Since the start of the war, the northern border with Lebanon has been tense as IDF and Hezbollah have had daily crossfire, and now the IDF might be at a turning point if they cannot secure the border, reports The Times of Israel:

Gallant said the country had a duty to restore security and return evacuated Israeli residents to their communities along the border, and although Israel would prefer to do this through diplomacy, it was “prepared to do this through military force,” a statement from the defense minister’s office said.

Since October 8, a day after the deadly Hamas attacks on southern Israel, Hezbollah has engaged in cross-border fire on a near-daily basis, launching rockets, drones and missiles at northern Israel in a campaign it says is in support of Hamas. The attacks forced most residents several kilometers from the border to evacuate. Israel has responded with its own regular strikes on Hezbollah targets, and has warned it will not be able to tolerate the terrorists’ continued presence on the border…

Meanwhile, the IDF announced that it had carried out a wave of airstrikes against Hezbollah targets in Lebanon.

Fighter jets struck in Ramyah, targeting military buildings and other infrastructure belonging to the terror group, according to the IDF.
