More IDF troops have been wounded in the north as Hezbollah continues to aim dozens of rockets at Israel. As tensions rise, many are watching Israel’s northern border and have concerns of major escalation, reports The Times of Israel:

Hezbollah launched a barrage of rockets and a swarm of explosive-laden drones at northern Israel on Thursday, setting off sirens in numerous communities, sparking fires and injuring two people, as the terror group continued what it said was a response to the killing of a senior commander in an Israeli airstrike earlier in the week…

An American official said Thursday that the United States was very concerned about an escalation on the Israel-Lebanon border leading to a full-on war, adding that specific security arrangements are needed for the area and a ceasefire in Gaza is not enough.

Israel said that Hezbollah, its patron Iran, and the government of Lebanon bear “full responsibility” for the spiraling violence, while hinting that a further escalation could be in store.
