Hizbullah Heading Towards Litani River, Says IDF Chief

The Hizbullah terrorist organization is moving its operatives further south, toward the Litani River, according to IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi.

The top army official warned the weekly cabinet meeting Sunday that Hizbullah is well on the way to taking over Lebanon. “Hizbullah is only one minister away from becoming influential in the Lebanese government,” said Ashkenazi.

“UNIFIL (the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon) and the Lebanese army are acting, but arms continue to be smuggled in from Syria into Lebanon because there is no effective system in place to monitor border activity,” he added.

Hizbullah terrorists, he said, are also beginning to take over open fields in the areas near the Litani River.
