Israel Says it Hit Nearly '100 Hizbullah' Arms Convoys in 5 Years

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Israel's military army has carried out nearly 100 strikes in the past five years on convoys carrying weapons to Hizbullah and other militant groups in Syria and elsewhere, an Israeli general said Thursday.

Former air force commander Amir Eshel told Haaretz newspaper that "since 2012, I'm talking about many dozens of strikes... the number is close to being three digits".

"An action could be an isolated thing, small and pinpointed, or it could be an intense week involving a great many elements," he said of the strikes.

Since Syria's civil war erupted in 2011, Israel has maintained a policy of attacking arms convoys intended for Hizbullah, which is a key supporter of the Syrian regime and fought a devastating war against the Jewish state in 2006.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said last year that Israel had "taken military action" against Iranian convoys leading weapons to Hizbullah "dozens and dozens of times".

Israel also carries out strikes in retaliation for spillover in fighting on the Golan Heights facing Syria when rockets or other projectiles have landed over the demarcation line.

According to Eshel, who was commander of the air force for five years, the strikes had been precise enough to avoid escalation, but at the same time they had served as a deterrent to war with Israel.

"I think that in the view of our enemies, as I understand things, this language is clear here and also understood beyond the Middle East," Eshel told Haaretz.

He did not specify the location of the strikes, but Haaretz said they were carried out on a number of different fronts.

Israel seized 1,200 square kilometers (460 square miles) of the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war and later annexed it in a move never recognized by the international community.

Around 510 square kilometers remain under Syrian control.

"Israel is so powerful but lives in fear day by night"

when was the last time you visited Israel? :)!

Thumb gebran_sons 17 August 2017, 16:38

srael and Hizbollah are two sides of the same coin. They use each other to scare their population so they can nurture a war mentality, a war economy, easy indoctrination and diverting people attention from freedom and democracy. They are each other best asset!

Thumb s.o.s 17 August 2017, 18:12

Yes, but one is uglier than the other. We know where Natanyahu lives and work, yet the Shia terrorist leadership lives in hiding with no known address.

When you see all the Israelis and the millions of foreign tourists going to the beaches, visiting the holy sites for all three religions etc, you certainly don't see a scared population who are permanently on a war footing.
On the other hand you see Nasrallah stuck for years in his underground bunker still claiming victory in his latest war with Israel and trying to explain away the hundreds of terrorists killed on a regular basis in Syria. There you see a scared population with their Hizballah oppressors permanently on a war footing.

yeah you mean like the 'reactions and actions' of your hezbollah in response to the 100 Israeli strikes:)

Stupidhezbi, I'm sorry to point out that your comments are no so stupid at all. In fact they're way smarter than what Qaooq or Nusraloot's average speeches.
So how come there aren't more like you in the yellow terrorist organization?

Nassrallah and his deputy clearly stated it is not on hezbollah's agenda to wage a war or open conflicts with Israel. Hezbollah's main objective is to cause mayhem in the Arab world, change regimes, and spread shiism of wilayat al faqih.

"It is not on hezbollah's agenda to wage a war or open conflicts with Israel." So why exactly do they "claim" to have 150.000 rockets aimed at Israel?

Thumb galaxy 18 August 2017, 17:32

philippo, you people still don't understand who hezbollah is. All this talk about rockets and bravado is for pure consumption for their ignorant and uneducated followers. Hezbollah main objective is to topple arab regimes and as @barry said they want to spread their heretic so called religion and avenge their husssain; a 1500 year old grudge. Iran has no hostility towards Israel, believe me. Iran talks about destroying Israel when all it does is arm sectarian shia militants in Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, Bahrain and Yemen among other places to go on a killing spree.

When was the last time Iran fired a bullet at Israel? Never! and it will stay like that forever.

It is amazing one shia troll says the israelis are living in fear and in bunkers and another mystic troll says the israelis spend their times on the beaches while his iranian resistance is gaining battle experience in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.

The Mystic boyfriend I thought you were too busy to post and that you wanted me to post your patriotic slogan "ما بدنا جيش بلبنان إلا جيشك يا حسين". I remember when to impress me you took me down into the catacombs of Dahieh so we could to watch Sayyed Hassan, the single man that some diluted believe is in hiding, record his video. You guys kept shaking your fists and repeatedly singing at Sayyed Hassan:
"ما بدنا جيش بلبنان إلا جيشك يا حسين"
"ما بدنا جيش بلبنان إلا جيشك يا حسين"

He looked so proud of you I got exited and even though I did not know what that meant I started shaking my fist and started phonetically singing at Sayyed Hassan with you:
"ما بدنا جيش بلبنان إلا جيشك يا حمار"
"ما بدنا جيش بلبنان إلا جيشك يا حمار"
"ما بدنا جيش بلبنان إلا جيشك يا حمار"
"ما بدنا جيش بلبنان إلا جيشك يا حمار"
My pronunciation is not exactly correct but I think it means the same thing.

Never forget that all info coming from Ebola is disinformation. We have the proof for the past 11 years.

Why am I not saying that info from Israel is also disinformation? Simply because despite the fact that Israel is an enemy, its info is correct most of the time.

Israel Says it Hit Nearly '100 Hizbullah' Arms Convoys in 5 Years

that is around 1.67 airstrikes a month for the last five years! and all you hear the chief iranian terrorist say is he is going to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.

I wonder when Israel will make peace with the Palestinians what will happen with the liberation slogans of Iranium.

Missing phillipo 18 August 2017, 13:30

It is not a question of when will Israel make peace with the Palestinians but when will the Palestinians agree to get off their high horses and agree to make peace with Israel.
Israel has been trying to make peace with the Palestinians ever since 1967, but the Palestinians have always refused to sit down and make an agreements. For the past three years they even refuse to talk.
At the moment the Palestinians want "pieces of Israel" not "peace with Israel"
If peace came about Abu Mazen wouldn't be able to cry all the time to the Arab States for money claiming that his people are under occupation. He'd lose hundreds of millions if/when peace came.

bizarre, the CPL/FPMers are not good Christians because they're thieves, and from what I hear here and elsewhere Hezbollah are not Muslims but heretics.... so much for "Muslim Christian Unity"

Hahahahaha idiot come to our sensors? Is that what they taught you at the University of Damascus? Believe me I would be grateful that god sent you president auon if I knew who he was. Is this the Muslims and Christians unity that you keep bragging about ما بدنا جيش بلبنان إلا جيشك يا حسين. I don't see you criticizing the Hezbollah troll who posted it, which mean you agree with it. Nothing can be further from Muslims and Christians unity.
