Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah will be a target in the next war between Lebanon and Israel, an Israeli army spokesperson said in a report published Tuesday.
“There won’t be a clear victory picture in the [next] war, but it’s clear that Nasrallah is a target,” Israeli left-leaning daily Haaretz quoted Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis as saying at a press conference.
Manelis also reportedly said that the Israeli army was engaging in psychological warfare against Hezbollah via social media campaigns.
“Just in the past few weeks, we’ve taken a great many actions that caused consternation on the other side,” he said.
While both Hezbollah and Israel have indicated that the chances of a war breaking out in the immediate future are low, it is commonly thought that another war, at some point, is inevitable.
