The possibility of a war against Hezbollah this year is very high and that the liquidation of Hassan Nasrallah will be a key factor in resolving the battle, a senior IDF officer said Wednesday.
"The ground offensive in the next war will be strong, extensive, and swift, and if we can liquidate Nasrallah, the battle will be resolved," said Brigadier General Kobi Barak.
"The ground attack on Lebanon in the next war will be devastating," Brak said. "The ground attack will be supported by advanced means of warfare and technology, in order to protect the home front from Hezbollah attacks."
In an interview with the Israeli media, Major General Barak stressed that the Israeli army is required in the next war against Hezbollah to "engage directly with Hezbollah, occupy its territory and destroy its capabilities quickly and forcefully by relying on armor." Finished
