3 linked missions in the Beqaa Valley. Between the years 2013 and 2018, Israel conducted at least 101 airstrikes in Syria, nearly half of which were against missile assembly/storage facilities. Hezbollah, with help from the Iranian Quds force had moved operations to Syria from Beqaa Valley in the belief that they were safer under the Syrian Sam umbrella. We know that Israeli airstrikes have continued through 2020 though at a slightly reduced pace and again, mainly targeting missile assembly/storage facilities to deny Hezbollah access to advanced missile technology. These 3 missions, ranging from moderate to hard, typify one day in mid 2012 of airstrikes in the Beqaa by the IAF on a missile/assembly storage facility. Note: Please read the pdf file for a more complete information and history. In the files I have used a slightly different spelling for the Beqaa as suggest by an Arabic friend to better capture what it sounds like.
The following is story of 3 missions taken over a 24 hour period in early summer of 2012 in the Beqaa Valley of Lebanon. This is the heart of Hezbollah’s center of gravity. These missions are based on a story told to me by someone who said they were a participant, although they didn’t tell me in what capacity. I have no way of knowing if it is true or not, but during the summer of 2012, Hezbollah, with Iranian help moved much of their missile assembly/storage complexes to Syria following airstrikes in the Beqaa. In 2013, the IAF started to conduct airstrikes on missile assembly/storage sites, and other facilities in Syria. Perhaps it is true that Hezbollah moved their missile operations from the Beqaa after the result of this action portrayed here in 2012. It is also known that they often put nearby civilians at risk in the belief that these facilities close to civilian towns would protect them from IAF airstrikes.
