Experts Predict 200 Israeli Fatalities In War With Hizbullah, Iran
The Israeli Defense Ministry estimated that if the country engaged in a war with Hizbullah and Iran some 200 Israeli civilians would die.
According to Israeli newspaper Haaretz, the number of fatalities could rise to 300 if Syria joins the war as well.
The Defense Ministry experts said that there would be “less than one fatality for every ballistic missile,” warning against Hizbullah’s arsenal that contains short and medium-range Katyusha rockets and hundreds of relatively accurate M-600 rockets.
The experts say that these rockets could strike the center of Israel.

My Comment: Only 200 Israeli fatalities .... 300 if they get involved in a war with Syria !!!!! I do not think so.
A more realistic analysis is this assessment .... where Israeli commanders themselves are admitting that if a war should break out, the goal will be to annihilate Hezbollah .... a military operation that will dwarf the last Israel - Hezbollah war that claimed 1,200 casualties. Throw in Syria and Iran .... hmmmm .... we are talking thousands of casualties.
