France Warned Lebanon of Possible Israeli Attack – Report

  • France Warned Lebanon of Possible Israeli Attack – Report
    by YASSER OKBI/MAARIV, https://www.jpost.com/
    Paris expressed concern regarding reports of precision-guided missiles on Lebanese soil, which Israel may strike at.

    France warned Lebanon that Israel would attack precision-guided rocket systems belonging to Hezbollah, according to a report Saturday in the Holland-based paper Al-Hayat. The paper quoted Arab diplomatic sources as saying that “The French- who have so far been content as observers- inserted themselves into the Iranian line tightening around Syria and Lebanon, including Hezbollah, and joined in the escalating tone of American Secretary of State Mike Pompeo,” after they understood the Americans were serious about ramping up sanctions on Iran.

    According to the sources, Paris expressed concern regarding reports of precision-guided missiles on Lebanese soil. The reports were sent by Israel to the French and to the Americans.

    “France considers it Lebanon’s responsibility to take steps to ensure that precision-guided rocket systems” will not have a presence in the country, said one source, “since Israel will not stand by the establishment of such systems with Iranian support.” The source emphasized that France is moving closer to the American position in Syria, therefore it is also concerned about the situation in Lebanon.

    Earlier this week, it was reported that the Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil met with a senior Israeli official in Moscow, and discussed issues of borders, the Syrian war and Iranian weapons factories in Lebanon.

Nasrallah Warns of War This Summer, Worries He Could be Killed – Report

  • Nasrallah Warns of War This Summer, Worries He Could be Killed – Report
    by TZVI JOFFRE, https://www.jpost.com/
    Sources from within Hezbollah have denied the report, saying that all of it is a “fabric of the writer’s imagination,” according to Lebanon 24 news. Nasrallah will speak on Monday.

    Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah warned top military commanders in a private meeting this week that there will be a war with Israel this summer and that he may not be around to support them, according to Elijah J. Magnier, a writer for the Kuwaiti Al Rai news.

    “I may not remain among you for very long; it is possible that the entire first level of leadership could be killed, including myself,” Nasrallah reportedly told the commanders. “Measures and procedures have already been taken to be ready even if this extreme case happens.”

    Al Rai is Kuwait’s daily newspaper. Surveys by the Washington-based Intermedia group have ranked the paper one among Kuwaiti newspapers. 

    Nasrallah reportedly said that he expects the war to take everybody by surprise, like the 2006 Lebanon War. “Israel can surprise us all like it did in Gaza in 2008 with the objective of removing the threat on its borders once and for all,” Nasrallah stated. “This is what our people should know, and they should from now on be prepared for the worse-case scenario.”

    According to the report, Hezbollah believes that Israel will evacuate Israeli settlements near the Lebanese border to prevent the possibility of kidnappings. 
    A “knowledgeable source” told Magnier that “this is the first time Sayyed Nasrallah has offered such a bleak perspective, raising the chances of war with Israel from 50/50 to 70/30.”

    Magnier also claims that Nasrallah believes that other countries, including the USA, the UK and many Arab states could take part in an upcoming conflict.

‘Declare War on Lebanon, Take Out Syria’s S-300s’: Outgoing Israeli General on Handling Neighbors

https://twitter.com/YiddishNews/status/1093888318591418369

  • ‘Declare War on Lebanon, Take Out Syria’s S-300s’: Outgoing Israeli General on Handling Neighbors
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Israel has the full arsenal needed to take on Hezbollah in Lebanon and eliminate the Iranian threat in Syria, the outgoing IDF Northern Command chief boasted, warning Damascus against using S-300s to protect its sovereignty.

    “If our freedom of movement is threatened, we will remove the threat. We know how to do that,”
    General Yoel Strick told Ynet News, adding that Israel will soon introduce “advanced weapons systems” to ensure it can continue to violate neighboring states’ airspace and to strike targets in Syria with impunity.


    If the Syrians employ Russian S-300s against our planes, and we take them out, it will be seen as a legitimate move on our part.

    While acknowledging that such a drastic move might damage Tel Aviv’s relations with Moscow, Strick expressed hope that it wouldn’t come to that. Moscow had supplied the Arab Republic with S-300 air defense systems following the downing of a Russian Il-20 reconnaissance plane with 15 airmen on board in mid-September, during an Israeli raid.


    Moscow also warned Israel that it will suppress all satellite navigation, radars and communications systems of combat planes over the Mediterranean Sea if their maneuvers threaten Russian forces. Since then, Israel has been staging its intrusions via Lebanon, where the Jewish State is trying to keep Hezbollah in check.

Israel Strikes ‘Iranian Targets’ In Homs. Only Syrian Missile Launcher Found To Be Destroyed

Syria Says Israeli Air Attack Injures Six Soldiers

  • Syria Says Israeli Air Attack Injures Six Soldiers
    by https://www.aljazeera.com/news/, 13 April 2019
    Damascus says its defence system struck down some missiles during the Israeli air attack on a military position in Hama.

    Israeli planes targeted a military position near the Syrian province of Hama wounding six soldiers, but the country’s air defences intercepted and downed some of the rockets, Syria‘s state news agency reported.

    Citing military sources, SANA news agency and state television said that Israeli aircraft using Lebanese airspace targeted “one of our military positions towards the city of Masyaf” and that several buildings were destroyed.

    “The enemy missiles were dealt with and some of them were shot down before reaching their target, resulting in the damage of a few buildings and the injury of three fighters,” SANA added.

    The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the Israeli air attacks hit three targets, wounding 17 Syrian soldiers. It said there were also deaths, but it was not immediately clear how many were killed. It said the targets were a military academy as well as a missile development centre in a village near Masyaf.

    The Israeli military does not usually comment on reports concerning its air attacks in neighbouring Syria though it has recently acknowledged hitting what Tel Aviv claims are Iranian targets in Syria. The last such attacks that Israel announced were in late March. There was no immediate comment from Israel.

    Since the civil war started, Israel has carried out scores of military air bombings in Syria against suspected arms transfers and deployments by Iranian forces and their Lebanese Hezbollah allies which are backing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Syrian War: US And Israel Prepare For Coordinated Campaign Against Iranian Forces

  • South Front Published on Apr 9, 2019
    On April 8, the Trump administration announced that it is designating Iran’s Revolutionary Guards as a “terrorist organization,” accusing the force of financing and promoting terrorism in the region. Earlier, Advisor to the Secretary of State Brian Hook claimed that Iran is responsible for the deaths of at least 608 US service members in Iraq in the period from 2003 to 2011. In response, the Iranian Supreme National Security Council designated the United States Central Command a “terrorist organization”. These developments show that Washington has taken course on a new round of the escalation with Iran. In the coming months, the US will likely undertake more measures both diplomatic, economic and maybe even military to increase pressure on the Iranian government and to limit its influence across the Middle East. An expanded US-Israeli campaign against supposed Iranian targets in Syria is named as one of the options that are currently considered by the US.

Trump’s Green Light to Israel: First the Golan, Then the West Bank?

  • Trump’s Green Light to Israel: First the Golan, Then the West Bank?
    by JONATHAN COOK, https://www.counterpunch.org/
    Nazareth.
    When President Donald Trump moved the US embassy to occupied Jerusalem last year, effectively sabotaging any hope of establishing a viable Palestinian state, he tore up the international rulebook. Last week, he trampled all over its remaining tattered pages. He did so, of course, via Twitter.


    Referring to a large piece of territory Israel seized from Syria in 1967, Trump wrote: “After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability.”

    Israel expelled 130,000 Syrians from the Golan Heights in 1967, under cover of the Six Day War, and then annexed the territory 14 years later – in violation of international law. A small population of Syrian Druze are the only survivors of that ethnic cleansing operation. Replicating its illegal acts in the occupied Palestinian territories, Israel immediately moved Jewish settlers and businesses into the Golan.

    Until now, no country had recognised Israel’s act of plunder. In 1981, UN member states, including the US, declared Israeli efforts to change the Golan’s status “null and void”.

    But in recent months, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu began stepping up efforts to smash that long-standing consensus and win over the world’s only superpower to his side. He was spurred into action when the Bashar Al Assad – aided by Russia – began to decisively reverse the territorial losses the Syrian government had suffered during the nation’s eight-year war.

    The fighting dragged in a host of other actors. Israel itself used the Golan as a base from which to launch covert operations to help Assad’s opponents in southern Syria, including Islamic State fighters. Iran and the Lebanese militia Hezbollah, meanwhile, tried to limit Israel’s room for manoeuvre on the Syrian leader’s behalf.

Russian FM Says U.S. “Deal of Century” Worrying

  • Russian FM Says U.S. “Deal of Century” Worrying
    by http://www.xinhuanet.com/
    AMMAN, April 7 (Xinhua) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Sunday that leaks of U.S. President Donald Trump’s “Deal of Century” on Mideast peace are worrying. Lavrov said Russia does not have information about the deal, but the leaks of some of its details are worrying, at a joint press conference in Amman with Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi.

    The Russian official described the developments in the Palestinian issue as worrying to Russia, adding that the international community should be committed to the Arab peace initiative and all relevant UN resolutions.

    “All unilateral attempts will not lead to anything good. We are concerned with the U.S. decisions on the Golan Heights and Jerusalem and the negative U.S. attempts including what is known as the Deal of Century,” he told reporters.

    The Russian official voiced his country’s support for the two-state solution, condemning the U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. He called on the international community to abide by the international resolutions in this regard and the Arab peace initiative, adding that the U.S. decision is illegal and invalid.

    Safadi said that Jordan does not have information about the details of U.S. President Donald Trump’s Deal of Century on Mideast peace. The minister said that “we do not know the details of the deal and we do not know what the U.S. will say.” Jordan’s position in this regard is constant and was reiterated by King Abdullah II of Jordan repeatedly, said Safadi.

    “The only solution is to end the Israeli occupation and to enable the Palestinians to attain their legitimate rights in line with the two-state solution that ensures their right to statehood and freedom with East Jerusalem being the capital of their state,” said Safadi. On Syria, Safadi reiterated the call for a political solution, voicing support for all efforts to restore stability in the country. Also on Sunday, King Abdullah II of Jordan met with the Russian minister and discussed regional developments. The meeting stressed the need for continued coordination to enhance the regional security and stability.

Israeli Strikes On Syria: Weapons, Effect, Consequences

  • South Front Published on Apr 4, 2019
    The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) continue their bombing campaign in Syria. In the framework of this campaign, IDF aircraft strike what the Israeli leadership describes as Iranian infrastructure and weapon shipments to Hezbollah and pro-Iranian armed groups. Nonetheless, positions and equipment of the Syrian Armed Forces often appear to be target of Israeli strikes allegedly aimed solely against Iran. In rare cases, when Israel publicly admits strikes in Syria, it claims that the SAF is being targeted because of its “hostile actions” towards Israeli missiles and aircraft entering Syrian airspace.

    The unofficial and illegal pattern of Israeli strikes, the double-faced public attitude of the Israeli leadership as well as the unwillingness of Syrian and Iranian forces to admit any damage and casualties caused by Israeli actions hinder efforts to get a real assessment of the effectiveness of the IDF military campaign. Taking into account that the IDF provided little details even into officially declared strikes, this breeds grounds for wild media speculations and rumors. On the one hand, Syrian and Iranian media demonstrate a classic example of “there were no casualties” coverage. On the other hand, US and Israeli media, and sometimes even official Tel Aviv, time and time again destroy almost entire Iranian military infrastructure and even Syrian air defense system, which then mysteriously resurface by a next Israeli strike.

    Despite this, the jets and weapons list employed by the IDF against targets in Syria are an open secret. The core of the Israeli Air Force striking force is the F-16I Sufa. This warplane is a modified variant of the F-16D block 50 and 52 fighter and ground attack aircraft. The F-16I, which has a crew of two, differs from the original F-16 by modified avionics and weapons systems.

“Iran doesn’t frighten me and I don’t think it should frighten the American people. They don’t have a bomb. They haven’t made a decision to build one. They don’t have the means to deliver one. And the Israelis have 300 atomic bombs! I mean who presents the existential threat to whom?” – Pat Buchanan (7:58 onwards)

Trump’s Golan Move Means His ‘Deal of the Century’ May Be Dead

  • There is NO peace treaty. The plan is to expel the Palestinians (REAL Jews) into the Sinai desert. Thus, fulfilling Revelation 12:6, 13-14
  • Trump’s Golan Move Means His ‘Deal of the Century’ May Be Dead
    by , https://www.bloomberg.com/
    * Saudi Arabia says Golan decision undermines Kushner peace plan
    * Hezbollah leader warns Palestinians that West Bank may be next

    President Donald Trump was already struggling to rally Arab support for a long-awaited Middle East peace plan he’s dubbed the “deal of the century.” His latest move in support of Israel may make that plan dead on arrival.

    By recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the long-disputed Golan Heights, seized from Syria in the 1967 Six Day War, Trump shoved Arab allies he’s counting on to back his peace initiative into a corner. The Golan decision came after he had already angered much of the Arab world by moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and cutting off funding for a United Nations agency helping Palestinian refugees.

    Saudi Arabia and Egypt are unlikely to throw their weight behind the proposal being drawn up by Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and adviser, and White House Middle East peace negotiator Jason Greenblatt, according to interviews with key diplomats and analysts in Washington. One diplomat called the initiative, which has yet to be made public, “hocus pocus” and doubted whether Trump — who has raised questions about whether he supports a Palestinian state — cares about a negotiated settlement.

    “Giving the Arabs a gut punch with Golan will not help get them to the table,” said Paul Sullivan, a Middle East expert at Georgetown University’s Center for Security Studies. “It shows deep disrespect for the Arabs at large. It is a huge loss of face.”

    As two of America’s closest Middle East allies, Egypt and Saudi Arabia are essential to any viable deal. Trump will get a chance to woo Egypt’s leader when President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi visits Washington on April 9.

Legal Experts Debunk Netanyahu’s Golan Heights Claim: Annexation Can’t Be Excused by Defensive War

  • “Another widely accepted Zionist myth … that in 1967 Israel faced an existential threat … countless books have been written … in Hebrew, English, Arabic …. documentaries have been filmed .. disproving this completely! The purpose of the war was conquest!”
    – Miko Peled 5:50 onwards
  • For the record, the 1967, ‘6’ day war was not a defensive war. It was a war of aggression triggered by the Zionist state. NUTenyahu is spewing Zionist propaganda! See:

    The 1967, ‘6’ Day War: Zionist Israel’s Unprovoked War of Aggression And Greed for Land!
  • Legal Experts Debunk Netanyahu’s Golan Heights Claim: Annexation Can’t Be Excused by Defensive War
    by , https://www.haaretz.com/
    Trump and Netanyahu declared that the Golan could be annexed because Israel took it in a war of self-defense, but legal experts say this goes against international law – and that the West Bank is another story in any case.

    The Proclamation on Recognizing the Golan Heights as Part of the State of Israel, which U.S. President Donald Trump signed last week during a ceremony at the White House, states its reasoning as: “The State of Israel took control of the Golan Heights in 1967 to safeguard its security from external threats.”

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu underscored this argument during and after the proclamation was signed. In his speech at the ceremony, Netanyahu said: “Israel won the Golan Heights in a just war of self-defense.” Speaking to reporters at the airport in Washington before his return flight to Israel, he said: “There is a very important principle in international life — when you start wars of aggression, you lose territory; do not come and claim it afterwards. It belongs to us.”

    The argument that international law differentiates between area conquered in a war of self-defense and area that is not conquered in such a war is not new. Israeli officials mention it in international forums from time to time. For example, in a meeting in February 2018 in Warsaw, Dr. Dore Gold, former director general of the Foreign Ministry and now president of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, said that international law makes a clear distinction between land occupied during a war of aggression and land taken in the wake of a defensive war. According to Gold, the international community has realized that the Six-Day War was a war of self-defense and therefore international law is different with regard to the Golan Heights.

    To better understand how these statements reflect international law, Haaretz spoke with experts who agreed that even if it is possible to make a case for holding on to the territory of an aggressive entity, when it comes to annexing territory or extending sovereignty over it, the argument of self-defense does not apply to laws of occupation.

    Legal expert and former ambassador Alan Baker is the director of the Institute for Contemporary Affairs at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. The former legal adviser to and deputy director of the Foreign Ministry told Haaretz that contemporary international law does not distinguish between defensive and other wars.

    “There is no way to acquire land by force and it doesn’t matter whether it’s defensive or not defensive. Modern international [law] doesn’t recognize it. How can territory be acquired? By agreement and negotiation or takeover of a country that ceases to exist. But not by force. There is a certain flaw here in international law because in fact this is a prize to the aggressor. He does not lose the right to the territory.”

Russian MoD: French, Belgian Intel Officers Plan Chemical ‘Provocation’ in Idlib

  • Russian MoD: French, Belgian Intel Officers Plan Chemical ‘Provocation’ in Idlib
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Belgian and French intelligence officers have arrived in Syria’s Idlib to stage provocations with the use of chemical substances, the head of the Russian Defense Ministry’s Center for Syrian Reconciliation said on Friday.

    “To organize provocations, representatives of the French and Belgian secret services arrived in Idlib. Under their supervision, a meeting was held with the field commanders of the terrorist groups of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and Hurras Al-Din, as well as with the representatives of the pseudo-humanitarian organization ‘White helmets’”, Maj. Gen. Viktor Kupchishin said at a news briefing.

    At the meeting, the attendees discussed organization of staged film shoots, which would falsely depict Russia and Syria using chemical agents against civilians, according to the center.

    “For participation in filming of scenes depicting the effects of the use of poisonous substances, payments were set at $100 per person. At the same time, it is possible that organizers used real toxic substances in order to achieve ‘authenticity’ of photo and video materials”, Kupchishin underlined, adding that refugees and families held by the terrorist groups could have been forced to take part in the staged shoots.
