Extracts from Hebrew news

Ashkenazi: ‘Calm in the region is fragile’, and adds: ‘Hezbollah does not arm itself in order to carry out military drills’. Yediot Ahronot, 20.12.2010

‘IDF nixes live anti-tank missile test after complaints. The test was supposed to include a live antitank missile fired at a Merkava Mk 4 tank equipped with the Trophy active-protection system.’ Yaakov Katz, JPost, 20.12.2010

Security and Defense: ‘We will know how to smash them’. IDF commanders this week reviewed lessons learned from the Second Lebanon War and military readiness for future wars.’ Yaakov Katz, JPost, 20.12.2010

‘Hizbullah has always been weaker than us’, Yehezkel said during an interview on the sidelines of the exercise on Wednesday. ‘Today, four years after the last war, we are better prepared and have better plans, better technology and there is no question about what the results of the next war will be.’ It is that clear to you? ‘Yes,’ Yehezkel answers without blinking an eye, ‘Hizbullah will be in major trouble.’
