‘Next war will be particularly violent’

Israel National News reports: “Roni Daniel, a military correspondent for News 2, stated during the panel ‘Coverage of the Next War’ at the annual media conference in Eilat that: ‘The next war will be particularly violent.’

‘I see the arena of the next war as being in Israel’s cities,’ Daniel said. ‘This will be the first war in which there will be more casualties on the home front than on the front lines, and small communities will be hit dramatically.’

‘We must coordinate expectations for the citizens of the state. The Iron Dome cannot provide complete protection. The IDF spokesman will not succeed in conducting the discourse on the social networks, but we have to live with it. The army will have to take [these] recommendations and explain the current situation,’ he added.

Daniel continued: ‘In wartime, it will be necessary [for the IDF] to be in all the Whatsapp groups in order to calm the public, and the next war will be particularly violent. During the Second Lebanon War, Hezbollah was on the verge of collapse, but we did not know it then. It is impossible to return to a situation in which the Lebanese state and its forces threaten Israel.’…”
