What the Third Lebanon War Will Look Like

(Ynet News) Ron Ben-Yishai - While Hizbullah is deeply submerged in the Syrian quagmire, over the past year its leadership has been preparing for the Third Lebanon War. The next war will begin with Hizbullah firing around 1,200 more accurate rockets a day, which will target civilians, military facilities, and essential services throughout Israel. Damage will be much smaller if the David's Sling missile defense system, designed to intercept missiles with a longer range than Iron Dome, is operative by then. Hizbullah special forces are also expected to cross into Israeli territory to conquer towns, kidnap hostages, and block major transportation arteries in the north. Hizbullah will also launch intensive barrages of mortal shells and short-range rockets to unleash mass death and destruction in Israeli border communities. Israel's response will be aimed at stopping Hizbullah's rocket fire and preventing infiltration into Israeli territory. There will be significant and speedy maneuvering of large IDF forces into Lebanese territory and thousands of targets will be hit throughout Lebanon for many days. The IDF is adding a defensive element through what is known as "the obstacle." This is an artificial cliff being dug in the mountain slopes next to border communities.
