Debka: Hezballah Command 'Based In Syria' Smuggling Rockets Into Lebanon

Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives

DEBKAfile (via Israelinsider) cites military sources in claiming that Hezbollah's rocket offensive is being orchestrated from a rear command located in the Syrian town of Anjar, just over the border from the Lebanese town of Az Zabdani:

The command center is reportedly manned by Iranian and Hezbollah officers, who take their orders from Syrian military intelligence in Damascus to which Iranian Revolutionary Guards intelligence officers are attached, headed by a general from one of Syria?s surface missile brigades.

To keep the rockets firing without interruption, the joint Hizballah-Syrian-Iranian command uses smuggling rings to bring supplies into Lebanon using mules and donkeys on mountain paths on the frontier. Debka quotes an Israeli officer as saying "We can go on bombing Lebanon for many weeks, but that will not stop the rockets."

Israel is at war with Syria and Iran by proxy, yet Syria and Iran are escaping the well-deserved repercussions from, and the consequences of, their actions. Why, and for how long?
