Netanyahu: Israel To Deliver 'Crushing Blow' To Hezbollah If It uses Its 'Precision Rockets'

On September 20th, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed a “crushing blow” if Hezbollah uses its “precision rockets.”

Netanyahu’s promise came in response to the words of Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah.

Nasrallah said that despite Israel’s best efforts to prevent Hezbollah from obtaining advanced armaments, the militia possesses “precision and non-precision rockets and weapons capabilities.”

“No matter what you do to cut the route [flow of weapons from Iran to Hezbollah via Syria], the matter is over,” he further commented. He went on to warn Israel of a fate “it has never expected” if Israel launches a war against Lebanon.

Netanyahu lashed out strongly at Hezbollah’s claims: “I heard Hezbollah’s bravado. It came from the same person who said after 2006 [Second Lebanon War] that if he knew what Israel’s response would be to the kidnapping of our three soldiers, he would have thought consider twice whether to do it. So today I suggest that he think not twice but twenty times, because if he confronts us he will get a crushing blow that he cannot even imagine.”

Also on September 20th, at a Yom Kippur War memorial ceremony, Netanyahu also said that Israel will act with full force if war is imposed upon it: “We must make every effort to prevent war, but if it is imposed upon us, we will act with full force against those who would kill us.”

Following the latest Israeli airstrikes on targets in Syria, the Hezbollah leader gave a televised address, mostly talking about the group’s role and future in Syria.

“We will stay there (in Syria) even after the settlement in Idlib. Our presence there is linked to the need and the consent of the Syrian leadership,” Nasrallah said in an address broadcast on Lebanese media on September 19th.

The Hezbollah chief also insisted that “no one can force us out of Syria,” though he suggested they are reducing the size of their commitment of troops due to “the quietness of the fronts and less number of threats.”

Israeli leaders have said they will not allow “game-changing” weapons, such as guided missiles, to reach Hezbollah. Despite their vows, it does appear that Hezbollah has, in fact, received such weapons.

Nasrallah also reiterated the group’s support for Iran, which was hit by US sanctions after Donald Trump withdrew the US from the Iran Nuclear Deal. He also once again objected to Trump’s peace plan for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which is to be unveiled in September.

As reported by Sputnik, Hezbollah is a Lebanon-based Shia group founded in the 1980s, which has engaged earlier in several military conflicts with Israel. While it is classified as a terrorist organization by the United States and Israel, Hezbollah is recognized as a legitimate political party in Lebanon and enjoys close relations with Iran.

This all follows a rare admission from Israel that it was behind the September 17th attack that downed a Russian IL-20 jet, killing 15 troops.

In the video responding to Nasrallah, Netanyahu also spoke about Israel’s relationship with Russia, referring to the condolences he offered Russia’s President Vladimir Putin Tuesday in a phone call: “On my behalf of and on behalf of the citizens of Israel, I expressed my condolences for the deaths of 15 Russian air crew members whose plane was shot down by Syrian fire. I told him that the root of the problem was Iran’s attempt to use Syrian territory for attacks against Israel and to arm our enemies like Hezbollah. I told him that we have the right to self-defense, and yet it was very important to maintain the security coordination between Israel and Russia. I therefore decided to send the commander of the air force, Maj. Gen. Amikam Norkin, to Moscow, in order to continue to protect our citizens while maintaining cooperation between the two countries.”

    ” Netanyahu vowed a “crushing blow” if Hezbollah uses its “precision rockets.”

    So what Netanyahu ACTUALLY means is that ‘precision rockets’ will be able to hit Israeli military and political targets accurately and Netanyahu would prefer ‘inaccurate rockets’ to kill and maim Israeli civilians so that jews can play the tired old ‘victim card’ again. And again

    • You can call me Al

      That sums it up rather well – Bravo Florian. As stated above, I think that he is scared (as he should be).

      • Icarus Tanović

        He is, oh yes, very scared.

        • You can call me Al

          Really ?, so explain his ridiculous scare tactics now.

          • Icarus Tanović

            He wouldn’t even speak open on Hezbollah’s precise missiles. And many other things. Just carefully watch what Nasrallah had said three days ago.

          • You can call me Al

            Got it, thanks.

      • Val Shadowhawk

        You’re damn right Nutty’s scared. He had best watch his mouth. Hezbollah is more than capable of sending him and his fellow ‘israeli’ invaders back to the abyss, per Hassan Nasrallah’s prescient words of iron. And with precision.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      haha we heard the same Zionist nonsense in 2006. Today Hezbollah is a thousand times stronger and the mere fact that the ugly coward Nutter Yahoo has to respond to Sayyed Nasrallah and acknowledge Hezbollah power speaks for itself. The Zionist doper child killer IDF can only beat up and kill unarmed Palestinian women and children and won’t fare well against a battle tested Hezbollah. Hezbollah will be as ruthless as the Zionist cowards in the next round. Most of Hezbollah infrastructure and missiles are now spread over a much larger area and mostly underground.

    • Icarus Tanović

      Zionist Israel play that, game over and over again.

  • as

    It is doubtful Israel can get away with impunity on open conventional conflict with Hezbollah due to it’s close proximity with their border. Anything else of gross escalation that they bought with them in violation of international law would reward them with mirror response. In which the case any open conflict Israel faces will get them averse to violent belligerence for years to come.

  • AM Hants

    Who will they hide behind, when trying to deliver the blow?

    • FlorianGeyer

      Israelis who read and support anti zionist opinions in Haaretz I suspect AM.
      Oh and also the black jews who the paler Zionist jews do not like very much:)

      • You can call me Al

        Dont forget the Druze in the military (top ranks) and they have left after Nutty’s recent law on Israeli citizenship + vote.

        • FlorianGeyer

          I suspect that the Israeli Druze have seen the light after ISIS from Al Tanf murdered circa 250 Druze and took hostages a couple of months ago.

          The IDF Druze would have actually known about the Israeli support for ISIS on their borders.

          • You can call me Al

            Not really the point I was making, but fair play. I was specifically mentioning the Israeli citizenship bill.

            Yes, can you just imagine the furore from the US and EU in particular, if ANY other country in the world had introduced a de facto apartheid regime as Israel has recently done Al ?

            The US and EU would have been invading by now :)

          • You can call me Al

            South Africa…. and the US and UK was complimentary about it… gee, I wonder what we can make of that ?.

          • FlorianGeyer

            mmm. Hypocrisy perhaps Al :)

  • Sinbad2

    Israel has so polluted its own water supplies that it takes Lebanese water from the Litani river.
    To increase supplies to Israel, the Israelis bombed and destroyed irrigation dams and canals within Lebanon. 10,000 acres of irrigated farmland has been rendered useless, and 23 villages destroyed by the Israeli bombing. The UN guards the land south of the Litani river for Israel under UN resolution 1701, protecting the pipeline Israel has built from the river to Israel, to allow Israel to steal Lebanese water.

    Israel would steal all the viable farmland in Lebanon, and Syria if they could.
    Only Hezbollah stops Israeli aggression.

  • Lena Jones

    Netanyahu means he will crush Lebanese ‘unarmed civilians’ – mass murdering civilians is the israeli jew’s specialty.

    • Sinbad2

      In the 2006 war, because Israel could not defeat Hezbollah, Israel bombed civilians in Beirut to pressure Hezbollah. Like their American partners, targeting civilians is as you stated, their specialty.

    • Attrition47

      The zionists are’t Jews, they are lying, antisemite bastards.

      • Icarus Tanović

        That’s so so so right.

      • v76

        Correct, a real anti semite would be someone that hates Palestinians as they are the true Israelites… not the anglo zionist imposters.

      yes but not this time.

  • Lena Jones

    Precision missiles plus Iranian-made S-300 are already in Hezb hands (to be used when the time is right for dealing a death blow to israel). Precision missiles means the Dimona could be struck and israel emptied of klepto-coward-colonialist jewcons overnight. No wonder Bibi the bib is panicking.

          • Lena Jones

            I see that “clueless and stupid” are you fave words, you pompous twat! And ironically, they perfectly describe YOU who is just too “clueless and stupid” to know of the activated (and failing) jewish Yinon Plan. And you think you’ve got me pegged with your “irani lena” lol – well if I had to choose, I’d rather be an “irani” than a jewy cunt like you.

          • Free man

            Stupidity and rudeness are a bad combination.

            So you think ‘smart’ people are never rude, you passive-aggressive bore?! LOL! That’s all I need: a freaking jewdizoid cog’s inconsequential opinion!

            You’re also clueless about the history of Iran. The country wasn’t ‘kidnapped’ – it freed itself from foreign control and ongoing theft of its resources.

          • Free man

            Nice diagnosis all the way from Scotland.
            My parents were born in Iran but can not visit there, because of the mullahs’ regime and because of ignoramuses like you in the West who support them.

          • scott_ewing

            oh so you’re just one of those Iranians that misses life in Iran under the Shah.

            You argu only for the sake of arguing. As if you have any idea what’s going on in Iran.
            Life in Iran is terrible in many ways. $ 1 was worth 70 Rials ,before the revolution today $ 1 is worth 180 thousand Rials . A regular employee earns 300,000 rials a day. You do the math .

          • scott_ewing

            … and you don’t think that SANCTIONS have anything to do with that?

            – idiot –

          • Free man

            That’s exactly what the mullahs regime says. All because of the US, not because of corruption, mismanagement, funding of militias throughout the Middle East, etc.
            Keep thinking that you are smart and continue to argue about topics that you have no idea about.

          • scott_ewing

            In 1953 – Iran was overrun by a western sponsored coup. “CIA admits role in 1953 Iranian coup | The Guardian”
            In 1979 – Iran kicked a western installed dictator (the shah) out on his ass.
            I think you are attempting to perpetuate an orchestrated litany of lies about Iran ‘Free man’.

            It was insensitivity on my part.

      • Concrete Mike

        How can you call yourself free man, when all you spew is fascist bs??

        • Free man

          If I notice that Irani Lena is stupid and clueless, and writes it , is it considered to be a fascist statement?

          • Concrete Mike

            Well you tie iran with bad, thats the first indication. Wtf have the people of iran done to you?

            Are you a marine? Were you in khobar towers?

            You denigrating of another poster and adding the irani adjective is quite a fascist sign actually.

            Iran is different and does not bow down, therfore it must be evil!!! Thats your logic right??

            You dont have to agree to what she says, butbwhen your only retort is to call someone irani….thats pretty weak.

            Most of western society has gradually fell into corporate fascism, you probably never noticed. I aint calling you a nazi btw, im calling you a fascist.

          • Free man

            Lena expresses opinions that are mainly expressed by Iranian supporters of the mullahs regime, which is a fascist regime, this is why I think she is an Iranian who uses a Western name, a habit I don’t like.
            I have nothing against Iranians, but I am against the mullahs regime that has kidnapped Iran and has been systematically destroying it since then.
            I do not think you know what Fascism is.

          • Concrete Mike

            Ah yes anothee buzz word.mullahs.
            Lets look at the supreme courts of usa and compare it to iran.
            In usa supreme justices are appointed for life.

            In iran, half is appointed and the other half is elected. They are not for life posts either.
            Half the judiciary are your favorite chums, the “mullahs”, and the other half is judges.

            This appears to be a far more reasonable than lifetime appointments does it not?

            So with the patriot act, nsa spying on everyone, including us right now, your telling me usa is not fascist yet iran is?
            With how america and the west see themselves better than everyone else, your telling me there not fascist?

            Where voices of dissent are swiftly silenced and suppressed, that our press is in bed with the intelligence community, this same intelligence community that is unaccountable to the public, oh trust us they say…same for the press, yet if you question them your a conspiracy theorist?

            No…it is WE in the west that are fascist, that impose on other countries.

            You can sat iran is being held hostage all you want, its still better than under the shah.

            Why did we overthrow Dr. Mossadegh in 53???

            Its WE in the west the problem, not iran.

            Sincerely yours, an unwittingly fascist canadian.

            Well said Mike.

            Well spoken. Well done!

          • Free man

            1. To compare the American judicial system to a judicial system in an oppressive dictatorship like Iran, is ridiculous. Iran is only second to China in executions.
            Where would you recommend your son to live ? in a country like Iran or in a country like the United States? (Indeed my parents had to make this decision).
            2. The US erred in overthrowing the democratic government in Iran, as it was wrong in Vietnam and Iraq. I hope they learned the lesson.
            3. The Iranian people have been suppressed for 40 years. It will not last alot long.

          • John Whitehot

            3. The iranian people have been suppressed in the 50ies, by the US and the UK which performed a coup against the democratically elected leader Mossadegh.

            From then on, the best hope of the iranian, and all the other peoples of the world, is doing exactly the opposite of whatever the US and Israel want them to do.

            1. in Iran of course.

            2. The United States have not learned any lesson, as they are still trying to overthrow governments, like Syria by the way.

          • Free man

            If the United States wanted to topple Assad, it would have happened a long time ago.
            Allow me not to believe it the sincerely of Answer # 1.
            “From then on….” Such sweeping statements are never true.

          • John Whitehot

            “If the United States wanted to topple Assad, it would have happened a long time ago.”

            in another dimension, it could be.

            in this one, the United States spent billions to fullfill that objective and failed because other parties resisted, including, above all, the Syrian people, who sent the US attempt to “free them” to vigorously fuck off.

            it’s not that things “always go like the US want” like you imply, actually you used the example of Vietnam in another comment above – this, together with the consideration on “if the US wanted..” makes you clearly suspect of sophism at zionist service.

            “From then on….” Such sweeping statements are never true.”

            only if they don’t suit you.

          • Free man

            You assume that the US doesn’t want the Assad regime and that it thinks it has an alternative.
            I think that it has no alternative, and therefore it doesn’t want the Assad regime to fall.
            Still I think the US should intervene a lot less in the affairs of other countries.

          • John Whitehot

            the US does not have any alternative at tryign toppling Assad because that’s what israel wants.

            the only thing that prevents Assad to be toppled by the US is the other nations resisting, putting the US in the position to say “we can’t start ww3 over Assad” to Israel.

          • Free man

            1. World War III will not begin so easily. Not because of Syria anyway
            2. I do not think that Israel had an interest in toppling Assad, contrary to your opinion.

          • John Whitehot

            1.it will not begin if the US understands when to back down.
            2.Israel never hid that it’s final desired state in the Syrian war is a Syria without Assad.

            idk if you think you’re gonna try wearing me down making me repeat the same shit all over, if that’s all that you want it’s a losing tactic, one that always come from propagandists who already know that they are defeated and try to prevent others knowing it.

  • John Mason

    Another chest beating dumb comment from Netanyah, precision weapons are exactly what it says, they are precise in targeting and delivery, so if Hezbollah were to confront the jews they would use those weapons under the control of trained personnel conveniently positioned to take out strategic targets with luck Netanyahu could be one.

    • as

      That’s not what they actually so scared of. Hezbollah gaining experience in running Air defense and gaining capability in that regard is what they feared so much in Syria.
      Then again they wouldn’t be able to stop resistance no matter how bad they escalates their genocide due to billions of arms pouring into Syria from back channel no less (operators involved would spread it’s channel uses and their smuggling experience)

  • IggyBundy

    Would that Netanyahu would limit his attacks in response to actual attacks against Israel. The ME would be a much better place.

    • Free man

      These are political games.
      Nasrallah must please his masters in Tehran and occasionally threaten Israel.
      And Netanyahu is preparing for the elections and wants to look strong in the eyes of his right-wing voters.

      • BlueInGreen

        “Please his masters in Tehran”, oh boy…..

        Hezbollah and Iran are allies not a master slave thing. Hezbollah doesn’t want war with Israel becuase they’d like to see Lebanon not be bombed and the Israelis don’t want to face a competent enemy that can hurt it badly and expose it. Iran is just helping a friend, the same way it did in Syria.

        • Free man

          Hezbollah is a sectoral militia that receives its funding from Iran and is loyal only to Iran.
          This is the model that Iran is trying to establish in Syria.

          • BlueInGreen

            Wrong about the loyalty part. Hezbollah goal isn’t to wholly serve Iran, its main goal is to protect Lebanon , they’ve shown this time and time again by going out of their way to help the Lebanese military who failed to kick ISIS out from border areas that they were hiding in. Going into Syria to fight Terroist who would have undoubtedly gone to Lebanon if Syria fell.

            You’re completely mixing it up. Your thinking is way to shallow, just becuase Iran is Shia and Hezbollah is Shia doesnt mean this is a master and slave relationship. In truth. If Israel were to directly attack Iran Hezbollah could make the sovereign decision to not help

            Oh I bet they will love to work….keep them away from Guns & Kids though….they are used to shoot kids….

  • frankly

    It’s like having a bully that shaves in the grade schoolyard. Sooner or later the little kids ban together after taking lots of injustice and prevail. Honestly Israel, what do you have to offer the world? More of the same?

  • zman

    This is very typical. Don’t address the issue at hand. The issue is not your incessant bombing and killing, especially of unarmed women and children en masse (what the rest of the world calls genocide). The subject is your underhanded dealings, as if you didn’t know. They will continue to harp on why they ‘must’ attack the rest of the world. The fact that they had a deal with the Russians to prevent military clashes/issues and they effectively reneged on it, is a non-sequitur to the Zionist liars. Yes, they are good at obfuscation. It is one of the main legs of their doctrine. Continue to harp on Iran, Hezbollah and IGNORE your treachery. Oh, yes, you adhered to the deal, you informed Russian assets…1 minute before the attack. But that abrogates the ‘spirit’ of the agreement, does it not? Ahhh, but they do not talk about that, do they. All they will do is continue to blather about Hezbollah/Iran…not their duplicity and, dare I say it, backstabbing? This is the Israeli approach to everything. I dare say they won’t be talking about the French firing missiles or the British planes in a holding pattern …as if waiting for a signal, either. Surely this wasn’t an ambush that didn’t come off right, huh? Oh and if it was(?!!) Israel surely had nothing to do with it. Yeah, the Russians are stupid, just keep on poking that bear. All in all, just another day in the life of criminals and their devious underhanded dealings. Yes, Nutsack, that smell is you shitting in your own nest.

      it’s the problem of most “extraordinarily intelligent” people.
      often they believe that others are “extraordinarily intelligent” too.

    Basically Israel will retaliate IF Hezbollah ever uses it’s modern, precision guided missile arsenal – and NOT before so as not to become a sitting duck to those same missiles. This statement is not issued from the position of strength – maybe for the first time in 50 years. This is admission of defeat. Bibi confessed and confirmed several facts that Israelis choose to ignore and/or deny until today:
    1. That Hezbollah indeed has a large stock of next generation missiles and by extension Iran too
    2. That Israel doesn’t have appropriate answer to precision guided ordnance – i.e. that Iron Dome doesn’t work
    3. That a large stockpile of guided missiles is the best deterrent and a guarantee of lasting peace for Israeli adversaries in the region –
    Bibi just advised all his enemies and non-friends in the Middle East (and that means EVERYONE) to start building their stocks. Come Monday, Iranian and Russian missile production companies will be swamped by fresh orders. Bibi should charge a hefty commission/kick-back for his marketing efforts – and it wouldn’t be the first time either…

    The last “crushing” blow to Hezbollah was a defeat for the Israeli Army. Now, Hezbollah is much better trained and armed. How does Israel expect to defeat Hezbollah? Because of Hezbollah, Israel will never again invade Lebanon. That is called checkmate because the days of Israeli aggression impunity are over. Shalom.

    Israel depends on her nuclear bombs. One day the terror will end like the ones before it Power belongs to the OWNER of the universe

  • Ray

    I would love some kind person, to deliver a nice blow job to the Zionist leaders.

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    The question is simple. Is he sure if Hezbollah finally attack israel with rockets and known that israel will retaliate with all it has, will they stupid not to direct their missiles where israel will not matter if it retaliate after or not because it will not longer exist?

    Hezbollah has enough missiles and is not alone if they decide to attack and israels famous iron dom and the rest they have has less than 15% success proven. Only a moron or a suicidal person base on today’s reality farts as the israelis fart right now. They are in a glass house and keep throwing rocks.

  • John Whitehot

    why does netanhyau always behave exactly like the people he can’t stand so much is often a mistery, better left to those familiar with him.

    “imma punch you mug!”
    “and imma punch yours twice!”
    “then imma kick ya!”

    and so on.

  • Smaug

    Dear South Front: Cutting past all the trash talk is the fact that Hezbollah is relying on deterrence because Iran is far off and the IDF outclasses them in every way.

    • Feudalism Victory

      Much likes israels nuclear deterrence against the wider world.

  • In the 2006 war Israel killed over 1000 Lebanese civilians vs about 250-500 fighters. Whilst Hezbollah only killed about 44 Israeli civilians vs 121 IDF soldiers. So I’m guessing that Nutanyahoo means they’ll deliver “another crushing” blow to innocent Lebanese civilians.

    • BlueInGreen

      It’s worse than that. The messages from various Israeli officials regarding retaliatory measures against Lebanon in a war have been nothing short of the complete destruction and or massive damage to all and any Lebanese infrastructure deemed to be Hezbollah affiliated.

      Since they can’t win against Hezbollah soldier for soldier, they’ll settle for the next bad thing. Simply bomb the living hell out of Lebanon until the Lebanese turn against their own in an effort to stop the bombing. But this isn’t a perfect world and that scenario would be ideal for Israel.

      Hezbollah today is much much more capable than it was in 2006 and the sheer troop count is bigger as well. Note that these aren’t rag-tag militias but soldiers with years of combat in rural, plains and urban warfare. Their track record has been nothing but impressive.

      • georgeking

        I do not think for a minute, Hezbollah has any intention of keeping the fighting it Lebanon and will have boots on the ground all over the front lines of Israel.

        Taking a page from Russia in WWII, be within a hand grenade’s range of your enemy to prevent aerial bombings.

        • Feudalism Victory

          Yes a little martial spirit and a “smart” use of ones life will help much.

  • Icarus Tanović

    What the hell is Satan Yahoo is considered about? After all they have that, so much prized Iron dome. Or they, don’t…

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    this idiot still believe that he can hit them but they can not hit him and wipe them out.

  • Icarus Tanović

    Now, Satan Yahoo, think about Hezbollah capabilities… They’ve beat your ass back in 2006,and crack open your prised army, so what do you think what is gonna be now?

  • georgeking

    I suspect if Hezbollah decides, it must use its rockets, precision or not on Isreal, there will be little for Israel to hit back with, except it subs perhaps.

    I am sure the next war will be far more intense and all lost Lebanese and Syrian Territories will be liberated.

    Samuel Colt’s .44 revolver was known as the ‘equalizer’ back in the day. On the grand scale, missiles perform the same function today. For example rather than building up a huge massively expensive conventional army/airforce/navy to counter the US/NATO threat, Russia focused on advanced missile technology which pretty much negates the US/NATO’s apparent advantage of having a huge conventional army/airforce/navy.
