Plans To Invade Israel Are Being Prepared! Here Comes Hezbollah.

In a televised address to supporters marking the fourth year anniversary of the assassination of senior Hezbollah commander Imad Mughniyeh, Hezbollah Secretary General Hasan Nasrallah denied on Thursday its involvement in this week’s attacks against Israeli embassies and diplomats in India and Georgia.

Nasrallah said Hezbollah would still avenge Mughniyeh's death — and suggested this week's plots were too small to be the work of Hezbollah. He said targeting "soldiers or Israeli diplomats or civilians" is "insulting for Hezbollah."

He stressed Hezbollah's strategic ties with the Syrian regime and expressed optimism that Syria will take major steps toward great reforms in the face of Western and Arab media propaganda and foreign-funded unrest in the country.

It is worth mentioning that, Israel fought against Hezbollah in a 34-day war in June 2006 after Hezbollah soldiers captured two Israeli officers in a cross-border raid. Some 1,200 people in Lebanon, mostly civilians, were killed and 160 Israelis, mostly soldiers, died.

Meanwhile, the Kuwaiti newspaper "Al Jareeda", citing senior Israeli sources said, Israel thwarted an assassination operation targeting its defense minister Ehud Barak while he was in Singapore earlier this week.

The newspaper said the Mossad informed the authorities in Singapore about an Iran-Hezbollah cell, which planned to assassinate Barak, who visited Singapore earlier this week and participated in an air industry exhibition.

The sources said that the cell had gained accurate information about the agenda of Barak and planned to assassinate him at the hotel he stayed in. It said the security forces of Singapore were able to dismantle an explosive device aimed at targeting a convoy of Barak.

However, Singapore police have denied Israeli media reports of a thwarted plot to assassinate Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak.

On Thursday night, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak warned Hezbollah not to "test" Israel. "The soldiers of the Israeli army are watching everything that occurs near the frontier with Lebanon and I would not advise anyone to test Israel, which is the strongest country in the region," Barak told public radio.
