(Worthy News) - “The Israel Defense Force will continue and intensify its covert and overt efforts to thwart Hezbollah’s desire to undermine Israel’s security,” GOC Northern Command Maj. Gen. Amir Baram said Tuesday.
Speaking at a ceremony marking the 13th anniversary of the 2006 Second Lebanon War, Baram noted that “the stable security reality that we have established in the sector in the 13 years since the war is proof of our deterrence. … If we are forced into war, we will exact a heavy price from Hezbollah and its patrons, wherever necessary.”
Still, he warned that “Hezbollah continues to grow stronger and establish its forces over the [Israel-Lebanon] border, but Operation Defensive Shield has dealt it a significant blow,” he said, referring to the IDF’s successful destruction of a grid of cross-border terror tunnels dug by the Shiite terrorist group.
