Look out. War could be coming. Hezbollah’s military strength grew significantly in the years that Obama was president. Iran brazenly funded and transferred sophisticated weapons to Hezbollah during the Obama years. Iran knew that they had an unofficial friend in Obama, who would do next to nothing to stop their hegemony, aggression, and terror.
Since 2013, Iran has been trying to arm Hezbollah with precision guided missiles that could hit almost any target in Israel. In 2015, Obama’s JCPOA showered Iran with billions of dollars in sanctions relief plus $1.5 billion in cash, which allowed Iran to strengthen Hezbollah (along with Hamas and Islamic Jihad) even further. Today, Hezbollah is a massive jihad army, that has greater strength and capability then most NATO members.
HEZBOLLAH TO RESPOND WITHIN 72 HOURS:
Hezbollah planning to retaliate for ‘Israeli’ attacks, aims to kill 2-3 Israelis, report says.
Israel National News, August 30, 2019:
Hezbollah plans to retaliate for attacks it believes were perpetrated by Israel within 72 hours, Kuwait’s Al Rai newspaper reported.
According to the “Opposition Force” sources, Hezbollah is aiming to exact a price similar to the one it paid, by taking the lives of two or three Israelis.
Quoting Al Rai‘s report, Walla! noted that the sources claimed Israel has information on thousands of Hezbollah bases in southern Lebanon, the Beqaa Valley, and other areas, all of which may be targeted. As a result, these bases are expected to be evacuated if Hezbollah attacks Israeli targets.
THE SOURCES ALSO SAID THAT THE US AND FRANCE ARE TRYING TO CALM HEZBOLLAH LEADER HASSAN NASRALLAH, AND TOLD HIM THAT ISRAEL WILL NOT RETALIATE IF THE TERROR ORGANIZATION DOWNS A UAV. HOWEVER, THE SOURCES ADDED THAT HEZBOLLAH REJECTED THE OFFER.
On Thursday, the US announced sanctions in Lebanon and Oman aimed at shutting down financing to Hezbollah and Hamas.
Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu praised the decision, saying: “I commend President Trump and the American administration for the important decision to impose sanctions on a Lebanese bank that serves as an Iranian financing arm for the Hezbollah terrorist organization. This is an important step designed to put pressure on Iran and its proxies, which are acting against the State of Israel. I also call on other countries to take action against the Iranian aggression in the Middle East.”

On Sunday, the head of Lebanon-based Hezbollah terrorist organization on Sunday denounced an alleged “drone attack” targeting the Lebanese Shiite movement’s Beirut stronghold, vowing to “do everything” to thwart Israeli attacks.
Nasrallah claimed the Israeli strikes killed two Hezbollah terrorists.
