Israel shifts IDF troops to northern border in preparation for conflict with Lebanon; Israel has already begun limiting traffic in the area as of Tuesday; United States carries out airstrike in northern Syria, killing a minimum of 40 jihadists.
Amid high tensions and threats from Lebanese leadership, Israel is deploying more IDF soldiers to the northern border in preparation for conflict with Lebanon. After alleged Israeli drone strikes in Lebanon this past week, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah vowed revenge. Without limiting where Lebanon plans to strike, Nasrallah claimed, “Our response for last week’s events will be launched from within Lebanon against Israeli targets. We usually strike in the area of the Shebba Farms Mount Dov”, oddly mentioning where they may strike. Additionally, the Israeli Navy is on high alert, should an attack take place on one of their vessels.
Meanwhile, the United States has carried out a devastating strike in Syria, which is believed to have killed at least 40 terrorist leaders. The Pentagon has claimed responsibility for the attack and it is said to have targeted multiple groups within the confines of a training camp. The US Central Command stated that the attack came as a result of these groups aiming to bring instability to the region and threaten innocent civilian lives. They also stated, “Additionally, the removal of this facility will further degrade their ability to conduct future attacks and destabilize the region.” The strike took place in the Idlib region, which consists of approx. 3 million people.
It is still unknown as to the type of missiles that were used, whether they were launched from the ground or delivered by plane.
