(NEWS) IDF Chief In Rome: Israel Lives 2,000 Years After Temple Razed

"IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi, speaking at the Arch of Titus 1940 years after the Roman Empire destroyed the Second Holy Temple, declared, 'We are here, on the eve of Tisha B’Av, the day the Jewish Temple was destroyed by Titus, and together with the Jewish Community we say, ‘The Nation of Israel lives.’'

He also told senior editors of the Italian media, 'Hizbullah duplicates sections of southern Lebanon underground, and is building an underground infrastructure of command centers and rocket launchers, mostly within the Shiite villages in southern Lebanon, as well as other parts of Lebanon.'

The IDF Chief of Staff warned that 'throughout Lebanon, including in southern Lebanon, residential villages were turned into 'surface-to-surface rocket villages,' while Hizbullah is taking advantage of the local population and the lack of UNIFIL's mandated authority, to strengthen its command centers and rocket launchers inside the villages'"
