Iran and Hizbullah Are Preparing to Confront Israel in Response to Its Actions in Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq

(Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs) Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Dr. Shimon Shapira and Lt.-Col. (ret.) Michael Segall - Hizbullah's Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah threatened to react to two Israeli actions against Hizbullah: the attack against drone launchers in Syria in which two Hizbullah fighters were killed, and drone attacks in Beirut. Nasrallah stated that the Beirut attack was the first Israeli attack on Lebanon since the 2006 war. Mohammad Imani, from Iran's hardline Kayhan newspaper (which reflects the views of Iran's Supreme Leader Khamenei), warned that Israel "shouldn't be surprised if in the coming days or nights anonymous pilotless aircraft will attack security, military, and nuclear targets of Israel or the port cities and major Zionist centers....Israel should be prepared for the bitter and harsh news of the incursion and attacks by UAVs on Dimona, Haifa, and Tel Aviv - similar to the attacks carried out against Saudi Arabia (and the UAE)." Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Dr. Shimon Shapira served as Military Secretary to Israel's Prime Minister. Lt.-Col. (ret.) Michael Segall is an expert on strategic issues with a focus on Iran. Both are fellows of the Jerusalem Center.
