Lebanon Says Hezbollah Pledges Not To Join War With Israel

Monday, 10/09/2023

Lebanese Foreign Minister Abdallah Bouhabib has officially confirmed that Hezbollah has committed to refrain from participating in any hostilities unless provoked by Israel.

On Sunday, Hezbollah fired rockets and shells at Israeli positions in a disputed area along the northern border. Soon after, Israel retaliated with armed drones. No injuries were reported on either side.

The Iran-backed terror group -- Iran's most powerful proxy -- cited their actions as an act of solidarity with the ongoing Hamas aggressions in the region.

In an official statement, the Hezbollah attributed the act as a demonstration of support for the "Palestinian resistance". The UN's peacekeeping troops, UNIFIL, have bolstered their presence in the border region since Saturday to prevent escalation.

The Israeli Ministry of Health has announced that in the Hamas attacks on the country, at least 800 Israelis have been killed, and 2,382 people have been injured so far. According to the report, 22 of the injured are in critical condition. In Israel's retaliatory attacks on the Gaza Strip, 493 people have lost their lives so far, and 2,750 people have been injured.

Yoav Gallant, the Israeli Defense Minister, issued a full blockade order on Gaza on Monday, stating that they have cut off electricity and will block the entry of food and fuel to the enclave.
