Hizballah on alert, evacuates bases, command posts

Since Israel struck us deep inside Lebanon (the Aug. 24 drone attack on Beirut’s Dahya district), we will retaliate deep inside Israel, Hizballah spokesmen said on Friday. Lebanese sources report that the Lebanese Shiite group has placed its forces on high alert and begun evacuating bases and command centers.  The Kuwait Al Rai newspaper quotes its sources as predicting that Hizballah will carry out its threat of revenge against Israel in the coming 72 hours.

The group’s TV channel Al Manar claimed that the explosive Israeli drones alleged to have attacked Dahya were launched from naval vessels cruising off the Lebanese coast.
