After the Secretary General of Hizbullah His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah vowed that the Lebanese resistance is to turn the "Israelis" lives in any next aggression to hell, "Israeli" media is occupied with Hizbullah's nightmare.
Quoting a recent report on an alleged Hizbullah drill, both "Ynet" and "Jerusalem Post" "Israeli" dailies shed light on the reported information.
"Ynet" feared that Hizbullah "held an unprecedentedly large military-style exercise this week, which included over 10,000 of its operatives."
For its part, "JP" quoted a senior "Israeli" security analyst as saying: "A reportedly large Hizbullah military drill held in southern Lebanon is part of an Iranian-orchestrated preparation for a confrontation with "Israel"."
Under the title, "Hizbullah drill prepares to 'occupy the Galilee", the daily reflected the "Israeli" military fear of the next confrontation with Hizbullah.
"This is happening in full coordination with Iran," said Dr. Ely Karmon, a senior research school at the so-called "Israeli" Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya's Institute for "Counter-Terrorism".
Karmon cautioned that "it wouldn't belittle the claim that they will try and penetrate the Galilee. Even if they hold a small village for 24 hours, it would allow them to score points against the "IDF"," the analyst added.
"Hizbullah was free to operate in the area of the Litani River in Lebanon. It had secret bases further south, nearer to the border with "Israel"," he added
"I assume the drill was held in the Litani area, where Hizbullah stationed new outposts. It bought land in the area from Sunnis and Christians to control the territory," Karmon claimed. The military researcher further warned that "Iran's interest is Hizbullah's interest. If Iran goes nuclear, Hizbullah can remain as a significant force."
Yoram Schweitzer, a researcher at the so-called "Israeli" Institute for National Security Studies, echoed Karmon's caution against dismissing Hizbullah's threat of seizing sections of the Galilee.
"They can send small assault teams into the Galilee... while everyone is busy with attacks in Lebanon," Schweitzer said. "They can try to plant their flag [in "Israeli" soil], as part of psychological warfare. I would suggest that the threat not be dismissed," said Schweitzer, a former member of the intelligence community.
