"Hizbullah is still deterred and restrained due to its commitment to the Lebanese elections, Israeli measures, the organization's incomplete rehabilitation efforts and its allegiance with Iran," said Military Intelligence chief Maj.-Gen. Amos Yadlin. Speaking at the weekly cabinet meeting Sunday, Yadlin told the ministers that while the organization is still determined to strike at Israel, he does not anticipate full-fledged warfare with the organization. "On the other hand, Hizbullah is intent on carrying out attacks to avenge [the group's chief operations officer Imad] Mughniyeh's death in February, a month in which Abbas Mussawi was also taken out. Yet they do not want a war," he added.
