Iran’s Al Qods Brigades and Hizballah on battle alert on day before next US sanctions

The day before new US oil sanctions against Iran go into effect on May 2, DEBKAfile reports heightened war preparations by Al Qods units in Iraq and Syria, and by Hizballah in Lebanon.
Iran’s Al Qods Brigades fighters have disappeared from their regular bases in Syria and Iraq – whether having gone to ground in prepared hideouts or scattered across wide spaces to elude possible attack. In Lebanon, Hizballah, according to DEBKAfile’s military sources, has replaced the veteran war commanders of its contingents in southern Lebanon opposite Israel with younger men, better able to lead the units which have been recast in new, more mobile array.

Two additional steps by Tehran are revealed here:

  1. The Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) have called off plans to deploy a line of surface missiles in western Iraq. The plan was to unleash a missile attack on Israel in coordination with a parallel Hizballah barrage from western Syria and Lebanon. There are at least two reasons for cancelling this operation. One is Tehran’s acute shortage of funds, even after slashing the paychecks of serving officers and men. Iran may also have run up against opposition in Baghdad and its reluctance to lay Iraq open to American or Israeli payback.

2. DEBKAfile’s exclusive sources also reveal that Iran has suspended its supply of missile components to Yemen’s Houthi insurgents for them to assemble and arm with precision guidance gear. This is good news for Saudi Arabia, since it means that the Houthis will have to cut down on their surface missile strikes against the oil kingdom’s cities in order to reserve enough for their own use in decisive battles. Once again, Iran may be pulling in its horns because it is strapped for cash. Tehran may have found that in its present dire financial straits it can’t afford to both prepare for a war escalation with the US and Israel and at the same time keep up its military assistance to its Yemeni ally. Another less optimistic theory is that Iran is scraping together those missile components for its own use and that of Hizballah, in readiness for major military confrontations in Syria and Lebanon.

      Once again, this is another example of the Iranian Shiia Regime proving they are Dependent on using Shiia Puppet Surrogates they cannot not even Fund their own Cowardly Military that are not willing to Fight for Iran? Now Iragi Shiia, Hamas Militants, Hizbollah Servants, and Houthis Slaves Drivers are starting to see they are about to be Abandon by Iran Inability to Pay for their Own Military Lives, let alone those on Gaza, Lebanon, and Yemen? It Is a Servants that Takes Money for their Service? This is Proof that Iran’s Leadership is on its Last Legs of a Failed Legacy? If the Iranian Robes would pulled down their Pants that may find they have become Eunuchs and Impotent to Lead Iran or Anyone Else and now the World knows too.

      It’s barely history: the UN created the squatter colony, without legality, a few decades ago. For the last fifty years, xenophobic fascists like NuttyYahoo have killed medics and maintained concentration camps, while living in permanent fear and retreat.

      As anyone studying history knows, semitic Arabs lived there before europe’s ethnic cleansing campaign.

        Canaan, Judea, and Israel existed under Abraham’s G-D Centuries before Allah came to Islam from Mohammad the Messenger that also respected Judaism since Islam Worships the Same G-d also known as Jehovah before known as Allah and the Philistine also known as Palestine was not even Known by Allah during those times since they never knew of Allah’s existence, but were Aware? of Judaism Jehovah! All of this Factual History exited before 1948 as well and before Palestinians became Squatters living in Judea!

    So President Trump’s tactics have had at least three positive effects:
    – cooling (somewhat) the fires in Yemen
    – preventing the planned missile deployments in western Iraq
    – scattering or sending into hiding the terrorists in Syria
    The Iraqis, unlike the fake “palestinians”, are showing an ability to learn: they don’t want certain Israeli/US reprisal on their territory.

    Apparently it won’t be too long now before Gog/Magog. After Israel’s enemies are demolished in that little kerfuffle, the Great Jewish Zionist State of Israel will rebuild the Temple and be advanced as a leading nation to the world.

    • May 1, 2019 @ 22:19 at 22:19

      Not so much about Gog & Magog, more about:
      1. Iraqi Shiia won’t Attack nor Die for or with Iranian Shiia?
      2. Hizbollah Won’t Fight Unless Iran Shiia Show they can Pay them as Shiia Servants??
      3. Hamas Men Can’t Feed Families Themselves???
      4. Houthis Have Been Abandon by Shiia Again????
      5. Iran’s Shiia Regime Cannot Provide Water To Their Own People?????

      The Shiia Eunuch’s are now known for Fleecing Servants Fleeing and being Frighten to Fight!

    Great… History has a funny way of repeating itself. Remember the second temple and the Jews being scattered? Well… It looks very likely the same situation will happen again. Does not the tanakah make very clear that the people in Israel right now are simply cannon fodder? That the cities and land is wiped out… Only to start again. But this time with far less Jews and the reformations of thee tribes of Israel… 11/12 of which are not Jewish. I wondered why Abraham was a father of many nations and not one Jewish far right nation? Besides I though Israel was made up of tribal nations and boundaries? Well its all balagan from now on.

Shiia Servants Won’t Fight For Shiia Leaderships and Insh’Allah!

          Hizballa can’t feed themselves without Iranian Money and Refuse to be Servants of Shiia Satan’s unless they get Paid? Iran is out of Courage and Funds and that only Shows the Shiia have been Dumb since 1979 and 632 Failed Blood Feud Too? Stupid Is As Stupid Proves! The Middle East is known to Honor and Obey only the Men Above All others that can bring Victory in Battle. While all the Iranian Robes Regime know are how to be Always on their Knees Praying, Surrendering to Iraqi’s and Bending Over to Drink Water from Wells Own by Sunnis. This is why “Allah” on High has Abandon the Shiia and now the Hizballa Can’t Eat Anyone without Food for themselves and the Iranian don’t have even Water? It Is in “Insh’Allah Will” that Shiia remain Servants not Victors!
