The Lebanese military expert and strategist retired Brigadier General Amin Hoteit said Tuesday that a joint Israeli-American military force has been formed on the sidelines of the NATO Navy forces meeting.
A Zionist navy piece was attached to these forces without the so-called 'Israel' being a member of NATO," Hotiet told Al-Manar website.
"This new attached force has tested today the rocket systems (Tomahawk and cruise missiles, as well as interceptors platform for missiles)," he added.
As for the regional and international messages behind firing the rockets, Hoteit believed that the operation holds a certain message to the military force that it is mobilized for a serious and imminent war.
"There is also a message to the U.S. Congress that the forces are ready and wait for the war approval."
"Another message to Syria and its allies in the framework of intimidation and psychological warfare to say that the war is coming, the threat is serious and that there is no retreat from aggression," he added.
In the final evaluation, the Lebanese expert said the rockets will not change the landscape and the balance of power, but if the United States wants to attack, it must prepare with its agents in the region for an open war.
