Mughniyeh's Death Likely Prevented Future Attacks

[Ynet News] Roni Gal - Maj.-Gen. (ret.) Danny Rothschild, Chairman of the Council for Peace and Security, said: "This assassination likely prevented many future terror attacks, and 'quality' attacks at that." Rothschild believes that the Hizbullah commander will be replaced, "but no successor can function at his level of expertise. It will take them a long time to find someone who can plan and carry out 'quality' attacks of Mugniyah's caliber." He noted that "seeing as Hizbullah believes that Israel carried out this attack, it creates some sort of deterrence as far as we are concerned, and also with respect to Hamas. After all, if Israel can pull off an operation like that in Damascus, it can carry out these types of assassinations anywhere."
