Israel will likely use the attack in Bulgaria as a pretext to take out Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Earlier this month, we reported on comments made by the IDF that revealed Israel plans to invade Lebanon and “the damage will be enormous.” Israel claims Syria is transferring missiles and chemicals weapons to Hezbollah, the Shi’ite paramilitary organization established following the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982.
The New York Times has weighed in on the suicide attack in Bulgaria that claimed the lives of five Israelis:
A senior American official confirmed Israel’s assertions on Thursday that the suicide bomber who killed five Israelis in an attack here on Wednesday was a member of a Hezbollah cell operating in Bulgaria.
The official said the current American intelligence assessment is that the bomber was “acting under broad guidance” to hit Israeli targets when the opportunity presented itself. That guidance was given to Hezbollah, a Lebanese militant group, by its primary sponsor, Iran, he said.
A senior Israeli official told the newspaper the attack in Burgas was part of a larger plan to carry out terrorist bombings against Israeli targets by Hezbollah and the Iranian Quds Force in response to the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists.
The U.S. and Israel are pushing the Hezbollah-Iran narrative despite a complete lack of evidence. The New York Times reports “that there were no details yet about the bomber — his name, age or nationality. He also declined to describe what specific intelligence — intercepted communications, analysis of the bomber’s body parts and other details — that led analysts to conclude that the suicide bomber belonged to Hezbollah.”
Earlier today it was reported that the man was Mehdi Ghezali. He was purportedly detained at the Guantanamo Bay camp from 2002 to 2004. According to The Times of Israel, Ghezali previously studied at a Muslim religious school and mosque in Britain, and traveled to Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, where he was renditioned.
Infowars.com has extensively documented links between mosques in Britain and British intelligence.
The CIA and Pakistani intelligence collaborated together to create and run the Afghan Mujahideen in the war against the Soviet Union in the 1980s. A faction would later be converted into al-Qaeda and would be used as a destabilization force in the Balkans and elsewhere.
