Israel Is Preparing for the Next Lebanon War

(Ha'aretz) Gili Cohen - Six years after the outbreak of the Second Lebanon War, the IDF is preparing for another Lebanon war, Brig.-Gen. Hertzi Halevy of the IDF Northern Command said Thursday. "The IDF is preparing seriously and professionally for another Lebanon war. The response will need to be sharper, harder, and in some ways very violent." Hizbullah has the capability to launch a large quantity of rockets in a short period of time, and this could cause significant damage on the Home Front. "The next war will be different, and therefore we should stop it as quickly as possible, in order to make things easier for the home front. This means carrying out a very strong attack against Lebanon, and the damage will be enormous," says a senior officer in the Northern Command.
