Haaretz: Sayyed Nasrallah Not Wrong About Stretching “Israeli” Army to the Limit

Haaretz: Sayyed Nasrallah Not Wrong About Stretching “Israeli” Army to the Limit

By Staff, Haaretz

The high alert on the northern border has been in force for more than a month and a half. Under the flood of other news, it’s not the main thing on the mind of the “Israeli” public and media.

According to the “Israeli” news outlet Haaretz, Hezbollah has tried twice to avenge the martyrdom of a fighter martyred in July in an “Israeli” bombing attack at Damascus Airport.

The devastating explosion at the Beirut port on August 4 completely changed the agenda in Lebanon, the news outlet went on to say. But very quickly it became clear that it had no effect on the plans of Hezbollah leader His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, who is determined to kill an “Israeli” soldier before declaring a return to calm on the border.

Sayyed Nasrallah is trying to hold the rope at both ends, according to Haaretz. He denies the “Israeli” allegations about the foiling of attempted attacks, but is proud that the “Israeli” army is so tense waiting for Hezbollah’s response.

Haaretz added that the alert along the border has been long and nerve-racking, taking up the time of Military Intelligence as well, far beyond what “Israelis” might think. The “Israeli” army is continuing to call up reservist officers to reinforce command posts, to deploy relatively large forces in the entity’s north and to keep its distance from the fence. It doesn’t want to provide Hezbollah with a target for an operation.

The containment policy was decided at the very top, by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, War Minister Benny Gantz and army chief Aviv Kochavi, the news outlet explained.

For years, the “Israeli” entity has been waging a war between the wars in the north alleging that one of its goals is to prevent the transfer of advanced weapons from Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon. If Sayyed Nasrallah establishes a new balance of threats, he can also influence moves attributed to the “Israeli” entity in Syria, according to the “Israeli” daily.

Based on the report by Haaretz, under Sayyed Nasrallah’s formula of deterrence, for every Lebanese death in an “Israeli” attack, even if it occurs in Syria, Hezbollah will mount a response. His Eminence’s temptation lies in stretching the equation to force the entity to think three times before every attack in Syria.

Furthermore, Netanyahu likes to boast about the close strategic and military cooperation with the Trump administration. Several times he has praised Trump for his decision in January to assassinate General Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ Quds Force.

The United States is indeed pursuing an aggressive line against Tehran while gradually stepping up the sanctions pressure. But, like the “Israeli” entity, the Americans have to protect themselves against a possible response to the offensive moves they’ve made.

ماذا تعني فرضيّة معركة بين حربين؟

ناصر قنديل

يعود استخدام مصطلح معركة بين حربين لستينيات القرن الماضي والأزمة التي نشبت بين واشنطن وموسكو حول كوبا، وعرفت بأزمة خليج الخنازير، عندما عزمت واشنطن على غزو شبه الجزيرة الكوبية، وعزمت موسكو على نشر صواريخ نووية على أراضيها، وكاد التصادم بين المشاريع يؤدي إلى الانفجار، فخرج معارضو التصعيد في واشنطن يحذرون من حرب عالمية ثالثة، وكان جواب دعاة التصعيد أنها لن تكون حرباً عالمية بل ستكون «معركة بين حربين»، والمقصود أنها معركة وليست مجرد إطلاق نار بسيط، لكنها لن تتحوّل إلى حرب، بل هي معركة بين حرب وقعت هي الحرب العالمية الثانية وحرب لم تقع هي الحرب العالمية الثالثة، وأن هذه المعركة سترسم موازين القوى مجدداً، حتى لو شهدت استخداما للسلاح النووي فسيكون استخداماً تكتيكياً موضعياً، يمنع نشوب الحرب العالمية الثالثة. وفي النهاية فازت المخاوف من الإنزلاق للحرب على تسويق فرضية المعركة، وتمت تسوية النزاع بتراجع متوازن، فتخلت واشنطن عن غزو كوبا وتعهدت بالامتناع، وتخلت موسكو عن نشر صواريخها النووية في كوبا وتعهدت بالامتناع.

استعاد منظرو الحرب في كيان الاحتلال نظرية المعركة بين حربين في توصيف ما يقوم به جيش الاحتلال من عمليات حربية في سورية، لتكبير حجرهم وتظهير جيشهم بمقدرات استراتيجية ليست عنده، فوصفوا الغارات بأنها جزء من معركة بين حربين، حرب تموز 2006، وحرب مقبلة، والتوصيف فيه الكثير من المبالغة، فالمعركة لم تقع بعد، وما يجري هو ضربات متفرقة تتفادى الحرب والمعركة في آن واحد، وشرط المعركة بين حربين غير متوافر هنا، في عمليات جيش الاحتلال، وهو جاهزية الفريقين المتقابلين للحرب وعزمهما على المضي قدماً، ونجاح كل منهما بقوة الردع التي يملكها بفرض خوض الحرب بضوابط وسقوف تجعلها معركة بين حربين، وتعيد ترسيم التوازنات، وبناء معادلات القوة. أما عمليات جيش الاحتلال في سورية، فهي تتراوح بين ضربات تكتيكية لتأخير جهوزية المقاومة في بناء قدراتها الرادعة وخصوصاً في مجال الصواريخ الدقيقة وتعترف بالعجز عن منع المقاومة من ذلك، لأنها تخشى الحرب والمعركة معاً، ورسائل سياسية تتصل بقواعد الاشتباك ومشاريع تعديلها من طرفي المواجهة، صعوداً وهبوطاً. وهي هنا بالتأكيد أقل من حرب ومعركة، أو رسائل إعلامية لداخل الكيان أو للجماعات المناوئة للدولة السورية في لحظات تعرّضها للهجوم لرفع معنوياتها، وهذه لا تستحق إدراجها بمنزلة المعركة بين حربين. فهل يمكن أن تتوافر الآن شروط المعركة بين حربين؟

المؤشرات التي تتيح مثل هذا الاستنتاج، تبدأ من حجم الاحتباس السياسي في العلاقات بين محورين متقابلين، محور تقوده واشنطن ومحور تقوده طهران في كل ملفات النزاع، ويضاف إليها التوقيت الحساس المرتبط بحجم الضائقة الاقتصادية في واشنطن بسبب الركود والإقفال الاقتصادي، وفي طهران بسبب العقوبات والحصار، وتحول الهم الاقتصادي مع هاجس مواجهة كورونا هموماً تتقدم الهموم السياسية، وفوقهما التوقيت السياسي المرتبط باقتراب الانتخابات الرئاسية الأميركية، وفيما تشكل الضغوط الأميركية على الجبهتين اللبنانية والسورية محاولة لتفاوض غير مباشر على شروط للانسحاب الأميركي مقابل ضمانات لأمن الكيان ومصالحه، بانسحاب إيران وقوى المقاومة من سورية، يصير للتجاذب الدائر وظيفة ذات وزن استراتيجي لا يمكن التساهل بمساراته ومعانيه، بينما كيان الاحتلال في ظرف صعب يجعله عاجزاً عن خوض حرب، لكنه عاجز عن تلقي ضربة، ومحور المقاومة بالمقابل عاجز عن المبادرة لحرب، وعاجز عن قبول تعديل قواعد الاشتباك لتحمل تبعات ضربة دون رد، ومع ارتفاع لهجة التهديد على لسان رئيس حكومة الاحتلال بالردّ على أي ردّ تقوم به المقاومة ينكشف عجز الكيان عن تحمّل ضربة، وينفتح احتمال تحوّل رد المقاومة على الغارة التي استهدفت محيط مطار دمشق واستشهد بنتيجتها أحد مجاهدي المقاومة، إلى بوابة لتصعيد يمكن أن يشكل فرصة لمعركة بين حربين، بما تعنيه من الامتناع عن الدخول في مواجهة مفتوحة شاملة، والسعي لاختبار المقدرات المتقابلة أملاً برسم معادلات وتوازنات جديدة.

Sayyed Nasrallah: We Are Preparing for the Great War When ‘Israel’ Will Be Wiped off the Map

Sara Taha Moughnieh

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Nasrallah saluted the Lebanese people on the anniversary of Resistance and Liberation in an interview to Al-Nour radio station.

His eminence assured that the spirit of the resistance fighters that led to these victories, which martyred resistance leader Hajj Imad Moughnieh spoke about saying “What fights in us is our spirit”, is still as strong and perseverant as before.

He assured that the resistance is developing on the military and armory levels but the essential tool in victory is the faithful, strong, authentic spirit of the resistance fighters and their families, despite all attempts to disfigure its identity.

Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that the Israelis still remember the quote “weaker than the spider web” not because of the significance of its words but because of the significance of the timing and location it was stated in, which was the field of Bint Jbeil, adding that “in July war they tried to reach this spot to make a speech and say that Israel is stronger than steel, but they failed”.

His eminence noted that the strength point of Lebanon is the power of deterrence it had attained, and this is a strength because Lebanon was never the attacker, it was always being attacked.

Sayyed Nasrallah assured that the resistance saw the liberation of 2000 happening since 1983, and this was relevant in the speeches of Sayyed Abbas (Al-Moussawi) and Sheikh Ragheb Harb.

In this context, Hezbollah SG indicated that “when Ehud Barack was asked about the reason of invading Lebanon – I say this as 20 years have passed on victory because some people are still reading the developments wrong – he put two reasons. The first was to send the Palestinian resistance out of Lebanon to Jordan to topple the regime and establish an alternative state for the Palestinians there, and second was to bring the Jmayyel Family to presidency so that Lebanon becomes in the Israeli axis.”

Sayyed Nasrallah in the interview with journalist Buthaina Olleik.

“Israel does not have real allies, it only sees its benefits. It is ready to collaborate against anyone for the sake of achieving its benefits. Israel has collaborated against Jordan since 1982 and the alternative state project there is ongoing since then,” he added, pointing out that “the fall of the political project in Lebanon let them focus their strength on the security line.”

Sayyed Nasrallah continued that “the security line alone was not enough for the Israelis to reach their goal which was to protect the settlements, and this is what the resistance was working on.”

“Two years before withdrawing completely, the Israelis handed the security lines and locations to Lahad Army. It planned to withdraw towards the borders as the confrontations continue between the resistance and Lahad Army, hence, the battle becomes a civil one that takes a sectarian form. However, the resistance continued its operations against Lahad Army until the latter finally surrendered leading to the complete Israeli withdrawal from the region and successfully avoiding any civil war back then,” he added.

When asked about the resistance’s vision for Israel in 2035, his eminence assured that Israel will not last as it is a strange body that does not resemble this region, and remembered a quote by Sayyed Moussa Al-Sadr in which he said that Israel was not a Jewish or a religious state but an apartheid state that sees itself superior on everyone as its people are the sons of Israel. It was established on terror and murder.

In this context, his eminence stressed that Israel acknowledges that it is not the same invincible power that was before 2000, not just in Lebanon but also in Gaza. He further stressed that Israel is completely reliant on the US while we see the latter’s position in the region deteriorating due to the policies it is following.

“The Image of the Israelis packing their stuff and getting on planes and ships is in front of my eyes,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

Responding to a question on the resistance audience, his eminence assured that “there was never national unity around the resistance in order to say that it once had a wide audience that it had lost. Even in year 2000, the internal situation was not better than today. Some people used to consider that the resistance was not national and it was related to Syria and Iran.”

On the US presence in the region, Hezbollah SG noted that it was an evidence on the development of the resistance axis as it reveals the inability of Israel and its supporting regimes to protect their benefits.

“All the developments in the region are not for the benefit of Israel and there is a high level of balance between the two parts… The resistance’s strength today in occupied Palestine is a strategic power in the resistance axis.”

As his eminence reiterated that the resistance’s point of strength is its deterrence power, he indicated that “Israel is aware that any attack on Lebanon will not pass without a response, adding that the latest Israeli attack on a car that had members of Hezbollah in it in the Syrian territories without causing casualties was not an Israeli error.

“Israel intended not to hurt the men in the car because it was aware that the equation today is that there will be a response on any assassination.”

In this context, his eminence warned that “the level of patience and tolerance of the Syrian leadership has a limit, and the enemy could make a stupid act that might cause the Syrian leadership to lose its patience and might lead to a war.”

In parallel, he assured that the Israelis intervened in Syria after they realized that the opposition groups they supported there were defeated.

Concerning the UNIFIL forces in Lebanon, Sayyed Nasrallah stated that “there is an Israeli demand backed by the US to the Global Community to increase the number of UNIFIL forces. For us, increasing or decreasing the number of forces does not matter… If there was a change in the tasks of the UNIFIL forces we might demand that the forces be relocated on the other side of the borders… The time in which Lebanon was perceived as the weak part is gone and Israel can no longer impose its conditions on it.”

Internally, Sayyed Nasrallah said that in a great speech
Sayyed Moussa Al-Sadr delivered once he said that the politicians in Lebanon were ready to drag the country toward a civil war in order to  preserve their position. He said Lebanese politicians are heartless and are ready to kill up to 10,000 people for this goal.

In this context, his eminence asserted that Hezbollah is very sensitive about a civil war due to its faith and commitment, not because it has a “phobia” from it as claimed. We don’t want a civil war and we refuse to take the government even if offered. We don’t want to control the country and as Imam Al-Sadr said “a revolution in Lebanon, if it wasn’t over-passing religions it will not get anywhere.”.

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that any disagreement in Lebanon is diverted into a sectarian disagreement which reassures the importance of setting limits on any internal transformation so that the enemy does not take advantage of the situation.

He emphasized that the Lebanese Judiciary must be the reference in fighting corruption calling on everyone who has any corruption file against any Hezbollah political official to refer to the judiciary authority.

“I have said before that the battle against corruption is harder than the battle against Israel and it needs time. First we must remove the mines not step on them in order to open the roads.”

Sayyed Nasrallah indicated that when Ehud Barack was asked about methods to destroy Hezbollah, he considered that dragging Hezbollah into a civil war and making people and its supporting environment revolt against it would destroy it.

“Thus, this is a sensitive issue as the resistance is on the top of the enemy’s list of targets, and any new given must be studied very well.”

On the economic level, Sayyed Nasrallah considered that “we can get out of this economic crisis but it needs a political decision,” adding that “if Hezbollah revealed its economic plan it will be fought immediately on both internal and external levels”.

As he emphasized the importance of cooperating with the Syrians on the industrial and agricultural levels, he noted that some parts refuse this fearing that this would damage the relations with the US.

“America wants to humiliate Lebanon and impose its conditions on it.”

In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah addressed the Lebanese people saying: “The solution for the economic crisis is to abandon US satisfaction and head east”.

“Some parts are obstructing deals with China due to their fears from the US… China can solve the electricity problem with less cost than Germany, but this needs a political decision. If the current government was a Hezbollah government it would’ve referred to Chine. This is the biggest evidence that this is an independent government that is considering the views of all the parties.”

Concerning the Banking crisis, his eminence said “we demanded protecting all the savings. It is our duty to shout out but it is the government and official sides’ duty to take action. Hezbollah has no interest in changing the banking system or any other system in Lebanon.”

On Hezbollah’s relation with its allies, Sayyed Nasrallah stated that “we are solving problems between our allies and solving our problems with our allies by shutting them down… Our allies and us are not one body, we are two bodies so it is normal to have different views but we don’t allow this to break any alignment.”

His eminence considered that social media is playing a negative role by creating problems that do not exist, and assured that “we have to co-live with social media and must turn its threat into an opportunity through guidance and addressing.”

On the regional level, Sayyed Nasrallah assured that the US withdrawal from the region will be on all political, cultural, and military levels.

He considered that the US is on its way to pack and leave the region due to several reasons including the public desire in Iraq, their withdrawal from Afghanistan, their identification as “occupation forces” in Syria, the failed war on Yemen, the unsuccessful “deal of the century” which was signed by only one part of the agreement, and the developments in general.

Sayyed Nasrallah ruled out any war between the US and Iran or between Israel and Lebanon “unless the latter decided to make a stupid act”, he said. He finally noted that Israel might cease to exist if the circumstances that it emerged on changed.

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.

Hamas Warns: “We Won’t Allow Zionist Entity to Pick Time, Place of Each Clash”

Hamas spokesperson Fawzi Barhum said on Saturday that the Zionist entity will bear “the results of its ongoing aggression faced with the opposition and the Palestinian people.”

“We won’t allow Israel to pick the time and place of each clash,” he added, Walla reported.

Barhoum further stated that a joint command of all Gaza-based factions was established to jointly decide how to respond in the future to Israeli attacks.

Occupation warplanes struck Hamas posts during Saturday night, two days after fragile ceasefire went into force following a round of fighting between the occupation army and Islamic Jihad group, another resistance movement in the Gaza strip.

The latest escalation began early on Tuesday (November 12) with Israeli targeted assassination of Bahaa Abu al-Ata, a top commander of Islamic Jihad.

That 42-year-old’s killing in a raid targeting his house triggered retaliatory rocket fire from Islamic Jihad at the occupied territories.

Palestinian Resistance Retaliates after ‘Israeli’ Assassination of Military Commander, Civilians in Gaza

Palestinian Resistance Retaliates after ‘Israeli’ Assassination of Military Commander, Civilians in Gaza

By Staff

Palestinian resistance groups rained down retaliatory rockets on the occupied territories after the ‘Israeli’ enemy’s assassination of senior Palestinian resistance commander Bahaa Abu al-Atta and scores of civilians.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian resistance movements continue retaliation by launching missiles towards towns in the occupied territories.

At least 10 Palestinian people were martyred as a result of the continued ‘Israeli’ aggression against Gaza, after 3 others were martyred in an ‘Israeli’ airstrike that targeted the al-Atatera region in Bait Lahya, north of Gaza Strip.

The Gaza Health Ministry announced earlier on Tuesday evening that two Palestinians were martyred in an ‘Israeli’ airstrike that targeted an agricultural land in Bait Hanoun north of the Strip.

The military wing of the Islamic Jihad Movement, al-Quds Brigade, announced four of its fighters martyred.

The occupation warplanes, meanwhile, continue bombing sites belonging to the Palestinian resistance factions and different agricultural areas in Gaza.

“Israel” has assassinated a senior commander for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement in an airstrike in the besieged Gaza Strip, sparking a barrage of retaliatory rocket fire from the besieged enclave into the occupied territories.

In a statement, the Islamic Jihad’s military wing, al-Quds Brigades, confirmed the martyrdom of its commander, Baha Abu al-Ata, 42, in an “Israeli” aerial assault on his Gaza home early on Tuesday, adding that the group was on “maximum alert.”

It further said Ata’s wife had also been martyred during the “Israeli” air raid.

Additionally, the resistance group stressed that its commander was heroically defending the Palestinian land against conspiracies prior to his martyrdom.

It also vowed to continue in the footsteps of its assassinated commander in order to “complete the process of liberation of the entire beloved Palestine. Our response will inevitably shock the Zionist entity.”

Meanwhile, the “Israeli” army confirmed in a statement its strike against a building where Ata was present in Gaza’s Shejaiya area.

The operation, it added, had been recommended by the “Israeli” Chief of Staff and Shin Bet domestic security service, and approved by the entity’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

It also blamed Ata for recent rocket, drone and sniper attacks against “Israel”, as well as attempted infiltration into the occupied territories, claiming that he was planning “imminent” attacks.

“Abu al-Ata was responsible for most of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s activity in the Gaza Strip and was a ticking bomb,” the “Israeli” army said.

Separately, the Hamas resistance movement said the “Israeli” entity “bears full responsibility for all consequences of this escalation” and pledged that al-Ata’s death “will not go unpunished.”

Shortly after the “Israeli” strike, Palestinians launched a salvo of rockets into the occupied territories, setting off sirens as far as Ashdod.

The “Israeli” army said Gaza-based Palestinian resistance fighters had pounded the occupied-territories with “substantial” rocket fire Tuesday.

“There is substantial fire,” army spokesman Jonathan Conricus told journalists in a conference call. “We are preparing for a number of days of fighting.”

The assassination is likely to fuel tensions between Tel Aviv and Gaza, which has been under a crippling siege by the “Israeli” entity since 2007 and witnessed three wars since 2008.

Gaza has also witnessed deadly tensions since March 30, 2018 which marked the start of the Great March of Return protests, with participants demanding the right to return for the Palestinians driven out of their homeland.

«Israeli» Attack Hits Home of Islamic Jihad Official in Damascus, Kills Two

By Staff, Agencies

A strike on a Damascus home belonging to the Islamic Jihad official has martyred the man’s son, in what appears to be part of an “Israeli” attack to assassinate leaders of the Palestinian resistance group in Gaza and Syria.

The Islamic Jihad issued a statement on Tuesday confirming the attack, identifying the official as Akram al-Ajouri.

Two civilians were martyred and ten others were injured due to the hostile targeting of a residential building near the Lebanese Embassy in Mezza area in Damascus that is home to Damascus University and several diplomatic missions, Syrian state media SANA reported.

Syrian authorities said a building in the capital of Damascus was bombed early Tuesday in a deadly attack, as its air defenses fired at a “hostile target.”

According to the SANA state news network, Syrian air defenses were fired at a “hostile target” over Daraya, a suburb south of Damascus.

The Islamic Jihad did not immediately accuse anyone of carrying out the strike, although the incident came less than an hour after the “Israeli” entity announced it had assassinated a top commander of the resistance group in besieged Gaza Strip.

It was not immediately known if there was any link between the incidents.

Relatedly, Syrian Interior Minister, Maj. Gen. Mohammad Khalid Al-Rahmoun, during his visit to the targeted site, said that the residential building was targeted by several missiles, claiming the lives of a number of civilians and wounding others.

The SANA report added that the building was badly damaged and the windows of nearby buildings and a number of cars were shattered.

It further mentioned that the Syrian Arab Army at dawn on Tuesday intercepted a hostile target over Darayya in Damascus.

الاحتلال الإسرائيلي يغتال القيادي في سرايا القدس بهاء أبو عطا

الميادين نت

نعت سرايا القدس الجناح العسكري لحركة الجهاد الإسلامي أحد أبرز قياداتها الشهيد بهاء سليم أبو العطا، الذي أعلن جيش الاحتلال الإسرائيلي عن استهداف مبنى في غزة كان الشهيد متواجد فيه، بعملية مشتركة بين الجيش والأمن العام.

وتوعدت سرايا القدس برد قادم يزلزل الكيان الصهيوني، كما توعدت بالعمل على استكمال مسيرة تحرير كامل فلسطين.

وقالت لجان المقاومة إن العدو ارتكب حماقة كبيرة باقدامه على ارتكاب هذه الجريمة، مؤكدة أن الاحتلال سيدفع ثمن جرائمه المستمرة بحق الشعب الفلسطيني، والمقاومة ستثأر لدماء الشهيد البطل بهاء أبو العطا.

وكشفت وسائل إعلام إسرائيلية أن عملية الاغتيال أوصى بها رئيس الأركان ورئيس الشاباك، وأقرها رئيس الحكومة ووزير الأمن.

وأفاد مراسل الميادين عن اطلاق عدة صليات ورشقات من الصواريخ من قطاع غزة باتجاه المستوطنات الإسرائيلية، وقصف إسرائيلي مضاد استهدف شمال مدينة غزة.

وأعلن رئيس لجنة تنسيق إدخال البضائع إلى غزة أن الجانب الإسرائيلي أغلق معبر كرم أبو سالم التجاري من اليوم وحتى إشعار آخر، في حين صدرت تعليمات من مجلس اشكول وبلدية سديروت عن توقع رد فلسطيني بعد عملية الجيش الإسرائيلي، وتوجيهات للبقاء قرب الأماكن المحصنة، وتعطيل الدراسة والزراعة في الأماكن القريبة من القطاع، على أن تسري هذه التوجيهات منذ السادسة من صباح اليوم لغاية صباح الغد.

وأكدت وسائل إعلام إسرائيلية أن الدراسة لن تقام في مبان خفيفة غير محصنة اليوم في كل مستوطنات الجنوب والوسط وتل أبيب، بالإضافة إلى توقف حركة القطارات بين عسقلان وبئر السبع نتيجة الأوضاع المستجدة في محيط غزة

وشهدت مدينة غزة قصفاً إسرائيلياً، قبيل تنفيذ عملية اغتيال الشهيد أبو عطا، وأعلنت وزراة الصحة الفلسطينة عن استشهاد مواطن ومواطنة وإصابة 2 آخرين بجراح مختلفة شرق حي الشجاعية.

The Israeli occupation assassinates the leader in Al – Quds Brigades Bahaa Abu Atta

The Al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad movement, announced killing one of its most prominent leaders in Gaza, the martyr Bahaa Salim Abu al-Atta, the Zionist entity, targetd a building in Gaza where the martyr was present, in a joint operation between the army and public security.

The Al-Quds Brigades have vowed to respond to the zionist entity’s defeat, and it has vowed to work to complete the process of the liberation of the whole of Palestine.

The resistance committees said that the enemy committed a great folly by committing this crime, stressing that the occupation will pay the price for its continuing crimes against the Palestinian people, and the resistance will avenge the blood of the heroic martyr Bahaa Abu Alat.

Israeli media revealed that the assassination was recommended by the chief of staff and the head of the Shabak, and approved by the prime minister and the minister of security.

Al-Mayadeen correspondent reported that several prayers and rocket attacks were fired from the Gaza Strip toward israeli settlements and israeli counter-artillery shelling north of Gaza City.

The chairman of the Coordination Committee for the Introduction of Goods into Gaza announced that the Israeli side had closed the Karam Abu Salem commercial crossing from today until further notice, while instructions had been issued by the Ashkol Council and the Municipality of Sderot to expect a Palestinian response after the Israeli army operation, and directives to stay near fortified areas, and to disrupt study and agriculture in places near the Gaza Strip, provided that these directives would apply from 6 a.m. to tomorrow morning.

Israeli media confirmed that the study will not be held in light, non-fortified buildings today in all settlements in the south, central and Tel Aviv, in addition to the suspension of train traffic between Ashkelon and Beersheba as a result of the new conditions in the gaza area.

Gaza City witnessed Israeli shelling, just before the assassination of martyr Abu Atta, and the Palestinian Ministry of Health announced the death of one citizen and the injury of 2 others to the east of The Shujaiyaneigh borhood.

Israel’s Last War

 

Israel last days.jpg

by Gilad Atzmon

In my 2011 book, The Wandering Who, I elaborated on the possible disastrous scenario in which Israel is the nucleus of a global escalation over Iran’s emerging nuclear capabilities. I concluded that Israel’s PRE Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PRE-TSS) would be central to such a development.

“The Jewish state and the Jewish discourse in general are completely foreign to the notion of temporality. Israel is blinded to the consequences of its actions, it only thinks of its actions in terms of short-term pragmatism. Instead of temporality, Israel thinks in terms of an extended present.”

In  2011 Israel was still confident in its military might, certain that with the help of America or at least its support, it could deliver a mortal military blow to Iran. But this confidence has diminished, replaced by an existential anxiety that might well be warranted. For the last few months, Israeli military analysts have had to come to terms with Iran’s spectacular strategic and technological abilities. The recent attack on a Saudi oil facility delivered a clear message to the world, and in particular to Israel, that Iran is far ahead of Israel and the West. The sanctions were counter effective: Iran independently developed its own technology.

Former Israeli ambassador to the US, and prolific historian, Michael Oren, repeated my 2011 predictions this week in the Atlantic and described a horrific scenario for the next, and likely last, Israeli conflict.

Oren understands that a minor Israeli miscalculation could lead to total war, one in which missiles and drones of all types would rain down on Israel, overwhelm its defences and leave Israeli cities, its economy and its security in ruins.

Oren gives a detailed account of how a conflict between Israel and Iran could rapidly descend into a massive “conflagration” that would devastate Israel as well as its neighbours.

In Israel, the term “The War Between the Wars,”  refers to the targeted covert inter-war campaign waged by the Jewish State with the purpose of postponing, while still preparing for, the next confrontation, presumably with Iran. In the last few years Israel has carried out hundreds of  ‘war between the wars’ strikes against Iran-linked targets in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq. Oren speculates that a single miscalculation could easily lead to retaliation by Iran. “Israel is girding for the worst and acting on the assumption that fighting could break out at any time. And it’s not hard to imagine how it might arrive. The conflagration, like so many in the Middle East, could be ignited by a single spark.”

Until now, Iran has restrained itself despite constant aggression from Israel, but this could easily change.

“The result could be a counterstrike by Iran, using cruise missiles that penetrate Israel’s air defenses and smash into targets like the Kiryah, Tel Aviv’s equivalent of the Pentagon. Israel would retaliate massively against Hezbollah’s headquarters in Beirut as well as dozens of its emplacements along the Lebanese border. And then, after a day of large-scale exchanges, the real war would begin…”

Oren predicts that rockets would  “rain on Israel” at a rate as high as 4,000 a day.  The Iron Dome system would be overwhelmed by the vast simultaneous attacks against civilian and military targets throughout the country. And, as if this weren’t devastating enough, Israel is totally unprepared to deal with precision-guided missiles that can accurately hit targets all across Israel from 1000 miles away.

Ben Gurion International Airport would be shut down and air traffic over Israel closed. The same could happen to Israel’s ports. Israelis that would seek refuge in far away lands would have to swim to safety

In this scenario, Palestinians and Lebanese militias might join the conflagration and attack Jewish border communities on the ground while long-range missiles from Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Iran land. Before long, Israel’s economy would cease to function, electrical grids severed  and damaged factories and refineries would spew toxic chemicals into the air.

In the Shoah scenario Oren describes,

“Millions of Israelis would huddle in bomb shelters. Hundreds of thousands would be evacuated from the border areas as terrorists attempt to infiltrate them. Restaurants and hotels would empty, along with the offices of the high-tech companies of the start-up nation. The hospitals, many of them resorting to underground facilities, would quickly be overwhelmed, even before the skies darken with the toxic fumes of blazing chemical factories and oil refineries.”

Oren predicts that Israel’s harsh response to attack, including a violent put down of likely West Bank and Gaza protests, would result in large scale civilian casualties and draw charges of war crimes.

As Oren states, he did not invent this prediction, it is one of the similar scenarios anticipated by Israeli military and government officials.

If such events occur, the US will be vital to the survival of the Jewish State by providing munitions, diplomatic, political, and legal support, and after the war, in negotiating truces, withdrawals, prisoner exchanges and presumably ‘peace agreements.’  However, the US under the Trump administration is somewhat unpredictable, especially in light of the current impeachment proceedings against Trump.

In 1973 the US helped save Israel by providing its military with the necessary munitions.  Will the US do so again? Do the Americans have the weapons capability to counter Iran’s ballistics, precision missiles and drones?  More crucially, what kind of support could America provide that would lift the spirits of humiliated and exhausted Israelis after they emerge from underground shelters having enduring four weeks without electricity or food and see their cities completely shattered?

This leads us to the essential issue. Zionism vowed to emancipate the Jews from their destiny by liberating the Jews from themselves. It vowed to bring an end to Jewish self-destruction by creating a Jewish safe haven. How is it that just seven decades after the founding of the Jewish state, the people who have suffered throughout their history have once again managed to create the potential for their own disaster?

In The Wandering Who I provide a possible answer: “Grasping the notion of temporality is the ability to accept that the past is shaped and revised in the light of a search for meaning. History, and historical thinking, are the capacity to rethink the past and the future.” Accordingly, revisionism is the true essence of historical thinking. It turns the past into a moral message, it turns the moral into an ethical act.  Sadly this is exactly where the Jewish State is severely lacking. Despite the Zionist promise to introduce introspection, morality and universal thinking to the emerging Hebrew culture,  the Jewish State has failed to break away from the Jewish past because it doesn’t really grasp the notion of the ‘past’ as a dynamic elastic ethical substance.

إنذار أخير للإمارات: الانسحاب أو العقاب المؤلم

الفشل المستمر: مصدر الطائرات التي ضربت «أرامكو» غير محدد

في حال لم تستجب السعودية للمبادرة اليمنية ستتكرر هذه العملية وضد أهداف اخرى (أ ف ب )

الفشل المستمر: مصدر الطائرات التي ضربت «أرامكو» غير محدد

سياسة ابراهيم الأمين

الإثنين 23 أيلول 2019

ليس أمراً عابراً أو تفصيلاً يمكن تجاوزه. إنه عنصر التحدي المهني الاكبر امام الجيوش العالمية التي تقف مع السعودية والامارات في عدوانهما المفتوح ضد اليمن. والسؤال لا يزال من دون إجابة: من أين انطلقت الطائرات المسيّرة والصواريخ المجنحة التي ضربت «أرامكو»؟

الإجابة القائمة اليوم سياسية بامتياز. أصلاً، لا حاجة الى هذه الجمل الطويلة عن السلاح الايراني والدور الايراني والدعم الايراني حتى تبرر السعودية فشلها في مواجهة اليمنيين. لكن الجواب السياسي هدفه، مرة جديدة، العودة الى استراتيجية قامت منذ عامين، ضمن تحالف جمع السعودية واسرائيل والامارات، وجهات حزبية ورسمية عربية اخرى، يحاول من دون توقف إقناع الادارة الاميركية بلا جدوى الحروب الجانبية. صار هؤلاء يتصرفون بأن المعارك في غزة ولبنان وسوريا واليمن والعراق معارك جانبية، وان العلاج يكون بتوجيه ضربة واحدة وحاسمة ضد الرأس المدبر والمشغل، أي إيران.

الاميركيون لا يقلّون حماسة عن جماعتهم لضرب ايران. لكن الحسابات الواقعية تقول عكس ما يفترضون. والرئيس دونالد ترامب، الذي يرفع شعار «أميركا أولاً»، لا يحيد عن المصالح الاساسية لبلاده. وهو لا يرى أن حمايتها تتطلب اليوم حرباً ضد ايران كما حصل في العراق وأفغانستان. وبديله القوي هو برنامج العقوبات والحصار والعزل. وبمعزل عن النتائج الفعلية لهذه السياسات، الا انها البديل الوحيد في غياب خيار الحرب الشاملة. أما افتراض خوض معارك بين حروب، على شاكلة الاعتداءات الاسرائيلية في لبنان وسوريا والعراق، فهو خيار غير متاح، لسبب بسيط، وهو أن ايران لا تقبل به. بل هي تفهم الامر على نحو بسيط: الاعتداء يعني الحرب الشاملة ونقطة على السطر!

في بعض الحالات، تكون مضطراً إلى مساعدة عدوك على شرح حقيقة موقفه وموقعه، لأن التعثر الذي يعانيه يعيق بشكل أكبر عودته الى صوابه. كما يلزمك تصنيع المزيد من السلالم لتأمين نزوله عن الشجرة. أما عندما تصبح سياسة الإنكار قاعدة في تحديد المواقف والسلوكيات، فانك تضطر الى توجيه تحذيرات تهزّه قليلاً، وإن لم يفهم، فعليك بالمزيد ولو اضطررت الى صفعة تفقده وعيه، وهذه هي الحال اليوم مع السعودية واسرائيل والامارات.

لا يزال الكتمان يحيط بتفاصيل كثيرة ومهمة عن عملية «أرامكو» البطولية والنوعية. وفي حال لم تستجب السعودية للمبادرة اليمنية، فستتكرر هذه العملية، وضد أهداف اخرى. وهذا ما يفرض جانباً من الكتمان حول الجوانب التقنية والعملياتية. لكن العقدة المهنية، هنا، ليست في الفشل الاستخباراتي لدى محور العدوان لناحية عدم اعتراف هؤلاء بقدرة أنصار الله على تنفيذ هذا العمل، بل في عدم التقاط أي مؤشرات عملانية على أن عملية بهذا الحجم يجري الاعداد لها. أما الفشل التقني، فلا ينحصر فقط في فشل منظومات الدفاع الجوي المنتشرة بكثافة في السعودية وعلى حدود اليمن، في اعتراض هذه الطائرات، بل يتعلق، أكثر، بالعجز المستمر حتى اليوم عن تحديد نقطة انطلاق هذه العملية، علماً بأن اليمنيين حاولوا تسهيل الامر بالاشارة الى ثلاث نقاط وليس نقطة واحدة انطلقت منها الصواريخ والطائرات.

في لبنان، وخلال ايام قليلة – حتى ولو تأخر الاعلان أكثر – تم تحديد كل التفاصيل الخاصة بغارة الطائرات المسيرة على الضاحية الجنوبية من قبل العدو الاسرائيلي. وعندما يقال كل التفاصيل، لا يقصد كل ما قيل، لأن ما يجب أن يعرفه الجمهور تم كشفه، لناحية مصدر انطلاق الطائرات، وكيفية الاعداد والتجهيز، وتحديد دقيق للمسارات الهجومية ولمسارات الانسحاب أيضاً، إضافة الى تفاصيل مثيرة عن طبيعة الادوات العسكرية والتقنية المستخدمة في هذا الهجوم من قبل العدو.

الهجوم عقابي يهدف إلى وقف العدوان وإذا لم يستجب الأعداء يتم حكماً الانتقال الى الهجوم الاستراتيجي لتغيير كل المعادلات الحالية

إذا كان بمقدور حزب الله والجيش اللبناني الوصول الى هذه النتائج الحاسمة علمياً وأمنياً وعسكرياً، فكيف لا يمكن لجيوش أميركا وإسرائيل وبريطانيا وفرنسا والمانيا ومصر والسودان والسعودية والامارات أن تصل الى خلاصة حول كيفية تنفيذ عملية أرامكو… ما يحصل حتى الآن، لا ينفي أننا اقوياء، لكن هل نحن قبالة أغبياء أم ماذا؟

هذا يعني، ببساطة، أن التحديات المقبلة لا تتصل فقط بطبيعة القرار الذي يجب اتخاذه على المستوى السياسي في كيفية تعامل اميركا وجماعتها مع محور المقاومة، بل تتصل، اكثر، بكيفية التعامل مع العناصر التقنية والعسكرية والامنية والعملياتية التي اظهر محور المقاومة انه يملكها، مع الاشارة الى أن ما ظهر يبدو أنه لا يمثل حتى رأس جبل الجليد لما تملكه دول وقوى محور المقاومة من قدرات.

استراتيجية محور المقاومة

وفي سياق ما يجري، صار واضحاً أن لدى محور المقاومة استراتيجية جديدة في مواجهة الاعداء. والامر هنا لا ينحصر في ساحة دون اخرى، لكن، بما خصّ جبهة اليمن، يمكن الحديث عن الآتي:

أولاً: قرار محور المقاومة الانتقال من مرحلة الصبر الاستراتيجي الى الهجوم العقابي بات مفعلاً ولا يمكن وقفه إلا بوقف الحروب العسكرية والامنية والاقتصادية التي يشنها العدو الاميركي مع حلفائه.

ثانياً: هذا القرار لصيق بقرار آخر، وهو الجاهزية الكاملة للانتقال الى مواجهة شاملة ومفتوحة إن تطلّب الامر، أو قرر العدو الذهاب نحو الحرب الشاملة كخيار مقابل.

ثالثاً: الهجوم العقابي له أهدافه الواضحة والمعلنة بوقف العدوان القائم. ومتى تحقق الهدف سيتوقف الهجوم. أما في حال لم يستجب الاعداء، فهذا يعني، حكماً، الانتقال الى الهجوم الاستراتيجي الهادف الى تغيير كامل للمعادلات القائمة الآن، سياسياً وعسكرياً، وحتى اقتصادياً.

رابعاً: الهجوم العقابي لا يقتصر على مدة أو زمن أو هدف بحدّ ذاته، بل هو قابل للتوسع نحو كل من هو متورط في هذه الحروب القائمة ضد محور المقاومة، ومن دون استثناء. وهذا يعني أن على المنخرطين في هذه الحرب التحسّب لردود قاسية متى تطلب الأمر.

خامساً: إن الهجوم العقابي بات يتطلب اليوم توجيه ضربات مؤلمة أكثر لدول العدوان المباشرة. ويمكن القول إن عملية «أرامكو» قد تبدو «فركة أذن» أمام ما يمكن القيام به، بحسب برنامج الاهداف المحدد.

سادساً: تم توجيه إنذار أخير الى دولة الامارات العربية المتحدة، صراحة وبواسطة طرف ثالث، وهي أمام مهلة زمنية محددة وغير طويلة: إما أن تخرج من المناورة القائمة الآن، وتباشر عملية الخروج من هذا التحالف والانسحاب من اليمن حرباً وتخريباً، شمالاً وجنوباً، وإما عليها أن تنتظر حصتها من الهجوم العقابي. وهو هجوم سيكون قاسياً على دولة لم يسبق لها أن اختبرت النيران داخل بيتها.

أما البند المتعلق بقدرات القوات اليمنية على تنفيذ مثل هذه العمليات، فإن العمل الاستخباراتي الهائل الذي تقوم به دول العدوان على اليمن، سواء من خلال التجسس التقني المتواصل على مدار الساعة، ويشمل كل شيء في اليمن، أم من خلال شبكات العملاء الجاري تجنيدهم بصورة متواصلة، أم من خلال التقاط الاشارات الناجمة عن أخطاء معينة، كل هذا العمل يقود الفرق العاملة في الاستخبارات العسكرية لهذه الدول الى نتيجة واضحة: ثمة نشاط غير مسبوق يجري داخل اليمن، من أجل إنتاج هذه القدرات، ولم يعد الامر يتعلق بعملية تهريب لأسلحة نوعية من خارج الحدود، علماً بأن عمليات المراقبة جارية لكل المنافذ نحو مناطق سيطرة أنصار الله، ويستخدم فيها محور العدوان كل الوسائل التقنية والبشرية والأمنية، ويجري ذلك جواً وبراً وبحراً، وهذا ما يجعل الامور معقدة أكثر بالنسبة إلى دول العدوان بشأن كيفية وصول أنصار الله الى هذا المستوى من التقدم التقني غير المتناسب مع تاريخهم العسكري من جهة، ومع قدرات اليمن الحالية من جهة ثانية…ولذلك، يكون هؤلاء أكثر راحة وهم يفركون رؤوسهم الحائرة، ويصرخون: إنها إيران!

ما يجب أن يعرفه هؤلاء، أن لدى قيادة أنصار الله تصورات وقواعد وروادع وحسابات تحدّ من قدرة قواتها العسكرية على العمل في أماكن شديدة الحساسية عند الأعداء. لكن هذه القواعد تسقط تباعاً، متى صارت الضرورات مبيحة للمحظورات… وعندها لا تبقى هناك خطوط حمر ولا ما يحزنون!

أكبر ضحايا أفيفيم: جون بولتون

سبتمبر 12, 2019

ناصر قنديل

– خلال نصف قرن على الأقل، منذ بدء ولاية الرئيس ريتشارد نيكسون عام 1969 يعبر منصب مستشار الأمن القومي أكثر من سواه عن وجهة السياسات الخارجية، التي تصنعها على الغالب القدرة الأميركية على خوض الحروب، فيما تتولى وزارة الخارجية حصاد النتائج وإعادة توظيفها. وهكذا يظهر فإن أسماء لامعة تبوأت هذا المنصب تركت بصمات بارزة على السياسات الأميركية والعالمية، كما سيظهر أن استقرار هذا المنصب يعبر أكثر من سواه على استقرار القوة الأميركية، وقدرتها على صناعة السياسة.

– مع نيكسون كان هنري كيسنجر هو المستشار، وبقي طيلة الفترة الرئاسية التي لم يُكملها نيكسون وأكملها جيرالد فورد، الذي استبقاه مستشاراً خلال ولايته الأولى ليستبدله باسم لامع آخر هو برنت سكوكروفت، بعد أن أسند لكيسنجر وزارة الخارجية ليقوم بحصاد زرعه بنفسه، فأقام كيسنجر في المنصبين ثماني سنوات كاملة فتح خلالها أبواب الصين وأنهى حرب فيتنام. وفي عهد جيمي كارت اسم لامع آخر هو زبيغنيو بريجنسكي رافقه طيلة سنواته الأربع في البيت الأبيض. أما في عهد رونالد ريغان فستة مستشارون لولايتين يكفي عددهم والنظر في أسمائهم للقول إن عهد ريغان بولايتيه كان عهد الاضطراب السياسي والأمني في السياسة الخارجية، ليعود الاستقرار وتعود الأسماء اللامعة مع جورج بوش الأب، ومستشاره العائد إلى المنصب برنت سكوكرفت، ليرافقه في ولايته حتى نهايتها، التي توّجت بانهيار الاتحاد السوفياتي وسقوط جدار برلين، لتتصدر كوندليسا رايس عهد جورج بوش الإبن ويليها ستيفن هادلي، ويبقى عهد بيل كلينتون قبله بولايتيه فارغاً من أسماء لامعة، لكن الجامع المشترك بين عهدي كلينتون وبوش الإبن هو الاستقرار، بمستشارين لكل منهما لولايتيه، وبينما أتم باراك أوباما ولايتيه بثلاثة مستشارين عاديين للأمن القومي، وحده دونالد ترامب من الرؤساء الأميركيين استهلك أربعة مستشارين ويهم بتعيين الخامس ولم ينهِ ولايته الرئاسية الأولى بعد.

– خلال الشهر الأول من ولايته الأولى استهلك دونالد ترامب أول مستشارين مايكل فلين وكيث كيلوغ، في محاولة التعرّف على كيفية التوفيق بين خطابه الانتخابي القائم على أميركا أولاً و أميركا العظيمة لا أميركا العظمى و لسنا شرطي العالم ، من جهة، وبين متطلبات التفاهم والتعاون مع صناع السياسية الحقيقيين في الدولة العميقة، دولة المخابرات والبنتاغون وكواليس الدبلوماسية وصناعات السلاح وشركات النفط. وكان هربرت ماكماستر مستشار ترامب للمرحلة الأولى التي انتهت بإعلان الرغبة بالانسحاب من سورية، ليشكل مجيء جون بولتون تعبيراً عن محاولة لملاقاة تيار الدعوة للتصعيد والتلويح بالحرب، وخلال أقل من سنة ونصف هوى بولتون صريعاً، بضربة أفيفيم وليس بالخلاف حول أفغانستان. فمعادلة بولتون كانت التهويل يكون أميركياً والحرب إسرائيلية . وهو المولع بكيان الاحتلال، والمتحمس لاسترداد قدرة الردع، ليسقطا معاً في أفيفيم، التي كان يفترض أن تتحول إلى نصف حرب تفتح أبواب التفاوض حول كل ملفات المنطقة، فخذلت إسرائيل عشيقها واختبأت من حرب كان يأمل بأن تفتح أبواباً لتعديل الخرائط.

بعد اليوم سيكون صعباً أن يتحدث قادة الاحتلال عن أن عملية أفيفيم انتهت بلا سقوط ضحايا. فقد كان جون بولتون أهم ضحاياها… والآتي أعظم.

انتبهوا: تغيّرت قواعد الحرب وليس قواعد الاشتباك!

سبتمبر 3, 2019

جاء وعد الله…جاء نصرالله
المقاومة تغير قواعد الحرب وليس قواعد الإشتباك

1ايلول 2019 : سقوط الخطوط الحمراء

ناصر قنديل

وحدَه السيد حسن نصرالله كان يعلم ماذا يفعل بوضع تصنيف عملية الردّ التي قررتها المقاومة على الغارة التي سقط فيها شهيدان للمقاومة في سورية، ضمن إطار العودة لقواعد الاشتباك المعمول بها منذ العام 2006، ومنع المحاولة الإسرائيلية لتغيير قواعد الاشتباك، والردّ الذي نفذته المقاومة جاء بفعل هذا التوصيف تحت غطاء وطني مثله بيان مجلس الدفاع الأعلى وتأكيده حق اللبنانيين بالدفاع بكل الوسائل. وبفعل هذا التوصيف كانت المتابعات التي رافقت العملية تائهة في علوم الحرب، بين عقول سياسية وعسكرية تقليدية قرأت العملية الجديدة للمقاومة كردّ موضعي مدروس بحساب عدم تصعيد الوضع ويشكّل رسالة رد على تمادي جيش الاحتلال، ترافق مع عدم وجود رغبة دولية وأميركية خصوصاً بالتصعيد، ما جعل كيان الاحتلال يحتوي العملية ويمتنع عن الذهاب لرد يؤدي للتصعيد، خصوصاً أنه على أبواب انتخابات لا تحتمل المخاطرة بتصعيد قد يؤدي للانزلاق للحرب.

محبّو المقاومة من أصحاب العقول التقليدية وضعوا نهاية الجولة برد رفع عتب من جيش الاحتلال وما رافقه من كذب بشأن وقوع الإصابات، في إطار حرص المقاومة بعدم توجيه ردّ يُحرج جيش الاحتلال ويكفي لتحقيق الهدف بتثبيت قواعد الاشتباك، وكارهوها ولو أظهر بعضهم خلاف ذلك تحدّثوا عن رد ورد على الرد متفق عليهما، بقنوات اتصال غير مباشرة، بعضهم قال روسية وبعض آخر قال فرنسية، لمنع التصعيد. فهل هذه هي الصورة الحقيقية لما جرى يوم الأحد في الأول من أيلول 2019 الذي صار يوماً تاريخياً؟

المقاومة تؤكد أنها لم ترد بعد على عملية الطائرتين المسيّرتين اللتين خرقتا سماء الضاحية ومثلتا محاولة جيش الاحتلال لتغيير قواعد الاشتباك، وأن الردّ عملياً محدّد بكلام السيد حسن نصرالله، عن توقيت ونوع التعامل الذي سيجري مع الطائرات المسيَّرة لجيش الاحتلال، باعتبارها منذ تاريخ عملية الضاحية، أكبر من انتهاك للسيادة يترك للدولة التعامل معه في إطار توثيق انتهاكات جيش الاحتلال للقرار 1701، لتصير عملاً عدوانياً سيتعرض للمواجهة، واستهداف ما تيسّر من المسيَّرات ضمن حساب يكفي لجعل حركتها مقيدة ومعقدة، ويحول دون استنزاف المقاومة لمواردها وقدراتها في حرب الطائرات المسيَّرة.

عملياً ردّ المقاومة كان على الغارة التي استهدفت مجاهدي المقاومة في سورية، وحملت اسمي شهيدي الغارة. وهنا نحتاج لبعض الهدوء والتأني في القراءة لنعرف ما جرى، ونضع من خلاله رؤية أي سياق يفتتح، وأي معادلة يرسم. فوجود المقاومة في سورية ينتمي لمرحلة ما بعد معادلات وقواعد اشتباك 2006، وما يحكم التعامل مع هذا الوجود لم ترسم له بعد قواعد اشتباك موضوعية يلتزمها الطرفان، المقاومة والاحتلال. بل هناك محاولات من الاحتلال لجعله هدفاً مشروعاً باعتباره وجوداً خارج لبنان، وسعي من المقاومة لجعل كل اعتداء يؤدي لسقوط شهداء موضوعاً للردّ المشروع. وكانت تجربة ثنائية عملية القنيطرة لجيش الاحتلال عام 2015 والرد عليها في مزارع شبعا عام 2015، النموذج الوحيد لهذه المحاولات، التي لم تتحول إلى قواعد اشتباك.

عملياً رد المقاومة فرض هذه المعادلة لحماية دماء مجاهديها في سورية وأي مكان في لبنان وخارجه، والآن صار اسمها قواعد اشتباك أضيفت لما سبقها الذي كان ميدانه الجغرافيا اللبنانية حصراً. فالردّ هنا فرض لقواعد اشتباك جديدة من جانب المقاومة وليس تثبيتاً لقواعد الاشتباك القديمة، لكن الرد يبدو أكبر من ذلك بكثير، بحيث يصير من السذاجة تصديق مجرد التفكير باعبتاره محدوداً وموضعياً ومدروساً. فكيف بالقول إنه متفق عليه؟ فنحن أمام أول عملية تستهدف جيش الاحتلال داخل جغرافيا فلسطين المحتلة عام 1948، من حدود دولة جوار عربي، ينتهي دون رد إسرائيلي بحجم ما يمثل، فيما العمل العسكري لجيش الاحتلال موضوع الردّ كان على وجود المقاومة خارج لبنان. وهو وجود لا يحظى بتغطية دولية تشرعنه، واستهدافه من جيش الاحتلال يحظى بالتفهم الدولي، وبالمقابل رد المقاومة يعتبر عدواناً على ما يعتبره المجتمع الدولي أرضاً إسرائيلية وليس أرضاً لبنانية محتلة، أو متنازعاً عليها، أو أرضاً عربية محتلة كالجولان أو الضفة الغربية، وهذا يعني ببساطة أن وجود المقاومة خارج لبنان بات محمياً بخط أحمر، وأن مواقع الاحتلال داخل فلسطين الـ 48 لم تعد خطاً أحمر.

ردّ المقاومة وما تلاه يقولان شيئاً جديداً كلياً، عبّرت عنه الخارجية الأميركية بما يشبه إعلان الخيبة من تهرّب جيش الاحتلال من الردّ، ومن يقرأه يظن أن الأمور ذاهبة إلى جولة تصعيد، بما تضمنه من تغطية لما وصفه بالحق المشروع لإسرائيل بالدفاع عن نفسها ، ولغة عصبية في الحديث عن تحميل حزب الله مسؤولية التصعيد وزعزعة الاستقرار في لبنان والمنطقة، والاستقرار لم يتزعزع ولا من يزعزعون. وقد مسح الاحتلال بجلده الإهانة وكذب بشأن إصابته لتفادي التصعيد، وجاء البيان الفرنسي مليئاً بالمعاني أيضاً بالتأكيد على الوقوف على مسافة واحدة من طرفين هما المقاومة و إسرائيل . وهو يباهي باتصالاته بكل منهما لمنع التصعيد. وهو يعلم أن أحدهما تعرّض للاستهداف خارج حدوده ، أي المقاومة، والثاني تعرض للاستهداف داخل حدوده ، أي كيان الاحتلال، وأن أحدهما دولة تقيم أفضل العلاقات مع فرنسا، والثاني حركة سياسية عسكرية تصنِّف فرنسا جناحها العسكري المعني بالرد على لوائح الإرهاب.

الذين كانوا في لبنان ينتظرون رد المقاومة ويفركون كفوفهم بانتظار الرد الإسرائيلي على الردّ أصابهم الإحباط، فقد سقطت نظرياتهم عن تعريض المقاومة لبنان لخطر حرب. ونعيق البوم والغربان عن الخراب والدمار ذهب هباء. فقد خذلتهم إسرائيل ، ولم يجدوا إلا الحديث عن حزنهم على غياب الدولة، أو عن قبول مسبق من جانب إسرائيل لصفعة وجودية تاريخية، اخترعوا له وجود تفاهم ضمني أميركي إيراني موهوم لضبط الردّ والردّ على الردّ.

ردّ المقاومة نصف حرب وليس عملاً موضعياً ولا يصلح ليكون رداً متفقاً عليه مع أي كان، فكيف مع الاحتلال المصاب في كبده اليوم، ليصير الردع الذي يحكم معادلة المقاومة والاحتلال، وقد ترسمل بقواعد جديدة بمدى ونوع أعمق بكثير من أن تفسره الانتخابات، أو حسابات نتنياهو، بل حدود قدرة الكيان سياسياً وعسكرياً وشعبياً على تحمّل اختبارات الحرب، الكيان الذي قدّم لنا السيد الإثبات أنه أوهن من أوهن من أوهن من بيت العنكبوت، وها هي إسرائيل المصابة في روحها أمام أعيننا، والأعمى وحده لا يريد أن يرى.

وحدَه السيد يعرف ماذا فعل، فقد غيّر قواعد الحرب وهو يتحدث عن منع العدو من تغيير قواعد الاشتباك، وما جرى سيغير معادلات حركة جيش الاحتلال في سورية والعراق وفلسطين، وكما كل مرة المقاومة تسجل السابقة وتفتح الطريق لتصير قانون حرب.

Sayyed Nasrallah: September 1, 2019… Save the Date, No More Israeli Red Lines

September 2, 2019

Sayyed Nasrallah Ashura third night

Hezbollah S.G. Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah addressing crowds in Sayyed Shuhada Complex in Dahiyeh on the third night of Ashura commemoration (Monday, September 2, 2019).

Marwa Haidar

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah advised the Israelis on Monday to save the date of September 1, 2019 when Lebanon’s Islamic Resistance carried out Avivim retaliatory strike, saying that the operation represented a new stage in the Israeli-resistance struggle.

Addressing crowds at Sayyed Shuhada Complex in Beirut’s Dahiyeh, Sayyed Nasrallah said while the Israeli enemy wanted to change rules of engagements with Hezbollah, the Lebanese Resistance, on its turn, broke red lines set by Tel Aviv.

His eminence stressed that Avivim strike was an achievement by itself, as it took place despite all Israeli and US threats as well as measures taken by the occupation army at the border with Lebanon.

Sayyed Nasrallah, meanwhile, said that the Resistance is committed to confront Israeli drones in the Lebanese skies, but noted, in this context, that its leadership will decide the right time and place for such confrontation.

Thanks and Salutes

After thanking God, Sayyed Nasrallah saluted Resistance fighters “who have been for eight days fully ready to retaliate for the Israeli aggression,” referring to Israeli strikes that killed two of Hezbollah fighters in Syria and the attack by two drones on Beirut’s Dahiyeh last week.

The Resistance leader then praised Lebanese Army and Lebanese people for their support and steadfastness in face of the Israeli aggression.

His eminence also hailed President Michel Aoun, Premier Saad Hairi and Speaker Nabih Berri over their national stances regarding the Israeli aggression.

Sayyed Nasrallah furthermore thanked Lebanese and some Arab media outlets over their coverage that refuted lies circulated by occupation army and media.

“We’ve Punished the Enemy”

Hezbollah S.G. stressed that the latest escalation started last week by the Israeli aggression in Syria and Dahiyeh, noting that Israeli explosive-laden drones, which fell down in Dahiyeh before dawn last Sunday (August 25), failed to achieve their goals.

“Since the first hours (of the aggression) we announced that we won’t keep mum and that we won’t accept new equations to be imposed, so we said that certainly we will retaliate.”

“We announced that the Resistance will retaliate. This announcement represents a point of strength for the Resistance,” Sayyed Nasrallah said during third night of the holy month of Muharram.

“What happened since last Sunday represented a punishment for the enemy…We are before a retaliatory attack on several levels including military and psychological ones.”

“The Israeli Army has evacuated all its posts and bases at the border in Lebanon since I announced my threats. I told them to hide and keep away (from potential targets), but what happened was that they have disappeared!”

“Tyrant Israel Humiliated”

“In the last eight days, the entire world saw Israel – the tyrant power- frightened, concerned and hiding in… It’s humiliation!” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

“On the other side, the Lebanese Army, the Resistance fighters and the Lebanese people stayed in their posts and towns (near the border)… It’s honor!”

Hezbollah S.G. noted, meanwhile, that Avivim strike took place during the day and not the night, stressing that the Resistance leadership deliberately decided to do so, in the Israeli depth and despite all risks and measures taken by the Israeli occupation.

“Despite all measures and fake targets set by the Israeli enemy, the Resistance exerted patience and accurately hit the target. What happened proves the Resistance’s courage, accuracy, responsibility.”

“No More Red Lines”

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that what the Resistance’s operation in Avivim is an achievement since it took place despite threats and intimidation attempts, noting that one of the major red lines set by the Israeli enemy was broken during the strike.

“Territories occupied by the Israeli enemy in 1948 is one of the major red lines set by the Israeli enemy,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, stressing that the Resistance managed to launch an attack at this area, breaking the Israeli major red line.

“While the enemy wanted to change rules of engagements, the Resistance managed to break one of Israel’s major red lines,” his eminence said.

Sayyed Nasrallah addressed the Israeli as saying:

“September 1, 2019… save this date. It’s the start of a new stage of the situation at the border between Lebanon and the Palestinian occupied territories.”

Israeli Drones

Sayyed Nasrallah also vowed that the Resistance will confront the Israeli drones in the Lebanese skies.

“We have a new target today, which is the Israeli drones. In the last years we avoid this target over local considerations,” the Resistance leader said, stressing that it’s the Lebanese people’s right to defend their land.

“We will defend our land. We will confront these drones in the Lebanese skies.”

Sayyed Nasrallah noted that some parties will slam such moves under the pretext that they will rise tensions with the Israeli enemy.

In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah said:

“I tell those people, who are keen for stability in the region, that they have to talk to the international community in a bid to tell Israel that the Resistance won’t accept Israeli violation of the Lebanese sovereignty anymore.”

“Israelis have to know that what happened was because of (Israeli Premier Benjamin) Netanyahu’s idiocy,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, adding: “If Israel attacks us then we won’t recognize the so-called Blue Line.”

Avivim Strike Hit or Didn’t Hit Soldiers!!! Netanyahu Big Liar, ‘Israel’ Cannot Attack Lebanon for Fear of Hezbollah

1038975682

September 2, 2019

As Hezbollah struck Sunday an Israeli military vehicle in Avivim settlement, killing or injuring all soldiers on board, the Zionist PM Benjamin Netanayhu started announced his big lie that the operation did not hit any of his soldiers.

Knowing that the Zionist media is completely subject to the military censorship, the enemy’s media outlets circulated this lie and claimed that ‘Israel’ fooled Hezbollah by showing fake rescue operations.

In a statement, the Islamic Resistance announced it managed to target an Israeli military vehicle near the border with the occupied Palestinian territories, killing and injuring all occupation forces on board.

Sources close to the Resistance said that it would circulate the footage of the operation which shows accuracy and professionalism, adding that it was the Israeli target was spotted from a very narrow angle in Maroun Al-Ras and Aitaroun border towns.

The sources pointed out that the Zionist vehicle was moving slowly on an internal road 899 for the soldiers on board did not expect to be struck in that position.

In this context, Hezbollah fulfilled a promise made by Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah to respond to the Zionist attacks on Dahiyeh and one of its sites in Damascus, restoring the balance of deterrence which Israel tried to break.

Hezbollah Attack on Avivim Turned Balance of Deterrence against Israel to Be Internationally Acknowledged

Diplomatic sources reported that the United States of America, Britain and France had promised Lebanese senior officials that ‘Israel’ may never repeat its attacks on Lebanon, urging them to call on Hezbollah to refrain from responding to the Israeli violations.

The following video which was broadcast by Al-Mayadeen TV Channel shows the Israeli soldiers escaping the border positions after Hezbollah strike and tells all the story:

Finally, even the Israelis know that Hezbollah could have targeted the rescue staff which arrived to the scene of the strike; however, the Resistance’s intention to protect Lebanon and save the Lebanese from the Israeli barbarism was behind the part’s decision to carry out a calculated blow.

Avivim

September 1, 2019

Hezbollah announced on Sunday that Hasan Zbeeb and Yasser Daher’s unit has targeted an Israeli military vehicle near the border with the occupied Palestinian territories, killing and injuring all occupation forces on board.

“At 4.15pm (Beirut Time) on Sunday, September 1, 2019, the unit of martyrs Hassan Zbib and Yasser Daher has destroyed an Israeli military vehicle on the road at the Avivim base, killing and injuring all forces on board,” the Islamic Resistance announced in a statement issued on Sunday afternoon.

Following the attack, the Israeli military confirmed that a military vehicle has been targeted at the border with anti-tank missiles, saying ‘multiple hits’ were scored on ‘army base’.

Israeli websites said helicopters were transferring casualties to Zif Hospital in Safed (Zfat), highlighting that a state of fear and panic prevailed among settlers in the North of occupied Palestine who were told to go to shelters.

Israeli shells were falling around the villages of Maroun al-Ras and Aitaroun in Lebanon’s South.

Lebanese resistance movement #Hezbollah says it has targeted an Israeli military vehicle near the border with the occupied Palestinian lands, killing and injuring all forces on board. According to the Lebanese resistance group, the operation was carried out by two fighter groups, who targeted two Israeli vehicles.
One of the vehicles escaped the Lebanese fighters’ fire, but the other one was totally destroyed leaving all those on board killed or injured. Following the attack on Sunday, Israeli military sources confirmed that a military vehicle has been targeted at the border with anti-tank missiles. #Israel‘s military sources claimed that several anti-tank missiles were fired from #Lebanon, scoring hits, with Israeli forces responding, Reuters reported.
“A number of anti-tank missiles were fired from Lebanon towards an (Israeli military) base and military vehicles,” an Israeli army statement said, adding, “
A number of hits have been confirmed. (Israel’s military) is responding with fire towards the sources of fire and targets in southern Lebanon.”
After the initial reports of fire from Lebanon, a military spokesman called on people in the occupied territories living within four kilometers (2.5 miles) of the Lebanese border to remain at home and prepare shelters, AFP reported.
According to Lebanon’s al-Manar TV, Israeli forces have fired several shells at the border village of Maroun al-Ras in south Lebanon with the channel’s live broadcast from the village showing large plumes of smoke rising from the countryside near the border with the occupied territories. It added that Israeli warplanes are also conducting overflights above the village.
Al-Manar also reported that Israeli military is using phosphorus munitions to attack southern Lebanon in respond to Hezbollah’s attack. Later reports also indicated that the commander of Israeli army’s northern division has been killed in Hezbollah’s Sunday attack.
Al-Manar also quoted Israeli military as reporting multiple hits on an army base by anti-tank missiles fired from Lebanon, noting that helicopters were transferring casualties to Zif Hospital. Israeli media have reported a state of widespread fear and panic among Zionist settlers in the northern part of the occupied territories with Israel’s military ordering residents living within 4 kilometers of the Lebanese border to remain in their homes and open their bomb shelters.

Sayyed Nasrallah: Retaliation Inevitable, All Threats & Intimidation Will Not Prevent It

Zeinab Essa

Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah stressed that “Israel” must pay a price for its aggression on Lebanon.

Addressing thousands of mourners on the first night of Ashoura, Sayyed Nasrallah highlighted that “there is no doubt that since last Sunday, Lebanon as well as the “Israeli” enemy have been living in a new phase and special conditions.”

Hailing the Lebanese national unity over the recent “Israeli” aggression, His Eminence praised the positions of the Lebanese President, House Speaker, Prime Minister and the Supreme Council of Defense

“The Lebanese consensus has its significance, especially when the enemy is exploiting the situation to incite on the resistance,” he added, reiterating that “the response on the “Israeli” aggression will be from Lebanon.”

Sayyed Nasrallah further clarified that “stating that the response is not in Shebaa Farms means that the response will be open because our response to previous operations was in Shebaa Farms.”

In parallel, the Resistance Leader emphasized: “We have been greatly patient when it comes to drones  and the first response to the attack in the Dahyia means that we must start working to down it.”

“We have the right to down the drones, but that does not mean that we will down each one on every hour, day or week,” Sayyed Nasrallah elaborated.

According to His Eminence, Hezbollah Resistance works within a specific performance and tactic i.e. based on its will and estimation.

Based on this, he announced that the Resistance “will choose the time, place and reasons of response.”

Back to the recent “Israeli” drone aggression on Dahyia [Southern Suburbs of Beirut], Sayyed Nasrallah revealed that “the 1st drone was aimed to explode as well as the 2nd one. The two drones aimed to land, drop the bomb and leave in the middle of the night.”

“The “Israeli” must pay the price and the response is coming,” he declared, pointing out that “Israeli” prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s pretext is the claim of precision missiles, and then talking about a goal associated with the manufacture of precision missiles.”

According to His Eminence, “If we had precision missile factories, we would say that we have that, but we do not have precision missile factories.”

“We have precise missiles but we do not have factories for manufacturing it and if one day we were able to have these factories I will proudly announce that,” he said, accusing “Netanyahu for looking for a pretext to impose new rules.”

Meanwhile, His Eminence stated that “Netanyahu is lying to his people by alleging that through what happened in the Dahyia he disrupted the precision missiles factories. Netanyahu is lying to the “Israelis” and the international community.”

“We have in Lebanon what we need in any small or large confrontation from precise missiles,” Sayyed Nasrallah declared, underscoring that “the response to the “Israeli” aggression is final. The issue for us is about establishing rules and protecting a country.”

Warning that “through these drones, the “Israeli” can put bombs and land on the roof of any house, car or building and blow up,” His Eminence cautioned that “the exploding drones will open the door of assassinations in Lebanon.”

“The resistance is not interested in saying what is the response and everything that is being said is neither true nor accurate,” he added, noting that “the Resistance’s way of response is known to only few people and we have no sources and this confuses the enemy.”

Sayyed Nasrallah also said: “The subject of the response is in the hands of the resistance’s military commanders who know what they are doing. It is important to make the enemy understand that our country is not open for aggression.”

 

HEZBOLLAH LEADER REVEALS NEW DETAILS ON SOUTHERN BEIRUT DRONE ATTACK

 

Hezbollah Leader Reveals New Details On Southern Beirut Drone Attack

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah confirmed that the retaliation to the Israeli aggression in Dahiyeh was imminent regardless of the enemy threatening and menacing.

Speaking at the inauguration of the Muharram mourning ceremonies in Sayyed Shohadaa complex on Saturday night, Sayyed Nasrallah said Hezbollah appreciates the Lebanese stance concerning the Israeli aggression on Beirut’s southern suburb last week. “There was a national consensus on condemning what happened (in Dahiyeh) and considering it as a real aggression against Lebanon,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, hailing specifically the official stance of the Lebanese President Michel Aoun, Prime Minister Saad Hariri as well as that of Speaker Nabih Berri.

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu adopted the aggressive actions in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon, adding “the Lebanese official and public stance was very important because the enemy strives on inciting people against the resistance.” “We should stop at Berri’s call to Amal movement to keep vigilant and ready, that means the resistance with all its factions and movements has a firm and coherent stance, cutting road against any delusions,” his eminence confirmed.

Concerning the venue of the resistance retaliation, Sayyed Nasrallah said it will be in Lebanon, not necessarily from Shebaa farms.

“The first retaliation on the Israeli aggression would be initiating our right to down Israeli drones,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, adding that the Israeli enemy should know well that the Lebanese airspace is not open to its drones and daily violations. The UN Security Council and all embassies that are calling officials today, have made no effort to stop the Israeli air violations in the past, his eminence indicated. “The Resistance will choose the right time and place to target the Israeli drones in our airspace,” the Hezbollah leader said.

We will follow a specific strategy, if commit ourselves to drop any drone then the Israeli will send us dozens daily to deplete our capabilities, the S.G. assured.

Sayyed Nasrallah revealed that the drones’ mission was deploying IEDs and detonating them. “The preliminary data from the drone did not show the presence of an explosive device, but on Monday the experts found a bomb in the drone, and therefore we are before a bombing attack without obvious Israeli fingerprints, but it is Allah’s mercy that led us to detect the operation, which forced the Israeli to confess it.”

Commenting on the Israeli claim that the Israeli drones in Dahiyeh were targeting a plant for producing precision-guided missiles, Sayyed Nasrallah said Netanyahu invented this claim to serve him as a pretext to attack Lebanon. “We are before a clear Israeli aggression, and Netanyahu’s claim of the existence of precision-guided missile factories was a pretext to justify targeting Lebanon and break the rules of engagement to impose new ones. Netanyahu wants to convince his people that he’s doing a great job, but he’s lying,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

“There’s no plant for making precision-guided missiles in the place where the drones fell in Dahiyeh,” his eminence said, adding that Hezbollah doesn’t have any plant for producing precision-guided missiles, affirming that Hezbollah has enough missiles of that kind.

“Retaliating the Israeli aggression is inevitable,” Hezbollah leader assured. “Even enemies and adversaries say they understand our right to retaliate, but they try to convince us not to make any reaction or that the retaliation comes modest, but for us it’s not a matter of dignity rather than to affirm the rules of engagement and the logic of protection against any new Israeli aggression,” he said, adding that breaching the Lebanese airspace will open doors for assassinations through drones, “this can’t be tolerated.”

“‘Israel’ should pay the price, all the Israeli threatening and menacing will not keep us from retaliating.”

Sayyed Nasrallah concluded by saying that the resistance is not concerned with revealing any data about the retaliation. “Speculations in this regard are groundless, it’s the mission of field commanders who know exactly what to do, in terms of its time and scale. We intend to keep the enemy confused as it is now.”

“As President Aoun said, we will prove to the whole world that Lebanon is not a country open to aggression,” Sayyed Nasrallah ended up saying.

Hezbollah Will Respond to Israel: But When? How? And at What Cost?

By Elijah Magnier

Source

 

Its Lebanon You Fools 0b60d

The “Axis of the Resistance” has been informed about Hezbollah’s intention to respond to Israel imminently, confirmed sources within the decision-making leadership. The main offices of militant leadership and all gathering of forces have been abandoned or forbidden, and a state of full alert has been declared in preparation for a possible Israeli decision to go to war. In Iran, Syria and Palestine, the finger is on the trigger. Is the Middle East going to war? Actually, it all depends on how far- and in which direction- the Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wants to go: and the degree to which he will accept, or not, the hit back from Hezbollah.

This all snowballed when, from al-Ayen in the Bekaa Valley, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah launched his threat against Israel. He swore to down drones violating Lebanese sovereignty and threatened to kill Israelis. This is would be carried out in retaliation for the Israeli killing of two Hezbollah members in Syria, and for sending suicide drones to hit Hezbollah high-value objectives and capabilities in the suburbs of Beirut. Netanyahu responded a few hours late by bombing a position of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command (PFLP-GC)- in the same Bekaa Valley, to send a clear message to Sayyed Nasrallah:  Hezbollah’s challenge is being acknowledged, and answered with another Israeli challenge. Now it is only a question of when, how, and at what cost the Hezbollah “bloody retaliation” will be, bloody because it is inevitable that Israeli soldiers will be killed.

Sayyed Nasrallah had no option but to respond to the Israeli violation of the Rule of Engagement (ROE) established since the 2006 third Israeli war on Lebanon. If he fails to hit Israel and accepts the ongoing international mediation and politico-financial temptations offered to the Lebanese government to persuade him to renounce his promised attack, he loses his credibility, which is substantial right now. Moreover, Israel would then be encouraged to hit more targets in Lebanon as it is doing in Iraq and in Syria for some years now, against hundreds of objectives. If Hezbollah refrains from responding as promised,  Netanyahu will “get away with it”: this boosts his chances in the forthcoming election.

Sayyed Nasrallah committed himself before the whole world to hit back at Israel. All eyes in the Arab world – in particular among the Palestinians, the Syrians, the Iraqis, the Yemeni and his own Lebanese society that is embracing Hezbollah – are focussed on what the target will be and when the attack will take place. In Israel, Sayyed Nasrallah has high credibility, and people believe him, as indeed most Israeli newspapers write today. Hezbollah is expected to halt Israel’s violation of the Rules of Engagement and give an example to follow for all those within the “Axis of the Resistance” and put a stop to the Israeli attacks on their sovereignty.

It will not be possible to stop all Israeli drones from flying over Lebanon and prevent these from collecting intelligence information. That is considered vital to Israel to update its bank of objectives and analyse any potential threat. Sayyed Nasrallah is aware of that and for that very reason he would indeed attempt to down Israeli drones.

Since the attack against Beirut, Israeli drones continue over flying Beirut: “Israel is doing everything to provoke a reaction from Hezbollah so that it can identify our anti-air missile capability”, said a source within the “Axis of the Resistance”.

Israel is also waiting to see if it is possible to continue targeting Hezbollah warehouses or send suicide drones to target-kill specific individuals, depending on the price it needs to pay in exchange for its killing of Hezbollah operatives. Netanyahu has positioned himself at the bottleneck, unable to move in or out. He pushed his arrogance to the limit in Lebanon, knowing that he would corner Sayyed Nasrallah if Hezbollah were not to hit back (due to the critical financial situation in Lebanon) and the desire to stay away from a devastating war. Now, the Israeli Prime Minister is asking Hezbollah to “calm down”. But it looks like it is too late to turn back the hands of the clock.

Because Iraq did not reply to the Israeli targeting of its warehouses (five destroyed so far) and the assassination of an Iraqi commander (killed by a drone on the Iraqi-Syrian border), Israel obviously concludes that the Iraqi stage is open to its military activities. Hezbollah is aware of the Israeli modus operandi so it cannot permit replication in Lebanon, even at the cost of going to war.

Actually, in Israel, many leaders are blaming Netanyahu for gossiping and bragging about Israel’s responsibility in attacks outside Israel’s borders. Israel generally prefers to be quiet about this practice, one used by Israel for decades but now exploited by Netanyahu for electoral purposes.

So, what is the “cost” Hezbollah is looking for? According to sources within the “Axis of the Resistance”, Hezbollah is looking for a target- to kill two or three Israelis or send a suicide drone against an Israeli military gathering or other more deadly and spectacular options. “Israel is only a few meters from the Lebanese borders. Killing Israeli soldiers is so simple when a Rule of Engagement is violated. Netanyahu will have to justify for his people what advantage he gained in breaking the cessation of hostility since 2006 despite repeated warnings of the consequences. He is either looking for war – in which case both belligerents have to be ready – or he will have caused unnecessary killing on both sides. He will have to pay the price for this,” said the source.

Obviously, Hezbollah is not looking to push Israeli too far outside its comfort zone, with an “acceptable” number of casualties: a hit in exchange for another hit. It will depend on Netanyahu to take it further into war if he wishes to, or to nurse his wounds. Although the Israeli Prime Minister holds the initiative and was respecting to the “rules of the game” as long as he honored the undeclared agreement, it is time now for him to understand that Lebanon, despite its small size, is not Yemen or Syria or Iraq.

Sayyed Nasrallah’s disposition to attack Israel was boosted by the Lebanese President Michel Aoun who described the Israeli aggression as “an act of war”. Prime Minister Saad Hariri considered the aggression “a threat to regional stability”. Hezbollah has enough domestic support to stand against Israel and retaliate even if the situation goes out of control. Sayyed Nasrallah is no longer constrained by the Lebanese officials who asked him months ago to take into consideration the tourist season, and to share their positive view of the highly tense situation in the Middle East. Indeed, the Iranian, Iraqi, Syrian, Palestinian and Lebanese fronts are all on the verge of explosion, depending on how Israel and the US are willing to be “guided.”

During the last Israeli elections, Hezbollah decided to keep at a distance. This time it seems the situation is different. There is an opportunity for Hezbollah to damage Netanyahu who is facing elections during the third week of September. In this case, Hezbollah’s reply to Israel must be before the 19thof September. If Netanyahu decides to go to war regardless of the outcome, he will certainly lose his possibility of re-election. Most probably, if he does not respond to Hezbollah, he will look weak but will come out of it with less damage.

This takes us to the date of the attack. First, and indeed above all, it depends on the opportunity and on identifying a selective target. That depends on the military decision and findings on the Lebanese-Israeli borders and most probably in the next 72 hours. Second, there are possibilities for allowing the 31stof August to go by, the date the “Amal” movement is planning a large gathering in Beirut to start celebrating the first day of Muharram. This is the first night that marks the beginning of Ashura, a solemn day of mourning for the martyrdom of Imam Hussein Bin Ali Bin Abi Taleb, Mohammad’s grandson, at Karbalaa, Iraq.

The first 10 days of Ashura bring most of the Shia in Lebanon and in particular Hezbollah supporters, to the utmost level of sacrifice. Netanyahu could not have chosen a worse timing for his violation of the Rules of Engagement.

Sayyed Nasrallah is not obliged to provide a date of attack to Israel. It is common for an organisation to first exhaust a country’s resources by forcing it to mobilize its forces on all fronts and abroad to protect its embassies. Therefore, the exact date will be kept in the hands of Hezbollah to evaluate. It could be that allowing the Israeli soldiers to relax on the borders after several weeks of lack of action would create the best opportunity, but I doubt Hezbollah would wait that long. As we have said, Hezbollah as a matter of precaution has abandoned its offices and known gathering places: this is standard practice when war (an Israeli hit or attack) is expected. Netanyahu has really no alternative but to wait and decide if war is really going to be his next best option.

More Eligible? ’Israel’ Places Dummies inside Military Vehicles on Lebanon Border!

By Staff

Beirut – Perhaps more qualified to accomplish the mission of guarding the border than real soldiers, the ‘Israeli’ occupation army placed dummies inside their military vehicles across the northern front on facing the Lebanese side.

The breakthrough was first spotted by al-Manar correspondent in South Lebanon, Ali Shoeib, which went viral on Twitter.

Soon after, the military correspondent of ‘Israeli’ channel 10 news, Or Heller, confessed the news, adding an extra close photo on the same incident.

 

 

The measure reaffirms reports of ‘Israeli’ fears of Hezbollah’s awaited response since the last speech of Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah who vowed retaliation to the ‘Israeli’ attacks against Lebanon and Hezbollah members.

The ‘Israeli’ regime attacked a Hezbollah site in Syria, which killed two fighters, and sent two spy drones that crashed over Beirut’s southern suburb [Dahiyeh].

Sayyed Nasrallah on Sunday warned the ‘Israeli’ army to await Hezbollah response, adding that the Resistance will choose the suitable time to respond to the Zionist crimes and violations.

Since then, the ‘Israeli’ occupation army has taken strict measures in order to avoid Hezbollah operation as Zionist analysts maintained that Sayyed Nasrallah’s threats will inevitably come true, referring to His Eminence’s historical credibility in this regard.
