Maj. (res.) Tal Beeri says Tehran seeks to replicate its Hezbollah model in southern Lebanon to its next-door neighbor, explaining that even though it’s entrenching itself in Sunni areas, locals are not objecting to the Shi’ite axis “due to a meeting of interests.”
If the IDF continues to operate according to its old conventions while Hezbollah continues to adapt itself to new realities, it could find itself defeated. IDF commanders need new capabilities to safeguard and support the forces on the ground.
