srael will launch a brutal war against Lebanon if provoked by Hezbollah, senior Israel Defense Forces officers warned Thursday.
Though the northern border has remained mostly quiet since the end of the Second Lebanon War six years ago, Northern Command officers remain leery of hostilities breaking out again, especially as tensions with Iran remain high and Syria continues to spiral out of control.
“We will fight in a very aggressive way,” said Brig. Gen. Herzi Halevi, the commander of the IDF’s Galilee Division, charged with defending Israel’s border with Lebanon. “Any village from which rockets are fired – will be destroyed.”
