Israel Sends Warning Message To Iran After Bombing Hezbollah Last Week

Illustrative Image

Israel blames Hezbollah for attack despite allegedly being carried out by Palestinian groups.

Written by Paul Antonopoulos, independent geopolitical analyst

The Israeli air force admitted for the first time since 2014 that it carried out several strikes in southern Lebanon against Hezbollah military installations. Air raids in the early hours of August 5 targeted the Lebanese villages of Mahmoudieh and Aaichiyeh, and the Lebanese army also recorded artillery fire from Israel.

According to Israeli military spokesman Avichay Adraee, the airstrikes targeted Hezbollah missile launch sites, “as well as infrastructure used for terrorist activities.” Israel claims that its attacks against Hezbollah were in response to rocket fire coming from southern Lebanon, something which the Shi’ite group has not taken responsibility for. Local sources say that the attacks against Israel were actually by Lebanon-based Palestinian groups.

Former Lebanese Prime Minister Hassan Diab condemned the Israeli attack and lodged an urgent complaint with the Security Council, saying: “The Israeli enemy, with its artillery first and then its warplanes, carried out an explicit aggression against the sovereignty of Lebanon. The enemy has publicly admitted to having violated Resolution 1701.”

Resolution 1701 (2006) “reiterates its strong support, as recalled in all its previous relevant resolutions, for the territorial integrity, sovereignty and political independence of Lebanon within its internationally recognized borders, as contemplated by the Israeli-Lebanese General Armistice Agreement of 23 March 1949.”

It is recalled that during the short war between Hamas and Israel from May 10 to 21, missiles were fired from Lebanon in support of the Palestinians. Fearing war on several fronts, the Israeli military sent combat drones into Lebanese territory and also fired artillery. In a statement, the Israeli military also threatened to act even more firmly against Lebanon if rocket fire continued.

By Israel attacking Hezbollah despite Lebanon-based Palestinian groups being behind the attacks, Tel Aviv is essentially sending a warning message to Iran. Tehran is accused by Israel, the U.S. and the United Kingdom of being behind the recent attack in the Arabian Sea against a merchant ship managed by an Israeli billionaire. Iranian authorities deny any involvement in the drone attack which killed two crew members.

Washington promised a “collective response” for the alleged Iranian attack. The British Prime Minister said “Iran should face up to the consequences of what they’ve done” as it was “clearly an unacceptable and outrageous attack on commercial shipping.”

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett for his part raised the possibility of a unilateral response against Iran. On August 3, Bennet said “the time to get comfortable in Tehran and set the whole Middle East on fire from there is over. We work to mobilize the world, but at the same time, we also know how to act on our own. Iran knows the price we charge when someone threatens our security.”

Therefore, it is likely that the Israeli attack against Hezbollah was not in response to the rocket barrage that has been attributed to Palestinian groups, but rather in response to the event in the Arabian Sea. These events are linked with the regional geopolitical situation, particularly with the Iranian nuclear issue.

Still at a standstill, negotiations with Washington to return to the Iranian nuclear deal are not making any serious advancements. The Americans and the European Union demand that Tehran returns to the terms of the agreement signed in Vienna in 2015 by respecting the uranium enrichment rate. On the other hand, Tehran urges the West to lift all sanctions against it if they wish for Iran to return to the initial conditions that were agreed upon. During his inauguration on August 3, the new Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi declared: “we will certainly seek the lifting of the oppressive sanctions, but we will not tie the living conditions of the nation to the will of the foreigner.”

Tel Aviv categorically refuses to allow its European and American allies to return to the nuclear deal. In fact, Israel wants to maintain an aggressive and hostile policy against Iran and its allies. It is for this reason that the Israeli Air Force has reportedly carried out more than 1,000 strikes in Syria in the past three years with the objective of annihilating the military capabilities of Iranian-backed forces near its borders.

Last December, Brigadier General Yossi Kuperwasser, former head of the Israeli military intelligence research wing, explained how Israel wants to prevent “Iran from turning Syria into an Iranian base close to Israel, which could bring a radical strategic change in the situation. This is why we continue to shell Iranian bases so that they do not take control of the country.”

Israel is therefore imposing its own conditions and conducting its own manoeuvres to complicate Iran’s position. Although the exchange of fire between Israel and southern Lebanon is unlikely going to escalate into a new war, it does once again demonstrate Tel Aviv’s resolve in responding to any attacks, especially those that it perceives is masterminded by Iran.

Zioncunts are sh1t scared of Hezbollah lol

The Objective

They just bombed several Hezbo missile sites. It’s actually the other way round. I know for sure Hezbollah won’t retaliate by bombing Israeli targets. Your resistance axis is just too fucking scared of a war with America to take such a risk. So they are going to keep dodging while proclaiming that they’ll liberate Jerusalem. If this is how they intend to face up to Israel and America, then the Shiites have lost this war already. Time to shut up.

Diaper Hasbara Dan

Just the word Iran triggers the Wahhabi rat living in the US ROFLMAO :)

farbat

you got the whole issue wrong in fact the entire resistance did send a message to the zionists which was that we will retaliate for every air attack with equal amount of destruction and it was 2 dozen small rockets because the zionists simply hit a field

The Objective

What is your proof that Israel did not hit valuable targets? You are just denying so that Hezbollah doesn’t look so much like the coward that it is. My research shows that Israel did hit valuable targets in Lebanon.

Diaper Hasbara Dan

LOL, research.

farbat

the entire resistance gave the messages of the entire resistance should be put into account aswell for example the iraqi resistance said they will retaliate for all the attacks against iraq in the past coming from the zionists including the attack against iraqi nuclear facilities now the zionists can calculate what that means

In real war strategic calculus and several war game scenarios held by NATO, US, Russia, China and Iran, the Zionist regime would collapse under the weight of unrestricted long term kinetic asymmetrical 5th generation warfare that Iran and Hezbollah excel. This would entail the complete destruction of Zionist cities, mass exodus back to Ukraine, Russia and North America. The IDF simply does not have the manpower to sustain combat against well trained, motivated and determined foes. Beating up unarmed Palestinian women and children is their forte.

The Objective

Moronic commenters. The war is already on and many of your people have died since 2015. At least 1500 – 2000 Hezbollah fighters died in Syria. Hezbollah doesn’t announce this, but one organization counted burial ceremonies of Hezbo terrors in Lebanon. Hundreds of Iranian soldiers have also died in Syria under Israeli fire. This too they don’t admit as it will compel them to retaliate or look the real cowards that they are.

If Iran is certain to win based on these war games, why does it keep dodging a war with America? Why has it not taken the life of an American general as pay back for Soleimani? Your leaders are very aware the U.S is just looking for the right excuse to start dropping GBU bombs on Iran. You have no defense against a sustained air attack. All you have are standoff munitions that can destroy bases within a certain range of your borders. But the U.S military has been investing in long-range strike capabilities specifically targeted at Iran since 2007. With their new aerial refueling tankers, autonomous aerial and sea vehicles, new undersea warfare capabilities, they’ll destroy much of you naval and ground forces within weeks of a conflict. Despite the mouthiness, Iran knows this fact, and that is why it will keep avoiding a war no matter how badly America provokes Iran. Your biggest weakness is the air-force and anti-air defense blanket. Your drone force is still premature otherwise you would have used drones for precision strikes against ISIS targets in Syria. Were Iran to have the kind of drones like the TB2, ISIS will find no hiding place in Syria because the drones will track them day and night since they can fly for 24 hours.

Soooo much BS, so little time ;)

The Objective

Bullshit. they won’t do a damn thing. Let them get the U.S out first. They are too fucking scared of the U.S. They didn’t even have the courage to retaliate for Soleimani and Muhandith. Will they summon up enough courage to retaliate for less important individuals? You are delusional. Anyone who cannot see that the Iranian regime is doing all it can to survive must be blind. A war will destroy this regime to its very roots.

farbat

the yemeni resistance gave a message that they will turn the siege against yemen which ultimately was a zionist conspiracy around against the zionists

Icarus Tanović

What do you mean? I think you made mistake in typing.

farbat

i give the zionists less than 10 months before they will get wrecked entirely and palestine will be liberated so lets see what they will do in that time

the zionists will never again be able to use air power because they will lose much more in return because not just will an equal amount of destruction take place but others will take the opportunity to take retaliation and resolve grudges for former aggressions by zionists and the zionists attacked alot of its neighbors in the past so there are tons of grudges against them

When they nuked Beirut that tipped the Dominos. Russia will not allow something like that again. The usage of the Tor system recently was a clear message towards Israel. I hope they understood.

farbat

du scheinst anscheinend nicht viel denken zu können und nein die benutzung von nuklear waffen ist ziemlich unwarscheinlich denn der widerstand kennt die genaue position jeder nuklearen waffe und installation in der zionistischen besatzungsmacht und sobald eine dieser waffen gestartet wird sagen wir mal so die installationen und die waffen selber werden zerstört was widerrum zu mehreren nuklearen explosionen führen wird

deren problem ist mangel an strategischer tiefe um uns wirklich bekämpfen zu können und weil irans strategische tiefe den ganzen weg bis in gaza geht ist für die zionisten praktisch wenig geblieben und deren “airpower” wird bald genauso wenig wert sein nun fang mal an etwas zu denken und mach dies mal lieber selber XD

Jim Allen

That wasn’t the first time the pretenders used a nuke against Lebanon.

Cromwell

Next time those Zionist gangsters launch a major attack on Lebanon they may end up fighting Hezbollah inside Israel.

noZioP1gs

Israel sends messsage to iran? LoL. more like begging Iran not to flatten Tel Aviv

Diaper Hasbara Dan

The author got the heading wrong, the Israeli Diaper Force is petrified of Hezbollah and Iran and that is why there is a stream of very scared false stories out of Occupied Palestine as the Zionist diaper heads know that Hezbollah has nothing to lose as Lebanon is fraying and they will unleash hell on Zionist cowards.

Peter Wallace

America ( Trump ) pulled out of an agreement that was working and put sanctions on Iran. Iran continued too abide by the agreement until it became clear that sanctions would not be lifted no matter what they did so they then started too enrich above the agreement level. Now America and roped in EU demand Iran returns to the agreement before sanctions and other matters will be looked at. So say Iran returns to the agreement and in ten years time they will still be asking WHEN are sanctions going to be removed. America pulled out so they must first remove sanctions , in steps if necessary aligned by steps by Iran , America is at fault and they need to fix their fault before progress can be made. Israel just wants war with Iran , by others preferably , but Israel needs to be told shut the fuk up or get obliterated instead.

Jim Allen

The agreement ended the instant US broke the agreement. Iran was instantly free to act as it pleased, but abided by the agreement for a considerable length of time, before making changes. Which were announced up front, and IAEA inspections are continuing uninterrupted.
Iran has no obligation to return to the terms of an agreement it didn’t break. US and other participants in the agreement have an obligation to back up their fat dishonorable mouths, lift the sanctions as agreed if they wish Iran to return to the now dead agreement.
Doing so as an act of good faith (ROFLMFAO) towards Iran, and wouldn’t hurt to acknowledge Iran’s strict adherence to the agreement given the EU countries cowing to US demands to breach their own trade agreement’s with Iran, and the piled on sanctions slapped on Iran after breaking the agreement. (which was entirely predictable) US Government was particularly despicable in it’s slapping sanctions on medical supplies to Iran in the middle of a health crisis, and humanitarian aid was being delivered by an endless string of Il-76 military cargo transport aircraft to any country in need. Including two NATO countries requesting aid from China, and Russia after being told by their NATO allies, “fuck off, no aid for you.” US Government action impressed no one, and reinforced it’s position as the most hated country on earth. US Government had no credibility to lose, and had further degraded itself, by sanctioning it’s own allies for not instantly complying with it’s outrageous demands that cost these countries even more Eurobucks in lost trade a year. With zero compensation for the billions a year in losses they sustained. Germany sustaining additional losses over it’s refusal to stop Nordstream 2, and rejecting US demands to buy lower quality gas at double the cost, with unreliable delivery, maintaining it’s supply of high quality, low cost gas from it’s reliable supplier. US conduct towards it’s clearly loyal allies as enemies with the world bearing witness to US Government dishonoring itself.
To the disgust, and embarrassment of the people. Most of us anyway. The only NATO countries that act as US allies are UK, and Turkey. With Turkey as US Government’s latest target for the ever popular “regime change.” Erdogan is a loose cannon, but he’s not a fool.
He’s well aware that Russia is likely to take Turkey in as an ally, should he forego his loose cannon way’s, that have brought him, and his country nothing but problems for his trouble. Erdogan has managed to piss off the leaders of two, possibly three major world powers, and EU despises his presence on earth. His country is in deep economic trouble, his ally is trying to kill him, and his best trading partner isn’t in any hurry to act on his behalf after the behavior he’s shown to agreements made. Painted his genius self into a corner, it appears, slow drying paint, too.
Meanwhile US Government is busy destroying the world’s ability to sustain life, as it insanely attempt’s to depopulate 90% of human life. With Geoengineering, bio-weapons, not vaccines, against a not deadly pandemic created over a fizzled out virus derivitive. Further turning the world against it. Even three generations of intense brainwashing of Western (and other) populations isn’t standing up to the arrogant sociopaths lunacy. Israel is Rothschilds yappy little Chihuahua, now without US Government protection, and too arrogant to understand it survives at the largess of Hezbollah, and Iran.

Peter Wallace

Fully agree with you. Trouble is is that the US has the biggest club and is always willing to use it as first option. Because they are a vast distance from attack and a very willing and friendly country to the north with little in the south to threaten them they feel well insulated from any sustained attack. They have bases everywhere and can project themselves to most parts of the world very quickly . They will not go down without a fight with tremendous cost too all parties.

Peter Wallace

is using a divide and fall system so they become in control of all of the ME with all opposing countries subjugated either by signing peace agreements or by destruction by war. As long as the bully of the ME is backed by the worlds bully they are impervious to any other view. Because of their mentality they will not hesitate to use the bomb in the belief that they can obliterate their enemies and survive themselves .

farbat

the zionists dont like to get hit because it destroys their illusion of safety and they only dare to hit out because they still think that others will be hold responsible in their place but others will only be hold responsible for their own actions similar like zionists will be hold responsible for their actions

Cromwell

Thats been the game changer,once the Israeli Cities could be hit as even Hamas showed the Israelis backed off.

farbat

the zionists dont know really how behave in a responsible manner which is why my believe that the wont survive 2022 is getting much much stronger by every single day that passes and they dont get what is going on really it seems

Israel wants to prevent “Iran from turning Syria into an Iranian base close to Israel, which could bring a radical strategic change in the situation. This is why we continue to shell Iranian bases so that they do not take control of the country.”
this is the real reality here isreal has failed to prevent the Iranian led resistance to establish a crescent that runs from Tehran to Beirut,and every day in slow steps a noose is tightening,We may expect a uk american backed conflict witch will not go nuclear none of the interested parties will expose themselves to universal sanctions such an act would incur, a return to the 1967 borders may be the best result for israel at worst a slow painful death by attrition.
It was funny to watch israel’s childish behavior in lebanon to look tough the new government pushed its luck resulting in a response that confused it, the antiquated but still very effective rockets were not the ones supplied by iran recently there was no SEE WHAT THE ARABS DO TO US POOR ISRAELIS there was Oh my god we must send help from the west and as a result they launched airstrikes against poor Hamas the whipping boy

Jim Allen

Iran has no such designs in the first place. The pretenders are attempting to project their values on to Iran, with this narrative. It fail’s for the cause Iran hold a completely different set of values to the pretenders. Something a blind man can see clearly. Iran will leave Syria when it’s presence is no longer needed. As will Hezbollah, and the other militia’s fighting in Syria’s defense. Russia will retain it’s military base’s and withdraw everything else, as it’s done in the recent past upon reaching it’s stated objectives. The West caused Russia’s return to Syria. Iran’s increased presence as well.

Icarus Tanović

Very well said. Exact my words. Bless you. Was thinking wxactly the same.

Stephen michael Basteed

hi Jim took me a while to find this” Back in July 2020, Tehran and Damascus signed a comprehensive military, defence, and security pact. The newspaper Raialyoum, cited by the Tehran Times, claimed the new agreement would allow Iran to deploy “at least two types of its local-made air defence missile systems” to Syria, the Bavar-373 and Khordad-3. According to Forbes, these systems could help Iran create “formidable Anti-Access/Area Denial (A2/AD) air defence ‘bubbles’ covering strategically important areas” in the Levant.”they are done with the western approach and Hezbollah have also acknowledged their support from Iran ,i do see this as a make or break moment and i think Iran have been forced to this point furthermore Russia are now actively intercepting israeli attacks Breaking Defence quoted Israeli sources who confirmed that the Buk-M2E had not been earlier used to intercept Israeli missiles. The magazine also suggested that the weapons were operated by Russian military personnel. interesting times.

CENTCOM held a major conflict asymmetrical war scenario pitting just Hezbollah against the Zionist regime in a no holds barred asymmetrical conflict involving missile and land engagements. Hezbollah cam out on top in all scenarios inflicting mortal blows to the Zionists and knocking out 90% of the airbases in the first blow and then paralyzing the Zionist economy, society and finally routing them by invading Northern Occupied Palestine. And if Iran and Syria, Hamas along with Iraq join in, then it is all over in a matter of days for the Zionists as most have dual passports and will simple flee.

The Objective

Time to do it, not just talk.

TEP

This article is out of balance. As farbat points out, it is The Resistance that now drives the Rules of Engagement, as underlined by the persistent stamina of Gaza in the recent Al Quds conflict that forced the zionists to seek ceasefire. It has become evident that Irael is likely to suffer an existential defeat in the next major regional escalation.
