Israel continues to deal with terrorist threat, missiles in Lebanon

IDF forces killed two gunman, including a top Hamas commander in the West Bank, during a raid in Hebron Friday morning. Several other terror suspects were arrested. "The crime this morning [in Hebron] is a slap in the face for all those who are still betting on their relations with the occupation and continue negotiations with it," said Hamas spokesman Abu Obeida, using the opportunity to bash his PA rivals. The incident was the latest in Israel’s longstanding conflict with Iranian backed terror militias which also includes Hizbullah in southern Lebanon. Haaretz reported on Friday that there are satellite photos at Google Earth indicating that Hizbullah operatives are training with Syrian SCUD missiles at the large Syrian missile base at Adra, northeast of Damascus. The same photos indicate massive construction at several Syrian military bases, including Adra, from which large numbers of Iranian supplied long-range rockets and missiles have been sent to Hizbullah, according to reports in various foreign news sources. "The long-range missiles Syria recently gave to Hezbollah are just the tip of the iceberg,” IDF Military Intelligence Brig. Gen. Yossi Baidatz told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee earlier this month. “Hezbollah already has thousands of rockets of all kinds and all ranges."
