Israel on Brink of War with Hezbollah

Israel and the Iranian-backed terror group Hezbollah in southern Lebanon drew closer to war Monday as U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken was set to arrive in Israel on Monday evening.

Over the weekend, Hezbollah had launched a rocket attack on an Israeli base on Mount Meron, in northern Israel — a serious escalation of its attacks.

In return, Israel attacked a Hezbollah command post in southern Lebanon, killing a major commander, reportedly Wissam al-Tawil (or “Jawad”) of the “elite” Radwan force.

Israel has warned Hezbollah for weeks not to open a second front in the war, as it battled Hamas terrorists in Gaza. As the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has dismantled more and more of Hamas’s military capabilities, Hezbollah has faced more pressure to act.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated his government’s warnings to Hezbollah, the Times of Israel reported:

In the northern city of Kiryat Shmona, Prime Minister Netanyahu tells IDF reservists that Israel prefers to restore security in the area without going to war with Hezbollah, but that it is ready to do so.

“Hezbollah got us wrong in a major way in 2006, and is getting us seriously wrong even now,” he tells soldiers from the 769th Regional Brigade.

“Of course, we prefer that this be done without a widespread campaign, but that will not stop us,” says the prime minister. “We gave them an example of what is happening to their friends in the south; this is what will happen here in the north. We will do everything to restore security.”

The U.S.S. Ford, one of two aircraft carriers dispatched by U.S. President Joe Biden to the eastern Mediterranean to deter Iran from opening a second front, reportedly left the region last week — which may have opened the door to the ongoing escalation.

Blinken is seeking regional support for a deescalation in the conflict and an agreement on the post-Hamas future in Gaza.

    Hmmm

    There is NO “WAR” October 7th was a false flag op by israel from start to finish. Nor were more than a handful of jewish “israelis” killed that day. Israel rounded up hundreds of Palestinians put them in a staged “festival” and then attacked and killed them all with tank, artillery and gunships.

    Even if one were to accept the initial israeli claims of a Hamas uprising, the notion that “HAMAS” as any kind of fighting force, let alone an army requiring a “war” to defeat” isn’t just illogical based on basic logistical constraints on such an Army to conduct a “war” that lasted more than a few days at most, it cannot explain how such a massive “Army” managed to escape from the most heavily guarded, survielled and monitors concentration camp in the world without detection. Nor does it explain where the food, water, ammunition, etc., not to mention apparently endless supplies of soldiers has been coming from that has allegedly allowed “HAMAS” to not only remain a cohesive fighting force but continue to fight for 60 plus days against a military force that is infinitely more powerful, has complete control of the air and sea and all of the ground surrounding the concentration camp.

    The logistics of carrying on “war” even a very small war for an extended period of time are staggering. It is is clear that “HAMAS” NEVER HAD THAT CAPABILITY, PERIOD!

    israel is committing genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity to steal the rest of the Sovereign State of Palestine, nothing less…

    Hezbollah is much more formidable than it used to be. Israel should hope that it does not have to fight them on their turf.
