Following the inevitable collapse of Syria, Israel will invade Lebanon and “the damage will be enormous,” a senior officer told Haaretz on Thursday.
During 2006 invasion, Israel targeted Lebanese civilians.
“The destruction will be greater in Lebanon than in Israel and the amount of explosives which will fall there will be far more than what will fall here,” said an IDF officer. “We will need to be strong and aggressive.”
IDF Brig.-Gen. Herzi Halevy said blame for the coming Israeli invasion will be attributed to Hezbollah due to the Shi’ite paramilitary organization’s establishment of bases in villages and towns located in southern Lebanon.
Hezbollah was organized in response to 18 years of Israeli military occupation of southern Lebanon. It has since established itself as a major political broker with veto power in Lebanon’s parliament and control of eleven of thirty seats in the cabinet.
Israel claims Syria is transferring missiles and chemicals weapons to Hezbollah. Israel has indicated it is prepared to use military force to prevent Hezbollah from obtaining Syria’s weaponry, Maj. Gen. Yair Golan, head of the Israel’s Northern Command that borders Lebanon and Syria, told the UPI on May 31.
Halevy said Israel blames Syria for “terrorist activities” on its northern border “and is preparing accordingly,” according to Jonatan Urich of the IDF.
