Suspicious Hizbullah Arms Depot Blast is a Fraud Bookmark and Share
clear

 Our suspicions about the story surrounded the alleged blast at a Hizbullah arms depot near Tyre have been confirmed in an Arutz Sheva –Israel National News article.  In our post we had questioned not only the Beirut Star story but also one ironically published in Arutz Sheva Israel National News, especially the comments of anti-Israel US blogger Richard Silverstein based on his sheer over the top speculations. It was left to IDF surveillance drones to produce proof that the blast never happened. That should be enough to convince Israeli news sources that Silverstein has little credibility. Perhaps Hizbullah fabricated the story about a  fictional  Israeli attack on the arms depot  to justify yesterday's Katyusha rocket attacks  into northern Israel from southern  Lebanon.  Today’s Arutz Sheva Report: “Hizbullah Warehouse Explosion Fabricated” noted:

Last week’s reports of an explosion at a secret Hizbullah terrorist warehouse may have been fabricated, according to a report on Monday by Israel’s Channel 10 News.

The reports last week said that the explosion occurred near the coastal city of Tyre, located in southern Lebanon not far from Israel’s northern border, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of Beirut.

The blast occurred in an area under the control of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).

Hizbullah forces prevented security personnel from reaching the site, making it impossible to obtain any information about what actually happened.

However, if the report by Channel 10’s veteran military correspondent Alon Ben David is correct, the explosion never even happened.

Ben David said the IDF sent a drone in recent days over the area where the explosion supposedly occurred, but to the military’s surprise it found no smoke and no damage that may suggest an explosion had taken place.
