The Israeli media devoted space to talking about the losses that Israel might suffer if a comprehensive war broke out with the Lebanese Hezbollah, at a time when other media outlets touched on criminal violations committed by occupation soldiers in the Gaza Strip.

The Hebrew newspaper "Calcalist" published a report prepared by 100 senior commanders of the occupation army and government officials about the expected losses if a comprehensive, multi-arena war broke out.

The report estimated that 3,000 missiles would fall on Israel daily, leading to the destruction of 100 sites daily in various regions, amid estimates of 2,000 Israeli deaths over a period of 21 days before international intervention stopped this war.

Criminal violations

In another context, the Israeli Military Prosecutor, Colonel Yifat Tomer Yerushalmi, warned of criminal violations committed by occupation army soldiers in the Gaza Strip.

The military official described these practices and statements as “unacceptable,” and considered them “behavior that deviates from the values ​​of the army and the military establishment, and causes strategic harm to Israel and its army in the international arena.”

On a third topic, the Israeli media focused on a new confrontation looming on the horizon between the occupation army and Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich, who is also a minister in the Ministry of Defense according to the coalition agreements that paved the way for the formation of the current government.

Military analysts warned of Smotrich's powers to appoint the Deputy Head of the Civil Administration in the Israeli Army, even though Defense Minister Yoav Galant and former Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi had previously opposed the matter.

A number of senior officials in the Israeli security services believe that this appointment will lead to the introduction of partisan political considerations within the ranks of the army, and may harm the chain of command, in addition to reservations on the part of the current Chief of Staff, Herzi Halevy, especially regarding Smotrich’s responsibility for settlement expansion and the demolition of settlement outposts.
