Israeli army chief: A new war would be 7 times harder for Lebanon


Israeli army chief Herzi Halevi on Tuesday announced that Hezbollah is “very deterred from an all-out war against Israel.”

“It thinks it understands how we think. This thought brings it to dare and challenge us where it is sure it will not lead to war. I see this as a good way to create surprises if necessary,” Halevi said.

“We have good preparedness in the northern arena. A campaign in the northern arena will be difficult on the home front. We will know how to deal with it, but it will be difficult. It will be seven times harder for Lebanon, and even more so for Hezbollah,” Halevi added.

100%. Hezbollah weapons are not against Israel. Israel is the excuse. Bleeding the lebanese to feed their shia is their real reason for these weapons

The murderous hezb is the biggest joke. They’re too busy dealing drugs to have time to fight Israel. Unless their masters in Tehran tell them to do it.
