Moment Israeli army obliterates Hezbollah targets as fears of new conflict erupt
IDF releases video showing airstrikes on Hezbollah in the border area with Lebanon
This is the stunning moment Israel’s army completely obliterates military targets of Hezbollah with missiles near the border of Lebanon amid fears of a much bigger conflict erupting across the Middle East.
The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) took to X (formerly Twitter) to say one of the many targets hit in the past 24 hours was a military observation post in the northern town of Rosh Hanikra.
One Israeli tank successfully took out two anti-tank-guided missiles in southern Lebanon in anticipation of a possible attack.
Another was a drone strike targeted towards a terror cell in the Malkia area in Israel toward the highly contentious border.
The latest round of missile strikes were in response to shooting incidents in Israel during the previous 24 hours, according to the IDF.
Tensions on the Israel-Lebanon border have surged over recent days following the ongoing fighting that has escalated in the wake of the brutal Hamas attack that has killed some 1,400 Israelis.
There have also been numerous reports of attacks and rockets fired by Hezbollah – which functions as a proxy of Iran and its largest benefactor – toward northern Israel from the north of Lebanon.
Last week, members of the Iran-backed terror group fired missiles and drones into Israel, sparking fears a wider war could skyrocket.
The IDF said Israel returned fire, striking a Hezbollah observation post, with its forces also killing “a number of terrorists” who tried to enter the country from Lebanon.

The latest worrying escalation in the Israel-Hamas conflict comes with US president Joe Biden becoming increasingly concerned about Hezbollah getting directly involved.
Hezbollah has said it is standing with Hamas, triggering fears the Iranian-backed could make a big move in the ongoing conflict.
The US has reacted swiftly, sending two aircraft carriers – the USS Gerald Ford and the USS Dwight Eisenhower – to the region.
This comes with reports Biden has “privately” given his backing to Israel over plans to invade Gaza and “crush Hamas” when he visited the country earlier this week.

The US president and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spent several hours locked in talks on Wednesday.
But Biden has also urged Israel to show “restraint” amid concerns the country has committed war crimes by imposing a siege on the Gaza Strip.
He said: “Don’t be consumed by that rage. After 9/11, while we sought justice and got justice, we made mistakes.”
