Israel and Hezbollah have been prodding each other with an exchange of rocket fire near their borders. Hezbollah attacked a tank in response, resulting in the deaths of 4 IDF soldiers.


An anti-tank missile has struck an Israeli Defense Forces vehicle in the Har Dov area near the Lebanese border, Israeli media report.

Reports of casualties in the attack have emerged. Four soldiers are dead, according to Al Arabiya sources.

Hezbollah has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Residents in the area have been instructed to stay indoors.

“All residents are asked to return to their homes and to close all doors and windows until further notice,” the IDF’s Home Front Command said in a text message, cited by the Times of Israel.

Blow back is a real bitch.

Sooner or later, Israel will take that one little step too far.

She seems to just love surrounding herself with people that have valid reason to hate her. Peace seems never to be on the agenda.

The warning from Iran is telling IMHO.

hezbolah committed a barbaric act by attacking Israeli soldiers. It is also shameful too considering they chose the day after Holocaust Memorial day.

It could equally be argued that Israel committed a barbaric act in killing 5 Hezbollah fighters and 1 Iranian military officer...

We shouldn't look at these things with imbalance. If one side is barbaric for killing 4 soldiers, then surely the other side is also guilty of being barbaric in their killings of 6 fighters involved in supporting a foreign government.

Also, on the topic of the Holocaust, Jews were not the only minority to have been murdered by the Nazis during their programs. Many millions of other minorities were also exterminated alongside the Jews. So really, the anniversary should be commemorating all of the victims instead of only 6 million of them. That would also mean that the memorial is not a Jewish one, but rather one commemorating the lives of millions of innocent people, regardless of their race, gender, sex or religion. I think it is fair to separate the Jews who suffered extreme suffering at the hands of the Nazis and the modern state of Israel. Especially when one considers the above information on the crimes of the Nazis.

Not necessarily, there is new alignments happening in the middle east


What is new in the relationship between Hamas and Hezbollah is what Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah announced on TV on Jan. 15 regarding Hamas' having serious intentions to redress its relationship with Hezbollah and Iran. Nasrallah said this decision was a central one taken by the Hamas leadership locally and abroad, and that bilateral relations have come a long way.

Throw Syria into the mix along with Iran, Palestine, Lebanon and God knows who else this could cause a big headache for Israel. Instead of fighting on one front they might have to defend all sides. This retaliation attack could be a precursor to a bigger attack coming.

There is certainly the potential for a larger cluster $*!#, however Hezbollah is currently dealing with ISIS on it's doorstep while trying to support Assad against the "moderates" in Syria. They have their hands full. The wildcard is definitely Iran, but I don't see them getting involved when they are currently worried about events in Iraq and Syria.

Israel could lob a few more artillery shells and call it a day, and hope the rest of the Shia and Sunni keep killing each other, but I sort of doubt it. Not their style.

Seeing how the IDF couldn't run back to Israel fast enough it did take it's toll on them.

Whatever floats your boat, buster. We should get you some pom poms. You can cheerlead hezbollah if war breaks out


Hell you could cheerlead anyone! As long as they are against Israel, right?

Israel seems to be digging itself into a hole of sorts. Between the problems with Hezbollah and the rising tensions with Iran I see Israel as a possible flashpoint in the near future.

Cheerleading, popcorn and orgasms when witnessing death and destruction is an Israeli thing I'm afraid.

Well it's sort of the center of prophecy for 3 of the worlds largest religions, and has been for thousands of years...

Combine that with the fact it's recently become trendy to hate the nation of Israel and I think you are probably right. It was one thing for the arabs to wish for Israel's destruction, but it would seem there is a whole new army of liberals ready to join the fight.
