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