Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant emphasized that while Israel prefers a diplomatic resolution, it is fully prepared for military confrontation if necessary. Speaking during a visit to troops stationed near Israel’s northern border with Lebanon, Gallant reiterated the importance of seeking a political solution but also underscored Israel’s readiness for conflict.

“We are working on a political solution. That is always the better option,” Gallant stated. Earlier this week, during his visit to the United States, Gallant had warned that Israel is preparing for all possible scenarios and that Hezbollah is well aware of the extensive damage Israel could inflict in the event of a war.

Hezbollah’s leader, Hassan Nasrallah, issued his own stark warning, promising a war with “no restraint and no rules” if Israel undertakes a significant offensive against Lebanon.

The escalating tensions have prompted several countries, including Germany, Canada, the Netherlands, and the United States, to advise their nationals to leave or avoid travel to Lebanon.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
