Israel prepares for war against Lebanon

The US fears that Israel will not be able to end a war against Hezbollah without support from Washington.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Northern Command, Ori Godin, and the head of the Operations Directorate of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), Oded Basiuk, have approved operational plans to launch an offensive in Lebanon after making a joint assessment of the situation.

Likewise, in the IDF statement released this Tuesday, it is reported that decisions have been made to increase the preparation of troops on the ground.

Last week, US officials told CBS News that the recent intensification of attacks by Israeli troops against Lebanese territory makes Washington fear that Tel Aviv could start "a war against Hezbollah that it will not be able to end without US support." ”.

Earlier this month, the Al Akhbar media reported that the speaker of the Lebanese Parliament, Nabih Berri, received a call from the American envoy Amos Hochstein, in which he assured him that Washington seeks to “reach a solution” on the border between Israel and the Lebanon and achieve a truce in Gaza, and then open talks on the “unagreed” points between Tel Aviv and Beirut.

Since the beginning of the war in the Palestinian enclave following the Hamas attack against Israel on October 7, the Lebanese Hezbollah movement has been clashing with the Jewish country in support of Gaza. Last week, an attack launched by the IDF against southern Lebanon cost the lives of Taleb Adbullah – considered the highest-ranking commander of the movement killed by Israel in the last eight months – and three other members of Hezbollah.

The next day, Hezbollah fired 160 rockets in one of its largest attacks against the Hebrew country since the start of hostilities, unleashing a spiral of violence. Last Thursday, Israeli troops bombed the Lebanese city of Janata, killing and wounding several people, most of them civilians.
