Hezbollah vows response to ‘Israeli air strike’

The Shi’a movement’s statement was the group’s first admission it had been targeted in the raid, although Lebanese sources had previously reported the attack.

AFP – Hezbollah on Wednesday confirmed an Israeli air raid two days earlier on one of its positions in Lebanon and vowed to respond “at the appropriate time” to the “blatant aggression”.

“On Monday night… the Israeli enemy’s warplanes bombarded a Hezbollah position on the Lebanese-Syrian border, near the area of Janta in the Bekaa Valley” in eastern Lebanon, said Hezbollah.

The Shi’a movement’s statement was the group’s first admission it had been targeted in the raid, although Lebanese sources had previously reported the attack.

“This new attack amounts to blatant aggression against Lebanon, its sovereignty and territory,” the armed movement said, adding that “it will not stand without a response from the Resistance, which will choose the appropriate time, place and means”.

On Tuesday, Israeli officials refrained from commenting specifically on Monday night’s raid, although they confirmed a policy of interdiction of suspected arms deliveries from Syria to Hezbollah, the Jewish state’s nemesis.

Hezbollah said in its statement: “This aggression did not, thank God, cause any deaths or injuries. There was only some material damage.”

It also said it was untrue that the target had been “artillery positions or missiles”.

On Monday night, a Lebanese security source told AFP two raids had hit a Hezbollah target at the Lebanese-Syrian border.

“This new attack is a flagrant aggression against Lebanon, its sovereignty and its territory,” said Hezbollah.

The strike “will not remain unanswered by the Resistance, which will choose the right moment, the right way and the adequate means to respond.”

Monday’s was the first Israeli attack against Hezbollah in Lebanon since the 2006 war that killed more than 1,200 Lebanese, mostly civilians, and some 160 Israelis, mostly soldiers.

    Syria continues to maintain large stock piles of chemical weapons and like Iran have been stalling and avoiding the handing over of those weapons. Many of the weapons have fallen into the hands of terrorists and nothing at all is being mentioned of Syria’s biological program of the past nor of the chemical and bio weapons brought into Syria from Iraq before the gulf war. Meanwhile we have seen this war grow another faction and that is Al-Qaeda. There appears to be no end to the evil intent of Al-Qaeda nor to that of Assad and nor to that of the rebels who stand against them. Everyone seems to be un-movable in their beliefs. While all of this suffering is going on, more and more weapons for war are being shipped in. While this war continues with no real end in sight, it makes me wonder if something will soon take place which may touch off the war spoken on in Isaiah 17. Many would die on both sides and Damascus Syria would be destroyed. I believe the movement for a 1 world government would then kick into high gear. We all know about the pressure for a 1 world currency and for world peace; now the Pope is even a proponent for a new economic system. A new world order is just a matter of time. In July of 2012 I wrote a small booklet that talks about 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
