Israel, Hezbollah trade fire across volatile Lebanese border

IDF Boosts Defense at Israel-Lebanon Border

In the past few days, the Israeli army announced it would deploy military reinforcements to the border with Lebanon.

Israeli forces exchanged fire with Hezbollah fighters along the volatile Israeli-Lebanese frontier on Monday, the heaviest fighting between the bitter enemies in almost a year.

Moreover, the Jerusalem Post says, Israel has sent a "message" to Hezbollah through Russian Federation to keep calm.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) did not provide immediate details of the incident. "Non-essential auto traffic should be avoided", an army spokesperson said.

Israel's N12 TV News said the military had foiled an attack by Hezbollah.

The Redmond, Wash. -based company was early in shifting employees to remote working when Covid-19 cases spread across the U.S. Excluding extraordinary events and charges, profits would have been up 5% for the quarter, the company said.


The militia rejected the accusations. "All activities in the open space are prohibited, including agricultural work, resorts and tourism", the IDF said.

It said the Israeli claims "are not true at all and are attempts to invent illusive victories", and said its retaliation for last week's deadly airstrike "is definitely coming and the Zionists should remain waiting for the punishment for their crimes".

"I do not suggest our enemies to test us", Gantz said in a statement.

Former environment minister Wiam Wahhab tweeted: "I doubt that what happened in South Lebanon today was an operation by the resistance...but it seems that the Israelis are petrified from an operation".

After the alleged incident, a resident's house was hit by Israeli shelling in Al Hbareyye, a border village in southern Lebanon's Al Aarqoub region. It was their first cross-border clash for years. "We stepped out to the balcony and saw thick smoke rising up near Haramoun Mountain", he said.

Israel sees the presence of Hezbollah and its ally Iran in Syria as a strategic threat and has mounted hundreds of raids on Iran-linked targets there.

"Lebanon and Hezbollah will bear the responsibility for any attack from Lebanese territory", Netanyahu said in broadcast remarks, shortly before the reports of Monday's incident.

"The military is prepared for every scenario", he said. The missile landed just outside the Druze town of Majdal Shams in Israel's territory (Explosion on Israel-Syrian Border on Golan Heights).

The fighting occurred in an area known as Chebaa Farms, which was captured by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war and is claimed by Lebanon. The military has also cleared troops out of positions directly along the border, pulling them further back into Israel so as to prevent them from being an easy target for Hezbollah. Israel, which has neither confirmed nor denied it carried out the strike in the early hours of last Monday, had warned Hezbollah not to retaliate.

"Once they crossed the border, we engaged", he said.
