Taking Hezbollah Seriously

Israel has been very busy this week, acting on its intelligence service’s advice and striking various terrorist sites to the north before said terrorists can attack. These successful preventative actions have, of course, angered Hezbollah terror chief Hassan Nasrallah, who is threatening to strike Israel with a vengeance. Ynet News’ Israeli military analyst Alex Fishman discusses these threats, as well as those from Iran, whose nearby terror interests Israel has also been striking with impunity:

The threats made by Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah to attack Israeli aircraft should indeed be taken seriously.

According to reports, Hezbollah has already tried to shoot down Israeli drones, so far with no success…

The Hezbollah leader threatened action against Israel that could come from either Lebanon or Syria. Israeli forces have increased both intelligence-gathering operations and troop deployment to be able to counter any cross-border aggression from either country.

Iranian targets in Syria have come under dozens of unimpeded Israeli attacks, over the past three years, and Israel is wondering if their patience may be running out, now that the civil war in Syria is nearing its end.

IDF forces on the northern border are expected to stay on high alert. The Israelis are taking Nasrallah at his word…

While the attack on the village of Aqraba south of Damascus was based on real-time intelligence. The decision to carry out the raid was taken when it was clear that the attack was imminent.

What these two events have in common is that they exposed the frequent use of UAVs in Mideast conflicts…

UAVs are part of a revolution in precision weapons. They are the ideal tools for terrorists…
