Syria, Israel, Lebanon: Armed Forces On Alert
April 7, 2008 | 0853 GMT
Syria has placed its armed forces on a higher state of alert because it is aware that Hezbollah is planning an attack against Israel soon for the killing of Hezbollah commander Imad Mughniyeh, Israeli television Channel 2 has reported, Israel National News said April 7. Al Arabiya reported that Lebanon’s military ordered residents of southern villages to leave the border with Israel. Meanwhile, sources in the Syrian capital reportedly said the investigation into Mughniyeh’s killing determined that foreigners were behind it. Former Syrian Vice President Khalim Khaddam told a Lebanese newspaper the head of Syrian intelligence was fired because his investigation revealed that those who planned the killing came from within Syria.

Israel: Preparations For Possible War Underway
April 7, 2008 | 1740 GMT
Israel is making preparations for possible war in the region, an Israeli source told Stratfor April 7. In the next few days, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) will attempt to shoot down a target designed to mimic the Iranian Shabab 3 over the Mediterranean Sea. In addition, the Syrians have been told through Mossad back channels that if Hezbollah attacks a high-value Jewish target anywhere in the world in retaliation for Imad Mughniyah’s death, the IDF will retaliate with massive force against Syria. Finally, quiet IDF testing and drills have been rehearsed practicing for situations in which there is a tremendous loss of Israeli lives, such as a loss of 50 percent of the country’s doctors due to a nuclear strike.
