Considering that Israel just bombed Syria for shipping weapons to Hezbollah, announcing that Syria is going to ship you some game changing weapons is the equivalent of putting a “Bomb Me” sign on your back.
It also eliminates whatever sympathy Syria just picked up for being bombed by Israel by essentially announcing that Israel was right to do it.
Hezbollah supreme leader Hassan Nasrallah boasted on Thursday that the Syrian regime will ship to the terrorist organization “game-changing” weapons, a week after Israel bombed Iranian missiles that were sent to Syria for delivery to Hezbollah.
Hezbollah sucked an unprepared Israel into war in 2006, and his warning Thursday that “Syria will give the resistance special weapons it never had before” challenged Israel to strike again and risk repercussions if Assad tries again to send “game-changing” weapons to Hezbollah.
Hezbollah may be losing some of its shine among its ranks as a result of reportedly heavy casualty figures in Syria, where it is fighting along side Assad’s forces.
Which is one reason why Assad has to keep shipping Hezbollah weapons which forces Israel to bomb it which keeps this cycle going.
