Israel has stepped up military activity in and around Lebanon as can be witnessed by the recent detection of a submarine off the country’s southern coast, reports the Lebanese newspaper Ad-Diyar. According to the paper, French tracking technology detected the submarine, which has been making regular sweeps of the area. The French then informed the UN of the submarine’s presence.  According to the paper, Hezbollah has not yet been informed of the submarine’s presence.

Tensions are high along Israel’s  border with Lebanon. Bulgaria recently concluded that a terror attack on its soil last summer, in which 5 Israelis were killed, was orchestrated by Hezbollah. The Shiite terror organization has also been aiding Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in his battle against rebel forces, and Israel fears that the violence could spill over into the country.

On Sunday Hezbollah terror chief Hassan Nasrallah addressed the possibility of conflict with Israel, saying, “”I am warning the Israelis and their allies that the Resistance in Lebanon will not keep quiet over any violation that occurs on Lebanese territory.” This threat comes only weeks after Lebanon complained to the UN of the continued presence of Israeli fighter jets in their airspace only hours before an airstrike took out a weapons convoy headed from Syria to Lebanon.

  • If Hezbollah didn’t know then they surely do now. Max.

  • The French reported it to the UN? So while France intervenes in Mali to kill Islamists, where Jews are concerned its Drancy all over again? Where’s Klaus Barbie?

    • I have not read of any UNHRC condemning France for attacing Islamists in Maili, and killing HOW MANY?
      Islamists?

      And France has so much to condemn Israel for protecting itself from Savages in Gaza, Syria, Lebanon etc.

      Is Israel not allowed to protect itself and heer citizens from Islamic terror?

      Has the world ever seen or hear of Israel attacking innocent Muslims, suicide bombings, then throwing a party to celebrate the Heroic murder of Muslims?

      Who is the UNSC. This body of Arab, Russian, and communist sttaes should be disbanded.
      The UN HRC is a farce, and hopefully, Israel tell these murder supporters to screw them selves.

  • I would like to correct the ridiculous insinuations of your article: 1. Hezbollah doesn’t wait for intelligence information to be given to it… especially when its on Israel. Hezbollah has all the intelligence it needs far in advance of most parties involved 2. The Algeminder looks stupid trying to badly portray a leader and a hero like Hassan Nasrallah by labeling him as a “terror chief”. The only “terror chief” we have in the Middle East is Benjamin Natenyahu and his fellow occupiers of Arab land.

    • You are the tail end of a pig Sirry. You have the brain of a worm.

    • Mohammed Wazza Pedophile

      How’s the genocide going in Syria, Mr north end of a south bound pig?
      You know the one where more than 50,000 Syrians have been killed, moslems killing other moslems all in the name of allah the moon god & Mo the pedophile prophet.
      You know the war, where the UN just the other day announced that war crimes have been committed by BOTH sides, not just by Assad.So one brutal moslem government might be replaced by another brutal moslem government.
      I suppose Netanyahu is responsible too?
      How old was you child bride? 9 or 10?
      She your 1st or 2nd cousin?
      Did she have a chlitorectomy done?
      At least we don’t have to worry about Jews having inbred kids – the moslems have got that covered!

    The Syrian Virgin (REVIEW)

    The Syrian Virgin, by Zack Love. CreateSpace, 2015. The Syrian Virgin, by Zack Love, is a very interesting novel. Equally a political and romantic thriller, at times a real page-turner, it gets you intimately involved in the dire situation in today’s Syria, as well as in the romantic entanglements of its mostly New York-based characters — whose entanglements just might determine the fate of that dire situation in Syria. Along the way it introduces a really important idea that somehow […]

    Unpacking the Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict and Its Ripple Effect on Israel’s Region

    JNS.org – Aside from Israel itself, those with a vested interest in the Jewish state are accustomed to tracking developments related to Middle East players such as Iran, Syria, Jordan and Egypt. But much global attention has recently focused on the Caucasus region at the Europe-Asia border, specifically on the suddenly intensified violence between Azerbaijan and Armenia in the mountainous Nagorno-Karabakh area of western Azerbaijan. The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, while not taking place in Israel’s immediate neighborhood, does have what one scholar called […]

    JNS.org – On Friday, April 22, 196 nations across the world mark Earth Day, the annual day dedicated to environmental protection that was enacted in 1970. Not to be forgotten on this day is Israel, which is known as the “start-up nation” for its disproportionate amount of technological innovation, including in the area of protecting the environment. For Earth Day 2016, JNS.org presents a sampling of the Jewish state’s internal achievements and global contributions in the environmental realm. Water conservation Israeli […]

    New Documentary Explores Holocaust Humor, Role That Laughter Played in Death Camps

    Holocaust humor and the role that laughter played in the lives of Jews during World War II are the focus of a documentary that made its world premiere on Monday at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. In The Last Laugh, first- and second-generation survivors, as well as famous Jewish and non-Jewish comedians, discuss their thoughts on when joking about the death camps is appropriate or taboo. “Nazi humor, that’s OK. Holocaust humor, no,” Jewish comedic giant, actor and filmmaker Mel Brooks says in the film. “Anything I […]

    Tragedy Culminates in ‘Celebration,’ Says Israeli Author Who Lost Son to Terror

    JNS.org – Sherri Mandell’s life was devastated on May 8, 2001, when her 13-year-old son Koby was murdered by terrorists on the outskirts of the Israeli Jewish community of Tekoa. Yet Mandell not only shares the story of her loss, but also celebrates the lessons she has learned from tragedy. Indeed, “celebrate” is this Israeli-American author’s word choice. Her second book, The Road to Resilience: From Chaos to Celebration (Toby Press), came out earlier this year. The lesson: in every celebration, there is […]

    For Alan Gross, Cuban Prison Didn’t Harden His Heart or Weaken His Ambition

    JNS.org – Alan Gross used to be nothing more to me than a tragic headline. When I started my position at this news service in July 2011, Gross had been imprisoned in Cuba since December 2009 for what that country called “crimes against the state.” Gross, a subcontractor for the United States Agency for International Development, went to Cuba to help the Jewish community there access the Internet. After his arrest, he received a trial he describes as a “B movie,” […]

    New Movie Shows How Global Economic Instability Grew From Very Local Greed

    JNS.org – When I saw the recent Academy Award-winning film “The Big Short,” I was struck by the sheer genius of the financiers who devised the schemes and packaged the loans for resale, but it left me with unanswered questions about how the properties these loans represented were moved. “The Big Short” was largely about paper transactions, big money, and wealthy investors, and it mildly touched on the way the actual end-users — the home buyers and brokers — played into this […]

    Psychiatry and the Spirit

    Why do we think so negatively about psychiatrists that we still insult them by calling them shrinks? Some medics might be quacks, but we don’t generally refer to them as witches! Shrinks; The Untold Story of Psychiatry, by Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman, is a sobering account of how psychiatry has swung from a marginal, unscientific mixture of weird theories into one of the most common and pervasive forms of treatment of what are commonly called “disorders of the mind.” Is it […]
