Hezbollah On "High Alert", Says It Will Be Blamed For 'False Flag' Assassination Attempt

Submitted by Elijah Magnier, Middle East based chief international war correspondent for Al Rai Media

Hezbollah has raised its military readiness on the whole Lebanese territory in the last few days and put its forces on high alert in the light of the threats it has received from a number of countries, and especially from Israel and Saudi Arabia. Hezbollah forces have been mobilized in the event of any hostile activity on the borders or in the country, notwithstanding the ongoing conviction of its leadership that Israel will not wage a direct war in the near or distant future.

According to well informed sources, Hezbollah fears the possible assassination of a well-known Lebanese figure, Sunni or Christian, similar to the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in 2005. The aim would be to re-mix the cards on the Lebanese scene, accuse Hezbollah and to embarrass President Michel Aoun.

Aoun has raised the challenge against Riyadh during the recent events related to the televised resignation of Prime Minister Saad Hariri, and he has accused Saudi Arabia of holding Hariri as a hostage (for more than two weeks), defining the Prime Minister’s submission to this act as “unconstitutional and illegitimate.”

Moreover, Hezbollah, in coordination with Iran, has issued orders not to transfer weapons sent to it from Iran via Syria to Lebanon for the following clearly defined reasons:

  • There is no longer a reason to store weapons in Lebanon because the Lebanese-Syrian front has become united.
  • Hezbollah needs to maintain accurate and long-range missiles in Syria (not Lebanon), confirming what Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah and Syrian President Bashar Assad have said, that “Syria is one front against Israel in the next war.”
  • Hezbollah’s weapons stores in Lebanon are full, and its warehouses are overflowing. Hezbollah therefore could maintain a long war if Israel did decide to attack Lebanon, and has the capability of launching hundreds of rockets and missiles daily.

It is clear that President Bashar al-Assad has emerged stronger from the war that has been going on for more than six years. His thinking is now orientated towards the Israeli threat, to tune in with Hezbollah and to assure Saudi Arabia and Israel that Hezbollah will not be left alone in any future battle because the front from Naqoura (in southern Lebanon) to the Golan is now united. Assad is determined and able to respond to any Israeli violation following the total defeat of the “Islamic State” in all the Syrian cities.

Thus, Assad has lived with and survived the war and has learned to accept losses: during the hard days of the war, the number of soldiers killed reached hundreds in some battles. The Syrian leadership is in a better position to accept the consequences of any future war with Israel as long as the goals are reached despite the sacrifices required.

But Assad will not be alone facing any future attack on Hezbollah. There are thousands of fighters in Syria from neighboring countries, available at the request of the Syrian government. These shall certainly not be neutral in the next war with Israel if it should happen.

Damascus will be careful not to provoke the United States directly in the next war with Israel, but it will give a free hand to the Syrian resistance if the US decides to occupy north-east Syria.

The presence of Russian troops in the Levant may not allow all belligerents to be dragged into a large war with multiple frontiers and certainly not a third world war. Israel is so far giving signs that its forces are aware of the future danger and won’t be dragged into a war in the region despite Saudi Arabia’s financial offers and support. The Saudis were responsible for kidnapping the Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri (who was "released" this weekend), aiming to present Lebanon as more vulnerable, inviting Israel, in vain, to attack what the Kingdom defines as the “arms of Iran” in the Middle East.

Russia has no agreement with Israel on anything related to the presence of the Iranian forces and its loyalists in Syria and particularly on the borders with Israel. The Kremlin is not negotiating and disposing of Syrian soil because these matters concern the Syrian government, which intends to recover the occupied Golan after the end of the ISIS threat and al-Qaeda, the Takfiri extremists, in Syria.

Saudi Arabia's renewed power ploy in the Middle East is likely to more than meet its match because it seriously underestimates Hezbollah as an effective military arm of Iran

You would not know a great composer if that person was thrust upon you...my HASBARA friend. If you have any sembalance of intelligence left, you would plainly see in ALL of my writings that I have no opposition to our sane Jews -- none what so ever, and moreover, I have a special place in my heart for sane Jews; an anecdote if you will: one who was instrumental in my own life (her last name was Fiat and first initial was M. -- a most lovely JEWISH woman whom I shall NEVER forget and who will always stay dear to my heart -- introduced me to the geniuses of classical music.

Have you only been exposed, in your "upbringing" to only these composers: Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, Schoenberg, and pianists like Horowitz, Rubenstein, Barenboim, or the newer likes of Kissin...all Jews, but great ones nontheless???...

What about the greatest of them all...white European man????

Afterall, white men are the greatest composers no matter how you want to frame the past...in which your kind will lose...you have NO idea of the genius of WHITE men!!!

Speaking of neo-Nazi, I am sure you have been taught in the arts of the most racist, ethno-centric, pedophilic, psychotic principles of the Babylonian Talmudic texts by the Kabbalistic authority near and deep to you -- in more ways than one can imagine....

Yes. Hariri is in France,with La Putain Macron. He is the best target ,they already accused Hezbollah of trying to assassinate him. It will probably be done by Mo$$ad And the EU and US will blame them too(they are   good,good Goyim).Their great leader,Nasrallah,told the non zionists in the little shitty country to leave,as the next war against Lebanon will be the last war of the zionist entity.I bet you that the Donald will MAGA by sacrificing young American Goyim to the glory of Israhell.

Defending the Lebonese, particulary the Shia. Do you remember the illegal Israeli invation and occupation of Lebanon? It was Hezbollah's miliatary-paramilitary formations who drove the technically and materially superior Israelis kicking and screaming back across their own border. Israelis typically do not fear Arabs. They fear Hezbollah.

Right on Shemp. Created in 1982 to resist the invasion of the FAKE JOOS into Lebanon.  That was  their main objectiveImagine the US being invaded by Canada or Mexico who bombed the shit out of all Christians and other zealots, and your army was weakened or annihilated by the ongoing civil war. now tell me, would you form a militia or not to defend the land?Lebanon being a 5000 year history, with the land of QANA where water turned to wine with Christ (that actually was dessimated by the Israeli onslaught in 2006), has a capitol that was buried 6 times and was rebuilt. The Lebanese of all sects are tough and know how to converge and live together in peace. Hezbollah actually did not start getting any Iranian help till 1986. They kicked the Joos out in 1982, 2000.Defeated the Golani Joo Klan and Mirkava POS in the 2006 war, which was actually orchestrated by Condi Rice and the outhouse of Saud.

He's agit prop (Judas)...meant to create a bond with his victims initially, through some perceived shared ideologies, only to betray them in the end, as in the hints displayed before your very eyes. (Yes, there is room for disagreement here, but there are those here who can distinguish subtleties contained within the "fine" line...)

This troll is plain to see, in the eyes of those who can decipher these perpetrators....

"...now tell me, would you form a militia or not to defend the land?"Can't. The Feinsien led charge removed all the citizenry's means of defense - because of the Constitution or something.The title of that tyrants Bill:"A BILL To regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes."co-signed by about 2 dozen other tyrants hell bent on totalitarian rule of the US.
