Netanyahu Vows To “Restore Security” In The North

During a tour of Israel’s northern border with Lebanon on Wednesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that Israel was ready to take strong action in the north.

Lebanese militant group Hezbollah has frequently targeted Israeli towns near the border with rocket and drone launches, leading to the evacuation of many of these towns.

The rockets set off massive wildfires this week, burning swathes of land across northern Israel.

“Whoever thinks that they can harm us and we will sit idly by is making a big mistake. We are prepared for a very strong action in the north. In one way or another we will restore security to the north,” Netanyahu said.

Iran-backed Hezbollah and Israel have been exchanging fire for the past eight months in parallel with the Gaza war, raising concerns that an even wider conflict could break out between the heavily armed adversaries.

The hostilities between Israel and Hezbollah are the worst since their 2006 war, forcing tens of thousands of people on both sides of the border to flee their homes.
