Hezbollah vows retaliation, Israel remains on high alert after terrorist infiltration attempt
Lebanese terror group Hezbollah denied its Muslim terrorists attempted to infiltrate into Israeli territory, calling the Israeli account a move to create “false victories”.
Israeli defense officials scoffed at the terror group’s denial, saying the infiltration attempt had been filmed by military security cameras and that the terrorists who took part in it were armed.
The IDF said it was considering releasing the footage from the terrorist infiltration.
Hezbollah should realize that Israel will do what it takes to defend itself, PM Netanyahu warned today following a meeting with IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen Aviv Kochavi.
“All that is happening now is the result of an attempt to establish a military foothold in our area by Iran and its satellites in Lebanon,” Netanyahu said.
“I don’t suggest that anyone try the IDF or Israel. We are determined to defend ourselves. The IDF is prepared for any scenario,” Netanyahu added calling the incident “important”.
The IDF remained on high alert Tuesday along the northern border amid fears that Hezbollah would try to carry out another attack.
