One of Israel’s top military commanders has said that they expect Israel to come under fire from 2,000 rockets and missiles every day during a future war with Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Speaking on Monday, Major General Uri Gordin said the attacks will challenge Israel’s military and civil defense capabilities, but that Israel had proven itself capable of handling such threats in the past.
“Our enemies on the different fronts need to know that if needed, we will activate a powerful military that has never been seen before,” Gordin said.
“They know they cannot defeat us on the battlefield, so they try to move the war to a second front and that is our homes and in our cities,” the IDF general said.
Israel believes that Hezbollah has an arsenal of approximately 150,000 rockets and missiles, some of which have the ability to strike anywhere inside the country. This is in addition to the rockets stored by Hamas in the Gaza Strip, who will no doubt also seek to strike Israel during a future war with Hezbollah.
We must continue to pray for Israel and be watchmen on the walls for Jerusalem.
