‘Hezbollah will retaliate for hit on its commander’

Report: Dead Hezbollah member headed air defense unit

It would be extremely unwise for Hezbollah to respond in a big way against Israel right now. If they do anything, it will be another Bulgaria type of attack against soft targets in another country. I think Israel would relish the excuse to hit Hezbollah defenses in southern Lebanon while they are engaged in Syria. Israel knows another conflict with Hezbollah is just around the corner and it is all about weakening them before things erupt. Really though, Hezbollah is doing a pretty good job of that by themselves.
