Brig.-General (Res.) Zvika Fogel expressed his concern in an interview to Galey Israel on Sunday, over Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah's reticence.
"We need to remove the term 'according to foreign media,' Israel is no longer hiding its actions in Syria," Fogel claimed. "What Israel is doing in the last years is an attempt to deny Hezbollah the ability to threaten Israel and deny Iran's establishment in Syria to avoid a confrontation."
"I would love to hear Nasrallah speak and say if we are on the verge of battle," Fogel conveyed. "Nasrallah's silence could mean they are either planning new operations, or they are trying to estimate the damages done."
Fogel also related to Hezbollah saying "it is not a passive organization," saying that "over the years [Hezbollah] has tried to remain a threat, but lately they remain silent."
