Israeli forces have just ended a full-scale combat drill mobilizing troops to an area in the Northern Occupied Palestinian territories.
The drills included tanks, artillery units as well as Sky Rider Units made up of Artillery Corps soldiers who operate drones to back up ground offensives.
This drill comes as Israeli officials are watching with grave concern the improvement of Hezbollah’s military proficiency which was demonstrated in the resistance group’s battle against foreign-backed Takfiri militants in Syria.
According to Israeli officials the Lebanese Resistance Movement has learned to operate on large ground frameworks, and its fighters have become dexterous in the use of advanced weapons. The movement has also proved that it is capable of carrying out a systematic ground campaign displaying a military-like approach.
All this has led the chief of the Israeli regime’s artillery force to admit that “Hezbollah’s involvement in the war on Syria has not disrupted its preparedness for a war with Israel but has rather bolstered its defense capabilities.”
According to some recent Israeli reports, any future attack on Lebanon will see Hezbollah inflicting large-scale devastation on the Israeli regime and its infrastructure.
Israelis believe that Hezbollah is capable of firing 1200 rockets of different models on Occupied Palestinian territories every day if violence erupts. It’s also said that the resistance movement has the ability to target Israeli oil and gas facilities in case of a war.
Hezbollah Secretary General – Sayyed Hassan Nasr-Allah – had repeatedly said that the resistanec group is capable of going beyond enemy lines and seizing strategic areas within the Occupied Palestinian territories.
Though tensions seem to be simmering on both sides of the blue line, observers argue that the Israeli regime’s belief in a blitz that will render it victorious is out of the question at the moment. The Israeli regime sees Hezbollah’s might as a deterrent force holding it back.
