Israel carried out aerial attacks on Hezbollah observation posts last Wednesday in response to shots being fired across the border.

Meanwhile, Israel has also been bombing Gaza since early August, in response to fire-starting balloons launched into Israeli territory. However, Hamas and Israel have reached a cease-fire agreement on that front.

Tom Doyle of Uncharted Ministries explains the situation. “Israel hasn’t had a problem with the government of Lebanon, they have had a problem with the southern area in Lebanon that overlooks Israel.”

Doyle says Hezbollah holds this territory now. “They are there to agitate keep Israel back on their feet, continually threatening them with war. But just recently, Israel has had to respond. And that’s been rare because Hezbollah has been in hiding and kept at bay. Now, all of a sudden, it’s getting worse.”
