While the world is suffering from a bout the deadliest pandemic of this century, lasting effects of climate change and a virtual economic freeze putting lives at stake, the previous worldly conflicts are expected to stifle down a bit.
Like, people are basically supposed to stay within their homes, right? But just as the failing sense of awareness in the developed nations continues to plummet to worsen the crises, the developing nations have also grown lax, reviving Old World conflicts and blast-offs. One region that is pushing through with the old mistakes is the volatile region of the Israeli-Lebanese border, between the Israeli army and the Iranian-backed Hezbollah heading off each other. It has been reported that Hezbollah attacked first on Monday.
The Israeli army said that there had been three and five militants armed with assault rifles who dared the demarcation line, known as the Blue Line, between Israel and Lebanon by “a few meters,” then the Israeli military opened fire with small arms and tank fire. Hezbollah denied prior aggression. In reciprocation, Hezbollah has reported the Israeli airstrikes in the Lebanese town of al-Habaria, with damages.
“The Islamic Resistance affirms that there has been no clash or shooting from its part in the events of the day until now.
Rather, it was only one party, which was the fearful, anxious and tense enemy,” Hezbollah said in a statement.Israel Defense Forces (IDF) spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus: “We spotted them as they moved close to the Blue Line, monitored them and tracked them.
Shortly after they crossed the Blue Line, we engaged and were able to thwart the attack.We confirmed visually that the terrorists fled back to Lebanon. ”
The Israeli military said the operation took place near an area known as Har Dov in Israel and Shebaa Farms in Lebanon, which was captured by Israel in 1967 and is claimed by Lebanon.
The IDF also used artillery fire to create smoke screens “for defensive purposes,” Conricus said.There were no Israeli military casualties in the exchange, according to the IDF spokesman. He added that he did not have any information about the condition of the members of the Hezbollah cell.
The incident comes a week after an Israeli airstrike south of the Syrian capital, Damascus, was blamed for the killing of a Hezbollah fighter.
Despite denying having carried out an operation against Israeli forces on Monday, the group said in its statement that retaliation for the killing of one of its militants “is definitely coming.” Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah had previously vowed to respond to any Israeli killing of the group’s fighters in Syria.
