Gordon Duff – Veterans Today Sept 2, 2019
Hezbollah says they killed an Israeli general. Their unit had been in wait for days, outside Israel’s military headquarters in the north, the command center for military operations against Lebanon. Attack footage begins at 2:20 … (link to Press TV footage, the Al Manar and Veterans Today footage seems to blocked. Ed.)
The missile itself, according to Ian Greenhalgh, was manufactured in Iran from Russian design. There were two hits, at least one perfect, guaranteeing all would die.
Israel made a huge error here, they denied the attack, even stating that a missile landed near an Israeli village, based on the original video released days ago. They didn’t know this one was out there, one that showed how good Hezbollah’s intelligence really is or how effective their weapons.
[ Editor’s Note: We take no joy in sharing the deaths or serious injuries of these IDF soldiers. What happened to them is 100% the responsibility of those that planned and executed the IDF drone assassination strike in Lebanon that killed two Hezbollah people.]
It was just one of many it has done in Lebanon and Syria, with their usual offensive strikes presented as defensive ones. How many times have we heard that in the last 20 years? That Hezbollah would extract an eye for an eye was a given.
The APC missiles looked like Phoenix ones to us, and they carry a large charge. The video says they are Koronets, but the short video clip of them looks fuzzy on purpose. I would not want to be even close to one of these, even in an armored jeep.
What you will see in the video below is a down-the-barrel shot from a perfect, elevated ambush position on a straight part of the road, shooting it from the rear. The patrol vehicle never knew what hit them.
