Israel will not be deceived by the quiet along the Lebanese border as Hezbollah continues to arm itself, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot said Sunday.

"There’s been quiet on the Lebanese border for over a decade. The security situation and peace are common interests to both Israel and Lebanon, but the IDF will not be deceived by the tranquility," he said in Tzafat at a ceremony marking the change in the Northern Command. "Hezbollah continues to arm itself and grow inside Lebanon. We will continue to act decisively to thwart these efforts and will continue to prevent the transfer of advanced  weapons to Hezbollah.”

"In the next war there will be a clear address: the Lebanese government,” Eisenkot said, adding that "Hezbollah continues to violates UN resolutions and prepare themselves for war. In light of the changes in Lebanon and Syria, the IDF will act to prepare for any scenario."
