It is all about fear and waiting in the Zionist entity.
Two days on the “Israeli” aggression on the Syrian Quneitera, “Israeli” media is still busy in expressing fear from Hizbullah’s response.
This comes as media information reported that the “Israeli” army raised its alert level on the northern front on Monday, in positions along the border with Syrian and Lebanon. Meanwhile, “Israeli” media outlets reported that Iron Dome batteries were being deployed in the north.
According to “Israeli” Ynet, there are concerns in the Zionist entity’s security establishment that Hizbullah will attempt a attack against “Israeli” forces which operate along the border. Thus, the soldiers were ordered to increase their level of alert and preparedness.
In the same daily, the editorial described the “Israeli” scene as follows: “Someone threw a match into a powder keg and is now waiting to see whether it will explode or not.”
“This is a dangerous exercise in practical chemistry conducted on the eve of the final exam: The elections in “Israel”. A helicopter and two missiles “killed” a group of Lebanese and Iranian activists in the Syrian Golan Heights – and now we’re all in suspense: Will Hizbullah respond or hold back?”
“Assuming that the reports from Syria and Lebanon are true, the northern front is reaching a boiling point as we speak, perhaps the most explosive boiling point since the start of the civil war in Syria,” it added.
In parallel, Ynet mentioned: “What happened on Sunday looks like it was taken from an alleged scenario of an “IDF” exercise simulating an escalation on the northern front. And this is what such a scenario could look like: “Israel” carries out a targeted assassination against senior Hizbullah members, including a symbolic personality – someone like the son of the legendary operations officer, Imad Mughniyeh.”
“And then the war game begins: Hizbullah responds by firing at the Golan, by executing an attack against “IDF” forces on the Lebanon border, or worse – by firing rockets into “Israel.” The “IDF” may respond severely or in a symbolic manner, indicating that it is interested in ending this round of escalation.”
It’s clear to both sides that the conflict will occur. The question is when: Will it be this year, or after the situation in Syria is clarified?
This scenario, whose first chapter is taking place before our eyes, illustrates the similarity between the Golan front and the Gaza front. Like in Gaza, there is no regular army on the other side, no UN, no one to complain to. Like in Gaza, there is a border fence in the Golan and a new regional division with a command intelligence collection regiment and observation means.
Yet there is a dramatic difference between Gaza and the Golan, which is concealed in the intensity of the conflict: The strength gained by Hizbullah makes all the difference.
Whoever decided on Sunday’s strike probably estimated that Hizbullah’s interest – while its organs are stretched on all fronts – is to respond moderately. They may or may not be right. Intelligence is not an exact science.”
For its part, Haaretz choose to write under the title: “”Israel’s” pre-election aerial bombing”.
According to the daily, “Election campaigns in “Israel” are marked by high-profile military action, particularly when the party in power is in distress. The unstated assumption of our leaders is that the “Jewish” public loves easy military victories, and such shows of force are meant to buttress the image of the prime minister and “defense” minister and convince the voter that they must remain in office.”
“The examples are many, and they cut across party lines: the escalation in retaliatory actions prior to the 1955 Knesset election; the bombing of the Iraqi nuclear reactor in 1981; Operation Grapes of Wrath in Lebanon in 1996; Operation Cast Lead in Gaza in 2008; Operation Pillar of Defense in Gaza in 2012; and on Sunday the helicopter attack in Syria “attributed to “Israel”” was added to the list,” Haaretz recalled.
