Systematically, Hezbollah adapted its tactics, techniques, and procedures for conducting its operations. This included continued emphasis on Information Operations, counter intelligence operations aimed at eliminating and flipping Israeli operatives in Southern Lebanon, and the infiltration of their own agents into Northern Israel. They moved toward conducting not only coordinated large unit operations but also focusing on the counter-insurgency spectrum of warfare. After six years of the Long War the Army bracing for persistent conflict for at least several more, the warning signs are apparent. It seems possible that many of the situations that befell the IDF leading up to the 2006 conflict with Hezbollah are on the horizon for the U.S Army. One need only look at linkages between Hezbollah and potential U.S. adversaries, such as Iran and North Korea, as well as non-state actors, to see the need for the U.S. to learn from the IDF. Failure to do so could lead to catastrophic consequences in the event of a conflict. Is the Army ready for Hybrid War?
