Justified response?

Israel’s death toll: 24 people killed (including 12 civilians)

Lebanon’s death toll: ~150 people killed (Mostly civilians, including 7 Canadians vacationing)

Entire apartment buildings have been reduced to rubble.

Is the IDF trying to use scare tactics to intimidate militant groups? I don’t think it will deter the enemy, it will grow the enemy. Update: I visited the Israel Defense Forces website earlier and read that their plan is to destroy all infrastructure acquired by the Hezbollah used to carry out terrorist attacks. The two issues are whether the toll on civilians is justified, and whether it will actually deter or encourage these militant groups. Opinions?
