Lebanon's Army Chief Urged "Full Readiness" To Face "Threats Of The Israeli Enemy And Its Violations"

On November 21, Lebanon’s army chief, General Joseph Aoun, urged “full readiness” at the border to face the “threats of the Israeli enemy and its violations.”

Additionally, General Aoun called on the troops to stay vigilant for the “good implementation” of UN resolution 1701 to “preserve stability” in the border area.

The “cessation of hostilities” resolution ended the 2006 Lebanese war between Israel and Hezbollah. Since then, the two sides have avoided a major conflict. However, the tensions have remained high.

The army chief’s statement came a day after Lebanese President Michel Aoun appeared to defend Hezbollah as necessary to resist Israel, after an Arab League statement accused the group of terrorism.

“Israeli targeting still continues and it is the right of the Lebanese to resist it and foil its plans by all available means,” the President’s office quoted Aoun as saying.

    Of course, the ISISrael will try, and all this propaganda against Hezb have an reason, we now slide into an MSM witch pimps “Jewish holocaust” survivors, an mass, Hitleri/Hitlera everywhere, and this usually comes some time before ISISrael will and is about, to do something.

    I suspect they will shoot into Lebanes territory, since Hezb, is an Lebanes Org.
    Yup, the “excuse” is ready to be used, and I suspect, not confirmed in any way, Saudis are on their way out of this mess, but not ISISrael, and the bonkers Wankees, and the Empire has the tools it needs, and of course, the EUroCrauts will be on this, to fight, of course, terrorism.
    Watch the latest involvements, of the French ehh….. opening, MaCrony, to an Maybe, and our very own creature from hell, Muti Morekill, crawl in front of the Tribes men, and they call them self, Europeans.

    But, again, its Trumpstein whom is the one that will eventually be the tipping point of this, ISISrael will never attack anyone if the UssA isn’t on board, and that, is the problem, and the constant pussy footing from the Russians in eastern Syria, time to vaporize the heads, foreign or not, just remove them from this earth.

    Interesting times indeed.

      There’s nothing Jewish about zionism, which is why zionists can be so cynical in their exploitation of Jewish European survivors of one of the nazi genocides, as they perpetrate their own against Palestinians.

      • Freespirit

        European Jews are ASHKENAZI, by their own definition, and they were the REAL NAZIS. Please note the LAST 4 letters of Ashkenazi – TRUTH about themselves, “Hidden in Plain Sight”,the TALMUDIC way: TALMUD, Baba Kamma 113a. Jews may use lies (“subterfuges”) to circumvent a Gentile.

        Bit by Bit, are some things happening to save Humanity, against the
        Zionist Jew MAFIA? https://geopolitics.co/2017/11/21/we-are-told-to-prepare-for-earthshaking-events-next-year/

        Be good now and don’t get in our way, TROLL

      I like the game the Russians are playing! Very careful!
      I disagree with what u said about “Saudi’s are on their way out of this mess”! This is very far from reality! If anything, they are digging themselves into a much deeper grave! Killing and arresting their princes for good reasons or bad (political and economic gain) does not solidify your position as the Crown Prince! The Kingdom has never been so poor and its people are used to a certain lifestyle! Iran would love to fund a revolution within Saudi Arabia and its Shiite population (20 to 25%) is also a BIG problem for KSA! Yemeni houthi’s are a big problem also! Qatar (switched sides) and Bahrain who has 80% Shiia population is a big problem!
      KSA is in DEEP Shit which is EXACTLY why they have openly teamed up with Israel! This just goes to show how DESPERATE they are! Israel is also desperate because they have asked for permanent US bases and faces to be stationed in Israel (this has never been asked before)!

      The “remove Assad” and “back a pipeline from Qatar to transit through Syria and reinforce the US Petro dolla” FAILED! It has completely backfired in their face because of Russia and Iran (mainly Russia). Why do u think KSA is now saying they will buy Russian arms and Passenger jets? They are fucking PETRIFIED! They are trying to bribe Russia to stay out of the next proxy war!
      So ur comment “Saudi Arabia is almost out of this” is utterly incorrect! They are the exact opposite! They are in Deep, Deep shit!
      Revolution, wars they can’t afford, surrounded, houthi’s have missiles that can hit KSA’s capital and airbases! They are FOOKED!

    This call for “full readiness” is a nothing burger until there are troop movements. It’s going to be interesting to see what UNIFIL will do. I’m guessing they’ll be used as target practice by both sides.

  • Serious

    It’s time to use this american armed cessna !!! XD.

    Without Hezbollah, Lebanon is the weakest country in the world.

    • Rodger

      I’m pretty sure they could take the Vatican in a fight.

      • Serious

        Lebanon should ask Iran some weapons if they don’t want to build.
        I mean, Lebanon is next to the most evil and dangerous country in the world.

        You better have weapons to defend.

        • Rodger

          Nah, having weapons is very dangerous when dealing with the US and Israel.

        • BlueInGreen

          I believe Iran had said in a statement recently that Hezbollah’s weapon depots in Lebanon are literally overflowing with missiles and other weapons and sending more would be a waste of the weapons, not to mention Hezbollah probably now has a large and sophisticated network of missile production factories across it’s territories allowing for more arms to be replenished if a shooting war with Israel starts.

  • Leon Auguste

    They look so sad and miserable… sitting ducks!

    • Turbofan

      Not when they are backed by Hezbollah

      • Leon Auguste

        That’s a point I guess

  • Brad Isherwood

    When is Lebanon going to confront Israhell in the UN to cease violating Lebanese Airspace?

    How about Putin/Lavrov step up and support that in the UN
