Israeli minister Yossi Peled warns of new war with Hezbollah

shia-hezbollah-300x199 Israel is heading toward a new war with Lebanon’s Shia movement Hezbollah, a cabinet minister warned Saturday in remarks carried by military radio and the popular Ynet news website. “We are heading toward a new confrontation in the north but I don’t know when it will happen, just as we did not know when the second Lebanon war would erupt,” said Yossi Peled, a minister without  portfolio and a reserve army general. He was referring to the devastating war Israel fought with Hezbollah in 2006, which killed more than 1,200 Lebanese, most of them civilians, and more than 160 Israelis, mostly soldiers.
