Israeli bombing of southern Lebanon

The calm that the Lebanese-Israeli border witnessed during the past two days did not continue. Israeli bombing of areas in southern Lebanon was renewed.
Today, Tuesday, an Israeli shell fell near the border town of Aita al-Shaab, according to what the National News Agency reported.
This came after the temporary humanitarian truce between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip was extended for two additional days, although this ceasefire does not include Lebanon.
Since the outbreak of the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip on October 7, following the attack launched by Hamas on Israeli settlements and military bases surrounding the Strip, tension has prevailed on the border between the two countries, in addition to almost daily confrontations between Israeli forces and Hezbollah.
However, these confrontations did not go beyond the limits of acceptable border clashes, according to what a number of experts saw.
The mutual bombing prompted Israel to evacuate tens of thousands of residents of northern villages and towns near the border as a precaution.
The Israeli authorities repeatedly threatened to turn Beirut into a second Gaza if Hezbollah militias continued to bomb it, holding the Lebanese government responsible for controlling the borders.
While the caretaker government and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs both confirmed that Lebanon does not want war, does not seek it, nor does it tolerate it, considering that the decision for war and escalation on the southern border is in Israel’s hands.
While international fears have increased that these skirmishes will go beyond the usual rules of engagement, and the Israeli-Palestinian war will expand into a more comprehensive regional conflict, which may open the door to the intervention of other armed groups supported by Iran, whether in Iraq, Syria, or even Yemen.
