Hezbollah Releases Video of 2006 Abduction of IDF Soldiers

A video shown on Lebanese television documents the abduction that led to the eruption of the Second Lebanon War.

Hezbollah has released a special documentation of the July 2006 abduction of the Israeli IDF soldiers Ehud Goldvasser and Eldad Regev, the event which resulted in the eruption of the Second Lebanon War nearly six years ago.
In the video clip broadcast on the Lebanese TV network Al Mayadeen, the group of Hezbollah operatives which carried out the abduction can be seen approaching the Hummer in which both soldiers were seated, after being hit by antitank fire directed towards it.
Video allegedly shows 2006 abduction of 2 soldiers
The video comes to an end when the group of operatives reaches the vehicle and opens its front door in an effort to extract the soldiers and take them past the border. Since the video is halted at that point, it is not possible to ascertain whether both soldiers were extracted from the vehicle while still alive.According to a report by the Lebanese network, the operation was headed by Imad Mughniyeh, who was assassinated at Damascus in 2008. The report claimed that Mughniyeh headed the squad that secured the Hezbollah operatives on their way back to Lebanon.

The circumstances surrounding the publication of the video at this time are unclear. However, Israeli Channel 2 news commentator Ehud Ya’ari says that it is possible that the goal behind the publication was to support the Al Mayadeen television network.The network was founded by a Lebanese journalist who previously worked on behalf of Al Jazeera, and is considered to have close ties with Hezbollah.

Hezbollah’s Moussawi: ‘On July 11, 2006 I was meeting with a ‘deposed Arab ruler’ & five of his lieutenants …’

Posted by G, M, Z, or B at 7:41 AM

Moussawi then told al Mayadeen’s Ghassan bin Jeddo that the meeting (s) was per repeated requests of the ‘deposed Arab ruler’ and that the ousted guy was adamant to have many of his non civilian lieutenants present (all of whom are alive and in power)…’

Bin Jeddo discarded the posdibilty that the ‘deposed’ was Bin Ali or Qaddafi (both for obvious reasons) that of course left Mubarak, Tantawi & co.
Moussawi neither denied nor confirmed.


Mubarak’s regime was one that championed all things anti-Hezbollah. To hear that they requested regular meetings with one of the region’s most effective organizations (HzB) to ‘coordinate’ is not surprising.

    The Zionist enemy was overwhelmed with analyzing the video broadcasted on al-Mayadeen TV, screening Hizbullah’s July 2006 operation in which it captured two “Israeli” soldiers.

    The enemy aimed at examining the motives which made Hizbullah reveal the video at this time in particular. Various Hebrew news outlets were busy with a special coverage of the operation video; especially as it displays an “incredible lightness” in conducting the operation.

    On its part, Hebrew daily Maariv believed that the most important issue displayed by the tape is that the abduction operation was conducted without any difficulties or resistance.

    The daily indicated that Hizbullah’s fighters were confident that the mission will be complete and no one would be able to stop them. Also, the video reveals how Hizbullah fighters were able to manipulate, for months, the “Israeli” army, install an ambush, kill and kidnap its soldiers without having one bullet fired towards them.

    In its analysis on the video, Maariv focused on the professionalism of the perpetrators; stating, “We can see that the Hizbullah elements thought about every detail. For example, one of them is holding a red fire extinguisher, which aims at putting down the fire that is expected to ignite in the Hummer.”

    The daily went on to say that the “next moments were the most angering in the tape; as Hizbullah elements are slowly running towards the vehicle, without any irritation, and the distance between each [soldier] is very similar to the “Israeli” army’s special combat theory; i.e. 4 to 5 meters between each two.
    Also, the same daily criticized, in an article for Lilach Sigan, how the “Israeli” media outlets broadcasted the operation scenes, and did exactly what Hizbullah was expecting them to do.

    “The most humiliating thing that Hizbullah would do to us every time is pressing a specific button while expecting our exact reaction,” Sigan stated in her article.

    On another hand, Yadioth Ahronoth quoted one of the “Israeli” soldiers, who were in the Hummer jeep and wounded then, as saying that “the tape took me six years back.” He stated how he recalled everything; the shooting, the wounds, indicating that he was surprised with the number of [Hizbullah] soldiers that crossed the borders, as he heard them talk and heard footsteps, but couldn’t see anything.

    For its part, “Israel” Today reported that “watching the kidnapping operation video is not easy, although it does not contain any bloody or terrible scenes. Two minutes are enough to revive the feelings of anger and frustration for all those who know the details related to what happened in July 12, 2006 in point 105.”
    The author believed that Hizbullah’s decision to screen the video at this time comes amid “Israeli” threats to Hizbullah, in light of the recent blast that claimed the lives of 5 “Israelis” in Bulgaria. He indicated that Hizbullah is reminding, via the tape, of what it is capable of doing in response to these threats.

    Hezbullah’s image is going down the drain everywhere in the Muslim world due to its criminal embrace of the Hitlerian regime in Damascus.

    As far as hundreds of millions of Muslims are concerned, the party has lost its credibility, morality and even legitimacy.

    There is no legitimacy for a party that dispatches thugs to slaughter Syrian children and rape Syrian women in the name of resisting Israel and America.

    Hezbullah is dead in the collective conscience of most Muslims.

  3. Khalid Amayreh July 31, 2012 at 1:15 pm #

    Hezbullah is now trying desperately to reconstruct its image, but I think it is already too late.

    The party’s image is so ugly that even a victory over Israel wouldn’t help it very much.

  4. Alex July 31, 2012 at 2:02 pm #

    A dust on the shoes of Nasrallah worth more than you your guide and your Nato Mufti.
    The image of Hezbullah is built with blood, and nothing may hurt it.

  5. Khalid Amayreh July 31, 2012 at 6:55 pm #

    Hezbullah is no longer a resistance group, it is now a gang of ectarian murderer, regardless of the raving and ranting.

    The moment they started slaughtering children in Syria, they lost their chastity, they lost their legtimacy and respect.

    Besides, I don’t have a guide or mentor. Muhammed is my Guide.

    And who is yours? Maher el Assad?

    If some people dont like us Saying Islam is the solution, we will change: The solution is Islam

    بقلم : الشيخ جمال الدين شبيب*
    عالم دين وإعلامي لبناني
    في أوائل خمسينيات القرن الماضي كتب الشهيد سيد قطب مؤلفاً من الحجم المتوسط سماه: ” إسلام أمريكاني“. استشرف سيد ( رحمه الله ) في تلك المرحلة الرؤية الأميركية للإسلام الذي تريده أميركا في منطقة الشرق الأوسط . فرأى أن ” الإسلام الذي يريده الأمريكان وحلفاؤهم في الشرق الأوسط ليس هو الإسلام الذي يقاوم الاستعمار وليس هو الإسلام الذي يقاوم الطغيان ، ولكنه فقط الإسلام الذي يقاوم الشيوعية !

      I am sure you would hate Muhammed and Ali if they told you that Shiites are wrong.

      That is the crux of the maater,

      America, Israel, American Islam, et. are merely red herrings.

      In the past, many people didn’t know this fact, now everone knoes it.

        “In the past, many people didn’t know this fact, now everone knoes it.”

        Why do you always think that your view is the majority one?

        • Khalid Amayreh August 1, 2012 at 3:27 pm #

          It is indeed the majority view in the Sunni world. I mingle with thousands of people. I detect their feelings.

          And if people in Palestine, who were until fairly recently the most pro-Assad among Arabs, are now so hateful of the Assad regime, you can imagine the feelings of other Arabs and Muslims.

          We see the gruesom images of death and destruction on TV, these images leave a certain impact on viewers.

    you are against the Islamist Sunni movement, not because of the so-called American Islam, but rather because they have succeeded in vanquishing the Shhit appeal in the Arab-Muslim world.

    Otherwise, the Islamist Sunni movement is anathema for America and Israel. This is an axiomatic truth that only the ignorant and the malicious deny.

    Do you know that Most Islamist leaders are barred from entering, while most Shiite leaders are welcomed to the States.?
    Muhammed Mursi recently held an extendive meeting eith Ismael Haniya. Hamas is on the top list of terror groups in America.

    Now, if Mursi is an American puppet, would he have dared meet with the head of an orgnization, America considers made up of arch terrorists.

    I know that most people at deliberation know the facts in this regard, I just hoped you would stop deluding youself that you are correct. You are not.

    I am neither against Sunni movement, nor shea movement. Yes I am against Islam amricani.
    1 wonder if you know Tony sayegh, the Palestinian Pundit. If you don’t His site is here. I used to comment at his blog and was banned forever, because I was a pro-Hamas. I started my blog in September 2008 to expose him and his his site as a hasabra outlet. He is anti-Hamas, anti-Muslims and Islam, and anti-Syria. Check this its 4 years old

    I supported Hamas as a resistance, not as a sunni movement, until it revealed its sectarian face

    • Khalid Amayreh August 1, 2012 at 3:39 pm #

      Sayigh is not a Muslim and he can’t be trusted to be a judge on Islamic groups.

      I too am against “Islam Americani.” I wrote extensively against it. You can see this for yourself.

      But I am also against tyrany, oppression and dictatorship.

      You villified Qaradaw numerous times because of his political views. Qaradaw is black-listed everwhere. He can’t visit the US, he can’t visit Britain, he can not visit France, he can not even enter the United Arab Emirates.

      On the otherhand, you never critized Sistani who issued a Fetwa prohibiting Iraqi Shiites from resisting the AMERICAN OCCUPATION ARMIES.

      I don’t want you to become Sunni, I am not your God.

      I just ask you to exercie some balance in your views.

        “Sayigh is not a Muslim and he can’t be trusted”

        So the proplem is being a Christian
        Get out of the Muslim-Christion, Sunni Shiite box.

        The shoes of Christian Attallah Hana worth thousand “Muslim” Amama such as this
