Half of Israel May Come Under Hezbollah Fire, Former Israeli Security Chief Warns

Israel’s security establishment is continuing to monitor the developments in the North closely. Meanwhile, in the coalition, threats against Hezbollah are becoming more frequent. After Defense Minister Yoav Gallant warned that “the hourglass is about to reverse course,” ex-MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud) said in a conversation with Gadi Ness on a radio show that “Lebanon may be destroyed in the next war.”

In the midst of this, former National Security Council (NSC) chief Uzi Dayan warned in an interview with Ness that “we need to be prepared for a rocket attack from Hezbollah that will hit half of the State of Israel.”

He explained, “In the North, our sovereignty is being violated on a daily basis. Residents are not returning to their communities. What needed to be done a month ago was an operation on both fronts, in the North and in the South. But now, Gaza takes precedence. Beirut will have to come after Gaza. We cannot just sit and get attacked and do nothing in response.”

“We need to attack Lebanon in general and Hezbollah specifically more harshly, and this should come in addition to having the army form a barrier, a death trap, along the settlements up North,” he stressed.

Meanwhile, a new survey conducted by the Jewish People’s Policy Institute revealed that 63% of Israelis also think that the IDF should attack Hezbollah with full force at the first available opportunity or after the war.

Of those surveyed, 79% of the Israeli public believes there is no chance for peace with the Palestinians, and 44% think that the government, the IDF, and the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) have equal and shared responsibility for the October 7 failure. (JPost / VFI News)
