I recently visited the Lebanese-Israeli border. We were accompanied by retired colonel of the Israel Defense Forces with a background in military intelligence Miri Eisin. It was a great opportunity to better understand the history of conflict and the current challenges Israel has to face.                   

During our security tour, we discussed several issues regarding the Middle East region. We started from the history of the Israel-Lebanon border and how Britain and France had an impact on it. Later, we visited and explored the Gajar district which is located in the Golan Heights.

There is no doubt that we saw the role of Hezbollah terrorist organization and its influence on Lebanon almost in each sphere. During the speech of Miri Eisin, a few meters away from the border (on the Lebanese side), two guys approached the border fence and started looking at us using binoculars. They were the members of Hezbollah terrorist organization. 

We were shocked and simultaneously concerned how big an impact Hezbollah has on Lebanon. A little bit far from the border we observed the Dome. Miri Eisin explained to us that this Dome is called “Al-Aqsa II” in Lebanon and it was constructed in honor of the former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s visit in 2010. Interestingly, an Iranian flag was on the top of it.

Hezbollah is a recognized terrorist organization backed by Iranian mullah regime. Iranian money is spent on building bunkers and military storerooms for Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Moving on, we had a view on Shebaa Farms.

We paid respect to the monument of fallen Israeli soldiers. The Second Lebanon War started in 2006 by the abduction of IDF soldiers in a cross-border raid. 

During the Second Lebanon War, Hezbollah continuously targeted Israel’s northern population centers – Carmiel, Nahariya and even Haifa. They purposefully fired on densely populated areas in order to kill and wound as many Israeli civilians as possible. This kind of actions again proves that Iran is a state which funds terror.  

As a student coming from Azerbaijan this issue really touches me. Because Iran is an ally of Armenia, during the 2020 Karabakh war Russia supplied Armenia via Iran even though there was resistance from Southern Azerbaijanis. Now Iran supplies its ally with drones.

A few weeks ago Israel’s Minister of Defence visited Azerbaijan to discuss regional issues regarding security. In response, the Iranian Foreign Ministry decided to open a consulate in Qafan (Armenia) by saying Iran considers Armenia’s security its own security. 

When Armenia transformed mosques into pigsties, committed massacres, and destroyed the homes of Azerbaijanis in Karabakh throughout the years of occupation, Iran made no statements to protest against such kinds of atrocities.

Today, Iran accuses President Ilham Aliyev in bringing the Zionist regime into the Caucuses and periodically threatening my homeland with military drills on our border.

To conclude, the bilateral relations between Azerbaijan and Israel will be much stronger than today and the regime of Iranian mullahs is taking its last breath.
