The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) have finalized plans to wage different kinds of attacks, ground and artillery, in the Lebanese and Syrian territories, the Israeli media reported.

Israeli reports said that the Israeli Defense Forces staged a ‘large-scale’ drill last week to prepare for a potential ground operation into Syria in the event of an attack by Syria-based militants or by Hezbollah fighters.

Israeli channel 10 reported on Sunday that the last week drill included preparation for a scenario in which Takfiri militants launch a sophisticated, multi-pronged attack on Israeli troops, similar to attacks against Egyptian security forces in Sinai in recent months.

The channel 10 said that the IDF also planning for a possible Hezbollah offensive directed by Iran, with an IDF source saying that hundreds of Hezbollah members are present in the Golan.

For its part, Israeli channel 2 also reported the Israeli maneuver, noting that there have been Israeli concerns from the cooperation taking place between Hezbollah and the Lebanese army.

Hezbollah has “upped its presence on the Lebanese side of the border with Israel, joining the Lebanese Army on patrols and exercises, despite limitations” set on the resistance group under the international resolution adopted by the United Nations Security Council, 1701, which has ended the Israeli war on Lebanon in 2006, known as July war, Channel 2 said in Sunday report.

Meanwhile, military and security correspondent for Israeli Channel 2, Roni Daniel, noted that the Lebanese resistance movement is the only party which fought Israel.

It is important to stress that all operations we had seen on the border with Golan were carried out by Hezbollah and its allies, Daniel said.

“Syrian rebels, the global Jihadist network (al-Qaeda) or ISIL (so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Levant) haven’t fired any shot on Israel, although they are positioned along the border with Israel except for some pockets located near the Druze town of Hader, which lies near Quneitra,” Daniel said.

In the same context, a senior officer in the Israeli Northern Command stressed that ISIL “poses no noticeable threat on the state of Israel,” noting that the Takfiri group lacks the strategic military power.

So….get ready for false flag operations by the Israelis that appear to have been carried out by Hezbollah, but instead were perpetrated by themselves – to justify an attack against Hezbollah. It will be a broad based attack that probably will also target the Assad forces. That is why people with a HEART and belief in God should be daily praying that GOD will totally prevent and thwart all such false flag operations and any subsequent attacks against Hezbollah and the pro-Assad forces.
