Israel Assassinates Hezbollah Air Defense Specialist (Videos)

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) announced on July 6 that it had assassinated an air defense specialist of Hezbollah in Lebanon.

The specialist, Maytham Mustafa al-Attar, was “a significant source of knowledge” in Hezbollah’s air defense unit, and was involved in planning and carrying out attacks against Israel, the IDF said in a statement, adding that al-Attar obtained his knowledge during visits to Iran, and was involved in aiding the Lebanese terror group to procure Iranian weapons.

Al-Attar was struck while driving his car near the town of Shaat in the northeastern Lebanese district of Baalbek, around 100 kilometers away from the Israeli border.

The IDF described the assassination of al-Attar in its statement as “a blow to the capabilities of Hezbollah’s air defense unit.”

Hezbollah mourned al-Attar in an official statement. However, it didn’t describe him as a specialist or a commander, which casts some doubts on the IDF’s claims.

Following the assassination, the IDF announced more strikes against targets of Hezbollah in southern Lebanon, including two observation posts in the towns of Houla and Odaisseh. Lebanese media didn’t report any casualties however.

Hezbollah will likely respond to the killing of al-Attar in the upcoming few hours or days. This could lead to further escalation on the Lebanese-Israeli border.

The clashes on the Lebanese-Israeli border first broke out after the start of the war in Gaza last October, with Hezbollah and its allies carrying out attacks in support of the Strip.

So far, the border clashes have resulted in ten civilian deaths on the Israeli side, as well as the deaths of at least 16 IDF soldiers and reservists. On the Lebanese side, more than 500 people have been killed, including 344 fighters of Hezbollah and at least 90 civilians.

assassinations is a jewish deplorable method of taking out enemies, perceivef or not. hezbollah and related groups must star a mass culling of jews, enemy ones or not! the ultimate aim must be to have them, the jews, running for their friggin lives. so hezbollah, get on with it!

it is lovely to see that hell fires are raining on these pork faced sewer rats.

and as always: “love me some fried lebanosey rat dinner”

oh, and the best part is that allah seems to give zero shiits for their vermin lives. which means all of their kiss azz praying and rolling in the sand was all in vain.

it is really very funny. it’s like allah wants them to die in a big blazing fire. it is in their culture… they live like rats and die like rats.

how is israel capable of performing assassinations deep inside of lebanon, do they have their own agents or throw tons of cash around to contract it out to locals?

the groups antagonist to hezbollah (mostly sunnies, some factions of christian and other groups) receive equipments and lots of dollars from us and israel. these groups will play a major role if there would be a war between israel and hezbollah!

CLEANER UPPER

maybe their own people are fed up with the oppression of radical islamists!? yeah, you better believe that.

that’s a good question and the answer is likely that the jews are so integrated in the area(s) that it’s forgotten that shlomo next door is a jew and is working away for his brethren and can provide information that allows the jews to sneak in a team with a limited assignment, to assassinate a specific target, and then sneak out. the same as in ukraine, lots of russians in the countryside with means to comunicate with the other side leaving valuable info for future use!

CLEANER UPPER

it really must be demoralizing to the stone age rats to lose a leader as big as a wart on homeni’s azz.

and i think it’s great that their kids are taking a good look at the site of the killing, cause they are like looking into their own future. who does not like that!

:p

i wonder how many of these assassinations are based on izraeli surveillance of social media, email and the compromised encryption of ‘secure communications’ apps.
