Report: Hezbollah and Syria are Behind New Lebanese flotilla

(IDF) A report by the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center reveals the true organizers and supporters of the Lebanese provocation flotilla to the Gaza Strip

"We estimate that the purchase of the ships and the organization of the flotilla were carried out with the involvement and help of Syria and Hezbollah," thus reported the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center (ITIC) on Tuesday (June 22). According to ITIC, Hezbollah and Syria do not want to reveal their true identity out of fear of complications with Israel, and are thus trying to hide behind the identity of fictitious spearhead organizations and operatives who are irrelevant to Lebanese inner politics.

This is a well-tried system of using fictitious terror organizations in order to hide the identity of the real organizations. The central operatives being credited with standing behind the provocation flotilla from Lebanon to the Gaza Strip are junior ranking operatives without relevance in Lebanese inner politics, who belong to organizations supporting Hezbollah and Syria.

Hezbollah supports the continuation of sending flotillas to Israel. During an assembly held following the take-over of the Turkish Mavi Marmara ship, the Secretary General of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, emphasized that more and more ships should depart for the Gaza Strip, and that more Lebanese should participate in the flotilla operations. "Today, the European delegation announced that it has called for participation in a second flotilla, and it has already received hundreds of requests from Europe. Where are the Arabs? Where are the Muslims? Where are the Arab and Islamic peoples?" said Nasrallah.

Strong involvement of Hezbollah-related media

Nevertheless, Hezbollah is careful not to identify itself openly as connected to the Lebanese flotilla, fearing complication of political issues with Israel and also understanding that this will clash with the image of the flotilla as a humanitarian aid effort. In response to the various reports on the matter, Hezbollah has published an explicit denial of its involvement. The announcement emphasized that the organization does not wish to be involved in the events in order not to provide Israel with a pretext. Yasser Qashlak, the Palestinian organizer, also claims that there is no connection whatsoever between the ships and Hamas, Hezbollah or Iran.

Despite that, before the provocative incidents at sea and especially after them, the public relations department of Hezbollah extensively covered the events. A strong involvement of Hezbollah-related media can also be seen regarding the Lebanese flotilla, as the events are covered in order to enforce their media effect
