Israeli expert: Hezbollah soldiers more experienced than Israelis
An Israeli expert on military strategy and intelligence says Hezbollah is a highly organized army and "Israel" cannot afford a war against it.
Eyal Pinko, a professor at Bar-Ilan University’s Political Studies Department and an expert on military strategy and intelligence, pointed out that "the average Hezbollah soldier is much more experienced and trained than the average Israeli soldier."
In an interview for the Jerusalem Post, Pinko considered that "Hezbollah is a highly organized army. Israel cannot afford a war with Hezbollah, the losses will be immense."
The professor indicated that "Hezbollah’s firepower is highly significant; it is not clear at all that Israel will be able to handle it."
The Jerusalem Post explained that "militarily, Hezbollah has only grown in strength since 2006. In addition to the arsenal of rockets and missiles, the organization is believed to have over 100 drones."
The newspaper website pointed out that "the multilayered Israeli air defense systems, considered to be highly sophisticated, will likely have difficulty fending off barrages of thousands of rockets every day in the event of a war with Hezbollah."
It is noteworthy that during his speech on Wednesday, the Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, underlined that one of the Resistance's many achievements in the July war is foiling the US plan for a "new Middle East."
"Another one of the July War's many achievements is creating an equation of deterrence between Lebanon and the Israeli enemy," Sayyed Nasrallah said. "All the Israelis realize that Benny Gantz's words about entering Lebanon are null and void."
"There was a US project to take control of the region through direct military intervention, but the resistance and Lebanon's resilience and the objectives of the July War dealt a heavy blow to the new Middle East project," the Resistance leader explained.
In regard to the Karish platform and the oil and gas extraction file, Sayyed Nasrallah noted that the Israeli occupation has a weak point: "its need for gas and oil in contrast with Lebanon's strong point, which is its ability to sabotage [the occupation's plans]. The resistance is the only strong point that you (the Lebanese officials) have in the demarcation negotiations. Use it."
