A high-level security cabinet meeting to discuss the increasing Iranian threat is scheduled for next week’s reports Israeli Army Radio.
“It could be in the form of a surface-to-surface missile, cruise missiles, or long-range UAVs,” Brig. Gen. Dror Shalom said.
According to the report, Iran could be planning a direct cruise missile or drone strike against Israel in retaliation for recent attacks against Iran’s allies in the Middle East.
Israel is expecting the missiles to not be high-arcing ballistic missiles that are easier to intercept, but rather low flying ones that are harder to detect.
Brig. Gen. Dror Shalom, the head of Military Intelligence’s Research Division told Israel Hayom that Israel expects to be attacked by Iran from southern Iraq.
“It could be in the form of a surface-to-surface missile, cruise missiles, or long-range UAVs. He has UAVs that can fly 1,000-1,200 kilometers (600-1200 miles) which he [Iran’s commander Qassem Soleimani] has used in the Persian Gulf,” Shalom said.
“In the end, when he takes a hit to the nose, he wants to hit back, and he has taken some blows recently. So my working assumption is that it’s only a matter of time until he tries,” he added.
Earlier this month, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called for an air defense project estimated to cost billions of shekels to counter such a threat.
According to Kan Bet, economic officials say the cost of Netanyahu’s proposed defense project would entail cutting a large number of funds to civilian projects and raising taxes.
Does Israel and the IDF have a plan?
With Iranian-backed Islamic terror groups threatening the Jewish state on both its southern and northern borders, the IDF released a new plan to confront efforts to attack Israel.
The IDF unveiled its new five-year plan of operations, with IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Aviv Kochavi stressing that Israel’s primary strategic threat remains Iranian entrenchment near its borders and its efforts to develop precision missiles with which to attack the Jewish state.
“The situation is fragile in the north and south — and may deteriorate into a confrontation,” warned Kochavi, according to the Algemeiner.
Kochavi added, “At the heart of [security threats to Israel is] the entrenchment of Iranian and other forces in Syria and the precision missile project. In both situations, this is an Iranian-led effort, using the territory of countries with extremely weak governments,” reported Ynet.
In his comments, Kochavi also referred to activities by both the Hamas terror group in Gaza and the Iranian proxy Hezbollah in Lebanon.
With regard to Lebanon, Kochavi commented that Hezbollah holds the country hostage and dictates its “security policy.”
“Israel’s central strategic challenge lies in the northern arena,” Ynet quoted Kochavi as saying.
Key features of the new operational plan, code-named “Momentum,” include massive investments in the IDF’s military capabilities, such as beefing up Israel’s mid-sized drone fleet, acquiring large numbers of precision-guided missiles from the U.S., and obtaining more air defense batteries, reported Times of Israel.
Under the plan, IDF training exercises will shift focus to urban combat, as opposed to open fields, which are the traditional venues for military exercises. These drills will simulate fighting in cities and towns, according to the Times, where the IDF believes future conflicts could take place.
While the plan officially goes into effect at the beginning of 2020, the Finance Ministry had yet to approve expenditures to pay for the costly initiative. The spending required for the Momentum Plan represents a significant increase compared to the IDF’s previous five-year strategy, the Gideon Plan.
The underlying philosophy driving the Momentum Plan is that Israel must decisively gain victory in any future conflict as rapidly as possible to prevent Hezbollah from launching a large-scale strike on the Jewish state.
On a practical level, this means being able to strike targets immediately to take out weapons and military assets that could be used to harm Israelis.
An Ordained Anointed Minister of Jesus Christ to Minister His Gospel, to this online Church; House of the Nazarene, To spread the Good News of Salvation to the four corners of the Earth.
All Christians have, in profession at least, received Jesus Christ the Lord, consented to him, and taken him for theirs. We cannot be built up in Christ, or grow in him, unless we are first rooted in him, or founded upon him. Being established in the faith, we must abound therein, and improve in it more and more. God justly withdraws this benefit from those who do not receive it with thanksgiving; and gratitude for his mercies is justly required by God.
There is a philosophy which rightly exercises our reasonable faculties; a study of the works of God, which leads us to the knowledge of God, and confirms our faith in him. But there is a philosophy which is vain and deceitful; and while it pleases men's fancies, hinders their faith: such are curious speculations about things above us, or no concern to us. Those who walk in the way of the world, are turned from following Christ. We have in Him the substance of all the shadows of the ceremonial law. All the defects of it are made up in the gospel of Christ, by his complete sacrifice for sin, and by the revelation of the will of God.
To be complete, is to be furnished with all things necessary for salvation. By this one word “complete,” is shown that we have in Christ whatever is required. “In him,” not when we look to Christ, as though he were distant from us, but we are in him, when, by the power of the Spirit, we have faith wrought in our hearts by the Spirit, and we are united to our Head. The circumcision of the heart, the crucifixion of the flesh, the death and burial to sin and to the world, and the resurrection to newness of life, set forth in baptism, and by faith wrought in our hearts, prove that our sins are forgiven, and that we are fully delivered from the curse of the law.
Through Christ, we, who were dead in sins, are quickened. Christ's death was the death of our sins; Christ's resurrection is the quickening of our souls. The law of ordinances, which was a yoke to the Jews, and a partition-wall to the Gentiles, the Lord Jesus took out of the way. When the substance was come, the shadows fled. Since every mortal man is, through the hand-writing of the law, guilty of death, how very dreadful is the condition of the ungodly and unholy, who trample under foot that blood of the Son of God, whereby alone this deadly hand-writing can be blotted out! Let not any be troubled about bigoted judgments which related to meats, or the Jewish solemnities.
The setting apart a portion of our time for the worship and service of God, is a moral and unchangeable duty, but had no necessary dependence upon the seventh day of the week, the Sabbath of the Jews. The first day of the week, or the Lord's day, is the time kept holy by Christians, in remembrance of Christ's resurrection. All the Jewish rites were shadows of gospel blessings.
