Military Intelligence: Hizbullah lost its number one figure

Reservist Military Intelligence officers tell Ynet of Imad Mugniyah's prowess as terrorist mastermind.

Former Mossad chief Danny Yatom: One of most dangerous terrorists ever.

"Hizbullah lost its most important operative in the organization in recent years," a reservist Military Intelligence officer told Ynet on Wednesday in reference to the killing of senior Hizbullah military commander Imad Mugniyah in an explosion in Damascus.

"He was an expert in carrying out terrorist attacks and at the same time, he was an expert in maintaining a low profile and knowing, for 20 years, how to evade the many that tried to get him,"

MK Danny Yatom (Labor), who served as Mossad chief in the 90s, said that "Mugniyah was one of the most dangerous terrorist ever. He operated in complete secrecy and concealed his every action. He made sure that there was a high degree of compartmentalization around him.

"This was also the reason that it was hard to locate him…Mugniyah operated with full cooperation with Iranian intelligence. He was a very clever man,"

This is a big story, like the September 6th flattening of the weapons facility...so big, in fact, it won’t generate much media, as the situation is once again - RESOLVED!

When I first heard this story coming in this morning I was hoping it was Nazrahlah. I guess this is as good.

Best news of the day. Im Yirtze Hashem it was Israel who did it, because that would mean Israel is finding its courage again. But regardless, great news.

I pray that Israel finds its courage where the U.S. may have lost ours; and that the U.S. finds its courage where Israel may have lost theirs...and the World is a safer place because of this synergy for good.

GOD BLESS THOSE THAT MADE THIS HAPPEN! NICE WORK!!!

Too bad he wasn’t caught and water boarded. I doubt this Jihadist filth would beat Kalid Sheik Mohammed’s record of resistance to water boarding
