Israeli intelligence has information suggesting that the Hezbollah terrorists who captured two Israeli soldiers in a cross-border attack are trying to take them to Iran:
Israel has information that Hizbullah guerrillas who captured two Israeli soldiers are trying to transfer them to Iran, Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev said.
Regev did not disclose the source of his information.
Perhaps that lay behind the bombing of Beirut Airport.
Our sources tell us that Israel does not intend to bring about a broader conflict by extending the present crisis to Syria or Iran. Rather, the plan is to retrieve the soldiers who have been taken prisoner in both Gaza and Lebanon, do some damage to the terrorists’ ability to carry out rocket attacks from those bases, and return home. If that’s right, and events don’t take an unforeseen turn, the effect will most likely be that the long-term issues posed by Iran, Syria, the Iran-Syria alliance, and Iran and Syria’s control over terrorist groups including Hamas and Hezbollah, will go unresolved.
