Hizbullah officer: We would’ve given up

Ever notice, whenever Israel turns the tide against its determined foes, out to eradicate it, the international community jumps in to save the skins of those who attack Israel? Then, they rearm and repeat.

Today’s report: “ ‘The cease-fire acted as a life-jacket for the organization [at the end of the Second Lebanon War],’ “ a Hizbullah officer said in an interview…”

In the interview, the unnamed officer said Hizbullah gunmen would have surrendered if the fighting last summer had continued for another 10 days.

His statement sharply contrasted with those made by Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah on several occasions since the monthlong war. …the organization’s gunmen had been running low on food and water and facing rapidly diminishing arms supplies.

The officer also said that many Hizbullah commanders were ordered to hide before the war started, and that the gunmen who remained were forced to fire Katyusha rockets from inside urban populations because of the IDF’s efficiency in destroying launchers minutes after a launch had been detected.

He said that when the gunmen relocated to cities and villages, they knew innocent civilians would be hurt as a consequence.
