IDF chief threatens Lebanon with war

IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot warned Israel’s northern neighbor that the IDF would be forced to take action against Lebanon, if Iran would entrench itself militarily, along-side its proxy Hezbollah. Lieutenant General Eisenkot, who is due to end his term as the IDF’s Chief of Staff next Tuesday, insinuated during an interview with Israel’s State Radio that the IDF has been engaged in covert operations in Lebanon. Eisenkot revealed that while Israel did not attack terror elements in Lebanon overtly, it was forced to act in a very large number of covert and clandestine dimensions. The outgoing top Israeli officer refrained, however, from elaborating on the matter.
