Hizbullah’s Grandiose Plan to Invade Israel in the Post-Tunnel Era – Avi Issacharoff (Times of Israel)
In his latest speech, Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah again boasted that his group can easily penetrate into Israeli territory from Lebanon, even though his cross-border tunnel network may have been destroyed.
In the absence of the tunnels, Hizbullah will likely seek to get thousands of fighters into Israel at once through several points on the border while bombarding the border region, hoping to reach an Israeli border community or army post.
Hizbullah’s attack plan will likely include drones to carry out “kamikaze” bombings of Israeli targets.
But Hizbullah’s highly ambitious war plan is exceptionally risky. Trying to send thousands of its best warriors across the border might present an excellent opportunity for the IDF to eliminate Hizbullah’s elite fighting force in a matter of hours.
