Israel’s Defense Minister Yoav Gallant has warned the Lebanon-based Hezbollah group that it can and will attack if Beirut continues to attack Israel’s northern border. “What we are going in Gaza, we can also do in Beirut,” Gallant warned.
Hezbollah is making a “grave mistake” by continuing to carry out attacks close to Israel’s northern border. Israel added to the warning that it would be the Lebanese citizens who would pay the price in an escalation of conflict, much like the Gaza citizens are right now. “Hezbollah is dragging Lebanon into a war that may happen, and it is making mistakes,” Gallant said. “If it makes mistakes of this kind, the ones who will pay the price are first of all the citizens of Lebanon. What we are doing in Gaza we know how to do in Beirut,” the minister warned, according to a report by RT.
Addressing the Hezbollah threat, Gallant said that the “noses of [our] planes are pointing north,” adding that the Israeli Air Force is using just one-tenth of its assets in Gaza.
If Iran gets involved any further, the United States is also going to join the fray really taking this war up a few notches.

Speaking while on a visit to troops at the IDF’s 91st Division’s base in northern Israel on Saturday, Gallant warned the Hezbollah leadership that it is “close to making a grave mistake,” The Times of Israel reported. He added that it would be the people of Beirut who would suffer should skirmishes continue in Israel’s north. -RT

“There has been a quantitative improvement in the number of operations, the size and number of targets, as well as an increase in the type of weapons,” Nasrallah said, according to Reuters, and as reported by RT.
