This is how war propaganda is done, the aim is to convince the other side not to start a fight. They laid out the IDFs strengths and weakness but did not do the same for Hezbollah and implied the IDF would get stuck in the swamp should they try attack. The current aim of the IDF is to limit and destroy any attack capability they can by a combination of destruction of arms depots and assassinations, they would also like to consolidate and extend their hold on the Golan heights and may expand in that area. They had been trying to create a proxy army using the Druze like they did with the Southern Lebonese Army, the Druze di not buy into this. Isreal also knows the Syrian war is drawing to a close so they want the strongest possible hand at the negotiating table, by creating a credible threat of invasion via the Golan heights, they hope to create a scenario that forces the Syrians to keep Hezbollah as far away from the border as possible.
