JP: Hezbollah suffering Talibanesque casualties?

The Jerusalem Post, which is obviously reflecting one side of things — but would you trust anything Hizballah said?– reports that IDF has sealed off Bint Jbail, with casualty ratios that mimic what Coalition forces have encountered whacking the Taliban in Afghanistan.

In this case, 55 to 3, the three in question being light casualties, and the 55 including a regional commander.

I’ve read heavier than that on the Israeli side, but those had MUCH worse numbers for Hezbollah.  Hard to tell at this point.

If supported (and that much will become clear over the next day or two), that would establish quite clearly that Hezbollah are okay bushwhackers, but certainly not your go-to guys for a standup fight.
