Israel attacked on Monday Records of the Hezbollah terrorist group in LebanonAs hostilities continue along the Lebanon-Israel border, the Israeli Defense Minister, Yves Cullent, vowing to continue bombing until Israel restores the security of its people.

“Earlier today, Israeli warplanes attacked an army post in Maroun Al Ras in southern Lebanon. According to him, “many Hezbollah terrorists were inside” and after the attack, “Several secondary explosions were identified, indicating the presence of weapons within the structure.”An Israeli military spokesman said in a statement.

In turn, Israeli forces announced that they had struck three other observation posts of the terrorist group and a military compound in Marwahim, Taibe, Chihine, Tair Harfa, Kafargela and Bilita in other parts of southern Lebanon.

“Hezbollah's activity south of the Litani River in Lebanon, including the use and stockpiling of weapons, is a clear violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701,” the Israeli military said. “Will continue to defend Israel's borders against any threat.”

Clashes between Israel and Hezbollah and other Palestinian groups in southern Lebanon have been virtually daily since the October 7 war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, leading to heightened tensions in the region. The biggest escalation of hostilities on the border between Lebanon and Israel since the 2006 war has already pitted the Israeli state against Hezbollah.

The Shiite group is currently attacking Israeli territories in support of Hamas and PalestineAlthough the escalation of tension has been relatively moderate and has not led to open war, Israel has warned that it is ready to intensify attacks if the Lebanese group does not withdraw from the border area.

“A war in the north would be challenging for Israel, but disastrous for Hezbollah and Lebanon. “Israel will not stop firing until it guarantees the safe return of tens of thousands of Israeli citizens,” the Israeli Defense Minister warned in a meeting with his French counterpart today.

Callant stressed that Israeli officials want to defuse the conflict with Hezbollah “through diplomatic channels.”

“Even if Hezbollah unilaterally ceases fire, Israel will not do so until it guarantees the safe return of northern communities to their homes,” Galant warned.

Deaths along the Lebanon-Israel border since the start of the conflict There are at least 226 people, including 18 Israelis – 12 soldiers and six civilians – and about 208 in Lebanon.Among them were 20 Palestinian militants, one soldier, 23 civilians – including a journalist and three children – in addition to members of the Lebanese terror group.

The gradual escalation of violence has unleashed fears of an open war between the parties, especially after an attack Israel blamed on Israel killed Saleh al-Aruri, the number two of the Islamist movement Hamas, in Beirut in early January.
