BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 P.M.) – On Wednesday, the media wing of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) of Iran, cited by Sputnik Arabic, said that Lebanon’s Hezbollah has moved its military equipment towards the Lebanese border with Israel.

This alleged news comes a day after Iran’s Tasnim News Agency, citing sources, said that “the Lebanese Hezbollah will strike Israel if the United States retaliates against the Iranian bombing of ‘Ayn Al-Assad base, which includes American forces in western Iraq.”

Hezbollah has not confirmed these reports via their official media wing; however, the Lebanese group rarely divulges its military movements inside Lebanon.

The IRGC launched on Tuesday night over 20 missiles towards two bases in Iraq that hosts the U.S. Armed Forces.

According to the Iraqi security forces, 22 missiles were launched by the IRGC, with 17 of them targeting the ‘Ayn Al-Assad Airbase in the Al-Anbar Governorate.

No casualties were reported, as an unnamed source told CNN on Wednesday that the U.S Armed Forces were tipped off about the attack before it was launched.

Iran said their missile strikes were in response to the assassination of the Quds Force commander Major-General Qassem Soleimani, along with the Deputy Commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (Hashd Al-Shaabi) Abu Mahdi Al-Mohandes and several other officials.

Do you know that Israel is responsible of only 0.3% of war related casualties in the Mid-East since 1948? As Anwar al-Sadat once declared : “If we hadn’t Israel to fight against, we’d fight each other”. That’s exactly what happened since they all understood that thre was no way they could win! BTW, Hezbullshit and Iran are in no position to destroy Israel, while Israel can wipe the whole Mid-East off the world’s map… Golda Meir also said : “If Arabs lay down their weapons, there will be peace, if we lay down our weapons, there will be no Israel”.… Read more »

Looks like those poor folks in Lebanon aren’t going to get a break. Here they are protesting in the streets and trying to get rid of a corrupt government and now Hezbollah is gearing up for a war with Israel. The country is nearly bankrupt, awash in garbage and prices skyrocketing yet the terrorist organization they allowed into their government is looking for war. Hezbollah are terrorists and a proxy of Iran sent there to make war on Israel. While they don’t have a chance of winning the outcome is going to make Lebanon look like Gaza, nearly unlivable.

” When are these folks going to look towards something other than wars ”

The answer to that is surprisingly simple Rod.
Once the psychopathic, zionist , murdering entity known as israel is removed from the ME and ceases it’s terrorist activities then it will be a brighter future for Syria, Palestine, Lebanon, Iran, Iraq and all ME countries. h**l even the US will benefit as it will not have to fight another war for Israel.
It is time to declare Zionism as the biggest terrorist organisation in the world today and place it in the dustbin of history where it rightly belongs.
