Gaza’s political armed forces, Hamas, are on the way to an end. This time the Israeli army is active against the Lebanese Armed Forces Hezbollah. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is planning to send more troops to the country’s northern border to deal with them.

He said these things in an interview given to Israel’s Channel 14 television on Sunday. Netanyahu said, “There is a possibility that we will move some forces to the north and we will do that.” It is clear in his comments that it is not Hamas, but Israel’s target this time in Lebanon. In the meantime, the fear of another war has appeared in the minds of the people of the world. This information came out in the report of Firstpost on Monday.

Since the start of the Gaza war on October 7, the tension between Israel and Hezbollah has once again come to a head. Last week, the conflict became more extreme. Because both sides were threatening each other.

In the interview, Netanyahu insisted he made the decision because of an increase in firefights with Iran-backed Hezbollah along the border.

During the war in Gaza, Israeli towns along the Lebanese border were evacuated. He said to bring back their residents in those areas. Defense measures are our first and foremost priority, Netanyahu said. Second, we want to bring our residents back. We will bring them back home, if not diplomatically. However, the Biden administration is worried about the security of the US troops in the bases in the Middle East due to the fear of this upcoming war. The U.S. military may not be able to provide the same kind of assistance in an all-out war with Lebanon’s Hezbollah as it did in countering Iran’s drone strike in April.

On Monday, Charles Q., the head of the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff. Brown expressed this caution in an interview. Israeli media reported the Jerusalem Post. General Brown of the US Air Force said that if the war starts, Iran will come forward to support Hezbollah. Iran also supports the Palestinian armed group Hamas in Gaza. But General Brown says, Tehran will stand firmly by Hezbollah. Especially if they think the Hezbollah group is a major threat. The US military chief said Israel’s military operations in Lebanon would increase the risk of a wider war. As a result, US troops will be in a dangerous situation. General Brown said that ensuring the safety of US troops is a US priority.

No US base in the Middle East has been attacked since February. However, as both sides are in a stubborn position, there is a fear that this war will start at any moment. In such a situation, Israel is moving troops and military equipment from Gaza’s Rafah to the Lebanese border to increase its power supply. At the same time, the country’s defense minister rushed to the main ally, the United States, to get more weapons. Because Hezbollah has a more professional army and advanced weapons than Hamas.

Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Galant arrived in Washington on Sunday to meet with US officials. During this visit, the Ministry of Defense said that they will discuss the Gaza war and the conflict situation with Lebanon and the return of hostages to Hamas. At the same time, Gallant will talk with US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and other officials. “The United States is our most important and most important ally,” Gallant said before leaving Israel on Saturday night. Our relationship is more important than ever at this time. “My job is to do everything to ensure that our brave fighters get the weapons they need,” Netanyahu said at the cabinet meeting.

In the meantime, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has indicated that he is ready to go to a “partial” ceasefire with the armed organization Hamas in Gaza. So that at least some, if not all, of the Israeli hostages can be brought back home from Gaza. However, he is still unwilling to reach an agreement that would pave the way for an end to the war in Gaza. In the same interview, Netanyahu said, “Our goal is to bring back the hostages and eliminate the rule of Hamas in Gaza.” The Gaza war has been ongoing for more than eight months. Thousands of Israelis have taken to the streets several times in recent months to demand the safe return of hostages from Gaza. The main demands of the protesters are quick return of hostages at any cost and early elections in the country.

In the interview, Netanyahu said, “Their military campaign in Rafah, the southernmost city of Gaza, is at the end.” The intense fight against Hamas is also at an end. But that doesn’t mean the war is over.’

Israel wants to establish a civilian administration to run Gaza after eliminating Hamas. Netanyahu said, “If possible, the administration will be formed with local Palestinians.” Along with that, the assistance of other countries in the region may be taken to provide humanitarian relief to Gaza.
