This is a very curious statement by the Major General. If the IDF was aware that ‘Hamas had asked Hezbollah to fire rockets’. That must mean that Israeli Intelligence has the capability to monitor Hezbollah military communication. Military security is something Hezbollah prides itself on. It is the reason for their monolithic existence. And if that’s the case... what would be the reason to disclose such information. Other then to send a direct message to Hezbollah. That all wars are terribly unpredictable... but the next encounter will be devastating to their existential life.
