Air Operations in Israel's War Against Hezbollah: Learning from Lebanon and Getting It Right in Gaza
Examines the inconclusive results of the Israeli Defense Forces’ operation in Lebanon after Hezbollah abducted two Israeli soldiers in 2006, which many believe represents a “failure of air power." The author demonstrates that this is an oversimplification of a more complex reality and contrasts the operation with Israel’s counteroffensive against Hamas in the Gaza Strip in December 2008 and January 2009.
