Hezbollah Claims It Ambushed Four IDF Soldiers

The IDF reported Wednesday that four soldiers were wounded at the Lebanese border in “operational activity.” No names, No location. No nothing. Now Hezbollah says, “We did it.” IDF replies: "No Comment."

Hezbollah claims it “ambushed” the four soldiers who allegedly crossed the Lebanese border between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning and suffered light to moderate wounds from two explosions. An IDF spokesman told The Jewish Press on the report, “No comment.”

The Hezbollah-linked Lebanese Al Akhbar daily reported Thursday, “The enemy blundered when they violated the border with Lebanon, and fell into a trap that only the resistance could set. Only Hezbollah can make bombs that blow up Israelis.”

The claim can be discounted to a large extent because it was issued 24 hours after the incident, and Hezbollah probably took advantage of the information vacuum to score propaganda points.

On the other hand, the IDF’s silence leaves open the possibility for speculation. The most desirable scenario is that the elite combat soldiers were on a patrol beyond the border fence, which in some places is several hundred feet inside the border or at a disputed area. It is heavily mined, and the land mines that exploded may have been planted long ago instead of being part of an ambush.

The Lebanese army stated that the “Israel enemy had infiltrated  approximately 1,300 feet beyond the fence, and the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) said there was blood at the scene.

The IDF unit, which UNIFIL said was comprised of 10 soldiers, retreated with the wounded soldiers and with the aid of light flares, and were rushed to a hospital in Nahariya, on the Mediterranean Coast.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu commented after the incident, “Our soldiers defend us and our borders, which is what they were doing last night. We will continue to react to defend Israel’s borders.”

Lebanon said it will file a complaint with the United Nations Security Council for a “blatant violation of Lebanese sovereignty and of UN resolution 1701”, which ended the second Lebanese war in 2006. Hezbollah was supposed to have been disarmed, according to the same agreement.

    So, now what Hezbollah is saying is "we're up to our kaffiyahs in Syria, so Israel can come and bomb the daylights out of us, and nobody will care anymore because we've alienated half the Arab world by throwing our lot in with Assad".

    Stupid is as stupid does.

  3. In one night from evening to dawn, Damascus will be removed from being a city by God. Most people don’t know that Damascus Syria has historically remained inhabited from the time of it’s founding until today. Despite military losses it has always been populated. YET ISAIAH 17 SAYS THAT GOD WILL TAKE IT AWAY FROM BEING A CITY. That’s a permanent statement by God, not a temporary one! That has not happened as of yet. What could cause that? God could do this any way that he wished to. One possibility is if Syria attacks Israel with WMD’s the only way to stop it soon enough to save the nation would likely be a nuclear strike on Damascus and possibly other targets as well. If God chooses to use mans weapons of mass destruction as one of the tools to bring that about then today’s news concerning Assad should get you interested enough to take a longer look at Isaiah 17. I’m not saying it is “without question”, but without question it looks like it is VERY LIKELY. In addition Iran continues determined in it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Yet here we are with the clock ticking. In July of 2012 I wrote a small book that lists some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

  4. As long as Arabs are killing Arabs, I don't have a problem with it.

  5. Benjamin Fox says:

    4 dead IDF, should be 8 dead Hizbollah idiots but then I should say 80 dead idiots as the IDF is worth more then any Islamist jerks.

  6. Radha Wolf says:

    They are not dead Sir. they were injured and taken to the hospitals, the four soldiers are very much alive Thank God

  7. Benjamin Fox says:

    I didn't read that but will take your word for it and thankful God spared their lives as they are brave men and women in the IDF and support them at all times, wish I were young enough to join up with them. God Bless Israel.
