On Tuesday, Maj. Gen. Yitzhak Gershon, former Israel Occupation Force (IOF) Home Front Commander during the Summer 2006 attack on Lebanon, in an interview with Army Radio warned the new Israeli defense minister and head of extremist Russian Jewish settlers’ Yisrael Beiteinu party, Avigdor Lieberman, that Israeli Jews must be mentally prepared for being hit by 1,200 Hizbullah rockets per day during next war with Hizbullah.
“In 2006 war Hizbullah fired 160 rockets per day at the northern region, we expect to receive 1,200 rockets per day in a new war with Hizbullah – it will be a completely different scenario from anything we have known,” he said.
“We will need mental fortitude more than physical protection,” added Gershon who now commands the IOF’s reservist northern region emergency division.
Gershon’s warning came as the Zionist regime is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its invasion of Lebanon on July 12, 2006.
Alastair Crooke and Park Perry in a 3-part article, entitled, How Hizbullah Defeated Israel, at Asia Times in 2006 documented the moral and fighting superiority of Hizbullah fighters over the Jewish army.
During the 2006 war, the Zionist entity suffered the greatest military loses at the hands of an Arab army or militia in its history. It lost 147 IOF soldiers as compared to 47 Hizbullah fighters. Though Jewish army was able to kill over 1,200 Lebanese civilians, it lost only seven civilians – two of the Jews died of heart attack. IOF lost 23 tanks; Israeli airforce lost two fighter jets and two Naval vessels were damaged. Lebanon lost over $2 billion worth infrastructure as result of Israeli carpet bombing.
An independent Israeli source in 2007, though reported that Israel lost 2,100 soldiers (Mondoweiss, September 12, 2009).
Hizbullah fighters’ courage, Islamic pride and artifacts of Israeli defeat are preserved inside Lebanon War Museum in Mleeta, Lebanon, which attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists each year from not only Lebanon but around the world. Watch a tour view below.
