Hizbullah's Operational Infrastructure Discovered on Golan Heights

(Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs) Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Dr. Shimon Shapira - Hizbullah's operational infrastructure recently discovered in the Syrian Golan Heights is an expression of leader Hassan Nasrallah's determination to build another front in the war against Israel. In recent months, senior Hizbullah commander Ali Musa Daqduq has headed these operations. Daqduq belongs to the generation of Hizbullah's operational founders. In 2006, he was sent by Hizbullah military commander Imad Mughniyeh to Iraq to organize and train Shiite militias in jihad (holy war) against the U.S.-led coalition, including preparing explosives and carrying out kidnappings following the model used by Hizbullah against Israel in Lebanon. Apparently, the revelation of Daqduq's infrastructure in the Golan by Israel is meant as a warning to Hizbullah and Syria that its continued operation will lead to its destruction. The writer, a senior researcher at the Jerusalem Center, served as military secretary to the prime minister and as Israel Foreign Ministry chief of staff.
