Keep the eyes on the ball !
Three missiles hit a transmission station at Fatqa in the Keserwan mountains.Another airstrike crippled a transmission tower at Terbol in northern Lebanon,where relay stations for the Lebanese Broadcasting Corp (LBC), Future TV and Hezbollah's al-Manar are located.
Nasrala is a polititian. Like any politian he wants to have more control , more power. Unlike other polititians he holds a private army and a private TV station.
the only thing that I know of that can stop a polititian is his political oponents. Israel needs to keep the eye on the ball - weakening Nasrala - without weakening his political oponents. Israeli channel 1 news hinted yesturday that the attack on LBC television tower was a mistake. They added that LBC is known as political rivals of the Hezbollah.
Arab sources claim that the Israeli strike was meant to stop the broadcasting of horible images to the arab world. If this is realy the cause, then Israel failed since the LBC relay tower is used by Lebanonees only. The rest of the arab world receive the video via satelite communication (which was not harmed).
My guess is that the LBC tower was most likely hit because it was too close to Nasrala's TV tower (al-Manar):
