BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:10 P.M.) – The commander of the Israeli Defense Forces’ (IDF) Northern Command, General Yoel Strick, sat down for an interview with Ynet News this week to discuss the situations in Lebanon and Syria.

The IDF commander said if Hezbollah launched any cross-border attacks in Israel that his forces would make Lebanon pay dearly.

He said it would be a mistake to think that Lebanon would be spared in a war between Hezbollah and the Israeli Defense Forces.

The commander of the IDF’s Northern Command was then asked about Hezbollah’s tunnels near the Israeli border.

Strick said that he is not sure if they are all destroyed, but hopes they will not be able to replicate them.

”In my profession, there is no certainty, so I will say as far as I am aware – with the means available to us I can say with a high degree of confidence that the threat from attack tunnels has been removed. Can they be developed again? I hope not,” Strick said.

In regards to Syria, the IDF general vowed to destroy the Syrian military’s S-300 systems if they were used on an Israeli warplane.

“We will introduce advanced weapons systems into the area but Israel has an excellent air force. I will not go into detail of our options, but if the Syrians employ Russian S-300s against our planes, and we take them out, it will be seen as a legitimate move on our part. I see that happening though I hope we don’t get to that. But if our freedom of movement is threatened we will remove the threat. We know how to do that,” he added.

Syria has yet to use their S-300s in combat, despite the fact Israel has bombed their military installations several times since they acquired this Russian missile system.

1.) They’re NOT attacking Syrian militaries! Only HELLbollox and IRGC. 2.) I don’t get your logics : being “martyred” while doing jihad is the only way for mussies to be sure to go to their Allah ibn-Sheitan heaven yer schizo Muhammad al-Shirk promised them. Death is only tragic for the kuffar since they all go to al-Jahimi, not for the proud soldiers of Allah ibn-Sheitan AKA Hubal AKA Ba’al AKA Baal-Zebub. 3.) So you should rejoice of the Zionists actions : they’re really nice people, always willing to help you to meet your Allah ibn-Sheitan. 4.) Seems now they managed… Read more »

Even for many Russians, Putin’s close ties with Nethanyahu and remaining silent about regular Zionist airstrikes into Syria is quite baffling. The Zionists are operating from Lebanese airspace and their flight path is known to the Russian military radar stations and AWACS in Syria and yet Russia does not provide its “ally” Syria with real time information about Zionist impending attacks. It is also amazing that the S-300 have never been used to protect Syrian or Lebanese airspace, despite their adequate range to cover all of Occupied Palestine and Zionist air bases.

Is the S/300 system intended to destroy pelikans on fly ? Maybe, IDF thinks that that must be the goal. Well, both countries Israel and Syria are really a deception, one for being overlooking any international law, and the other to be so stu….
