Ampuivat huti

Hezbollah's failure was so great that it could end up making a far worse mistake.

Toivottavasti nasrarallatilaa nielee ylpeytensä kuten jutussa ehdotetaan. Kumpikin puoli säästyy paljolta pahalta. Jos Hezbollah yrittää uudestaan nöyryytyksen jälkeen, IDF iskee lujaa. Ja sitten mennään taas kerran...

Ampuivat lääkintäajoneuvoa. Nekin olivat liikkeellä sääntöjen vastaisesti avoimella rajatiellä:

An IDF medical vehicle carrying five soldiers nearly sustained a direct hit from Hezbollah anti-tank fire during Sunday’s attack along the northern border, as it drove along an unprotected road in an apparent breach of army directives — with luck, rather than effective military planning, preventing the death or injury of the soldiers inside, Hebrew media reports said late Monday.

Iipojen tiedotuksiin ei oikein voi luottaa. Lääkintäajoneuvo ajelee siellä missä ei pitäisi ja kehotettu välttään. Sisällä olevien määräkin voi olla mitä tahansa ilmoitetun sijaan.Vaikka pelkkä kuski. Ettei se vaan olisi ollut syötti. Osui tai ei niin propagandavoitto.

All air defense systems on alert amid Iran attack fears — general
Air Force chief says challenge of intercepting missiles becoming more complicated, days after Netanyahu accused Iran of seeking to target Israel with cruise missiles from Yemen

Israeli Air Force chief Amikam Norkin on Wednesday said the military’s multi-tiered network of air defense systems were “on alert” amid a general threat of attack by Iran.
In recent weeks, the military has begun to believe that Tehran intends to eventually retaliate against Israel’s regular airstrikes against its forces and proxies in the region.
The Israel Defense Forces believes this could take the form of a large-scale attack involving cruise missiles and attack drones, similar to the strike on Saudi Arabia’s Aramco petroleum facility that was attributed to Iran.

Earlier this week, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Iran intends to attack Israel from Yemen, which may make intercepting such a strike more difficult as the IDF’s intermediate and long-range air defenses are better positioned to shoot down incoming attacks from Israel’s north, rather than from the south.

“Even as we speak, Arrow, Patriot, David’s Sling and Iron Dome batteries are on alert,” Norkin said Wednesday night at a graduation ceremony for air defense officers.

The air defense chief was referring to each of the military’s air defense systems, from the Arrow and Patriot systems, which are designed to destroy incoming long-range missiles and aircraft, to the mid-range David’s Sling, and the Iron Dome system, which can shoot down short-range rockets and small drones.
“The challenge of air defense has become more complicated. Joining the threat of missiles and rockets are now attack drones and cruise missiles,” he said.

Unlike ballistic missiles, which usually fly through a high arc on the way to the target, cruise missiles and drones fly at low altitude, making them harder to detect and intercept.

Iran appears to have been building up its drone activities and attacks in recent months. In August, Israeli fighter jets carried out airstrikes in Syria to thwart a planned attack on Israel by Iran-backed fighters using armed drones, the IDF said at the time.

The Israeli military said its strike targeted operatives from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds Force as well as Shiite militias, including the Hezbollah terror group, who had been planning on sending “kamikaze” attack drones into Israel armed with explosives.

Israel has vowed to prevent Iran’s regional proxy militias from obtaining advanced weapons to use against the Jewish state and has carried out hundreds of airstrikes in Syria that it says were to prevent delivery of weapons and to stop Iranian military entrenchment in that country.





Senior IDF official: Iran capable of seriously attacking Israel

IDF's Operational Directorate Head says Iran capable of carrying out attack against Israel similar to attack on Saudi oil facilities.

The IDF's Operational Directorate Head, Major-General Aharon Haliva, warned in a closed meeting that the Iranians are capable of executing a quality attack on Israel - as they did in Saudi Arabia.

The warning, a recording of which was publicized Tuesday evening by Kan 11, was said at a closed meeting of the Finance Ministry's Budget Department. In it, Haliva detailed a map of the threats facing Israel and warned of the security challenges in the coming year.

"We have a new front in Iraq. We were in Iraq in '90-'91 and in previous years. We have the Iranian Quds Force in the Golan Heights," he said. "That's not fear-mongering, it's there. And in Dahieh, in Lebanon, there are things happening regarding the threats which are constantly developing, and you need to manage that, and you need to look outwards and know that at Ben Gurion Airport, people are flying abroad and returning. Because that's our job - our job is to allow life to be lived the way it's lived, just like that."

"All the signs show, for very many reasons, from the issue of the major powers - the US and Russia - to the issues of illegal weapons, that the year 2020, from a security perspective, is a year with negative potential for the State of Israel's interests.

"Meanwhile, on September 14, Iranian forces attacked oil facilities in Saudi Arabia. And anyone who thinks that the Iranians who carried out that very high quality attack which circumvented all of the US and Saudi security systems on its way to the sea, which brought about a rise in the price of gas and other things, cannot do similar against us - isn't in the profession."
