Israel can now strike Hezbollah with four-to-five times the bombing power than was used in the 2006 war with Lebanon, Israeli Air Force Maj.-Gen. Amir Eshel said Wednesday.

Speaking at this year's Herzliya Conference of Israel's aerial defense operations, the IAF commander spoke of a potential future war between the Jewish state and its northern neighbor, saying such an aggression would largely be fought in the air.

In addition, Eshel warned civilians in southern Lebanon to leave their homes if war with Israel breaks out, saying that "every four out of five homes has weapons hidden in them."
