JERUSALEM (Worthy News)-- Last November, a senior IDF officer warned of the implications of a Third Lebanon War. His name is Yair Golan, and he was at the time ending his stint as GOC Northern Command and transferring to Tel Aviv to serve as deputy chief of staff, Ynet reported.
Everything was laid out in his warning – hundreds of rockets every day, severe damage to infrastructure, loss of civilian life, and, if anyone was in any doubt, the closure of Israel's airports. especially Ben-Gurion Airport.
Not hundreds of rockets a day, he said in a final conversation with military correspondents, but 1,500 missiles a day. He added that the state of protection in Israel has deteriorated, and one out of every four citizens is unprotected.
And if this was not worrying enough, anyone who thinks the Iron Dome will be our savior is wrong. There will not be enough Iron Dome batteries, said the departing general, to stop these barrages, and the batteries that there are will be placed close to strategic facilities - air bases, for example. "The citizens of Israel," he concluded, must therefore "be prepared to face the challenge." --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4643803,00.html" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
