Israel’s IDF Foils Hezbollah Terror Attack Along the Northern Border

Israel’s IDF Foils Hezbollah Terror Attack Along the Northern Border

Prime Minister Netanyahu: Israel will “not allow Iran to entrench militarily on our border.”

The Israeli military on Monday foiled a cross border attack by Iran-backed Hezbollah terrorist group along the Lebanon border. A group of armed terrorists crossed into Israel and were spotted by Israeli soldiers, who repelled the intruders, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed.

The latest attack comes as Israel mobilizes troops amid growing hostile activity by Hezbollah along its northern border with Syria and Lebanon, territories where the Iranian-backed terrorist group has its presence. The Lebanon-based Hezbollah is now freely operating in Syria, where it moved in to fight for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad on the behest of Iran.

Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah has vowed to escalate an armed conflict with Israel after the IDF recently took out one of his operatives linked to a cross border attack on its troops. Hezbollah’s increasing belligerence coincides with Iran’s growing threats to the United States and its allies. The Shia-Islamist group, created in the 1980s by Iranian operatives in Lebanon, is regarded at the foreign terrorist arm of the Tehran regime.

The new website Times of Israel reported the latest Hezbollah attack:

The Israel Defense Forces said it thwarted a Hezbollah attack in the Mount Dov area on Monday afternoon, opening fire at a number of fighters from the terror group that entered Israeli territory. (…)

According to (IDF Spokesperson Hidai) Zilberman, shortly after 3 p.m., the Hezbollah cell entered a few meters into Israeli territory, heading toward a military position on Mount Dov, before troops opened fire with machine guns, tanks and artillery cannons, driving them back into Lebanese territory.

Zilberman said the Hezbollah members were spotted by soldiers operating powerful security cameras shortly before they crossed the border and were tracked the entire time they were inside Israeli territory. Israeli defense officials later said the men were armed.

Israel will “not allow Iran to entrench militarily on our border,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned following the attack. “We view the attempt to infiltrate our territory with great severity. Hezbollah and Lebanon bear full responsibility for this incident and for any attack that comes out of Lebanese territory against Israel,” he said in a statement.

Defense Minister Benny Gantz reiterated Israel’s resolve to “protect the lives of its soldiers and its civilians” against Iranian and Hezbollah terror attacks.

“Iran and its proxies are still trying to strangle our northern border in an Iranian chokehold,” he said. “The IDF and our security forces will continue to block Iranian entrenchment, as well as the transfer of destabilizing weapons, and precision weapon systems.”

Hezbollah’s build-up suggests that it is looking to escalate a large-scale conflict with Israel. Besides cross border attacks aimed at Israeli soldiers and civilians, the terrorist group has invested heavily in digging terror tunnels along the border. The largest of these tunnels, sealed by the IDF last May, was made for the “specific purpose of allowing thousands of Hezbollah terrorists to stage an infiltration attack on military and civilian targets,” the Times of Israel reported in May 2019.

With billions of dollars poured in by Tehran, Hezbollah has become a big terrorist player with bases of operation in several countries. Besides operating in Lebanon and Syria, the terrorist group has declared war on the U.S. troops in Iraq. In January, Hezbollah chief Nasrallah pledged his group’s support for an Iran-led jihad against America.

Iran is going down.

    Psalms 44:5
    Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.

    Psalms 54:5
    He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in thy truth.

    Psalms 56:9
    When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.

    Psalms 59:10
    The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.

    I have repeatedly advocated taking out Iran’s hydroelectric dams, water reservoirs, and high tension grid.

    1) This is less drastic that nuking them or carpet bombing them with fuel-air bombs.

    2) Creating a large shortage of power reduces their ability to refine nuclear material.

    3) Lowering the number of heat sources makes it easier to identify additional military targets.

    4) Additional hardship for the people makes it more likely they will take action against the Iranian government.

    I also think that we should take out their petroleum production. All of this should happen before China gets a chance to move in.

    Sez hoo?

Been so much drama over here in the States lately that it’s really taken our attention off of other important matters that are going on in the world. Thank you Vjeta for bringing this to our attention. It’s an important reminder that bad guys around the world aren’t going to take a break just because we’re busy with our internal problems.

Obama sent all that cash, this is his legacy. Obama should be tried for treason, and receive the max penalty,

    Do Dumbya first, for taking out Goddam Insane in Iraq, removing that mortal enemy from Iran’s flank and setting the stage for Joe Stalin II (Putin) to ally with the Dentist-Dictator-Mass Murderer of Syria and the Persians.
    Wouldn’t hurt to remove the Neville Chamberlain Memorial Society (EU) for their significant contribution to the dissolution of Western Style democracies across the planet since about 1956, with a special posthumous recognition of the original DeGaulle award for Chuck; for abandoning Israel and supplying Iran with nuclear technology along with the Soviets.

Dog bites man. The “world community” yawns.

Now, if Israeli soldiers were making cross-border attacks on an enemy of America and Israel (and Western civilization), the “world community” would go rabid, and you’d hear the barking everywhere with no end.

    Don’t forget the pontificating from the Pontiff and especially United Anti-Semitic Nations and Dishonorable Mention for countries like Ireland that implemented anti-Israeli BDS laws to support global Islamofascism and the genocidal elimination of the multi-cultural democracy of Israel from the Earth.

I’m sorry to be a killjoy, but I see a wee bit of a problem in this story. I quote: “the Hezbollah cell entered a few meters into Israeli territory, heading toward a military position on Mount Dov, before troops opened fire with machine guns, tanks and artillery cannons, driving them back into Lebanese territory.”

So tell me how you open fire at fairly close range with machine guns, tanks, and artillery and there are Zero casualties? Not even a goat?

I’ll skip the smart ass comments. This is serious business. The mistake the Japanese made in WWII was they surprised us.

They didn’t figure out we were learning. Until it was too late.

The IDF is good. But the Iranians are learning.

    They’re learning that if they steal an inch, eventually they’ll make a mile, with the backing of Putin’s autocracy and the submission of the EU to the Islamofacist invasion. Not to mention nuclear and missile technology from the jerk whose name sounds like a constipated water buffalo straining at stool in North Korea.

“Driving them back” is good. “Killing them all” is better.

    Isn’t “all” unnecessarily expensive and placing more of our military in harm’s way for minimal gain? JusticeDelivered’s plan is equally capable of being executed from stand-off positions and can bring peace at a lower cost in both lives and dollars.

I can’t sleep. I’ve been awake forever. Ever since I lost my son I’ve been awake. Because I should have been able to do something.

Damn.I had one chance to be a father and I failed. I can’t feel sorry for myself. It was a lot harder on the child.

Still. It would be nice to sleep.

When I found out he died I broke down and cried. At first I couldn’t talk about it then after thinking about it if you can’t cry for your son what kind of man are you.
