Israel Carries Out Midnight Strike Against Hezbollah Targets In Lebanon

JPost: Israeli warplanes have struck Hezbollah targets near the Lebanese-Syria border, the Lebanese press reported late Monday evening. The hits were reportedly near the Lebanese towns of Janta and Yahfoufa, and were carried out by multiple planes on multiple targets.

According to the Lebanese newspaper Daily Star, IAF jets flew two bombing sorties against a Hezbollah post in the Nabi Sheet area on the border between Lebanon and Syria. A Lebanese security source is quoted by The Daily Star as saying that Janta is known to be a hotbed of Hezbollah recruitment and training. It is also considered a key stop on the route through which arms are smuggled between Lebanon and Syria.

Eyewitnesses told the Lebanese press that the IAF jets were seen flying out to sea and back toward Israel. Thus far, the Israeli army has refused to comment on the reports.

In August 2013, unnamed US officials told The New York Times that a July 5 IAF strike on a Syrian warehouse near Latakia targeted Russian-made Yakhont missiles destined for Hezbollah, and that the strike failed to destroy all of the missiles.

At the end of January, foreign reports claimed that Israeli fighter jets flying over northern Lebanon struck Latakia again. Some reports speculated that the targets were S-300 air defense systems destined for Hezbollah.

Foreign media reports have attributed five alleged Israeli air strikes on targets in Syria in 2013, reportedly to prevent the transfer of strategic arms to Hezbollah.

These include an alleged strike on a convoy ferrying SA-17 air defense missiles from Syria to Hezbollah in January, and two strikes in May in the Damascus area, targeting storage facilities housing guided, medium-range, Iranian Fateh-110 missiles.

Following the reports of strikes in May, a Syrian army post near the Israeli border opened fire at IDF soldiers patrolling the frontier. The IDF returned fire with a guided Tamuz surface-to-surface missile, destroying the post and hitting two Syrian soldiers. There were no injuries on the Israeli side. A few days earlier, two Syrian mortar shells slammed into Mount Hermon. source – JPost

  • Just after the 1st Blood Moon on April 15, 2014. Something big is going to happen?

    Hezbollah going to attack Israel from Syria or/and from southern Lebanon.

    This will create a massive attack from Israel with a nuclear device on Damascus, which would be fulfilling Isaiah 17:1 Prophecy!

  • Het Pastor, I thought I’d share this info on how BIG events happen on the 14th year of the a century? Look:

    1914 WWI
    1814 Waterloo
    1714 War of French Succession (World War in Europe)
    1614 30 Years’ War
    1514 The beginning of Reformation
    1414 The Martyrdom of Jan Hus (The beginning of the beginning of the Reformation)

    What will happen in 2014?. Maybe these 4 blood moons are a sign that something big will happen. Wait and see.

    Is Damascus not already a ruined heap with the current war that’s been going on in Syria?

    • Janet M Strothman

      From what I have seen .. Yes it is done .. It is a ruinous heap as the Bible said it would be

  • JM: I think God was stating that Damascus would be unable to see it as a city at all, than just a few blown out buildings.

  • Um, I don’t want to burst anybody’s bubble here, but the Thirty Year War began in 1618, and ended with the Treaty of Westfalen in 1648…
