Car bomb attack against senior Hizbullah commander Imad Moghnieh on Tuesday night was an evident example of US and "Israeli" state terrorism and the role their intelligence agents play in terrorism in the Middle East.
IRNA reporter in Beirut said that "Israeli" officials have threatened to assassinate leaders of Lebanese resistance movement.
Imad Moghnieh had effective role in repulsing "Israeli" aggression on Lebanon in both 1982 and 2006 and it was apparent that the occupying regime would spare no effort to target him in the category of its state terrorism.
It was a difficult mission for "Israel". but, not impossible, since "Israeli" intelligence agents usually have US passports and are freely operating in Lebanon taking photos in southern Lebanon and gathering information.
It is also something possible for the "Israeli" agents to come to Damascus in the guise of US nationals and conduct terrorist attacks.
A US military delegation, which included undersecretary of defense, was on a visit to Lebanon and it is likely that the US directly helped "Israeli" agents assassinate Moghnieh.
Lebanese press said that the US military delegation had come from Bahrain to Lebanon in plainclothes and they left for the US after a series of meetings with the Lebanese government officials.
There is no doubt that the "Israeli" regime and the US are the number one suspects in Moghnieh assassination, especially because of the 26 million dollars bounty the United States had offered for information leading to Moghnieh's whereabouts.
The car bomb attack showed that the terrorist attack was calculated with great precision and that "Israel" uses strong terror networks in carrying out similar attacks in both Lebanon and Palestine.
In addition, the US Embassy in Beirut had called on American nationals living in Lebanon to keep low profile on February 13-14.
The call was an indication that preparation was afoot for the terrorist attack on Moghnieh.
Lebanese media reported that witnesses had seen a helicopter which landed at Tripoli port, northern Lebanon last night and left after several minutes.
The media said that the Lebanese Army has found evidence of the helicopter's stopover in the port city.
However, investigations will clarify different aspects of "Israeli"-US terrorism against the senior Lebanese Hizbullah commander.
"Israeli" media said that the army is in a state of alert along the Lebanese border.
"Israeli" ringleaders are sounding upbeat over the assassination admitting "We had a bloody account with Moghnieh."
