Gallant Highlights IDF Success Against Hezbollah Commanders

Location: IDF Northern Command, Israel
Date: Wednesday, 29 May 2024

Today, Minister of Defense Yoav Gallant conducted an operational situation assessment and visited several command and control centers within the IDF’s Northern Command. He was accompanied by the Head of the Command, Maj. Gen. Uri Gordin.

During his visit, Minister Gallant addressed recent claims made by Hezbollah Leader Hassan Nasrallah, who accused the Israeli Defense Ministry of inflating casualty numbers. In response, Gallant presented images of Hezbollah brigade commanders and revealed that the IDF has eliminated over 300 terrorists and commanders within the organization.

“I have just completed a situation assessment and tour of the Northern Command,” Gallant stated. “I was very impressed with the precise work conducted by our troops, by the way they defend the border and engage Hezbollah.”

He continued, “Nasrallah is dragging Lebanon into a very, very difficult reality – one in which the people of Lebanon and Hezbollah forces will suffer the consequences of Hezbollah’s actions. This is the same Nasrallah who told you two weeks ago that there were no casualties among Hezbollah terrorists.”

Gallant pointed to images of eliminated Hezbollah leaders, including the Brigade Commander of Bint Jbeil, senior officer Abu Madi, and Commander of the Radwan forces, Jawad Twil. “Aren’t they all Hezbollah members? This is a partial list – there are 320 terrorists killed, including senior operatives. If you [Hezbollah] continue, we will accelerate,” Gallant warned.–News Desk
