Israeli Army Chief Aviv Kochavi has warned that overwhelming force would be used in Lebanon in the next potential war with Hizbullah.
“The attack force will be unimaginable, like nothing you have witnessed before,” he said, advising local Lebanese residents to leave “from the beginning of tensions and before the first shot is fired.”
He added that Israel would target rocket launchers inside homes and buildings.
“The Army has pinpointed thousands of targets in Lebanon in the event of a war, including Hizbullah headquarters, as well as rocket-propelled grenades and rocket launchers,” Kochavi said.
Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah had threatened Thursday to strike a gas rig Israel is setting up in the Mediterranean Sea in a disputed maritime area.
