Israeli Defense Chief Warns Hezbollah: Strikes On Gaza Were "Only Tip Of The Iceberg"

• Zero Hedge

Coming off last month's eleven day Gaza war in which there were persistent fears that a 'northern front' would open against Israel if Hezbollah joined the fray (and after multiple missiles launched from southern Lebanon reportedly by Palestinian factions in the country), Israel's Defense Minister Benny Gantz has warned that the next potential war in Lebanon will see "overwhelming force" used. 

The words were given at a ceremony marking Israel's official recognition of the army's 18-year occupation of southern Lebanon, which is now considered an official military campaign. Referencing the devastating latest strikes on Gaza, which killed almost 250 Palestinians - many of them children - Gantz said the campaign was "only the tip of the iceberg" in terms of military capabilities and what Lebanon's Hezbollah would face next.
