IDF Spokesman Hagari: ‘Hezbollah Is Jeopardizing the Future of Lebanon’

IDF Spokesman Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari released a video statement on Sunday, June 16, addressing Hezbollah’s increasing escalation on the northern border.

“The Hezbollah terror organization in Lebanon has been escalating its attacks against Israel. Since deciding to join the war that Hamas started on October 7th - Hezbollah has fired over 5,000 rockets; anti-tank missiles and explosive UAVs from Lebanon at Israeli families, homes, and communities,” Hagari stated.

“Hezbollah’s increasing aggression is bringing us to the brink of what could be a wider escalation - one that could have devastating consequences for Lebanon and the entire region. Hezbollah is jeopardizing the future of Lebanon - so that it can be a shield for Hamas. A shield for the Hamas terrorists who murdered the elderly, raped women, burned children, and kidnapped Jews, Muslims, and Christians - during their massacre on October 7th,” he added.

Hagari warned: “When we say that we will not let October 7th happen again on any one of our borders - we mean it. Because of Hezbollah’s refusal to comply with UN Security Council Resolution 1701 — because of Hezbollah’s military infrastructure; weapons and fire at Israel from the area south of the Litani River in southern Lebanon — and because of Lebanon’s failure to enforce 1701 on Hezbollah — Israel will take the necessary measures to protect its civilians — until security along our border with Lebanon is restored.”

“One way or another - we will ensure the safe and secure return of Israelis to their homes in Northern Israel. That is not up for negotiation.” (INN / VFI News)

“Lord, we thank You for being our shield from Hezbollah’s attacks and for giving us brave soldiers who work tirelessly to ensure our people’s safety. We pray that further attacks will be prevented and that Lebanon will dismantle this terrorist organization so that another war doesn’t erupt. We pray for peace and stability in the Middle East in Yeshua’s name.”
