In a recent address to his troops in the Gaza Strip, Israeli Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi emphasized their readiness to engage in combat in Lebanon if necessary. The stern message came after the Israeli military's operations in Gaza.
Halevi's statement was conveyed during his visit to Gaza and was released in an official army statement.
He declared, "After fighting in Gaza, we will know how to do it in Lebanon if required." He further added, "After what you have accomplished, there won't be a village in Lebanon that you won't be able to enter and that you won't be able to destroy. We will position you in the right places, and you will do what is necessary. It will be a prolonged battle on the other side, and we will emerge with positive outcomes."
The remarks made by Lieutenant General Halevi underscore the Israeli military's commitment to ensuring its preparedness for any potential conflict in the region, signaling a resolve to address security concerns on multiple fronts.
