Israel attacks Hezbollah base deep in Lebanon

Looks like Israel is trying to mount a major attack to totally clean out the leadership.
The Hizballah’s Beqaa commander Muhammad Yazbek is reported by DEBKAfile’s exclusive sources as having converted the Dar al Hikmeh Hospital in the village into the headquarters for his staff. Israel troops who made for this target are engaged in heavy clashes around the building.

Lebanese witnesses report an unprecedented number of Israeli warplanes over the Beqaa valley Tuesday night and aerial strikes against five Hizballah positions near Baalbek. From the Mediterranean, Israel naval artillery pounded Hizballah rocket sites on the Lebanese shore.

DEBKAfile’s senior military sources report Israel is going all out Tuesday night in an effort to finally overwhelm Hizballah on all fronts and generate conditions for the deployment of a multinational force in South Lebanon.

LOL! About time! It would seem that they are going to make sure nobody can say that it was either a draw or that Hezbollah won in any way.

Neither Syria or Iran is going to make a move on Israel at this time, not for Hezbollah. They are keenly aware of the fact that Israel has non-conventional weapons and will use them if their existance is in danger.

Maybe this will come to a head soon.
