Lebanon Arrests Al Qaeda-Linked Terrorists for Attack on Israel

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

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.

Israel Wary of Hezbollah, Increases Air Surveillance in Lebanon

Approximately a dozen Israeli Air Force jetfighters carried out reconnaissance flights over Lebanon since Friday, reflecting the high alert over possible attacks on Israel if the United States attacks Syria.

Hezbollah has tens of thousands of missiles in Lebanon and is fighting in Syria alongside loyalists to Syrian President Bassar al-Assad, who has threatened to attack Israel.

“Hezbollah is following up and watching the situation and will do what is appropriate at the appropriate time,” a Hezbollah cabinet minister stated. Both Israel and Hezbollah have placed their armies on high alert.

“As of this morning, everyone has been called back to their positions, especially in the south of the country. No one can go on leave,” according to a Voice of Russia dispatch quoting a Hezbollah supported in Beirut.
