Fmr. Intelligence Chief: Gravest Threat Facing Israel Is ‘First Northern War’

(TPS) “The gravest threat we face is not the third Lebanon war, but the first northern war—simultaneous conflict with Hezbollah in Lebanon, Syria and Iran, which Hamas in the south is likely to join,” warned IDF Maj-Gen (res.) Amos Yadlin.

Speaking this week while presenting President Reuven Rivlin with the 2019 Strategic Assessment from the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) that he currently heads, Yadlin noted that “Israel of 2019 is a strong country; the IDF is extremely powerful and deters our enemies. The challenge is to take this strength and use it to reinforce the correct policy.”

The INSS research highlights the major political and diplomatic issues facing Israel in the near future. On the list of leading threats by severity, the INSS’s 2019 Strategic Assessment includes war with all the enemy forces and on all fronts in the north: Iran in the Golan Heights, Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Syrian regime, military conflict in the south with Hamas in Gaza, and a deterioration of the situation in Judea and Samaria.
