Al-Akhbar also said Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards have declared a state of alert. The report said the units that have been mainly include those that are in charge of arms smuggling from Syria, Lebanon, Iran and Sudan to Gaza. The weapons pass from Iranian and Syrian ports to Sudan, from which there they are transported to Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, and from there to Gaza.


Sources told the newspaper that during the first hours of the IDF's operation in Gaza, the armed Palestinian terror groups briefed Hezbollah on the damage caused to long-range missiles.


Another Lebanese newspaper quoted sources as saying that the "resistance" in Lebanon has raised its alert level to the highest possible. They said the conflict in Gaza indicates that Israel won't engage in military action against Lebanon due to what they claim is the Jewish state's inability to deal with the Lebanese resistance.


It was further reported that Grad rockets, as well as Kornet anti-tank missiles used by Palestinian terrorists to attack armored IDF vehicles, were transferred to Gaza by the regime in Damascus.
