Maj. Gen. Tomer Bar who assumes top Air Force post in April, says Iranian terror proxy would be more than happy to wage a no-holds-barred war with Israel if one breaks out in the event of an Israeli attack on Iran's nuclear facilities
Israel's incoming Air Force commander said Wednesday that in the next war in Lebanon the Hezbollah terror group will suffer the kind of blow "it can't even imagine".
"He has been waiting for 30 years for that order [from Tehran] and there is no chance he will be absent from such a conflict, with all the force at his disposal. Israel must be prepared."
Bar, who will be tasked with carrying out a strike against Iran's nuclear facilities should one be ordered, understands that he may be required to carry out one of the most complex operations in country's history.
"I must assume that it might happen during my tenure, and I understand the magnitude of such an order," he said.
"Preparations have been underway for a while, including procurement of the F-35 jets and missile defense systems," Bar said, adding that if such an order is given, "there is no way that I will fly 1,000 kilometers and come home without succeeding in my mission."
