IDF: In Next War, Hizbullah Will Try to Grab Territory Inside Israel

(Israel Hayom) Yoav Limor - "I believe that next time we will see Hizbullah forces on Israeli soil," Brig. Gen. Itai Brun, the outgoing director of the IDF Military Intelligence research division, warned in an interview this week. "They will come in two forms: One will be terror attacks - pinpoint strikes in Nahariya or Shlomi or Maalot - and the other will be more substantial operations to grab territory inside Israel," meaning that a Hizbullah unit would take over an entire community. Hizbullah plans to fire more than 1,000 rockets every day in an effort to damage strategic facilities in Israel. Brun added that the Syrian government is still using chemical weapons. "Bashar [Assad] has in fact been using chemical weapons on his people throughout all of last year. It's not sarin or VX, but other agents." These chemical agents "neutralize in low doses and kill in high doses. [Assad] used chlorine gas, for example."
