Israel Vows To Continue Airstrikes Despite Growing Pressure
Hezbollah, which tangled with Israel in the past, is unlikely to do so now, says Tony Badran, an analyst at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
Hezbollah has rebuilt its arsenal of long-range missiles since 2006, when Israel dealt it a severe drubbing for thousands of rockets shot into northern Israel. Currently, however, many of Hezbollah's fighters are busy fighting to keep Syria's Bashar Assad in power in his three-year-old civil war.
“They don't want to risk a major conflagration at this particular point in time,” Badran said.
