but remained consistent on the fact that the sirens were activated in the Upper Galilee as a result of a wrong identification of the aircraft.

    Earlier, ‘Israeli’ Channel 12 alleged that the sirens were activated after launching missiles to intercept and bring down an unmanned aerial vehicle belonging to Hezbollah that infiltrated the northern occupied Palestinian airspace coming from South Lebanon.

    It is worth noting that the confusion among the Zionist military members comes at the climax of security alertness amid the “Chariots of Fire” maneuvers, the ‘Israeli’ entity’s largest wargames in several years, which simulate a month-long all-out war against Hezbollah and Hamas on all fronts from the North to the South.

    This is the second aircraft the ‘Israeli’ occupation army downs before figuring out that it belongs to it. Such incidents come as a result of the security obsession and loss the Zionists are through due to the major and numerous transformations unfolding in the region, namely Hezbollah’s growing might, and its Secretary General, His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s threats about a direct and a rapid response to any attack the ‘Israeli’ army might commit during their military exercises.

    The role of the US in Seif Al-Quds exposed

    By Farah Hajj Hassan 

    What role did the US play in the Israeli aggression against Gaza during the battle of Seif Al-Quds, and how can its relentless support for the occupation continue despite dissenting voices within its own government?

    The role of the US in Seif Al-Quds exposed

    The battle of Seif Al-Quds in Gaza was a turning point in the Palestinian-Israeli equation, with severe consequences for the occupation, even if it was touted as a victory for “Israel” by the west.  

    “Israel” unleashed its aggression against the Palestinian people, killing 313 Palestinians, including 71 minors.

    Like the latest Israeli occupation forces (IOF)’s assaults on worshippers in Al-Aqsa during the holy month of Ramadan, last year’s events were preceded by the main catalyst – the assaults on the Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan neighborhoods in East Al-Quds by settlers under the protection of the IOF.

    Whereas in the past, the Israelis had a monopoly over the narrative concerning their actions within the occupied territories, in 2021 they suffered an unexpected blow on social media they did not expect. Pro-Palestinian content was being circulated and shared on social media platforms like never before.

    #SaveSheikhJarrah became a trending hashtag and prominent Palestinian voices and pro-Palestinian supporters amplified their voices on platforms in a way that just could no longer be ignored or repressed by “Israel”.

    Social media sites did attempt to limit pro-Palestinian content repeatedly but could not face off against the Chinese platform TikTok where live images and videos were shared, depicting the very ugly reality that Western media outlets were deliberately clouding.

    How does the US contribute to the aggression? In the same way, it currently contributes to Ukraine’s war due to its vested interest against Russia… with billions of dollars in arms.

    As with Ukrainian troops, the US participates in funding and training initiatives with Israeli troops in order to continue its brutal aggression against the people of Palestine. 

    In January, a US-based Breaking Defense military news outlet reported that the Israeli occupation has a list of weapons it planned to urge the US to add to its possible emergency stockpile to use against Iran and Lebanon.

    In May of 2021, US President Joe Biden approved a deal to sell $735 million worth of precision-guided weapons to “Israel”.

    Months after the battle of Seif Al-Quds, the US approved a bill that limits the security assistance of “Israel” to $3.3 billion annually, while it ensures a “series of programs aimed at furthering peace in the region.”

    What part of giving an occupying force $3 billion annually for use against an oppressed and blockaded people is part of furthering peace? 

    Not only does the US fund “Israel’s” largest-ever “defense” program, the Iron Dome, but it continuously pours billions into the Israeli security fund.

    No better friend: The USA

    When the US approved the Iron Dome funding, Yair Lapid, the Israeli Foreign Minister, declared that “Israel” has no better friend than the US. 

    How can he be wrong, when during the Seif Al-Quds battle, Biden’s statements only mirrored those of Presidents before him, touting “Israel’s” right to “defend” itself, without a word of criticism directed at “Israel”?

    Not only that, but the US blocked a UN Security Council motion that would have ended the Israeli violence.

    In December, the US inked a deal with “Israel” worth $2 billion to purchase 12 CH-53K aircraft and two KC-46 refueling aircraft.

    In February, in a speech to the Israeli Knesset, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vowed “ironclad” US support. She specifically voiced her hope that the US Senate will soon adopt legislation to support the replenishment of “Israel’s” Iron Dome.

    The US has obsessively included funds for the program in its overall federal spending on several occasions despite the opposition of members of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, who consider “Israel” an apartheid state guilty of war crimes.

    She went on to promise “Israel” assistance in various security areas, including the fight against Iran. Furthermore, Pelosi called Iran’s nuclear program a “global threat”, despite Tehran’s repeated assurances to world leaders that it has no plans to produce nuclear weapons.

    A shift in attitudes

    In September 2021, the US signed a new deal to grant “Israel” a further $1 billion in funding. Biden, furthermore, “affirmed his unwavering support for ‘Israel’ and its defense needs, and welcomed the historic $1 billion allocations to replenish ‘Israel’s’ Iron Dome system.” 

    However, the allocation did not go through Congress as seamlessly as the Israelis are used to. The reason behind that is growing America-first, anti-Israeli, pro-Palestinian sentiment in the US.

    The number of supporters of “Israel” within US politics is numerous, however, a new wave of dissenting voices is emerging. The most notorious is Ilhan Omar. Omar accused “Israel” of abusing human rights, saying, “We sold $175 billion in weapons last year—more than anyone in the world—to some of the worst human rights abusers in the world,” on Twitter.

    “Here’s an idea: don’t sell arms to anyone who violates human rights,” she added. 

    In agreement with Omar, Rep. Rashida Tlaib called “Israel” an “apartheid state” guilty of war crimes.

    At the time, Israeli media reported that the approval of US military aid to “Israel” was postponed in the wake of the opposition of a group of Democratic members of Congress. Democratic members announced that they will not vote in favor of the budget if it includes interceptor missiles for the Iron Dome.

    This is a massive shift in US politics considering the amount of pro-“Israel” media coverage that US news outlets bombard viewers with. 

    Not only did the US allocate the funds to “Israel” in 2021, but Biden also pledged an additional $1 billion to Bennett for the failures of the Iron Dome.

    Only 8.1% of Democrats pinned the blame for the Gaza war on Palestinians, while an astounding 34.8% blamed “Israel”. Overall, Americans aged 18-34 blamed “Israel”; 30.1%, more than those who blamed Palestinians; 20.2%, and 45% of Democrats aged 18-34 blamed “Israel”, more than those who blamed Palestinians; 6.1%. 

    Furthermore, 43.7% of Democrats and a quarter of Americans overall, want the US to “apply more pressure on “Israel,” including holding out on the funding. 

    On July 29, 2021, the University of Maryland Critical Issues poll from June 22 to July 21 shows that the polarization within the US concerning the “Israel/Palestine debate” is only growing. 

    Ukraine good, Palestine bad

    Finally, what many pro-Palestinian activists have noticed is the stark difference in the support the US has been touting for Ukraine and how it massively differs from the media’s attitude toward the Palestinian struggle.

    Not only was the US the main contributor and constant enabler of Israeli aggression against Palestine for years, but it also has the audacity to claim it views Palestinians and Israelis in the same light. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken in June tweeted that “Israelis and Palestinians deserve equal measures of security, freedom, opportunity, and dignity.” 

    To want equal measures of security for an oppressor and his victim is an oxymoron. The US knows that “Israel” is the settler and aggressor and knows very well that its constant financial and moral support is the reason “Israel” has become as emboldened as it is.  

    The US loves playing the sanctions game, as we saw with Russia, Iran, and China

    When it has a reason to declare a war on a nation, it usually does everything in its power to interfere. Why then does it enable “Israel” to continue its crimes? Because “Israel”, like Ukraine, is a pawn for US interest in the region.

    As the military operation in Ukraine continues, millions of refugees flee to neighboring countries, and as massive encouragement is given to Ukrainians’ “popular resistance”, Palestinians around the world wonder why their cause has not been backed even remotely as close to Ukraine’s?

    Could it be because they have been resisting for more than 70 years and not only a couple of weeks?

    The reality is that the West and the US in particular only encourage resistance when it is in their favor.

    Soon after the military operation was initiated, the West circulated gut-wrenching images of Ukrainian civilians with Molotov cocktails in an attempt to “resist” Russia. Meanwhile, Palestinians, who are internationally recognized as occupied people, are called “terrorists” by Western media, are accused of using human shields, are attacked in Western media for being “anti-semitic” due to BDS policies, and are widely told to give up their cause and agree to a two-state solution to “end the violence.”

    According to Nour Odeh, a political analyst, what this crisis has done is reveal and expose the fact that powerful countries treat international law as a tool to serve their political goals and interests, and they are willing to bend the law − and to even undermine it − in order to protect an ally like “Israel”.

    This is exactly what the US has done for decades. However, with the Resistance in Palestine achieving a remarkable victory, the US and “Israel” remain wary and have come to realize that a confrontation with Palestine now is nowhere close to previous confrontations.

    ‘Israel’ Fears Hundreds of Hezbollah’s Drones, Thousands of Precision Missiles

    March 18, 2022

    By Staff, Agencies

    In the course of posing itself as the victim instead of the aggressor and the occupier, a Zionist regime’s mouthpiece claimed that Hezbollah’s efforts to obtain drones and precision-guided missiles heighten the threat along the ‘Israeli’ occupation regime’s already sensitive northern border with Lebanon.

    ‘Israeli’ regime’s Ambassador to the United Nations Gilad Erdan claimed in a letter to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres that there are “troubling developments which threaten the ‘peace’ and ‘security’ of ‘Israel’ and Lebanon, as well as the region as a whole.”

    The letter, presented in advance of a Security Council discussion scheduled for Thursday on the secretary-general’s periodic report on adherence to Resolution 1701, which set the ceasefire terms that ended the ‘Israeli’ war on Lebanon in July 2006, added that the developments include “efforts by Hezbollah to obtain advanced weapon systems, including UAVs and Precision-Guided Missiles, underline a troubling reality on the ground.”

    Erdan referenced Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s February 16 speech in which he spoke of the Resistance movement’s “advanced capabilities in self-production of drones, and its acquired ability to convert rockets into Precision-Guided Missiles [PGM].”

    “Nasrallah once again referred to the expertise in transforming Hezbollah’s arsenal of rockets into PGM’s,” Erdan said.

    ‘Israel’s’ ALMA Research Center claims that Hezbollah has a minimum of “2,000 unmanned aerial vehicles, many of them advanced UAVs from Iran and others manufactured independently.”

    In the same regard, the ‘Israeli’ occupation regime’s military Air Force, considered the strongest air force in the Middle East, has admitted that identifying and intercepting drones – whether belonging to Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in Gaza, or Iranian ones – is challenging, and considers drones to be one of the top five threats facing Tel Aviv.

    Last month, Hezbollah flew a small, remotely piloted aircraft into the ‘Israeli’-occupied Palestinian airspace. Hezbollah announced that the drone was able to fly inside the occupied territories for 40 minutes and returned unharmed. The Zionist regime’s Air Force dispatched several fighter jets but failed to take it down.

    Although the Zionist military has various ways to intercept drones – like electronic warfare, the ‘Iron Dome’ and fighter jets like the F-35 – Hezbollah’s drone platforms pose a serious challenge to identify and shoot down since they are small, fast and fly low to the ground, making it hard for ‘Israeli’ radar to detect them.

    In addition to its drones, Hezbollah has an arsenal of an estimated 150,000 rockets and missiles.

    رسائل مشفّرة في الطائرة المسيّرة

     ناصر قنديل

    أعلن ​حزب الله​ في بيان أنه “بتاريخ اليوم الجمعة الواقع فيه 18-2-2022 أطلقت المقاومة ‏الإسلامية الطائرة المسيّرة “حسّان” داخل الأراضي الفلسطينية ‏المحتلة وجالت في المنطقة المستهدفة لمدة أربعين دقيقة في مهمة ‏استطلاعيّة امتدّت على طول سبعين كيلومتراً شمال فلسطين المحتلة، ‏وبالرغم من كل محاولات العدو المتعدّدة والمتتالية لإسقاطها عادت ‏الطائرة “حسّان” من الأراضي المحتلة سالمة بعد أن نفّذت المهمة ‏المطلوبة بنجاح ودون أن تؤثر على حركتها كل إجراءات العدو ‏الموجودة والمتبعة”.

    الرسالة الأولى أن سلاح الطيران لدى المقاومة الإسلامية يخلد اسم أحد مؤسسيه البارزين الذي اغتالته مخابرات جيش كيان الاحتلال، هو الشهيد حسان اللقيس، ويقول إن اغتيال اللقيس بهدف وضع حد لتقدم هذا السلاح وتطوّره لم يفلح، وفشل في تحقيق أهدافه،

    والدليل هو هذا الاختراق المميز، لجهة الدقة والنجاح والإرباك الذي سبّبه لجيش الاحتلال وأفشل عبره كل إجراءات التتبع والمراقبة ومحاولات إسقاط الطائرة، رغم استخدام جيش الاحتلال كل التقنيات التي يملكها من رادات للمراقبة وقبة حديدية وطيران حربي وطيران المروحيات، وبالحصيلة طائرة المقاومة تنفذ المهمة وتعود الى قواعدها سالمة، فالاغتيال فشل فشلاً ذريعاً في تحقيق أهدافه بمقدار ما نجحت الطائرة في تحقيق أهدافها، وبقدر ما فشل الاحتلال في تتبعها وإسقاطها.

    الرسالة الثانية، أن طائرة المقاومة نفذت مهمة استطلاعية داخل فلسطين المحتلة، وجالت في المنطقة المستهدفة، وطالما أن أجواء لبنان مستباحة أمام المهام الاستطلاعيّة لطيران جيش الاحتلال، فالمقاومة التي فعّلت شبكات دفاعها الجوي لإسقاط الطائرات المسيّرة التي يرسلها الاحتلال، وسعت مفهوم توازن الردع، باقتحام الأجواء في فلسطين المحتلة، ومقابلة الجولات الاستطلاعيّة بالجولات الاستطلاعيّة.

    الرسالة الثالثة، أن الطائرة نفّذت مهمتها بعمق سبعين كيلومتراً شمال فلسطين المحتلة خلال أربعين دقيقة، أي أنها في الذهاب والإياب والمناورة تملّصت من الرادارات والصواريخ والطائرات، إضافة للمسافة التي قطعتها ذهاباً وإياباً من نقطة الانطلاق المجهولة الى الحدود، لأن مسافة الـ 70 كلم هي العمق داخل فلسطين المحتلة، فهي بالتأكيد قطعت كحد أدنى مسافة تزيد عن 140 كيلومتراً، وهي حكماً احتاجت لقطع قرابة الـ 200 كلم الى 300 كلم في الـ 40 دقيقة، وبالتالي كانت تسير كحد أدنى بسرعة تزيد عن 210 كلم في الساعة، ما لم نقل 300 كلم في الساعة أو 500 كلم في الساعة، وسرعة الـ 200 كلم في الساعة هي الحد الأقصى المفترض لطائرة بيرقدار التركيّة الشهيرة، وللطائرات المسيّرة التي تنتجها إيران وفقاً للمراجع المعتمدة في هذا المجال من قبل الغرب و”إسرائيل”، وتلك التي يستخدمها أنصار الله وفقاً للمعلومات التي ينشرها خبراء الخليج والغرب عن قدرات هذه الطائرات، فليدرس قادة جيش الاحتلال جيداً معاني هذه الرسالة وهي تكشف بالتأكيد جيلاً تملك المقاومة على الأقل ثلاثة أجيال أشدّ تقدماً منه، كما تقول تجربتها.

    الرسالة الرابعة أن عمق الـ 70 كلم الذي استكشفته الطائرة، وغير المحدّد الوجهة غرباً وشرقاً، يشمل ما يُعرف بالعمق الاستراتيجي في كيان الاحتلال، أو كل الجبهة الشمالية كما يسمّيها أركان جيش الاحتلال، الذي يعرف ماهية ونوعية المواقع المنتشرة فيها والتي وقعت تحت أنظار رصد المقاومة عبر رحلة هذه الطائرة، وعليه أن يحلل ويستنتج تداعيات ما قامت به الطائرة، وهل لذلك علاقة بالتوقيت لاستطلاع نشاط معين أو حركة معينة، أم هو استطلاع عام لمواقع ومعدّات ومنشآت ثابتة، لكن عمق الـ 70 كلم لم يرد لمجرد لفت النظر لسرعة الطائرة، لأن ذلك كان يمكن تحقيقه بالإشارة الأوضح للمسافة التي قطعتها الطائرة ذهاباً وإياباً، والتي يفترض أن تكون تجاوزت الـ 300 كلم.

    الرسالة الخامسة أنه بالرغم من كل المحاولات المتعدّدة والمتتالية، وربما المصوّرة، أنجزت الطائرة مهمتها وعادت سالمة، وهنا بمفهوم ميزان القوى الذي كان محققاً لنوع من التوازن بين المقاومة وجيش الاحتلال، لا يقارن ما تنجزه المقاومة في هذا المجال بما كان ينجزه جيش الاحتلال. فالطائرات المسيّرة والطيران الحربي لديه وعائداتهما بالمعلومات والقدرة النارية، جزء من ميزان القوى الذي حقق التوازن، وعندما تضيف المقاومة في رصيدها قدرة جمع المعلومات الاستخبارية بصورة روتينيّة من داخل فلسطين المحتلة، فهذا سلاح كاسر للتوازن، لأن المقاومة بنت كل جهوزيّتها وهي تضع في حسابها قدرات العدو الجويّة، بينما بنى الكيان كل مقدراته ومنشآته وهو يعتبر تفوّقه الجويّ أبدياً، بمثل ما جعل شمال فلسطين قاعدة لأغلب هذه المنشآت لبعدها عن الجبهات التي كانت مشتعلة مع مصر وسورية والأردن، ولاستهتاره بما يمكن للبنان أن يمثله عسكرياً من خطر.

    الهمروجة الداخلية الاحتجاجيّة بصراخ وضجيج، لا تستحق النقاش، لأنها تعبّر فقط عن حجم الوجع الإسرائيلي، الذي صار فوراً وجعاً أميركياً خليجياً بحكم درجة القربى، وتحوّل بسبب معادلة حليف حليفي حليفي إلى وجع لدى بعض اللبنانيين، فوصلت الرسالة السادسة، أن كيان الاحتلال أصيب إصابة موجعة.

    “Israel” Suffers the Shock of Hassan Drone: What If It was Booby-Trapped?

    February 19, 2022

    By Jihad Haider

    Beirut – The reconnaissance tour of the Islamic Resistance’s Hassan drone, over northern occupied Palestine, surprised the “Israeli” enemy’s political and military leadership. The drone, which roamed the targeted area for 40 minutes in a reconnaissance mission, flew for 70 kilometers and then returned safe.

    However, the enemy’s leadership faces a new level of challenges and dangers:

    • Hassan’s drone embodied the resistance leadership’s decision to establish a new level of response.
    • The resistance presented a practical example of the drones it was manufacturing and the advanced technological advantages it had reached.
    • It revealed the “Israeli” air system’s inability to confront the advanced resistance drones, after it succeeded in roaming over tens of kilometers and returning safe.
    • It carried out reconnaissance and security missions at a depth of tens of kilometers, for the first time in the history of the conflict with “Israel”.
    • It opened a series of questions that will remain a source of concern for the intelligence and operational services, about the information treasure it carried.
    • The successive failed attempts to down the drone, using various means of military interception from helicopters and missiles, created an atmosphere of war among the settlers.
    • The “Israeli” army’s reaction in the occupied Palestinian sky brought the settlers to the shelters, and they returned to their routine lives only when the army issued a statement urging them to do so.
    • It caused widespread confusion among the enemy’s political and military leadership as well as in its media institutions. Some of the confusion aspects appeared in the repeated and various statements, until the “Israeli” media recognized the danger of what happened.
    • It constituted an additional qualitative achievement for the resistance in the war of consciousness, acknowledged by the “Israeli” entity’s experts.
    • The Islamic resistance’s statement in which it announced its responsibility for the operation deepened the confusion of the enemy’s leadership and scored a resounding achievement.
    • The resistance’s statement put the “Israeli” leadership before the challenge of finding the appropriate response.
    • The Islamic Resistance unveiled to the enemy’s leadership its ability to respond in proportion, when it comes to air strikes and reconnaissance over Lebanon.
    • The resistance sent the enemy and its people a message that the sky of occupied Palestine may be the arena for a new equation related to the air action.
    • The resistance placed the political and military decision-making institutions in the enemy’s entity before a terrifying scenario: What if the next time Hezbollah decided to send a drone swarm?
    • The flight of the enemy’s warplanes over Beirut and the suburbs revealed the restrictions imposed by the resistance on the enemy’s leadership regarding the level of response. Simply, “Israel” fears of resistance’s counter response to any fire attack on the Lebanese territory.
    • This round showed two contradictory scenes on both sides of the front: The high morale of the resistance crowd, in contrast to the atmosphere of terror that brought the settlers to the shelters.
    • The resistance provided tangible evidence of its ability to send a booby-trapped drone – if it wanted – and to carry out focused qualitative operation against any of the strategic targets at a depth of tens of kilometers.
    • It formed a new foundational station in the deterrence equation from the gate of the resistance’s ability to respond locally focused, which will be on the assessment and decision table when studying local or broad operational options.
    • The resistance opened the door wide to questions about the surprises that it still hides as the levels of challenges turn to more dangerous.

    ‘Israeli’ Occupation Military Couldn’t Bring Down a Drone That Entered via Northern Airspace

    February 18, 2022

    By Staff

    Sirens sounded on Friday morning and explosions were heard in the Upper Galilee, in the occupied Palestinian territories, as reports suggested that a drone has entered through the Lebanese airspace.

    In a related context, ‘Israeli’ occupation military’s spokesman Avichai Adraee claimed that “an explosive-laden drone was observed as entering from the Lebanese airspace, in which interrupting missiles were launched to intercept it but failed to bring it down. Additionally, drones were launched to interrupt it, but the drone has been lost and the military is searching for it.”

    ‘Israeli’ Walla! news website also noted that settlers in the north entered police centers after hearing the sirens, while an explosion was heard in Safad.

    Zionist media further mentioned that “initial investigations suggested that the drone belongs to Hezbollah, was unarmed, and entered to collect intelligence information,” however, “it is unknown whether the drone was brought down or returned safely.”

    The ‘Israeli’ reports also stated that tracing the drone was lost minutes after the sirens and the interception system were activated.

    Later reports indicated that the ‘Israeli’ occupation regime admits that it failed to bring down the drone it claimed to have entered the occupied Palestinian airspace from Lebanon.

    ‘Israeli’ commentators considered that hours after the incident, for which many jets and helicopters were deployed, the Zionist military knows nothing about the drone; hence, the scenario is very worrying had dozens of same drones been launched at the same time towards the occupation entity.

    صفعة جديدة للعدوّ: طائرات المقاومة تخترق سماء فلسطين وتعود بأمان

    المقاومة تتحدّى: تحليق آمن فوق فلسطين

    السبت 19 شباط 2022


    شرحت المقاومة الإسلامية، بالعمل المباشر، ما أعلنه الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصر الله قبل يومين عن قدرات المقاومة في ما يتعلّق بالمسيّرات، وأقدمت على خطوة هي الأولى من نوعها منذ سنوات، تمثّلت في إرسال طائرة مسيّرة متطورة من نوع «حسان» في رحلة استطلاع داخل فلسطين المحتلة، جالت فيها على طول 70 كلم فوق المنطقة الشمالية وعادت الى قواعدها بسلام.

    طوال نهار أمس، كان العدوّ منشغلاً في الحديث عن فشل منظومته العسكرية والتقنية في إسقاط الطائرة أو السيطرة عليها، لكن، بعد وقت قصير من صدور البيان الرسمي عن المقاومة حول العملية، بادر العدو الى إرسال طائرات حربية


    في طلعة ترهيب فوق بيروت والضاحية الجنوبية، كرد على العملية وفي محاولة التعويض عن الفشل العملاني.
    وكشفت ردود فعل العدو، الإعلامية والشعبية، عن إدراك بأنّ ما جرى يتجاوز عملية تحليق تقليدية لطائرة استطلاع، ويجري التعامل مع الحدث على أنه «عمل تأسيسي» يحمل في طيّاته رسائل متنوعة، تعكس القدرة والردع، وأن حزب الله قرر الارتقاء في التعبير عنها من موقف سياسي الى خطوة عملياتية نفذها سلاح الجو التابع للمقاومة الإسلامية.

    يشار الى أن المقاومة أطلقت اسم «حسان» على الطائرة، تيمّناً باسم الشهيد حسان اللقيس المسؤول السابق عن السلاح المسيّر في المقاومة الذي اغتالته وحدة كوماندوس إسرائيلية في الضاحية منتصف ليل الرابع من كانون الأول عام 2013. ويبدو أن الطائرة من جيل متطور من الصناعات التي تقوم بها المقاومة في لبنان. وقد عمل الشهيد اللقيس لعقدين على الأقل في تطوير البرامج التقنية واستقدام التكنولوجيا التي تستخدم في هذا النوع من الأسلحة الى جانب أسلحة أخرى.

    نجاح مهمة الطائرة في استطلاع أهداف داخل فلسطين المحتلة وعودتها سالمة، أحدث إرباكاً لدى أجهزة الجيش وفي المستويَين السياسي والإعلامي في إسرائيل. وانعكس ذلك على طريقة التعاطي مع الحدث. فتعددت بيانات الجيش الذي بدا لوهلة كما لو أنه لم يكن يعلم بداية ماذا يحصل. إذ أشار في بيانه الأول الى تفعيل منظومة القبة الحديدية واستدعاء طائرات ومروحيات مقاتلة، لكنه لم يشر الى إسقاط طائرة حزب الله. ثم عاد وأكد أنه فقد أثرها، ليعترف في بيان ثالث بفشله في اعتراضها.

    ويكشف استدعاء طائرات سلاح الجو والمروحيات بعد تفعيل منظومة القبة الحديدية، أنه جرت محاولات متعددة الأساليب ومتنوعة الأدوات وبوتيرة متتالية لإسقاط الطائرة باءت جميعها بالفشل، الأمر الذي يكشف عن مستوى تطور الطائرة التي يبدو أن حزب الله أراد إفهام مؤسسة القرار في كيان العدو قدرته على اختراق كل التكنولوجيا التي يمتلكها، رغم التطوير الذي أدخله على منظوماته ورغم أنه في ذروة جهوزيته. وتؤكد تقارير إعلامية أنه على وقع أصداء الحدث وتداعياته، سيشكل جيش العدو لجنة تحقيق تهدف الى فهم ما جرى.

    الإرباك الذي أظهرته بيانات الجيش انعكس في وسائل الإعلام، فنقلت روايات متضاربة حول عدد الطائرات التي اخترقت الأجواء الفلسطينية، وما إن كان قد تم اعتراضها. ولم يكن واضحاً لدى وسائل إعلام العدو في البداية ما إن كانت المسيّرة مسلحة أو أنها استطلاعية فقط. لكن المعطى الإضافي الذي يفتح مروحة من الأسئلة التي لا إجابة عنها حتى الآن، أنه في حال عدم رصد الطائرات عبر أجهزة الرادار يعني ذلك أن حزب الله قادر على اختراق منظومات الدفاع الجوي بدون أن تكتشفها. وفي حال رصد الطائرة بداية ــــ بحسب جيش العدو ــــ كيف اختفت عن راداراته ولماذا، وما هي الرسائل التكنولوجية لذلك؟ وفي كل الأحوال، الحقيقة الدامغة أن العدو لم ينجح في إسقاط الطائرة التي حلّقت على مسافة عشرات الكيلومترات وعادت الى قواعدها بسلام!

    على المستوى الإعلامي، قال معلّق الشؤون العسكرية في القناة 13، أور هيلر، إن ما جرى يشكل فشلاً كبيراً لمنظومة القبة الحديدية في الشمال، ويفرض الكثير من الأسئلة الصعبة. بالتوازي، سلّط موقع «واللا» على البعد الاستراتيجي للحدث، فرأى أن «القصة الكبرى لإسرائيل وحزب الله أنها ليست طائرة مسيّرة أو محلّقة وإنما تتعلق بحرية العمل الجوي في لبنان»، محذراً من أنه إذا «لم يكن الجيش جازماً فسوف تتوسع التصدعات». أما القناة (12) في التلفزيون الإسرائيلي فقدّرت أن الطائرة هدفت الى جمع معلومات استخبارية. فيما لفتت قناة «كان» الى أن الطائرة وصلت على ما يبدو الى نقطة ما في شمال بحيرة طبريا، قبل أن تعود الى لبنان. وتوقف آخرون عند ما اعتبروه «أخطر أبعاد» الحدث، بالإشارة الى أنه كان بإمكان هذه الطائرة أن تكون انتحارية. لكن حزب الله لم يرد ذلك، ولو أراد لفعل. وتوقفت القناة (13) عند إعلان حزب الله المسؤولية عن العملية، رغم أنه كان في إمكانه تجاهلها، في إشارة الى أن هذا الإعلان ينطوي بدوره على رسالة محددة موجهة الى إسرائيل.باءت بالفشل كل المحاولات والأدوات والمنظومات التي استخدمها العدوّ لإسقاط الطائرة

    باءت بالفشل كل المحاولات والأدوات والمنظومات التي استخدمها العدوّ لإسقاط الطائرة

    من جانب آخر، عرض إعلاميون في كيان العدو للحدث بوصفه انتصاراً لحزب الله في معركة الوعي القائمة بين الطرفين، وخاصةً أنه جرى أيضاً استدعاء طائرات إف 15، وإطلاق صافرات الإنذار وتفعيل القبة الحديدية التي فشلت في إسقاطها، وهو ما أدى الى إحراج الجيش، وإلى انتشار حالة من الرعب بين سكان المستوطنات الشمالية الذين سارعوا للنزول الى الملاجئ، ما دفع الجيش الى محاولة طمأنة المستوطنين من خلال الإعلان عن العودة الى الحياة الروتينية.
    على أن العدو لجأ الى ردّ سريع تمثّل في إرسال طائرات حربية لتحلّق على علوّ منخفض فوق بيروت والضاحية بقصد إثارة الرعب، ولإيصال رسالة بأنّ سلاح الجو الإسرائيلي لا يخشى المعادلات التي يحاول حزب الله رسمها. لكن الأمر بدا في رأي الإسرائيليين أنفسهم تعبيراً عن التخبط في المستوى السياسي حول كيفية الرد. وقال معلقون إنه إذا اقتصر الرد على هذا المستوى يعني «أننا أمام معادلة إشكالية». فيما اعترف آخرون بأن انطلاق الطائرة من لبنان يعقّد المشهد أمام إسرائيل لجهة الرد الذي ينبغي أن تنتهجه، في إشارة الى القيود والمخاوف من أن أيّ تجاوز للحدود سيُقابل بردّ مضادّ من قبل حزب الله.

    Hezbollah Now 20 Times Stronger than It Used to Be on Eve of 2006 War: Israeli Analyst

     November 15, 2021

    Military correspondent of Israel’s Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, Yaakov Lappin, indicated that Hezbollah is now twenty times stronger than it used to be on the eve of 2006 war.

    It is important to recall that the Zionist army has intensified the military drills held in simulation of a war against Hezbollah.

    Meanwhile, the Israeli Air Force Commander, Amikam Nurkin, ended his first visit to the United Arab Emirates, where he was a guest at the Air Force Commanders Conference, and also visited the Dubai Airshow.

    The Zionist media said the visit to the UAE was part of the deepening of the connection and cooperation between ‘Israel’ and the United Arab Emirates – as part of the normalization deal signed about a year ago.

    The visit is a continuation of the visit of the UAE Commander of the United Arab Emirates, General Ibrahim Nasser Muhammad al-Alwi, in a “Blue Flag” exercise held about two weeks ago, the Israeli media added.

    It is worth noting that the Zionist media indicated that ‘Israel’ is exploiting such visits to the Gulf states to send warning messages to Iran.

    Sayyed Nasrallah: ‘Israel’ Holding More Military Drills for Fear of Hezbollah Invasion, Saudi Pressure on Lebanon Targets Resistance

    November 11, 2021

    Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah stressed on Thursday that the Resistance martyrs are an immense moral, spiritual, and emotional fortune in our cities, villages, families and tribes.

    Addressing Hezbollah ceremony on Martyr Day held separately in Beirut’s Dahiyeh, Southern Lebanon, Mount Lebanon and Bekaa, Sayyed Nasrallah called for reviewing the wills of the martyrs loaded with religious and moral lessons.

    Sayyed Nasrallah highlighted the noble stance of the martyrs’ families who repeatedly affirm their readiness to make more sacrifices, hailing their steadfastness in this regard.

    Hezbollah leader indicated that the martyrs’ blood has led to several important achievements, including the liberation of the prisoners and the occupied territories, ongoing deterrence of the Israeli aggression, prevention of the civil war in Lebanon, frustration of US schemes to control Lebanon completely, and preservation of the nation’s freedom and independence.

    Sayyed Nasrallah highlighted also how the Resistance managed to defeat the takfiri war on Syria, adding that the visit of the UAE foreign minister to Damascus represents an Arab acknowledgement of defeat in the terrorist campaign which some Arab regimes paid billions of dollars to fund it.

    ‘Israel’ afraid of Hezbollah Infantry

    His eminence maintained that, for the first time since 70 years, ‘Israel’ shows fear on Lebanon’s border, adding that the Zionist army is drilling periodically because it is concerned about Hezbollah military capabilities.

    The Zionists have added the term ‘Galilee’ to the confrontation formula, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who added that the Zionists are afraid of Hezbollah invasion of Galilee settlements.

    “Regardless of the liberated region’s area, the consequences of Hezbollah invasion will be strategic, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who added that the Israelis take the military preparations of the Islamic Resistance very seriously.

    Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that the Israelis are afraid of Hezbollah infantry and its ability to conquer Galilee and the entire northern area in occupied Palestine, adding that the Zionist enemy is also concerned about the Resistance precision-guided missiles.

    Neither the normalization deals, nor occupation sites, nor fences, nor fortresses would be able to protect ‘Israel’ from the Resistance fighters in Lebanon, Palestine and the entire region, Sayyed Nasrallah said.

    Sayyed Nasrallah cited a partial US influence in Lebanon, adding that the statesmen often obey the US orders.

    Regarding the demarcation of the marine borders with the Israeli occupation entity, Sayyed Nasrallah indicated that the Lebanese state must take a sovereign decision to confront the US pressures and insist on all the national rights, regardless of all the wicked US offers (Hof Line).

    Sayyed Nasrallah emphasized that Hezbollah is ready to defend every grain of sand and drop of water in order to protect the national sovereignty.

    Sayyed Nasrallah maintained that there are several instances of the US domination over Lebanon in several domains, adding, however, Hezbollah looks for a sovereign state that maintains equality among its citizens.

    One of the simplest forms of preserving the national sovereignty is the rejection of the foreign dictates and pressures, Sayyed Nasrallah said.

    Fabricated Diplomatic Crisis with Saudi

    Hezbollah stressed that the Saudi reaction to the remarks made by the information minister, George Kordahi, is extremely exaggerated, adding that the Saudis did not react at all to similar remarks made by US and UN officials.

    Sayyed Nasrallah asked, “Why has not Saudi Arabia that claims to be following the Islamic ruling system and its king alleges to be the Custodian of the two Holy Mosques, react to figures, communities and governments which abused and insulted the Prophet?

    “Were Kordahi’s remarks more abusive than the insults against Prophet Muhammad?”

    Minister Koradahi did not use offensive terms while criticizing Saudi Arabia who stirred up the trouble in order to confront Hezbollah, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who recalled the Saudi role in inciting the Israelis against Lebanon during 2006 War.

    Sayyed Nasrallah indicated that Saudi does not deal with Lebanon as a friend, citing the two instances of Iran and Syria which take positive attitudes toward Lebanon despite the involvement of some Lebanese parties in insulting them and conspiring against them.

    Sayyed Nasralah stressed that Hezbollah rejects the resignation of the information minister, adding that the Saudis will pressure the Lebanese authorities to make more concessions.

    Sayyed Nasrallah explained that when the former foreign minister, Charbel Wehbe, resigned under the Saudi pressures, the KSA authorities did not show any positive reaction.

    The ongoing Saudi pressure on Lebanon is part of the ongoing battle with the Resistance, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who noted that Riyadh wants its allies in Lebanon to engage in a fight against Hezbollah and ignite a civil war.

    Saudi War on Yemen

    Hezbollah Secretary General stressed that the Iranians did not ask the Saudis during their recent negotiations to contact Hezbollah in order to end the crisis in Yemen, adding that Riyadh was advised to hold negotiations with Ansarullah Movement.

    Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated that the end of the Yemeni crisis requires that Saudi halts the aggression and lift the blockade on Yemen, adding that the victories in Yemen were created by Yemeni leaders, brains, miracles and divine aids.

    Sayyed Nasrallah also underscored that the Yemeni army and popular committees victory in Marib will be resounding, adding that the Saudi aggression will have completely failed after a 7-year costly war.

    Hezbollah Reality in Lebanon

    Sayyed Nasrallah indicated that Hezbollah is the largest political party in Lebanon, but that its influence in the Lebanese institutions is smaller than that of the other parties.

    Sayyed Nasrallah refuted the claims about Hezbollah control of the Lebanese institutions by showing instances of the Party’s inability to change the official decision of the government, including the restoration of ties with Syria in order to sustain the economic cooperation in this regard, the approval of the Chinese, Russian and Iranian investments, and the recuse of the judicial investigator into Beirut Port blast as the Party sees he is politicizing the probe.

    Sayyed Nasrallah also wondered how Iran, accused of occupying Lebanon, could not dock a diesel ship at a Lebanese port.

    Tayouneh and Khaldeh Massacres

    Regarding Tayouneh massacre, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that its file is completely separated from that of the Beirut Port blast, denying any trade off in this context.

    Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that what is required is the disclosure of truth and restoration of justice in both files, adding that Hezbollah wikll continue following up the investigations into the massacre committed deliberately by the “Lebanese Forces” till the criminal get punished.

    Moreover, Sayyyed Nasrallah reaffirmed that criminals involved in Khaldeh massacre will be also punished, adding that Hezbollah will be then ready to hold any reconciliation in the town.

    As Hezbollah’s Military Might Grows, So Does ‘Israeli’ Fear

    As Hezbollah’s Military Might Grows, So Does ‘Israeli’ Fear

    By Staff

    ‘Israel’ Hayom published an analysis piece by Lilach Shoval, in which she considered that ‘Israel’s’ most severe security threat in 2021 and perhaps over the next several years is Lebanon.

    While the ‘Israeli’ military and Hezbollah have established mutual deterrence, officials in Tel Aviv estimate that the risk of an escalation is on the rise because tactical events could change the dynamics.

    Hezbollah has its own fighters and weapons and continues to strengthen its military capabilities, Shoval wrote.

    Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah has in recent years created a kind of blood-for-blood discourse, threatening to retaliate against every ‘Israeli’ attack in Lebanon. He has also vowed to retaliate if an attack attributed to the Zionist entity on Syrian soil inflicts harm to Hezbollah members in the country.

    Over the past 12 months, the Zionist military has grown increasingly concerned over a possible escalation because of repeated rocket launches from Lebanon, most recently during the 11-day ‘Israeli’ war on Gaza.

    The author went on to say that “Hezbollah has more than 70,000 rockets that have a variety of ranges. It also has tens of thousands of mortar shells. Some of the rockets can strike a target at an accuracy of several meters. All this is a source of great concern for the ‘Israeli’ military.”

    Additionally, the ‘Israeli’ military estimates that Hezbollah has about a hundred precision-guided munitions as well as the capability to produce more on an industrial scale. Zionist officials are worried that if Hezbollah’s efforts on this front are successful, the balance of power with the ‘Israeli’ would change dramatically.

    Another threat posed to the ‘Israeli’ occupation regime is Hezbollah’s drones, antitank missiles, cruise missiles, and of course, its elite Radwan Unit, which includes several thousand fighters who cut their teeth in the Syrian war, Shoval added.

    This accumulated experience has led to a perpetual change within the resistance group.

    In this context, the author claimed that Hezbollah is preparing for a surprise operation against the ‘Israeli’ regime, during which if a war were to break out, it would deploy its forces to infiltrate the occupied territory and take over outposts or towns close to the border, thereby disrupting the ‘Israeli’ military’s ground maneuver capabilities.

    Additionally, Hezbollah’s rockets pose a major challenge to the Iron Dome.

    Meanwhile, the author concluded that the Zionist military has to bolster the combat worthiness of its ground forces, which are currently, not in their best shape.
