Senior Hezbollah member Nabil Qaouk bragged today that the Iran-backed terror group is capable of saturation bombing Israeli population centers, bragging that Israeli cities were being targeted with tens of thousands of missiles.
Last week a car bomb ripped through the Dahiyeh district in southern Beirut. The area is a Hezbollah stronghold. A previously unknown took credit for the attack, linking it to Hezbollah’s activities in Syria on behalf of the Bashar al-Assad regime. Hezbollah blamed Israel.
Two weeks ago four Israeli soldiers were injured in an explosion near the Lebanese-Israeli border. The exact details of the incident are unclear, with Hezbollah accusing Israel of having crossed into Lebanese territory after Lebanese security sources declared that the blast, likely the result of a landmine explosion, may have taken place on the Israeli side of the designated “Blue Line” border that separates the two countries. That claim had been echoed by a second security source.
Observers increasingly fear that the Israeli-Lebanese border will follow Israel’s border with Syria in becoming destabilized by spillover from the Syrian conflict. As with the Syrian border, the United Nations peacekeeping force tasked with maintaining security has threatened to withdraw as a security vacuum develops in the area.
