Israel Cannot Allow a Hizbullah Presence in the Golan

(Israel Hayom) Yaakov Amidror - The strike on high-ranking Iranian and Hizbullah officials in the Golan Heights last week was a direct hit to the other side's capabilities (a hit that will result in the postponement, if not the cancellation, of the action they were planning). This can be seen as a signal to the Iranians and to Hizbullah that there are red lines, and that the response will be severe if they dare cross them. Israel must show, not by talk but by action, what its limits are. The growing presence of Hizbullah in the Golan could present Israel with a dual front in every future war against it in the north. We cannot allow a Hizbullah presence there. Maj.-Gen. (ret.) Yaakov Amidror is a former Israeli National Security Advisor.
