(Worthy News)-- In the event of a new conflict with Hezbollah, the IDF would seek to evacuate more than a million civilians in south Lebanon within 24 hours before proceeding to strike thousands of Hezbollah targets in some 240 villages and built-up regions, a senior military source said on Wednesday, the Jerusalem Post reported.
Large-scale Hezbollah rocket and missile fire would be met with civilian evacuations, massive Israeli aerial strikes, followed by a ground offensive, he said.
Discussing a new strategy for dealing with Hezbollah's battle doctrine of using civilian built-up areas as military bases to rain death and destruction upon Israel, the source spoke as the IDF approached the conclusion of a weeklong drill simulating conflict on multiple fronts, including the Israel Air Force practicing striking of large numbers of targets and simulating conflict in northern combat arenas. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Conflict/IDF-source-Wed-evacuate-a-million-Lebanese-if-war-breaks-out-with-Hezbollah-404999" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
