Will Israel wage a war against Hezbollah before its elections in 2016? | Al Akhbar English

The senior Israeli minister told the Israeli newspaper Maariv that the next war with Hezbollah, expected to erupt before the Israeli general elections, may drag both Syria and Iran into the conflict. Citing prevailing views in Tel Aviv, the Israeli newspaper noted, “Hezbollah’s growing audacity on the northern front confirms the end of the deterrence created in the aftermath of the Second Lebanon War in 2006, as Hezbollah has publicly changed its policies, and now takes responsibility for the operations it carries out on the border, and is seeking to develop friction with the Israeli military through operations in the Golan as well.”Moreover, Maariv attributed what it called bold reasons presented by the party and its secretary-general, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah in facing Israel, to the reality of the operational experience amassed by Hezbollah operatives during their fight in Syria, in which the party is fighting as an organized army, has developed a sophisticated and modern intelligence gathering system, is utilizing unmanned drones, among other developments “which has led to the enhancement of Hezbollah’s self-confidence and abilities.”
