From the Sheldon Adelson Internet web site Israel Hayom an item by Elliott Abrams portions extracted most pertinent.
Israel exceedingly susceptible [?] to attack by Hezbollah precision guided missiles? The targets vital infrastructure electrical power production perhaps foremost.
Abrams relying heavily [?] on an original article co-authored by Ron Tira and Gideon Sa'ar!
Concerning Ron Tira and his specific expertise in such matters:
"Tira is a strategist who was a longtime Israeli Air Force officer and pilot"
"The next Israel-Hezbollah conflict"
"Regarding electricity generation in Israel, for example, out of a capacity to generate about 17,600 MW of electricity, 28% is installed in only two sites (with 10 cumulative production units -- turbines, for example). The six largest electricity generating sites in Israel (including private ones) account for 51% of the national capacity for electricity generation (using only 26 production units). Thus the threat represented by even a small number of precision missiles that breach Israel's countermeasures and strike critical systems, such as electricity generation, could be unprecedented"
HIT THAT ONE OR SEVERAL KEY POINTS OF INFRASTRUCTURE AND YOU SIGNIFICANTLY CRIPPLE YOUR ADVERSARY DURING A TIME OF WAR. ELECTRICITY IN PARTICULAR AS BEING ESSENTIAL TO MODERN HUMAN LIFE NO FURTHER ELABORATION REQUIRED!
