It’s official: Hezbollah is training to attack Israel should Israel launch a military strike against Iran.
Hezbollah held a military drill in Southern Lebanon last week as part of an “Iranian-orchestrated preparation for a confrontation with Israel.” Upwards of 10,000 members of Hezbollah participated in the drill.
According to counter terrorism expert Dr. Ely Karmon, “This is happening in full coordination with Iran,” and the targets Hezbollah could strike not only include those deep within in the Jewish state, but even those around the Galilee. In fact, Karmon believes that if the Hezbollah forces can “penetrate the Galilee” and “hold a small village for 24 hours,” they will succeed in scoring points against the IDF.
IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz said that any group or country that attempts to attack Israel on any scale “will discover the deadly force of the IDF.”
Even now, approximately 2,000 elite Hezbollah fighters continue training in Iran.
