Hezbollah Helping Hamas Broadcast Reach Israeli Capital: Report

Sputnik / Yakov Andreev

Sputniknews reports (source):

With Israeli military forces announcing that Operation Northern Shield, which aimed at destroying alleged Hezbollah tunnels on the Israeli-Lebanese border, is coming to a close, the group along with Hamas has found another way of getting into the Jewish state-by using radio waves.

The Gaza-based radio station Al-Aqsa radio, run by Hamas (acknowledged as a terror group by Israel, Canada, the US and the EU), has started sending signals into Israel, the Times of Israel reports, citing an Israeli satellite imagery company. This has become possible due to a new tower, set up in a Lebanese village close to the country’s border with Israel. According to the outlet, Iranian-backed Hezbollah assisted its installment.

The outlet cites the CEO of Sat View Nissan Cohen as saying that the new tower’s radio signal is “very, very powerful”, reaching listeners in Tel Aviv and disrupting local broadcasters.

“Three media outlets turned to us and said there was something disrupting [their broadcasts] on frequency 101.6 [FM]. So we went to check. We followed [the broadcasts] north, got to the Lebanese border and realised it’s coming from there”, Cohen told the Army Radio.

Interestingly enough, the signal’s power source is reportedly located close to a site where the Israel Defense Forces have been trying to eliminate secret tunnels, believed to have been dug by Hezbollah from Lebanon to Israel.

The news about the Hamas-supported radio station comes hot on the heels of an Israeli announcement that Operation Northern Shield, launched to thwart possible attacks against the country by demolishing these secret passages, is ending. IDF Spokesman Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis stated that they had discovered a sixth and largest tunnel, also reported to be the last one, crossing into the country and are now working on its destruction.

Lebanese-Israeli relations have been poor for decades, but tensions have escalated in recent years  as Israel has accused Hezbollah of being used by Iran to wage a proxy war on Israel. The last lengthy conflict between them happened in 2006, with Israeli forces invading Lebanon after Hezbollah kidnapped two Israeli soldiers in a cross-border raid. It lasted over a month, claimed the lives of over 1,300 people and was halted by a UN-brokered ceasefire.

    The Israelis don’t care, taunts mean nothing to them.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Zionist scum only understand the logic of force and casualties.

        The same goes for You. Semi and Noah was the fathers of both of You.

  • iosongasingsing

    The Zionists will be rabid, they will try to bomb it, the S-300 is needed by the Lebanon.

    • LR captain

      5 pansir systems controlled by Hezbollah would be enough that Israeli jets would start firing into Lebanon. Becuase they would fear that the Pansir could track and fire at them. (it could but would focus on the missiles launched by the jets.)

      • Jens Holm

        Thats right. They even have to.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Yeah, and a lot good the Russian decoration pieces S-300 have done for Syria. Zionists won’t attack Lebanon because unlike Syria, Hezbollah will hit back hard, no matter what the cost and the Zionist scum understand that logic.

      • Jens Holm

        Strange version.
