Today, IDF's "cute deceptive maneuver" failed. It could have led to escalation and war against Hezbollah, Iran's proxy in Lebanon, dragging the US into war as well...

Fake medical evacuation of fake wounded soldiers, following fake news of Hezbollah attack on a fake medical vehicle, as recorded by Hezbollah. The false propaganda maneuver failed within 1-2 hours. [v]

____

Tel-Aviv, Sept 01 an unusual incident took place along the Israeli-Lebanese border today.

Israeli English-language media appeared vague on the nature of the event. For example, Haaretz English edition title is misleading: [i]

Hezbollah Missiles Hit Israeli Base, Military Vehicle on Lebanese Border; No Casualties

Reading down towards the end of the report, one gets to a section, which reads:

Later on Sunday, it was revealed that the IDF conducted a diversionary maneuver that included evacuating bandaged soldiers to a hospital.

After the missile hit the armored vehicle, which was being used as an ambulance, the IDF called in a helicopter to the scene, and two soldiers were filmed being carried out on a stretcher.

Rambam Medical Center in Haifa had announced the arrival of the two soldiers, and about an hour later, IDF Spokesperson Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis announced that there were no Israeli military casualties. Manelis refused to comment on visuals showing the helicopter evacuating the soldiers to the hospital...

Times of Israel also provides a simplistic title "...none hurt", and gets into this difficult to explain subject way down its report as well: [ii]

Military sources said that the vehicle was empty when it was struck, but that soldiers had been inside half an hour earlier. IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus initially said that the armored jeep had been painted with a red Jewish star, identifying it as an ambulance, but later retracted the claim and clarified that the vehicle had been used as an ambulance but was not marked as such.

In contrast, Haaretz Hebrew edition title is explicit: [iii]

Following anti-tank fire, IDF engaged in a deception maneuver, evacuated soldiers by copters...

Within a couple of hours IDF published a retraction, linked to an unusual announcement by Rambam hospital doctors that there were no wounded IDF soldiers...

Shimrit Meir, an analyst/unofficial horn dismissed the entire incident as "a cute deception maneuver": [iv]

It's not that we are the first army in the world to conduct a cute deception maneuver. Yes.

However, the nature of the "cute maneuver" and the targets of the "cute maneuver" remained unclear... Basically, IDF spokesman today issued a false presser to the Israeli public, informing Israelis of wounded soldiers in a Hezbollah attack on a "medical vehicle", and it is likely that the "cute deception maneuver" failed because Rambam hospital doctors refused to collude.

It should also be noted that during the "cute deception maneuver" IDF deliberately exposed medical evacuation personnel to Hezbollah fire, but the bait failed, Hezbollah didn't bite. [v]

2019-09-02 UPDATE: This morning, in an awkward attempt to explain yesterday's "cute deception", Netanyahu's cabinet minister, IDF general (ret) himself, Yoav Gallant explains: "Consciousness is under the authority of the Chief of Staff". [1] One should recall that "consciousness control" or "consciousness change" is the current Israeli gov's term for "Hasbara", or propaganda. Gallant's statement appears as an attempt to absolve Defense Minister (and PM) Netanyahu from any responsibility for yesterday's hoax. However, the notion, obviously not foreign to the Israeli gov, that IDF Chief is permitted to perpetrate propaganda hoaxes on the public is incredible.

I don't see why the author thinks that Israel has to deceive the U.S. government into going to war with Iran. The U.S. already wants and has plans to do this. To me there is no way for Israel to deceive or fool all of the U.S. intelligence and military services that are monitoring Iran's and Russia's and Syria's and Hezbollah's and the Palestinian's every move. If the U.S. goes to war with Iran it will be because it is their policy and decision, not because they were deceived by some Israeli false flag event. Though, Israel may try this. The U.S. will know that it is a false flag, and go to war anyway, to appease the western oligarchs and banks and corporations that run the U.S. government. So to me, the author should not give the U.S. government the opportunity to sherk its' responsibilty for waging war on Iran, by the U.S. government stating that it was deceived, by Israel, into going to war with Iran./p>

Granted that the US regime is not necessarily coherent and consistent with itself; the notion of deceiving the US into war in this context means, for example, creating a provocation, or a trigger event, that would ignite such war, at a time that at least the US president appears to prefer not to go to war in the ME, for his own reasons (e,g. election 2020). US intelligence may know the details of such provocation or trigger event. Regardless, once the region is on fire, such knowledge wouldn't make any difference.

Obviously there is no denying that the entire situation, e.g., the occupation, abuse and oppression in Palestine would have ended decades ago, absent US patronage. Current US Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, is an extreme example.

"To me there is no way for Israel to deceive or fool all of the U.S. intelligence and military services"

If you believe our government, Osama Bin Laden did it while living in caves.

2019-09-03 UPDATE: This morning Haaertz daily provides the latest version (Ver 3) of events, as reported newly by military spox. Now it was a narrowly averted heavy loss. Vers 3 contradicts the earlier Ver 2 in material details. Now, IDF is back to the hoax that Hezbollah shot an anti-tank missile at a military ambulance. That was the initial, Ver 1, later retracted in Ver 2. And now, in Ver 3, there were two (2) soldiers inside the vehicle at the time it was hit. That again, was the original Ver 1, but it was later retracted in Ver 2. What remains unclear in Ver 3, is how two soldiers inside a vehicle got hit by an anti-tank missile, and escaped unscratched... The hoax is so crude, but Israeli media seem not to raise any questions regarding the fundamental issue: The government has announced that IDF Chief of Staff is permitted to conduct "consciousness change" (Hasbara/propaganda) operations on the Israeli public... Such lack of protest reflects a society with no constitution and vaguely defined civil rights... moreover, lack of public comprehension of the fundamentals of civil rights and civil society...

Amos Harel: Israel is gloating, but it was almost dragged into a war through a serious operational failure.

Two of the anti-tank missiles, which were filed from Lebanon, aimed at an ambulance, which was travelling on a road within range, in disregard of instructions to use only further roads. The soldiers, who were in the ambulance, escaped the missile hits. IDF admits "it was mere luck".
