Israel reportedly preparing for ‘very violent’ war against Hezbollah

It has been revealed that Israel is preparing for a 'very violent' war with Hezbollah, an extremist organisation in Lebanon. Now, this shouldn't come as a surprise, as it would be general procedure in the IDF to train for any possible war with Lebanon/Hezbollah or any other neighbours of theirs. It is interesting to see the report come just after the recent war with Hamas though...

Hezbollah is considered a powerful force in the region. It is reportedly better trained and better equipped than the Lebanese Army, and outshines them in nearly every way. It will be interesting to see how any potential future war with Hezbollah plays out. It should be noted that the officer in the article seems to be talking as if a future war is an absolute certainty. That might be something to consider.


Just 10 days after a ceasefire ended a 50-day Israel-Hamas conflict, the Israeli army is “making plans and training” for “a very violent war” against Hezbollah in south Lebanon, an Israeli TV report said Friday night, without specifying when this war might break out.

The report, for which the army gave Israel’s Channel 2 access to several of its positions along the border with Lebanon, featured an IDF brigade commander warning that such a conflict “will be a whole different story” from the Israel-Hamas conflict in which over 2,000 Gazans (half of them gunmen according to Israel) and 72 Israelis were killed. “We will have to use considerable force” to quickly prevail over the Iranian-backed Hezbollah, “to act more decisively, more drastically,” said Colonel Dan Goldfus, commander of the 769th Hiram Infantry Brigade.

The report said Hezbollah has an estimated 100,000 rockets — 10 times as many as were in the Hamas arsenal — and that its 5,000 long-range missiles, located in Beirut and other areas deep inside Lebanon, are capable of carrying large warheads (of up to 1 ton and more), with precision guidance systems, covering all of Israel.

Israel’s Iron Dome rocket defense system would not be able to cope with that kind of challenge, and thus the IDF would have to “maneuver fast” and act forcefully to prevail decisively in the conflict, Goldfus said

Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah has responded, stating that while Hezbollah does not want war, it is in a better position than what it was in 2006, when the second Lebanese war had occurred:


Hezbollah head Hassan Nasrallah addressed crowds via a televised speech Saturday, saying his forces didn’t want war with Israel, but that they were alert and should not be underestimated. He also defended his Shi’ite group’s involvement in the bloody, three-year Syrian civil war.

The militant chief warned that Jerusalem shouldn’t think that Hezbollah (“Party of God”) was too busy fighting alongside Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces in that country’s uprising that it wouldn’t be able to defend itself against what he called Israeli aggression.

“We’re not looking for a war,” Nasrallah said from his undisclosed location, but he added that Hezbollah was “much stronger” than it was during the Second Lebanon War in 2006, in terms of weapons, training, and human potential, and that Israel was well aware of its bolstered military capabilities.

He also asserted that Hezbollah’s deterrence had kept the villages in southern Lebanon safe while forcing Israel to think carefully before launching attacks in the area.

Wow it did not say why the Israeli terrorists want to attack them. What Hezbollah did to provoke it. I assume nothing. Israel and America only want to destabilize the region and take over. The TERRORISTS are the USA and Israel and who supports them. At least in the past few decades.

Oh they are fighting in Syria against ISIS. think about that one guys.

Thanks for sharing.
But quite frankly these two have been threatening each other back and forth for years now. Since 2006 when the war ended.
I think it's just hot air.

I could be wrong, but I could be right.
They keep talking about this over and over, it's become the norm.
I wouldn't worry about it too much.
They hate each other to bits, and keep threatening each other.

Lebanon doesn't want another 2006 war. They are still rebuilding areas in Beirut, and have left some buildings shattered by bullets or bombs as a reminder of the past.
They are trying to make Beirut look like how it did before the war. There's big tourism too, every summer tons of Kuwaitis and other Arabs come for the Beirut NIght life.

It sure seems to me that the leaders of Israel like to make war. I wouldn't feel sorry for them at all if someone blew their capital and leaders to hell. Now the Israel people there, that is a different story, most of the regular people are good people.

OOps...thinking out loud again.

What is so Extreme about Hezbollah?

- They protect the Southern Lebanese Border from Israel

- They are fighting terrorism in Syria

- Without Hezbollah, Lebanon would of fallen to ISIS long ago.

- By the sounds of it, Hezbollah are not interested in aggression towards Israel or any other nation in the region..

They seem like a moderate Militia/Political group to me..

I would think that the preparing of war with any one of Israel's neighbours is standard procedure. I would expect Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and every other country in the region to do the same. That is, planning for any possible war in the region.

That said, the region is already unstable. Syria...Iraq...Libya...It doesn't take much to kick something off in the wider region.

They are considered extreme by much of the world. Indeed, they are considered terrorists by many. I understand that this is always due to political indifference and associations etc. We see that with other declared terrorist organisations such as the Kurdish PKK, which is currently fighting against ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

In saying this, i would personally consider both organisations 'extreme', as they have engaged in extreme tactics.

SO how much will this cost America? The genocide Israel committed on Gaza cost America nearly a quarter of a billion. You would think the Israeli firsters we have in our government would finally open their eyes and see Israel for the terrorist nation it is.

So, the history lesson here is what?

"Article Fourteen: The Three Circles
The problem of the liberation of Palestine relates to three circles: the Palestinian, the Arab and the Islamic. Each one of these circles has a role to play in the struggle against Zionism"

Very Public Information

The Ottoman's, Brits, France even Germany placed the country, not the US. Time to read some books and not just listen to talking heads. Oh, genocide? Keep denying a few hundred years of the Jewish (due to a faith) from being targeted...

Well,

From the inception of Hezbollah to the present,[26][79] the elimination of the State of Israel has been one of Hezbollah's primary goals. Some translations of Hezbollah's 1985 Arabic-language manifesto state that "our struggle will end only when this entity [Israel] is obliterated".[26] According to Hezbollah's Deputy-General, Na'im Qasim, the struggle against Israel is a core belief of Hezbollah and the central rationale of Hezbollah's existence.[80]


Hezbollah is another terrorist organisation, like Hamas that has vowed to destroy Israel. They really hate Jews!

Yes, but few will see that a terrorist backed organizion for what they are...people like to balme those that would help.

Not the tunnel rats that forge into a country, launce indiscriminate missels, kill teenagers, hide behind children and women and treat the rules to their tactical advantage ...all in a fight to "be the good guys"

It was simple dirt when the State was created. Look at it now, could the Palestine folks pull that off? No. It has never been a nation. In fact not until WW1, and Turkey falling to agreements...is it even an issue.

Find Palestine in history, I would love to read of it. All I have read it it is geographical....not a nation or a state

I knew Israel's plan is to invade Lebanon and Syria. I hope it backfires on them and they get their asses handed to them.

Hamas doesn't adhere to the old charter anymore and has said so many times. The Likud charter is just as bad. So just because genocide happened to the Jews they can't do it to anyone else?

And who is to blame for the formation of Hezbollah? Israel. If Israel hadn't invaded Lebanon back in 82 Hezbollah would have never been formed.

not only that hezbollah was started and funded by muslim clerics and followers of ayatollah khomeini, during the war with the plo in lebanon.

wiki cuase it's fast, there are other sources tyhat comfrim this.


Hezbollah was conceived by Muslim clerics and funded by Iran following the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982, and was primarily formed to offer resistance to the Israeli occupation.[6] Its leaders were followers of Ayatollah Khomeini, and its forces were trained and organized by a contingent of 1,500 Iranian Revolutionary Guards that arrived from Iran with permission from the Syrian government.[25] Hezbollah's 1985 manifesto listed its objectives as the expulsion of "the Americans, the French and their allies definitely from Lebanon, putting an end to any colonialist entity on our land", submission of the Phalangists to "just power" and bringing them to justice "for the crimes they have perpetrated against Muslims and Christians", and permitting "all the sons of our people" to choose the form of government they want, while calling on them to "pick the option of Islamic government".[26] Its leaders were followers of Ayatollah Khomeini, and its forces were trained and organized by a contingent of 1,500 Iranian Revolutionary Guards that arrived from Iran with permission from the Syrian government Its leaders were followers of Ayatollah Khomeini, and its forces were trained and organized by a contingent of 1,500 Iranian Revolutionary Guards that arrived from Iran with permission from the Syrian government[27] Following the end of the Israeli occupation of South Lebanon in 2000, its military strength grew significantly,[28][29] despite a June 2000 certification by the United Nations that Israel had withdrawn from all Lebanese territory.[30] Hezbollah fought against Israel in the 2006 Hezbollah-Israel War. Hezbollah


and this is their terror wing although they and their sympathizers say it's not, same wiki.


Whether the Islamic Jihad Organization (IJO) was a nom de guerre used by Hezbollah or a separate organization, is disputed. According to certain sources, IJO was identified as merely a "telephone organization,"[62][63] and[64] whose name was "used by those involved to disguise their true identity."[65][66][67][68][69] Hezbollah reportedly also used another name, "Islamic Resistance" (al-Muqawama al-Islamiyya), for attacks against Israel.[70] A 2003 American court decision found IJO was the name used by Hezbollah for its attacks in Lebanon, parts of the Middle East and Europe.[71] The US,[72] Israel[73] and Canada[74] consider the names "Islamic Jihad Organization", "Organization of the Oppressed on Earth" and the "Revolutionary Justice Organization" to be synonymous with Hezbollah
slamic Jihad Organization (IJO)


and here's what they have said about Israel, same wiki.


From the inception of Hezbollah to the present,[26][79] the elimination of the State of Israel has been one of Hezbollah's primary goals. Some translations of Hezbollah's 1985 Arabic-language manifesto state that "our struggle will end only when this entity [Israel] is obliterated".[26] According to Hezbollah's Deputy-General, Na'im Qasim, the struggle against Israel is a core belief of Hezbollah and the central rationale of Hezbollah's existence.[80] Hezbollah says that its continued hostilities against Israel are justified as reciprocal to Israeli operations against Lebanon and as retaliation for what they claim is Israel's occupation of Lebanese territorys. Some translations of Hezbollah's 1985 Arabic-language manifesto state that "our struggle will end only when this entity [Israel] is obliterated".[26]]
2.2 Propaganda


for those that say other wise, should consider themselves to be ignorant or lying sympathizers.

Hezbollah is an angel compared to ISIS. In fact even they were appalled by Foley's beheading.

Not only that they are at war with ISIS




Hezbollah, despite its radical Islamist ideology, considers ISIS to be a major security threat, according to a report in Al Arabia. “Wherever there are followers of the ideology, there is ground for ISIS and this exists in Jordan, in Saudi Arabia, in Kuwait, and the Gulf states,” Hassan Nasrallah said in an interview with the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar. “It appears that the capabilities, numbers and capacities available to ISIS are vast and large. This is what is worrying everyone and everyone should be worried.”

“This danger does not recognize Shiites, Sunnis, Muslims, Christians or Druze or Yazidis or Arabs or Kurds. This monster is growing and getting bigger,” Nasrallah stated. Hezbollah has been fighting against ISIS in Syria and even in Iraq. A Hezbollah commander was killed last month fighting against ISIS in Iraq, Al Arabia reported.

I never compared them to ISIS, and i have no plans to do so.

One simply cannot compare the likes of Hamas or Hezbollah to that of ISIS. ISIS is a different breed altogether. They may all be extremists, but ISIS is simply the worst of the worst.
