The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced on Sunday that they had engaged in a firefight with Hezbollah, a terrorist group backed by Iran, in a disputed region within Israel.
This clash occurred shortly after a devastating attack carried out by the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas, which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Israelis and left thousands more injured.
Hezbollah, a militant group supported by Iran, launched precision-guided rockets and artillery at three positions in the Shebaa Farms area. They claimed that this action was a display of solidarity with the Palestinian people following a coordinated assault by Palestinian terrorists on Israeli towns.
Hashem Safieddine, a senior Hezbollah figure, issued a warning that the attack in Shebaa served as a “message” to both Israelis and the U.S. to cease their “foolishness,” or else the entire region could be engulfed in conflict.
Safieddine stated, “The responsibility requires all the members of our nation to not remain neutral, and we are not neutral.”
He added, “The resistance sent a message this morning in Kfarshouba to convey that it is our right to target the enemy that continues to occupy our land, and the Israelis must understand this message clearly.”
“There is a message to the Americans and Israelis that the events in Gaza signify that your prolonged foolishness and underestimation have led to Operation Al-Aqsa Flood. If you continue down this path, you will witness the flood of the entire nation, not just Al-Aqsa,” he threatened.
Safieddine also warned that “the sight of settlements being stormed around Gaza, along with rocket attacks, will one day be repeated on a much larger scale, from Lebanon and all the neighboring areas of occupied Palestine.”
Now, on Monday, the Iranian-proxy Hezbollah High Command issued a statement to Israel, proclaiming, “We are coming.”
