Preparations For War? Israel Closed Airspace On Border With Lebanon Following Trump Threats To Strike Iran

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

On September 16, Israeli authorities announced that they had closed airspace in the 6km-deep area on the contact line with Lebanon. The airspace will be closed until September 17 morning.

The announcement came following two days of warmongering  by mainstream media and top US officials that were blaming Iran for a drone strike carried out by Yemen’s Houthis on Saudi oil infrastructure on September 14.

The US as well as Israel and Saudi Arabia blame Iran for the inability of the Saudi-led coalition to achieve a military victory in its war on Yemen. US President Donald Trump even threatened to carry out strikes on Iran in response to the supposed ‘Iranian agression’ against Saudi Arabia.

Earlier, similar idea was promoted by hawkish US senator Lindey Graham.

Another factor playing to the growth of tensions in the Middle East is agressive policy of Israel supported by a large-scale propaganda campaign in Israeli and US mainstream media.

On the one hand, the Israeli leadership blames Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas for threatening Israeli interests on a daliy basis. On the other hand, Tel Aviv continues its expansionist policy in the region declaring plans to annex more Palestinian areas, launch a ground military operation in the Gaza Strip, and even indirectly claiming responsibility for a series of explosions at positions of Iran-alled militias in Iraq and Iran.

The Israeli actions and attitude are even further sharpened by the ongoing election campaign to Israel’s parliament. Therefore, top Israeli politicians and political parties are competing in war-likey rhetoric and promises to defeat all ‘Israeli enemies’.

In the current conditions, the Middle East looks like a powder keg that is ready to exploit at any moment. And there are powers sides that could be interested in such an explosion to achieve own political and geoeconomic interests.

    • Jens Holm

      I see they do and do it very well.

  • Boycott-Israel!

    HAHAHA Isisrathell is literally at war with every single nation in mid east, except their cousin Saudis and other ass-lickers-wahabists.

    • Saso Mange

      I am not sure who is worse, Saudis or Israelis.

      • MikeH

        What is the difference between the two?

        • Jens Holm

          If You dont know, then You could read about it, if You understand, what You read :)

          • roland

            Why do you speak broken English sometimes then at other times perfect English

          • Saso Mange

            alter ego disorder? hehehe just joking :)

          • Jens Holm

            You can say that. Trying to be an arab or turk thinking in their laguages and then translate very limited Lawers and Doctors languge, makes no sense in my dayli life.

            I speak and write “dayli” english mainly influed by Britts and USA much better as well as I can. Im no teacher but just a user. Here I have to limit a lot of things as well as change some too.

            Actually my first teacher was blamed to learn us “Liverpool English”, and we did listen to and translated Beatles music :) Later on the speaking became more correct.

            I do improve but onlt just a little.

          • Saso Mange

            Only important thing is that people understand each other, grammar is for teachers anyways :D

          • Jens Holm

            1) There are several reasons. I read alot and then I also write a lot and sometimes are too busy.
            2) Normally I writen and speak American/Anglo English but most Turks and arabs dont understand how we spell a lot different from, what we do 4Yu.

            3) we also use SMS and MMS a lot, and it sometimes effect my spellings.

            But I will add, that most people do understand, what I am writing, as well as I often try again, when people dont understand.

          • AlexMg

            Perfect english? Jens?? Probably random copy-paste from some NATO site 😒

        • Saso Mange

          Good point :D Ideologically and on many aspects they are pretty much the same. Brits made both of them. But similarity ends there.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Both are equal evils created by the devious British gits. The whole idea is to keep the Arab world divided and loot its resources. Lately, Iran and Hezbollah have thrown a major spanner in the plan.

      • Boycott-Israel!

        Both are bastard sons of Saitan.

        • Saso Mange

          Iran emerges as only honorable entity in that region, along with others who form resistance to Zionist aspirations.

      • Sokrates

        albanians.

        • Saso Mange

          There is no reason to hate Albanians lol

    • Real Anti-Racist Action

      On the attack on the Saudi oil empire.
      Want to know who knew the attack was coming? Just find out who shorted the Saudi stock market right before the attack and then covered the short when the market went down.

      • Jens Holm

        blur

      • Saso Mange

        If Saudis have enormous reserves in tanks then this situation will strengthen both Saudi and US economy. Why?
        Because US is now ‘stabilizing’ the market with it’s reserves and the money keeps flowing but this time it flows on much higher rate.
        They are not dumb to allow large shifts in the market because it will most certainly strengthen both Russia and Iran, nations which are falsely accused of wrongdoing by the West for years.

    • Jacob Wohl

      at war and still happen to defeat every one of their opponents! do not test the resolve and determination of the IDF

      • RichardD

        The baby rapers Yinon plan regime change terrorists have lost in Syria. Clearing the IDF out of the occupied territories is on the agenda.

        • Saso Mange

          I do hope that when SAA finish the job with what’s left they will go to Golan Heights too. Assad did announce something along those lines in 2017.

      • cristi cristikosk

        wow do you have internet in the cell?

      • Saso Mange

        Better keep calm or Mr. Nasrallah will have to prepare some more surprises. How many Sa’ar class corvettes does Israel have? Not enough i would say.

      • Concrete Mike

        At war and still treat black jews like shit, you and your kind cant even treat your supposed brothers right, you think you can take on anyone ??

        Lol bring it on big boy.

      • J Ramirez

        You and your IDF can suck on the same dick, any attack on Iran and there will be no ISISrael, death to the terrorist state. Now what’s that quote you made a few weeks back ” Take that” ya, ya up yours you Terrorist supporting Jew. I used to think Hitler war a bad man, now I see he was a very intelligent person and had the right idea, end the Jews and we can live in peace. As far as the master race, Well , we all have issues ;}

    • Jens Holm

      But fact says their borders almost er covered by Egypt and Jordan.

      Litteraly they have no enemies of importance as well as long as Iran is kept low.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The filthy Zionists are scared since Hezbollah showed some new weaponry yesterday. This is just a stunt, the filthy stained bedding Zionist rats are in no position to wage a war that will destroy them.

      https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/485f19345f06324f0291c1ce599fd58c394f216de04a8221102606f2d0a0dac0.jpg

      • Boycott-Israel!

        The problem is that they will wage war anyway, knowing well that they will go directly into hell if they die.

      • Saso Mange

        They are able to wage war but only ”to the last American soldier”.

        They are especially vulnerable these days because no Israeli soldier has experience on the ground where Hezbollah is battle trained and has many veterans.

    • cechas vodobenikov

      false–they coordinate w Egypt and Jordan. they r most hostile to Syria and Iran

    • Jens Holm

      I take it again with Cochas: Israel is not in war with all nations in ME. And very important, they are not with Egypt as well as Jordan.

      I even see Saudis are supporting them some for own reasons because Saudis are not allowed to support ISIS.

      And there is a little extra there. Saudis also seemes to support Lebanese – non Hesbollas.

      Much like a very illiteraly comment from You. The artickle above even start with good maps for it.

      • Boycott-Israel!

        Zionist is at war with everyone who believes in God Almighty and his prophet Jesus son of Mary.

        • Jens Holm

          Not at all. We only condem and work against what we think are their bad parts.

      • Boycott-Israel!

        You seem to have soft spot for the enemies, why? These are evil people who have no mercy on women and babies.

  • opet ja

    Hah and Iran just grabbed another tanker near Hormuz strait. This time it is from UAE lol lol

    • Jens Holm

      Civile hostage taking.

  • IbnAsokin

    “waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!” ….kinda says it all, doesn’t it…

    • FlorianGeyer

      This can be translated from the US ‘Orwellian’ language to really mean :- ‘ We ( the US) are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to how many squillions of US dollars they will pay us to proceed with an attack on Iran’.

  • FlorianGeyer

    When we consider that it takes months to investigate the causes of a moderate traffic accident in the West these days, it is always suspicious when the West blames complex military incidents on their ‘ pre-chosen’ suspects within hours, or even minutes :)

    • Tommy Jensen

      9/11 template.

    • Jens Holm

      There we go again.

      It reminds me at the sunken KURSK.

    • Concrete Mike

      Its been the case for 20 years my friend. Its all a show.

      • FlorianGeyer

        And a pretty poor show at that, Mike :)

  • Ray Douglas

    It would not surprise me if Israeli intelligence were aware of the Houthis attack and launched a simultaneous attack. Look at who gains the most? Not really the Houthis, most certainly not the Iranians, but with the US warmongers looking for an attack on Iran who else stands to gain?

    • FlorianGeyer

      I agree, and I made the same comment yesterday elsewhere.
      If we think the same, so will many others as well, Ray.

      It is the Zionist way of fighting wars.

      • Ray Douglas

        There is also the issue of US oil companies who are engaged in Fracking. 28 have filed for bankruptcy this year. As a consequence of Saturdays bombing the price of shares in these same companies has soared. Stranger things have happened.

        • Jens Holm

          Well, thats a relative. Aramco is an american company as well.

          Next venezuela did it supported by the russians there :)

      • Concrete Mike

        Whats wrong with giving credit to the yemeni army for a well planned operation?

        No offense florian, but isnt this projecting israeli boogymen( they are comparable to horse manure) under every rock?

        All this speculation is playing into israel’s hand.

        The yemeni army did this operation, and they did a hell of a good job. As they have been doing since 2015 with all of the west against them.

        Give credit where credit is due.

        And now time for a pint of pilsner.

        • FlorianGeyer

          I totally agree with you and that is why it is important to look at all angles. Such an attack is as embarrassing to the US and UK as a major security company losing a ton of gold from its depot , after promising the customer that every thing is 100% covered.

          The Houthis have demonstrated a strategic thinking that has thus far defended against the wealthiest nations in the Western world.

          The Houthis have been out gunned BUT have still managed to prevail in the majority of battles. Just as Money does not buy class, money does not buy courage either, and the Houthis have both in spades.

      • Ray Douglas

        It is also very suspicious when the Saudis say that there was no fatalities or injuries if my memory serves me right. I would assume that this is a 24 hours a day operation with hundreds of workers yet no deaths or injuries. Perhaps they knew in advance what was about to happen.

        • FlorianGeyer

          Or that the Saudi foreign (slave) workers would not be missed by anyone of any consequence.

    • Jens Holm

      I dont see that at all. It only can be seen as a provocation for more.

      None knows that a Houti attack at all as well.

  • cristi cristikosk
    • Tommy Jensen

      The first picture was the local Pharisees and the always ruthless and bloodthirsty sheeple.

      The last picture was again the local Pharisees establishment in Washington in collaboration with their whipping boy Mossad, backed up by the passive ruthless American sheeple.

          • Uncle Meat

            To be fair, many modern Christians are Zionists and then you have even weirder sects, who knows what they believe.

          • Saso Mange

            You should educate yourself in subject before replying because stupidity make you look funny.
            Hint : John Hagee, Benjamin Freedman, Pastor J. Anderson and poison which comes out of US Christian Zionist evangelical community which has gotten foothold over academia all across European nations.

            Also, show my ”other” stupidity if you can please? Funny little man, God gave him tongue and he thinks he is Socrates.

  • Kilgore Trout

    ameri3ka what a joke!! with pompous the ass hat spouting garbage, lol take the first shot. I dare you! I’d love to see an aircraft carrier doubling as a reef in the Persian Gulf!!

    • maxii priestt

      they can’t play that kind of game. they know where their limits are. i know the americunt child killers are devilishly stupid, but i really doubt they can be that stupid. they can’t even play a game of chicken with the Houthis, they want to play a game of do or dare with Iran?! that’s collective suicide if there is any other thing to say.

      • Selbstdenker

        How one could think of winning a game of do or dare against someone believing in getting 72 virgins when dying?

    your big mouth is only good for one thing.

  • Sparrow

    heh heh…israel closed it’s airspace on border with lebanon…to itself?

    • Jens Holm

      They are not as stupid as You.

      Someone like might be better. Israelien airplace will be in danger by missiles incl cruiser ones both ways. They also might deploy more missiles there and try to hide them.

      • Lena Jones

        Sure looks like YOU are the “stupid” one – and being a jew cock-sucker yourself, of course you’re “stupid”! Point is that as usual, the coward jew over-dramatizes and puffs up like a puffer fish: full of hot air and not much else. The freaking Leb-israel borders (land, sea and air) are PERMANENTLY CLOSED LOL! You must be seriously “stupid” to fall for jew fictional dramas. You must also be too “stupid” to realize that you’re being fed the usual ‘politics of fear’ that is churned at the jew populations 24/7.

        • Jens Holm

          MIne i a strictly military oppinion.

          You alwatys write things like people are afraid or cry. Most of the time O dont see that at all.

          Israeliens are not in the fear and cry mode as Your primitive one. Its very different level. And their level is to protect all Israeliens well – And they are able to.

          Much like people on the other side of those borders has fear and cry for dying unprotected for nothing.

          My point was a military one, whatever its part of the election campaign today or not.

          • Lena Jones

            Blah blah you’re so freaking “stupid” AND a born coward. I’ll repeat: the Leb-israeli border is PERMANENTLY CLOSED (land, sea and air – and by israel, as it happens). So why do the “stupid” jew leaders tell their stupider brainwashed jew public that the skies are “closed”, when in fact THEY ARE NEVER OPEN, HAVE NEVER BEEN OPEN SINCE MAY 1984?!!!! The answer to this is simple: jew leaders practice the ‘politics of fear’ on their stupid jew citizens, then present themselves as the ‘saviors’ of the jews. Geddit?! You wanna swallow the stupid jew fear-turds served up all day to jews, then you go ahead and do just that – go eat some jew shit till you’re well stuffed lol!

          • Sparrow

            Do you mean Israliens? That is a good one…thanks :)

      • Sparrow

        Is that why they violate Lebanon border on a daily basis? Is that why they use Lebanese airspace to strike in Syria? Is it OK for iaf, idf, and mdf (moron defense forces) to violate sovereign states to bomb bomb away? Funny how the shoe fits jenny…

  • verner

    israel is a constant reason for disagreements and aggressions and to simplify life in the middle east for all of them indigenous people, discontinue the illegal occupation by the jews of palestine, now. send them packing now, they have no right to be there. and if they leave voluntarily fine and if not – the hard and brutal way.

    • Jens Holm

      You will use stamps for it :)

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    The Saudis and Israelis attacked all of us Americans on 9/11.
    I demand the US begin an air campaign against Israeli and Saudi Arabia!!!

  • Jacob Wohl

    Israel 100% prepared to assist the US in annihilating IRGC/hezbollah terrorists. The countdown begins… USA preparing massive strikes against Iran all over Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Iran. Israel, France, and Britain will be joining. Strikes will be 10 times bigger than the April 2018 Syria strikes, it will be like Gulf War 2.0 baby!

      If they dare, they could destroy Iranian oil facilities. But we actually dont know, who did it.

      Does your brain work well or does it simply serves your little self defined bubble you are living in? Isn’t there any opening to let the reality come in? So sad.

  • RichardD

    The baby rapers are aggressively pushing their Yinon plan regional destabilization efforts. Because they’re losing the Syrian war badly. And with a regional coalition of Israel’s neighbors and nearby nations on the drawing board to clear the IDF out of the occupied territories. That is armed with nuclear weapons. And is supported by international law and many UN resolutions that Israel has been in chronic scofflaw violation of for it’s entire history. They know that their war mongering reign of terror is in serious jeopardy.

  • roland

    Is this the False flag we have been waiting for to kick-start the war with iran

  • Ray Douglas

    The biggest losers are the makers of Patriot Missiles. Totally useless when they can’t protect the most valuable oil depot in the world.

  • cechas vodobenikov

    doubtful there will be a war—a destabilized ME serves US, Israel, SA, ISIS, Hamas, Egypt and Turkish interests

    • Jens Holm

      Others too – I think.

      I think some peace or at least non war would or shoulf serve all.
