Ben speaks this week with Maj. (res.) Danny Citrinowicz, one of Israel’s most notable experts on Iran, its proxies in the region and its nuclear ambitions. Citrinowicz refers to the barrage of 19 rockets fired by Hezbollah against Israel last Friday. He explains that Hezbollah’s main concern in general is the deterrence equation with Israel. Hezbollah's leadership now worries that Israel might exploit the growing insecurity in Lebanon to further attack the group, "especially after recent statements by Israeli seniors over pre-emptive strikes against Hezbollah’s precise-missile facilities."
