Sources close to the Hezbollah – which Israel and the United States regard as a terrorist group – have told G2Bulletin that the organization has devised military plans to occupy "Galilee," or northern Israel, should the Jewish state attack Lebanon, according to a report from Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.
A few weeks back, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said in a public speech commemorating Hezbollah "martyrs," particularly Hezbollah operations chief Imad Muganiyeh whom Hezbollah believes Israel assassinated in Syria two years ago, that Hezbollah was prepared to occupy the region.
"If Israel tries to invade Lebanon again, then be ready to occupy Galilee," Nasrallah declared.
Now, a source close to Hezbollah said that plans have been devised to allow faction members to occupy Galilee within a matter of hours, based on knowledge of the area by residents who left and now reside in Lebanon.
"Hezbollah's resistance has detailed knowledge of the nature of the landscape and can thereby move easily," the source said. "Tactically, it is very much possible and even in a very short period of time.
"Hezbollah is well trained for this and they know every square meter in all of Galilee. They don't even need tunnels. They have areas like Maroun Al Ras that can allow them to study the territory," he added.
He said that Hezbollah needs only to hold seven or 10 of the districts there.
"And with small groups of about 40 to 50 well-trained and well-equipped fighters, they can take control, and force a siege on the entire area making close combat impossible for Israel."
