The Afghanistan Withdrawal Vis-a-Vis Hezbollah on Israel’s Northern Border

August 25 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Nothing happens in a vacuum.  Unfortunately, many leaders of terrorist organizations were emboldened by America’s muddled and haphazard withdrawal from Afghanistan and the rapid takeover of the Taliban. According to a Times of Israel article from Wednesday, August 18, 2021, Hezbollah leader, Sheik Nasrallah, called the American behavior in Afghanistan, “the moral downfall of America.” He continued, “In order not to have Americans fighting for other nations, Biden was able to accept a historic failure. When it comes to Lebanon and those around it, what will be the case there?”

He ominously warned, “Those watching most closely and drawing conclusions from this are the Israelis.”

What does this imply for the situation around Israel’s northern border? Joining us on Wednesday will be Lieutenant Colonel Sarit Zehavi (Res.) Founder and CEO of the Alma Research and Education Center along Israel’s northern border with Lebanon. During this webinar, Lt. Col. Zehavi will also address groundbreaking research she and her team at ALMA have done uncovering a vast network of tunnels from Southern Lebanon into Northern Israel.

CORRECTION: Bait Ulmaal supports Hamas, not Hezbollah. Stay tuned for further discussion of this topic.

About the speaker: Lieutenant Colonel (Res.) Sarit Zehavi is the CEO and founder of Alma – a nonprofit and an independent research and education center specialized in Israel’s security challenges on its northern border. Sarit has briefed hundreds of groups and forums, ranging from US Congress members to journalists and visiting VIP groups in Israel and overseas.
