The Israeli newspaper “Israel Hayom” reported, on Friday morning, that the northern Israeli front in front of Hezbollah is getting closer and closer to an explosion or escalation, and that this escalation could happen at any moment, and the war between the two sides could extend for several days.
The newspaper quoted a prominent officer in the Northern Command of the Israeli army, that his country’s army must constantly prepare for the possibility of a war with the Lebanese Hezbollah, in particular, or an explosion on the northern Israeli border, in general, against the background of Israel ending a dramatic year on those borders, according to the newspaper saying.
The newspaper indicated that Hezbollah will continue its attempts that it carried out during the past year, in response to the killing of one of its members in an Israeli attack that took place near Damascus International Airport, where it was quoted by the officer that the Lebanese party has not forgotten that incident, and will try again to escalate in front of the Israeli army.
The senior Israeli officer pointed out that Hezbollah tried to carry out an infiltration operation on Mount Hermon last September, but the Israeli army did not want, at that time, to escalate, preferring that the time was not right to respond to Hezbollah, and that it sent a sharp message to the party.
The Lebanese that he will not hesitate to respond, once again.
