Lebanese Army Complicit In Attacks On Israeli Forces

Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives
In a televised speech, Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Wednesday backed the government's decision to deploy the Lebanese army in the south as a way to help change U.N. draft resolution seeking to halt the fighting in Lebanon (Source). Haven't you been wondering why Nasrallah would be so quick to endorse the plan?
We've been hearing a lot about the human tragedy of Israeli attacks in Lebanon, and how Lebanon has been the "victim" of the Hezbollah's war with Israel, and vice-versa. While very true to the extent that all civilian deaths, even more so than deaths between combatants, are human tragedies and regretable, and all are victims, just how innocent the government of the Lebanese people is innocent depends upon their complicity in Hezbollah's war with Israel. However, if the Lebanese Army participated in attacks on Israeli forces, particularly early-on in the conflict, than the Lebanese Army is as much the enemy of Israel as is Hezbollah, and having the Lebanese Army in southern Lebanon, as suggested by Lebanon and the UN would be absolutely ludicrous, it would be like putting Hezabollah in southern Lebanon to keep Hezbollah from attacking Israel. Sound nuts? It is! No wonder Hezbollah was so quick to endorse the plan.

Well, it turns out that when the Israeli Sa'ar 5 class missile corvette, enforcing the naval blockade off Lebanon, was struck by a C-802 radar-guided anti-ship cruise missile, an Iranian-made version of a missile known as the Chinese silkworm, it claimed the lives of four soldiers and the ship had to return to port. It was assumed "that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard corp personnel stationed in Lebanon would assist Hezbollah in the technical operation of this equipment. What was a surprise is that a Lebanese Armed Forces naval radar station was used and it was used to lock on the ship. Debbie at Right Truth has the story:

Everyone knows that Iran and Syria have been assisting the terrorist group Hezbollah by sending both soldiers and weapons to be used against Israel. What we have not known, for sure, is that Lebanon not only knows this, they have been assisting the flow of weapons from Iran, through Syria, into Lebanon, and into the hands of Hezbollah. They cannot act like the innocents in this conflict.
