Word count: 389 words
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s aim to involve the United States in a wider regional war has come into focus as Israel’s conflict in Gaza intensifies, now in its fourth month. Recent developments indicate that Israel has escalated its military operations, specifically targeting and eliminating mid-level Hezbollah commanders through what appears to be well-planned assassinations.
Furthermore, suspicions have arisen regarding Israel’s involvement in a drone strike in a Beirut suburb, resulting in the death of a senior Hamas official. These actions have further inflamed tensions between Israel and Hezbollah, a well-armed Lebanese resistance movement with ties to Iran. In response, Hezbollah has retaliated by launching rocket attacks into northern Israel and conducting its own drone strikes.
To shed light on the potential consequences of Israel’s actions in Gaza, experts on Hezbollah, Amal Saad and Karim Makdisi, recently joined Jeremy Scahill and Murtaza Hussain on Intercepted for an in-depth discussion. One of the key topics addressed was the likelihood of a “great war” erupting against Israel as a result of its ongoing conflict in Gaza.
The conversation also delved into Iran’s role and its relationships with Hamas and Hezbollah. As tensions rise, understanding Iran’s potential involvement adds a layer of complexity to the situation. Additionally, the experts explored how President Joe Biden’s approach to the conflicts in Palestine and Lebanon compares to that of his predecessors.
Readers interested in gaining a comprehensive understanding of the discussion can look forward to the imminent release of the full transcript. This transcript will provide valuable insights into the viewpoints shared by Saad, Makdisi, Scahill, and Hussain.
As the conflict in Gaza continues and Israel’s military operations expand into Lebanon, concerns loom over the possibility of a wider regional war. The situation demands international attention and diplomatic efforts to de-escalate tensions and prevent further violence.
