The Lebanese army, which Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu noted last year is hard to distinguish from Hezbollah’s armed forces, has arrested two Al Qaeda-linked members who supplied terrorists with four missiles fired at Israel’s northeastern corner last week.
The jihadist cell is the Abdullah Azzam Brigades. Hezbollah does not want rival terrorist organizations determining if and when to attack Israel and possibly spark another war in Lebanon. However, a Hezbollah legislator in the Lebanese parliament refused to condemn the missile attack according to the Beirut Daily Star.
Two of the rockets hit kibbutzim, and one other was downed by the Iron Dome anti-missile system. A fourth missile landed in the Mediterranean Sea.
