Israel to launch war games simulating ‘next confrontation with Hezbollah’

Hezbollah

Israel has announced that it will launch large scale military exercises aimed at simulating “the next confrontation with Hezbollah.”

According to the Israeli war ministry, the 10-day drills, the largest the Tel Aviv regime has held in almost 20 years, are scheduled to kick off on Tuesday.

Tens of thousands of troops are set to take part in the war games, which will also include aircraft, boats, and submarines.

Preparations for the exercise have been in place for over a year.

Last month, the secretary general of the Lebanese Hezbollah movement said Israel is not able to launch a new war on Lebanon, because it knows that Hezbollah is much more powerful than 2006 and any such war would cost Tel Aviv dearly.
