Hezbullah to back Iran by attacking Israel?

The IDF's Northern command is preparing for the possibility that Hezbullah will attack Israel in order to divert attention from what's going on in Iran.
Tehran could activate Hezbollah forces to attack Israel along the northern border in an effort to stave off domestic pressures within Iran, according to assessments in the IDF’s Northern Command.

The concern within the army is that if the regime in Tehran feels under pressure due to anti-government demonstrations it will try to initiate an attack on an Israeli target – either overseas or near the border – to divert attention from its own troubles.


“There has always been one common enemy for the Islamic world, and that is Israel,” a senior defense official said. “Israel will then need to consider how to respond to the attack, and depending on its response, if the conflict develops the world will be focused on Israel and not on what is happening on the streets of Tehran.”

Israel will likely destroy Hezbollah regardless of the price it has to pay in world opinion.

Nasrallah may or may not care about the consequences of an attack upon Israel. But its safe to say other Lebanese however much they hate Israel, would like to avoid a war that serves Iran's interests and not that of Lebanon.

Demonstrations in Iran and the regime's brutal response have barely had a mention in the British media.
