Israel on high alert for possible Hezbollah attack

A senior Israeli defense official was quoted by Israeli newspaper WND as saying that the Jewish state is on heightened alert for possible attacks by the Iranian-backed Hezbollah organization in Lebanon.

The official reportedly said that Israel is concerned that Hezbollah might try to spark a conflict to deflect attention from an international tribunal investigating the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, who was assassinated in a car bomb explosion in 2005.

The probe is reportedly set to indict members of Hezbollah for the murder. The indictments may come as soon as the next few weeks, reports have claimed.

Hezbollah is reportedly deeply concerned about the political fallout within Lebanon if its members are accused of murdering Hariri, the defense official said.

Israel is reportedly concerned that Hezbollah may try to carry out attacks against Israel similar to those that prompted the 2006 Lebanon War. During that conflict over 1200 Lebanese were killed mostly civilians and 160 Israelis mainly soldiers..

Discrediting STL

Hezbollah and Syria have attempted to discredit UN’s Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) . Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah claimed during a TV address that Israel was behind Hariri’s killing and that spies working for Israel planted “false evidence” blaming Hezbollah.

Last Sunday Syria issued arrest warrants against 33 people for allegedly misleading the U.N. investigation. The targets include figures close to Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri – Rafik Hariri’s son – including his media adviser, senior security officers and journalists working in Hariri-owned media outlets.

The tribunal’s mandate is to “prosecute persons responsible for the attack on 14 February 2005 resulting in the death of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and in the death or injury of other persons.” It was also tasked with a further extension of its jurisdiction beyond the 14 February 2005 bombing if there was evidence showing other attacks that occurred in Lebanon between 1 October 2004 and 12 December 2005 were connected and were of a similar nature and gravity to the original attack.

    Attack what? Israel stop bullshitting , The iranian party is capable of defending and attacking internally when you were occupying the south , but are not a party to attack you inside by infantry , plus now the Iranian party is more interested in ‘t attacking the Lebanese Chrsitians and Sunnis more than Israel, so don’t worry ,it seems the Iranian party soon will have a honeymoon with you same as Assad have a honeymoon with you that lasted so fare since 1973 , so maybe the Iranian party will lean from the Assad , and you three you will have a threesome honeymoon that will last another 30 years .Let’s face it Israel and USA are behind making the Shiites more powerful in the region in order to create conflict with the Sunnis and you can sit and watch them as what’s happening now and Iraq.So please Israel keep your BS to yourself !!!!

      Iraq landed scuds, I agree with you , but what I meant they dont have means to attack infantry wise, rocket who cares,don’t forget the misery that shiites populations has to go through, just last week the Lebanese arm was showing in the south the population who to identify the cluster bomb mines ,there is around half million of them spread in little shape as “Ghille”, every week you had an injury after 2006 war . The last 3 days of the 2006 war Israel finished all cluster bombs they have in stock given by USA since the Vietnam war on south Lebanon ,CNN correspondent Anderson Cooper was standing there watching.Third of the southern suburbs was flattened , the Katyusha that the iranian party sent was scary but damage wise was so minimal , I am not sure what definition of victory is anymore ,yes they withstand the attack , but they accepted the Lebanese army to enter and they accepted the 1701 resolution because it was too much losses as himself Nasrallah admitted , so let be realistic, yes they are brave ,but it was non sense provocation for a country that had enough really from everything , let the Syrian go fight next time ,they really need the exersice, just look at Mouallem body and you know what I am talking about!!!!!

    logically thinking it was in israel best interrest that mp rafik harriri stayed alive who was going to eliminate syria,s influence in lebanon and guarantee thier departure from israel backyard (lebanon);if mp harriri would have survived versus his assasination means uncertain future security for thier backyard
    as smart as israel is they would have chosen the first choice
    now the party of interrest in his assassination the trees (group ha syria iran)
    the syrian were going to lose billions of dollars that they were stealing from lebanon because mp harriri would not extend teir stay in lebanon and he was going to through them out so it is obvious here who is the biggest gainer here was mostl ikley the assasin
    after all they have killed 100 thousands lebaneese innocent women and children how hard would be one more crime tfor them to commit so there was the victim mp harriri

    dear guss
    the truth is ha they are not really good at war what they are really good at is hiding the only rason they survived because they were hiding in tunnels under ground 500 ft most the war time and they did not face the israeili army face to face war in the open field
    and israel destoyed evrything their buildings thier installations their infrastructures while they were hiding under ground and when finally the un and the world pressuring israel to stop the war they were begging for ceize fire and as soon as
    and israel left they came out of the hiding and they shouted waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah we won telling the people in the south lies they won what? they did,nt even fight ;
    how could they say they have won they did not even fight they were hiding 500 feet under ground
    but they had to lie to people in the south so they can keep thier support and thier position
