Israel’s covert war against an Iranian shock attack. Gen. Kochavi prepares IDF counter-offensive

The Yom Kippur Eve message broadcast by IDF Chief Lt. Gen. Aviv Kochavi held the key to Israel’s intention: “We will not let harm come to Israel and if it does, we shall respond with power.” This shorthand phrasing meant that if, on the 66th anniversary of the grim 1973 war, Iran’s leaders decide on another surprise attack on Israel, like the Sept. 14 cruise missile-drone assault on Saudi oil facilities, this country, unlike the US and Saudis, will hit back at strategic targets on Iranian soil. And if the attacks come from Hizballah in Lebanon or Shiite militias in Iraq, now massively armed by Iran with ballistic missiles and air defense systems, then Israel will direct its counter-offensive at those sources.

Kochavi’s words were carefully chosen. He did not say “all our power,” only “power” – thereby leaving the IDF with the option of follow-up counter-operations.

He went on to say: “We have seven eyes open, conduct day-to-day situation assessments and make professional and responsible decisions with regard to offensive action for preempting threats, while also preserving balance.”  The chief of staff was making it clear that no movement or military preparation across a vast swath of terrain in Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon is lost on Israeli watchers, in the determination not to be caught off-guard like the US, Saudi Arabia and Israel itself were on Sept. 14.

DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence source stress that the IDF is now facing its most challenging mission. How to overcome the failure of a single US or Israeli radar beaming on Iran, whether ground-, ship-, air or satellite-based, to pick up on the preparations to shoot missiles against Saudi oil facilities, even after they were already airborne. No one in the region noticed anything amiss until Iran’s missiles and drones actually exploded on their Saudi targets, hitting them with exceptional accuracy.

It must be assumed that with all the precautions outlined by the chief of staff, neither Israel nor the United States has unraveled the riddle of how the Iranians managed to bamboozle all the most advanced regional and local defense systems. When Gen. Kochavi said that Israel is taking professional and responsible decisions with regard to an offensive, this indicated that, in the absence of answers to the riddle, Israel has chosen the tactic of an on-the-spot offensive response against the suspected aggressor.

Away from the public eye, Israeli and Iran are using all their brainpower in a covert mind and cyber contest. The IDF cannot promise at this stage, however, to avoid being caught out by Iran or be sure of pre-empting a surprise attack.

The coming issue of DEBKA Weekly (for subscribers) out on Friday, Oct. 11 will examine in detail how Tehran’s missiles managed to override US and Saudi radar, how Israel is preparing to avoid being caught off guard, and how the US military deployment in the region is changing in the wake of Iran’s Saudi operation.

      I don’t think iran sending huge amount of missiles and equipment to Lebanon, iraq and syria to use against israel, and for supprise attack firing missiles from their own territory. If someone gonna attack israel that would be hamas which iran doesn’t care about and if israel kill every hamas members in gaza iran don’t care at all, and only then they turn to Hizballah to fire rockets against israel. Just don’t forget Hizballah now play a big role for iran in syria agains isis and even russia and turkey and iran will never risk this for the sake of shooting few rockets to israel, which hamas can do every day in the week.

      America only cares about its own security. America can quickly turn from friend to betrayer. America is a fake power that is too scared to be shamed by a lesser power in Iran.
      America is prepared to sacrifice friendship and sleep with the enemy.

          We lost Vietnam, perhaps defeated the Iraq insurgency until Obama reversed our progress and have been schooled by the Taliban. So, I agree with the point that USA can’t afford to be defeated by Iran if it begins kinetic engagement to eliminate Iran as a conventional and non conventional threat.

    Sounds like Israel radar is a real worry. Saudi had Irondome, 88 batteries of Patriots, American satellite cover and Aegis destroyers and nothing saw anything. So how did Iran manage to build these super stealth missiles and drones? Are they that smart or are they getting support from Russia and China? How many have they provided to Hezbollah and how many do we estimate that they have in Syria? If they launch a large strike at the airbases, weapon depots what will Israel have to retaliate with? Debka confirms that the missiles are very very accurate and basically invisible. I think we need more than 7 eyes watching as if Iran launches a large enough strike it sounds like we could be in a really bad situation. Debka we need more details.

    Good questions, Iran has said that they have Israel surrounded. How can this be except that they either have weapons in Egypt and Jordan or they have weapons in the Palestinian area’s. So the question is were they lying and if not how many weapons? If anything happens and reserves are called up whats to stop Iran using drones to hit the reservists? Or to hit the water and electricity stations and the ports and bridges. How long are the people going to last? We were told that Iran was weak that we had to worry about the nuclear weapons. Now it looks like Iran has the power to hit us really hard. This is very troubling news.

      This is over blown, the bible says that Israel once established will not fall. So stop worrying about nothing and enjoy your holiday. So the Iranians have a few missiles, they are very far away and those that are close do not pose a real threat to Israel. But if you need weapons Donald will be more than happy to sell you all that you can afford.

    It is a good thing that we did not attack Iran. We at least now know about the danger that these missiles pose. Had we attacked they would have caught us my surprise and possibly destroyed the aircraft, military bases and our critical infrastructure. We would have been on our own then and without the IAF and fuel and weapon depots we would have been in a very dangerous situation. If the Hezbollah, the Palestinians and the Iranian groups attacked at the same time and they had hit out electricity, water and command and control how would we manage? We’d end up fighting in the cities and if the Arabs see that we are hurt we could have them joining the fight against us. How did Mossad fail to understand the danger that we were in?

    The situation in ME is getting out of hand, unfortunately the Islamic Iranian Government is out of control and its internal power struggle may push its policy maker to take military action against Israel as well, the actions will certainly be damaging even with retaliation by IDF – the act by-itself will be considered a victory for IRI. The astonishing puzzle for me is why non military counter measures are not being taken by Israel and few other counties like US and UK to create a turning point. Continuation of present situation will lead to disaster.

    The bible says that Israel will be fine so there is nothing to fear. Have faith and trust in god. If you are scared then buy some supplies for home and work with your community to put in place plans for peace of mind. Besides Iran is not going to attack you unless you attack them. So leave them alone and focus on shoring up your defense.

    This feels like political fear porn. Mossad is very capable and very closely monitor all weapon developments and tests in Iran. So the capabilities of the weapons would not be a surprise. On the Israeli political front this comes out the day after Bibi’s indictment hearing, a coincidence i think not. Bibi will play every card that he has to stay out of prison. The Mr Security Card is the best card that he has to play.

      I remember a ballistic missile strike that Iran performed against a terrorist group that had attacked their soldiers. The ballistic missiles were so accurate that they hit the specific rooms in the buildings were these people were staying and meeting. This strike was followed up by another strike on the first responders who came to dig out and save the people who had been targeted. So i agree with Rivka that this capability has been well understood for a long time and i agree that Mossad isvery capable and professional. Its far harder to guide a ballistic missiles launched hundreds of km’s away into specific rooms than to guide drones or cruise missiles. So if this was well known why the fear all of a sudden the day after Bibi’s indictment hearing? Is he capable of using something like this to further his political career? I think yes but you would understand him for better than me.

As the chap above said, if Iran hits you hard and takes out your Aircraft, your weapon and fuel depos, your command and control, your critical infrastructure its game over. You can nuke Iran for launching a conventional attack but thats just going to inflame word opinion. If your local Arab population rises up and the Arab countries move against you its going to be your slaughter. Iran has every right to retaliate after the hundreds of attacks that you have launched. Sadly I have to agree that you have painted your selves into a dark corner.

    You guys like to whine and Donald not fighting your wars for you. Imagine if we had a Democrat as President at the moment? Israel would be so much worse off vs what America has done for Israel. With many of the Democrats already speaking out against Israel you just wait untill they control the house and presidency in 2020. You will dream of the days of Trump when they move against you.

    It’s time to re-think entire the counter-Iran strategy. No more pre-emptive attacks against the Iranian -backed militias, it’s no longer working….Definitely, Iran deserves being nuked. Seriously.

      GreentoBlacks… This Nuke Event is a Closing Conclusion that would not Free but Kill many Remarkable Persian People. No question, you are correct on many attempts to change Shiia Regime Minds the Better Way is now to continue seeking solutions to removing Shiia in Robes back to Mosques & Remove Archaic 7th Century Shiia from Thrones where they don’t belong! Protests by Persians & Regime Sins Of Sanctions & Pillaging with Thievery needs to Happen Faster now! Hunt The Regime Leaders Save The Persian People!

        Unfortunately for you Mr. Hamdani, Iranians are 90+ percent Shia Muslims and they follow their 12th Imam. Wali-e-Faqih is the core of the belief. The Genie is out of the bottle and you can’t put it back! You can kill a Shia but you can’t change his faith! They’ll make every place into Karbala against injustice and oppression. Putting sanctions against the army of Imam Hussain didn’t turn this camp against Imam Hussain nor they abandoned him, even after Hussain offered them to leave him the night before the slaughter in the battle on Ashura. Instead, his soldiers put their swords on their necks and told Hussain’s sister not to test their loyalty or they’ll cut their own necks with their own swords to show their sincerity. So, if by putting sanctions against Iran and bankrupting the country you think it will turn the people against Imam Hussain, you are dreaming traitor of Imam Hussain. Go drown in handful of water.

The Only Genie Out Of The Bottle Happen In 1979 When Shiia Mullahs Took Over Iran & Export Islamic Shiia Hate, With Persian People Oil Wealth Enriching Their regime Just Like They Accused The Shah before Them? Shouting Death To Israel & America & Arabia Sunnis Is Not Following Allah Laws At All? As for Water, Iran Shiia Regime Ruined That Resource As Well From Once Bountiful Water Wells. You Can’t Defend That Kind Of Horrible Record Among Exploiting Remarkable Persian, People That Is Iran’s Shiia Regime Brain Pain!

      Iran has out thought Israel that is very clear. You may call the Mullahs crazy but they have shown themselves to be very capable and to play the long game very much like ghe Chinese. So i can understand Israel desperation to try and retain its top dog status. But as you point out your aggressive strategy is failing. Time to adapt not double down at the poker table using the same failed strategy.

    It is my understanding that THE responsible response will be hit on Iran in any case, whether an attack came from Lebanon, Syria or Iraq. I would love to see how Iranians would pretend that nothing happened but they would took a notice that initiating attacks on Israel by any and all means will be paid back directly.

    The reason for this article is to try and influence the gullible evangelicals. Israel wants the US to stay and fight their wars for them. They need the region Balkanization so that they can slowly establish the Greater Israel Project against states that are to weak to effectively fight back. The US Deep State is Jewish which is why we have the usual suspects all jumping up and down. But this is good for America, we need to bring our people home and focus our resources on rebuilding America and carrying for our Veterans.

    The Deep State Swamp is Zionist. So we have many Jews not all and their paid for helpers in Government. Thats what the entire Epstein saga was about. Blackmail and control of people in positions of power. But Americans are slowly walking up to this fact which is why there is so much more censorship.

        Its so obvious nowadays that its impossible to miss. APAC, controls of the media, Jewish Politicans, Jewish Lawyers, Jewish controlled NGO’s like Mr Soros destroying nations around the world. German had the same problem from memory and thats how a crazy came to power which is the last thing anyone needs. Hopefully we can get someone to truly drain the swamp before we things get bad enough for a someone like him to be elected because its the elite that are the real problem not the average mutt like you Jim.

      Yes, it is a terrible neutron dryness in Tehran!
      Worst of all, the asphalt on the streets is not flowing melted and all government palaces are still standing upright. Not to mention that on the granite floor in the basement of the ayatollah palace you can not boil an egg.
