“What we are doing in Gaza, we can do in Beirut.” – Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant
Much more so than Hamas, Hezbollah is loaded with lethal weapons. Attacks over weekend killed twenty IDF soldiers which is the deadliest day of the combat phase. Hezbollah is bombing northern Israel and Haifa. All civilians in this sector of Israel have been sent to bunkers.
CTP-ISW did not record any attacks targeting US forces in the Middle East on November 12.
The Israeli sub-zero “leadership” is divided on the degree of response to the Hezbollah escalation. Ironically Bibi is the cooler head among this posse.
After #Netanyahu finished his speech, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, and Benny Gantz, a member of the War Cabinet, ignored Netanyahu and turned their backs to him. #Hamas #Hezbollah #PalestinianGenocide #IsraelTerorrist #Usa_Supports_Israel_Crimes

There is less ambiguity with Hezbollah who have issued a new warning to the US about its readiness to destroy its fleet off its shores. It is noteworthy that a little earlier Reuters reported that Hezbollah was likely acquiring Russian-developed Onyx missiles. In addition; tomorrow, Hezbollah’s Secretary General Nasrallah will give a speech that will be very unusual for the second time in just a week.

No more just RPGs and mortars.

Massive retaliation is threatened, thus the next phase of the regional war is out of the bag. The standard indiscriminate Israeli method is threated. “The IDF has plans to change the security situation in the north,” a new statement just said. Lebanon’s people will pay the price.”

In the meantime, Arab countries have met in Saudi Arabia. No doubt a lot of back channels side rooms conversations and planning. Turkey voted for sanctions, and we wonder when they unilaterally cut off Israel’s oil supply that passes through via pipe lines.
In a scene straight out of Steve Inman’s f’n around and find out (FAFO) Alpha dog Netanyahu taunts: “I say to the Arab leaders, if you want to preserve your interests, you must do one thing…Remain silent.”
Big talk. They can’t even defeat Al Qassam in Gaza.
IDF combat footage in Gaza. Tanks firing stirs up clouds of dust. And not just sitting in tanks, you need to be in great shape just to day after day walk on all that rubble with heavy boots and gear. And this is a reserve unit.
