Although unlikely at this time, the IDF is preparing itself for potential future hostilities with Hezbollah, which has developed new offensive cross-border capabilities alongside its massive arsenal of rockets and missiles, a senior military source said Sunday.

Hezbollah is planning to send dozens or hundreds of terrorists over the border into Israel in any future war, while targeting the Israeli home front with large numbers of projectiles, in a conflict that could last as long as four months, according to the officer's evaluations.

Hezbollah's focus will be to rain down rockets and missiles on Israel, but it is also planning raids based on lessons it has learned from its intervention in Syria. Such raids could be prevented by a preemptive Israeli ground offensive.
