Israel sets fire to Lebanese wood to thwart stealthy Hizballah infiltration

The IDF on Sunday, Sept. 1, carried out preventive operations across the Lebanese border to impede attempts by Hizballah forces to use wooded areas for stealthy infiltration, DEBKAfile’s military sources report. Israel forces fired 155mm shells into the Shebaa Farms pocket of Mt Dov, the northernmost point of the most sensitive border region where the Israel, Lebanon and Syria borders intersect. Our sources report that they were fired by guns posted on the Israeli Golan to the south.

Meanwhile, an Israeli drone dropped flammable material on a pine forest in this area, igniting a fire, according to a Lebanese report that was confirmed by the Israeli military spokesman. Heavy Israeli machine gunfire was also aimed into the Shebaa Farms area to thwart enemy military movements there. Lebanese forces report that local people are trying to extinguish the flames.
Heavy Israeli earth-moving equipment is working in the border sector in the Galilee panhandle and town of Metulah opposite the Lebanese town of Marjeyoun to erect high sand barriers. Behind them are IDF tank and artillery patrols ,while Israeli UAVs conduct low-flying passes over Marjeyoun and its vicinity.
DEBKAfile’s military sources also report that a string of IDF checkpoints and roadblocks have been thrown up along many of the roads of the Golan, the Galilee panhandle and the northern highway. The roadblocks are removed from time to time to allow the traffic to pass.

    We have millions of missiles and billions of fighters, let the Jew know and tremble with fear!
    Does not tremble?
    Not even a small shiver?
    I should tremble?
    Oh, shmith!

      Given the extend of IDF deployment, new 72-virgins Lebanese applications are accepted only with reservation. Martyrs without a reservation ticket receiving only sweet dreams with the 72 virgins.

      For reservations call 1-800-NAKBA-4U

        Nice Mossad story in the new movie “Spider in the Web” with Ben Kingsley.
        Also with Monica Bellucci, but no nude scenes, she is (regretfully) 55.

    Amos 1:

    This is what the Lord says:

    “For three sins of Damascus, even for four, I will not relent.
    Because she threshed Gilead with instruments of iron (tanks)
    4 I will send fire on the house of Hazael that will consume the fortresses of Ben-Hadad.
    5 I will break down the gate of Damascus; I will destroy the king who is in[b] the Valley of Aven[c]
    and the one who holds the scepter in Beth Eden.The people of Aram will go into exile to Kir,”
    says the Lord.

      what a nonsense of 3 sins if Damascus; Suleiman did not kill Hebrews , since there were no Jews , bur regular Arabs. The Jews became Jews when they were brought as slaves to Europe, by Romans , Greko Romans , etc . So the quote of sins of Damascus is prelude to Ben Eden –slavery and extinction of Jews.
      And so was is –the Hebrews became instinct , and only traces were available as slaves .
      Fires along the Lebanese border is against conventions of wars. The affect is on living population . Even Nazis did not do that , since it could choke the army that doing it . Very strange exercise — did anyone fought in ashes in Israel –maybe they prepare self ingnition or population control –very stupid…

    Amos 1:
    This is what the Lord says:

    “For three sins of Gaza, even for four, I will not relent.
    Because she took captive whole communities and sold them to Edom,
    7 I will send fire on the walls of Gaza that will consume her fortresses.
    8 I will destroy the king[d] of Ashdod and the one who holds the scepter in Ashkelon.
    I will turn my hand against Ekron, till the last of the Philistines are dead,”
    says the Sovereign Lord.

      Blah, blah, blah.

      In the chant of Balaam at Numbers, 24:20, Amalek was called the ‘first of the nations’.

      When he saw Amalek, he took up his parable and said, “Amalek was the first of the nations, and his fate shall be everlasting destruction.”

      When haShem will take the kingdom from Amalek He will make the land desolate.

      Amos – Chapter 6

      1. Woe to those who are at ease in Sion and to those who are secure in the mountain of Samaria, those called the first of the nations, and the house of Israel has come to them.

      1. The Lord has reigned, the earth will exult; many islands will rejoice.
      The Lord has reigned: when He takes the kingdom from Amalek and from his descendants.

      the earth will exult: This is what Ezekiel said (35:14): “When the whole earth rejoices, I shall make you desolate.” He prophesied this concerning Amalek.

    Apparently the fat rat nasrallah changed the color of his never-washed huge skirt to a fresh, bright brown:

    Ezeliel 36:

    Therefore say unto the house of Israel, thus saith the Lord God; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name’s sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.

    23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, saith the Lord God, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.

    Business is business; flush the rats , take no chances or prisoners. Beating Hezbullah, will get the Iranians on the street. Iraq 1958 , a picnic in comparaison

    Who do you Jews think you are retaliating to Hezbollahs attacks? This is against international law. This is not your land.

    In criminal law: if you give a refuge to a known murderer, who is a fugitive from justice, you become guilty of “aiding and abetting” a criminal, which also carries a major punishment. Lebanon knowingly gave hamas (and by proxy, Iran) a refuge on its land and ability to attack Israel from there. Once Lebanon did that, it became criminally involved. So whatever Israel does now to Lebanon, Lebanon brought upon itself. If I let you bomb my neighbors house from my house, I shouldn’t be surprised when my neighbor burns my house down together with you and me inside. Poetic justice!
