JNS.org – The operation to neutralize Hezbollah’s attack tunnels is a tactical achievement, and a technological and intelligence success for the IDF. But alongside these accolades, we must also ask if Israel is doing everything in its power to weaken the terrorist organization in the long term. The answer, unfortunately, is no. Israeli officials do not understand that military operations on our northern border are not enough to weaken Hezbollah. These actions, as successful as they may be, will only reap short-term achievements. We saw this following the second Lebanon war, when Hezbollah took a major hit but quickly regained its strength and is now stronger than it has ever been.
