Israel preparing for war with Hezbollah?

PanARMENIAN.Net - Israel is elevating its state of readiness on its northern front in light of reports that events in Syria will have major repercussions on the Jewish State, Daily Star reported citing a publication in Al-Hayat.

“The inactivity of Hezbollah does not mean the situation will remain like this. From our side, we will always be at the utmost state of readiness as if war might break out next week,” Israel’s Home Front Defense Minister Matan Vilnai was quoted as saying while inspecting the northern Israeli district of Kiryat Shmona for its level of preparedness.

“Hezbollah realized that Israel is able to confront it in a strong way which makes [the party] cautious against any move toward Israel,” Vilnai also said.

Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah, in recent televised speech, warned that any attack against allies Syria or Iran would engulf the entire region, hinting at the possibility of opening Lebanon’s southern front against the Jewish state.

Nasrallah has repeatedly stated it is well equipped and ready for any possible future war with Israel.

Syria has been under international and Arab pressure to implement reforms and halt its violent crackdown against anti-government protesters. The UN has estimated that around 3,500 people have died as a result of the crackdown.
