The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have shared intelligence with the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) claiming that Hezbollah planted an agent in the Lebanese armed forces and demanded his removal, local media reported Friday.

According to the Ynetnews media outlet, Israel claims that Maj. Yahya Husseini, who serves in the Lebanese armed forces, is a Hezbollah agent acting as a “liaison officer.” The IDF warned that Husseini maintained regular contacts with Hezbollah, provided them with information and received their instructions in order to boost Hezbollah’s influence in the country’s armed forces.

“Hezbollah is planning for the next military campaign against Israel and is using officers in the Lebanese army as terror operatives who help it against against the IDF along the border,” Israel’s Ambassador to UN Danny Danon said, as quoted by the outlet.

Danon also caled on the UNIFIL to stop the infiltration of Hezbollah militants into the Lebanese army

The statement comes after the UN Security Council adopted on Wednesday a resolution, drafted by France, that extends the mandate of the UNIFIL that now has to “ensure that its area of operations is not utilized for hostile activities of any kind”.

UNFIL was originally established in 1978 to ensure Israel’s withdrawal from southern Lebanon and restore peace and security. Following the Israeli-Hezbollah war in July-August 2006, the UN Security Council significantly enhanced and expanded the original mandate.

Israel demands the UN do something…the same UN that Israel thumbs it’s nose at? The same UN whose resolutions Israel ignores? The same UN whose peace keepers it ignored in 2006? I had no idea it was the UNs job to police a sovereign countrys’ military. More boo hoo from Israel, now that their big plan is falling flat on it’s face. It’s called karma…get used to it.

For the next ten years at least Hezbollah will have a battle hardened force that will put the fear of God into the Israeli pussies.

Just a second – isn’t Israel the terrorist organization? And why shouldn’t Hezbollah members be in the Lebanese army, they are Lebanese too aren’t they? Oh I forgot Hezbollah has been named a terrorist organization. Well so has the USA. With more reason. Putin himself said 95% of world terror is done by the CIA.

If Jews complain, then Major seems to be a honorable man and Lebanese Army does something good.
Otherwise Jews would not scream.
