IDF Chief Gantz: Flames Creeping Up on Nasrallah

Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah.

JNS.org In Lebanon, the “flames have begun to lick [Hezbollah leader Hassan] Nasrallah’s robe,” IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz said Thursday at the Israel Air Force 166th cadets’ graduation ceremony at the Hazerim Airbase in southern Israel, according to Israel Hayom.

Gantz’s somewhat unusual, direct statement on Nasrallah was made following Israeli defense establishment assessments that strategically, Hezbollah is currently experiencing one of its lowest points in years, as the Shiite terror group is engaged in three fronts: against Israel, inside Syria and vis-à-vis the internal Lebanese arena.

The IDF believes that so far, Hezbollah has lost more than 200 operatives in Syrian battles against rebel force operating in Lebanon, and that its casualties in the Syrian civil war number in the thousands.
