Is a new Israel-Lebanon war looming while the world is busy with Ukraine? — RT Op-Edge
The Lebanese government wants the UN to investigate the airstrikes on Lebanese territory, allegedly by Israeli warplanes, on February 24. On Saturday, March 1, Israel announced that Hezbollah had bombarded its positions on the Golan Heights the night before, after it vowed to retaliate for earlier airstrikes Israel had carried out targeting a Hezbollah convoy carrying weapons near the Syrian border, as was reported by Israeli media.
In both cases, there was no information available regarding the number of victims or the buildings destroyed. So, what did Israel bomb in Lebanon on Monday? Did this even happen? And if so, where was it, in Lebanon or in Syria?
After the supposed attack on the Hezbollah base, Israel warned Lebanon that it will hold the Lebanese authorities accountable if Hezbollah retaliates. Hezbollah promised to strike back but it is highly unlikely that they would retaliate by launching a single rocket which failed to hit any targets. Still, Israel blames Hezbollah for the rocket attack near an IDF post in Mount Hermon early on Saturday morning.
Yet Israel isn’t offering any evidence, even though its entire border is bristling with a network of hundreds of tracking devices.
Lebanon, in its turn, knows that Israel withdrew its troops from the border village of Al-Gajar shortly before the alleged attack.
