IDF Preparing for Ground Offensive to Defeat Hezbollah in Lebanon


hezbollahIn the event of another war, only a full-scale ground offensive will achieve a convincing defeat of Hezbollah in Lebanon, a high-ranking IDF source said on Tuesday. “It’s clear to the general staff that a ground maneuver is what’s needed” to extinguish the threat of mass rocket attacks, the source said.

Ground Forces planners are aiming to inject units deep into Hizbullah’s territory. “It’s clear to us that we have to shorten a conflict. A ground maneuver will accomplish that,” the source said. “We have to get to the enemy and strike its ability to fire on us.”
