Rising Border Tensions: Another Strike By Israel On Lebanon

In recent developments along the Israeli-Lebanese border, tensions have escalated dramatically.

A series of deadly exchanges between Israeli forces and Hezbollah militants, along with an unprecedented attack by Iran using drones and missiles on Israel, occurred in response to an attack on the Iranian embassy in Damascus, making the situation increasingly alarming.

Yesterday, Israeli strikes in Southern Lebanon killed three people, including a Hezbollah field commander. The strike continues an ongoing series of exchanging fire between Hezbollah, the strong Iranian ally, and Israel since the beginning of its war on Gaza on October 7.

What’s Israel’s Reaction?

The Israeli military said its “aircraft struck and eliminated Ismail Yusef Baz, the commander of Hezbollah’s coastal sector,” adding that he was killed in the Ain Baal area.

Further statements were released by Lebanese local agencies, reporting one dead in an Israeli strike on a car in Ain Baal, about 15 kilometers (nine miles) from the border. Later, they reported “enemy warplanes” striking two cars in Shehabiya, about 10 kilometers from Ain Baal, and reported casualties.

Hezbollah announced in a statement that Baz had been killed without mentioning his rank or role in their organization. Earlier Tuesday, Hezbollah claimed an attack on Beit Hillel using explosive drones, with local Israeli authorities saying three people were wounded.

Tensions Rise at Israeli-Lebanese Border

The situation on the Israeli-Lebanese border continues to grow more tense, raising the alarm of an all-out war between Israel and Hezbollah for the first time since 2006. The exchanged hostilities have already claimed the lives of more than 360 Lebanese, including Hezbollah members, according to Lebanese sources, and 18 Israelis, according to military sources.
