The Israelis killed Jihad Muqniyah, a leader of Hezbollah in Lebanon. He was killed near the Golan Heights in Syria along with an Iranian General.
Jihad's father, Imad Muqniyah was the leader of Hezbollah in Lebanon. Imad was an infamous terrorist who hi-jacked a TWA airliner in Beirut in 1985 and murdered a U.S. Navy man. Imad Muqniyah was blown up by a powerful car bomb. It is speculated that Mossad or the CIA assassinated Imad. When I was with the U.S. Army we hunted for Imad for years. "You can run but you can't hide forever."
I guarantee Hezbollah will retaliate for Jihad's assassination. Jihad was a rising star in Hezbollah. Watch the video below.
The six terrorists killed on Sunday afternoon were carrying out a field reconnaissance mission in Mazraat Amal village, near Quneitra on the Syrian-controlled side of the Golan Heights. An Israeli security source confirmed that an Israeli helicopter had carried out a strike against terrorists in the Golan who were allegedly carrying out an attack. Hezbollah responded by vowing an attack on Israel. Last week, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah bombastically threatened to conquer the northern Galilee region of Israel in two separate interviews. Lebanese media weighed the prospect of conflict, with the Al-Safir newspaper saying Hezbollah needed something "more than a reply and less than a war." In Israel, analysts made the same calculation. "Hezbollah doesn't want a full-fledged war," said Yoram Schweitzer, a former Israeli military counterterrorism chief. "It has a number of possibilities to respond in different arenas. We assume that it currently does not want full contact," he said.
