Israel intelligence officer says Iran and Hezbollah plan an imminent invasion of Northern Israel
According to security sources in Israel, the senior Iranian and Hezbollah figures killed during an airstrike in Syria this weekend were planning an attack on Israel.
He said that a sophisticated and high-level attack is being planned imminently.
The Daily Mail report:
Research group The Israel Project came to a similar conclusion, saying that the presence of Tabatabai ‘probably indicates operations aimed at overrunning Israeli border towns.’
The warnings come just a week after Hassan Nasrallah, leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah, warned that the group ‘is ready and prepared for a confrontation in the Galilee and beyond the Galilee.’Jihad Mughniyeh (pictured), the son of a prominent Hezbollah leader, died alsongside Iranian General Mohammed Allahdadi on Sunday
Iran has also promised a ‘crushing response’ to the weekend strike, without laying out exactly what action will be taken.
General Mohammad Ali Jafari, head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, said: ‘These martyrdoms proved the need to stick with jihad. The Zionists must await ruinous thunderbolts.
‘The Revolutionary Guards will fight to the end of the Zionist regime… We will not rest easy until this epitome of vice is totally deleted from the region’s geopolitics.’
Israeli troops have been marshalled along the country’s northern border, while an Iron Dome missile launcher has been deployed to destroy any incoming rockets.
