The fact that Israel sends only about 10,000-20,000 troops(barely 10% of the military) to deal with them, shows how serious Israel views them. However, if a rocket were to fall on Tel-Aviv, then Israel would actually respond in full force. They also won't give a f**k about international pressure and would continue to attack the Hamas and Hizbollah until they are completely finished.
Hezbollah trained militia numbers only about 3,000. During the 2006 Lebanon War, it manage to stop the Israeli offensive column at the 5 mile mark, about 15 mile short of the Litani River( the Israeli goal). And held the Israeli army in check at the 5 mile mark for 34 days before ceasefire was declared.
This was the first time an Arab force stop an Israeli armoured column.
