Israeli jets over Beirut yesterday, hours before the convoy attack
So it seems those Israeli jets I’ve been blogging and tweeting about all week seem to have had a purpose other than pure intimidation.
According to the AP, they bombed a shipment of SA-17 anti-aircraft missiles last night in Syria reportedly en route to Hezbollah.
Yet while the AP article notes Hezbollah is “committed to Israel’s destruction,” (which is debatable I think) it fails to mention that Israel is also committed to the destruction of Hezbollah or any resistance to the Israeli Air Force’s domination of our skies.
In fact, the article notes that if Hezbollah attained the missiles: “it would change the balance of power in the region and greatly hinder Israel’s ability to conduct air sorties in Lebanon.”
Don’t the Israelis realize that most Lebanese people do not want to see Israeli air sorties over Lebanon and that its in fact their frequent air strikes and intimidation over our skies that attract people to resistance movements?
