israel Wants The Litani River Desperately: More Israeli Provocations In Southern Lebanon!

Israel is in a very desperate situation that is not being told over the MSM... It has refused common sense in practicing water conservation and instead has wasted its precious fresh water supplies to the point now that it needs to obtain a new source of fresh clean water desperately.

With that in mind, the criminal Zionists in Israel have been looking at the Litani River that flows through southern Lebanon and have coveted this river as the solution to its fresh water shortages. THIS is exactly why the criminal Israelis have been trying to provoke the Lebanese to the point that they will launch a new invasion of southern Lebanon so that they can seize the Litani River.

Now comes a new article from www.dailystar.com, that states that the Israelis are sabre rattling in southern Lebanon just to try to get their war going against Lebanon and get their cherished new fresh water source. Here is the Daily Star article for my own readers to view:


Israel rattles saber in south Lebanon
US calls for reduction of tensions as its regional ally stages Mock air raids

BEIRUT: Israel continued to conduct mock air raids in the skies over Lebanon on Friday as the world awaited the findings of a United Nations investigation into the clash that killed four people along the Blue Line.

The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) said that while results from a preliminary probe into Tuesday’s shootout between Lebanese and Israeli Army troops had been collected, its investigation was yet to ascertain which side was responsible for the pair’s bloodiest clash since 2006.

“We are still getting the facts from being on the ground. Of course, the issue is very sensitive and all the details need to be carefully investigated,” UNIFIL Deputy Spokesperson Andrea Tenenti told The Daily Star. “The investigation will be done with all parties … as quickly as possible, but the priority is to be as detailed as possible.”

Outgoing United States Ambassador to Lebanon Michelle Sison, in a farewell statement bidding goodbye to President Michel Sleiman, called on both Israel and Lebanon to exercise restraint.

“As we saw earlier this week, regional tensions can threaten Lebanon’s continuing stability,” Sison said.

“We regret the loss of life on both sides. This terrible and tragic event reminds us once again that we must all work for progress toward the permanent ceasefire that [Resolution] 1701 demands.

“The United States continues to call on all parties to work to diminish these tensions,” the outgoing ambassador added.

Lebanon’s National News Agency (NNA) reported that Israeli jets flew over several areas of the country, following up the mock air raids it conducted on Wednesday.

“Israeli warplanes have been executing mock intensive air raids in Nabatieh, Iqlim al-Toufah, Marjayoun and Khiam airspace at a medium altitude since Friday morning,” the NNA said. In addition, southern towns of Tyre, Hasbaya and Bint Jbeil also experienced flyovers and dummy attacks.

The latest Israeli violations of UN Security Council Resolution 1701 – which stipulates that Lebanese sovereign territory not be breached – comes after two Lebanese troops and a journalist, as well as a senior Israeli soldier were killed along the Blue Line close to Adeisseh on Tuesday.

The incident prompted a flurry of international and domestic reactions and increased speculation that a fresh Israeli-Lebanese conflict would soon erupt.

The US State Department Assistant Secretary Philip Crowley, in a press briefing Thursday, rebuffed reports that Washington was considering cutting military aid to the Lebanese Army in the wake of this week’s violence.

“We have provided more than $600 million to the Lebanese Armed Forces and internal security forces under a variety of programs,” Crowley told reporters. “In any US-origin equipment that's been provided to Lebanon, we have very strong end-use monitoring to make sure it is used appropriately, and we have no indication that US equipment played any role in this incident earlier this week.”

Crowley was speaking in response to an interview by Congressman Ron Klein, given to The Jerusalem Post, in which he said that US military aid to Beirut was up for discussion.

Klein, who sits on the US Foreign Affairs Committee, told the newspaper that the issue of US funding to Lebanon was “certainly is going to come up in our conversations in the Congress.”

“To start shooting as they did – one person killed, one seriously injured – is a very serious move by the Lebanese Army,” he added.

Crowley was quick to quell the idea that US money would be diverted from Lebanon if the army started targeting Israel.

“We provide support to Lebanon because it is in our interest to do so. We do so in close cooperation with the international community for the express purpose of improving Lebanon – the Government of Lebanon’s security capability, protecting its sovereignty, and contributing to broad security across the region,” he said.

“We think improving the capability and performance of the Lebanese Government, both across the government, but including in the security sector, contributes to stability in the region and is in our interest,” Crowley added.


NTS Notes: I hope that readers have carefully read this article, because for Israel to launch these so called "mock" air raids over the foreign territory of Lebanon is violation of Lebanese air space, and a serious provocation that could lead to war. And it seems that that is exactly what the Israelis are trying to provoke!

Lets make sure that people everywhere are fully aware of the true intentions of the criminal Israelis when it comes to Lebanon. They will use the phony premises of needing to stop "rocket attacks" or "Hezbollah" as their sick twisted logic for attacking southern Lebanon and securing the Litani River for themselves. They do not give a damn that such an attack could kill thousands of innocent Lebanese in the process....

More to come
