On Tuesday, at least four people have died in new attacks by the Israeli Army against areas in southern Lebanon. The attacks resulted in the death of an 80-year-old Lebanese woman and her granddaughter, who was injured and transferred to a hospital in the area. Two journalists from Al Mayadeen died due to the bombings against Tair Harfa, according to their network. The Israeli Army has stated that several Air Force planes have identified and attacked three anti-tank squadrons in the Lebanese border area, as well as terrorist targets of Hezbollah, including military infrastructure. This is not the first time that attacks have been carried out on Israeli territory across the border with Lebanon, which has sparked clashes in the region.
The attacks are part of ongoing clashes between Israel and Hezbollah militants based in Lebanon. The Israeli Army has warned of a possible military response if these clashes continue or escalate into a larger conflict. Hezbollah has denied any involvement in these attacks and claims that its actions are only aimed at defending its own interests and those of its ally Palestine.
The situation is tense on both sides, with fears of an expansion of the conflict into neighboring countries such as Syria or Jordan. In recent weeks, there have been tensions between Israel and Iranian-backed militias operating in Syria near Israel’s border with Syria. These militias are believed to be linked to Hezbollah and may be responsible for some of these recent attacks against Israelis.
In this context, it is important for both sides to deescalate tensions and work towards resolving their differences peacefully through diplomatic means. It is also important for regional actors such as Syria and Jordan to play a constructive role in this process by supporting efforts to prevent further violence and promote stability in the region.
