“Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said today they are “prepared for an extremely powerful action in the north” in reference to the recent escalation of fighting between Hezbollah and the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) on the border with Lebanon.

In a visit to the settlement of Kiryat Shmona, Netanyahu said that “whoever thinks that he can harm us and we will sit with our hands clasped has made a major mistake.”

On Monday, a large-scale rocket and drone attack by Hezbollah sparked massive fires in northern “Israel”, which required tremendous efforts by firefighting teams to put out.

“The ground burned yesterday and I am happy you put it out,” Netnayahu told the firefighters, “but the ground also burned in Lebanon.”
