Following Shateri Assassination, Hezbollah Threatens Israeli Power Station

Now it makes sense!
I found out about the assassination of General Hassan Shateri in a "breaking news" article that appeared in Israeli newspaper Haaretz on February 13. Following Israeli codes, it cited several foreign sources, mainly an Iranian news agency and an Arabic newspaper published in London. This allows it to avoid breaking censorship laws. Yet, at first, it was difficult to believe the details provided by Israel. They went way beyond the details provided by any of the foreign agencies. The Israeli report was so detailed—including maps of the assassination site near Damascus while other sources couldn't even decide if the event took place in Lebanon or Syria—that it left no room for doubt who was behind the event. Moreover, when foreign sources couldn't even name the role of the Iranian general, Israel was describing his actions in exceptional detail. They described a highly disciplined, non-corrupt general, member of the elite "Kuds Force" ("Holy Force"), who was highly successful in the civil reconstruction of South Lebanon, an area which had been practically destroyed in the Israeli attack of 2006. Before that, he had served in Afghanistan and Iraq. As commander of the Iranian Committee for the Reconstruction of Lebanon, he ran a yearly budget of $200 million, which was used for reconstruction of homes and civil and military infrastructures. In that function, he moved in Lebanon and Syria using a pseudonym "Hussam Hush Nevis" (Roman spelling may vary); at the moment of his assassination, he was in Syria to study reconstruction plans for the northern city of Aleppo. His pseudonym was introduced by the USA in its list of sanctioned Iranians, a testimony of his importance and effectiveness (also of his successful pseudonym, his real name was clean). Israeli articles mentioned the number of the reconstructed houses and went just short of providing the addresses.
In his reaction, Sheikh Nassrallah used a Biblical principle, which appears several times in the Pentateuch+. "And those who remain shall listen and fear, and they shall no longer continue to commit any such evil thing among you. You shall not have pity: life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot." Israel hit a reconstruction engineer; Nasrallah threatened the Lights of Rabin Power Station. The Israel that prides itself in its Biblical origin may soon taste a punishment of Biblical dimensions.
