Iran is smuggling artillery precision parts to Hizballah by Syrian IL-76s through a Syrian air base

A Syrian IL-76 transport plane from Tehran stood on the tarmac of the Syria T-4 air base on Thursday, Oct. 3. No one approached it until night fell, when it took off for Beirut. There, it was unloaded at top speed by a trained team onto a line of trucks.
That plane was one of three or four Syrian Air Force IL-76s making the Tehran-Beirut run in recent days through T-4, the big Syrian Tyas Military Airbase which is also used by the Russian air force and Iran’s Al Qods Brigades air arm.

DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources can report exclusively that they are running a secret operation codenamed Labeik-1 for smuggling into Lebanon special Iranian equipment for converting Hizballah’s long-range artillery into weapons with the navigational capability and precision of ballistic missiles, like the capacities already added to Hizballah’s Fatteh-1110 and Zelzal-5 rockets.

When Labeik-1 is finished, Hizballah’s long-range artillery, the Naze’at 10-H and Naze’at 6-H, which have ranges of 100-150km, will be able to pinpoint multiple targets at any populated area and strategic sites in northern and central Israel up and including the towns of Zichron Yaakov and Hadera.

Tehran’s appetite for aggression against Israel was not put off by the two major operations the IDF conducted at the end of August for thwarting an Iranian offensive that was then imminent. First, Israeli air strikes knocked out a fleet of Mohajer killer drones standing ready for takeoff at the secret Akraba site south of Damascus. The next day, an IDF drone killed Al Qods Brigades chief Qassem Soleimani’s senior operations liaison officer with Hizballah on Mouawad Street in the Dahya district of Beirut.

Undeterred, Iran’s war planners are going ahead with their plans to upgrade Hizballah’s arsenal. But for Operation Labeik-1, Soleimani is taking the precaution of filtering the air-freighted equipment for Hizballah through the T-4 air base. He trusts it will be safe from Israeli air strikes in the light of Israel’s commitment to abstain from harming Assad regime facilities as part of its understandings with Moscow. He is therefore counting on any attacks ventured by Israel risking interception by the S-300 and S-400 air defense batteries stationed at the Russian Khmeimim air base in Latakia.

But anyone who is dishonest in little matters will be dishonest in important matters. Whoever is faithful in small matters will be faithful in large ones; whoever is dishonest in small matters will be dishonest in large ones? So We blame only Trump not Others?

      “The United States Government has pressed France, Germany, and other European nations, from which many captured ISIS fighters came, to take them back, but they did not want them and refused. The United States will not hold them for what could be many years and great cost to the United States taxpayer. Turkey will now be responsible for all ISIS fighters in the area captured over the past two years in the wake of the defeat of the territorial “Caliphate” by the United States.”

    Iran is on a religious apocalyptic suicide mission. It has to take over Mecca from both the south (Yemen) and the north (Iraq) before their “Imam Mahdi” can reappear and return. Iran is determined at all costs to do this no matter what. Unfortunately, there are very few who have listened and heard to what is being said about this.

    Hezbollah has had tens of thousands of missiles for over a decade and has not used them. Hezbollah having a very credible threat has also meant that Israel has chosen to not attack. But with Israel’s antimissile systems Hezbollah is choosing to add precision missions to hold strategic targets at greater risk. Is this not better than just adding tens of thousands of extra missiles with multiple warheads to threaten civilian areas which will reduce civilian casualties? Whats wrong with Hezbollah having a deterrent against attacks?

      Its a interesting point, as precision weapon will enable Hezbollah to effectively threaten strategic targets with a few missiles vs using very large numbers to saturate an entire area. So that action alone would save a lot of Israeli lives. Based on the numbers of missiles that they have the missiles would overwhelm the missile defense systems very easily and based on the cost of the missile defense per shot Israel is only going to have a very limited number anyway. So they will need to decide if area saturation attacks vs precision is preferred. I think precision is better due to the reduction in civilian casualties.

    Iran is working with DPRK using the money Obama gave them. Talks with DPRK not succesfull just now. Have to take this threat out one by one. Starting at this side of equation. Problem is Trump’s reelection. But if and when they really team up couple of years from now, it will be a global disaster, also for America. MBS is chickening out also. But Israel has no choice. Than there is Russia in all of this. (read the navim for that and trust in G’d)

      You don’t seem to realise that there have been attacks (which very likely were conducted by Israel) on the Iraqi PMU militia AFTER the attacks on Saudi Arabia. And the Iranians would be real fools to mix up the IDF with the Saudi army. The last time they sent a single drone to Israel, the IDF (or to be more precise the IAF) took apart most of their military presence in Syria. Now try to imagine how the IDF would react when the Iranians tried to pull off some “Aramco-style” attack on Israel.

    Leaders of nations adversarial to Israel all have personal knowledge, or have advisors, with personal knowledge of Scriptural warnings against harming Israel. Directly or indirectly all the players in these parts and from afar, understand the figurative and literal meaning of having “Hooks In Their Jaws” pulling them to attempt destruction of the Jew.

    Saddest example of all is the leader of 100’s of millions to the far north, claiming to be a Christian, establishing Naval & Air Bases used for supplying aid, comfort and technology to the age old Islamic mission bent on preventing/eliminating Israel from Covenant Land. Iran will be slammed and any other nation or political agencies aiding & abetting the works of the Prince Of Persia will pay an existential price.

      You people need to get past all this religious dogma. Seriously people its 2019 not 500BC. You have your book they have theirs and you both believe that you are special and the only group who knows the whole truth. The reason why people hate you is because of your actions. Stop attacking people and watch your enemies quickly diminish. Also the vast majority of jews are not people of the BLOODLINE you are converts. Lets try and be a little less dramatic and accept that if we all equal then what Israel has done to others, THOSE OTHERS CAN LAWFULLY DO TO YOU.

    If this werw not so serious it would be very funny. Reading the articles and the responses always reminds me of warching Monty Python movie. Incredible religious
    Dogma and reverse projection at play here. One day they will learn that they sow as they reap. So change your actions and you will get a equal change from the others side. Imagine if America shot at people in Mexico or Canada and wounded over 10 thousand in a single year because they were to close to the boarder. Or if we started killing Chinese scientists because we did not want them to make technological progress. Whats the likelihood that these actions would cause a response from them? Israel has created its own problems and yet they do not seem to have the intellectual honesty to see that they have created the problem. Sadly we are still wasting our Taxpayers money on this silly little people. Its time that we woke up and put America first. How many more hundreds of Billions must we throw away before they change there ways?

      “Joshua” followers, those who violate Torah “coveting neighbors lands” by trying to twist “the Promised Land” of Heaven, into a Torah violating “Promised Land of Earth killing neighbors to take their land” These snake tongued politicians and their “Rabbi” have led some of Abraham’s descendants into a collection of crimes so bad that they have had to admit Heaven does not exist for them. These snake tongued “leaders” have hypnotized many people into believing that the word “Hebrew” or “Israelite” means “Jew” when any non-hypnotized person can see that Jews did not exist during the Exodus. These hypnotists say “Jesus was a Jew” when the recorded testimony is that Gabriel said “he shall be called a Nazarene” The failure of “Israel” and “Israelis” to live in peace since 1947 is because the hypnotized persons under the spell of false beliefs cannot make others believe their false beliefs.
