Hamas & Hizballah set up new March of Return militia on Lebanese-Israeli border

The relative calm prevailing on Israel’s border with Hamas-ruled Gaza is deceptive. Hamas has not changed its terrorist spots, only switched fronts, DEBKAfile’s exclusive counter-terrorism sources report.

Hamas’s military wing, Ezz e-Din al-Qassam, was not persuaded by the excessive concessions that Israel and Egypt granted the Gaza Strip to give up the mob violence of firebombs and grenades against Israeli troops guarding the Gaza border in the past year, or to withhold the explosive balloons and rocket volleys aimed into Israel.  Relative calm for the time being was not bought by the monthly river of Qatari dollars or the cash released by a UN fund which had collected $300 m from donor governments. While pretending to Israel and Egypt to be ready for a long-term truce, Hamas leaders have by no means given up on their terror campaign against Israel. Far from it. They have simply decided that the Gaza confrontation has done its work and yielded lucrative returns and were persuaded to switch fronts and move north into Lebanon.

This was not Hamas’ brainchild. It came from Iran’s Middle East commander, Al Qods chief Gen. Qassem Soleimani. He directed the Hizballah secretary Hassan Nasrallah to sell it to two Hamas leaders, Saleh al-Arouri, head of the organization’s terror networks, who was spending time in Beirut, and Osama Hamdan, head of Hamas’ Lebanese office.

The Soleimani plan hinges on Hizballah raising a new Palestinian force of 3,000 recruits from the Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon under the label of “The Hamas Return,” the sequel to the “March of Return” applied to the violence emanating from Gaza in the past year. These recruits would undergo a special three-month training course, at the end of which they would be given arms, including heavy artillery and short-range surface rockets, and posted in South Lebanon opposite the Israeli border. But before then, the first Palestinian recruits were to be placed in position in time for Israel’s Independence Day on May 9.

Additional features of Soleimani’s project:

  1. Hamas’ new northern front would be activated in coordination with the Gaza violence, creating a seesaw of terror against Israel.
  2. Israel’s military reprisals are expected to focus on the new Hamas Lebanese force rather than jeopardizing the huge investment made in Gaza by Israel, Egypt, Qatar and the UN.
  3. The Lebanese-based “Hamas Return” militia will be backed by Hizballah, with which Israel has avoided clashes in recent years.
  4. Enhanced Hamas influence in the Palestinian camps of Lebanon will further undermine the Palestinian Authority’s chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
  5. Some of the Lebanese contingent’s officers will be assigned to the Gaza Strip as coordinators between the two forces.

DEBKAfile’s counter-terrorism sources disclose that some 2,500 young Palestinians men have already enlisted to the new Hamas force and are undergoing training at Hizballah facilities in central Lebanon and the Beqaa Valley. Most have come from the refugee camps outside Sidon and Tyre, and in Beirut and Baalbek. Hamas has made its senior representative in Lebanon, Osama Hamdan, responsible for the new militia.

This week, Lebanese intelligence chiefs warned Hamdan and Arouri that Israeli intelligence and its special forces are preparing to attack the leaders of the “Hamas Return” militia and the Hizballah facilities where they are training, in order to nip the entire project in the bud before it is ready for action.

    Nothing changes whatever compromises are made. The same old ‘destroy Israel’ intention is unchanged. This will inevitably mean more Muslim dead. They never learn. ‘There is none so blind as those who will not see’

Their intolerence and bigotry for 1200 years will leave the rest of the world with no option but total war and extermination of the existential threat to the State of Israel and the safety of the people that were here 3000 years before mohammad married his first 6 year old child bride.

      By not reacting to the increasing antagonism by Hamas over the past year, the problem has only continued to grow, and is now expanding.

      Israel should have retaliated with Force last year before the escalation increased. Now Israel has more to deal with, and unless they show a sign of force, hamas and hizballah will continue their aggressive terrorism.

      These masked arabs do not understand cooperation, they only understand strength. They manipulate negotiations.

      Until Israel shows strength on the ground, dealing with these terrorists, these Arabs will continue their growing antagonism and terror.

    Jihad needs poverty and suppression, to supply souls for the forever war. The doctrine now is low level intensity warfare with Israel, keeping up the pressure in the hopes that she will submit: like all the other any nations before that fell before the swords of jihad throughout history. There will be an day when the cards are overplayed, and Israel will unleash onto these forces and annihilate the lands and forces. Why are these jihadis continually pushing and dragging the world into conflict….

    I am curious as to when those who have waged war against Israel. what are they thinking hen they realize that they were actually waging war against the almighty? What goes thru their minds when they realize they were played by the devil? especially when they stand before him in judgement and are left with no explanation. They cannot say they were not warned.

    • Apr 18, 2019 @ 11:36 at 11:36

      I totally agree with you, Carmen.

      There is a very good – if not the best – Christian website on prophecy.

      It illustrates the coming destruction of the Islamic army led by Turkey.

      Please check this website out for at least 15 minutes.

        Step 1: Muslims incite terror on Israel’s border
        Step 2: IDF defeats terrorists
        Step 3: Israel needs buffer zone to prevent further terrorism from threatening Israelis
        Step 4: Israel establishes buffer zone inside Lebanon, well past area of border terrorism
        Step 5: Israeli settlers build settlements up to new buffer zone
        Step 6: Israel annexes land where new settlements are built
        Step 7: Repeat

        Greater Israel advances!

        real states aren’t “created”, they are built. and the proof is the difference between israel and the phony terrorist “states” of fatahland and hamastan.

        israel declared its independence in 1948, just as the palestinian arabs did not. they didn’t even call themselves “palestinians” until 1964. it’s funny that they should choose a name stolen from another language, which means “invaders”.

    No new ideas for the murderous mohamed pedophile cult. PLO setup bases and attacked Israel until 1982 when the end of PLO’s time in Lebanon came abruptly and decisively after Israeli forces invaded Southern Lebanon and forced PLO forces out of the country.

      Nothing will change. This is all leading to Is real making a deal with the Islamic Anti-christ. Which will inturn see the destruction of the nation of Israel. The bible talks about these events in Daniel 9. If I was the Prime minister of Israel, I would give the orders to carpet bomb the entire Gaza strip and I would send my military in Gaza and get rid off the Hamas government.

      • Apr 19, 2019 @ 1:45 at 1:45

        And as with every other time the squatters try to turn ethnically cleanse Gaza of semitic people, they will fail.

  • Apr 19, 2019 @ 6:41 at 6:41

    So this is a terrorist problem not a problem of faith, revelations or prophecy.
    It is just the politicians who need to be more lion-hearted to unleash the forces
    of their agencies against the terrorists leadership and sources of money as well
    as fighting off the aggression using the IDF.
    So as I am convinced that the IDF does their job well it is the new old government
    which has to become more lion-hearted to approve special operations against the
    terrorist leadership.

  • Apr 19, 2019 @ 6:42 at 6:42

    So this is a terrorist problem that has to be dealt with with military means but the problem
    here is that real military blows internationally look over reacted so many countries would
    blame Israel for being evil. So there are 3 options:
    1st go in and finish them off while this requires heavy bombings to prepare the battle field in favor of the invading IDF
    2nd do some policing as it has been done all the time by throwing stun grenades or destroying empty buildings again to show that the IDF has bombs.
    3rd send agents to hunt down and neutralize the leaders of the terrorist organizations, as terror is an Iran financed business it can be shut down by cutting the stream of money and destroying the leadership.

    I strongly recommend the 3rd option combined with some cover operation which could be a mixture of 2 and 3.
    But I guess that the offices in Israel know exactly where to strike but the government needs to approve such operations. Lets hope for the new coalition to be more lion-hearted to strike.

    BTW if debka writes the names of the terrorist leaders, one can be sure that intelligence officers know the brand of milk they pour into their coffee.

  • Apr 19, 2019 @ 6:47 at 6:47
