Mohammed Raad, the head of the Hezbollah parliamentary bloc in the Lebanese parliament asked for a mere $9 billion to destroy Israel completely. “The resistance only needs $9 billion and there will be nothing left called Israel in the region” he said over the weekend.
Meanwhile, another terrorist organization shows how they too are planning to obliterate the state of Israel. Islamic Jihad gave a media tour in Gaza, where the terror group touted its offensive and defensive tunnel systems.
“In a ‘tunnel city’ under the sandy soils of southern Gaza, Palestinian terrorists are preparing for the next conflict with Israel, as tensions in Jerusalem threaten to escalate” reports the Times of Israel.
The underground tunnels “leave no trace on the surface” and entrances are “discreetly tucked into the foot of a small hill.” The tunnels are also “complete with electric lights, a ventilation system and telecoms cables, the tunnels also have small rooms for storing weapons and ammunition.”
Abu Hamza, Al-Quds Brigade spokesman of Islamic Jihad said “the tunnels have been repaired and the rocket stocks have been replenished” since last year’s war. He also thanked Iran for its support for helping to rebuild and replace its weapons cache.
Another source who asked not to be named, said the terror group has “a large number of offensive tunnels that stretch deep into [Israel] and are linked up to a system of drones.” He also said the group’s rockets are capable of reaching the whole of Israel.
“The rockets are on high alert and we’re waiting for the leadership to decide” said a gunman sitting close to one of the tunnel entrances with a group of gunmen under the trees.
Times of Israel reports on the latest tensions:
Weeks of deadly violence including a series of Palestinian terror attacks in Israel, Palestinian riots and a police crackdown around Jerusalem’s Temple Mount/Al-Aqsa Mosque, and stepped up IDF operations in the West Bank have prompted Islamic Jihad to threaten an escalation.
After two deadly attacks in Tel Aviv and Bnai Brak, the IDF carried out large-scale raids in the West Bank, notably the Jenin area from which the terrorists hailed.
Those operations sparked intense firefights which killed several fighters from Islamic Jihad, which is supported by Israel’s nemesis Iran.
And on Monday evening, a rocket was fired from Gaza into Israel, prompting an Israeli airstrike against a weapons factory.
No faction has yet claimed responsibility, but the incident — the first of its type since January — heightened fears of a further escalation.

Former Marine on Afghanistan: ‘Biden lied…Americans still there that want to get out’
Former Force Recon Marine Chad Robichaux says bluntly of the Afghanistan withdrawal: “Biden lied.” Author of “Saving Aziz” Robichaux told “Just the News, No Noise” TV show that President Joe Biden was completely dishonest with the American public when he said, among other things, that Americans were able to evacuate after the botched Afghanistan withdrawal.
“There’s Americans still there that want to get out” he said. “There’s 75,000 Afghan allies who are vulnerable to be being beaten and interrogated for what they know about America and some are executed for serving America.”
“Last week the Taliban announced that women are no longer allowed to see male doctors,” Robichaux said. “But women aren’t allowed to be doctors, nor are women allowed to be educated. So there’s no women’s health care in Afghanistan right now.”
During the withdrawal, Americans were simply thwarted from evacuating. “The State Department controlled only the airport, which meant that the Taliban controlled the outer perimeter of who got in and out of the airport,” Robichaux explained.
“The Taliban is out there checking people’s IDs, beating people, taking their passports away, and killing people in the streets,” he continued. “If you are an American and wanting to go to the airport, you have to go through a Taliban checkpoint.”
In his book, “Saving Aziz,” Robichaux goes into detail about the tragic ordeal and how he and a team of other service members came together to save the lives of some of the people trying to avoid becoming victims of the Taliban.
