While Benjamin Netanyahu complains about the Iran nuclear deal, J.J. Goldberg writes that Israel’s military decision makers are far more worried about other more realistic threats.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused United Nations peacekeepers on Sunday of failing to enforce a resolution barring Hezbollah guerrillas from smuggling weapons into Lebanon.
The leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah said on Friday his group did not want war with Israel but was ready for one and reserved the right to respond to Israeli attacks at any time and place.
Israel said on Thursday it received a message from the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah that it was backing away from further violence, a day after the worst deadly clashes in years erupted along the border.
The threat of a full-blown conflict between Israel and Hezbollah increased on Wednesday after the Lebanese militant group fired a missile at an Israeli army vehicle along the frontier and wounded seven soldiers, the biggest escalation since a 2006 war.
Damian Pachter, the Argentinian journalist who broke the story of special prosecutor Alberto Nisman’s death, has landed in Israel.
An Israeli attack which killed several prominent members of Lebanon’s Hezbollah last week was an attempt by Israel to set “new rules” in the conflict between the two foes, Hezbollah’s deputy leader said at a gathering to commemorate those who died.
Alberto Nisman died mysteriously just as he was poised to expose his probe into Argentina’s worst terror attack. J.J. Goldberg asks if his ‘suicide’ is linked to a top Hezbollah leader’s killing.
Israel reportedly has deployed Iron Dome anti-missile defense systems in the country’s north out of fear of retaliation following an alleged Israeli airstrike on Syria.’
Israeli Channel 10 television said an official Israeli source had confirmed that Israel had mounted an attack inside Syria, on Sunday.
