’Israel’: Killing Nasrallah Would Be Decisive Victory in Next Lebanon War
The Zionist entity's goal in its next war in the north will be to "reach a decisive victory" including the killing of Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, according to a senior "Israel" military official.
"If we manage to kill Nasrallah in the next war, I would see that as reaching a decisive victory," Major General Yaakov Barak told reporters when asked what "decisive victory" meant.
The remarks echoed similar comments from the Zionist military's chief spokesperson in November, who claimed that the "Israeli" army is conducting psychological and media warfare against Hezbollah.
In this respect, "Israel's" military establishment sees the Gaza front as the one more likely to erupt in the near future, but its preparations, procurement and equipment upgrades are geared toward Lebanon and possibly Syria.
And since any future war is expected to be very different from previous ones, especially for the Zionist front, "Israeli" ground forces are likely to be sent into the battlefield more quickly, widely and deeply than before, according to Barak.
Combat may be different from that during the July 2006 war in light of the changes on the northern occupied front over the past 11 and a half years.
Meanwhile, "Israel" foresees a threat underground as well, assuming Hezbollah has tunnels in Lebanon not necessarily to infiltrate the occupied territories but to store weapons and shelter fighters.
Another problem is that this time fighting in the north could mean on the Syrian border as well. A front could also open up in Gaza in the south.
