Israel Will Stop Hizbullah Rocket Attack "with Great Force"

(Jerusalem Post) Herb Keinon - Former Mossad head Danny Yatom warned Monday against presenting an apocalyptic picture of how Iran would respond if Israel took military action against its nuclear program. While acknowledging that Iran had a few hundred missiles that could reach Israel, Yatom said the central concern was the tens of thousands of rockets in Hizbullah and Hamas storehouses in Lebanon and Gaza. Yatom said that the lesson Israel learned from the 2006 Second Lebanon War was that "we will have to stop the firing of missiles, both from the north and the south, as quickly as possible." To do this, Israel would have to "act with great force against infrastructure in Lebanon and Gaza, and it is possible that the price that Lebanon and Gaza will pay will be horrible. We are liable to destroy, or likely to destroy, parts of Lebanon and parts of Gaza, so that our citizens will not suffer and be killed."
