Hizballah will not be deterred – only gain self-assurance – from the IDF’s tunnel-blocking operation

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s principle, that action against an aggressor must not be allowed to trigger full-scale war, was applied to Operation Northern Shield launched by the IDF on Dec. 4 against Hizballah tunnels, say DEBKAfile’s analysts. The operation for locating and neutralizing Hizballah’s cross-border assault tunnels has two outstanding features:

1. The IDF high command and government have known about the tunnels since late 2015. However, since Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist outbreaks from the Gaza Strip peaked in the past eight months, they determined after interminable debating that the time had come for Israel to reach a conclusion on one of its two fronts: either in the south against Gaza or the north against Hizballah, or else be in danger of being squeezed by both.

2. But  Operation Northern Shield Defense resolves nothing on either of the two fronts – certainly not against Hizballah. It was a typical move by the prime minister and IDF chief of staff Lt. Gen. Gady Eisenkot in keeping with the principles governing their conduct of Israel’s military operations, namely –

  • Preventing full-scale war.
  • The message conveyed to Hizballah by this operation is that Israel is not going to war.
  • Neither is Israel striking Hizballah’s strategic assets – only cautioning the Lebanese terrorist group against sending any more branches of its bunker/tunnel network across the border.
  • To make this point crystal clear, the IDF spokesman reiterated that the operation against the tunnels would be confined to Israeli territory, conveying an implicit pledge to refrain from combat outside the country.
  • The Netanyahu-Eisenkot strategy for the Gaza Strip is mirrored on the Lebanese border. Operation Northern Shield is confined to the Israeli side of the Lebanese border, just as in the south, Israeli troops are pinned down to defensive positions on the Israeli side of the Gaza border and restrained from tackling the Palestinian Hamas.
  • The counter-tunnel operation was moreover used cynically to distract from the delivery on Tuesday of the second $15m instalment of Qatari cash to Gaza, a widely criticized sop to the Palestinian terrorists.

This strategy, which Netanyahu carries forward in his newly added job of defense minister, has boosted the self-assurance of Hamas and the pro-Iranian Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip . It will have the same effect on the belligerent leaders of Iran’s Lebanese proxy.

    Israel really can’t defend itself and It’s Afraid to Try.

    Keep pushing a major war off until they eventually they have the assets to win. Why wait they get stronger by the day?

        Every Petro-Dollar going elsewhere for weapons to attack Israel and others in the Middle East only goes into the Pockets of the Merchants of Death and is one less Petro-Dollar for the Iranians, Hamas Gazans, Hezbollah Lebanese, Syrians, and Yemenis Houthis to provide and live a life of liberty and prosperity for posterity instead of their choosing perfecting a purposeless process of their societal suicides.

        When the time and will comes to defend Israel there will be many we need Yehudah Maccabee, Shimon Bar Kochba and Ariel Sharon’s rising up at the precise time, as Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, and Others have chosen Devastation over Creation of Middle East Peaceful Resolutions Solutions.

        Northern Shield is a Defensive Operation but does not preclude the Preparedness for Bigger Wayward Winds of War if a Counter-Attack is required for Self-Existence. G-d, Jehovah and Allah still have provided that Covenant with Abraham’s Israel.

        These Threats and Actions by Lebanon, Iran, Syria, Yemen, with Hezbollah, Shia, Hamas, and Houthis will be met and kept in check as necessary as they attempt to use their valuable resources to build brave new weapons while among their people continue to live in fear, poverty, and lack the freedom to do anything about it. It is these Nations and Terror Groups really showing they Fear Falling from Power, so they attempt a Conflict that I have no Fear, they will come to Regret Sooner not Later!

        Don’t go too far. Neither Iran nor Hizballah intend to “destroy” Israel. Israel is giving special services to both: Allowing Iran to infiltrate in the Arab world especially Syria, and Hizballah to keep Lebanon under the Iranian umbrella. You have to keep in mind that Israel has more common interests with Iran than any Arab country. The destruction of Syria by Iran and its proxy to upkeep the Golan heights is among other aims the name of the game. So, wake up…Hadi Eid Ph.D

      Once again, Israel is being Righteous and Sends Its Own Message we are defending our Homeland by destroying Tunnels meant to attack us on Israel Borders. This send the message Israel will also Reserve the Right to prevent any First Strike Attack on Missile Site Location, Supplies, and Building them. Israel is using Patience in Wait and if necessary will respond based on need to survive against any massive devastation preparedness, attempts, or real invasions. A Defense is proper until a Major War does come and then Offense will be just as Righteous to Survive by returning Devastation back from where it came from anywhere on Earth! This is not a Threat it Righteous Vigilance with Righteous Counter Attacks for Israel Survival and all Hope that Day of Doom and Gloom Never Happens. But the Heads Hezbollah, Iran’s Shia, and Hamas with complicity of Syria know no bounds of cunning and if they come, the Will to be Done, will nonetheless the IDF. Preparing for War against Israel is just folly as IDF prepares to use Patience to Defend Israel is the wiser move, devastation can always happen later if the Righteous Defense requires it?

      The fate of your weak Netanyahu is in the hands of the Muslims, the great fighters of Hizbullah, more precisely at the hand of the fierce Hawk of Lebanon, the great Hassan Nasrallah.

      It is now at his will to down any second he wishes the Jewish PM, and this only by launching 10 or 20 rockets over the border. Then, the populace will throw the Jewish PM out of power, lynching not being presupposed excluded!

      But hey, he traveled to Qom in Iran where he furthered his religious studies, he knows everything, and he’s very good, and been allowed to kiss the good left hand of the Ayatollah!

      However, it is not clear why so many states and organizations, including some traitor Sunni dogs, talk bad things on his account and on the account of his peaceful army Hizbullah.

    I normally agree with Debka, but I have to disagree with this one. I think Israel ones to provoke Hizballah in order to give it an excuse to take out their key weapons factories (especially those that will convert missiles into GPS-guided ones). If Israel makes one mistake (e.g. by entering Lebanese territory) – which is a risk – Hizballah will respond, thereby giving Israel the legitimacy to strike at key targets.
    I actually think it is a bold move, at least compared to its severe restraint in the South.

    High Angstiety for Bibi

    This is the 2nd time Netanyahu has given the IN MOTION GO CODE for a triggering raid on the ‘North by Northeast Security Situation’ and the 2nd time he has been historically stuffed

    The world will be safe from Bibi ‘Clear and Present Danger’ Netanyahu in about 10 minutes. More light bringing presents are flying down the tracks – oh wait – that’s a locomotive

    In 2012 Netanyahu gave the IN MOTION GO CODE for a triggering raid on ‘North by Northeast Security Situation’ and Obama stuffed him like a potato, because ya know, Bibi can’t jump

    The intervening long 6 yrs from 2012 to today 2018 have seen Bibi twisting himself like a pretzel to politically survive after that political/military catastrophe and still get his sneak ****** action in on Iran, like the rest of the real Mensch who man to go to Tehran, the Clean Break Plan, and now he’s stuffed again, just like 2012. Which is a very very good thing. Again.

    Even Napoleon’s defeat at his Aleppo Waterloo didn’t stop the little red dancing shoes of this Ahab reminiscent monomessianic obession with Moby Dick

    Flynn’s collaboration with Kushner and Russia, and Kusher’s collaboration with Netanyahu over UN 2334 was the scene of another epic Obama stuff on Bibi and his Fresh Chump, and now is evidence for some of Mueller’s Multiple Logan Act charges – in addition to the 2016 PsyGroup Ops on the US – on Kushner, Don Jr, and their Mossad/Private Mossad Front dancing partners, Zamel, Nader, and of course Netanyahu who ordered all the Ops on America

      The Logan Act has never been used because it is unconstitutional. Mueller knows that. Any informed person knows that. And if it could ever be used, it would apply to some of John F.

    Gophers on the Golan! – what gophers?

    In any forseeable future the Golan is going back to where the UN, ICC. Col Liron Libman, Geneva, BDS and 1P1V1S says it’s going. I wouldn’t be surprised if half those tunnels are Israeli tunnels into Lebanon anyway, from before and after 1982

    Israel needs to bide it’s time and await new leadership as King Bibi is quietly ushered off the stage before he can pull off one last Grand Finale catastrophe for the world – I think emergency elections are March 29th last I heard so every body just hold on and keep him quiet till then

    No Bibi tantrums should be enabled or tolerated until he’s safely down the corridor of the West Wing, down in the far corner room where his laughter and shouts blend in with the birdsongs outside by the time they reach the staff offices or cafeteria

    Fill the tunnels with liquid explosive, seal up the Israeli side, and detonate it.

    In world war 1, the British dug tunnels underneath the German trenches and detonated 455 tons of ammonia based explosive. Apparently the explosion was so intense it was heard in London, and killed 10,000 german soldiers.

    So I ask – why not build a tunnel toward every single village from where tunnels have been directed to Israel. Fill it with ammonia based liquid explosive. And detonate it when needed. Apparently, its OK to build these tunnels, right?

    His legacy is as the man who lost Israel, not the man who got Iran

    Bibi doesn’t have any drawing boards to go back to, he’s just got the Hague now, like he himself so correctly foresaw when passing the Palestine Annexation Law and the Nation State Haguebait, and his orders on Gaza 2014, and now with Gaza Operation Earthberms 2018

    We all know that even Napoleon’s defeat at his Aleppo Waterloo didn’t stop the little red dancing shoes of this Ahab reminiscent monomessianic obession with Moby Dick

    But now let us see who was Napoleon, what is Aleppo, and what is Waterloo.

    Napoleon was a French statesman and military leader.

    Napoleon emancipated Jews, as well as Protestants in Catholic countries and Catholics in Protestant countries, from laws which restricted them to ghettos, and he expanded their rights to property, worship, and careers. Despite the anti-semitic reaction to Napoleon’s policies from foreign governments and within France, he believed emancipation would benefit France by attracting Jews to the country given the restrictions they faced elsewhere.

    And, of course, he went ballistic on Arabs. After two months of planning, Bonaparte decided that France’s naval power was not yet strong enough to confront the British Royal Navy. He decided on a military expedition to seize Egypt and thereby undermine Britain’s access to its trade interests in India.

    But now, let us see about the British and the Balfour declaration.

      No, we better start with The Balfour Declaration.

      First, the Balfour Declaration of 1926. This Balfour Declaration of 1926 is simply not the Balfour Declaration! This is because The Balfour Declaration is dated 2 November 1917 and not 1926.

      Why not? Let us see why not. Because the Balfour declaration of 1926 says:

      :… autonomous Communities within the British Empire, equal in status, in no way subordinate one to another in any aspect of their domestic or external affairs, though united by a common allegiance to the Crown, and freely associated as members of the British Commonwealth of Nations.”

      It is easy to observe that does not speak of Middle Est, and this is some other Balfour declaration.

        The Balfour Declaration was a public statement issued by the British government during World War I announcing support for the establishment of one state on the place where Israel is today.

    This is a prudent move.
    War with Hezbollah is inevitable.
    The question is, now that Iranian transport planes are landing in Lebanon instead of Syria, does Israel wait until Hezbollah feel all their chess pieces are in place and have the confidence to spring a surprise attack, or do Israel preemptively weaken their foundations now?
    There is no better time to do this because trying to do it in the middle of an actual war, would be foolish.
    I think it’s a shrewd move. The weak rush into war, with no plan of attack than ardent patriotism, but the wise combatant will use an attackers balance against itself whilst using as little effort or momentum as possible, while the attacker swings wildly in all directions, exhausted from his own exertion.
    I would assume the money from Qatar was allowed through because it’s wise to fight one enemy at a time, and since Hezbollah are more of a concern than hamas right now, and again…because of the Iranian backing and the Iranian transport planes now landing in Lebanon, this preemptive measure needs to be wholly focused on and Israel keeping its eyes on the road rather than needing to constantly check the rear view mirror as well.

    It doesn’t matter how weak someone is, keep hitting them in the face will eventually draw an unexpected response because they’ve grew numb to your bullish agression. Hizbullah and Hamas have more battle hardened fighters than Israel and they’ve studied the idf and aren’t afraid of them. Fighter bombers and missiles can only do so much, you’ll need to be on the ground.. something the idf lacks. Israel has a conventional military, hizbullah is a guerrilla warfare group dedicated to their cause. Russia is why Bibi is turning down the rhetoric..hahaha…Interesting.

      @DesertFOXmarine,

      Actually, the IDF is very much on the ground at Israel’s borders but in case Hezbollah attacks Israel from Lebanon, the Russians will just watch and offer no assistance to Iran’s proxy.
      BTW, has there been any response yet to Lebanon’s President’s request to the Russians for the same s-300’s being supplied to Syria?

    Whether Hezbollah is a guerilla unit or not is irrelevant.
    The real story here is that Jerusalem belongs to Almighty God……the real Creator, not some hate-filled venomous piece of fiction from any Muslim myth.

    If Jerusalem belonged to Muslims, their fictional God would not have allowed it to fall back into Jewish hands, nor would that fictional being allow the tiniest army to humilate the armies of 3 separate Islamic countries at once and destroy Egypts entire air force in one day.

    Muslims can boast all they want, but at the end of the day, all their crying and praying to a non existent god doesn’t amount to a hill of beans when they are fighting The Creator who said Jerusalem belongs to Him and that He will rule from Zion whether they like it or not.

      Lol, the Jehovah and Allah are both the same entity. That is the Demiurge who the Gnostics called Yaldabaoth the Chief Archon ruler or Drakon.

      But yes he is the ruler of this world.

      This is not a positive entity but a malefic entity.

      For Yaldabaoth said, “I am God and there is no other God beside me.”

      According to the ancient Gnostic texts, there is a creator God named Yadabaoth (Ilda-Baoth or Ialdabaoth ) who is described as the Child of Chaos, and was the son of Sophia (wisdom) in Gnostic Cosmogenesis.

      The important thing to remember with the story of Yaldabaoth is that it (he and she) is an artificially created life form said to be a lion-faced serpent, with its eyes were like lightning fires which flash.

      He is first mentioned in “The Cosmos, Chaos, and the Underworld” as one of the twelve angels to come “into being [to] rule over chaos and the [underworld]”. In the “Gospel of Nicodemus,” Yaldabaoth is called Satan, and Dante called the Devil simply a worm.

    From Debka’s breaking news article titled:
    “Hizballah on Israel’s op against tunnels: No comment”

    “Hizballah officials declined to comment when asked by reporters in Beirut on Tuesday about Israel’s operation against their cross-border tunnels. There were rumors that Hizballah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah will provide an answer in a speech. Spokesmen for UNIFIL which monitors the Hizballah-Israeli ceasefire, remarked: “The situation is calm all along the Israeli-Lebanese border.” ”

    The so-called “UNIFIL” was tasked with preventing Hezbollah from rearming and doing all of this in the first place as part of UNSC resolution 1701.
    What a great job they’re doing in implementing the terms of the cease fire which ended the 2006 war!
    And all they have to say for themselves is the very last sentence in the quote above…………….should the United Nations change their name to the League of Nations (a more accurate reflection of their viability) now or maybe wait just a little while longer until the next major war breaks out?
