The chief of the Israeli Air Force, Maj. Gen. Tomer Bar, issues a warning to the Hezbollah terror group, saying hundreds of Israeli fighter jets are ready to strike at a moment’s notice.

“Hezbollah will continue to pay with the loss of its systems. Dozens of aircraft are now operating in the skies of southern Lebanon, and as soon as the order is given, the dozens will turn into hundreds that will perform the missions within minutes of being scrambled,” Bar says at an internal IAF conference.

During the conference, senior officers summarized the IAF’s recent activities amid the war in the Gaza Strip, and presented the plans for 2024, which is expected to be a year of fighting.

Hezbollah has been carrying out daily rocket, missile and drone attacks on northern Israel.

The IDF has in response been targeting the terror group’s sites, killing nearly 200 of its operatives.
