The head of Israel's military said the likelihood of war on Israel's northern front is now "much higher" than in recent times, APA reports citing CNN.

Israel's Chief of the General Staff Herzi Halevi said on Wednesday said his country is increasing its readiness for "fighting in Lebanon." He made the comments while visiting a reservists' exercise near the border with Lebanon.

"I don't know when the war in the north is, I can tell you that the likelihood of it happening in the coming months is much higher than it was in the past," Halevi said.

He also said attaining Israel's goal of returning residents who have fled amid Israel-Hezbollah clashes "must come through a very significant change."

He also said that much had been learned from the war underway with Hamas in Gaza.

"We have a lot of lessons from the fighting in Gaza, many of which are very relevant to fighting in Lebanon, and there are some that must be adapted," the military chief said.
